» 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 […]

» 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. […]

» 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 […]

» 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 […]

» 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

The Andy Dalton-A.J. Green connection continues to be a productive one. The rookie QB threw for 217 yards and three touchdowns and while Green didn’t find the end zone this week, he did pull in seven passes for 83 yards. Green is becoming a solid No. 2 receiver in most formats while Dalton is a good option depending on the opponent. Matt Hasselbeck had a decent day after throwing for 272 yards and two TDs. He’s not the quarterback he once was, but Hasselbeck can be a good match-up based option if you’re struggling at the position. Meanwhile, Chris Johnson slowed down after a quick start. But he still finished with 110 total yards (64 rushing). It’s not great, but it’s better than […]

If you’re really hurting for a running back next week, maybe you consider Chris Ogbonnaya.
