Backups who haven’t seen any action this season are much more important, and you might find yourself saving your season or winning in Week 17 by...

    The triumphant return of Thursday Night Football! I always thought the Thursday night games were stretching it. We already have college games on Tuesday and Thursday if you are really feigning — granted they aren’t the most interesting games, but there is a football on a green field with guys in helmets going after...

    Week 9 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...

    On the Wire: Waiver Wire Grabs from Week 5

    by  • October 7, 2008 • Waiver Wire • 4 Comments

I don’t even remember who my second running back was, but, in the late rounds, I picked myself up a rookie with too many names, Maurice Jones-Drew.
