For a very special Halloween episode, Nick and JB switch roles while previewing week 9, with Nick making the Up and Down calls while JB gets to grill him for it. It turns out the co-hosts actually agree on most topics, including Nick finally admitting David Wilson isn’t fantasy relevant.
The 49ers are on bye this week so that means you don’t have to worry about what running back has to face them, but you do have to worry about who will be sitting in for Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter on your fantasy teams.Please, blog, may I have some more?
No Brady or Tebow this week, how will any of our fantasy teams survive? Considering how many weapons Brady has at his disposal, having The Patriots on bye does cut the number of eligible fantasy receivers approximately in half, but there is still plenty of talent available if you look hard enough.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There’s a Hunger Games-heightened awareness that kung-fu grips your junipers once lineups lock for the week. The endless control you once possessed within that chlorine-purified free agent pool or the comfort of a flex play switch fades into the distance then bursts into a monster truck tire downhill race of chaotic NFL RedZone quad-box onslaught.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Have you looked back at your team and been a flop with picks?
Have you been this way since 1996?
While we may not be at 34th and Vine, it’s certainly time for a drink of FA Potion Number 9.
Note: For those of you out east being impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we hope that all of you are safe and secure as this monster of a storm works over the eastern third of the country this week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Arizona Cardinals must’ve got a clean bill of health from their last visit to the clinic. So clean, they went out of there way to avoid Michael Crabtree every time he caught the ball. Michael went for 72 yards and two touchdowns on 5 receptions during a night in which I saw more fumbled attempts at wrapping up than a new server at Taco Bell.Please, blog, may I have some more?
For years, the thing about fantasy football that annoyed me the most was the Running Back by Committee. Belichick and Shanahan were the bane of my existence, and it always seemed like the RB I had was the one who got less carries or who got their TD vultured.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was originally going to lead off with talking about Stafford and his breakout performance for the year as he’s been letting many of the people who drafted him down so far. He did indeed look like the Stafford of old today, which means he still can’t run faster than Peyton Manning and he still will make silly mistakes like his double coverage chuck to Calvin for a pointless INT.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s pretty hard to believe that we’re halfway through the 2012 NFL season. I know there’s 17 weeks, but with most leagues wrapping up their championships in week 16, it’s a good mid-point marker.
When you’re halfway through and have a middling or losing fantasy team, it’s easy to feel like you’re already out of it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
