Week 10 thoughts

Just a few random thoughts from Week 10 as I’m watching the games. Aaron Rodgers evidently ain’t too bright, cause he can’t count to “one thousand four”.  Watching the Dallas/Green Bay game and it’s pitiful watching him get hit time after time after 4 or 5 seconds.  In the NFL, you normally only get 3 […]

Gotta love it

Just reading a player news post on NFL.com and saw this note about Derrick Mason: “He is expected to contribute the most among players who have returned from retirement.” Sorry, I don’t see anyway to link directly to the post, so you may have to search for it.  But you gotta love the dry humor […]

Fantasy Football Insurance

I just saw this site and had to post it here.  You can now purchase insurance on your fantasy football players!  They appear to be serious.  I’m gonna have some fun with the guys in my league this year with this….  gk

Why Peterson isn’t number one

Q: What do RB’s DeAngelo Williams, Matt Forte, Michael Turner, Maurice Jones-Drew, Thomas Jones, LaDanian Tomlinson, Steve Slaton, and Brian Westbrook all have in common? A: They all scored more fantasy points in PPR leagues last year than Adrian Peterson. I have the #1 pick in my PPR league his year.  I’ve never had the […]

Top 100 PPR Ranking

I’ve spent quite a bit of time on this, so hopefully it’ll help you in your PPR fantasy draft.  For better or worse, this is how I currently rank the top 100 NFL players for fantasy value in a PPR league. Lots of things are taken into account here, but there are quite a few […]

Saturday Night Fantasy Thoughts

Since I’m normally sitting on my butt reading anything remotely fantasy relevant on Saturday nights, I decided to do a stream of consciousness type of post.  I’m thinking about doing this each week.  Who knows, maybe it’ll eventually become known worldwide as SNFT.   Sure it will…. It’s just getting to halftime of the  Redskins/Steelers game, […]

2009 Fantasy Football PPR Ranking – Aug 22

Here’s my second run through offensive rankings for point per reception (PPR) leagues.  As in my first run, keep in mind that I came up with these rankings based on how valuable I think players will be overall in PPR league scoring in 2009.  If you are in a “standard” scoring league these rankings will […]

Preseason week 1 thoughts

I watched a few preseason games the past few days, and while it’s pretty early to draw any conclusions, here are a few of my thoughts in no particular order. Stafford is the real deal.  If Keary Colbert could catch a cold (he had at least 3 drops) Stafford would have had some great stats.   […]

Fantasy Football 201

I was going to title this “Fantasy Football 101″ but I think that really needs to be a discussion of basics, like “know your scoring system” and “never draft a kicker before the last round”.  I cover that here. This post is about how to draft for value.  How to get the most bang for […]

NFL Fantasy Week 13

Ok, I managed to squeak by with a win last week – as I predicted based on the matchups, it was my lowest scoring week of the year – just 99 points.  But I made it to my Fantasy Football League’s playoffs undefeated at 12-0. Another tough test this week though, because both Reggie Bush […]
