Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

We know nothing. When I say "we," I am referring collectively to all of us who follow the NFL and play fantasy football on a regular basis of course.

Forget about the busts and booms everyone in fantasy football knows about! What about those busts and booms flying under the radar? There are a plethora of players who fit the under-the-radar profile this week. It is still early enough in the season where certain players are not getting the pub (negatively or positively) they...

Assessing consistency after two weeks of the season is always tough but in a 16-game season we have already seen an eighth of it.

After two weeks of the regular season, we can start to figure out which teams are contenders and which ones are pretenders, doomed to pick in the top of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Up is down, black is white, cats and dogs are living together. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the best QB in football (OK, behind Pat Mahomes) and Blake Bortles doubled Aaron Rodgers in fantasy points this week. Also, Joe Mixon, Devonta Freeman, and Leonard Fournette are sidelined by injuries while Le'Veon Bell continues to sideline himself. Also,... Read More

After two weeks of game action, anyone who drafted Leonard Fournette, Devonta Freeman, or Joe Mixon has already been confronted with having their early-round pick sidelined due to injury. That has automatically launched the unwanted process of monitoring a situation that is fraught with uncertainty for those of you who own Fournette and Freeman, while... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick is the leading MVP candidate. There have been two ties in two weeks. Josh Gordon is a Patriot. James Conner has more fantasy points than both Odell Beckham and Aaron Rodgers.

I'm an introspective type of fellow, so in preparation for this season's first edition of Heroes and Zeroes (don't look for Week 1, it's in the clouds somewhere along with the missing episode of South Park), I decided to look back at some of last season's articles when I stumbled across this intro to a...

One week down, 16 more weeks of under-the-radar booms and busts to go! My opening week of boom/bust predictions was as uneven as Eminem’s new album.

Let me make one thing clear before we get into this: I am a New York Football Giants fan. When I bleed, only half of my blood reacts to the oxygen and turns red. The other half remains blue. (Blood actually is never blue, and the whole oxygen changing blood from blue to red thing... Read More
