Week 17 fantasy feedback

» What can we say about Adrian Peterson that we haven’t all year? This has been a season for the ages. » As expected, the Chargers running game hasn’t been particularly special. Four different guys have carried the ball today, with Jackie Battle (11 rush, 20 yards) leading the way. » Rob Gronkowski is active for today’s game, but isn’t seeing many snaps. He has one catch for 19 yards, but it’s hard to expect we’ll see much more from him today — especially with the Patriots in control. In baseball parlance, Gronk is a reliever just trying to get a little work in. » The Vikings might be in the middle of a perfect storm for fantasy owners. Trying to make the […]

Week 16 fantasy feedback

» Joe Flacco is back to being good at home. He’s thrown for more than 200 yards with a pair of touchdowns and a rushing score in the first half. If only he were consistent enough to start in a big fantasy situation. » It was a pretty bad time for BenJarvus Green-Ellis to disappear. After being one of the hottest fantasy RBs around, the Law Firm could have been sued for malpractice in Week 16 with just 14 yards on 15 carries. » In a game with two marquee quarterbacks, the big arms delivered — Tony Romo finished with 416, four touchdowns and no interceptions. Drew Brees wouldn’t be outdone, throwing for 446 yards with three TDs and no picks. This is why you […]

Week 15 fantasy feedback

» Just when you thought the Chiefs had rediscovered Jamaal Charles, he ends up with just 12 touches. Sigh. » Here’s another name to remove from your list of “So Much Potential”: Matthew Stafford. His inconsistency is just too great and after four seasons doesn’t appear to be improving. Three interceptions today and fewer than four points. Not every week needs to be a 30-point bonanza, but it would be nice to have a measure of confidence that one week is going to look pretty similar to the last. » Larry Fitzgerald had four catches for 22 yards, which has been right around his average for the past five weeks. Hopefully you had the presence of mind to bench him this week. » Calvin Johnson […]

Week 14 fantasy feedback

» There is officially a timeshare in New York after David Wilson’s huge day. That’s bad news for Ahmad Bradshaw owners since the Giants never seemed all that keen on using Bradshaw around the goal line. If Wilson keeps ripping off big runs in the middle of the field as well, Bradshaw might have a hard time getting any kind of serious production. » In the past two weeks, Drew Brees has been more of a hindrance than a help for anyone trying to win a fantasy title, throwing seven interceptions and just one touchdown. It couldn’t come at a worse time for fantasy owners. And it’s affecting the production of guys like Jimmy Graham, Marques Colston and Lance Moore. » Larry Fitzgerald had just one catch for […]

Week 12 fantasy feedback

» San Francisco’s quarterback controversy is now in full gear. Colin Kaepernick has moved the offense effectively (minus his one interception) and has both a passing and a rushing touchdown. The easy response is to say “it’s the Saints”, but let’s not forget his breakout game against the Bears on Monday night. » The Ravens are on the road, which means Joe Flacco is going to struggle. Yet Ray Rice is averaging five yards per carry. Quick, someone get this blog to Cam Cameron! » I fielded several tweets today asking if people should start one QB or another over Drew Brees. Yes, the 49ers defense is tough. But it’s Drew Brees, people! You drafted him in the first round for a reason. […]

Week 9 fantasy feedback

» Adrian Peterson is still very, very good. Carry on. » The Oakland Raiders might have some tough decisions to make at running back. Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both left Sunday’s game with injuries, leaving Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones to pick up the slack. » Not to be outdone, Josh Freeman is becoming a weekly start in many leagues. Including today’s game, Freeman has thrown two or more TD passes in four straight games while only throwing one interception in that same stretch. I’m not sure if Vincent Jackson has made Freeman better or he’s just figured things out. Frankly, I don’t care. I just want more. » For the fourth consecutive week, Doug Martin is over 13 fantasy points and 100 scrimmage yards, making sure you don’t forget […]

Week 8 fantasy feedback

» Despite having a big lead early (and since blowing it), the Giants offense has been pretty non-existent today. Ahmad Bradshaw has been held to just 31 rushing yards while Eli Manning is 8-0f-20 for 106 yards. » Week 8 has been another ride on the Tony Romo coaster. Sure, he has a rushing touchdown and is closing in on 300 passing yards, but those three first-half interceptions have been an anchor on his fantasy production today. » It looked like this week was all set up for Jamaal Charles to do big things. But with just four rushing yards on five carries, that hasn’t been the case at all. Then again, the entire Chiefs offense has been pretty miserable. » If you’re looking […]

NFL fantasy feedback: Week 6

» It’s time we start acknowledging the outstanding season Percy Harvin is having. He’s shed the label of being just a hybrid without an actual role and now he’s just as integral to the Vikings offense as Adrian Peterson. While normal fantasy studs like Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald have underwhelmed, Harvin’s on track to finish the season in the top 10 at his position. » Robert Griffin III. Wow. Just wow. » The biggest story in San Francisco was Ahmad Bradshaw beating the odds (and the 49ers run defense) on his way to a 116-yard, one-touchdown performance. He’s officially killed any talk of Andre Brown, David Wilson or anyone else possibly stealing carries from him. Bradshaw is the man in New York and deserves to be in your […]

Fantasy Feedback: Week 15

Observations from the late games Very quietly, LeSean McCoy has been one of the best backs in fantasy all year long. Sunday, he did it again by rushing for 102 yards and three touchdowns. Heading into Sunday night’s game, McCoy was the top scoring RB on NFL.com, with a 16-point lead over Ray Rice. He should be considered a top-three running back next season. Just in case you forgot that Bill Belichick hates your fantasy team, Aaron Hernandez helped remind you by catching nine balls for 129 yards and a touchdown. Those are Rob Gronkowski-like numbers. Meanwhile, Gronk played the role of Hernandez this week, being held to just 53 yards on four receptions. Regardless, if you made it to your fantasy championship […]

Fantasy Feedback: Week 14

Just when we thought we knew all there was to learn about the Packers offense…they discover a running game. Ryan Grant shredded the Raiders for 85 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns. So far this season, Green Bay’s RBs had been a non-factor. But with James Starks out of action, Grant could have some value. Especially with a game at Kansas City next week. Where has the Bills’ offense gone? At the start of the year, they were one of the top offensive outfits in the league, led by Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson and Stevie Johnson. They started to decline midway through the year, but fell off a cliff after Jackson’s injury. Sunday, they posted just 281 yards of total offense […]

Fantasy Feedback: Week 12

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 […]

Fantasy Feedback: Week 11

With Reggie Bush, Michael Bush and Chris Ogbonnaya having good days, running back controversies could be brewing in a few different NFL locker rooms. That and more in the Week 11 fantasy feedback blog.
