Our own Michael Fabiano spent a few minutes chatting with Kurt warner about a variety of topics. Naturally, the first question was about — what else? — fantasy football. Warner sheds some light on why he has become more of a fan of the hobby in recent years, and what aspect of the game annoys him the most. Warner also offered his opinion on why he expects Le’Veon Bell to start getting more touches, why he opted for picking up Bell over Zac Stacy and what he has to do to finally catch Tony Romo on a good week. Finally, the two discussed Larry Fitzgerald‘s role and whether he can turn things around to become elite again? Yes, Fitzgerald has been […]

Browns make QB change: I called this one a couple of days ago. Rob Chudzinski has apparently had enough of Brandon Weeden and decided to go with Jason Campbell at QB this week (and maybe even for the rest of the season). This has the potential to get very ugly since Campbell didn’t look much different than Weeden during his mop-up stint against the Ravens earlier this year. But with a full week of reps with the first-team offense? Hey, if Case Keenum can post a more than respectable outing, surely an eight-year veteran can at least match that. Campbell might get a couple TDs if Josh Gordon can take off and make something happen on his own. Spot-starting Campbell […]

In today’s Three and Out: Michael Vick reportedly will start in Week 8; Mike James is the next man up in the Bucs’ backfield.

Cutler among those injured in Week 7: What a rough week for a number of fantasy staples, if not superstars. Sam Bradford and Reggie Wayne both had torn ACLs. Brian Cushing had disgusting and unimaginable injuries to his knee. Jermichael Finley suffered a concussion and was in ICU through most of Monday. Doug Martin may or may not be out for the year depending on whether you believe Greg Schiano. And as long as we’re at it, let’s just add Jay Cutler to the list. Bears head coach Marc Trestman told reporterson Monday that Cutler will miss “a minimum” of four weeks with a torn groin muscle and will be “week to week” after that point. Trestman said Cutler told him he […]

Reggie Wayne has played at an elite level since coming into the league as a rookie. A brief rundown of his résumé highlights: he helped the Colts win a Super Bowl, he made the Pro Bowl six times, he was an All-Pro three times, he led the NFL in receiving yards in 2007, and he’s also the Miami Hurricanes’ career receptions leader with 173. Pretty impressive feat since more than a few good NFL WRs spent their college days at the U. But his 2013 season came to a premature end as he suffered a torn ACL during Week 7 against the Broncos. Wayne haden’t posted enormous fantasy stats this season like he did in the past, but he has […]

As if the 0-6 Buccaneers needed any more bad news, they have just received some of the worst kind on Monday morning. RB Doug Martin reportedly has a torn labrum and could miss the rest of the 2013 season, although Bucs coach Greg Schiano said it may not be that bad. Schiano said it would be a “stretch” for Martin to play Week 8, although I have a hard time believing we’ll see Martin on the field again this year. It’s not that he was such a productive force for the Bucs in 2013. The problem is his presence on the field at least kept defenses somewhat honest. Martin was a disappointment from a fantasy perspective — he rushed for […]
Posted: October 20th, 2013 | Marcas Grant | Tags: Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers
There are plenty of things you can learn about NFL Sundays from NFL Gameday Morning. But where else can you learn that former NFL star Brett Favre has Aaron Rodgers as his fantasy quarterback. The future Hall of Famer admitted to Rich Eisen and company that he has been rolling with the Packers star for his fantasy squad this season, saying “he’s been good”. Although judging from Favre’s account of Rodgers’ scoring (45 points in a week?), he’s not using NFL.com’s standard scoring system. Nonetheless, it’s always fun to know that some of the greats are staying in the game even when they’re not staying in the game. And hey, it’s good to see the former Packers rivals have made up for […]

» Case Keenum acquitted himself fairly well today in Kansas City. But injuries to Arian Foster and Duane Brown are reasons for concern going forward. Fortunately, the Texans have a bye next week. » It’s been feast or famine for Anquan Boldin owners this season. They ate fairly well today. » It was refreshing to see Le’Veon Bell produce against a Ravens defense that has been improving steadily since Week 1. The Steelers have found their primary RB, which is equally good news for fantasy owners. » After staying away from Ray Rice in recent weeks, it seemed a near certainty that the Ravens would feature him against a Steelers defense that’s struggled against the run. He only has 12 carries for 38 yards. It’s starting […]

In today’s Three and Out: Gronk’s back … finally! Jake Locker could be back for Week 7 and Percy Harvin might return in Week 8.

Keenum gets Week 7 start: Well, the Matt Schaub era seems like it’s coming to an end, which means its time for me to go QB shopping. Case Keenum finally gets his first taste of NFL action after playing college ball in as pass-happy of an offense as you’ll find. The good news is he can make all the throws that will be asked of him since he probably attempted all of them under Kevin Sumlin. The bad news? His first start comes against the Chiefs on the road. No big deal … only the most intimidating and productive defense in the league. Go get’em, kid! This would be like finding out that your son’s first little league at-bat will […]

Can we trust Newton? Remember when Cam Newton burst onto the scene in 2011 and topped 400 passing yards in each of his first two starts as a rookie? “Wow, let the good times roll!” thought his owners. Then he went on to post either mediocre or disappointing weeks until … well, pretty much now. He threw for 308 yards and no TDs against the Cardinals a couple weeks ago, then threw for 242 yards and three TDs yesterday. Hmm. We’ve seen these outbursts from Cam in the past, but is it finally time to start him on a weekly basis? A lot depends on what you’re expecting from him on a weekly basis, but if you’re going by history, the […]

» That big game by Larry Fitzgerald certainly came out of nowhere. But let’s not overlook that 13.50 of his 16.10 points came on one play. Hard to count on that type of thing happening every week. Even less likely it happens against Seattle next Thursday night. » There are two legitimate fantasy options in the 49ers offense – Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. Everything else is a crapshoot. Good luck next week against the Titans. » Jimmy Graham getting shut out is going to hurt a ton of fantasy owners this week. Graham leaving the game with an injury could hurt even more. The good news is the Saints have a bye next week for their star TE to get healthy. » It […]
