Sleeper Tight Ends to Start in Week 1

Its time to play some football. The season kicks off against Thursday night as the Packers and Saints square off. Both teams feature tight ends that need to be started if owned. JerMichael Finley and Jimmy Graham are going to play pivotal roles in two of the league’s best passing attacks. Outside of the obvious (Gates, […]

Cocky Smart Starts Week 1

So I just finished my daily reading of my fav 7-8 blogs and I have seen one trend repeated over and over. Tim Hightower is a MUST START this week. One site has Hightower ranked #2 right behind Chris Johnson. This is well ahead of EVERY other proven back out there. Wells is going to […]

The Hot Hand Running Backs

First thing is first. I would like us all to remember those who perished 9 years ago in the worst terror attack in my generation. Those that died are all heroes and should never be forgotten. It still causes great hurt and disgust that “greater powers” have not finished the reconstruction at “Ground Zero.” I would […]

Eanie, Meanie, For Week 1 Don’t Start Beanie

Rule of thumb has been, if your fantasy players are going up against the pitiful Rams DST, they are a must-start. On paper, starting Beanie Wells against the porous Rams’ defense should be a no-brainer. However, I’m not starting him this week and I’m here to tell you not to start him either. Wells has […]

Don’t Get Too Cute Week 1

  I’m just as guilty as the next guy. I OVER ANALYZE week 1 and try to get too cute. I stare at kickers and defenses OVER and OVER again. Though, I have to give a shout out to the Arizona D and the Dallas Kicker (I don’t know his name nor do I care to, […]

Happy Jew Year!

While my Hebrew friends all over the world will be blowing the Shofar on Thursday to celebrate the start of the New Year, my fantasy football brothers and sisters will be gearing up for the start of a different kind of new year – the beginning of the NFL Season. Yes, the NFL Season kicks […]

Mark Clayton- a Fantasy Sleeper? Bush is BACK!

In fantasy play you have to gamble. Mark Clayton just fell into the perfect situation. He was a disappointment in Baltimore- NO DOUBT. Landing in St Louis might rejuvenate his career. Laurent Robinson is the #1WR in STL by default since Donnie Avery is done for the year. Amendola showed sparks of  fantasy interest last […]
