The tight end position has to be one of the hardest positions in fantasy football to rank. I mean who had Anthony Fasano as the third highest scoring tight end last week with 14.4 fantasy points? The truth is, you probably don’t even know...

The winds of change have bellowed through the fantasy running back rankings. Perennial top-10 running backs like Jeremy Hill and DeMarco Murray are falling fast, while newcomers such as Devonta Freeman and Dion Lewis enter the top 10 for the first...

By Week 3, we start to see trends with teams and kickers. For example, Pittsburgh went for the two-point conversion more than kicking the field goal (also, we've seen Josh Scobee struggle). More and more kickers are missing the extra point, so...

This is the first installment of a new weekly post that will discuss fantasy football players that are giving their owners headaches and heartburn. This week will admittedly be a little shorter and will be heavier on the patience side.This is...

The New York Football Giants are 0-2 at the start of this 2015 season. They have not played a complete game yet this season. They have taken leads into the fourth quarters of both games, only to make mental and tactical errors, on the field (...

Two years ago, noted B-movie producer and Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie decided to go for the blockbuster, rather than the product with substance and staying power. He courted then-Oregon coach Chip Kelly, continuing to woo the head Duck...

With one game left to play in Week 2, we are starting to see more of what to expect from certain teams. The New York Giants, for example, have a hard time keeping a lead. The New England Patriots have a high-powered offense that is seemingly...

Every week it happens. Someone on your starting fantasy roster, maybe even the stud that you are expecting (and needing) to carry your team to victory, completely and utterly sucks. You can do all the fancy calculations you want. You can check...

So it's come to this. The Seahawks are 0-2 on the season so far and fans are not happy. They are placing the blame on Russell Wilson's girlfriend Ciara, because apparently she has something to do with the team's play. They...

Each week, it appears a big-name fantasy player goes down with a multi-week injury. Unfortunately for Cowboy fans, they have been the hardest hit so far this season. In Week 2, Tony Romo fractured his left clavicle in Week 2. The original timetable...

Last week the Indianapolis Colts didn't look like a Super Bowl-worthy team. Yes, it was just Week 1, but last week’s 27-14 loss in Buffalo exposed many, if not all, of the Colts’ most glaring weaknesses.  The offensive...

Julio Jones' hands are some amazing things. The Falcons receiver made an incredible catch over a defender in the game against the Giants. The scary part? Jones makes it look effortless. Jones knows how to rise up (no pun intended).

It's no secret Stephen A. Smith is not a fan of Jay Cutler, but the line has to be drawn somewhere, right? During the Bears game against the Cardinals, Cutler threw an interception and got injured trying to make the tackle. Peak...

Several elite wide receivers missed a fair amount of practice time leading into their Week 2 matchups. Are any of these important pass catchers in danger of not playing today or should you consider not starting them for your fantasy team? Get the...

If it’s possible this early in the season, there will be some desperation in the stadium Sunday when the Cowboys visit Philadelphia, thanks to the Eagles’ week-one belly-flop in Atlanta. You know the statistics by now. Fewer than 10% of...

The Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars meet each other for the seventh time on Sunday afternoon. The Dolphins have a 4-3 (including postseason) series advantage. Both teams enter their Week 2 matchup in different ways. Miami...

We did take an early at some of the big-name players that were injured heading into Week 2 on Thursday, but now we have an official list of the running backs (and one quarterback) that may affect your fantasy lineup decisions heading into the 1 p.m...

While most of the questionable players were in the 1 p.m. ET games this week (fantasy owners breathe a sigh of relief), there are still several noteworthy players on the injury reports for the later games. Take a look at the early game injury...

The man who contemplated retirement on an annual basis — and actually went through with it a few times, only to change his mind and come back for more — has found peace and happiness now that he’s finally embraced it. And not...

After Week 1, we have a little more clarity on what the fantasy football picture looks like, although it is hard to say someone is going to have a good or bad season after just one game. However the weekly rankings can certainly change from week to...

The New York Giants' defense played far better in Week 1 than anyone expected against the Dallas Cowboys for 58 minutes and 27 seconds. The last 1:33 seconds was not very good, but that was probably the offense's fault. The Giants...
