Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 is a lot different than every other week in the fantasy season, and a big part of why a lot of people are against playing a week 17 championship. A lot of teams have nothing to play for this week. Whether they have locked up a playoff spot or they have no chance […]

Waiver Wire Week 17

Waiver Wire Week 17

The last waiver article for the 2016 season. Many are probably already long gone either because of early elimination or a week 16 final. But, for those of you still in the running for a week 17 title, here is my final waiver wire article for the season. And don’t forget my tip from last […]

Start or Sit Week 16

Start or Sit Week 16

Wow. Week 16. Time really flies. If I had to guess for a majority of you this is the championship, or at least week one of a two-week final. I know for weeks I have been saying trust the research, and I do think that is true, but there is something about championship week that […]

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Whether this is your final run at waivers or you have one more go at it before a week 17 matchup, the basic idea doesn’t change. Use whatever FAAB you have left to get one of the top options. You will notice I didn’t put in FAAB amounts or if you should burn a waiver […]

Week 15 Start or Sit

Week 15 Start or Sit

If you’re reading still, congrats on still being alive. Week 15 has a couple interesting storylines heading into the weekend. The cold and the bad quarterback situation. Weather in the Packers/Bears and Chiefs/Titans games are going to be below freezing. While cold isn’t typically a big deal, below freezing is a different story. If I […]

Week 15 Waiver Wire

Week 15 Waiver Wire

With only one (two if you play into week 17) waiver weeks left, if there is a player on the wire that you need or can help you win this week or next, you have to do what you can to get him. No saving it for someone better now.  If the top names aren’t […]

Start or Sit Week 14

Start or Sit Week 14

Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs for a lot of owners, meaning this week is do or die. I have mentioned it before and will say it again: don’t second guess something if it makes sense. Playoff time usually has a lot of second guessing because of the finality of it all. […]

Week 14 Waiver Wire

Week 14 Waiver Wire

It’s playoff time which means every pickup could be the difference from being a champion or just another playoff team This time of the year most of the guys you are looking to add to give you a title are running backs filling in for injured starters. Receivers that are still available, are in many […]

Start or Sit Week 13

Start or Sit Week 13

For a lot of people this is the last chance to clinch a playoff spot or play in a meaningful fantasy football game. For some this could be the start of the fantasy playoffs. If you haven’t clinched or are in a “win and in” type situation, these are the start sit decisions you will […]

Waiver Wire Week 13

Waiver Wire Week 13

There might be some interesting guys out there in your league, but for the most part this week’s waiver wire is boring. A lot of guys from last week graduated to being too highly owned. I would empty the wallet if someone like Sammy Watkins was still available. This seems like a stock up on […]

Planning for 2017: Dynasty league waiver options

Planning for 2017: Dynasty league waiver options

Not everyone can make the playoffs. For those playing in redraft leagues, being eliminated from title contention leaves you with little to do other than maybe play spoiler in week 13 or hope to win the consolation bracket. It is a different story in dynasty and keeper leagues. This is the time to scour the […]

Start or Sit Week 12

Start or Sit Week 12

How good does it feel to be able to look at your full roster this week? No byes and only a handful of injuries expected to keep players out this Sunday. As good as it feels to have our full roster at our disposal, this is where the decisions get difficult. When you didn’t have […]

Waiver Wire Week 12

Waiver Wire Week 12

For the first times since week three we have an NFL week without any teams on bye. If you are holding a Cole Beasley type as a fourth receiver or Matt Asiata as a fourth running back, it is time to dump them for either the high upside player or you running back hand cuffs. […]

Start or Sit Week 11

Start or Sit Week 11

We have been there on a few occasions, but this is really when it starts to happen. The time where we are looking at our fantasy lineups and saying if you told me blank on draft day I would have thought you were nuts. Here are some of my “if you told me that on […]

Waiver Wire Week 11

Waiver Wire Week 11

Now that we are at the tail end of the regular season it is time to use up that FAAB on any player that might win championships. The best way to handle the waiver wire is to grab the players one or two weeks before they breakout. Save yourself the waiver claim and the FAAB […]

Start or Sit Week 10

Start or Sit Week 10

This is where many teams start getting into do or die territory. High-end teams are looking to put themselves into a position for a bye or regular season winnings, while everyone with six or fewer wins is fighting for a playoff spot. Just because your team is 6-3 does not mean you are safe for […]

Waiver Wire Week 10

Waiver Wire Week 10

The regular season is winding down, and that means it is nearing the time to empty the bank or use those waiver priorities. There are a few potential league winning type players on this week’s wire. I could see the likes of Kapri Bibbs, Dion Lewis, Paul Perkins, J.J. Nelson, Adrian Peterson, and Sammy Watkins […]

Start or Sit Week 9

Start or Sit Week 9

I hope if you’re reading this it is for the enjoyment, not because you are desperately searching for starting options. This isn’t just a six-team bye, it’s a six-team bye with a lot of good fantasy options missing. The Patriots, Cardinals, Texans, Bears, Redskins and Bengals are all off. Not only are those teams gone, […]

Waiver Wire Week 9

Waiver Wire Week 9

This is going to be a crazy week for waivers. A lot of guys popping up in interesting positions and a lot of people in need for starters in a week that is probably the worst bye week of the season. Not only are there short-term fill ins, but we have some league winning potential […]
