Social (Fantasy) Network: Giving thanks

In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we ask which fantasy stars people are most thankful for.

Michael Crabtree ready to go in Week 13

In today’s Three and Out: Michael Crabtree and Matt Forte are in … Lance Dunbar is out.

Michael Crabtree expected to play Sunday

In today’s Three and Out: Michael Crabtree is expected back for the 49ers; Darren McFadden could see some time on Thanksgiving for the Raiders.

Flacco not down with Wildcat, Browns get bad QB news

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, […]

Week 12 KABOOM! goes to Josh Gordon

Josh Gordon torched the PIttsburgh Steelers’ secondary for 237 receiving yards and a touchdown, earning the Week 12 KABOOM! award in the process.

That Helps No One! Week 12: Tiquan Underwood

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.

Week 12 fantasy feedback

» 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 […]

Social (Fantasy) Network: Tricks of the trade

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 […]

Adrian Peterson questionable, expects to play Sunday

In today’s Three and Out: Adrian Peterson says he’ll play in Week 12, but he might not be a must-start for some fantasy owners.

Raiders, Vikings make Week 12 QB decisions

Stay put, Matt: When the Raiders said they weren’t committed to Terrelle Pryor, they weren’t kidding. Pryor has been dealing with knee issues, but he’s practicing again as of today … except it’s with the second unit. Matt McGloin has been named Oakland’s starter against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie ambushed the Texans by throwing three scores and no picks. I’ve said this before and will say it again: be extremely cautious about buying in on QBs who have great initial success (ie beginner’s luck). Take Case Keenum as one of many examples — another guy who hit the ground running, set off a fantasy waiver wire stampede, then tapered off as soon as defensive coordinators had some film they could […]

Report: Wes Welker evaluated for concussion

In today’s Three and Out: Wes Welker was reportedly evaluated for a concussion during Sunday night’s win over Kansas City.

Texans stick with Keenum, Peterson ailing

  Case not closed: So, the Texans didn’t need much time to declare Case Keenum will start in Week 12 against the Jaguars. “I’ve got total confidence in him,” said coach Gary Kubiak. Except most of his fantasy owners don’t anymore after the inexplicably poor performance against a Raiders secondary that doesn’t exactly terrify opposing quarterbacks. If you own Keenum, I’m sorry. I really don’t know what to tell you, other than the Jags defense presents a good opportunity for him to get back on track. Nonetheless, keep your other options as open as possible. I wouldn’t start Keenum this week unless I had absolutely zero alternatives. Have a seat, Jay: The Bears have already ruled out Jay Cutler (ankle, […]

That Helps No One for Week 11: Matt McGloin

Matt McGloin started his first NFL game for the Oakland Raiders and quickly earned his first That Helps No One award. Read on to learn why.

Week 11 KABOOM!: Bobby Rainey

Bobby Rainey has one career start, and one KABOOM! award. Both came in Week 11. Read on for more about his big day.

Week 11 fantasy feedback

» Apparently all Ryan Mathews needed was for everyone to stop believing in him. He posted another 100-yard rushing game. » Eli Manning has a TD pass today. It was to (you probably guessed) Rueben Randle. Eli’s last six touchdown tosses have gone to Randle. In other news, Victor Cruz has been productive with more than 100 receiving yards. » You can officially put Matt Ryan on your bench and leave him there. » Today made up for all of those weeks when Antonio Brown had good yardage totals but never scored a touchdown. Sort of. » Just when we think Riley Cooper is worthy of being in your lineup, he puts up just three catches for 37 yards. But DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy came up with nice receiving numbers. » Robert […]
