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.

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

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 […]
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 […]
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.
» 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 […]
In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we want to know which rules you’d like to see changed.
Doug Martin has been placed on injured reserve, placing a disappointing cap on a frustrating fantasy season.
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 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 […]

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.
Foles joins elite company: So, check this out and tell me how many of you thought you’d be saying this about Nick Foles just 48 hours ago: he joined Hall-of-Famers Sid Luckman, George Blanda and Y. A. Tittle, very likely future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning, Joe Kapp and Adrian Burk as the seventh player in NFL history to throw seven TD passes in one game. Know how many TD passes Foles had in his career before yesterday? Just 12 — far and away the lowest by any of those QBs prior to their respective seven-TD-pass games. And here’s what really irked me yesterday: Foles was the first of those seven QBs to throw all seven of his touchdown passes within the game’s […]
Nick Foles made history in Oakland as the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed the Oakland Raiders. In the process, Foles earned the Week 9 KABOOM! award. See just how big of a day Foles had here.
The latest edition of Shanahanigans, Darrel Scott, wins the Week 9 “That Helps No One” award.
» Death, taxes and Darren McFadden suffering an injury. Except this week the handcuff to have wasn’t Marcel Reece, it was Rashad Jennings. With the Giants on tap, it’s time to grab Jennings off the waiver wire. » Le’Veon Bell is putting together another nice day. He’s over 100 scrimmage yards with a mixture of runs and receptions. It reinforces the value of backs who serve multiple functions. » There were 44 years between quarterbacks throwing seven TD passes in a game. Now we’ve gone eight weeks. No one … and I mean no one saw Nick Foles coming today. And it looks like as long as Foles is the QB, Riley Cooper is his No. 1 target. » The Seahawks defense hasn’t looked quite so formidable […]
