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

For every negative there is a positive. The age old question ” do you want the good news or the bad news? ” Is alive and kicking, especially when it comes to crucial fantasy decisions. Yes I got plenty of heat for telling all of you to go against Cam Newton last week. I honestly thought this Atlanta Falcons team was actually good enough, but instead Newton slammed them, and there in made me look quite awful.
However, I was also the guy getting the big thumbs up for telling all of you to bench Eagles RB Bryce Brown. Brown was man-handled by the Bucs excellent run defense. Sure, I always want to be perfect, but even perfect takes a day off, I mean we all need a day off, right?
As for me and my personal work I managed to get all 4 of my teams into the playoffs. 1 big ..click here to read more

Welcome to Fantasy Football Week 12 all of you turkey eaters, and holiday celebrating people. Yes, we come to you a little later than usual this week, so you missed me telling you to start the Patriots defense, and Matt Stafford etc. Okay, that didn’t really happen, I took an extra day off to celebrate some holiday and be thankful for what I have and those around me. I also took the day to be thankful for some good and bad in Fantasy Football this year.
After last week, with my terrible 1-3 performance, I needed to be thankful for still having good teams and high point totals and still be in the playoff mix in every league. It has been a tough year, as usual predicting who would be hot or not has been as easy as finding a needle in a haystack. Yet I forge ahead, still bring you ..click here to read more

Welcome to week 7 of the NFL season, or as we like to say in fantasy land, pure hell! Yes, for some unknown reason, or perhaps for one big joke, the NFL has decided to play with our minds and put a whopping 6 teams on a bye.
Remember the good ol’ days, when each week would have 4 teams on a bye, and they were spread out nice and even, you struggled through 2 tough weeks and went back to business? Those are gone, and somehow the NFL came up with some 2,4,4,6 and so on bye week plan. Now I know the argument is “we all have bye weeks”, but we all know some teams have 4 guys off at once, it happens and it’s rough. The waiver wire is as thin as a nice cut of salami at a good Italian deli.
Yes, let’s go with that theory, a ..click here to read more

Well, some things just happen to Fantasy owners and there is not much anyone can do about it. How many of you got burned by Brandon Marshall’s meaningless TD Monday night that Dallas clearly quit on? (Me? No it sealed a win for me!) How many of you watched sadly as Tony Romo became an owners worst nightmare, or watched Dez Bryant give it the ol’ “who cares” try all night long? Well owners, we live and we learn, and we have the right to bench players accordingly, believe me Romo has already been benched and there will be more of that if I stay unhappy!
So after a 2-2 week for me in my leagues I now stand at 10-6 for the season. If this was the NFL I would probably have a playoff birth right? Well even though it ..click here to read more

Well, what comes around usually goes around. Just ask Reggie Bush as he will tell you about Darrelle Revis and his knee injury or you can ask The Shark about the ups and downs of Fantasy Football. The game that lives and breathes on being only as good as your last week has begun its downward spiral on me. Yes, injuries and poor performances have turned me from a 7-1 giant in 4 leagues, down to a 8-4 regular guy. Genius no more? Nah, I’ll be back, and luckily for all of you will continue to give you my top notch advice.
So the injury bug was striking many players last week, but these are the things we have to overcome. You get your shot at free agents, get a bench. and sometimes you just have to ..click here to read more

The 2012 Fantasy Football season is just days away and many of you are finishing up your drafts. As most of you know the key to a great season is locking in on those sleepers and avoiding the busts. Here are just a few players to target and avoid in your upcoming draft.
I am a certified fantasy football nut. I start my research for next season a year before by honing in on college prospects, NFL coaching and personnel changes, and watching players and teams evolve throughout the season. Unfortunately in this era of fantasy football, that is the only real way to give yourself an advantage over your opponents. Or you could just let fantasy bloggers and writers like me do the research and bring our information into your process.
Before I get into the meat of the blog, you ..click here to read more

Welcome back friends and family and advice seekers, another season of Fantasy Football is upon us. The last hot days of August are where we are torn between trips to the shore and watching preseason games and doing football homework. We stop at the store not only just for milk and bread, but also for that magazine full of player stats and information that will help put us over the top this year. Last year is far behind, the past is the past, and it is redemption time!
I am proud to be back here again this season at CamelClutchBlog.com as a fantasy writer, bringing my savvy and smarts to all of our followers. I play this game like it is my life sometimes, and I have good results and some trophies and rewards to show for ..click here to read more

Well, it seems like only a day or so ago that the New York Giants finished their miracle run and won the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots. The NFL off-season moves really fast though, and it is time for owners and GMs to get ready for Free Agency in a few short days, and the NFL Draft in late April.
After last season’s delay with the lockout, some teams failed to lock up some of their big time players, which makes this a pretty good bunch of talent that can be had this season. Yes free agency is filled with tons of names, and today I will be showing you some of the top names and what fate may await them on the market.
Let’s face it, from 32-1 every team in the league could use better talent at certain ..click here to read more

Defense wins Championships is not only true for the NFL, but also for Fantasy Football. I hear all these experts say that whatever defense you play does not matter well I beg to differ. I believe that playing a good defense is another great way to get extra points.
A good Defense with a good Special Teams is great to have on your Fantasy team. The perks to having a good all around Defenses are extra points with return yards, defensive touch downs/special teams touch downs, interceptions, sacks and fumbles.
I feel the best defenses to play this week are the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers. The Texans play the Colts Thursday night. The Texans are the second best defensive team against the run in Fantasy Football, so don’t expect Donald Brown to have the kind ..click here to read more

“Hey Jeff, I was thinking hard about taking Jamaal Charles this year, what do you think?”
“Oh I love Charles, and he does lots of good things, but I would take LeSean McCoy before him. I’d also grab Arian Foster, Ray Rice, heck even Aaron Rodgers before Charles, it just feels scary to me” It all seems so easy to say after the thought, but this was some advice I gave to some good friends of mine before the season started. Why go back to it now? Well, we can’t always be right, but heck I like to think I try my best. So even though I fell victim to Charles in one of my leagues, my advice to take Foster worked for me in another. It is the beautiful guessing game we play from August until December known as Fantasy ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 13 in the National Football League!
- R.I.P. to the Dream Team and farewell to Andy Reid & DeSean Jackson from Philadelphia. It’s time for a change of scenery for Philadelphia when it comes to their head coaching position and Andy Reid will easily find a job pretty quickly next season once this marriage comes to an end. As for DeSean Jackson the Eagles will be better without this prima donna of a player who hasn’t really completed ANYTHING.
- Marshawn Lynch has been an absolute beast the last couple of weeks for the Seahawks. He has been a great Fantasy player for anyone who took a chance on him for their fantasy team. I’ll be interested to watch if this is a ..click here to read more
