Week 12 is now three games old and most trade deadlines have come and gone, so this week’s Smash Back will be short and sweet. Just because your league no longer allows trades this season, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue improving your team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
How art thou, Razzballians? Where art thou, fallen fantasy comrades? Even backups were sacrificed at the fantasy alter in week 8, leaving me to seriously consider picking up Chris Ogbonnaya with the third overall waiver claim. I must be crazy, but what the hell; at least I’m in good company.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Wassup guys? By now we know the drill. I’m looking at target trends and you’re looking for a W on gameday. Let’s rock.
Sensational in Week Six
Michael Crabtree: So far this season the crab tree has been more crabby than fruitful and more gimpy than nimble. However, this past Sunday the former first rounder showed his pedigree, catching nine passes for 77 yards on a whopping 15 targets (ten more than anyone else on the team). I’ve spotted him on waivers in two of my leagues and chances are, other impatient owners have dropped him too. He’s a number one receiver with talent and the way the Niners are playing, I would want this guy on my team. With the golden boys on bye, your chances of acquiring Crabtree are even greater.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up weekend warriors? It’s time for another installment of Target(s) Practice. It’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through the regular season and so far this year the only thing that’s been predictable is that all of your best fantasy players are going to get injured. At least that’s the case with my team and I’m sure it’s the case with many of yours. The good news about this fake sport is that there are always guys out there on the waiver wire, waiting to be snagged by savvy owners. We don’t make excuses in this game, we make moves. So let’s see if I can help you out.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hola Razzballians. We are finally starting to settle in to the NFL season. At this point you should be expecting some trends to develop, but many trenders were tarnished in week three (see the law office of Green,Davis, Simpson, Burleson, and Branch). Trying to predict what will happen in this crazy fake sport is like trying to prevent Christopher Walken from playing the creepy guy in every movie he’s in. It’s just not happening, but let’s try anyway.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello all you fantasy footballers; I’m glad to back for another installment of target(s) practice. This year I’ll be switching things up a bit by including tight ends and running backs. After all, they’re people too and they’re just as important for setting your game day lineups. Obviously this information will be particularly valuable for you PPR nuts, but targets lead to touches and touches lead to touchdowns so everyone should benefit from this discussion. As always, feel free to comment, criticize, or question but be gentle; I bruise like a peach. Let’s get started.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy Football thoughts and opinions heading into NFL Week 1.
New Orleans 34, Green Bay 42
- I think the NFL should have used this version of an American anthem to kick off the season.
- Pierre Thomas, not Darren Sproles, was the running back in the first part of the two minute drill.
The news of the day is of course labor negotiations and that news is as boring as watching the MLB Home Run Derby. The speculation continues to be that a deal is a week or two away. All I know is that they are still talking and that’s good.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy footballers are always looking for that hidden gem late in their fantasy drafts. That’s where fantasy titles are won and lost. Anyone can pick in the top 5 rounds. It’s the owners that find breakout players in rounds 10 or later that end up winning fantasy titles. I prefer to be that guy because I like winning fantasy titles. I also like preventing others in my league from winning fantasy titles. That’s just how I roll. The time to find these late round gems is now.Please, blog, may I have some more?
