DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 16

QB Drew Brees NO

The narrative for this week is that the following will occur: QB Drew Brees will pass for more than three touchdowns because that is what he needs for the overall record over former QB Peyton Manning. He passed for exactly four touchdowns and delivered the win.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 14

WR Allen Robinson CHI

Allen Robinson has been on fire the past three weeks, with touchdowns now in three consecutive games while averaging 10 targets per game during that span. This is the production we thought we’d be getting all year when drafting him this past summer and it’s better late than never.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 15

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

I was leading by eight points as late as 11:15 p.m. on Monday Night and tight end Zach Ertz caught a touchdown to send the game into overtimes. Then I was up by those same two points until tight end Zach Ertz caught the game-winning touchdown and went for 30 points on me. I lose on the last play of the game.

Richard_Sherman_Holding_Turkey_1

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone I know and don’t know. I will be giving thanks this year for what my family possesses. I wish your time with your family brings about a more Norman Rockwell moment with that turkey than a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation sequence of events with the same type of bird.

REAR-VIEW: Week 11 Recap

QB Mason Rudolph PIT

Mason Rudolph is starting to show his limitations as a passer against a Browns team that is finally healthy in the secondary. Rudolph threw for 4 interceptions and just one touchdown on an infamous night that he was hit with a helmet.

Star Wars Chewbacca Storm Trooper

Well, I talk about my week and whether Mexico is naughty or Mexico is nice (#EarlyChristmasReference). I also get my Li’L Yoda on … spoiler alert the Mandalorian is freaking Lannik awesome! So let’s get to it, shall we?

REAR-VIEW: Week 10 Recap

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

This whole game was backwards and we can wonder how much we can take away from the game. What is important is that even in a negative game script for passing, Matt Ryan threw 35 times for just 185 yards and two touchdowns.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 11

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_3

What I noticed about football is that if a team is doing well or if a team is doing poorly they seem to mention the same list of issues. The only difference is the record of the team. I guess that means during football season there is always something to talk about.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 9

Pumpkin_Head_Cleveland_Fan_1

Halloween is here and that means it is time for ghouls and ghosts and other costumes to take to the streets and haunt the early evening on Oct. 31. It is a trick and treat kind of week so I am going to mention all items coming into Week 9 that are treats. In this era of all things offense, there are plenty of treats to hand out.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 8

Frost on Pumpkins

So get out and enjoy. The winter always feels longer in the Northeast. Our summer may have been a precursor to the real bitter cold winds yet to arrive. This in-between time keeps pulling at you until the first frost on that pumpkin on my doorstep.

THE DIVE: Week 7 “Remember Who You Are”

Tight End Hunter Henry San Diego Chargers

Welcome back Hunter Henry! The Los Angeles Chargers tight end was one of the lone bright spots in a home loss against Pittsburgh. The Chargers offense should rebound in Week 6 when it visits Tennessee, who surrenders the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

TAKEAWAYS: Part 2

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

There is not much to say for the Jets’ passing situation as everything should reset once Sam Darnold is back this week. For those playing DFS this week, the Jets defense is criminally cheap and allows thousands of dollars in savings compared to others.

THE DIVE: Week 6 “Boom or Bust”

RB Matt Breida SF

Although Tevin Coleman returned and carried the ball 16 times, Matt Breida was a major focal point of the offense with 11 carries for 114 yards, three catches for 15 yards, and scored twice. Expect more Breida in Week 6 when San Francisco visits the Los Angeles Rams.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 6

WR Keenan Allen LAC

The NFL comes into Week 6 with all of these strange issues. Teams that should win do not. See the Kansas City Chiefs at home. See the Dallas Cowboys at home. Players that were number one in receiving yards are held back. See Keenan Allen.

THE DIVE: Week 5 “I Will Survive”

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Sure, you can argue that he’s shown inconsistency especially last season, but his last two weeks are impossible to ignore. If Jameis Winston is your backup quarterback or sitting on the waiver wire, he needs to be owned and started.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 5

RB Wayne Gallman NYG

Week 5 is a stepping off point for your fantasy football team. No matter what your record, realize that you must always go over and over the waiver wire. There will be a player acquired in the month of October who will propel your team forward; whether it is from an injury or just performance, be on the lookout.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 4

Fall Leaves in New England

It is the time of year people predict the foliage. It goes something like ...“Farmer’s Almanac says the rain over the Summer means beautiful colors”. Then you have those all convinced that wooly bears can predict our winter.

TEAM DEFENSE: Takeaways after Week 2

LB Kyle Van Noy NEP

The landscape for defensive rankings so far have proven to be a far cry from last year. Eventually, the expected teams such as Jacksonville and Philadelphia will progress towards their normal means instead of being below average as they have ...

THE DIVE: Hit the Ground Running – Week 1

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

With veteran quarterback Joe Flacco now running the offense, there should be more opportunity for second-year running back Phillip Lindsay. Although Denver’s offense never reached full steam last season, Lindsay was a rare bright spot with more than 1,000 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games.

PRESEASON RECAP: Week 3 Standouts, Slip-Ups, and Sleepers

RB Sony Michel NEP

If there is any knock on Sony Michel in this game, it’s that he failed to score from the 1-yard line, and fullback James Develin scored on the next play -- a familiar sight for anyone who rostered Michel last year. Develin will most likely continue to vulture some touchdowns in the regular season, but you shouldn’t let that turn you off from Michel.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Divisional Weekend

WR Keke Coutee HOU

First up are the surging Indianapolis Colts at the Kansas City Chiefs. I sense either brilliance from Patrick Mahomes or another scheme by the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts run-run-run and throw-throw-throw so I see the latter and another road victory this playoff season for the Colts.
