I suffer from an undying obsession with fantasy football. Former Lee Evans owner, I am not proud. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, I would get to the second one but I have lineups to set. Follow me on Twitter @leedoglaw

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 16

QB_Joe_Flacco_BAL_1

Flacco is the quarterback I feel most comfortable starting out of the bunch because I expect a grinder floor. He put up solid numbers against the Browns and gets Indy this week. You could do worse if you are in a pinch.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 15

WR_Brandon_LaFell_CIN_1

LaFell has been a low end PPR grinder all year on a Bengals team that has been almost uniformly disappointing fantasy owners. Guess what Bengals receiver is not lining up against Xavier Rhodes this week?

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 14

LB_Ryan_Shazier_RB_Gio_Bernard_NFL_1

“Grinders and Gambles” is duct tape for teams in need of help. This list is for deeper leagues or for those in shallower leagues who are picking up players in free agency after waivers have run. Grinders are the guys who ...

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 13

TE Ricky Seals-Jones ARI

Chemistry matters. Ricky Seals-Jones is Blaine Gabbert’s wubby right now and that matters. If this continues, Seals-Jones could be a huge difference maker on your roster as well as the Cardinals roster. Gamble.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 12

QB_Tyrod_Taylor_BUF_2

I have no idea why the Bills thought…”hey we are in playoff contention, let’s bench our quarterback and start a rookie!” but the rest of the AFC East and the Chargers are grateful.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 11

WR_Brandon_LaFell_CIN_1

LaFell is going to give low end PPR grinder numbers week-to-week on a Bengals team that has seen its share of issues this year. Green is the undisputed top target here by a mile. With that said, LaFell may work in a pinch or if you just need to put a few points on the board.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 9

TE_Charles_Clay_BUF_2

Charles Clay is more likely to be on your wire than Olsen. Unfortunately his timetable is unknown. He is still on the mend and Kelvin Benjamin is now in town. Clay is worth a stash and gamble if you have room since he has a good schedule for the final stretch

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 8

WR Kenny Stills MIA

Kenny Stills has been getting more targets in the last few weeks and had a nice game against the Jets. What lesson have we learned from reading this article? The Dolphins exist to crush my hopes and dreams.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 7

QB Mitchell Trubisky CHI

Grinders and Gambles is duct tape for deeper leagues where the vultures have already thinned your wire down to the last pickings. Either your league deep or your waivers have run and you still have holes. Grinders are the guys ...

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 6

RB_Shane_Vereen_NYG_1

Grinders and Gambles is waiver wire duct tape for deeper leagues where the waiver wires are thinner. Grinders are the guys that will get you some points. They may not have an upside but they will grind out 5-15 depending on your scoring. Gambles can get you a goose egg but also have tremendous upside.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 5

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

Jared Goff’s floor is a grinder right now and his upside is a Top 10 quarterback. He has some nasty match ups so he isn’t going to help as much with the bye week blues but he will make a great match up play.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 4

QB Jay Cutler MIA

That’s the Cutler we all know and love. As we all know, Miami exists to crush my hopes and dreams. We lost to the New York Jets …TO THE JETS! Sorry, where was I? Right, Cutler was Cutlering all over the place but he has New Orleans coming up. Every meme about the New Orleans defense is just a picture of a turnstile.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 3

QB_Trevor_Siemian_DEN_1

I am back!! I have power, I have cable, I watched football this Sunday (which is significantly better than week 1 which involved me doing a jigsaw puzzle by storm lamp light eating canned tuna). Grinders and Gambles is waiver ...

LATE ROUND: Fliers

WR_Chris_Hogan_NEP_1

It is time, my friends! Print out those cheat sheets, depth charts and draft guides, it is the peak of fantasy draft season! Maybe you have meticulously planned your draft, ran some mocks and have a strategy? Maybe you are ...

LATER ROUND FLIERS: Running Back

RB_Theo_Riddick_DET_1

If you are in a PPR league you should be looking to target Riddick. Riddick's value seems to be leaving him available in rounds 8-10 in drafts so far. The guy just quietly grinds points for his owners every year (mostly coming from passing yards).

LATE ROUND FILLERS: Quarterback

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

Matthew Stafford was a Top 10 quarterback last season and has been flying under the radar in drafts. You can grab him in rounds 10-12. He is experienced, has a nice schedule and has veteran receivers and is my favorite grab at his current price.
