Can I Kick It: Week 6

10th of October, 2013

Week 5 was quite an interesting week from a kicker perspective. There was an absolute ton of scoring, as we saw not one, but TWO kickers turn in twenty point performances. There were also SEVEN kickers that finished with 15+ points. I would not be shocked if many a fantasy game turned on the relative […]

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 […]

Week 4 By the Numbers

3rd of October, 2012

I couldn’t help but smile as Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Drew Brees all put up statistically favorable numbers in Week 4. It gives those early-round quarterbackers hope. They think to themselves, “Hey, Colton (this is Colton’s head talking, by the way). You did a good job drafting Aaron Rodgers fourth overall. Go get yourself […]

Reggie’s Resurrection

21st of September, 2012

Reggie Bush’s journey to fantasy stardom has resembled one of his highlight reel runs from his days at USC: long, winding and astounding. In his time as a Trojan, Bush was nothing short of remarkable. Simply put: he was one of the most electrifying running backs in the history of college football. Every time Bush […]

Week 2 By the Numbers

18th of September, 2012

Seriously, could you imagine being part of the Buccaneers’ secondary? This is their job. They do this for a living. To allow Eli Manning to do what he did in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game would be like you or me setting a work-related project on fire just minutes before it was due. And […]

Reaction Monday: Is Chris Johnson a Fantasy Bust?

17th of September, 2012

It was clear to me that my audience didn’t understand the “You’re Doing it Wrong” articles that I had planned to post each week. While some liked the read from last week, retweeting it and letting me know it was enjoyable, others just couldn’t comprehend the cynical concept. “You’re not doing it wrong if you […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 2

13th of September, 2012

I’ve come to the realization that predicting Week 1 outcomes is like predicting the weather in a Midwest City. Last week was difficult. If you missed my “Really Neat or Take a Seat” column for Week 1, then you failed to see that I told you to bench Demaryius Thomas and Mike Wallace, and start […]

32 Teams in 32 Days: Overview

2nd of August, 2012

The 32 Teams in 32 Days series is complete. And, in hindsight, I really hope the articles on each team aren’t in front of you on draft day. After all, when I wrote about the Lions on July 8th, I was much higher on a guy like Jahvid Best than I am now. But, looking […]
