Start/Sit – Week 6

Posted: October 17, 2015 in Start/Sit

Greetings, Wagoners! If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably already taken (or at least considered.. laughed at?) some of my advice, and for that I am moderately sincerely grateful. I won’t bore you with a long intro this week because a)I’m not sure anybody reads it, and b)I might be getting carpal tunnel and I need to save the strength in my hands for when I’m wringing them out waiting to find out whether Odell’s playing tomorrow night or not.  (more…)

You guys, funny story. I play in a 16-team league (my only league this year) and we use FAAB for our waiver system. *HAHAHA* That’s not the funny part. Or if it is, keep reading, because you’re an easy crowd and this seems promising. This past Wednesday, when waivers cleared, I woke up to find that I was the proud owner of a brand new shiny RB by the name of Matt Jones. I laughed at my league for not outbidding my $32. I was very pleased.  So pleased, in fact, that I made a waiver-claim-win-induced decision to place my new claim directly into my lineup for the week. A TNF blowout, goal line fumble, and 3.20 fantasy points later and the joke is complete, only now my league mates are the ones laughing (and you, of course, if your earlier chuckles were any indication). Anyhoo, now that you understand I am definitely losing this week, take some advice and let’s see if I can bring you down with me help you avoid a similar fate…. (more…)

A four day week of football, you say? Merry Christmas, I say. With last night’s yawn-fest out of the way, we are now treated with two games that feature players that we all actually own! Much excite! (more…)

Welcome back, Wagoners! Here’s hoping you’ve advanced to your championship game and have made it there (at least in part) due to the recommendations I’ve made this season either here or on Twitter. Whether that’s the reason you’ve made it this far or not, you’re here now and I’ve got a couple of thoughts about tonight’s hideous matchup for you. As usual, if you don’t see you’re guys (and I hope for your sake that you don’t), hit me up on Twitter @waiverwagon for help! (more…)

Wagoners! Now is the time for the toughest lineup decisions and most agonizing tinkering sessions we’ve had in 14 weeks. I will do my best to guide you through the madness today, all-the-while obsessing over lineup decisions of my own. Today’s post is full of gut-picks only. Obviously, I’ve fact-checked all season long, but sometimes facts don’t tell the whole story (like in message board debates). Read on, good luck, and STOP TINKERING! (more…)

Welcome back, Wagoners! I sincerely hope that, if you’re reading this, you either a) Had a 1st round bye, b) Play in a goofy 17-week league (like I do, ugh), c) Advanced to round two in your playoffs because of my advice, or d) Genuinely enjoy my insights and comedy/sarcasm. Any of the above reasons will suffice. Now let’s talk about tonight’s matchup between two sound defensive units with QB issues.

It’s playoff time! I hope that, if you’re reading this, you’re either headed into your league’s playoffs or you just really enjoy sarcasm and the occasional correct prediction! Either way, I’m glad you’ve chosen to check out my website and I hope I can help you make that crucial lineup call that helps you advance one step closer to digital greatness. As always, if you don’t see your guys, tweet @waiverwagon and I’ll help you from there. Good luck!
