Welcome to the GPP/Tournament Plays article for Week 12. Let’s start by saying, any picks used or mentioned for cash games can be played in tournaments. I think that’s an important thing to know and can sometimes get confused whenever the two are mentioned separately. For that reason, I’ve tried to avoid mentioning my cash game plays for this article.
Week seven started out with a bang on Thursday night when Patrick Mahomes was knocked out with a dislocated patella. There are other injuries to check on before the main slate of games kicks off later this afternoon. Continue reading →
For the second week in a row, the Thursday night matchup was an entertaining game. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Los Angeles Rams 30-29 as Greg Zuerlein missed a game-winning 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds left in the game.

However, I think this game will be boring and lack a lot of big-time fantasy scorers.
With four weeks in the books, we are a quarter of the way through the 2019 fantasy season. Several big-name players have been lost to injury but new fantasy stars are in the making. To help fantasy football players with their roster construction, three of our writers have provided some insight on which players they would start, would sit, and consider a sleeper for week five.

Well here’s to hoping you didn’t lose Saquon Barkley, but if you did don’t feel defeated yet. You aren’t the only one and some of our writers did as well. It’s a painful experience as if you were hurt alongside him, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Now you get to test your management skills till he returns and as the season goes along start to make trades and waiver pickups to stay afloat till Barkley, Tyreek Hill, Drew Brees, A.J. Green, and other key players return.
Pardon my hesitation, but fans of the New England Patriots and fantasy football players should temper their enthusiasm about the return of Josh Gordon. As the saying goes: Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. We’ve been down this road before with Gordon, and while he’s clearly tried to kick his addiction (no pun intended), he always seems to go back. Continue reading →
Ever since Josh Gordon was reinstated last season, everyone had been holding onto the 2013 version of himself. Gordon definitely flashed his talent last season, especially in his first game back when he received 11 targets and had 85 yards receiving.
