We’re playing the (Fantasy) Feud!

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 […]

Monday Nightmare: Where did you go A.J. Green?

The common wisdom going into Monday night is that you want to be the challenger. There is nothing worse than trying to enjoy your delicious Slice of New York pizza on a Monday, while you constantly check your phone for updates to see those fractional points add up. It’s worse than being a member of the Texas Rangers right now. (And for the record, I’m kind of enjoying this collapse.)

Darren McFadden in Round 1?!? Welcome to Fantasy Draft Week!

Fantasy Draft Week opens with a shocker. Three wide receivers and Darren McFadden all go in the first round?!? Wow.

Marvin Lewis says A.J. Green is ‘fine’

In today’s Three and Out: A.J. Green’s scare is nothing to worry about and will Tim Tebow be the source of more Belitricks?

NFL fantasy: Aaron Hernandez undergoes shoulder surgery

In today’s Three and Out: Aaron Hernandez had surgery; Demaryius Thomas looks for more one-on-one and A.J. Green just wants to get better.

Fantasy Post Mortem: Airing of Grievances

If you fine folks have followed along, you know I received a Festivus miracle last week when the Tennessee Titans defense scored 18 points (thank you, Mark Sanchez) to secure the win against Matt “Money” Smith. I ultimately fell short in that league (more on those circumstances in a moment). I went 2-2 on Championship Weekend, as I again took out “Money” in our NFL.com Experts League. So I’m stuck in kind of limbo, fantasy purgatory similar to the finale of “Lost.” But two championships is pretty cool. And to fight off my NFL Fantasy Live peers for the second time in three seasons is pretty cool, too. Moving on, it should be noted so many fantasy football championships were […]

Fantasy football: A.J. Green is a top TNF play

Will Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green rebound after his sub-par performance last week?

Fantasy Post Mortem: What if RG3 doesn’t play?

For the majority of the season, I have admonished fantasy enthusiasts for having too many good quarterbacks. Trade one! I often decried. They can’t score fantasy points for you from the bench.

The expression I search for right now is “hoist on my own petard.”

NFL week 14 Horoscopes: J.J. Watt key to slowing Tom Brady

As the NFL regular season comes to a close, we looked to the stars to see what was on the horizon for every NFL team. Here are your Week 14 NFL Horoscopes:

J.J. Watt and others taking initiative

A.C. Slater, CM Punk, and M. Night Shyamalan.  Famous figures known by their mysterious initials.  The NFL has had a plethora of players known by singular letters from Y.A. Tittle to T. J. Houshmandzadeh. In week 12, four of the initially inspired stamped their imprint on the field of play with an OMG-worthy performance.  Here are our top four performances and the real names of the performers.  By the way, the names of the three listed above are Albert Christopher, Phillip Jack Brooks and Manoj.  ————————————————————————————————————————————– C.J. Spiller Real Name: Clifford Jr. Week 12 Performance: Rushed for 107 yards on 14 carries. ————————————————————————————————————————————– T.Y. Hilton Real Name – Eugene Week 12 Performance:  75-yard punt return for touchdown and 8-yard touchdown pass. ————————————————————————————————————————————– […]

Fantasy Postmortem: Of course Reggie Bush scores

One of the biggest fears as a fantasy enthusiast, other than having to start Mark Sanchez, is for one of your guys to have a huge day … after you’ve long given up on him.

Unexpected (and expected) for Week 11: Keep smiling

Not sure what Chad Henne is smirking about here, he knows he plays for the Jaguars, right? He instantly looks like every bad guy from a movie based in college. He could easily be the president of the Alpha Betas and quarterback at Adams College if they ever want to do a remake of “Revenge of the Nerds.”

Fantasy Post Mortem: RG3 rules, Matt Ryan iced

There is a segment we run every Monday called #thathelpsnoone where we celebrate the curtain jerkers who rob precious fantasy points from the guys we actually started. And if we wanted to, we could have filled the entire hour on Monday with #thathelpsnoone and we’re not even talking about the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Post Mortem: This is why you start Calvin Johnson

You’ve heard this before, but this is why you always play your studs. Calvin Johnson has led the world this season in being tackled at the 1-yard line. No, seriously. Elias passed along this note before the start of NFL Fantasy Live on Sunday which said Megatron had been tackled at the 1-yard line after four of his catches. And each time, the Lions ran the ball in each time, and did not go to Johnson.
