    A Fool and His Money in Week 7

    by  • October 16, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    This week, I wanted to educate you on two of my favorite types of bets, the parlay and the progressive parlay. With these two wagers, you can arm yourself with the tools necessary to lose money like Chadam and I do. Excited? photo credit: locusolus A parlay is when you combine several point-spread wagers...

    Foolish Thoughts on Week 6: Last-second nonsense

    by  • October 14, 2008 • Culture, News • 1 Comment

    Who is the better Manning now? I think Peyton Manning put ex-lax in his brother’s Gatorade this week. It was time to shut up the critics. Peyton gets three touchdowns; Eli gets three picks. At least in fantasy, it looks like Peyton may have reclaimed his top spot on the Manning mantel for now....

    Week 6 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    It’s about time some of the fantasy studs broke out this year. This week has some matchups to watch. If you ‘bought low’ on guys like Ryan Grant and Maurice Jones-Drew, picked up Deuce McAllister or drafted Bernard Berrian for depth, this week should show you what they’re worth. For those of you who...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 5

    by  • October 5, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    Chadam and Nick had a rough weekend. Nick was swamped last week trying to put together a fantasy lineup that could stop my crushing force of a team in our shared fantasy football league. Unfortunately for Nick, it looks like his efforts were in vain. Chadam, on the other hand, spent the entire weekend...

    Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    I am not sure who won the VP debate last night. Both political parties seem to believe their candidate stepped up to the plate. The NFL is still pretty split in making a decision this election year. I do know that Al Davis likes Sarah Palin — mostly because he believes she’s youthful and...

    Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    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...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 3

    by  • September 19, 2008 • Best Bets • 1 Comment

    Last week, Nick and I were on fire. We had identical picks for 12 of the 15 games, and in those games, the two of us went 8-3 with one push. Sadly, I lost the three picks on which we disagreed. After a sterling 11-3-1 record in Week 2, Nick is now up by...

    Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    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...
