What do Billy Corgan with Smashing Pumpkins, David Lee Roth with Van Halen, and Adam Lambert with Queen all have in common? All terrible frontmen leading great bands. We are looking at the Detroit Lions today. You see where this is going? The Lions all of a sudden assembled an elite set of offensive weapons […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

Early in the morning, before the rest of the country is awake, we find a man. A man with a bag of footballs. He lines up his receivers and they go through drills and patterns and routes over and over again. They practice from early in the morning until late at night, with only the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
America’s team hasn’t been America’s champion (or anyone else in the world’s champion) going on 27 years now. In fact, they have won only three playoff games in the last 25 years. That’s one less than the Houston Texans, and four less than the New York Jets if you’re keeping count. It certainly isn’t for […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s odd to say that a team that finished 8-9 on the season and tied for last place in their division was lucky. But that’s exactly what the Browns were in 2021. In fact, it’s about the luckiest 8-9 record you might ever see. Of their eight wins, five of them were one-score affairs. I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We should #NeverForget that Chicago could have entered 2021 with any of Dak Prescott, Patrick Mahomes, or Deshaun Watson at quarterback. In 2016, the Bears passed on Dak Prescott in the draft six times when they had just 32-year old Jay Cutler at the position. In 2017, the Bears decided to trade FOUR draft picks […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I remember it like it was yesterday. We had just finished Week 4 of the NFL season. By that point, we were all basking in the warm glow of Sam Darnold being QB5 on the season, averaging an amazing 24.44 fantasy points per game. All of the Darnold truthers up in Noo Yawk, of which there are tens, were rejoicing in their prognostications that “ALL HEEZ NEEDS TO DO IS MOVE ON FROM THAT BUM ADAM GASE!”Please, blog, may I have some more?
Being a Buffalo Bills fan means you already have certain trigger words that cause severe mental anguish. Even the slightest mention of the words “wide right” is enough to make a Bills fan crash into the nearest folding table. If that wasn’t enough, after the 2022 playoffs you might as well add “13 seconds” and “squib kick” to the list of no-no, naughty words for Buffalonians. Then, of course, the Cincinnati Bengals had to go and rub it in during the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs.
The Bills’ exit from the playoffs was equal parts exciting and heartbreaking. But their late-season offensive surge that continued into the playoffs taught us some valuable lessons as we ponder the 2022 fantasy football season. Who are we buying and selling on the Bills for next season? Why not start with a guy who had a performance never before seen in a playoff game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A lot of things, and I mean A LOT of things, went wrong for the Falcons in 2021. They were supposed to have one of the more dynamic aerial attacks in the league with Calvin Ridley and rookie mega-man Kyle Pitts leading the way. Matt Ryan led the world in pass attempts in 2020 and the Falcons were top-10 in passing rate per game. But when the dust settled on the season, all that offensive hope vanished into the humid Georgia air.
The Falcons may have gone 7-10, but you wouldn’t know it to look at them. I swear to you, the season highlight video from their own team website prominently features a game where they needed a last second field goal to beat the freaking New York Giants:
With Calvin Ridley missing in action, Pitts hauling in just one score, and Mike Davis off somewhere trying to bribe other teams to sign free agent Cordarrelle Patterson, determining a buy and a sell for this sad sack franchise is a tall order. But I think I’ve cracked it. Let’s get into it for 2022.Please, blog, may I have some more?

“Buy Jonathan Taylor.” – July Donkey Teeth
After Jonathan Taylor’s five-touchdown performance this week, July Donkey can finally come out of hiding. You see, poor July Donkey was forced into hiding after being chased to the ends of the earth by the angry fantasy football echo chamber mob. In a secluded mountain cave, he made his home, living on nothing but wild berries and peyote root. Biding his time, until the all-clear siren sounded, as Jonathan Taylor crossed the goal line a 5th time on Sunday afternoon. Now July Donkey is returning to civilization, carrying a message for the fantasy world: buy Miles Sanders. Since Sanders and July Donkey went away, the Eagles’ offense has shifted their RB usage from non-existent, to somewhat existent. In his return to action, Sanders immediately handled his season-high, 16 carries. There’s a chance you can acquire the Eagles explosive back for RB3/flex type value and Sanders still has legitimate RB1 upside if the volume is there. Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell thiPlease, blog, may I have some more?
I just got in from leaf blowing, absolutely brutal. How has nobody come up with a better system to deal with leaves yet? What are the big tech companies spending all their resources on other than microchips for brain control? There’s a crisis in America that can be ignored no longer!Lx7#*&Gk Sorry, my hands are frozen because it’s like 4 degrees outside. Wait, why am I outside again?! The leaves have sucked me back in! Someone, please save me! *enter our hero D.K. Metcalf* While the touchdowns have been steady this year, with only one 100+ yard receiving performance on the season, Metcalf’s current owner may not be giving the Seahawks’ #1 the respect he deserves. This is especially true after the complete dud week 10 (3 catches for 26 yards) in Russell Wilson’s return to action. The athletic freak, Metcalf, has a higher upside than any other receiver in the game. Give him a chance to bring you in from the cold and save your season!

Week 9 was a busy news week in the NFL between the fatal car crash and all the vaccination/immunization drama. Too serious for me. Can’t we just go back to the Antonio Brown drama days? I mean the helmet and frozen foot drama days, before the rape accusation stuff. Boy, the NFL could really use some positive publicity. Or at least some more negative publicity that I can make jokes about! Know what else isn’t a joking matter? Buying Mike Williams! It’s gone under the news radar between all the other NFL injuries, the Gruden email scandal, Vaccine-gate, Ruggs’ downfall, etc.—but Williams has been nursing a sore knee for the past three games. Coincidentally, he’s had a total of only 6 receptions for 104 yards and no touchdowns during that stretch. When I click on the little news sticky note next to Big Mike’s name over on Yahoo? No mention of any knee issues. Rotoworld? No news updates since October 17th when “Williams did not practice this week but is going to push through the knee injury anyway.” I don’t think this is a coincidence. Williams has disappointed ever since the knee injury, and yet his fantasy owner may have no idea of the correlation due to the reporting gap. When healthy, he’s proven his elite WR1 upside with Herbert; see if you can steal him away at a bargain price.

Time. The great equalizer. An enigma wrapped in a riddle, smothered in Taco Bell mild sauce. At this time last week I was in Vegas making my 8th trip to the ATM in 24 hours. This week I’m in Death Valley, making my 8th trip to the ATM in 24 hours. Two weeks ago I was saying to sell D’Andre Swift and buy Miles Sanders. This week Colonel Miles Sanders is on crutches, frying up chicken and I’m about to tell you D’Andre Swift is a great buy. What a difference a couple weeks time can make. As for Swift, I’d look to take advantage of possible recency bias and bye-week desperation. He’s coming off a game where he totaled just 51 yards on 17 touches and now the Lions head into their bye This is the time of season where fantasy teams with losing records can’t afford to be patient through bye weeks, meaning bargains can be had by fantasy teams with winning records. Hopefully that’s you! Swift likely isn’t going to handle 15+ carries often, but his volume in the Detroit passing game gives him a solid floor in any type of PPR league and he’s already shown RB1 upside. If you can weather his upcoming bye week, toss an offer out there and see what happens.
