THE DIVE: Week 8 – “Thriller”

RB Boston Scott PHI

Although Boston Scott’s game in Week 7 was poised for disappointment, he heated up on Philadelphia’s final drive and scored the game-winning touchdown. Scott should thrive again when Philadelphia visits the downtrodden Dallas defense, who has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 8

QB Joe Burrow CIN

I decided to go big or go home last week. I was playing against Irv, who just so happens to be the manager who has won our fantasy football league each of the last two years. He is a very talented fantasy football player so I needed to pull a rabbit out of my hat.

Fall Leaves in New England

How much cider and apple pies and pumpkin patch picking can you prepare for? Well, not enough my friends. Everyone seems to be driving 40 miles per hour or less and they are bedazzled by the wonderful colors brought forth by Mother Nature. Foliage is Covid-19 friendly just like drive-ins! Who knew?

WR Cole Beasley BUF

We had a Tuesday Night Football game between the “So this is what a field looks like” Tennessee Titans and the “Hey our QB Josh Allen was taken after Sam Darnold in the same draft” Buffalo Bills that kept Tennessee with a perfect record.

QB Cam Newton New England Patriots

The shocker of the week was announced that QB Cam Newton of the Patriots tested positive for Covid-19 and the game was moved to a Monday Night game if there were no more positive tests. There were no more positive tests and the game was played Monday night.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

RB Rex Burkhead NE

What’s the best way to sum up the Week 3 action? Try this: Fewer injuries, but more questions. Is there clarity in the New England Patriots backfield? Is the New York Giants backfield a lost cause? Are there two on-the-rise ...

WR_Will_Fuller_V_HOU_1

A portmanteau is the creation of a word out of two words. Like smog is the combination of smoke and fog. My portmanteau is loffense. A combination of lacking with offense describes my season so far. I miss my offense and Will Fuller who went for 19 last week ended up with 0 points this week.

THE DIVE: Week 2 – “Sand Off the Rust”

RB Adrian Peterson, Detroit

Detroit’s backfield will have a shared workload, but Adrian Peterson appears to head this committee for now. He has an attractive matchup against Green Bay, who he is very familiar with - and who just allowed 128 total yards and two scores to Minnesota’s running backs.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
