Oh Week 7, you vex me. The Bye weeks are manageable for one more week before all hell breaks loose in Weeks 8 & 9 when six teams are out of action each week, but every week is important in the push for the fantasy football playoffs. That means we've got one more week of fairly normal plays since most clubs are still active. However, which guys have the best matchups? Which guys are in line for touch matchups this week? Oh hell, we'll focus more on the guys you should feel good about having in your lineup this week when we talk Week 7 matchups.
What happened in Week 2 of the NFL season? That's what we'll discuss in this article. We won't touch on Thursday Night Football in this piece. That's so yesterday. We also won't touch on Sunday Night Football because we wanted to get this info out to you as soon as we could and that meant we posted this before the game was complete. What we will touch on is some of the best and brightest of Week 2, those that failed to live up to expectations, and all those running backs that seem to have picked up an injury in the NFL's second week.
Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Week 1 of the NFL regular season and the first Sunday of your 2013 fantasy season! Every week, I’ll be doing game capsules, much like I did the other day for the Denver/Baltimore game. But due to scheduling conflicts caused by the holiday weekend earlier in the week, there is little or no time for that to be done here. So instead, I’m just going to go game by game and throw you a relevant fantasy thought or two that may be helpful to you for this week.
While we always spend so much time suggesting to you that you grab this particular wide receiver or that particular running back, we often forget to tell you which situations or players to avoid. It might seem like basic fantasy common sense, but when you’re sifting through your waiver wire here in the early goings of the season, desperately looking for some unfound gem in a quarry filled with lumps of coal, even the slightest glimmer of hope can become exaggerated to the point where you’re tempted to drop someone from your roster to take a chance. So for today, rather than hype someone who may not even deserve a look, let alone a roster spot, we’re going to take a bit harsher a point of view and go over those situations around the NFL that you’re going to want to avoid this year.
After months of prep work, endless back and forth discussions about when to take a quarterback and which position to roster in Rounds 3 and 4 of a draft, it's time to start playing some games. Finally. With that we now have to switch our attention to chososing our starting lineups so now is when the real pressure begins. Who should you be playing in Week 1? Here are some thoughts based on matchups, numbers and some fun facts.
