Fantasy 411 – Week 13

At some point in the next several weeks we will play a disturbing game in our house that has become an annual tradition. When our refrigerator is so full it will barely close we will hesitantly pull Thanksgiving leftovers out item-by-item and discard them after challenging one another in 10-or-more rounds of “What did it used to be?” Here are the fantasy football leftovers that you would be well advised to discard now, before they give you an upset stomach with a costly, nauseating performance.

No position offers more quality fantasy options than wide receiver. That’s not only because of the sheer volume of players at the position but also due to the fact that so many guys seem to emerge as the year goes on.

Player Prop Bets – Week 12

The Jets are now one loss away from satisfying their season prop bet after Thursday nights debacle and Greg Olsen should satisfy his yardage requirements with a catch or two on Monday night.  Green-Ellis is still on pace to reach 850 yards rushing and the Rob Gronkowski injury injects new life into his battle with Jimmy Graham and their receiving yard targets. I take a look inside the actual games to give you a reason to root for, or against, some individual players.

The Prognosticator – Week 12

What a steel on steel game this will be and the entire contest hinges on really just one aspect, the Giants ability to get to the quarterback. The Packers have not performed well protecting Aaron Rodgers this year and if I were the Packers, that is priority one for me this off-season but this Sunday, it is a real cause for concern.

The Time is Now for Colin Kaepernick

The Bears did not have Jay Cutler nor did they have much game film on Colin Kaepernick leading into Monday Night's tilt, but even if they did they still would have been swept off the field by the 49ers in primetime. Their best bet at hoisting the Lombardi trophy come season's end is on the shoulders of the green sophomore signal caller, but he is not even guaranteed to start this week in New Orleans.
