    A Fool and His Money – Week 4

    by  • October 4, 2009 • Best Bets • 2 Comments

    Bengals (-5.5) over BROWNS The Bengals beat the Packers and Steelers in back-to-back games. The Browns finally benched Ms. Quinn, but Derek Anderson somehow managed to play worse in his second half debut. I have to imagine it’s tough for anybody to like the Browns in this one. Lions (+10) over BEARS The first...

    A Fool and His Money – Week 2

    by  • September 20, 2009 • Best Bets • 6 Comments

    Editor’s Note: Yes, we’re a little late with this one, and yes, it’s probably better if you don’t listen to Nick’s picks anyway. We’ll post them now just so we can still hold him accountable for his mistakes. Texans (+7) over TITANS I want to choose the Titans in this one, but for some...

    Guest Post: 2009 NFL preview from a fantasy outsider

    by  • September 13, 2009 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    This guest post comes to Fantasy Football Fools from Eric Amzallag of sports pick site UnlockedSports.com. Rather than stay in our fantasy bubble this season, I thought taking a look at the playoff picks from a relative fantasy outsider would be a nice jump start to the conversation — since, inevitably, my Super Bowl...

    A Fool and His Money – Week 1

    by  • September 12, 2009 • Best Bets • 3 Comments

    Week 1 is my favorite week to make bets. You get to trust your gut more than any other week of the season, and you feel extremely smug when your predictions come true. But the first games are also full of questions. Which teams developed chemistry over the offseason? Who will exceed expectations, and...

    Preseason Fantasy Football Product Roundup 2009

    by  • September 3, 2009 • Culture • 7 Comments

    From time to time, I get emails from folks within the fantasy football community telling me about their great products, and most of them really are useful. Unfortunately, I rarely get a chance to highlight them for you, the readers, because fantasy football talk, the heart of all we do here at Fantasy Football...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 17

    by  • December 27, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    It’s craziness in Week 17. Will the playoff teams even bother to start their studs? Will the backups be decent when they get in there? We can attempt to negotiate through the darkness of the last week of the season, but in reality, we’ll just be happy to be at .500 for the season...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 16

    Nick’s picking solo once again this week as everything starts to get sketchy here at the end of the season. Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys Ravens (+4) over COWBOYS This game could decide who gets into the playoffs. It’s tough to pick against Dallas at home, but I do think the Ravens are the...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 15

    Jacob here. I guess it’s time for us to stop covering up the deep, dark secret we’ve been hiding for the last several weeks. You see, we killed Chadam. It’s not that he was doing a terrible job picking spreads each week … well, actually, he really was falling off there near the end,...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 14

    by  • December 4, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    Note from Jacob: Somehow, after a rager of a game of Monopoly — yes, we are five years old — and a weekend of fantasy football talk, we got Chadam to disagree with Nick on some of this week’s picks. Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers Fools Take: CHARGERS (-9) over Raiders Nick says:...
