This game lost a little bit of its shine for me once it was reported that Andrew Luck would be forced to miss his second consecutive start due to injury.

Not to say there still isn’t plenty of intrigue. Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Thursday Night Football Audibles For Colts Vs. Texans”

On Bye: Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots

Before I get into telling you about guys you probably will curse me for later (I apologize for Chris Polk and Brandon Weeden being bad football players), let’s talk about the power of knowing your situation.  Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Week 4 Waiver Wire Targets”

Thursday Night Audibles will be a season long weekly series that helps you fill (or unfill) those last-minute roster holes before the fantasy football week begins

If there were a “can’t miss” Thursday Night Football game this year this would probably rank among them.

I say that for two reasons; the first being that the Giants and Washington have an opportunity tonight to change perceptions about their teams in the NFC East to a national audience early. Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Thursday Night Audibles For Redskins Vs. Giants”

Fantasy Football 2015: Week 3 Waiver Targets

David Johnson averaged 8.4 yards per carry on five carries Sunday (42 yards) and scored a touchdown. Even though Arians is cautious with rookie running backs, I would add him this week if available. (Photo By: Mark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports)

Injuries are starting to mount for quite a few fantasy stars (and emerging options as well).

Just when Tevin Coleman started rolling a rib injury may force him to miss multiple weeks. Drew Brees and Tony Romo both went down with injuries that will cause them to miss multiple weeks. Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Week 3 Waiver Targets”

Fantasy Football 2015: Thoughts On Eagles Troubles, Odell Beckham Jr.’s Breakout and More

Dion Lewis has 258 total yards (109 rushing, 149 receiving) and a touchdown through two games this season. His versatility and (apparent) heavy usage in the Patriots backfield make him a must own in all formats. (Photo: Bleacher Report)

Week 2 of the NFL season is done, and for some so are your fantasy hopes. Yes I realize how ridiculous that last statement sounded but the really ridiculous part is some people actually feel that way.

Don’t. This is when it can get really fun. Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Thoughts On Eagles Troubles, Odell Beckham Jr.’s Breakout and More”

Alright so let’s face it, week 1 for a few of you wasn’t pretty. Especially if you pinned your hopes on first round picks like C.J. Anderson, Peyton Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., and Drew Brees.

But fear not, there is hope out there beyond those picks.  Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2015: Week 2 Waiver Targets”

Division and playoff predictions are tricky in the NFL.

Every week a team can look like a “team to beat” or the worst team you’ve ever seen.
