Trying to make those last minute adjustments to your roster? Well, the Thursday night game is soon to be underway and there are a few players of note that you’re probably trying to decide whether they’re worth the start on the short week or if you should just bypass them in favor of some other options you may have. At first glance though, a match-up of the Seahawks and Cardinals doesn’t really sound too appealing, unless of course, you own the Seattle defense, but who knows? Maybe there’s a hidden gem or two in there you might like.
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.
Week 6 started out like a thud with Touchdowns from such fantasy stalwarts as Cory Harkey, Joseph Fauria & Thaddeus Lewis before the usual suspects came through to save the day. But as good as Cam Newton, JaMaal Charles and Marshawn Lynch were others such as Jimmy Graham, Ray Rice and Calvin Johnson fell flat. But no matter how bad you may have lost your matchup this week the Packers may have lost even worse considering both Randall Cobb and James Jones left with significant leg injuries. Let’s take a look at all of the games played on this Sunday of Week 6 from a Fantasy Football perspective.
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.
With four weeks of the NFL season in the books, all but two teams have played four games. This week we have four teams on Bye, the first time we've really had to deal with that issue this season, so now it's time that many a fantasy football squads depth will be tested. In what follows we'll point out some of the better matchups of the week. Some of the names will be obvious – yeah it takes a genius of immense knowledge to stay start Drew Brees – but some of the suggestions might boost a few of the fellas significantly up your rankings.
Week 4 is the end of the beginning of the 2013 Fantasy Football Season. At this point in the season we can fairly sit back and judge what we have seen thus far and not call it an overreaction. This week pretty much stayed true to for in that we had a number of significant injuries to deal with, more big performances from guys like Adrian Peterson & Jordan Cameron and more failures from the likes of C.J. Spiller & Roddy White. Week 4 also saw more historic performances from Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense on the good side and from Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars on the miserable side. Let’s relive all of the highs and lows from Week 4 with a full recap of all 15 Sunday Games.
It's Week 4 of the NFL season meaning we've got data to review in order to help us to make more informed decisions in fantasy football. That doesn't mean there is ever unanimity if you ask the experts, and it doesn't mean that the numbers always lead to the correct answer. However history matters a bit, as does current levels of production, usage, matchups etc. This week we'll share our thoughts on some of the better Week 4 matchups out there as you try to continue building upon what was hopefully a solid start to the football season for your fantasy club (who are we kidding, there's no way anyone reading this has only one fantasy football team).

Since when did the NFL start having rain and weather delays? We saw two games greatly affected by this in week 2 and I just can’t help but think of what the players of the 1960’s & 1970’s would think of this? The weather derailed a few high octane offenses in New Orleans, San Francisco and Tampa Bay. Week 2 was also the week of the injured RB as we saw no fewer than four starting RB’s go down with significant injuries this week. Here is a full recap of all the fantasy football news and notes that you won’t find in the local boxscores.
It’s only Week 2 and the fantasy community feels so tense, you’d think we were already in a do or die, win and you’re in situation already. It’s crazy, really. The sense of panic that I feel from some of these emails I receive is immense. There’s so much talk of dropping guys you shouldn’t drop or benching guys you shouldn’t bench, it’s almost worrisome. Take a deep breath, folks. One week does not a season make.
