There was some stat floating around the internet that caught my eye, much like that YouTube video that explains in excruciating detail the sharpest tuna-cutting knife on David Attenborough’s Planet Earth. Now that I’ve lost you in 8 sub-clauses and some exciting tuna talk, I’ll reveal the stat: The Detroit Lions — yes, the Motor City Kitties — were the top-scoring team in the league and had only one win to show for it. Your fantasy teams squealed in delight as Jared Goff and Jamaal Williams — your pre-season all-stars, right? — racked up points and millions of bucks for DFS teams. This week, the Lions faced the Patriots, helmed by the esteemed backup to the backup Bailey Zappe. Shoulda been a slam dunk, right? Well, 161 ground yards by Rhamondre Stevenson later, the Lions got shut out, and Zappe got his first career win, a mere week after nearly felling the great ayahuasca plant that is Aaron Rodgers.

Bold predictions can be far-reaching and highly unlikely. However, I tend to lean on the 30% likelihood these scenarios could actually happen. They seem bold now, but every season we witness situations and players that outperformed (or underperform) their expectations and sometimes by a wide margin. I wouldn’t run to Vegas and place bets on […]

Air Yards are the Gordon Ramsey of fantasy receiving stats. They tell us exactly what was right and clearly what was wrong with how a receiver performed in a given week. Often, it’s not easy to hear. But you as a fantasy manager need to pay attention to the under-the-hood numbers from your receivers instead of just blindly trusting the box score results, you donkey. 

Each week, this column will dissect air yards for actionable info in the weeks to come. For Week 13, we will do a quick analysis of the list of the 65 wide receivers who finished last week with at least 30 air yards.

The story leading into this game was Green Bay being without their top wide receivers in Davante Adams and Allen Lazard who are both on the reserve/Covid list. The narrative was that there would be no way they could beat the undefeated Arizona Cardinals without their weapons. The moral of the story ended up being never count out Aaron Rodgers. Even without his best receiving weapons, Rodgers was able to battle the whole game, make the plays when he needed to, and pull out the upset victory for the Packers.

How did the Bye-mageddon go for everybody? Or was it more of a Bye-pocalypse? Did you support the Bye-din Administration? Or did you get a bit Bye-curious and start changing up your roster? Maybe you finally addressed that Bye-polar condition you have. ENYWHEY (I ran out of Bye-related jokes). The average fantasy footballer (Hi Grey’s mom!) is nearing the playoff stretch already. How weird is that? Didn’t we just start the season? Some of those big leagues have playoffs starting in week 12. And as we all know, the most important league in the world — the RazzBowl — has that week 9 cutline. Lemme check if I’m going to pass go and collect $200…hmmm, gonna be close. My risky strategy to draft the 49ers stack (Kittle, Samuel, Aiyuk, and Lance) did not pay off. So my RazzBowl effort may be closing here soon, but I’ve got a bit of good news after the jump! Join me to celebrate!

October is upon us and thus the gates of all things spooky have opened. Although no living room werewolf transformation or demon spawned baby can match the terrors on the field this past week. No, I am not talking of the awkward non-hug between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick at the end of Sunday night’s dark and stormy game. I am speaking of the gruesome injuries, quarterback play which may require an old priest and a new priest to fix, and once thought done players seemingly rising from the dead. Things are getting downright strange in the fantasy football neighborhood, so who we gonna call? Waiver Wire!

Another new day is upon us, folks. Another beautiful weekend of NFL football, another week of eating chicken wings and slamming brews while enjoying a real sport instead of some European nonsense like smelling gross cheese and discussing feelings. Or whatever those degenerates do over there. Could we be more blessed? Well, yeah. Your players could be healthy and your teams could be playing well but instead, here we are! 

 So let’s get into the latest injury news and updates for Week 4!
