Only two more weeks remain in the 2019 NFL season. It seems like only yesterday preseason was winding up and everyone was waiting for kickoff Sunday. Now we are waiting for the final teams to punch their ticket to the postseason. There are two slots left in both the NFC and AFC and even a couple divisions still in play. It has definitely been a wild year so far and the final two weeks look to continue that trend. Injuries play a big role in a team’s success or failure, but unfortunately, injuries sometimes come at the worst possible times. Let’s take a look at what injuries might play a role in finalizing the playoff picture and possibly the playoffs as well. Continue reading →
Alright, it’s time to cook up some winning lineups once again. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. It certainly wasn’t my greatest week ever, but that happens from time to time. Nonetheless, I’ve put in the research to help us get back on track this week. Continue reading →
Tonight’s divisional game is huge for both teams. The Pittsburgh Steelers head into the Dawg Pound to face off against the Cleveland Browns. Both teams just came off of huge victories. The Browns are in a must-win scenario if they want to make it into the playoffs. The Steelers need a win to stay in the division race with the Baltimore Ravens. Here are my top players in this huge AFC North matchup.
Two weeks from today is Thanksgiving and that means the NFL regular season is on the back nine. With the San Francisco 49ers losing in overtime Monday night to the Seattle Seahawks, every team has lost at least one game this season. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins pulled off their second straight win, defeating the Indianapolis Colts, throwing NFL draft junkies for a spin. Last week’s Thursday night game between the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers was entertaining, close, and offered plenty of fantasy points.
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 this week. Be sure to follow all of them on twitter and ask any of The Scorecrow’s fantasy writers for fantasy advice.
Welcome to the Week 10 Fantasy Streamers! We have got many teams on a bye, six to be exact, so here are some options you can use to replace at quarterback, tight end, defense/special teams, and kicker.
What a start to the 2019 NFL season! Antonio Brown has turned the Oakland Raiders into The Sopranos, while Julio Jones just signed a contract extension that is fully guaranteed. However, tomorrow we can get away from all the nonsense and enjoy 13 great football games. 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 one. Be sure to follow all of them on twitter and ask any of The Scorecrow’s fantasy writers for fantasy advice.
The Pittsburgh Steelers came out of the gate relatively fast (if you ignore that Browns tie), starting with a 7-2-1 record, despite the holdout of Le’Veon Bell. They exerted some pure dominance against Carolina at home and wore down a tough Jacksonville defense. After a few head-scratchers against the AFC West, they managed to beat back New England to stay on track for a playoff run. A close loss to a very good New Orleans team coupled with Antonio Brown giving up on the team going into Week 17 buried them, and they limped to a 9-6-1 final record, missing the playoffs.

The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is tomorrow. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 tight ends for the 2019 season.
Hello, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff owners. Welcome to Week 12 edition of streaming options. After Monday’s performance, I’m sure you’re sick to your stomach thinking that you have to start somebody else at quarterback. There is hope for you, I would feel less anxious than a Travis Kelce owner who needs a win this week. If you are that Travis Kelce fan, we’re going to try to get you a touchdown with your TE streamer in Week 12. The tight end wire doesn’t really offer much more than a touchdown prayer at this point.
Week 11 will offer some new names to the streaming conversation of fantasy football. Streaming has been tough this year as most people who wanted to stream a quarterback every week probably settled on keeping their successful streamer long term like Mitch Trubisky, Jared Goff, and maybe even Andy Dalton to name a few. The tight end landscape has been brutal all year and with key injuries, more and more tight ends are surpassing the 50% owned percentage making them ineligible to be streamed.
Week 10 offers some relief from a Week 9 “bye-pocalyspe.” This past week we were forced to throw out names like Derek Carr and Joe Flacco as streaming options and that didn’t go as well as someone people had needed. Week 9 was a week where good streamers were needed desperately, but in reality there just weren’t many great options. Here’s to a better Week 10.
The fantasy playoffs are quickly approaching. This season is really flying by! Week 9 brings more bye weeks and some prominent players and defenses to cover for. Let’s check it out. But first, like always, last week’s recap.
Week 7 streaming went pretty well if you tuned in. Hope you snagged some of the featured players. Unfortunately, Ricky Seals-Jones got injured and did not return to the blowout game Thursday night. Let’s get right to Week 8.
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.
Week 3 was not kind to us fantasy owners. We lost Jimmy Garoppolo for the season to a torn ACL, Evan Engram went down with a sprained MCL, and A.J. Green went down with what is being called a groin injury. We also had some players come out of the woodwork to place their name in the ring of players worthy of being started on your roster. Every week we try to make our teams better, so let’s get to it. The following waiver wire adds are based on a $100 Free Agent Aquisition Budget (FAAB).
