Week 12 is the last week with teams on the bye this season as the Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Minnesota Vikings all finally get a week off. Unfortunately, for fantasy owners, that means they will be without several top performers as they push for the fantasy playoffs.

2019 Season Preview: Cleveland Browns

Daniel Corrigan | August 12th, 2019

The Cleveland Browns finished the 2018 campaign with a 7-8-1 record. For 99 percent of teams, this would be a season to forget. But when you are 1-31 over your previous two seasons, this is an amazing start to an amazing rebuild.

The Browns rookie class was highlighted by Baker Mayfield, who broke the NFL rookie touchdown record with 27. The Browns also got production from rookies Nick Chubb, Denzel Ward, and Antonio Callaway.

After a loss to Pittsburgh, Hue Jackson and Todd Haley were fired and replaced by Greg Williams and Freddie Kitchens. Continue reading

Week 14 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | December 8th, 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. Week 14, the fantasy football playoffs. Congratulations to those of us who have reached our first goal. Now we must re-dedicate ourselves and re-focus all of our energy onto the next three weeks. It is win or go home, and I don’t know about you, but I want to win. There is one very important rule when preparing for an epic playoff run: don’t get cute. Julio Jones only had three fantasy points last week, but this week’s matchup vs the Packers should be a shootout between two bad defenses. Start Julio Jones. And don’t get thrown by a matchup and start a much less talented player in a good matchup over an elite player with a bad one. Matchups are a factor, but not the only factor.

Start Em’ Sit Em’ Week 9

Frank Dyevoich | November 3rd, 2018

With six teams on bye this week, our start/sit decisions become more crucial than ever. While it is tough to sit players who have a decent role on their team, it is the tough decisions that separate the champions from everyone else. Based on this week’s matchups, I recommend starting and sitting the following players.

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.

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.

Buying, Selling, and Trading on the Fantasy Market – Week 6

Brian DeWester | October 11th, 2018

The art of trading in fantasy football isn’t simple. Yet, as the waiver wire thins out, trading becomes nearly the only way to turn things around. The trouble with trading is two-fold. First, you have to identify the targets that you want to acquire and the ones you want to trade away. Looking at current usage, their upcoming strength of schedule and their potential upside can all help you with this process. However, the second step involves negotiation. One of the more frustrating parts is that everything could seemingly line up for your offer, and yet all your work can be undone with a simple “no.” While this article can’t really help you with the latter of those two problems, it can definitely help you identify some potential targets.
