Oh Week 7, you vex me. The Bye weeks are manageable for one more week before all hell breaks loose in Weeks 8 & 9 when six teams are out of action each week, but every week is important in the push for the fantasy football playoffs. That means we've got one more week of fairly normal plays since most clubs are still active. However, which guys have the best matchups? Which guys are in line for touch matchups this week? Oh hell, we'll focus more on the guys you should feel good about having in your lineup this week when we talk Week 7 matchups.
The advice is always the same every year – get your running backs first. The position is thin, there are too many committee situations and when it comes to fantasy football, he who touches the ball the most stands the best chance to score the most points. Top-flight running backs are the key to your success. But while the advice is still solid, this year seems to be more of a nightmare with regard to the position. Well, more of a nightmare than usual, it seems.
You’ve been reading the latest news, checking in with all the strategy articles and have obviously gone through as many start/sit columns you can find. But the more information you have, the better off you are and some of the most useful advice pieces are the ones that have the most updated injury information and expected team game plans. So with that, here are some of my last-minute thoughts with regard to the NFL Week 6 match-ups and how they should be affecting your fantasy football lineup. Remember, we’re not here to tell you that you should start Drew Brees or Marshawn Lynch, so unless the match-up is so ridiculously unfavorable, we’ll just assume that you are wisely keeping your studs in your active lineup. We’re looking at the role players here.
It's Week 6, and things are starting to crystallize in the world of fantasy football. Guys like Vick and Daniels can't stay healthy, what a shock. Guys like Brees and Romo continue to get it done, what a shock. Youngsters like Lacy and Cameron are establishing themselves as weekly starters. Which fellas on the gridiron have the best matchups for Week 6? So glad you asked as we've got a lot of information to share with you in your quest to emerge with the “W” in the sixth week of the NFL season.
When this week’s games are over, we’ll have completed roughly one-third of the fantasy football season and it’s at this point where you’ll see whether your team has what it takes to compete in the playoffs or if an overhaul is needed via the trade front. Waiver wire picks will help supplement, but there’s currently nothing out there that will push you over the hump if your squad is struggling. And what’s most important this week is the watchful eye that you must keep on some of this season’s biggest disappointments and early-season strugglers. It’s a make-it-or-break-it week for many players. If they shine, then you have hope that replacements aren’t needed. But if they continue to struggle, you are left with the choice of either selling-low to salvage what you can or simply just cutting bait and accept your losses. Here are a few players whose owners will be locked onto their performances this week. Will they redeem themselves finally or have they just been a waste of a high draft choice this whole time?
Sports Tradex is a fantasy sports stock exchange for predicting team and player performance.

It's already the third week of the NFL season. If you're 2-0 you feel great. If you're 1-1 you feel hopeful. If you're 0-2 your ready to blow your entire team up (I know some of you are staying the course even if the first two weeks didn't turn out well, but far more of you are cursing the players on your team and giving them the evil eye). Regardless of the spot you are in, here are some thoughts on players heading into Week 3. Which guys should you trust to as starters this week to keep the good times rolling or to turn around a rough start? Here are some thoughts.
What happened in Week 2 of the NFL season? That's what we'll discuss in this article. We won't touch on Thursday Night Football in this piece. That's so yesterday. We also won't touch on Sunday Night Football because we wanted to get this info out to you as soon as we could and that meant we posted this before the game was complete. What we will touch on is some of the best and brightest of Week 2, those that failed to live up to expectations, and all those running backs that seem to have picked up an injury in the NFL's second week.
Well now that was quite the opening week for the NFL now, wasn’t it? We saw some high-powered offenses, some tough defensive plays, and plenty of fantasy scoring to go around. Surprisingly, the number of injuries was held to a minimum, yet the waiver wire will be a hot-bed of action this week as we also saw a few names emerge from the shadows to take center stage. With so much to talk about, let’s just get started right away with a collection of notes from around the league and the potential fantasy fallout that you as an owner may need to address.
