Cam Newton is an undroppable in most fantasy leagues, and it’s probably a good thing, too, considering most impetuous fantasy enthusiasts would at least consider dropping him after another disappointing game in Week 5. Like you’re sitting around, drinking a few beers, watching Dexter after the Sunday night game and thinking, “(expletive) it, I’m done with this guy.”

Week 3 is nearly in the books, how are you feeling? We still have a great Monday night game left, but let’s look back at the wek that was.

Hellooooo from San Francisco. Or, actually, Santa Clara, Calif. Hey, only a 45-minute drive. Anyway, the San Francisco 49ers are about to practice, and Randy Moss will be on the field when they do. The 35-year-old formerly retired receiver spoke to the media today for about 10 minutes, and he was as colorful as always. That accent never gets old, and neither does what he says. But this time, to me, it felt different. He’s older and wiser, but maybe kinder and gentler? He was soulful, almost. He was asked about his milestones and said he didn’t care. Not really, anyway. “I just love to play football,” Moss said. “All that other stuff I’ll leave up to y’all. I’ve been […]

First, there was the Wildcat. Then, spread offenses. The college game has long proven a feeder ground for concepts that break into the NFL. But what’s next? For that question, I asked several who work in or work closely to the college game — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, South Florida’s Skip Holtz, and analyst Doug Flutie. Their answers were all the same. As Meyer expertly put it, “Utilizing the quarterbacks as something more than just hand the ball off and throw it.“ Yup, the mobile QB era in the NFL is alive and well, and it’s only going to grow. Robert Griffin III (right) is this year’s addition. Cam Newton and Tim Tebow have also shown what worked in […]

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to be used in red-zone situations, but does the news make him fantasy worthy?

While racing around the golf course in South Lake Tahoe yesterday, I ran into San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith. So, while he walked from the 18th green to the first tee (making the turn), we caught up on the 49ers offseason. In between signing autographs and dodging stray carts, Smith came off as a guy pumped to get going. Considering his team added weapons like Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, I can’t blame him. “Love it, love it,” Smith told me when I asked what he thought of the new additions. “We had a great offseason, a lot of new faces came in, really fit in. But this is the time when real football starts, put the pads on and […]

Happy ‘getaway’ Friday everybody! Or maybe it’s just me who is getting away for a week. Yes, please try to contain your excitement. Let’s get to the fantasy.

Any chance of Mario Manningham having a strong fantasy performance ended when Peyton Manning started negotiating with the Broncos.
