Because of the huge number of articles, this archive is divided into sections:

The problem with the Cardinals is that leadership is letting them down and I place the blame firmly on Ken Whisenhunt. He did this with Matt Leinart two years ago when he and Kurt Warner were sharing time which pushed Leinart's development back. He allowed the Anquan Boldin situation to get messy, Chris Wells is the superior runner yet Tim Hightower is in bouncing off the backs of his lineman and Kurt Warner looks like he can't throw the ball 20 yards..

We’d ask how they come up with this stuff, but we’re pretty sure it’s some combination of sleep deprivation, Red Bull, and electro-shock therapy.

Before you make any quick decisions to drop players and add others, you need to look at your team and evaluate all of the reasons they did not perform.

Two weeks in and already millions upon millions of managers are dissatisfied with their first-round running back selection. If you drafted Matt Forte, Steven Jackson, Brandon Jacobs or Steve Slaton you are probably already panicking. If you drafted Maurice Jones-Drew or Michael Turner you’re probably kicking yourself for not just drafting Drew Brees..

Welcome to the Week 2 Edition of “On the Rise, On the Fall.” In case you are not familiar with this column, I will list several players/teams whose stock is rising, as well as falling. For the most part, you will not find the obvious studs like Adrian Peterson or Larry Fitzgerald, unless they are listed as the Stud or Dud of the Week but you will find Leon Washington.

Prepare yourself but also use your head.  Some QB matchups to exploit this week are Jay Cutler against the Lions, Jason Campbell against the Bucs and Carson Palmer against the Browns.

Unless you’ve been living in a cave with a few wicks and a walking stick I guarantee you know the theme for Week 4; how fitting, right?  This week I’m placing extra emphasis on…. you guessed it…. Brett Favre.  But that's not all I'm talking about.  I'll also get in to a few other 4 headlines and give my 4 bold fantasy predictions for Week 4.  In case you haven't noticed 4 is definitely the magic number this week.

Oh boy, the guys have three fantastic contests all lined-up for you this week, including a battle of unbeatens, two perennial powerhouses, and a bitter Great Lakes area rivalry. But the fun doesn’t end there. They also toss a couple darts at Lindsey Lohan and one awful O-line, throw out the hottest stock tip of the week, steal candy from a baby, and spell out this week’s cant miss action… Scrabble-style.

Although the NFL season is just three weeks old, many frustrated fantasy owners are already slapping the bust label on running back Matt Forte. Is the Chicago Bears runner bogged down in a dreaded sophomore slump? In his latest edition of “In The Spotlight,” Matt Wilson answers the slump question and gives us his pessimistic take on Forte’s fantasy prospects for the rest of 2009.

Marshawn Lynch returns and Fred Jackson owners mumble an expletive under their breath. The Bills say they will split time between the two and the progno agrees, that's exactly how it will play out. If Marshawn Lynch struggles, and this offensive line may indeed be a better fit for Fred Jackson, there is a chance. The biggest obstacle is the business fact that the Bills have a lot invested in Marshawn Lynch. Two years ago he signed a 6-year, $19M deal. Fred Jackson signed a 4-year, $7M deal this past spring, which was a great deal for Jackson taking into account that he's 28. That's $3.2M a year for Lynch to Jackson's $1.75M. Jackson is being paid well too, by NFL standards, but Lynch at 23 is still considered the franchise back, Fred Jackson will ultimately be second fiddle but he will still be active in the offense and will make decent flex plays some weeks.

We look ahead to Week 4 for teams in deep leagues at players owned in 10 percent or less of standard leagues. If you listened to advice imploring you pick up Pierre Garc on, Tashard Choice and/or Malcolm Floyd, you’d be happy campers. If you picked up Malcolm Kelly? Then you’d be cursing the incomplete TD pass from Jason Campbell!

Three was the magic number last week. Matt Schaub and Jay Cutler threw for three touchdowns while Aaron Rodgers and Kevin Kolb also had three scores by way of two passing and one rushing. Maurice Jones-Drew joined the party with three scores himself. While Peyton Manning may have started the party a week early with his four TD passes, don't expect as many scores this week. The bye weeks have begun and the Studs lists have been adjusted.
