As the bye weeks come to an end with only the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans off in Week 13, the waiver wire may not be a flush for fantasy owners as it has been. By this point, many have already clinched a playoff spot and done so with...

The fantasy running back injury report for the remainder of the Week 12 games isn’t that lengthy, but still worth paying attention to. Philadelphia’s Ryan Mathews (knee) has already been ruled out for the Monday night game against Green...

Hopefully your fantasy teams got off to a good start for Week 12 with the Thanksgiving Day games, but if not, there’s still time and plenty of games to go.   This is the first week since Week 3 where all 32 teams are in action, which...

Week 12 of the fantasy football season gets started with a trio of Thanksgiving games that could see some big numbers from a couple of running backs. Le’Veon Bell should fare well against the Colts at home, while Ezekiel Elliott’s...

There’s not a lot of separation at the top of the fantasy tight end rankings for Week 12. Any of the top six could make a case for being No. 1.   Once again, one of the main things to keep an eye on at the position entering this week...

Matt Bryant
Through 10 games, the kicker with the most fantasy points (depending on league scoring) is Matt Bryant. He was on bye last week, so he wasn’t a part of an injury-marred Week 11 that also saw kickers missing at a record rate – there were...

It may be a gamble, but the Miami defense/special teams is the No. 1-ranked fantasy DST for Week 12. Last week, the Dolphins were a popular streaming option against Los Angeles and although they didn’t rack up the fantasy points, they did a...

No teams are on bye in Week 12, but one significant injury and matchups have a big impact on the fantasy quarterback rankings. Four of the top five are playing on the road, which is always tough. Ben Roethlisberger, in particular, has vastly...

As has been the case for most of this fantasy season, wide receivers make up the majority of the injury report for Week 11. Add to that four teams on bye and it may be another tough week for owners to find enough serviceable starting options....
