    On the Waiver Wire: Brian Westbrook LIVES, Week 13 Pickups, and a Massive Collection of Advice to Get Your Team Right for the Fantasy Football Playoffs

    I hate handcuffing. I always feel like handcuffs are a waste of a roster spot, and I’d rather have a starting running back from another team than carry a guy who doesn’t play just in case my starter goes down. The backups are rarely as good or as big a part of the offense...

    Why Jahvid Best is the Best

    With a name like Best, you should have known he was going to be good, but  this video might also have helped clue you in on his talent.

    You can only blame yourself for not getting a piece of this guy in your own fantasy football draft. I’ve heard people compare him to Chris Johnson and a young Brian Westbrook, both good signs for his future in the league.

    Personally, I hope he’s more like Johnson because a breakout season much like the one Chris Johnson put together last year would just do wonders for my RB2 spot.

    If you’re on the outside of Best looking in, it’s going to be difficult to land him unless you really, really want to buy him at his current cost: arm, leg, firstborn, and probably your first round draft pick.

    It will be “Best” to give it some time and see if his current owner gets antsy or needs to make a deal to compensate for another weakness in their team. If they come calling, don’t hesitate to take Best.

    On the Wire: Week 9 Pickups and Must-Claims

    There’s nothing glamorous about pickups at this point in the season. You’re either struggling to find meaning in your season after falling desperately behind the rest of the teams in your league or fortifying and defending your team by building a stronger bench with these free agents. But the picks are especially un-sexy this...
