The advice is always the same every year – get your running backs first. The position is thin, there are too many committee situations and when it comes to fantasy football, he who touches the ball the most stands the best chance to score the most points. Top-flight running backs are the key to your success. But while the advice is still solid, this year seems to be more of a nightmare with regard to the position. Well, more of a nightmare than usual, it seems.
You’ve been reading the latest news, checking in with all the strategy articles and have obviously gone through as many start/sit columns you can find. But the more information you have, the better off you are and some of the most useful advice pieces are the ones that have the most updated injury information and expected team game plans. So with that, here are some of my last-minute thoughts with regard to the NFL Week 6 match-ups and how they should be affecting your fantasy football lineup. Remember, we’re not here to tell you that you should start Drew Brees or Marshawn Lynch, so unless the match-up is so ridiculously unfavorable, we’ll just assume that you are wisely keeping your studs in your active lineup. We’re looking at the role players here.
Week 4 is the end of the beginning of the 2013 Fantasy Football Season. At this point in the season we can fairly sit back and judge what we have seen thus far and not call it an overreaction. This week pretty much stayed true to for in that we had a number of significant injuries to deal with, more big performances from guys like Adrian Peterson & Jordan Cameron and more failures from the likes of C.J. Spiller & Roddy White. Week 4 also saw more historic performances from Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense on the good side and from Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars on the miserable side. Let’s relive all of the highs and lows from Week 4 with a full recap of all 15 Sunday Games.
Week 3 is going to be remembered more for who didn’t do what rather than who actually showed up this week. There were so many disappointments this week from Marshawn Lynch ruining the greatest of matchups to the entire Giants offense soaking the bed with diarrhea. Then of course it just wouldn’t have been a Sunday of Football without several notable RB’s going down with injuries. While we wait on more news from C.J. Spiller, Daryl Richardson, James Starks and Chris Ivory let’s sit back and review everything that happened in Week 3.
It's already the third week of the NFL season. If you're 2-0 you feel great. If you're 1-1 you feel hopeful. If you're 0-2 your ready to blow your entire team up (I know some of you are staying the course even if the first two weeks didn't turn out well, but far more of you are cursing the players on your team and giving them the evil eye). Regardless of the spot you are in, here are some thoughts on players heading into Week 3. Which guys should you trust to as starters this week to keep the good times rolling or to turn around a rough start? Here are some thoughts.
