    Dude… Brett Favre and Laveranues Coles

    by  • September 30, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    After a poor showing on Monday night against the Chargers, Brett Favre came up big in Week 4 with a six touchdown performance against the Arizona Cardinals. The prototypical gunslinger quarterback hit 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 289 yards. The six TDs was a career high for the veteran, 38-year-old QB. He...

    Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    by  • September 27, 2008 • Start or Sit • 0 Comments

    This week’s bye shouldn’t have caught you by surprise, but the characters you are left to start might. Strangely enough, many of the players that you might have drafted late or gotten on the cheap have great plays this week. Make sure you don’t forget about these guys, and as always, any start-or-sit questions...

    On the Wire: Waiver Wire Gems from Week 3

    by  • September 24, 2008 • Waiver Wire • 5 Comments

    Apparently, when you try and make things faster around here, it makes the Internet explode, and bad things happen. I’ll write that down, and, I guess, take it as a compliment that we’ve had such a large flow of traffic around at Fools lately. I’ll try not to break anything else, okay? The waiver...

    Dude… Ronnie Brown

    by  • September 22, 2008 • Culture • 1 Comment

    You knew it was coming — the “Dude” mention, not the five touchdowns against the New England Patriots. Brown, who probably sat on your bench this week, gave owners a lovely surprise when he ran in four touchdowns with 113 yards rushing against a defense that hadn’t given up a single rushing touchdown this...

    Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    by  • September 18, 2008 • Start or Sit • 10 Comments

    Obviously, things change in fantasy football. There’s no Tom Brady, and therefore, no Randy Moss. Offenses in Seattle, Cincinnati and Cleveland are in shambles. Jacksonville keeps turning it over, and the Denver Broncos might have the most explosive offense of 2008. Shanny, we knew you had it in you. I won’t even say that...

    Dude… Anquan Boldin

    by  • September 17, 2008 • Culture • 0 Comments

    Thought we weren’t going to mention the old Q this week? Topping Brandon Marshall’s debut, Boldin racked up three touchdowns in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. What a great way to treat the team you want to trade for you, but I guess he wanted to put on a show. Boldin’s final stat...

    On the Wire: Waiver Wire Saviors from Week 2

    by  • September 16, 2008 • Waiver Wire • 3 Comments

    After Week 2′s performances, you should have a pretty good idea what your players are worth. Starting jobs are getting shuffled, and guys we thought might pay off are doing just that. If you didn’t capture one of the big performers of Week 2 on your fantasy team, let’s see what we can do...

    Dude… Brandon Marshall

    by  • September 16, 2008 • Culture • 1 Comment

    You know, I never really doubted Brandon Marshall. Going into Week 2 against San Diego, I expected him to make his presence known but not blow it up like he did. Some analysts are already proclaiming him the wide receiver to beat this year for the top fantasy spot. I am not too far...
