As we get ready to preview Week 5 I just want to mention to you guys who ready this every week that I have been using these very rankings to win some nice cash in weekly Fantasy Football. Whether you play at Draft Kings dot com, FanDuel dot com or Draft Street dot com, these rankings can earn you straight cash homey. I am living proof. Anyways, as we march into Week 5 the most noticeable trend is the lack of usable RB’s this week. With Alfred Morris, Adrian Peterson, Le’Veon Bell and Doug Martin being on a bye we are left with vomit inducing players like LaGarrette Blount, Danny Woodhead and Chris Ogbonnaya. In other words, you had better hit on your WR’s & TE’s this week. Here are my Week 5 Fantasy Football 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:
Dear fantasy football player. If you are reading this then that means you have survived to play in the semi finals of your league. If you read this article last week you would have seen that Bryce Brown was a risky play, Eli Manning was money and Danario Alexander was a must start. But this is a whole new week with new heroes set to bring you to fantasy glory. Let’s take a look at the Week 15 Rankings:
Let the playoffs begin!! For those of you who are new to the fantasy postseason let me start by saying welcome. At this point of the season it is all about survival. It doesn’t have to be pretty, you don’t have to score the most points in your league. You simply have to win your matchup and move on. For those of you confused by that what I am saying is that you may implement little tricks into your lineup like starting a WR simply because you are playing that teams QB. This is not the time to “set it and forget it” as far as setting your lineup. You’ve got to be adjusting to the changing conditions during the games on Sunday’s if you truly want to put yourself in the best possible situation to win. Stay tuned to Fantasy Alarm all week long for special Fantasy Playoff themed articles and as always be sure to listen to me and Ted Schuster on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio on Wednesday 11PM-1AM, Saturday 10PM-1AM and Sunday 7PM-10PM. Here are your week 14 rankings:
For many this is the final week of the fantasy football regular season. If you are reading this you are probably making your last ditch efforts to get into the playoffs and vie for the championship. Therefore, I took extra care this week in making these rankings. Every single ranking is the absolute “next man up” for me at each position as if I were drafting one team for a must win this week. I must stress to all of you though to pay attention to Fantasy Alarm throughout Sunday morning for injury updates and be sure to listen to our show Saturday Night on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. Here are the week 13 rankings:
Bye weeks are finally behind us as we make our final push toward the playoffs. You will notice that players who have routinely shown up on these rankings are suddenly gone. This is because with four extra teams (at least) there are many more choices for your lineup. Remember that the goal is to have your starting QB & TE be in the top 12 (assuming a 12 team league), 2 RB’s in the top 24 and 3 WR in the top 36. If you are in these ranges the chances are that you’ll win your matchup this week. If not, then you have some work to do. Use these rankings as your guide to another victory and an eventual championship. You’re welcome America:
If you’ve managed to stay in contention this far while also hanging onto a good amount of your free agent dollars, than you are in good shape my friends. As you will see in this weeks rankings, there are some names that have surged in value over the past few weeks and whom may be still available on your waiver wire right now. The position of need this week is obviously RB because not only are there few RB’s to trust, four of them (Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson and Ahmad Bradshaw) are off this week. Here are the players that will get you over the hump this last week of bye’s and help you move closer to securing that coveted playoff spot:
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:
