We’re still in holiday mode, even though Santa didn’t bring our favorite team a playoff spot. However, jolly old St. Nick has been generous with a few other teams. The NFC playoff spots are still up for grabs. But even if you’ve been naughty or nice, we’re going to present you with out generous gift of content for this past week. Sunday: RG3 Zone – RG3 makes a comeback against the Eagles. It’s like he’s never left. Madden Curse Watch – Megatron transforms Jerry Rice’s all-time record.

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 […]

Every year many of us gather around the TV to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life,” a lovely Christmas tale where George Bailey is given a second chance on life after a visit from a guardian angel. And many of you are likely a little morose after your team has failed to reach the playoffs in 2012. Well, consider me your Clarence as I show you why there is reason for hope with your favorite team. And without further ado …

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.”

Time to move forward with Cedric Benson who is expected to be out eight weeks because of Lisfranc surgery.

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.”

This is his third consecutive two touchdown game and his third 300-plus passing yard game. The Colts are now at .500 with a 2-2 record. […]
