Fantasy Football Championship Week Dos and Don’ts

by

It is finally here for some of you, your fantasy football championship week. Fourteen weeks and endless hours of draft preparation have brought you to this point. Unfortunately with big games comes big pressure, and the wrong decision can result in an early exit and an offseason of depression.

Don’t over-analyze - There is a reason you have gotten this far in the fantasy football playoffs. Stick with what got you here. The most common mistake for first-time championship players is to over-think your game. For example, you own Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks are playing the Arizona Cardinals this week. You start Lynch no matter what. Especially this season as no defense has been consistent for fifteen games.

The worst words you want to hear before you play your running back are Cardinals. Yes, the Cardinals have shutdown the run for most of the season and are first ..click here to read more , , , , , , ,

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 9

by

It is win-or go-home for some of you frustrated fantasy football players as we are just weeks away from the playoffs. The waiver wire isn’t nearly as juicy as it was last week but there are still a few gambles and subs that are worth a look.

Running Backs

Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals – Ellington has flown under the radar for several reasons, most notably being the team he plays for. Savvy players either picked him up weeks ago or even drafted him with a late pick. Ellington had a big game against the Falcons on Sunday and should continue with big production in the weeks ahead. Ellington is on a bye week so you won’t see any immediate dividends.

Quarterbacks

Jason Campbell, Cleveland Browns – Get him while he is still playing. The over/under on Campbell getting hurt is probably about 2 games so I would be careful who you drop to get ..click here to read more

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 8

by

It is crunch time and if you are struggling, this could be your make it or break it week in fantasy football. Bye weeks aren’t going to help but lucky for you there are actually some decent plug-ins you can pick up on the waiver wire due to some unfortunate injuries, especially at running back.

Quarterbacks

Jake Locker, Tennessee Titans - I know Locker has a bye week so you can’t use him if you need immediate help. But he lit up the 49ers on Sunday and he has some phenomenal matchups on the agenda when he returns from the bye. He’ll have the Rams and the Jaguars and who wouldn’t want a QB that gets them both at this point in the season? If you are struggling at QB and can wait a week, Locker is worth the early investment.

Case Keenum, Houston Texans - Keenum came in for the injured Matt ..click here to read more

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 7

by

This week’s fantasy football waiver wire may be one of the most critical of all for you. If you are struggling with a weak bench, you have no choice but to look to the wire for help. Unfortunately you probably won’t find any sure-things this week.

Quarterbacks

There are no pickups I could recommend with confidence. Josh Freeman is out there but you’d have to be crazy to put him in your lineup at this point.

Wide Receivers

Jarrett Boykin, Green Bay Packers - Boykin may wind up seeing a lot of balls thrown his way by default. Randall Cobb and James Jones both left Sunday’s game with injuries. Their exits left Boykin and Jordy Nelson as the only receiving options. I like those options. Teams will likely start giving Nelson a lot of attention opening up some big opportunities for Boykin. I am real intrigued moving forward.

Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers - Hear ..click here to read more

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 6

by

We are already reaching the halfway point for some of you in the fantasy football regular season. It is either time to panic or boost your bench for the stretch run. While there aren’t any diamonds in the ruff on the waiver wire this week, there are a few guys that you may be able to plug and play during your bye weeks to sustain your momentum or turn it around.

Quarterbacks

Chad Henne, Jacksonville Jaguars - Henne will be taking over duties for Blaine Gabbert and that is good news for fantasy owners looking for a bye week QB. Henne has a brutal matchup against the Denver Broncos this week which in terms of fantasy is good news for garbage time. At some point this game will be out of hand and the Jags will rack up some garbage points

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 5

by

Week 5 on the fantasy football waiver wire isn’t what I’d call exciting. You have a couple of usual suspects when it comes to the waiver wire but you never know. A roll of the dice on some of these names could pay off in big dividends if you are looking for bye week relief.

Quarterbacks

Matt Cassel, Minnesota Vikings – Like Nate Washington I feel like I bit by Cassel fairly often. The potential has always been there but how often does he really stay on my team? Maybe it was the system in Kansas City because he looked great against Pittsburgh on Sunday. The Vikings have a bye week and while the team says Ponder will get his job back, I’ll believe it when I see it.

Wide Receivers

Nate Washington, Tennessee Titans – I have always liked Washington and I don’t think a season has passed in the last several years ..click here to read more

2013 Fantasy Football Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

by

Week four presents some interesting options on the waiver wire. Once again we have another week where the best upside comes at quarterback. The bye weeks are underway so if you need a little help this week’s wire could provide some relief.

It is only week 4 and while you don’t want to panic you also don’t want to sit back and let options slip through your fingers. There is nothing wrong with tinkering a little on the wire. Now is the time when you can start playing the matchups and look at the wire to take advantage of bad defenses and inept offenses. Look no further than this week to take full advantage of those opportunities.

Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins - I wasn’t a big Tannehill fan going into the season but he is quietly putting up nice numbers. Let’s face it. When you have a playmaker like Mike Wallace on ..click here to read more

2013 Fantasy Football Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

by

Week two on the fantasy football waiver wire presents some intriguing options. Wide receivers continue to dominate the fantasy points and there are a couple of interesting possibilities out there as well as a couple of familiar names at QB.

Quarterbacks

Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs – Smith is a really funny fantasy QB. No matter how well Smith plays, fantasy owners refuse to touch him. It generally takes about 5-6 weeks of consistent play for anyone to bite. Here is the deal. Smith is a very good fantasy QB playing for a head coach that loves, did I say loves, to throw the ball. He has thrown two TDs in each of his last two games and he is playing an Eagles team that have given up five TDs in two games. Smith could be a brilliant add and play this week if you are struggling at QB.

2013 Fantasy Football Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

by

The Fantasy Football 2013 season started off with a lot of scoring from tight ends and wide receivers. Quite a few of those scoring players remain undrafted free agents available for you savvy players on this week’s waiver wire.

Week 1 was full of surprises. One huge surprise in my opinion was the lack of production from running backs. There were only a handful of 100 yard rushers although you had TDs from plenty. There also aren’t a lot of opportunities for backs on the wire unless you want to cute and that’s not my style. The biggest surprise to me was the production from tight ends. Is it a sign of the times or a coincidence on week 1? Time will tell but you don’t have much time to get these guys on your bench.

A piece of advice I always offer friends during the first few weeks is to not ..click here to read more ,

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 14 Pickups

by

The Fantasy Football 2012 playoffs are here. Unless you are playing with the perfect lineup, you could always use a little help on the waiver wire. Even dynasty players looking on the outside could get a jump start and pick up some intriguing options for next year on this week’s wire.

Now let’s get one thing real clear. I wouldn’t start half of these guys in my playoff matchups. However, there are some really nice options here for dynasty players that can start looking ahead to next year. Additionally there are some intriguing options that while they may not be needed on your team, you may want to consider grabbing them just to keep them away from your post season opponents.

Quarterbacks

Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns - Look I am not going to tell you to grab Weeden and start him over your starting QB that may have gotten you to the playoffs. ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 13 Pickups

by

Fantasy Football week 13 presents some interesting pickups on the waiver wire. Injuries and a hot hand heat up the wire this week with a handful of players that could actually make a big difference to your lineup if you need to fill some holes en route to the championship.

Quarterbacks

Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks – Pete Carroll has quietly opened up the offense for Wilson who has put up great numbers four weeks in a row. Wilson doesn’t throw for a lot of yards but he throws for TDs. Wilson has a mixed bag of matchups down the stretch including an intriguing game against the Chicago Bears this week. He then has the Arizona Cardinals, the Buffalo Bills, a 49ers team that you’d want to avoid, and a fantastic matchup in the final week against the Rams. If you are struggling at QB, Wilson could be the answer to your problems.

Fantasy Football Week 12 Sleepers and Busts

by

It is easy to start your fantasy football studs but what about the sleepers? The sleepers are where you can pull off the upset and here are a few you can start with confidence this week to help seal your playoff hopes.

The easiest thing for me to do is to write a start/sit blog and drop the obvious names. But what good is that to you? You already know you need to play your studs. But unless you are incredibly lucky this season, your lineup isn’t perfect. You need to fill in some holes and whether you go to your bench or your waiver wire, that player could make or break your playoff aspirations in week 12. That is why I did the dirty work and went through the player histories, the stats, the injuries, and the trends to find you sleepers at every position for this critical week.
