While Week 9 wasn't quite as injury filled as Week 8, it still was tough for fantasy owners. Ben Roethlisberger went down (again), although he did put in almost a full game for his owners before leaving. Dion Lewis tore his ACL and is done for...

The last time the Bears and Chargers faced off in San Diego, was 2007 when former Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman led the visiting team to a 14-3 victory. That also was when LaDainian Tomlinson was in his prime as one of the NFL’s best...

It's weird when the Packers are out of wack, but it happens. During the Packers-Panthers game, Cam Newton and his team got ahead early and the effect of that made its way to the Packers' sideline. A few cheese heads,...

There was a scary scene out of Minnesota Sunday. During the Rams-Vikings game, Teddy Bridgewater began to scramble and ended up sliding to avoid a hit on the play. As he was going to the ground, Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner came rambling in and...

Week 8 was brutal in terms of injuries, so that leads to a long fantasy injury report for Week 9. Check out the quarterbacks and tight ends as well as the running backs, but the wide receiver list is so long, it needed to be broken up into two...

With six teams on bye, the thought would be the fantasy injury report for running backs would be shorter for Week 9, right? However, that is not the case, as Week 8 was brutal for injuries, leaving fantasy owners with plenty of names to pay...

While not many quarterbacks are on the Week 9 fantasy injury report, there are plenty of tight ends (below), as well running backs and wide receivers. Be sure to check the actives when they are released about 90 minutes before game time to ensure...

As few as three weeks ago, it would have been impossible for fans to imagine Green Bay’s visit to Charlotte as a must-win for the Packers. Aaron Rodgers and his mates looked to be the presumptive NFC Super Bowl representative, and while the...

It seems the Oakland Raiders have had the Pittsburgh Steelers' number in recent seasons. Since 2006, when the Silver and Black lost a franchise-record 14 games, the Raiders have defeated the Steelers four out of five times. This...

As dreadfully as this season has started for Tennessee, there is a glimmer of hope. Tennessee is only 2.5 games behind the leader of the AFC South, clearly the weakest division in the NFL. If the Titans still harbor any delusions of reaching...
