Washington Redskins 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | January 2nd, 2020 

The 2019 season was one filled with frustration by the fans and a billion #FireBruceAllen replies on every tweet from the Redskins’ official twitter page. The team finished 3-13, the second-worst record in the league, only ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals. Jay Gruden was fired after the team started 0-5. The team had unrealistic expectations this season but Gruden needed to go as the team needed a major shakeup. It took until week nine for rookie Dwayne Haskins to take over as the starter at quarterback. He should have been starting the game after Gruden was fired. This season should have been about developing the future, yet it started off with expectations of competing for the playoffs.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings

Mike Fanelli | October 24th, 2019 

Last week’s Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos wasn’t much of a contest. Despite the Chiefs losing star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the second quarter with a dislocated kneecap, the Broncos didn’t score after the opening drive and went on to lose 30-6. Hopefully, tonight’s game between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings is more entertaining, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

Monday Night Football DFS Week Three: Bears vs Redskins

Brandon Braasch | September 23rd, 2019 

It is time for some Monday Night Football. This week will be a lot better than last week’s game. Let’s be honest last weeks game was brutal. Watching Trevor Siemian and then Luke Falk play quarterback was not exciting. This game might not be as exciting as watching Patrick Mahomes, but at least Mitchell Trubisky and Case Keenum will do more than just dump the ball off to the running back. In a game where I expect there to be a good amount of fantasy points put up, let’s see who the best players are on this slate.

Who Are the Washington Redskins?

Chazz Bradner | November 7th, 2018

At the halfway point in the NFL season, the Redskins have shocked everybody by sitting at the top of the NFC East division with a 5-3 record. However, the NFC East is nothing to brag about, to say the least. Watching this division race unfold is like seeing a brand new Lamborghini sitting outside just waiting to be driven by somebody. However, the Lamborghini is locked so you can’t open it and you just walk away leaving the beautiful car to collect dust. What these teams do not know is that the keys to this prize are in their own pockets as we speak, it is theirs for the taking.

Start Em’ Sit Em’ – Week 2

Frank Dyevoich | September 15th, 2018

Another week has gone by and we have learned plenty. Target players facing the Buffalo Bills. Start the running backs facing the Miami Dolphins. Start the wide receivers facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs. Likewise, unless it is a superstar, you should probably sit the wide receivers facing the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, and the Denver Broncos. Heading into Week 2, there are a ton of glaring matchups that need to be exploited. These are the players I think that you should start or sit depending on the matchup.

Buying, Selling, and Trading on the Fantasy Market – Week 2

Brian DeWester | September 13th, 2018

Trading in fantasy football isn’t exactly for the risk-averse. Although, it would be hard to imagine a football season without it. And there is nothing quite like putting together a trade offer that ends up helping your team in the long run. The difficulty is not only finding that deal but also weighing the potential risk versus the potential gain. For instance, the aftermath of Week 1 provides ample opportunity to take advantage of some serious tilting. However, there is the risk of overreacting and falling victim to the dangers of small sample sizes.

Whatever you choose to do, keep in mind that not every trade can fit into the “buy low, sell high” archetype. Sometimes it makes sense to buy high; especially, if you think the stock of the player will continue to rise. The same can be said for selling low. So, without further adieu, here are some trends and players that I’m buying/selling after the first week.
