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 […]
There are few things as predictably anti-climactic in all of major pro sports as the NFL trading deadline. Every season, we hear plenty of names of guys who could change addresses and rarely does it ever happen. It re-defines the idea of all smoke and no fire. Thankfully, the fantasy trade market isn’t nearly as uneventful. But the deadline to make fantasy deals is coming soon, and with teams jockeying for postseason position, the Social (Fantasy) Network wants to take a peek inside your war rooms. So we asked question: Who are you targeting before the fantasy trade deadline? Apparently some of you are aiming high. Just be prepared to pay through the nose. Certainly in this new football world […]

Lynch dealing with knee issue: Marshawn Lynch has reportedly been dealing with a knee issue and didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice. That might explain why he looked so pathetic against the Rams on Monday after rushing for 100 yards or more in his previous three straight versus St. Louis. The bad news for Lynch owners this week is the Bucs visit town, which means the Seahawks could very well limit his workload again since they won’t need a big effort from him to win. If you own Lynch, I’d seriously consider looking at your other options as you keep a close eye on his status through the weekend. MIN = MIA: It’s nothing short of amazing that the Vikings scored […]

Fantasy football winners are experts at playing the matchup game. Michael Fabiano and Jason Smith examine the quarterbacks who have the toughest remaining schedules for the second half of the season. Andrew Luck tops the list. Does that mean you should look to limit him to spot starts — or maybe even bench him altogether? Michael Fabiano takes a closer look. Tom Brady owners have suffered through some shockingly poor performances in recent weeks, and they will be less than thrilled to learn the disappointing QB finds himself ranked in the top 10 of this list. Is it time to dump him altogether? Can Colin Kaepernick’s style of play help him overcome the tough obstacles that lay ahead? Watch and […]
The NFL trading deadline may have come and gone with a whimper, but action remains fast and furious in fantasy leagues everywhere. So NFL Fantasy LIVE decided to ask America what players it would be willing to deal for. And we could just tell you the results, but what’s the fun in that? Instead … we’re playing the feud! Team Sitcom, better known as Mike (Fabiano) and Molly (Qerim) challenged Adam Rank and Akbar Gbajabiamilia, aka Team Follically Challenged. The first question was “Who would you trade for Andy Dalton?” Turns out the most popular answer was Tom Brady — something that would have been unthinkable as recently as September. However, the Red Rocket has been hot in recent weeks while Brady has […]
In today’s Three and Out: Nick Foles is back at practice for the Eagles; Zac Stacy appears to have avoided a high-ankle sprain.

With Halloween just a few days away, our expert panel decided to get together and see which players they are hoping to either receive or give away to other trick or traders. Michael Fabiano gives some insight into why he thinks now is the best time to trade away Fred Jackson. Adam Rank is selling if you’re looking to take Stevan Ridley off his hands. Jason Smith loves Knowshon Moreno’s production, but if history is a reliable indicator, that could change very quickly. And why would Akbar Gbaja-Biamila be looking to deal Wes Welker quickly? Check out the above link to find out. Our fantasy crew isn’t only in a giving mode, though. Adam Rank has his eye on a […]
