We will get to the Week 15 daily fantasy football (DFS) picks, but I have a few things I need to tell you, including a little secret that most DFS specialists would never admit. The bombshell is that I don't win that much money playing DFS.   ...

Congratulations to fantasy owners that have made it to the fantasy playoffs. Whether your league started the playoffs in Week 14 or 15, this is a week where you need to win. Week 14 had a ton of injuries to both running backs and wide receivers, so fantasy...

Most likely, if you're playing in Week 15, you are playing in your fantasy semifinals. You've survived the regular season and you are now just trying to win. In Week 14, some of the previously elite quarterbacks had rough fantasy outings Patrick Mahomes and...

In Week 15, fantasy owners are looking to win to get into the fantasy championship (in most leagues, anyway). Start/sit decisions are even more important than ever, and with all of the injuries in Week 14, this is tougher than it has been. Not only do fantasy...

Both before and after I submit my weekly fantasy defense/special teams (DST) rankings, I like to read what a lot of other industry experts say about the various options out there. And I will apologize on behalf of some of my cohorts. Because some of it is...

With all of the injuries that occurred in Week 14, fantasy football owners need to look at flex players to fill their lineups. Last week, Raheem Mostert was listed as a decent flex play. He had 109 yards from scrimmage, a rushing touchdown, and a TD catch....

To be fair, when I predicted last week that Jason Sanders was not going to score a touchdown again, that was true. However, if fantasy owners picked him up after his big game in Week 13, they were rewarded when he kicked SEVEN field goals in Week 14. Five...
Athlon Sports   Dec 11th, 10:30am ET
Go ahead and skip to the Week 15 fantasy quarterback rankings if you want. But I feel like today has been a day of both explaining things to people as well as my venting about a number of things, so this will be the last one before the day is over.  ...
Athlon Sports   Dec 11th, 10:30am ET
Fantasy owners who were relying on Saquon Barkley or Alvin Kamara to give them a win in Week 14 were disappointed. Both of those RB1s had rough weeks, and if their owners are still in the playoffs, they need to be realistic about those players. Kamara is ranked...
Athlon Sports   Dec 11th, 10:30am ET
The transition from the Week 14 fantasy tight end rankings to the Week 15 edition is more than just an additional week. I will stop complaining about the lack of talent at TE this year and instead look ahead to the potential of next year.   ...
Athlon Sports   Dec 11th, 10:30am ET
Fantasy owners are most likely now in the playoffs, and likely are only reading this if they need to win. With all of the injuries in Week 14, fantasy owners are looking to the waiver wire, to try to find someone that can save their fantasy season. After Alshon...
Athlon Sports   Dec 10th, 9:00am ET
For most fantasy owners, Week 15 marks the fantasy semifinals. It's the time of year where you need to win to move on, and with the number of injuries in Week 14, that may be tough for some fantasy owners.   Read the full story on...
Athlon Sports   Dec 8th, 6:00am ET
As has been the case most of this season, the majority of the fantasy-relevant players on the Week 14 injury report are wide receivers. However, there are a few notable injuries at other positions as well.   Read the full story on...
Athlon Sports   Dec 8th, 6:00am ET
For Week 14, many fantasy-relevant wide receivers are on the injury report. For fantasy owners in the playoffs, some of these may come down to game-time decisions, so be careful when setting lineups. Adam Thielen is doubtful, so fantasy owners should plan...
Athlon Sports   Dec 6th, 9:15am ET
Thanksgiving is over and that means it's time for the fantasy football playoffs. It's the time of year where you need to win to get in. If your league's playoffs don't start until Week 15, odds are that you still need to win in order to either make it into...
Athlon Sports   Dec 6th, 9:00am ET
Fantasy owners playing in Week 14 are likely in the fantasy playoffs. They are looking to put forward their best lineup and that's not always easy. When looking at quarterbacks, fantasy owners usually only have one that they have been using, but they often...
Athlon Sports   Dec 6th, 8:30am ET
  Fantasy owners are looking at the playoffs and trying to put their best lineups forward. It’s a tough task, but they should consider matchups as well. Looking at matchups for running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends may not be quite as beneficial...
Athlon Sports   Dec 5th, 1:30pm ET
I know that my Week 14 daily fantasy football (DFS) picks, like most weeks, are limited to the main slate. And I hate that. But unfortunately that is pretty standard and it's prevalent because it mirrors what the sites do. There is far more action...
Athlon Sports   Dec 5th, 11:00am ET
Welcome to the fantasy playoffs! It's Week 14 and for most people, it is the first week of the playoffs. If you've made it this far, congrats and I hope you have continued success! Most likely you have a solid squad of starters that have led you to the fantasy...
Athlon Sports   Dec 5th, 8:45am ET
Many fantasy owners stream defense/special teams (DSTs). This may work throughout the regular season, but it gets tougher during the fantasy playoffs. Some teams have good playoff schedules and others have brutal ones. While streaming is always an option,...
