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.

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.

Start Philip Rivers and all of your Chargers with confidence this week. This is a Norv Turner game where this team rallies for a somewhat meaningless win in October. These were all my rally cries prior to the Chargers game in Cleveland.
So much for that.

The 2012 season is just days away from kicking off and this looks like an exciting season with a lot of big-name rookies expected to make a huge impact. But you can’t talk about those rookies without the inevitable comparisons. Here’s a look at some of the top rookies and how they compare to their contemporaries.
Drew Pearson backtracks on his criticism of the ‘Dez Rules’
The Tennessee Titans have no plans to put Dez Bryant-like restrictions on their troubled wide receiver Kenny Britt, coach Mike Munchak told “NFL AM” on Tuesday morning.
“We have a particular schedule because he’s been on the PUP list and he’s been injured,” said the second-year head coach. “We have him on a certain schedule that we feel fits perfectly for him. He’s involved in everything the players have done as far as, he is in all the meetings, he’s doing all the things he needs to do, h’’s here on time, he’s been doing everything we’ve asked of him.”
Hello from Valley Ranch, where the Dallas Cowboys have finished up practice for the day. They play the Miami Dolphins in their final preseason game on Wednesday, but that’s really for the lower-rung guys. For the good guys, it’s all about the New York Giants. That’s the season opener, and the nation will be watching. The biggest points of discussion today are the Dez Bryant rules, which ESPN Dallas discussed on Saturday night, and which we can confirm. Want some reaction to that and other highlights? – Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was ready for the question about it, and his company line was a strong one. Yes, Dallas wants to offer Bryant support, surrounding him with a security force, banning […]
For the past couple days, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had avoided talking to Dez Bryant. The WR had been arrested, and Jones told a radio station that he was “too pissed” to do so. All that stems, of course, from Bryant’s arrest for allegedly hitting his mother. Well, that has changed. Perhaps this situation is quieting down for Dallas. Jones acknowledged that his “disappointment” with Bryant was why he hadn’t talked with him. “That’s one of the main reasons,” Jones said. “You know as a daddy sometimes, you’re not supposed to spank when you’re mad. I wanted to get the information, like I said the other day, but I also wanted to get my mind right so we could really […]
The biggest news for the Dallas Cowboys heading into training camp was WR Dez Bryant’s arrest last week. And many have weighed in about what it means. Out here in South Lake Tahoe, legendary RB Emmitt Smith offered some thoughts, and so did WR Miles Austin. Late yesterday, another key figure on this year’s team spoke on the subject. TE Jason Witten, one of the team leaders, sounded as conflicted as could be expected when I asked him about Bryant’s arrest. Yes, he’s a teammate. But Witten also expressed disappointment. What did he tell me? “I don’t know enough about the situation to really comment too much on it until I get further information, but I support him as a […]
The final foursomes are out on the course here in South Lake Tahoe, which means we’re about to wrap up for the day. Don’t worry, we’ll be back at it again tomorrow. But first, let’s hear from a familiar face — Cowboys WR Miles Austin. He finished hitting balls on the range — in between signing an endless string of autographs — and stopped to talk. Austin was in good spirits, talking up the Cowboys’ devotion to physical fitness … but not wanting to discuss what’s up with recently arrested WR Dez Bryant. “It’s important to all of us (to stay in shape), and I feel like everyone’s been doing a good job staying in shape, especially after we broke […]
Both Marshawn Lynch and Dez Bryant face their share of legal issues, but is it enough to affect their fantasy potential?
Randy Moss is trying to prove he still has something to offer. Unlike other players on the down-slope of their careers, he might be right.
