The end of another NFL season is upon us as Super Bowl LVII is almost ready for kickoff this Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. To all of us sports nerds, the Super Bowl is an unofficial holiday. Whether we’re fans of the teams playing or not, we gather in groups to load […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Here we are…Fantasy Football Championship Week. If you’re playing for all the marbles, congratulations. I’m still alive in two of my three leagues, so I can’t wait for the games to get started. The semifinals were a bear for my teams, falling behind on Thursday night in one league and the same during the early […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The penultimate edition of the Target Trends article is here. If you’re still alive in the final four of your fantasy playoffs, congratulations. Don’t start coasting yet. The games get more competitive as you go, and as we all know, anything can happen. To steal a phrase from poker, all you need is a chip […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Can you believe the fantasy football regular season is over? As it tends to happen every year, the NFL season takes so long to get started, but once it does, it seems to go by at a blazing pace. Despite the speed, the regular fantasy season is a grind. For those reading this, you’re likely […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s crunch time. The final week of the regular fantasy season is here in most leagues, and if yours are like mine, only a few teams have secured their playoff tickets. What’s more, these must-win games come as the final six teams take their bye weeks. Thanks, NFL! Before we look ahead, let’s take a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 12 gave us a temporary reprieve from the bye weeks. All 32 teams were in action, and fantasy owners were thankful for a number of big performances over the long weekend. Of course, there were a few turkeys along the way too, but you won’t find those in this article. I’m all about the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 11 was strange in the NFL. It started on Thursday night with the Titans planting a flag at Lambeau Field after a convincing win versus the Packers. On Sunday, the Eagles needed a comeback versus a stingy Colts defense; the Patriots won a game where the only TD was scored by a punt return […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 10 provided us with a receiving performance for the record books. For the first time in NFL history, we saw a rookie WR catch his first three TDs in the same game. Coming into Week 10, Christian Watson received a total of 14 targets, converting 10 of those for 88 yards. With Romeo Doubs […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 9 is in the books, and while we didn’t see the same number of high-scoring players as last week, we saw one who probably won’t be matched for a long time. Joe Mixon scored a whopping 54 fantasy points (PPR), which included 153 yards and four TDs on the ground. He also “chipped in” […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week in the books, and what a week it was. We saw 10 players score multiple TDs, rushing or receiving. Of those, four players (Alvin Kamara, Tony Pollard, D’Onta Foreman and A.J. Brown) had three scores. We even say the NFL Swiss Army Knife, Christian McCaffrey, scores the elusive football hat trick (passing, rushing […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mitch Staniger is enjoying a much-deserved vacation this week. When the bullpen phone rang and my number called, I was ecstatic to get an opportunity to share not only my “Target Trends” but also my “Waiver Wire” thoughts with you this week. I feel like the football gods are taking it easy on me though, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome back for another exciting episode of “Target Trends.” Another round of games means we get more data to analyze. More data usually means our focus becomes a little clearer. Before we get to this week’s picks, let’s put that theory to the test and grade my Week 7 trends. If you didn’t get the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
