There will always be sleepers in fantasy sports. Sleepers are those players that explode onto the scene with little hype or regard, but wind up making a huge impact and can be the equivalent of a top round pick for a team that gets lucky to have one. If you are looking for a fantasy football sleeper in 2010 than the following 5 sleepers might be something to help you along your way. Read the rest of this entry »
You thought fantasy football was over for the year, well guess again. We are playing Playoff Fantasy Football for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. The NFL is giving away two tickets to the Super Bowl for the winner and it may sound like a long shot, but if you don’t play you can’t win. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2009 fantasy football season has been a very interesting one through the first six weeks of the year. We’ve seen many breakout players that no one really expected, and we’ve definitely seen our share of busts as well. Today we’re going to focus on the overachievers of the fantasy football world and which are the most meaningful fantasy football surprises.
Let’s give some respect to the guys who have gone above and beyond the call of duty so far. Having impressed just about everyone out there, here are three players we all wish we drafted when we had the opportunity to get them. Read the rest of this entry »
Kellen Winslow. eventually, the move to Tampa Bay to play with the Buccaneers ought to rejuvenate his career. In 2009, with so a bunch of uncertainty at the QB role, it’s probably sound to assume he won’t be generating stats similar to ’07. However, he ought to be a viable target for Byron Leftwich, in addition to a safety net for Josh Freeman (as soon as he’s prepared), so his catch total may be decent.
The following are more Fantasy Football Tight Ends that could be busts for fantasy football owners. Read the rest of this entry »
SAN DIEGO (AP)—LaDainian Tomlinson(notes) has been ruled out of the San Diego Chargers’ home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday due to a sprained ankle, just the second time the star running back will miss a start due to injury in his brilliant nine-year career.
If you haven’t already, try to get Sproles. LT is an over rated has been. Running backs his size don’t last too long in the big leagues. If you drafted him like I did in round 1, just keep him in your back pocket for now.
1. Drew Brees: Brees was simply the best quarterback in the NFL last year, and he’s a superstar. Especially when it comes to fantasy leagues. Brees had a handful of monster games last season, and it’s safe to say that this season should be no different. Bonus points when you factor in Colston’s return.
2. Tom Brady: I’d be tempted to put him at #1, but his rustiness could be an issue at the beginning of the season and it remains to be seen how well he’s recovered from injury. He’s looked strong in the preseason, but that’s no sure thing. Now that we’ve thrown out the risk factors, Brady is a fantasy stud and could easily be the best in football.

Who didn’t predict this a mile away? I was certain that the instant your teammate and fellow crybaby, Jay Cutler, was traded you were going to throw a temper tantrum like a spoiled little child who couldn’t have ice cream. You must grow up!
Brandon, you encompass all the skill in the world and you are blowing it! How many idle Americans (myself included) would die for the insane amount of money you earn undeservedly. Read the rest of this entry »
If you are lucky enough to get the coveted first spot in your fantasy football league this year, take Turner. I know what you’re thinking. What about Adrian Peterson? He is sick. The guy is freakier than Paula Abdul in room full of young male singers. He’s got explosion, speed, and the necessary power to punch it in at the goal line. He is a stud.

The NFL couldnt have scripted a better ending to their first nationally televised Monday Night Football contest of the year. New York Giants rookie Tommie Hill returned a fumble 18 yards for a touchdown with 0:00 on the clock to break open a tie game and give his team a 24-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers in NFL preseason action .
Carolinas fourth string QB Hunter Cantwell was in a position where he just had to take a knee and run out the clock on first and 10 from his eighteen yardline. Instead, he tried to throw a pass only to have his arm hit forcing a fumble. Hill grabbed the loose ball and headed to the endzone for the shockingly bizarre finish and a Giants victory.

I’m watching the playoffs this weekend and noticing a few things that may help my fantasy football 2009 team. One, Joe Flacco is certainly a better QB that many give him credit for. In fact, I’m wondering why isn’t Joe rookie of the year. Where is Matt at these days. Not that they both didn’t have good years, and maybe over the course of the season Matt did enough to deserve the award, but why was Joe not even considered. There wasn’t one vote for him as the #1 candidate for Rookie of the Year, despite being one of two rookies to play every game and lead their team to the playoffs. Read the rest of this entry »
This year I had the unique honor of drafting first in one league, as well as the unlucky honor of drafting last in one league. Normally this wouldn’t be that big of a deal and just a coincidence, but there is an added twist to this story that makes it great for using as a test case for fantasy football draft research and how it effects teams. It wasn’t just my team that had this coincidence this year, but FantasyGirl also plays in both leagues and had the exact same draft spots but in reverse leagues. The league I drafted first, she drafted last, and vice-versa in the other league. This makes for an interesting observation of how the fantasy football draft research can make or break your season before you’ve even had a chance to pick. Read the rest of this entry »
This hasn’t been one of the better seasons for the Chargers, but they are getting some good play from Darren Sproles. With LT being bothered by a toe injury this year, Sproles has gotten more playing time and a chance to showcase his skills for the NFL. Like Turner who ran in the shadow of LT for many years and is now having a breakout season starting for Atlanta, Sproles could also be the one to provide a huge boost to a running game if given the opportunity to produce on a regular basis.
