    Old Vikings Marching Down a Street

    I’m 0-3 in one league, and I can’t stand it. So I’ll be all over the wires this week. You stand to benefit from my helpful or misguided research. Obviously, we had an eventful weekend of football. Or whatever you call the sport the replacement refs are now calling for us. Unfortunately for us...

    Time to drop Ronnie Brown, Fred Davis, and Braylon Edwards

    I’d also add Isaiah Pead, Tim Tebow, and David Wilson (might wait until we see him play Thursday night)  to the droppable list Cecil offers up unless you’re in a deeper league. If you need the spot for a more promising waiver wire pickup, don’t be afraid to let these guys walk this week.

    Who are you torn about dropping this week? Or who are you preparing to drop if they don’t show up in Week 3? Throw some names in the comments, and we’ll discuss.

    Don’t let Russell Wilson start the year on your waiver wire

    If you’re looking for a bang-or-bust QB2 to stash behind an elite QB1, put a claim in on Russell Wilson. The Seattle offense may not be explosive, but Wilson showed his ability to produce big fantasy weeks this preseason. If he does surprise us all by Cam Newton-ing the first few weeks of the season, you’re going to want to have him on your roster.

    As Fantasy Douche explained in his thinking on quarterbacks:

    The thing about quarterbacks who will tuck the ball and run is that they’re like a waterbed. Push it down in one spot and it pops up in another. They’ll pass first if they can, but if their receivers are covered or if they’re unsure, they’ll just run and get a first down. It doesn’t take very long to rack up 40 rushing yards when the QB does this.

    There’s a lot to like about the rookie quarterback no matter how the Seattle offense comes together. So even if you already have two quarterbacks on your roster, consider stashing Wilson for the first few weeks of the season.

    Say Helu to Week 13 Pickups

    Watching the Giants get utterly destroyed by the Saints on Monday Night Football forced me to dwell on one of my mistakes this season — I never should have dropped Victor Cruz. While he looked like a fluke after his big breakout performance, Cruz has come through the byes as one of the best...

    Moore to live for in Week 11 Pickups

    It’s getting to be that time. The fantasy playoffs are near. Records are shaking out. If you’re set to make a deep playoff run, you should be reshaping your team to play it’s best fantasy football in Weeks 14-16. Of course, that’s assuming you’re all playing championship games in Week 16, which is the...
