Social (Fantasy) Network: You’re the man

In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we ask who fantasy owners are most counting on to help them make it to the playoffs.

Bucs want to get Vincent Jackson more catches

In today’s Three and Out: Vincent Jackson could see more WR targets this week; Could you say the same for C.J. Spiller? Don’t count on it.

Who’s dealing with injuries entering Week 11?

Sit Stevie: According to a report on the official Bills team site, coach Doug Marrone “(doesn’t) feel good” about Stevie Johnson’s chances of seeing the field in Week 11. Johnson picked up a groin injury last week against the Steelers, but he hasn’t been a consistent fantasy threat when he’s healthy. Stevie seems to have one good week every so often, then lets his owners down more often than not. If you had been banking on him starting this week, you may want to jump on the waiver wire and make other plans. Broken Law: Remember when going into the season, the consensus was BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovanni Bernard would split carries until a winner emerged? Bernard went on to […]

Golden Tate dishes on his love of fantasy football

  How many NFL players are hard core fantasy players themselves? It’s hard to say for sure, but Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is one of them. Tate was kind enough to stop in and join Michael Fabiano from NFL Fantasy Live to talk about a number of different topics. We have yet to see Percy Harvin play in a Seahawks uniform, and that could change in Week 11. Tate gives his thoughts on what kind of impact Harvin’s presence will make on the offense. Tate also sheds some light on how Russell Wilson helps the Seahawks offense get in sync before gameday. Finally, who else populates Golden Tate’s fantasy team? Are any other Seahawks on his roster? Where […]

A Football Life: Cris Carter’s fantasy evolution

It was once said that all Cris Carter did was catch touchdowns. That would have been good enough to make him a fantasy star — except he did so much more.

Mike James (ankle) out indefinitely

In today’s Three and Out: Mike James is hurting; Terrelle Pryor is hurting worse than first thought … and is Ray Rice hurting?

A closer look at Week 11 waiver targets

Fantasy playoffs are right around the corner — can you believe it? Now may be the most critical time of the fantasy to make sure you’re maximizing the talent on your roster. The Fantasy Live crew takes a look at their picks for some of the top waiver wire pickups in Week 11. Michael Fabiano likes Andre Brown’s potential — a lot. Who wouldn’t after such a dominant performance against the Raiders? However, one major concern exists for Brown owners the rest of the season. What is it? Fabs also says he likes what Packers WR Jarrett Boykin can bring to the table, regardless of who the Packers have under center. But Jarrett Boykin’s fantasy value is higher in certain […]

Should you rush to claim Ingram?

Easy on Ingram: I’m taking Mark Ingram’s Week 10 performance with a giant grain of salt since the Cowboys defense seemingly took an early flight out of the Big Easy sometime in the middle of the second quarter (apparently, I was unaware it was official Cowboys team policy that Sean Lee is the only player on this unit permitted to make a tackle). But Ingram had 14 carries for a career-high 145 yards and added a touchdown in Sunday night’s 49-17 thrashing of Dallas. I think this is more likely to be a one-off performance since it was completely out of the blue. Not to mention, check out the run defenses awaiting the Saints over the next month: they host […]

The Week 10 KABOOM! That Helps No One: Tavon Austin

Tavon Austin had a KABOOM!-worthy day in the ST. Louis Rams upset win over the Indianapolis Colts, but he also earned the That Helps No One award as he was started in approximately zero fantasy leagues.

Week 10 fantasy feedback

» Case Keenum might not be winning real games, but he’s helping fantasy owners. Keenum came up just shy of 20 points this week and faces the Raiders and Jaguars (twice) over the next four weeks. » And on a day when the passing game wasn’t working, it seems strange that Frank Gore would only have 16 carries — especially when he averaged more than 5 yards per carry. » Once again, the absence of Vernon Davis impacts the production of Colin Kaepernick. The QB wasn’t able to run against the Panthers and had no one to throw the football to consistently. Credit Carolina for making things tough with a fierce pass rush, but San Francisco’s glaring lack of weapons once Davis left the […]

Social (Fantasy) Network: Bend the rules

In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we want to know which rules you’d like to see changed.

Doug Martin placed on injured reserve

Doug Martin has been placed on injured reserve, placing a disappointing cap on a frustrating fantasy season.

Report: Cowboys fear Bryant’s injury could be serious

In today’s three and Out: The Cowboys fear Dez Bryant’s back injury could be serious; Roddy White says he’ll be back for Atlanta … and Matt Flynn could be back in Green Bay.

Martin hoping to play, Harvin still out

Martin may play again? Bucs head coach Greg Schiano said Doug Martin will return to action this season only if doctors believe he can’t do further damage to his shoulder. Martin will eventually need surgery to repair the torn labrum he suffered in his shoulder, but he is hoping to play through the pain for the rest of this season and delay the surger until the offseason. However, I still think it’s unlikely Martin returns until 2014. The Bucs are still searching for their first win of the season, and not much can be gained by risking further injury to the centerpiece of their offense going forward. If you own Martin, don’t hesitate to dump him if a more productive […]

Packers seeking Aaron Rodgers replacement?

In today’s Three and Out: The Packers could be searching for a QB to replace Aaron Rodgers and Ben Tate plans to play Week 10.
