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).
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.
It’s a shame Hank Williams Jr. ruined it all with his social and political views, otherwise I could ask you all if you’re ready for some football. But thanks to Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper we’ve had our fix of racism for the season and instead we’re left to just fantasize over some scantily clad country gal singing some song that sort of sounds like a football theme. Yes folks, the NFL season is finally upon us! After months of mini-camps, OTAs, training camp and preseason snoozers, it’s all about to begin tonight with the Ravens and the Broncos squaring off for the inaugural game of the 2013-14 season. And with that brings us to the opening of the fantasy football season. You’ve had your draft, you’ve possibly made a few tweaks to the roster here and there and now it’s time to see if you can actually put your money where your mouth is. We’re going to have extensive coverage here at Fantasy Alarm and we’re going to start out official in-season coverage right here with a fantasy preview of tonight’s game.
After months of prep work, endless back and forth discussions about when to take a quarterback and which position to roster in Rounds 3 and 4 of a draft, it's time to start playing some games. Finally. With that we now have to switch our attention to chososing our starting lineups so now is when the real pressure begins. Who should you be playing in Week 1? Here are some thoughts based on matchups, numbers and some fun facts.
