This week, the Social (Fantasy) Network gets the playoffs started with a little good-natured trash talking.
In today’s Three and Out: Percy Harvin’s out again, Case Keenum is back in and Carson Palmer is uncertain.
We’ve heard this before: Water is wet. The sky is blue. And Darren McFadden missed Wednesday’s practice with an ankle injury, this one supposedly having come against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving if head coach Dennis Allen is to believed. Oakland’s other RB Rashad Jennings actually did return to practice Wednesday after picking up a concussion on Thanksgiving. On one hand, you feel bad for McFadden since he seems to be cursed. But he’s been mostly useless for his owners throughout his career since he is incapable of staying on the field. Jennings is Oakland’s go-to guy for the rest of this season … and perhaps beyond. He’s got a nice matchup this week against a Jets defense that spends a […]
In today’s Three and Out: Aaron Rodgers still isn’t back, Percy Harvin remains uncertain while Le’Veon Bell is improving.
Last resort: The Browns lost in embarrassing fashion at home to the Jaguars in Week 13. And while Brandon Weeden made some costly errors, he wasn’t really the main reason they lost this time. Josh Gordon gave Weeden a big assist in his big day, but now Weeden is under concussion protocol, which means it’s very possible the team will start newly acquired QB Alex Tanney, who is better known for his entertaining trick shot mastery than any NFL success. Tanney is the only healthy QB on Cleveland’s roster right now, so if you happen to have any experience playing QB and aren’t predisposed this Sunday. you might want to send your résumé down to the folks in Berea, OH. Anyhow, […]
Josh Gordon broke a ton of NFL records while almost single-handedly winning his owners their fantasy matchups in Week 13. That earns him his second consecutive KABOOM! award.
» Michael Crabtree had one big catch in Sunday’s game, but his speed was lacking. It’s hard to think he’s going to be a major fantasy factor in your league’s postseason. » It was all set up for Andy Dalton to have a great day against a shaky Chargers secondary. And he gave you 10.50 points. That was the best matchup he has for the next few weeks, it’s time to move on from Red. » Eric Decker is feast-or-famine. Not surprisingly, he’s eating well just a few days after Thanksgiving. » Well hello there, Roddy White. It sure would’ve been nice to see a little more of this throughout the season. » Well hello there, C.J. Spiller. It sure would’ve been nice to see a […]
In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we ask which fantasy stars people are most thankful for.

I’m a QB, damn it!: So, Joe Flacco is less than thrilled about lining up in the wildcat formation. He couldn’t even be bothered to block on one of the plays, which makes me wonder how long it’ll take before some angry defensive back absolutely levels Flacco the next time the Ravens deceide to run a play out of the wildcat. Anyhow, Flacco’s already low fantasy value will get even lower if Tyrod Taylor starts getting a handful of reps each week. Chances are you aren’t starting Flacco in your league anyway, but if you are, I’d love to know why. Weeden likely starting Week 13: Jason Campbell sustained a concussion in Cleveland’s Week 12 home loss to the Steelers, […]
Josh Gordon torched the PIttsburgh Steelers’ secondary for 237 receiving yards and a touchdown, earning the Week 12 KABOOM! award in the process.
Tiquan Underwood torched the Detroit Lions secondary for 108 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, those points torched the waiver wire and not any (or at least, many) starting lineups.

» Kendall Wright re-asserted himself as Tennessee’s go-to receiver, but Justin Hunter may have put his name into the conversation as a sleeper option at WR going forward. » It’s official, there is a running back committee in Arizona. Rashard Mendenhall had 13 carries. Andre Ellington had 10. The difference was Mendenhall’s touchdown. But those things could change from week-to-week. » Two straight weeks Michael Floyd has topped 100 receiving yards. And just when you think it’s time to rush him into your lineup, the San Francisco 49ers are waiting. » If fantasy football allowed for halftime substitutions, Andrew Luck and the Colts would be prime candidates to sit out the first half. They’ve essentially done that over the past few weeks and it’s happening again this week versus the […]
A large part of what makes fantasy football fun is the ability to make trades. Everyone thinks they have the ability to be a great general manager, so what better way than to move pieces around to try and compile the best roster? Of course not every trade offer is even … or at least what most of us would call even. If you ever want an interesting look at what some people consider “fair market value”, just look at some of the trade proposals that get offered in your fantasy league. With that in mind, the Social (Fantasy) Network boots up this week and asks: What’s the worst trade deal you’ve been offered? It seems bad trade offers fall […]
