If there's something even more distressing than the porous Pittsburgh Steelers' secondary that came out of their 28-21 loss to New England on Sept. 10, it might be the way they handled the defeat. The focus of the Steelers after the...

I started slow in the NFL just to get an early grasp on what went down in week one. The league had itself a crazy week one with various injuries and finishes that left fans wondering what just happened. That said, it's Week 2 and we have a...

As we look to Week 2, it's important to know which players suffered injuries in Week 1. If their playing status is in doubt, you'll need to make sure you have replacements in your lineup. Hopefully your bench is deep enough to fill the void...

Don’t try to tell anybody associated with the Chiefs or Broncos that their Thursday night game is not so meaningful, just because this is the second week of the NFL regular season. In an AFC West that looks to be as competitive as...

Peyton Manning
Week 1 of the NFL regular season is in the books, and the quarterback ranks now have at least one week of data to go on. Some poor performances (Peyton Manning) caused some players to drop a bit for Week 2. Also, we learned that some...

A common strategy in fantasy football is to stream defenses. While only one week of data is hard to base a season-long ranking on, we can tell that some defenses are stronger than others. In 2014, a popular streaming option is whichever team...

Thankfully the tight end position missed the injury bug that stung the wide receivers in Week 1, so all the big names are ready to go for your fantasy team in Week 2. Last week Rob Gronkowski proved that once again he is head and shoulders...

Julio Jones was going to be my favorite fantasy wide receiver for Week 2, but with the hamstring news that broke on Wednesday I am worried enough to knock him down the rankings a bit. That leaves the top spot open for Antonio Brown once...
