    On the Wire: Waiver Wire Free-for-all from Week 9

    by  • November 5, 2008 • Waiver Wire • 1 Comment

    It’s time for change, America. Bring me your injured, your underperforming, your studs gone duds. Together, we can reshape your fantasy team for the future into a team without injustice, without phantom starts (see: Willis McGahee) and without any of Shanahan’s running backs — well, maybe just one. Yes, we can. Yes, we can....

    Dude… Tyler Thigpen

    by  • November 4, 2008 • Culture • 1 Comment

    Yeah, I said it. Tyler Thigpen. It was popular to hate on him when he first got the start in Kansas City. We all expected Daunte Culpepper to sign with the Chiefs and immediately take Thigpen’s job away. Luckily for Thigpen, Culpepper knew he was going to be able to crush Dan Orlovsky’s thumb...

    Week 8 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders

    by  • October 23, 2008 • Start or Sit • 0 Comments

    There’s a lot of hotness this week, and many players not on a bye might have their best performance of the season for you. My favorite starts are Willis McGahee against Oakland and Chris Johnson against the Colts but even Cedric Benson might break 100 yards this week. Cedric Benson — let that sink...

    Technical difficulties with our Web host had us listed as questionable for Wednesday night, but as you saw Thursday, we showed up to play at game time. We aren’t wishy-washy like Wade Phillips. If we come into the game to answer your questions on Sunday, consider it a bonus. Hot Hands Matt Schaub, QB...

    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...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 2

    by  • September 13, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    Well, my distrust in rookie QBs certainly worked out for me. I’m going back for more. No picks for the Falcons or Ravens this week either. I’ve also noted which bet is my favorite of the week, and coincidentally for Week 2, it’s the first one on the slate. Green Bay Packers at Detroit...
