The Quarterback Market

Givanni Damico | March 19th, 2020

This free agency period has been… interesting, to say the absolute least. Tom Brady is unofficially a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philip Rivers and his tribe of children are Indianapolis-bound, and Teddy Bridgewater is the new starter in Carolina. So, what teams are still in the quarterback market? Who are the major players still in the market? Let’s get into it.

Cincinnati Bengals 2019 Season Recap

Mason Thompson | January 9th, 2020 

The Bengals were the ultimate wild card in a changing AFC North during the offseason. While Cleveland had all of the media talking about them, Pittsburgh was without two of their star offensive playmakers, and Baltimore lost key starters on defense, Cincinnati was the ultimate dark horse in the division. That was before the injuries ended Jonah Williams and A.J. Green‘s season before they started. The Cincinnati Bengals were a complete disaster going 2-14, including an 0-11 start.

Kevin Walsh | September 13th, 2019 

We are on to week two! This week’s value edition will admittedly contain several Raiders due to the pricing coming out prior to Monday Night Football, so when you see an Oakland player in each section, know that it’s due to a combination of the Monday Night effect, as well as the initial week settling-in process.

Cincinnati Bengals Season Review

Dale Money | January 20th, 2019

The Cincinnati Bengals started off the regular season 4-1 and seemed ready to make a playoff run. However, before you knew it they picked up five straight losses and lost seven out of their last eight, ending the season with a 16-13 loss at Pittsburgh and 6-10 record to finish out of the playoff picture for the third straight year.

Start Em’ Sit Em’ Week 8

Frank Dyevoich | October 28th, 2018

The playoffs are drawing near, and each week is more important than the last. We have to make sure that we keep the momentum and maintain our winning ways. This week there are four teams on a bye, so it is crucial that we make the right lineup decisions in place of our resting stars. Based on their matchups, I recommend you make the following start/sit decisions to give yourself the best opportunity to take home the all-important W in Week 8.

Start Em’ Sit Em’ Week 7

Frank Dyevoich | October 21st, 2018

These next few weeks are going to be the difference between making the playoffs and focusing on the next season and daily fantasy sports. It is crucial that we roll out the best lineups possible and exploit the matchups that are screaming elite production. This week the Steelers, Raiders, Seahawks, and Packers are on a bye so we need to dig deep to fill those empty roster spots with players who are going to produce in their absence. Due mainly to their matchups this week, the following are the players I recommend starting and sitting for Week 7 to give you an edge at bringing home the W.

Week 7 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 18th, 2018

Has anyone noticed that my “boom” plays go boom a week or two after I feature them? So unfortunate in the timing. Albert Wilson, c’mon man! Went off this past week. And don’t even get me started on Mason Crosby. Recommended him last week, and he saw plenty of opportunities and missed everything. If he hit all 6 of his kicks including his extra point attempt he would’ve had 21 points. 21. From a kicker. Then he goes and scores 17 against the Niners the next week.

Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 6

Frank Dyevoich | October 13th, 2018

We are just about halfway through the season heading into week six, and our matchups become more critical. In these next few weeks, some will clinch a playoff berth and some will be eliminated from contention. That is why we must always be trying to improve our teams and do what we can to put the best possible starting lineup out there. First and foremost, always start the guys filling in for injured players. I am not going to tell you to start T.J. Yeldon and Tevin Coleman because that is too obvious, those guys should be in everyone’s lineups. However, there are tons of players with great matchups this week so we have to make sure we pinpoint those matchups and capitalize.

Week 6 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 12th, 2018

It’s the weekend! Time to set those lineups. Hopefully, you have Drew Brees on your team. That would bring you here to check out my streamer options. But also, congrats for having the best fantasy quarterback come year end. Matt Stafford is also on a bye. In the next six weeks there will be a need to stream, so tell your friends where you got your streaming options. Or don’t – if you want them to lose their matchup.

Week 5 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 6th, 2018

Bye weeks are in full swing. Streaming the right QBs, TEs and defenses will help you get a big win when some of your best players are out on a bye. And with the tight end position littered with injuries, streaming might be necessary every week.

In Week 5 we will lose the Tampa Bay and Chicago Bears players, who were opponents a week ago. We saw Mitch Trubisky, who has graced this article in the past, just go completely off and Trey Burton show a little life. We saw the Fitzmagic show end to welcome in Jameis Winston and O.J. Howard suffered a sprained MCL (2-4 weeks). Week 5 also brings us the return of the Panthers and the Redskins. You can lock Cam Newton, CMC, Jordan Reed, and Chris Thompson in your lineups and we might just see Alex Smith pop up in this article from time to time.

Week 5 Waiver Wire Adds

Frank Dyevoich | October 2nd, 2018

We have made it through a quarter of the fantasy season, and there is plenty that we have learned since Week 1. That being said, there are still plenty of available players that are going to contribute to your championship-winning squad this year. There are even running backs to be had this late in the game. So pay attention and grab these guys while you still can. The following adds are based on a $100 Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB).

Start Em’ Sit Em’: Week 1

Frank Dyevoich | September 8th, 2018

Fantasy Football is all about playing the matchups. Week 1 is the most unpredictable week of the fantasy season, but we know enough about the teams to make some pretty safe matchup decisions. The following are players in each position that I think you should start or sit based on their week 1 opponents. But don’t get cute. Only sit these players if you have better options, not simply different options. You should never be sitting Marshawn Lynch for Giovani Bernard.

Givanni Damico | August 22nd, 2018

The Cincinnati Bengals have been spiraling downward the last two seasons. They don’t seem to be heading in the right direction either. But we all know how the NFL landscape can change from year to year. Will 2018 finally be the year that Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton win a playoff game?
