For a complete breakdown of how the assumption draft works, click here. For a quick explanation, keep reading this sentence: We assigned notable rookies and free agents to teams (that’s […]

Week 15 By the Numbers

18th of December, 2012

We have to cherish history. It doesn’t matter if you missed out on Adrian Peterson in your fantasy draft this year. Heck, I even told people not to draft him. But that doesn’t mean I want him to fail. I want him to prevail. I want to watch something historical happen. I want to tell […]

Current Exchange Rates: Week 11

15th of November, 2012

It’s already Week 11 of the NFL season, and trade deadlines are fast approaching. Time to get those lineups as stacked as possible, and it’s time to start cashing in on that depth you have on your bench. With the final round of bye weeks coming it will become almost useless to have high quality […]

Week 10 By the Numbers

13th of November, 2012

There have been two incredibly gutsy performances that stick out in my mind this year. No matter who you are, what team you root for, or how you feel about these particular players – you just can’t help but smile.

5th of November, 2012

Every Autumn Sunday is a roller coaster. You strap in (on your couch), slowly ascend up the opening hill (watch pre-game shows and go on Twitter for start/sit opinions) and then once you hit the apex of the hill (1:00PM EST), you start. It’s go time. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 1

4th of September, 2012

For the next four months, your life is different. Instead of planning your weekend around a Saturday night, you’re scheduling it around your football team’s game. Rather than cutting the grass on Sunday, you’re doing it on Saturday. And for the religious folk out there, you’re now taking the Saturday night service or mass alternative. […]

32 Teams in 32 Days: Minnesota Vikings

1st of August, 2012

You know that feeling when you lose your wallet? You spend 5 or 10 minutes looking through your house, hoping it will show up in the most obscure places possible. And that sensation in your stomach – it’s nothing short of awful. You think the absolute worst. You have ideas in your head that don’t […]
