Before I get into my Week 3 fantasy start/sit advice for wide receivers, is it too late for a do-over? Better yet, if given the option, would I want the do-over? Because the truth is I've done pretty well to this point with my suggestions regarding running...

Before I get into the Week 3 fantasy start/sit advice for quarterbacks, tight ends and defense/special teams, here's a little peek behind the curtain. I have zero affinity, negative or positive, towards the San Francisco 49ers. They are like any other team...

In recognition of the release of the new Rambo movie, I will make an unexpected connection between the second film in the series and my Week 3 fantasy start/sit advice for fantasy running backs. In the final scene of Rambo: First Blood Part II, Sylvester Stallone's...

It's Week 3 for fantasy football owners, and some owners are happy with their 2-0 record. Others are scratching their head, wondering what went wrong as they are 0-2. Many quarterbacks have been injured, which has hurt their real-life teams and affects their...

So lots of quarterback changes around the NFL in Week 3. There may not be a huge impact for those that take part in daily fantasy football (DFS), but one of the most pressing questions at the question is this: do you start Daniel Jones, aka Danny Dimes this...

Fantasy football owners might be panicking about their quarterback situation, but the running back landscape, for the time being, is still doing ok (please, don't let me jinx that). With no major injuries to look at yet, the running backs that are faltering...

While the top five wide receivers in terms of fantasy football in Week 1 were mostly unexpected, the top five for Week 2 were entirely different. Julio Jones made the list, as did Odell Beckham Jr. However, the remaining three were Emmanuel Sanders, Chris...

While I have my differences with the industry consensus for the Week 3 quarterback rankings, I am pretty much in agreement with the tight end position this week. The biggest difference being I am a couple of spots higher on Mark Andrews this week compared...

The fantasy bandwagon for some quarterbacks seems to be getting more and more crowded. But I've been driving the Jimmy Garoppolo bus before the season even began. Apparently, some of the other experts out there refuse to believe. As of this writing, many are...

Joey Slye (15 percent owned) was the top-scoring kicker in Week 2 for fantasy owners. His Week 2 performance catapulted him into the top 10 for Week 3. For those streaming kickers, look to start Slye in Week 3. Often, Thursday night games are lower-scoring....

Fantasy owners often struggle when they have to fill the flex spots in their roster. It's a toss-up between a running back and a wide receiver most of the time. However, often a tight end may factor into the mix. It's feasible that a fantasy owner has Travis...

Like my tight end rankings for Week 3, there is not a lot of deviation from the consensus rankings when it comes to fantasy defense/special teams (DSTs). However, there is some noteworthy movement between this week and last.   Read...

Week 2 was tough for fantasy owners who want to have a starting quarterback on their roster. While injuries are always a part of the game, it seemed that the quarterback position was hit especially hard this past week. Drew Brees is out with a thumb injury...

It's been a brutal couple weeks for quarterbacks in both the real-life NFL and fantasy football. Perhaps you just lost Ben Roethlisberger for the season? Or Drew Brees was your fantasy quarterback and you're likely not going to see him on the field again before...

It's only Week 2 and there are already plenty of factors at play when it comes to fantasy start/sit decisions for running backs. First off, some significant injuries have already occurred, such as Derrius Guice going on injured reserve. There's also some backfields...

Following Week 1, fantasy owners have to be aware of a number of injuries. Three fantasy-relevant players are now on injured reserve: Derrius Guice, Nick Foles, and Devin Funchess. Other players who have already been ruled out for Week 2 include Tyreek Hill,...

We are going to keep it simple for the Week 2 fantasy start/sit advice for quarterbacks, tight ends and defense/special teams (DSTs).   I am not going to recommend starting anyone that I see typically in the top dozen and my sit option is usually lower...

Week 1 of the fantasy football season is over, and Week 2 is just beginning. Players are injured, players are changing teams (ahem, Antonio Brown) and players are being used more or less than we originally thought. Week 1 also showed fantasy owners which teams...

Looking over last week's picks for daily fantasy football (DFS), I had a few misses, but a lot more hits. Many of those misses were injury-related, like my Nick Foles pick. Some of the hits were rather easy like Chris Carson or the Ravens DST. But I was particularly...

As we all predicted, the top five wide receivers in terms of fantasy football in Week 1 were Sammy Watkins, DeSean Jackson, John Ross, Marquise Brown, and DeAndre Hopkins. If history has taught us anything, it's that one of those guys (or at least someone...
