Week 17 has finally arrived. The Detroit Lions will not be returning to the playoffs, and since Calvin Johnson has already claimed the record for receiving yards in a single, the Lions looked to play spoiler to the playoff hopes of their division rival Chicago Bears.

It’s week 16 and with the Lions officially eliminated from the playoffs, all eyes turn to Calvin Johnson and his pursuit of Jerry Rice’s all-time receiving record.

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.

The Detroit Lions stayed on the road in week 15 as they faced the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium, where Calvin Johnson aimed to continue his outstanding season, and close in on Jerry Rice’s all-time receiving record.

The Detroit Lions, playoff hopes all but lost, traveled to a snowy Wisconsin in week 14 to face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. Divisional pride was still on the line, and Calvin Johnson was closing in on Jerry Rice’s all-time receiving yardage record.

It’s week 13, and the Detroit Lions badly needed a win against the resurgent Indianapolis Colts to keep any hope of a trip to the playoffs alive. Let’s see if Megatron and co. brought their A-game.

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.

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.

Anybody who needed a minimum of four points from Calvin Johnson on Monday night must have felt pretty good about their chances. But the nightmare was only beginning.

Many fantasy enthusiasts likely feel a lot like Felix Baumgartner this morning after some players (and let’s put this mildly) didn’t come through on Sunday. Though, some old standbys finally showed themselves. Let’s get into it.

John Cena‘s mantra is hustle, loyalty and respect. Well, at least two out of three isn’t bad.

At this point, Matthew Stafford may be used to this scenario. Struggle some in the beginning, deal with the adversity… then come through in heroic fashion in the end. Who can forget this classic, after all? It was that way Sunday. The Detroit Lions QB threw three picks in the first half against the Rams, appearing out of sync. It looked like a brutal opening loss was in the cards. Except, there he was on the final drive, marching 80 yards in 1:45 to win it on a TD pass to RB Kevin Smith. Ho hum, Stafford was 6-of-8 passing for 80 yards on that drive, with one incompletion as a spike. What did we learn? “Yeah, we’re never out of […]

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning caused a stir prior to last season when he told the world he was an elite quarterback. Eli, of course, proved his doubters wrong when he was selected as MVP of Super Bowl XLVI — the second of his NFL career.
