Well, I finally broke down and made some trades this week. Although my team has won two straight, I am 3-3 on the season, with the division leader a perfect 6-0. My standard offers are 2-for-1, moving depth for a solid player and a throwaway. This strategy has always worked for me and suggest you give it a try. A pair of team's on bye this week (New Orleans and Oakland) with two more (Atlanta and Miami) returning after getting a week off. Prime Time action this week has Seattle and Arizona on Thursday night, Denver and Indianapolis on Sunday night and Minnesota taking on the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
Can you believe it's already week five in the 2013 NFL season? Fantasy nation gets Carolina and Green Bay players back this week from bye and they are good to go for the remainder of the season. Four teams have week five off, Tampa Bay, Minnesota, PIttsburgh and Washington. From that group, Vincent Jackson, Antonio Brown and Pierre Garcon are the only significant losses at wide receiver. Who had a breakout performance in week four? and who cost your team a win? Time to take a look in this week's report.
Welcome to week three and the first of nine straight bye weeks. We wade into things with only Green Bay and Carolina off, but the impact will certainly be felt. Brandon LaFell owners are going to have to wait a week to see if he can do it again, while the trio of Packers, Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and James Jones will certainly be missed. Do we have a changing of the guard at wide receiver in the NFL? Certainly some new names like Josh Gordon and Cecil Shorts appear poised to assume prominent fantasy roles. This week's Thursday night action features an NFC West matchup of St.Louis and San Francisco on the NFL Network.
As we reach the mid-way point of the NFL season, we really begin to see trends developing. The occasional really good or bad week don’t skew the season averages like they do early on There is definitely more movement among wide receivers (as opposed to running backs/tight ends) simply due to the larger raw numbers of players. Many teams have had their bye weeks, with all teams done following week 11. The raw totals are a tad higher for those who have yet to have their bye week: Carolina, Detroit, Jacksonville and Minnesota are off this week; Houston, Indianapolis, New Orleans and Pittsburgh are on bye during week 11. We have three sets of numbers for you. We share those that are exceeding the norm, those that didn’t receive the normal “looks” they have become accustomed to and the season aggregate totals.
