There’s No “I” in Fantasy Football: It’s Time to Be Rational

21st of January, 2013

As Joe Flacco threw his third touchdown against the Patriots, the single thought that rushed through my head was, “Here we go again.” I mentioned (well, it was more than just a mention) last week that I have this unreasonable disgust for the Ravens quarterback. I’ve never called him “bad” at the quarterback position, but […]

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, […]

The Fantasy Football Future: A Snippet From The Late Round Quarterback

6th of December, 2012

The following is the brief closing chapter “The Fantasy Football Future – Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” from 2012’s version of The Late Round Quarterback. If you’d like to purchase the book, click here. I don’t anticipate this strategy changing anytime soon. We’ve seen the NFL transform from a league with elite running […]

Week 13 By the Numbers

4th of December, 2012

I find it interesting when folks on Twitter and the ones who frequent this website are surprised that I point out every mistake in drafting a quarterback early. “Ok, ok,” says Twitter follower Thomas. “We get it. Draft your quarterbacks late.” The problem, Thomas, is that “we” is only a selection of people. There are […]

Reaction Monday: Who Needs an Elite Quarterback?

3rd of December, 2012

When you draft your fantasy team in mid-August, there’s little reason for you to stare down and analyze the Week 13 schedule. After all, who would’ve thought the Dolphins would be decent, the Rams would be competitive against the 49ers and Charlie Batch would be starting at quarterback for the Steelers? No, you’re not drafting […]

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 […]

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 […]

Reaction Monday: Brian Hartline did what?

1st of October, 2012

I didn’t realize what Brian Hartline’s stat line looked like until he caught an 80-yard touchdown from Ryan Tannehill in the 4th quarter. And even after the touchdown occurred, I still didn’t believe it. How could Brian Hartline catch 12 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown against one of 2012’s best defenses? Better yet, […]

Really Neat or Take a Seat: Week 4

26th of September, 2012

I was wrong. Chris Johnson is not a good running back. He shouldn’t have been a first round draft pick, and he shouldn’t be someone you’re starting in your weekly fantasy lineup. I told people to draft him, and it was clearly incorrect direction. Look, you can’t be a good fantasy football manager if you […]
