Texans sticking with Schaub

Kubiak sticking with Schaub: When asked about Matt Schaub’s future as Houston’s starter, here’s what head coach Gary Kubiak had to say: “He’s our quarterback,” the coach told reporters on Monday, “I believe in him. He’s a strong kid, but it’s going to be a tough week.” Translation: I really don’t know. This is similar to a dreaded vote of confidence. Kubiak has also criticized Schaub’s ability to audible as well as his decision making ability. Then he went on to blame himself for putting Schaub in bad situations as a coach. The likelihood of sticking with Schaub beyond this season seems very low, but despite the interceptions, his fantasy numbers haven’t been too bad.  He’s had 298 or more passing […]

Week 4 fantasy feedback

» Looking ahead to Week 5 … MIN, PIT, TB and WAS are all on byes. That takes out a number of quality RBs (Peterson, Bell, Doug Martin and Morris), but won’t be quite so hard on fantasy QB depth charts. Robert Griffin III is the only signal-caller of any real significance that will be missing next week. » Reports of Antonio Gates’ fantasy demise have been greatly exaggerated. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points in each of the past three weeks and gets to face the Raiders next week. Time to upgrade him! » Apparently not everyone can take advantage of Washington’s terrible defense. Thanks for teaching us that valuable lesson, Matt Flynn. » Justin Hunter might not catch a lot of passes. But when he […]

Social (Fantasy) Network: What’s in a name?

In the Social (Fantasy) Network this week, we look at team names and whether it’s ever okay to change them mid-season.

Report: Rob Gronkowski ‘not optimistic’ to play Sunday

In today’s Three and Out: Rob Gronkowski continues to be uncertain for the Patriots; it’s a little more certain that Christian Ponder and Terrelle Pryor won’t play.

Ponder’s time as starter winding down?

Cassel closer to starting?: Lezlie Frazier recently said he hopes Christian Ponder plays on Sunday against the Steelers, but I don’t know how broken up the coaching staff would be if they were forced to go with Matt Cassel. Ponder has more INTs (5) this year than TD passes (2), and he has yet to crack 240 passing yards in a game. In other words, he’s been operating at about a C- level all year long.  If Ponder plays well in London, he’ll be given a moratorium. If not, Cassel will likely start after the bye. Jim Brown endorses Richardson trade: The Browns made a huge trade splash by recently sending Trent Richardson to the Colts, and former NFL great […]

Keep an eye on Terrelle Pryor’s concussion

In today’s Three and Out: Terrelle Pryor’s status for Week 4 is up in the air while Le’Veon Bell could touch down for the Steelers this week.

Monday Nightmare: Even Peyton Manning can’t help

Peyton Manning is probably the most automatic player in fantasy football right now. Probably. I should change that to just automatic. But here’s the thing, if you had him on Monday night, and let’s say you needed 28.86 points, you had to feel pretty good. And if you have Montee Ball to boot, there’s no way you could lose, right?

Put Redskins opponents on auto-start

Redskins set infamous record: The Lions beat the Redskins yesterday, which was incredibly their first win in Washington since about the time World War II was getting underway. Those of us who thought the Lions stood a chance of winning probably guessed it would be a 45-38 shootout type of final score. It really wasn’t. Detroit won 27-20, and the sad part is that was Washington’s best outing of the season. The Redskins have conceded an astounding 1,464 yards to date this season, which sets an NFL record for worst performance in the history of the league in the first three weeks of the season. Good thing Washington has a few first-round picks they can use to help address the holes […]

Week 3 fantasy feedback

Keep up with the latest goings on from Week 3 with our fantasy feedback blog.

Social (Fantasy) Network: Let’s make a deal!

In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, Marcas Grant asks when is the perfect time to make a deal.

Willis McGahee in ‘great shape’, could play Sunday

In today’s Three and Out: Willis McGahee likely will play this week, Le’Veon Bell likely won’t and Ray Rice isn’t totally sure.

Trent Richardson traded to Indianapolis Colts

The Cleveland Browns have traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. Marcas Grant says that does a lot to boost the star rusher’s value.

Can Hoyer lead Browns offense?

Browns to start third-string QB: Jason Campbell is second on Cleveland’s depth chart, but head coach Rob Chudzinski has decided to start Brian Hoyer when the Browns take a trip to Minnesota for Week 3. Browns GM Mike Lombardi seems enamored with Hoyer, but even the most incurable optimists will have a difficult time making a case that Hoyer will be a productive fantasy QB this week. The Vikings don’t even have to stuff the box and dare Hoyer to beat them in the air, because Cleveland’s running game hasn’t been productive either. The Browns have one offensive touchdown heading into Week 3. As poorly as Minnesota’s defense has played, that number may not change much after this week.   […]

Steven Jackson could miss 2-4 weeks

In today’s Three and Out: One more featured running back goes down with Steven Jackson expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

Monday Nightmare: Where did you go A.J. Green?

The common wisdom going into Monday night is that you want to be the challenger. There is nothing worse than trying to enjoy your delicious Slice of New York pizza on a Monday, while you constantly check your phone for updates to see those fractional points add up. It’s worse than being a member of the Texas Rangers right now. (And for the record, I’m kind of enjoying this collapse.)
