Welcome to Week 5 everyone. With a quarter of the season over and bye weeks starting, there might be even more urgency for many fantasy owners to hit the waiver wire. Below are my recommended FAAB waiver wire bids for Week 5. Each FAAB auction price recommendation will be based on a $100 FAAB budget,... Read More

Before the season started, I was mystified at the high ranking of so many rookies. I even said to a friend that to justify the lofty expectations, this rookie class would essentially have to break records. As it turns out, it was well on its way to doing so (and still might). Amongst those leading... Read More

There were many complaints about the lack of waiver-wire options at the end of Week 3, and this just goes to show that you need to be careful what you wish for. In a week that began with Ty Montgomery scaring us all with a rib injury and Davante Adams nearly getting Sleepy Hollow'd, we’d... Read More

Unfortunately, it's going to be a busy week for the RB waiver wire. This article should be accompanied by the theme music for M*A*S*H (Google it kids, it's a classic).

Sunday's Week 4 slate was absolutely brutal for fantasy owners. It's obviously never fun to see any player in the NFL go down with a serious injury, but fantasy football ends up making the heartbreak that much worse. Not only that, but there have been way too many head-scratching moments this year, and Week 4 was no... Read More

Waking up early the past two weeks for the London games has left me too drained from football to watch the Sunday night games all the way to the end--once the Seahawks opened the floodgates, I went to sleep.

It turns out that the unlikely Thursday night shootout between the Rams and 49ers was just a sign of things to come, as Week 3 opened with an odd 44-7 shellacking of the Ravens by the Jaguars in London.

Week 3 saw things revert back to normalcy in the fantasy world. Just kidding, it was a ****ing mess. Not so much in the running back world, though.
