Elite Quarterbacks: Comparing Their Numbers from 2011 to 2012

6th of January, 2013

Back when we drafted our fantasy football teams in August, it was common to see at least five quarterbacks leave the board by the end of Round 2. Fantasy experts told you to do it. The game of football, with teams consistently moving to a pass-first, spread offense, told you to do it. And heck, […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 13

28th of November, 2012

There’s a story of a British man, Ashley Revell, who bet his entire life savings on a color. In April of 2004, Revell walked into the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada and placed $135,300 on the color red at a vacant roulette table. A crowd gathered, cheering for Revell’s success. As the […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 9

31st of October, 2012

Doug Martin kind of ruined my weekend. No, I wasn’t playing against him. And no, I have nothing against him. He was a “take a seat” guy last week. I really thought higher of the Vikings defense. I guess I should just be mad at them then, huh? Regardless, it was a screw up; a […]

Reaction Monday: Matthew Stafford Defies Logic.

30th of October, 2012

Raise your hand if you benched Matthew Stafford this week. Don’t worry, my hand is raised too. Before you destroy me for even owning Stafford, I got him in a late-round last year in a keeper league. I kept him for $4 of my $200 auction budget this season. Now that that’s out of the […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 8

24th of October, 2012

Look, I really don’t like to brag. I think it’s stupid, especially with the majority of fantasy football talk. But man did my picks look good last week. I told you to start the Tampa Bay offense, Santana Moss, Josh Gordon and Chris Johnson. I reminded you that Matthew Stafford could struggle, and said the […]

Fantasy Disappointments: Several Top Picks Off to Sluggish Starts

20th of October, 2012

Top picks are supposed to be among the elite performers in all of fantasy football. When you select a player in the first or second round, you’re expecting that guy to finish among the top players at his position. When early-round selections produce like they’re supposed to, they’re easy to take for granted. After all, […]

Current Exchange Rates: Week 7

18th of October, 2012

Week in and week out, we have no shortage of surprises. Week 6 was no different. Injuries and general craptastic or surprisingly good play all had a hand in making the week quite an interesting one. There was a good bit of shake up in the value of some players too, so let’s get right […]

Current Exchange Rates: Week 3

20th of September, 2012

First of all, hello. My name is Ladd Davies. I write for, and JJ has asked me to contribute to this awesome fantasy resource that is I will be giving you my weekly “buy low” / “sell high” players in the world of fake football. I’m excited to join and look forward to […]

You’re Doing it Wrong: Sunday Week 1 Recap

10th of September, 2012

As I turned off the TV last night, upset at the result of the game in Denver, I had the realization that the very emotion I was feeling was precisely why I love the game of football. No other sport can combine passion, overreaction and anticipation quite like the National Football League. And when you […]
