In My Defense is a weekly feature designed to give you a little advice when it comes to streaming defenses.

Fantasy Football Aside, RGIII is the Best Offensive Rookie

8th of December, 2012

I know this is a fantasy football blog, but you can’t play the pretend game without its football core. And the sport– through the media and other outlets – has this bizarre debate being talked about to near exhaustion: Just who is the NFL’s best offensive rookie? The debate differs completely when analyzed from a […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 12

21st of November, 2012

When you start a new job, nobody really expects you to know everything about the company and your daily tasks during your first week. You get to work, meet new people, get acclimated to processes and slowly immerse yourself in your new environment. As the weeks go by, expectations change. You slowly begin to understand […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 11

14th of November, 2012

The moment happens all the time.  It’s usually at the end of the set of the early games, where all kinds of teams are coming back or putting up some massive yardage totals in garbage time. It’s the moment; the moment your team gains 30 fantasy points in a matter of seconds. It’s that moment […]

Four Questions to Ask Before You Select a Keeper

You’ve developed a relationship with plenty of NFL players over the years through fantasy football. Deny it all you want, but I can guarantee you there’s someone on your team, right now, that you’d take a bullet for. You drafted Jamaal Charles in 2009.

Reaction Monday: The NFL Roller Coaster

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 […]

Playing Probability: A Mid-Season Late-Round Quarterback Report

3rd of November, 2012

I wrote The Late Round Quarterback because I wanted to share a secret. It started last October. I needed a little spark to my every day work, so I opened up a Word document and just started writing. Chapter headlines turned to actual content, and the white space in my document became crammed with tables […]

Value: Why Do We Lose Sight After the Season Starts?

27th of October, 2012

There’s a purpose, or objective, associated with everything you do. You go to the gas station. Why? Because you need gas. Your car won’t run without it. You slip in your Madden disc for some gaming. Why? Because you want the enjoyment of seeing your beloved Browns actually win a game. Everything you do, there’s […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 7

17th of October, 2012

The word “neat” is one of the best descriptors in the entire English dictionary. “Hey, neat shirt, Thomas.” Am I being a sarcastic prick, or am I just an incredibly innocent individual trying to tell Thomas that his clothing is aesthetically enjoyable? Transfer this way of thinking to my weekly “Really Neat or Take a […]
