This week in the NFL will long be remembered for Peyton Manning’s return to Indianapolis for the first time as an opponent. But there were many other memorable moments this week including several that will haunt your fantasy football teams for quite awhile. Injuries to QB’s such as Jay Cutler, Nick Foles and Sam Bradford are atop the headlines but losing Arian Foster and Doug Martin could very well have hurt fantasy owners more this week. Breakout performances by players such as Roy Helu, Jordan Reed, Jarrett Boykin and Harry Douglas helped to heal some of the wounds created by injury. Let’s take a look inside everything that happened in Week 7 of the NFL from a Fantasy Football perspective.
We’re getting ready to start up Week 6 of the NFL which means the fantasy football season is about to hit its midway point in many leagues. That means wins are more crucial than ever. Falling below .500 at this point puts you strongly in danger of missing your playoffs and putting you on the path towards holiday depression. So let’s get this week started off on the right foot and take a closer look at tonight’s match-up between the Giants and the Bears. Let’s make sure we’ve got everyone active who needs to be active and those who shouldn’t be, back on the bench.
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).
Week 3 is going to be remembered more for who didn’t do what rather than who actually showed up this week. There were so many disappointments this week from Marshawn Lynch ruining the greatest of matchups to the entire Giants offense soaking the bed with diarrhea. Then of course it just wouldn’t have been a Sunday of Football without several notable RB’s going down with injuries. While we wait on more news from C.J. Spiller, Daryl Richardson, James Starks and Chris Ivory let’s sit back and review everything that happened in Week 3.
Given the recent match-up article written by Ray Flowers earlier in the week, I’d like to avoid the redundancy of a full-blown fantasy football game capsule piece. Instead, I’ll simply go through each match-up and cite a player or two who I think could find a fair amount of success this Sunday (and Monday). I may agree with Ray on some and I may disagree on others, but you should get the full spectrum of necessary information needed to set your lineup for optimal points. And if we skipped over someone you may have a question about, feel free to hit me up on Twitter or email. I’ll be happy to answer your questions. But in the meantime…
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.
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.
