NFL training camps are in full swing with league-wide preseason action ready to commence later this week. Better still, the official start of the regular season is a little more than a month away, which means this is a perfect time to update Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Big Board.
Following the end of a fantasy football season, hindsight is always 20/20. It can be entertaining to look back at the draft results to see where certain players were taken in comparison to how they finished the season.
Week 16 is the fantasy championship for most leagues. Fantasy owners have to put forth their best lineup, even knowing that many of the players are banged up at this point. Also, fantasy owners need to remember that most games are on Saturday so lineups need to be set early.
Welcome to the injury report for Week 16, otherwise known as fantasy football championship week. At this point, fantasy owners know that they are going to be playing starters that are not 100 percent healthy. And because most games are on Saturday this week, the practice schedule was a little skewed.
Welcome to Week 16, most likely the fantasy championship game. This is the week fantasy owners have been playing for, have been preparing for. At this point, you're starting the players that have gotten you this far.
Over the past four weeks, LeSean McCoy has been a top-three fantasy running back with four straight games of more than 100 yards from scrimmage. He’s rushed for 100 in three of those and has scored a total of five touchdowns during that span as well.
While the Atlanta defense has been better in the second half of the season, they still are among the most generous towards fantasy tight ends. Greg Olsen has put together two solid games in a row, finishing with more than 80 receiving yards in each game, something he hadn’t done since Week 6.
As it relates to kickers, the 2016 fantasy season has been all about Justin Tucker. After going three-for-three last week against Philadelphia, Tucker still has yet to miss a field goal or an extra point this season, although the one he had blocked in New England in Week 14 does count as a “miss” on the official stat sheet.
