With only two teams on bye in Week 6, most fantasy owners aren't going to be missing too many players. Tampa Bay and Minnesota are off this week, so plan accordingly. After five weeks, we have a better grasp of what defenses look like. We can...

Fortunately for fantasy owners, there are just two teams on bye in Week 7 compared to four last week. But that also means you have more options to choose from for your starting lineup. So what should you do at quarterback and defense/special teams...

Week 5 brought some surprising and somewhat unexpected fantasy performances from running backs while others failed to produce in accordance with where they were drafted. But that’s how it goes, right? Before we turn our focus to Week 6, let...

No matter what happened last week when it comes to wide receivers and tight ends at least fantasy owners can take solace in this: Allen Robinson, Doug Baldwin, Brandin Cooks, Travis Kelce and Jimmy Graham are all back in Week 6. Before I discuss...

Jerry Rice, Happy Birthday
While many fans debate who the greatest quarterback or running back in NFL history is, there is little dispute about the title of best wide receiver. Jerry Rice has pretty much guaranteed that. Emerging from Mississippi Valley State University in...

It was a second straight winless week for me on the NFL side of the ledger, as I continue to be victim of late-game worthless touchdowns. This league has a way of humbling a gambler a bit. It's ironic because last year I was extremely hot on...

Adam Vinatieri
Stephen Gostkowski looks to be a safe bet as the top fantasy kicker on a weekly basis once again with Tom Brady back, but it was Adam Vinatieri who dominated the position in Week 5.   Vinatieri, who at 43 and now in his 21st season just...

After a couple of OK, but not great outings, the Arizona defense/special teams showed up in a major way in its last game, which is why the Cardinals occupy the top spot for the Week 6 fantasy rankings. The bye week schedule also had something to do...

Marcus Mariota
Tom Brady sure didn’t seem rusty after missing the first four games of the season, which is why he once again leads off the Week 6 fantasy quarterback rankings. Brady led the position with 406 yards and added in three touchdown passes in New...

Martellus Bennett
As was expected, Rob Gronkowski finally came through for his fantasy owners last week, as New England’s top tight end posted his first 100-yard game. However, it was his teammate and fellow tight end, Martellus Bennett who really enjoyed...

Allen Robinson
The good news is that a sense of normalcy has returned to the fantasy wide receiver rankings for Week 6 simply because Jacksonville, Kansas City, New Orleans and Seattle are back from their bye. That doesn’t mean, however, that there aren...

One of the interesting aspects of fantasy flex rankings is that it presents you with a snapshot of how the elite running backs compare to the stud wide receivers. For example, Le’Veon Bell is baaaack and crushing it week to week, while...

San Diego enters tonight’s game with a 1-4 record after dropping a third straight in heartbreaking fashion. The Chargers continue to find new ways to lose, this time squandering yet another late fourth quarter lead on the road against the...

Week 5 had its ups and downs for me in daily fantasy football (DFS). Many of my Top Play calls were solid while a few stunk it up (A.J. Green, Jerick McKinnon, Kyle Rudolph I’m looking at you). This inconsistency hurt otherwise solid...

And then there was one. Undefeated team that is, with Minnesota the lone remaining NFL team with an unblemished record just five weeks into the season. Both Denver and Philadelphia were handed their first losses on Sunday, the former losing at...

After a wild start to the NFL season featured a ton of close games, Week 5 seemed to take a bit of a breather and serve up an unusually high number of games that were not even close. Whether that’s a blip or a trend remains to be seen but...

Week 5 of the fantasy football season is now a wrap and there’s just one undefeated team left in the NFL (my Vikings), but this is about the players, and not the teams. Specifically, which key players should you stay the course with and...

After dealing with four teams on a bye, Week 6 gives fantasy owners a bit of a reprieve. Only the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be off in Week 6, so fantasy owners can likely look to the waiver wire to replace any injured players...

After winning 15 consecutive games and making it all the way to the Super Bowl last season, the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they limp into Week 5 with a 1-3 record and a two-game losing...

It takes quite a bit to overshadow two of the most historically successful franchises in the NFL but that will likely be the case on Sunday night as the two biggest names on a grand stage won’t be Aaron Rodgers and Eli Manning. While most...

No matter where each team has been located, the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders have been bitter rivals since they both entered the NFL in 1960. On Sunday, they will continue their division rivalry, this time in Oakland.   Last...

It’s Week 5 and even with four teams on bye, the injury report is pretty full and something fantasy owners definitely need to pay attention to. How bad it is? Every position is represented, which means there’s even a fantasy-relevant...
