Week 6 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

This game is a matchup of the two top teams in the NFC North, by the standings at least. The key to this game will, of course be the offenses. Both the Lions and Packers come into this game boasting offenses which rank in the top half of the NFL and this game should be... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins: Is Nuk Still Atomic for Fantasy?

We have seen from DeAndre Hopkins an ability to be elite no matter who the quarterback is. This has been even more so the case with Deshaun Watson behind center in recent seasons. So, what has changed this year? Well. Nothing actually. While we are disappointed in the play of Hopkins this season, we really... Read More

Warning Signs: Stefon Diggs, Le'Veon Bell, Baker Mayfield

Another week, another surprising loss. At least this one did not take place on American soil. The Raiders took down the Bears in London, proving no one really knows what is going to happen any given week in the NFL. It also looks like there really is no dominant team in the NFC. This works for... Read More

Don't Let Me Down - What to Do with Disappointing Offenses

The key to drafting a quality fantasy team is to find players on high-powered offenses and draft them. By doing this, you give yourself a piece of good teams who should score a lot.

Week 5 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Finally, a decent Monday night game. Well, at least on paper. The Cleveland Browns come across the entire country from Baltimore to take on a 49ers team coming off a bye. Pretty unfair but it is the NFL, so it is par for the course. San Francisco is undefeated at 3-0 despite George Kittle not... Read More

Warning Signs: Week 4 Review

What a week it was. Not only did the Browns finally look like the team we expected, there were also numerous upsets all around the league. Don’t worry survivor pool participants - the Dolphins didn’t win. It wasn't that crazy of a week. But things were for sure crazy. The fact the Raiders, Panthers, Buccaneers,... Read More

Week 4 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Nothing like saving the worst game of the week for last. In another forgettable matchup of winless teams, the Cincinnati Bengals travel to Pittsburgh to take on the almost as bad Steelers and Mason Rudolph. If I were ESPN at this point, I would be asking for a refund from the NFL. Or at least a... Read More

Warning Signs: Week 3 Review

As we approach Week 4, warning signs are starting to become alarming for some and false alarms for others. If we evaluate what we really need to worry about and what we don’t, it will allow us to improve the state of our fantasy teams. Were you worried about Mike Evans after two weeks? How... Read More

Week 3 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Well, it's back to the dregs of Monday Night Football games. It's gotten to the point where this game is nearly as bad as the Thursday night game, and something needs to be done about the scheduling. But until that happens, we are stuck with bad games each and every week, and this one is... Read More

The Antonio Brown Effect in New England

Life gives us many questions to ponder. What is the meaning of life? If time heals all wounds, how do you explain belly buttons? And the age-old question from the Spitballs podcast, would you rather have to give up ride-share services the rest of your life or food-delivery services? But for our purposes here and... Read More

Warning Signs: Week 2 Review

With Week 2 in the books, it is clearer what to be afraid of and what was a one-week fluke. David Montgomery the number two behind Mike Davis? Fluke. Oakland Raiders a good team? Fluke. But now it is time to turn to the situations which are seemingly staying the same. We need to find... Read More

Week 2 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Last season started with bad game after bad game on Monday Night Football. If last week was a sign, this season should be much better in terms of both gameplay and announcing. Thank goodness for both. This week, the matchup pits an underperforming Cleveland Browns team traveling east to New Jersey to take on the... Read More

Warning Signs: Week 1 Review

Obviously, we cannot overreact too much to Week 1 of the football season. This said, the first installment of this series may be a little shorter than normal. Just because Mitchell Trubisky looks bad as a quarterback doesn’t mean you should drop him now and find someone else. So what if the Dolphins gave up... Read More

Week 1 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchup Analysis

Updated Tight End Draft Rankings for Half-PPR Scoring

Ah, the tight end position. Other than the kicker and defenses, the least useful position in fantasy football. But alas, it is a necessary position so we need to look at it. Of course, here we will be talking about typical single-TE leagues with no scoring premium. So, you really have to decide whether or... Read More

Dominick Petrillo's 2019 Blind Dart Throws

I have never been a huge fan of spicy food. So, instead of spicy takes, I am going to compare my bold predictions to throwing blindly at a dartboard and hoping for a few bullseyes. It seems like an appropriate analogy anyway. Anyone standing nearby better watch out! Don’t get me wrong, these will still... Read More

Wide Receiver Draft Rankings - Standard Scoring

The first pick in fantasy drafts is always the elite running back. Whether it be in PPR leagues or standard, this is the case and for good reason. It is important to have an elite running back when they are available. But this doesn’t mean you should forget about the wide receiver position. Sure, it... Read More

Running Back Standard Rankings for Fantasy Football Drafts

Running backs don’t matter. This may or may not be true in the real NFL but in fantasy, it surely isn’t the case. If it were the case, why are the top four consensus players all at the position? It is always great to have one of the top guys at the position. But if... Read More

Don't Sleep on These Quarterbacks

Take’em high and let’em fly. Sit and wait. These are both options to play when looking at the quarterback position in fantasy football.

Team Defense (D/ST) Draft Sleepers

Football is a fickle game. NFL defenses can be the same. A defense can be good one year and not so good the next. The common sentiment is the need to get rid of defenses in fantasy football. While this much like the kicker, debate is a good thought, it has not happened yet. Until... Read More

Is the Next Tom Brady Out There?

In what has been described as a lackluster rookie quarterback class, there is really not a lot of value beyond the top couple of picks in dynasty leagues. But we know there are always hidden gems and players that take us by surprise. Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins and maybe Daniel Jones will get plenty of starting time... Read More

ADP Showdown - Derrick Henry vs Josh Jacobs

Roll Tide. Both of these former Alabama running backs know this chant well. But which one of them do we want to roll with in 2019? Both players are on teams likely to struggle on offense.
