Fantasy

The first Waiver Wire of the season is in many ways the most critical, and difficult. Unlike subsequent weeks, when favorite targets and injury replacements are rather evident, this week is mostly reserved for correctly nabbing players poised to be contri...

Two weeks in and many fantasy owners are in panic mode.  Especially if you spent a first or second round pick on Ray Rice, Frank Gore, DeMarco Murray or David Wilson.  Unfortunately you’re in a bit of...

Now fantasy really gets fun.  Some guys were hot the first two weeks and disappeared during Week 3 (hello Eddie Royal). Others are talents of yesteryear, who have yet to get going (hello Frank Gore). Throw in the start of bye weeks and fielding the best ...

We’re turning the corner on the quarter-mark of the season which means bye weeks are in full effect. Four teams – the Bucs, Vikings, Steelers, and Redskins – are taking a much need breather this week. The good news for owners is that only Adrian Pet...

Every time I begin writing this waiver column or our I am somehow reminded of all those lame commissioners who neglect to send regular trash-talk inducing updates to their league, or any updates at all.  I’m reminded because I’m one of them, a loser...

Bye weeks, the bane of fantasy existence, are a thing of the past. What remains is a no holds barred Week 13 that will put many fantasy teams in the same spot as the Atlanta Falcons –the grave. In other words, eliminated. Of course I’m here to try and...
