Rash of Injuries Cloud 2017 Fantasy Football Season

Crap. NFL training camps are barely open and already there has been a number of significant injuries that will impact upcoming fantasy drafts.  The most significant, and surprising, this week was word that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has a “disc issue” with his back and could be out 3 to 6 weeks . . . or longer. Look, I’m not doctor, but that does not sound good and it…

Is There a Sure Thing in Fantasy Football Anymore?

December 7, 2015

Just when you think you’ve got something figured out (like life) you quickly realize that you don’t. That brief moment of clarity can quickly be replaced by even more confusion because you THOUGHT the mystery was solved. Such, I believe, is the nature of fantasy football for 2015 . . . and maybe beyond. Nothing, it seems, is an iron bet anymore. Let’s start with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning….

March 11, 2015

Look, I never claimed to know every player on every team in the NFL. Not like some of the know-it-alls that I play fantasy football with. But I knew enough of the big names players, their teams, and the impact they had on those teams to draft and play competitively. Until yesterday. When the NFL went completely nuts and started trading players like they were on sale. Okay, well maybe…

Video: What the NFL Didn’t Want You to See – Doug Baldwin End Zone “Crapping on the Ball” TD Celebration

February 3, 2015

Doug Baldwin of the Seattle Seahawks caught a touchdown pass during the Super Bowl on Sunday, something not many people can claim to have done. And yet, when it came time to celebrate this momentous occasion, Baldwin chose to throw the ball to the ground, walk over to it, pretend to pull his pants down and poop either out or on the football. That’s right, a grown man–allegedly a professional…

Source: Browns Forced Manzeil Into Rehab

February 3, 2015

The reaction to the word that Johnny Manzeil, aka “Johnny Football”, was entering rehab with a mixture of reactions yesterday. Some, like us, chose the humor route and had a little fun with the occasionally arrogant former Texas A&M quarterback, while others stood up for him and praised his courage to “getting the help he needed to turn his life around.” But what if Manzeil didn’t voluntarily go into rehab…

Never heard of Landon Cohen? Most people hadn’t . . . until this week. Here’s more on the story from Yahoo Sports: As most fantasies go, Cohen’s January has been the definition of awesome. Four weeks ago, he and two lifelong friends were running their valet service in Spartanburg, S.C. One workout and a few phone calls later, the journeyman defensive tackle landed with the Seattle Seahawks, despite not having…

Numberfire: How Often Are Successful Quarterbacks Drafted After the First Round?

January 27, 2015

Good question. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the answer from our friends at NumberFire.com. Here’s an excerpt from their latest article: Tom Brady and Russell Wilson are part of a dying breed. That breed, surprisingly, is not quarterbacks with immaculate hair. Rather, it’s quarterbacks drafted after the first round who find success in the NFL. Last year, we did a study of how important it was to draft a quarterback in…

Video: Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’ Reacts to Bill Belichick’s Scandal 2015

January 25, 2015

If you believe Wikipedia (and who, under 20 doesn’t?) Patriots coach Bill “I Am Not a Crook” Belichick has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Wesleyan University he earned back in 1975. So, as some us determined from his press conference this week where he tried to explain “the science” Coach B does not have a degree in one of the applied science. Or even a minor. Probably took some science…
