Better late than never, right?

Before I get started does anyone want to explain themselves for not following my post-week 2 advice and picking up Larry Donnell? Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2014: What’s Real, What’s Not On The Waiver Wire After Week 4”

Let me start by telling you all that I went a clean 4-0 last week in fantasy football. I know, hold your applause.

But really, though, there are so many people to thank. Continue reading “Fantasy Football 2014: What’s Real, What’s Not On The Waivers After Week 3”

Fantasy Football 2014: Fantasy Football Quarterback Tiers Done My Way

Jekyll and Hyde?: Games 1-8: Stafford's numbers were 2,617 yards, 16 TD's, 6 INT's and a 94.7 rating. Games 9-16: 2,033 yards, 13 TD's, 13 INT's and a 72.1 rating
Jekyll and Hyde?: Stafford’s first-half numbers (2,617 yards, 16 TD’s, 6 INT’s and a 94.7 rating) didn’t resemble anything he did in the second-half ( 2,033 yards, 13 TD’s, 13 INT’s and a 72.1 rating)

Joe Flacco and Ben Roesthlisberger both own Super Bowl rings, but didn't get much top-10 love in the rankings
Joe Flacco (average rank: 12.5) and Ben Roesthlisberger (average rank: 11.3) both own Super Bowl rings, but didn’t get much top-10 love in the rankings

I thought it would be fun to ask a few of my friends to rank all 32 starting quarterbacks in the NFL as they saw fit. As you can expect, once some of them (myself included) got into the process they realized that ranking them was more difficult than first thought.
