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.
Every year during the preseason, we preach the same old thing when it comes to quarterbacks – there’s no need to rush your pick as it’s the deepest position out there**. With so much talent out there, you can afford to wait until at least the fifth round and you’ll still find yourself some top quality. But is that the case this season? The strategy works if you’re using those top picks on high-scoring, elite running backs and splashing in a couple of high-end wide receivers and/or tight ends, but if those picks aren’t putting up the points you were expecting, then you probably find yourself struggling here through the first five weeks of the fantasy football season without an elite-level quarterback.
Week 5 started out slowly and heading into the afternoon games the popular sentiments from around the industry was that this was a “down” week. Then the Broncos and the Cowboys took to the field to bless us with 99 points and an unbelievable 1039 yards of total offense. Also, for the first time since week 1 we had three games yet to be played once the Broncos and Cowboys game ended. So, what was a slow week has turned out to be another week filled with production. Let’s take a spin through all twelve games played this Sunday and find out how our players performed.

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.
Well now that was quite the opening week for the NFL now, wasn’t it? We saw some high-powered offenses, some tough defensive plays, and plenty of fantasy scoring to go around. Surprisingly, the number of injuries was held to a minimum, yet the waiver wire will be a hot-bed of action this week as we also saw a few names emerge from the shadows to take center stage. With so much to talk about, let’s just get started right away with a collection of notes from around the league and the potential fantasy fallout that you as an owner may need to address.
Week 1 of the NFL season is in the books. There were letdowns everywhere but we're not going to focus on that in this article. Instead, we'll spend our time looking at the players who excelled in Week 1 who might be on your waiver-wire. If these fellas are on waivers should you add them? Furthermore, if you do have an interest in adding them what should you pay to attain their services? Read on to find out.
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.
