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…)

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 for round two of week 13! I hope you each had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with delicious food and heaping servings of fantasy points. Things went pretty well for my Turkey Day Start/Sit column with Marshawn Lynch being the lone missed call. Yeah.
Anyway, here’s how week 13’s remaining games are going to go, based on the way I see it. Good luck! (more…)

First of all, congratulations Oakland Raiders for your TNF upset! It’s the second biggest upset of the season (with the biggest upset obviously coming from the Latavius Murray owners who left him on their bench). I told you to bench DMC, I mentioned Murray being one of my primary reasons, but I certainly couldn’t have predicted that sort of outburst of fantasy goodness. Unfortunately, it appears as though Murray may have gotten a concussion in the contest so we may not hear much more out of him this season, depending on the severity. Moving on, let’s take a look at what’s left of Week 12 of our fantasy season. (more…)

The NFC South lead is on the line in what should be a very exciting and fantasy-friendly ballgame. Carolina comes into this one having lost a tough matchup at home in the last minute to Seattle, while New Orleans is looking to build off of their blowout of a Green Bay team that blew Carolina out two short weeks ago. In a game where defense is optional, look for big production totals from all familiar fantasy parties. (more…)
