Week 7 is upon us and thus we will be without the services of the Saints and Raiders this week. But that is perfectly alright considering the following two weeks will send a collective twelve teams on a bye. But before we get too ahead of ourselves let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us. Peyton Manning returns to Indianapolis in what will be a highly motivated game for both teams. Two of the worst defenses in football in the Vikings and Giants do battle on Monday Night which will create a very interesting dynamic as our Fantasy Games come down to the wire. Let’s get things started here with the complete Week 7 Player Rankings.
Playoff Fantasy Football has become big over the past few years for a number of reasons. Obviously, this is an excellent chance to redeem an otherwise unsuccessful fantasy football regular season. But it’s also a chance to enjoy playoff football even though your favorite team or players are out of it. Don’t let the NFL season die people. What else are you going to do? Sit around and watch Storage Wars with your girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband/roommate who you don’t sleep with? All you have to do is get 5-7 of your buddies together and draft a playoff team. There are no head to head matchups to worry about or any other maintenance needed either. Playoff Fantasy Football is draft and go. The goal is to have players who are playing in the Super Bowl and thus accumulate the most total points for your team. To help you out I am even going to show you my own personal stash. Here are my 2013 Playoff Fantasy Football Rankings:
Hopefully you have all survived the Frankenstorm out east and are right now sitting somewhere warm and dry while trying to figure out your fantasy football lineups for this week. If you don’t have any Patriots on your roster then chances are you are in good shape this week. The only other teams off are the 49ers, Rams and Jets whom combined have ½ a useful fantasy player. Here are my official week 9 rankings:
We’re at the midway point of the fantasy football regular season. Where you go from here will primarily be determined by how well you manage your team from here on out. Stop hoping for another breakout player jumping up on the waiver wire who’ll rescue your season or a trade that you must make to survive. If you haven’t made those moves or found those players yet than you’re in trouble my friends. But fear not I say!! For I have the answers to all your week 8 problems right here in the weekly fantasy rankings:
This is the mountain we have all been climbing towards. Six teams are off this week including some of the most fantasy noteworthy teams like the Broncos, Chargers, Eagles and Falcons. Oh, the Chiefs and Dolphins are also not playing but each of those teams have maybe 1 usable player each. So, this week we are going to have to rely on role players to get us over the hump and hopefully squeak out a win. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve and you’ll find out exactly who they are in this weeks rankings:
I get a kick out of all the folks in the fantasy sports industry who go absolutely berserk over making a right decision one week into the season. My best advice to anyone is be wary over the ones who beat their chest the most over one or more of their predictions. In my experience those are the ones who are overcompensating for a lot of very bad advice and trying to pretend like one good call outweighs all of the bad. Well it doesn’t work that way and most importantly we don’t work that way. Fantasy Alarm is about advising our readers/listeners/subscribers how to win championships. You won’t hear too much about the fact that we were advocating that Adrian Peterson would be ready for the start of the season as far back as June. You won’t hear about us telling everyone to watch out for Russell Wilson this summer. Nor will you hear about our week 1 predictions of Tony Romo, Sidney Rice or Stevan Ridley. All we do is win and guide our people to championships. That journey continues this week with our official Week #2 Rankings:
