Week 8 QB Rankings — The Up or Down Game!

[cue game show music] Welcome back for another edition of “The Up or Down Game” with the Week 8 QB Rankings! [cue applause] I’m usually playing this game with my blood pressure whenever I talk to the wife! [cue canned laughter]

The way this game works is we look at the current Fantasy quarterback rankings based on their Fantasy points per game, and we decide if they will go “up” in the rankings…

The Week 8 DST rankings will be missing both the San Francisco 49ers defense and the less valuable N.Y. Giants defense, as both teams are on byes.

The smart owner will look ahead at the available defenses for Weeks 9 and 10, also, to find some matchups to exploit – or matchups to avoid with their already owned defenses. There are six teams on byes in those weeks.

It’s starting to become more and…

Week 7 WR Rankings — Sponsored by @SKYLLZONE

The Week 7 WR Rankings are pretty loaded once again, and it seems like you might have some tough decisions to make for either your third wide receiver or your flex position with this week’s matchups.

Last week, we shared some interesting numbers that affected Fantasy wide receivers and it seemed to go over pretty well.

We pointed out how T.Y. Hilton was fifth in targets despite the love he was…

Week 7 TE Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE – New Respect For Tight Ends

Sometimes in the middle of the Fantasy season, I like to look back to see which tight ends have popped up out of nowhere to find themselves relevant in our game. These Week 7 TE rankings will have several players that we didn’t care about this past summer.

But now, whether it’s due to injury or effort, they are owned in plenty of Fantasy leagues, and some of them might have even scored against us…

Week 7 RB Rankings — Sponsored by @SKYLLZONE – Faux Real Rankings

We’re just over the halfway mark of the Fantasy Football regular season, so we can take a wide view of what has happened behind us. While the Week 7 RB rankings are certainly important – who doesn’t want to be 7-0!?! – I think we also need to look at the position to see what we can expect for the rest of the season.

With that in mind, I thought I’d do a fun exercise and play “Faux Real” with the…

Week 7 QB Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE — And Rest of the Season QB Rankings

As we enter the one-third mark of the NFL season (and pretty much the halfway mark for the Fantasy Football regular season), we can start to dump the dead weight on our roster and work toward using players that are finally fulfilling potential.

As young players start to figure things out, they stop thinking and start reacting, allowing their athleticism and speed to become more of an advantage.

We’re three weeks into the world of bye weeks, which means a lot of us have had to cut defenses we like in order to pick up a defense that’s not on a bye. Our Week 7 DST rankings are just two teams short this week, as the Buccaneers and Eagles will have their bye weeks.

Obviously, the Buccaneers defense has been a huge disappointment, making both Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano laugh heartily. The…

This week, we’re going to look at the “Rest of the Season” rankings from FantasyPros.com, along with our Week 6 Kicker rankings to get a good idea of what Fantasy Football owners should do in the coming weeks, as bye weeks roll along.

When we look at “Rest of the Season” rankings for kickers, we understand that in normal-sized leagues, without injured reserve spots, kickers should probably just…

The biggest news for the Week 6 WR rankings came midweek, when A.J. Green re-injured his toe in practice and had to be carted off the field for the Bengals.

Cincinnati was already missing Tyler Eifert (elbow) and Marvin Jones (ankle), so Mohamed Sanu suddenly appears to be a player that’s going to see a lot of action on Sunday. Jones could still play, but things don’t look good for Andy Dalton…
