Start/Sit

Whoa, this week really sneaked up on us, didn’t it? I know you are all here for start/sit advice but I’m wondering if you have a Thanksgiving conundrum similar to mine.

Yet it’s critical to keep a sense of perspective so that your fantasy team doesn’t prematurely fall of the rails. No, you should not bench Arian Foster because he finished with less than 100 all-...

One stellar element of fantasy football versus the real thing is that when you start 0-2, you have a greater than 8.8% shot at the postseason. No matter your record, it is interesting to comtemplate the notion of trading your first round running back for an extra first round pick next season. Would you make that deal? I bet just about every Tre...
