We are already 3 games into the fantasy football semifinals and so far DeAndre Hopkins has been our best performer. Everyone else has been a bit wishy washy to this point. Today should bring some action so let’s take a look at the weather and injuries.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The first week of the playoffS usually give me about 7 hours of crippling nerves during the afternoon while the match-ups slowly shake out before the final two games. This week is no different. I am in a really close match up as I write this late on Sunday afternoon. It is in my main home league and it’s likely going to come down to Adam Thielen Vs. Allen Robinson. I hope that your match ups went well or you’re at least in a position to get the win tonight. Let’s talk about some of the performances from the Sunday afternoon slate.Please, blog, may I have some more?
All there is left to determine fantasy playoff spots is the terrible NFC East showdown tonight and whatever tiebreaker your league uses. I hope that the results have ended in your favor because I’m rooting for you and I want you to keep clicking in December.
As I combed through the scoreboards of the leagues that I play in, scoring seemed like it was a little bit lower than usual yesterday. Well, until Antonio Brown and James Conner stepped onto the field. By the way, the Steelers and the Chargers was the perfect night cap. For me, the night game always leaves a lasting impression for how the football week was.
Most of my Sunday afternoons are spent flipping back and forth from the red zone channel to games that have heavy implications for me personally. If I’m watching the red zone channel and Josh Allen pops up on full screen, you better believe that I’m flipping to see what the Panther and Bucs or the Bears and Giants are up to. Watching condensed games is pretty cool and I do that pretty often, but it doesn’t feel the same because I already know the results. My point is, the Sunday night game is the only game of the day that I can get lost in the game flow and the narratives. Let’s get to the results that stuck out in week 13.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week is a play in week for a lot of readers, so it can be looked at as an extra playoff week. I certainly have a couple of leagues that I am looking to make a final push to snag a spot in the post season, including our writer’s league. It’s not looking great thanks to Michael Thomas disappearing on Thursday night. But hey, miracles happen.

That’s right, I am right smack-dab in the middle of a November blizzard. So far, I have shoveled the driveway twice today and it’s probably going to happen a third time. I can’t stress enough how depressing this is considering it was over 50 degrees on Thanksgiving. The terrible thing about being an adult is in the manufacturing industry I don’t think that they have snow days. At least, I have never heard of it. I upgraded my car situation last summer, so that excuse is out the window too. It’s now in the middle of the second quarter of the night game when I am finally getting a chance to start this so I am most likely going to keep it pretty short.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and got all fat and sassy. One more day until we all go back to work, but hey, at least there is a decent-sized slate for your Sunday viewing pleasure. Most trade deadlines have passed so you’re stuck with what you have besides the waiver wire. So fire up those line up questions! I know there are a few of you left out there!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The New Orleans Saints’ offense was the story of this week. In a season of juiced up score boards, they are an even bigger exception to the standard over the past three weeks. Having pieces of this offense may be essential to a fantasy football playoff run if you don’t have Todd Gurley or Kareem Hunt. At this point, your trade deadline is probably a thing of the past, but you can most likely add Tre’quan Smith. Tre’quan is 13% owned in ESPN Leagues and 26% owned in Yahoo leagues.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are two weeks away from the fantasy playoffs. I looked outside and saw snow on the ground this morning and it’s insane how time flies. Hopefully it slows down a little this week because I’m on vacation from my day job. Three vacation days for 9 straight days off? Talk about a steal. Anyways, this only affects you because my Monday column will come out around lunch time this week. I’ll be writing on Monday morning instead of Sunday night this week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m bored with reviewing five or six games per week. I feel suffocated, you know? Why keep me tied down to just writing about half of Sunday’s games? It’s my Monday column, why not bring the realness. Like Marky Mark says in The Other Guys, “I’m a peacock, you gotta let me fly!” I want to go position by position and see how it flows.
So what are two fun categories to correctly identify each? Well, ‘Stars’ is easy. It’s clear and to the point. What could possibly categorize something so blind-siding and awful that it sucks the life right out of your fantasy team that stays with the astrology theme? There has to be something that’s, let’s say, related to the misery of being a Raiders fan. There literally can’t be anything worse. I’ve got it. Black holes. Now that we have that covered, let’s start with quarterbacks…Please, blog, may I have some more?
I feel really bad for Dez Bryant. It’s the only human reaction to have when somebody has something happen to them that derails a dream or destiny, I suppose. Another part of me hates this because I wanted to be right about him being a non-factor for the Saints. That’s obviously the least important part of this whole Dez Bryant roller coaster. I hope that you didn’t sell out for the dream of early 2010’s Dez Bryant, but if you did, let me help you out in the comment section.Please, blog, may I have some more?
