Charcandrick West
Week 5 brought some greta misfortune for fantasy owners, and the NFL as a whole losing Jamaal Charles. This will open the door for a new running back to fly off the waiver wires this week as well, but the situation in KC may not be as optimal...

Peyton Manning
Week 5 has come and gone and another devastating injury strikes the NFL (and fantasy), as it loses another of its biggest stars in Jamaal Charles. The season-ending torn ACL will open the door for Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, who...

Jamaal Charles
We had a slight lull in major injuries for Week 4, but on Sunday, a big-name running back went down, much to the dismay of his fantasy owners (not to mention himself and his team!). When Jamaal Charles hit the Arrowhead Stadium turf Sunday...

The New York Giants (2-2) are now headed in the right direction, tied for the lead in the NFC East. The San Francisco 49ers (1-3) are headed nowhere fast, sitting at the bottom of what is arguably the best division in the NFC, and desperately...

For several years, a Denver matchup with Oakland was a chance for Peyton Manning to pad his statistics and for his teammates to cruise to an easy win against a franchise that had usually been comfortably ensconced in the AFC West basement. That...

It was the worst of times and... yeah that's about it. The Dallas Cowboys (2-2) are having serious personnel issues coming out of their tough defeat Sunday night against the New Orleans Saints. Linebacker Sean Lee went down with a...

Jay Cutler
As we enter Week 5 of the NFL and fantasy seasons, we have more injuries to analyze. At least we didn’t lose another quarterback in Week 4, so be thankful for the little things. Actually the only quarterback on the injury report is Jay Cutler...

There are plenty of wide receivers on the Week 5 injury reports, which is not something fantasy owners want to see. The early-season carnage has been so bad that several teams have more than one wideout on the injury report. That is the...

The Arizona Cardinals enter Sunday's game atop the NFC West standings. But the Cardinals suffered their first loss last week during a 24-22 upset by the St. Louis Rams. Arizona's late-game rally fell short as St. Louis managed to gain...

After a quarter of the NFL season has been played, some big-name fantasy running backs are already either struggling or not playing. It's tough drafting running backs early and watching as they just take up space on your bench and you are...

Even with four teams on bye in Week 5, there is no lack of injured running backs that fantasy owners have to deal with. The first crop can be found here, and below you can get the lowdown on those playing in the late game and a couple of other...

Four games into the NFL and fantasy seasons and the injury reports are littered with wide receivers. A few of these key wideouts (Brandin Cooks, Pierre Garcon) are listed as probable and put in a full practice at some point during the week. These...

Last week, St. Louis knocked off one undefeated team. Sunday, the Rams will take aim at another. A trip to 4-0 Green Bay isn’t generally anybody’s preferred destination, but after last week’s win in Arizona against the previously-...

It was widely assumed before the start of the season that the Washington Redskins would be one of the worst teams, if not the worst team, in the NFL in 2015. Currently, Washington sits atop the NFC East in a three way tie with the Giants and...

One of the more intriguing matchups of Week 5 in the NFL will take place at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati as the Seattle Seahawks will be looking to upend the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals. These two teams last met during the 2011 regular season...

New Orleans may not make the playoffs this year, especially since the Saints are three games behind Carolina and Atlanta in the suddenly strong NFC South, but if they do somehow sneak into the postseason, Drew Brees’s 80-yard TD pass to C.J....

With a quarter of the fantasy football season behind us, we can now look back, take stock from what we've learned, and look ahead with some knowledge. During the preseason, we just look at the players and teams with what we think we know. ...

What craziness is going to happen this week in the NFL? Every week there is someone, somewhere that has quite the game and makes a name for himself, only to seemingly disappear forever after that. In the fantasy world, we could care less about...
