Sunday's difference makers

Saturday, September 10, 2011, 3:11 PM
On Thursday I gave you some bargains and busts this weekend, mainly geared towards FanDuel leagues. Yesterday, I had some advice on who to start and who to sit. However, the one thing that can guarantee you a win is having a "difference maker" on your roster. By that, I mean a guy who will have a... Read more

Start or Sit: Week 1

Friday, September 9, 2011, 4:30 PM
Earlier, I introduced you to the Fantasy Football Diary, but now it's time to get down to business. Sunday is rapidly approaching, and no matter how confident you are in your drafting abilities, you will inevitably face a tough coaching decision right out of the gate. Mainly because there is so much... Read more

Fantasy Football Diary: Week 1

Friday, September 9, 2011, 10:34 AM
Last night marked the return of meaningful NFL football with a stellar, down-to-the-wire opener between the Packers and Saints. Not only was this an excellent game, but it also displayed the fantasy excellence of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. Both quarterback threw for three touchdowns, zero interceptions... Read more

Setting your Week 1 lineup

Thursday, September 8, 2011, 3:57 PM
Tonight marks the return of real NFL football, as well as fantasy football. Although there is only one game being played tonight, there are a ton of impact fantasy players involved. As I wrote about a week or so ago, the Saints and Packers were the two teams with the most players selected in both... Read more

Does this mean the summer's over?

Monday, September 5, 2011, 11:02 PM
As I sit here watching my beloved 'Canes take on Maryland (a school I nearly attended), I can't help but be upset at the fact that summer is all but over. While that means the end of sitting on the beach, the end of the Phillies, and the end of wearing white, it also means the beginning of football... Read more

RB or QB: Who should you draft first?

Saturday, September 3, 2011, 2:16 PM
I have been obsessing over the fact the Tom Brady went second in my one league and 24th in the other. Frank Gore went 11th in one and 26th in the other. Tony Romo went 37th in one and 54th in the other. And how about Knowshon Moreno? He went 24th in one...61st (!!!) in the other. But nothing stood... Read more

Behind the Numbers (Draft Edition)

Thursday, September 1, 2011, 3:00 PM
Yesterday, I posted on my Fantasy Island Football League draft, which took place on Tuesday night. Today, I decided to take a look at some of the numbers behind the numbers of my two fantasy drafts this week. One league has 14 teams and the other has 12, so that will skew the results slightly, but... Read more

FIFL Draft Results: Peterson No. 1

Wednesday, August 31, 2011, 1:44 PM
Before I get into today's post, let me get some business out of the way first: - Don't forget to sign up for next week's free game on FanDuel. There is $300 in guaranteed prize money, plus a bonus if you can beat my score. And like I said, it's FREE to join. - You can also sign up for a chance to... Read more

Raul Ibanez ready to get hot?

Monday, August 22, 2011, 12:23 PM
Our friends over at Crashburn Alley put together a great chart showing Raul Ibanez's OPS month-by-month for the last two season. For a guy who has been as inconsistent has Ibanez, the numbers are shockingly consistent. Take a look: A lot of you may be looking for a player to help you make that... Read more
