Now that the fantasy playoffs are here, Jason Smith says it’s time to go with the quarterbacks you’re familiar with.

If you’re familiar with my work at all, you know two things about me: I love to make “Top Gun” references, and the second is that I live and die with my fantasy studs. And I bring this up because there is a rumor floating out there that one of our producers for “NFL Fantasy Live” (and a former producer on the “Dave Dameshek Football Program“) sat Drew Brees this week.

Late game observations Tim Tebow doesn’t throw it often and doesn’t throw it particularly well. But when he does throw it, he’s throwing it to Eric Decker. Since Tebow became the starter, Decker has 15 catches for 261 yards and four touchdowns. Broncos receivers don’t have much value, but if you’re going to start one, it should be Decker. Of all the unwritten fantasy rules, here’s one more: Start Ryan Mathews against the Broncos. Mathews ran for 137 yards Sunday, his third career 100-yard game. All of them have come against Denver. Is there any receiver as frustrating as Vincent Jackson? For as talented as he is, the big wideout has had a maddening tendency to disappear in games. While he […]

It’s time to talk quarterback blues on a Tuesday. Let’s get it going.
Heading into NFL Network’s first Thursday Night Football broadcast, the Raiders and Chargers (both 4-4) are looking for something to tip control of the AFC West in their favor.
For this week’s quarterback rankings, there are no byes, remember. We’re skipping a week before they finish up in Week 11. That means you play all of the Holy Five: Rodgers, Brady, Vick, Brees, and Newton — regardless of matchup. This makes picking the next five best QBs extremely difficult because they’re all available. Here’s how I rank them six through 10 for Week 10.
It took T.J. Houshmandzadeh all of one practice to draw a strong conclusion about the Raiders.
Week 9 of the fantasy quarterback rankings sees a new name slip into the top five, while Ben Roethliberger makes the list despite a potentially difficult matchup.

The Tim Tebow era got off to a memorable start in Miami Sunday, where the former Florida Gator looked terrible for three and a half quarters before rallying the Broncos to turn a 15-0 deficit with 2:39 left into an 18-15 overtime win.

Ninety-four-year-old Ed Sabol became the oldest man ever inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year. See how the founder of NFL Films changed the way we watch sports and earned the gratitude of generations of NFL stars when “A Football Life: Ed Sabol” premieres on NFL Network Thursday at 10 p.m. ET.
In the first hour, Jason Smith, Elliott Harrison and Michael Fabiano discuss why you need Tim Tebow on your roster and when Carson Palmerwill become fantasy ready. In hour two, the guys talk to Steve Wyche about DeMarco Murray’s fantasy value and why you need to pick up Joe McKnight if your running backs are letting you down.
With the ink on his contract barely dry, Carson Palmer has apparently already landed the starting job in Oakland. But it may be a week or two before he’s worthy of inserting into your fantasy lineup.
