Torn apart: So last night, I’m sitting at home watching the Panthers take on the Saints. Jonathan Stewart takes a play near the sidelines and gets hit low as he goes out of bounds. I swear to you on my soul that my very first thought was “Oh, no … for a guy who has suffered a ridiculous amount of foot injuries, that hit looked like a dangerous one to take. I hope he’s OK.” Nope. Wrong. Stewart limped off the field, and it turns out he has a torn MCL in his right knee. I feel badly for Stewart owners who took a chance on him, but I wouldn’t trust this guy to order a pizza without picking up […]

» The list of players who are producing long after everyone has given up on them can now add Hakeem Nicks. The mostly-disappointing wideout had 135 receiving yards in the loss today. No other Giant had more than 42 (the equally-disappointing Victor Cruz). » No matter the matchup, it’s hard to count out Frank Gore. He didn’t score a touchdown, but the veteran finished with 110 yards — including a big 51-yard run late in the ballgame. » Speaking of players having nice late-season totals, Justin Hunter had another big day. He’s a name to keep an eye on as you start thinking about next season. Although a Week 16 matchup against the Jags could make him an interesting prospect — if you’re fortunate enough […]

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 […]
