The name of the game this week is injury management. Three members of the top tier of wide receivers (Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, and Reggie Wayne) are all dinged up heading into Week 8. Chris Cooley is out for at least a month, possibly the entire season. Jermichael Finley won’t be back for at least […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best blend of accurate and bold weekly projections for QB/RB/WR/TE + PK + Defensive Teams and IDP as well as a kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
So this week’s strategery has a new format to completely disorient and befuddle you! The first change is that I have added DVOA, which is a system developed by Football Outsiders to measure the true value of a defense. I like it to help offset the fantasy football points allowed to QBs/RBs which is easily […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mohamed Massaquoi: in addition to having the majority of all vowels in his name (except for that elusive “Y”) Massaquoi also gets the majority of targets. This past week he was targeted 9 times (4 more than Robiskie, the next closest receiver) and had two targets inside the five yard line. By now it’s clear […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Formula: Rating = Amount of Talent (Individual + Team Support) + Opportunity Tier I Larry Fitzgerald 20 (10+10) – I have been harping on this for a few weeks. I discussed the situation extensively in Game Day Companion on Sunday. Get Larry Fitzgerald. Period. Steven Jackson 18 (9+9) – Can somebody get this guy a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A broken fibula seems like it might not be that bad. I mean fibula, it’s like a tiny lie or something, right? Well, whatever it is, Leon Washington is done for the season. I had high hopes for Washington and it’s sad to see him go, but life goes on so drop his ass for […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sunday’s finally here! To start things off we have our “Matchup Savers,” players that you can start today if you’re in a pinch due to the bye week, injuries, etc. I do all of this within the context of 12 team leagues that are competitive. Often there will be more talented/valuable players than these available- […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are on the cusp of week 7. Before we know it the Colts will be 14-0 and we’ll be talking about if they should sit Manning or go for an undefeated season and blah friggin blah. I don’t want to be there yet! I want to stay in the heart of the season forever! […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here it is Ladies and Gents, the Ground Game Preview for Week 7. One thing I would like to reinforce about our “rating system,” which I have blatantly stolen from Mark, is that when we upgrade or downgrade a player we’re always doing so within the context of their value. Our goal is to give […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mosey on over to Rookie Blitz to read the newest fantasy football roundtable. Like every week we give our fantasy sleepers and busts for the weekend. I’m high on Mike Wallace as a sleeper and low on Steve Smith (CAR) as a bust. You can check out why and see the other bloggers’ picks. If […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A large part of rating players and making roster recommendations is risk management. Every player has a risk/reward ratio. Clearly, if it were possible to fill your roster with low-risk, high-reward players, that’d be the way to go. In most leagues, however, some portion of your roster is comprised of players with serious question marks. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
