Fantasy football stopped being fun for a lot of us in Week 16. Though, I’ve long contended fantasy football isn’t fun. You’re gutted when your team loses, and you’re merely relived when your team wins.

By: Robert Karpeles As the last few weeks of the NFL season come to an end, it’s important to keep in mind that the most exciting football hasn’t even been played yet. Yes, the best is still to come and with good games come even better storylines.

But we also live for the great stories that stay with us after the games have been played. Here our nine things we hope for nine teams with playoff potential: Jets – Make the playoffs. Please, these guys just have to […]

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.”

What isn’t becoming clearer is the quarterback situation in New York. Or how in the world Adrian Peterson healed from his ACL surgery so quickly and continues to ravage opposing defenses. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get to the Unexpected (and expected) from week 13.
