Trying to make those last minute adjustments to your roster? Well, the Thursday night game is soon to be underway and there are a few players of note that you’re probably trying to decide whether they’re worth the start on the short week or if you should just bypass them in favor of some other options you may have. At first glance though, a match-up of the Seahawks and Cardinals doesn’t really sound too appealing, unless of course, you own the Seattle defense, but who knows? Maybe there’s a hidden gem or two in there you might like.
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.
It's Week 4 of the NFL season meaning we've got data to review in order to help us to make more informed decisions in fantasy football. That doesn't mean there is ever unanimity if you ask the experts, and it doesn't mean that the numbers always lead to the correct answer. However history matters a bit, as does current levels of production, usage, matchups etc. This week we'll share our thoughts on some of the better Week 4 matchups out there as you try to continue building upon what was hopefully a solid start to the football season for your fantasy club (who are we kidding, there's no way anyone reading this has only one fantasy football team).
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.
What happened in Week 3 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 are some of the best and brightest of Week 3 as well as those that failed to live up to expectations. There were plenty of guys who crapped out and cost fantasy owners big time.
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.
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.
