Jamaal Charles Superstar?

16th of January, 2013

When Andy Reid was announced as the new Kansas City Chiefs head coach (stop with the bad jokes already), my first thought was, “How will this affect Jamaal Charles’ value?” During Andy Reid’s tenure in Philly, you couldn’t put a number on the tweets that mentioned his use of LeSean McCoy (or lack thereof).  McCoy’s fantasy owners seemed […]

10th of November, 2012

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.

Week 9 By the Numbers

22nd of August, 2012

With so much preparation, expert analysis and researching of fantasy players in August, I figured “Hey, maybe I should talk about some of the idiotic claims people are making about running backs this year.” I did this exercise about a month ago with receivers, so instead of any sort of interesting preface or introduction, I’ll […]

32 Teams in 32 Days: Kansas City Chiefs

18th of July, 2012

The Kansas City Chiefs missed a big part of their offense last year when Jamaal Charles tore his ACL less than two games into the season. I won’t blame their 7-9 record on Charles’ absence, but it most definitely made an impact. And remember, quarterback Matt Cassel was out too. The Chiefs’ defense is solid, […]
