Week 16 – Start’em – Sit’em

Photo By: Jake Roth / USA TODAY Sports With Jonathan Stewart out of the lineup it appears we can finally trust a running back in our lineups out of Carolina. For the second year in a row DeAngelo Williams is playing his best football down the stretch, and we should expect the veteran to touch the football over 20 times this week as the Panthers are sure to roll up a big lead on the Raiders. Week 16 Standard ...

Week 16 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kirby Lee / USA TODAY Sports Heading into Super Bowl showdowns for many fantasy leagues it's probably not a good time to say this is the weakest week for waiver options throughout the entire season, but that's exactly what we have. Outside of an opportunity opening up in San Diego because of anther collarbone injury to Ryan Mathews, there's really nothing to discuss at running back if this is your ...

Week 16 – Flex Play Rankings

Photo By: Michael Ivins / USA TODAY Sports If you happened to draft Brandon Lloyd this past summer like I did, you've probably been shaking your head when watching the Patriots play on prime-time television the past two weeks as the veteran has looked like a Pro Bowl star. In that time Lloyd has been targeted a whopping 25-times, hauling in 17-receptions for 279-yards a score and even picking up a fumble re ...

Week 16 – WR Rankings

Photo By: Cary Edmondson / USA TODAY Sports While many have made the case for Michael Crabtree being a first round bust, it appears the 4th year receiver is starting to come into his own. Early signs in the off-season suggested this could be a breakout year for Crabtree, if for no other reason than he finally overcame his problematic foot issues.

Week 16 – RB Rankings

Photo By: Derick E. Hingle / USA TODAY Sports For all the success Doug Martin has had in his rookie season, fantasy owners had to be disappointed and a little shocked by his numbers against the Saints last week.

Week 16 – QB Rankings

Photo By: Tim Heitman / USA TODAY Sports Judging by the first half of the season, it appeared Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense were going nowhere fast. The team had a losing record, one of the worst offensive lines in the league and outside of a couple solid performances, they couldn't run the football if their lives depended on it. The second half has turned out to be much more promising and in fact for t ...

Week 16 – Team Defense Rankings

Photo By: Cary Edmondson / USA TODAY Sports When the 49ers and Seahawks get together you know it's going to be a battle. While the Seahawks have outscored their opponents by a total of 108 to 17 over the past two weeks, they may not have a chance to win the division crown even if they beat San Francisco this week. Credit the 49ers for a big victory in New England and a win at home against the Cardinals week ...

Photo By: Ed Szczepanski / USA TODAY Sports In the midst of another year of disappointment in Oakland, fantasy owners caught a glimpse of what Sebastian Janikowski can be when the Raiders actually give him a steady dose of opportunities. Janikowski converted on five field goals scoring all fifteen of the Raiders points in the teams shutout victory over the Chiefs. On the day Janikowski converted a long of 5 ...

Week 15 – Start’em – Sit’em

Photo By: Kim Klement / USA TODAY Sports Heading into the second week of the fantasy playoffs, I can understand if fantasy owners are down on those players who failed to help them last week. However, one bad game doesn't mean a player is going to let you down again this week. While rookie Bryce Brown struggled against the No.1 defense in the league against the run, expect a bounce back performance as the Ea ...
