Each week we’ll take a look at the top trade targets for each position. Trade targets can be any player at any time throughout the season. The objective (when possible) is to “buy low” and “sell high,” acquiring and getting rid of players as they are hitting their peak or before they lose their value. […]

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.

It was yet another head-scratching week in the NFL – wait the Giants and Jets are actually good, and maybe even the Seahawks? – headlined by some highlight-reel performances from big-time receiving options. Let’s take a look at this week’s target leaders…  Who needs Jonathan Taylor?  The Matt Ryan-led Colts’ offense has been sputtering throughout […]

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when they sigh deeply and think to themselves, Man, I’m sure not good at football, but I wouldn’t have thrown that pass directly into a defensive lineman’s forehead. For a lot of us, that moment came to fruition last night. With an open Cole Kmet in the front of the end zone, Justin Fields rifled a throw right into the dome of Efe Obada, causing the ball to skyrocket into the air and come down into the hands of Jonathan Allen for an interception. That proved to be Fields’ lone turnover of the night, but that miscue coupled with Velus Jones’ muffed punt in the fourth quarter was ultimately Chicago’s downfall. And once again, we find ourselves wondering if the NFL’s Thursday Night Football could possibly get any harder to watch, and I find myself debating what I did to Donkey Teeth to deserve being stuck with writing about this travesty week after week. But complaining is for the weak, so onward we trudge into the abysmal abyss!

Welcome back to my new series for this season: “Quarterback Changes – Helpful or Hurtful?”. I’ll be breaking down one quarterback per conference this week and next to determine whether their addition to their new teams is helpful or hurtful and what their impact will be in their new homes. Check out last week’s quarterback […]

NFL. AFC. NFC. PAT. RPO. ADP. ECR. Fantasy football is filled with acronyms. And never forget RGS, Roger Goodell Smells. Two of the most common in the fantasy realm are ADP and ECR, which have become compnents of the everyday vocabulary for even the most casual players: Average Draft Position and Expert Consensus Ranking. Now, the ‘perts in this field do phenominal work. They’re never been better, but they’re still human (or donkeys). They get things wrong, just like I do. Sometimes when you look at the ECR hodgepodge, the end product is lacking common sense like a multimillionaire NFL player accepting a dare to soil a fire hydrant in public for five bucks. But today, we’ll stick to coins instead of bills, as I’ll provide my two “cents” on 15 players whose current ECR I disagree with. Sticking to the surface, I’ll make my case using relatively basic arguments and pointing out some common sense disagreements I have with the ECR breakdown.
