The 2011 All-Crap Fantasy Team

Did your team suck? Well, assuming you’re an avid visitor to Fantasy-Info.com, I doubt it did. But maybe you simply have so many fantasy football teams that one of them did suck. Rather than spend time praising the players who helped you reach the playoffs, let’s bash those who didn’t do a damn thing to help you. This team will select its players as though it came from a real, live fantasy draft back in lat ...

Matt Flynn: The Key to Winning the Fantasy Playoffs?

How good are the Packers? Well, needless to say, nobody can stop them or Aaron Rodgers. They’re so good they don’t even need a running game. They’re so good that they’ve scored more touchdowns than the Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams, and Indianapolis Colts and – combined. They’re so good that they only have one fewer road win than the entire AFC East. With a win on Sunday against the New York Giants, ...

Tight End Crapshoot

This year, I decided to forego the draft strategy of picking a tight end in the first seven rounds. My thought process was rather simple. I didn’t trust Dallas Clark without Peyton Manning; nor did I trust Antonio Gates to stay healthy. So far, so good! Tony Gonzalez is getting up there in age which is true, but he’s still getting the job done. I didn’t expect Alex Smith to be successful so that downgraded ...

Midseason Observations and Prognostications

- It’s good to see Ray Rice finally getting the Ravens’ goal line carries. He scored on three of them on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Two more and he’ll match his 2009 career-high for rushing touchdowns. - First impressions aren’t everything. After getting knocked out by the Ravens in the opening game of the year 35-7, Pittsburgh has now won five of their last six games and their defense is only al ...

Lions vs. 49ers: Battle of the NFC Darkhorses

What happens when you take a team with a seemingly unstoppable offense and pair them against one of the league's toughest and physical defenses? You have the Week 6 matchup of the San Francisco 49ers against the Detroit Lions! The Lions and the 49ers? Really? Unstoppable offense? Toughest defense? Really? I know, right. I'm exaggerating a little bit but the Lions are scoring 31.8 points per game. Calvin Joh ...

Cam F’in Newton

  So you were impressed yet still skeptical after Cam Newton threw for over 400 yards against the Arizona Cardinals. Then he did it again against the Green Bay Packers and maybe you're a believer now. But I bet there's still part of you that's just not sure what to make of Newton heading into Week 3. Unfortunately for you, I expect and I assume that Newton could outplay even the loftiest projections th ...

Week 2 Gameday / Roster Prep – News and Notes

The most important bit of advice I can give you for the first few weeks of the season is not to overreact. Chad Ochocinco was non-existent in Week 1 despite the fact that Tom Brady exploded for 517 passing yards and four TDs. You certainly don't drop The Receiver Formerly Known as Johnson but I can understand the temptation to bench him. Minnesota's offense looked putrid against the Chargers, but does that ...

When God Plays Madden 12, He Uses Aaron Rodgers

In the first quarter of the highly-entertaining regular season opener between the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers, quarterback Aaron Rodgers played like Aaron Rodgers. He played like God was using Lambeau Field for his own personal game of Madden 12 and he set the Saints’ defense to the Rookie difficulty. He was playing like Bo Jackson in Tecmo Super Bowl. In a recent podcast (listen above) here at ...

Arian Foster vs. Adrian Peterson

My favorite fantasy football debate is who to take with the No. 1 pick. Last year it was Chris Johnson vs. Adrian Peterson. My personal favorite was back in 2005. That was the year it was between Shaun Alexander, LaDainian Tomlinson and Larry Johnson. Those guys were something special. Those days of 1,600-plus yards and 20-plus touchdowns for a running back are long gone. Or are they? This year presents a n ...

Patrick Willis vs. Jerod Mayo

  San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker Patrick Willis has 595 combined tackles in his four year NFL career. He’s had at least four sacks in three of those years and will likely remain a perennial solid choice as the top IDP selected for at least a few more years. New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo had 175 combined tackles last season, that’s a NFL record. Who had the previous single-season rec ...
