Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Vincent Pugliese / US PRESSWIRE This has to be one of the lighter weeks for waiver wire pickups I've seen in my four years of blogging about fantasy football. I won't list a quarterback below but if Josh Freeman is still available, he would of course be the top option at his position to pickup. Ryan Tannehill is a decent option as well, but he has an injury so we may see Matt Moore start after a r ...

Week 9 – TE Rankings

Photo By: Daniel Shirey / US PRESSWIRE Brandon Myers only received three targets against the Chiefs but credit his light usage to the Raiders posting a rare big lead on their opponent. On the other hand, Myers did made the most of his opportunities with three receptions for 49 yards on the day. While Denarius Moore is starting to emerge as the Raiders top receiver and Darrius Heyward-Bey has successfully re ...

Week 9 – QB Rankings

Photo By: Douglas Jones / US PRESSWIRE It was a case of the Good, Bad and the Ugly for the Cowboys offense on Sunday or perhaps I should say Ugly, Good then Bad. Through the first quarter and a half of the game, Dallas looked dysfunctional on offense as Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree had route running issues, Romo threw three interceptions, one going for a thank you very much touchdown by Jason Pierre-Paul, ...

Week 9 – RB Rankings

Photo By: Icon SMI Adrian Peterson will be in for a tough matchup in Seattle this week but the extra rest from playing on Thursday night against the Buccaneers will help. Maybe Peterson won't be a full strength until next season as he continues to work his way back from a major knee injury, but you wouldn't know it based on his play in recent weeks. Peterson has run well all season, but in the past two week ...

Week 9 – Flex Play Rankings

Photo By: Byron Hetzler / US PRESSWIRE The Broncos rookie running back Ronnie Hillman was a much talked about player throughout the summer as a potential sleeper to stash in the later rounds of your fantasy draft. Early in camp, Hillman suffered a hamstring injury that lingered for a few weeks and the rookie lost valuable time and started the season as the fourth string running back behind Willis McGahee, L ...

Week 9 – K Rankings

Photo By: Jim O'Connor / US PRESSWIRE Last year it seemed like the Giants were always coming from behind to make a made dash to win games. They've had some eventful matchups this year as well, but Lawrence Tynes is benefiting from New York playing close football games. Through eight weeks Tynes already has 26 field-goal attempts and what's more impressive is he's converted 24 of those chances into points. N ...

Week 9 – Team Defense Rankings

Photo By: Icon SMI Another difficult week for defensive rankings and I can't really say we have a terrific option off the waiver wire. Perhaps you can look to the Chargers, who are fresh off a seven to six loss against the Browns and will face a struggling Chiefs offense at home. Unfortunately, the Chargers offense puts the defense in difficult situations because of turnovers or in the case of last week, in ...

Week 9 – WR Rankings

Photo By: Tim Fuller / US PRESSWIRE Titus Young was a name kicked around as a potential breakout receiver for fantasy leagues this summer, but a irrelevant start found him on the waiver wire in many leagues. Young was supposed to be having a solid camp, and with Calvin Johnson drawing so much attention on the other side of the field, it only made sense Young would receive matchups he could win. It's taken s ...

FF Brainwave Report 10/27

Photo By: Icon SMI Jonathan Stewart Will Start Again Sometimes when everything appears to be going the wrong way, it's precisely the time to jump on board. The Panthers have failed to run the football with their high priced running backs and their long-time General Manager had to pay the price for the teams poor start by stepping down. Last week Stewart outworked DeAngelo Williams in the lineup with 58 snap ...

Brees Slowdown, Your Killing My Fantasy Team!

Photo By: Icon SMI Coming into our week seven clash with the highest-scoring team in the league, we walked in with a 4 and 2 record sitting in third place. Things started out poor as I was sure Frank Gore would have only marginal success against our Seahawks defense but he put up a 25 point day. Bummed for sure but early-on Sunday we finally (for some reason, most of our scoring tends to come in the fourth ...
