Riser and Fallers: Week 13

Good luck in what is most likely your deciding week before the playoffs. There are several players whose Week 13 performances will impact how we use them during championship time. GI Joe said, “Knowing is half the battle.” I guess Joe didn’t play fantasy football because knowing is the entire war.

The Prognosticator – Week 13

It's really anyone's game but the scales tip the Vikings way a hair due to their run stop D being better, the fact that Christian Ponder can actually throw a football from the quarterback position, unlike the Broncos, and the Vikings have those nutty Viking horns cheering them on in front of their own crowd. But even with all that said, and the advantages the Vikings will enjoy, the Vikings are playing against Tim Tebow, the most magical mythical creature on this planet and when you're playing against unicorns and fairy dust, anything can happen.

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. With most leagues having closed up the waiver wire, we’ll go with a bit of a different format this week that will be more like a round table discussion by position.

Week 12: Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to Week 12 of the Brew Crew Corner. It's going to be a crazy week for fantasy owners. One thing to be thankful for is the return of Andre Johnson. I could have used him the last few weeks and with all the players going on IR, it helps to get back a player of his caliber. I know we all have parades, families, Black Fridays and holiday decorating to get done so let’s dive right in!

Start/Bench: Week 12

The bye weeks are done, but so are several players due to injury. If you're still alive at this stage of the fantasy season, it's no time to take your foot off the gas. While some players may struggle in attempting to fill the shoes of an injured starter, others will be up for the task. Choose wisely my friends, as mistakes at this stage of the season could cost you dearly.

The Feeding Frenzy

In the last couple of weeks, two teams with Super Bowl hopes – Houston and Chicago – have lost their starting quarterbacks. Throw in Adrian Peterson going down with an ankle injury and fantasy owners are starting to get their usual late-season headaches. Luckily, even though we’re entering Week 12, the waiver wire always offers some hope. Let’s take a look at this week’s hot waiver wire targets and whether or not those players are worth pursuing.

IDP Waiver Wire: Week 12

There’s much to be thankful for as we enter the twelfth week of the fantasy football season. The bye weeks are behind us, the playoffs lie just ahead, and for once we’ll get a couple of games on Turkey Day (Packers-Lions and 49ers-Ravens) that are less likely to give us heartburn than Aunt Claire’s oyster stuffing. (Seriously, who the hell puts oysters in stuffing?) That said here are some players that should be available on many IDP waiver wires that are worth targeting as we head into Week 12.

The Prognosticator – Week 11

Favre burned bridges when he put on a Viking uniform and for as loved as Brett Favre was in Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers has left him in the rear view. Barring a sex tape or video of Aaron Rodgers knocking down an old lady with a bottle of Jack in his left and a Marlboro in his right, Aaron Rodgers cult status and star power luminosity may end up being one of the brightest ever. I for one am going to enjoy this ride living in this Rodgers era. Some may say I may be in a rush to canonize Rodgers and that is true, it is early, but what I've seen to date gives me great hope.

Take a dive with me as I will help guide you to a much needed victory.

Survivor Pool Analysis – Week 11

The Philadelphia Eagles have been a huge disappointment in 2011 and they continued that trend through Week 10. A terrible loss at home to Arizona likely ended the hopes for some. The Green Bay Packers were able to come through if you still had them available, as well as my other two picks in the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans. It is the last week of byes, so check out the Week 11 full game-by-game analysis as we near the home stretch.

Waiver Wire Wonders

We're back to our regular format this week as we tier up the potential waiver wire candidates for this week. A slight deviation as we dump the lowest category and introduce a "Quarterback Discussion" section since so many went down this week. This week's column was written while wondering what the point spread might be if Green Bay played against Indianapolis. I'm thinking in the 30 range, and even then, would anyone touch the Colts?
