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.

THE DIVE: Week 15 “Expect the Unexpected!”

CB Desmond Trufant ATL and WR Robert Woods LAR

Robert Woods has been targeted at least five times and gained at least 70 receiving yards in every game except Week 1. The Rams should return to offensive domination when they welcome Philadelphia, who have surrendered the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers, and was just recently torched by Amari Cooper.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 14

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

On the last week of our fantasy football season, RB Phillip Lindsay, RB James Conner, and QB Deshaun Watson went for a combined 70 points. Only Phillip Lindsay went for a 28 burger but that was enough. I have been winning by getting 90 points from my Top 3 players and coasting in.

THE DIVE: Week 12 “Monday Night Mayhem”

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

It can be difficult trusting a talented running back who is clearly splitting his workload, even on the prolific offense of the New Orleans Saints. Although Alvin Kamara may produce more points in your fantasy football league especially in PPR format, veteran back Mark Ingram has been extremely effective .

Steelers_Thanksgiving_2016_1

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  I consider it one of the greatest holidays because most people get Thursday and Friday off.  How cool is that? So enjoy your Turkey.  Enjoy your stuffing.  Devour that pumpkin pie.  Thanksgiving is a ...

THE DIVE: Week 11 “Leading The Pack”

WR Alshon Jeffery PHI & CB James Bradberry CAR

Even with the amount of wideouts in Philadelphia, Jeffery should break out of his brief slump when he visits the New Orleans secondary, who has surrendered the most fantasy points (including most receiving yards and touchdowns) to wide receivers.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 11

QB Patrick Mahomes Kansas City Chiefs

Week 11 has arrived.  We are nearing the home stretch and the Bye weeks are getting down to the final count.  Every week is important and sometimes your team cannot find the end zone.  Somehow it becomes critical to try ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 9

QB Tom Brady NE

The NFL has been pumping up this game in New England where Aaron Rodgers and company come to play. Fantasy stats of the week come from the Green Bay passing game as they shred the Patriots defense; there's just no way to sugarcoat it.

THE DIVE: Week 8 “Ram Tough”

Safety Maurice Alexander LA Rams

As we look ahead at Week 8, let’s rewind through several few Week 7 highlights.  Can the Los Angeles Rams be stopped…or even slowed down?  They won their 7th straight and continue as the NFL’s only undefeated team as they ...
