I drafted Jonathan Taylor… five times. Five times I had the first pick and I took JT. CMC, Ekeler and Henry were all close in my rankings but I always took Taylor. Unsurprisingly, I lost every one of those leagues. I know I’m not the only one either. Taylor was so good in 2022, he […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, folks, your buddy Mitch is back after a couple of weeks with some bad news. We lost our two title games, and frankly, it was not close. We had two byes headed into the semis, won both handily, and had high hopes for the finals even though we were clear underdogs to start the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This final installment of the waiver wire column will be shorter than previous versions, like the Week 16 article. The main reason is that few teams are remaining…only two for each league that wraps up with the Week 17 championship matchup. A quick look back at our Week 16 recommendations: we hit with Brock Purdy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Imagine this line as belted out by Bruce Buffer….”IT’S TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!!!!!!” You know it, folks, it is officially fantasy football playoffs and this past weekend either saw you in or out. For all my readers out there, I hope I provided information to help you land a spot in your playoffs. If so, and you were […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, Mitch is headed into the fantasy football therapist’s office this morning after taking three bad, brutal beats in Week 13. I am well below the RazzBowl 4 cutline after rolling into the playoffs at the top of the standings (Top 10). My #1 home league saw the bad beat occur when the Cowboys, seemingly […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m a big fan of the Motor City Kitties. Their 40+ year continuous tank job has set the stage for many a successful Vikings team. Throughout early 2022, the Lions have given fantasy managers so many gifts, and so many headaches. On Sunday, the Detroit Lions blew past the the 7-2 New York Giants, improving to 4-6 on the year and hunting down second place in the NFC North. How’d they do it? The way we all expected: 3 touchdowns from Jamaal Williams and Justin Jackson finishing as the leading rusher. Sigh. At least we’ve got Amon-Ra St. Brown cosplaying as Scrooge with his targets. Tis the season!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As our esteemed experts in Final Fantasy have pointed out, the Nightmare is a demonic colt that will flatten you with cloven hooves, a fiery mane, and gnashing teeth scarred from Halloween candy. A nightmare is also trying to figure out what to do with your fantasy football team now that Jonathan Taylor is out — AGAIN. Aw, Hufflepuff. The fantasy football season is halfway done, and you can barely call your usage of your top RB “fun-sized.”
Let’ s jump into the fray and see if there’s anything we can do to solve your injury and roster woes for the upcoming week!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week, the esteemed ex-girlfriend of the guy who convinced us that “Neon” is the hardest song to play on guitar released an album. People say it’s good. I wouldn’t know, what with my ears ruined by Norwegian black metal. But are you here to learn about a drone on a drop-tuned C string or are you here to learn about D’Andre Swift? Probably the latter. ENYWHEY. Just like Taylor Swift released an album this week, our good friend and fantasy football savior D’Andre Swift has been released from the injured list. Just in time for our 1-6 team to be saved! Hooray!
Now, let’s join and commiserate about how we lost Ja’Marr Chase.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What do you call it when a bunch of teams are on BYE, Christian McCaffrey is traded, and J.K. Dobbins is gonna miss half the year? I dunno. You’re gonna have to speak louder because the sounds of my sobbing are drowning you out.
Much like our esteemed Thursday Night Football writer Hobbs once wrote, “Fantasy football is nasty, brutish, and short.” Civilization is breaking down at the seams and we’re all in our natural state, foraging for running backs wherever we can find them.
Let’s jump in and see if we can avoid any pitfalls this week. Also, because I’m super nice, I’m going to toss in some quick take analysis on the more significant roster moves.Please, blog, may I have some more?
B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back with another classic episode. Classic, in that we go totally off the rails and talk about whatever we want, but also that it somehow is actually like 95% football related. We talk about the randomness of the year and how scoring is down, specifically among QBs. We discuss what […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Earlier in the pre-season, I talked about the importance of staggering your fantasy football beats, much like J Dilla took his programmed hip-hop beats and swung them into a new genre. Sure, it’s easy enough to say, “Draft good guys,” but it’s also important to have players who fill roles when the veterans disappear or the good guys go bad. It’s like The Avengers series — you need enough characters to carry the franchise so that when there’s a snap…you get the idea. For every Black Panther, we need an Ant Man to move the series forward. You just keep rolling with the B-squad until the third act, and then fantasy glory is at hand!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes I wonder why we even worry about injury reports. Take Thursday Night Football for example — two teams that were as healthy as could be. Even the miraculous “got shot 2 months ago and is already the starting RB Brian Robinson” was there. And what did we get for Amazon’s 11 billion dollar investment in TNF? The Commanders topping the Bears in the most baseball-like 12-7 game you could imagine. Bookies literally paid out the under at the start of the 4th quarter — they didn’t even wait for the end of the game. Carson Wentz with a field of healthy receivers against the freaking Chicago Bears couldn’t top 100 yards passing. Like, who cares about injuries if the freaking starters aren’t even playing. We all saw the Justin Fields meme of him literally meditating and checking out in the middle of the game.
Namaste, friends. Seek the center.
So let’s consider the power of change, and see what we can do for all of you who are missing essential players this week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
