Top 10 Fantasy Football Lineup Busts: Week 2

Last week in this column I made this little joke: "if I tell you to bench David Johnson, you have my permission to send me mean Tweets about it." Well--ugh.

Week 2 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

Don't overreact. Don't overreact. Fantasy owners need to repeat this many times before making lineup decisions after one week of regular season football. The same goes for ranking the players and trying to judge relative value. This week, I'll resist temptation to put Kareem Hunt as overall RB1, steer clear of Carson Palmer, and try... Read More

Week 1 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

If you've spent the last 24 hours crying your eyes out because you passed on Kareem Hunt, benched Mike Gillislee, or paid up for Gronk, you're not alone my friend.
