NFL Week 9 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Claims   This is where Sunday starts; right here in the waiver claims. This is the time where you build the best team you can have for this week’s matchup. So be smart; it’s not about getting the best free agent, it’s about getting the best free agent that fits your needs. So if you need a running back, grabbing the best wide receiver will not help you. Don’t be foolish here; having a lot of bench points do nothing but bring down your coaching rating (that is a joke, please do not care about what coaching rating you have, it means nothing). I will mention guys owned in less...

Waiver Wire Targets and Injury Alerts First, a couple owners out there are taking a huge sigh of relief after Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan had good fantasy games while both missing main pieces of their offenses. Rodgers played without James Jones and Randall Cobb for the entire game and Jermichael Finley for half of it yet he still put up good numbers. He ended with 29 fantasy points and still a MUST start if he is playing. Ryan entered Sunday’s game missing his number one starting wide receiver in Julio Jones, his number two wide receiver in Roddy White, and his starting running back in Steven Jackson. Many wrote Ryan (and the...

  Fantasy Football, the Art of Trading! We all know that it’s a long NFL season, but what escapes some of us is how long the Fantasy Football season is! So you didn’t do as well as you thought in your draft, welcome to 75 percent of fantasy football players. I told you before in the 12 rules of fantasy football that the draft is just the beginning. Ok, maybe you are missing out on the waiver wire because you are winning some games here and there and you don’t have a high enough waiver priority. The answer for you is trading. I know it is easier said than done, but there is an art to trading that if you learn it and master...

Ridley Me This: I was asked an interesting question yesterday in the office: who is the most disappointing fantasy player at this point in the season? Well, there are a lot to pick from but I have made my selection for the biggest bust at week 3. Not saying that this player can’t turn it around or you should trade him fast or anything like that. Nevertheless, Stevan Ridley is my choice at this moment. He was a first round pick in some drafts and a top 10 running back that has yet to get 10 total points combined in three games! Forget being the lead back on any fantasy team, he hasn’t lived up to even being a flex spot on my roster....

    We all have heard the talk about being a passing league and how wide receivers are the new target of fantasy football players. The problem with it being a passing league should mean the opposite, running back is now more than ever the position to target. You might be asking yourself how does that make any sense, but by the end of this you will see what I mean and how true it is. I broke down the top 60 and top 90 point getters in fantasy football at this point in the season at the position of WR/RB/TE. The point system used was a standard format - no points per receptions and no bonuses, strictly yards and...

    Waiver Wire Targets:   Week 2 has come and gone leaving many of us saying “what now”. Either you are one of the masses that have big time players underachieving or you are looking to replace an injured player for a week or two. So many spots to fill, but finding the player to fill them is tough. That is where we come in handy, we will tell you some players to get claims in for immediately. Remember, the draft is just part of the equation, the league is won by who makes the best moves during the year. So here is positional break down of guys that should be available for claims this...

So like everyone else that really cares about fantasy football, you are looking to make your line up even stronger. Maybe injuries or just a bad pick is causing your line up to look weak and if you lost week one, you can’t afford to lose week two. Each league should have a waiver wire where it determines the order in which one can pick up a free agent. This is the biggest day of the week for transactions to be made, so get on it. Before I tell you who you should target early and often, let me explain how to do so. If you are going after a big name or big point-getter, which everyone in the league should be going after, you have to...

I receive Tweets, posts, comments, and emails weekly about who to play and who to sit out. So I decided to write an article to help you see what I am thinking and why. I will not be mentioning the elite players here because it is a waste of time, as they should be started regardless of matchup.  If you should play them I list them under “Cash In” and if you should sit them, I list those under “Keep Out”. If Drew Brees, Calvin Johnson, or Adrian Peterson is active, then play them. Look back at my 12 Fantasy Rules to Live By and you will see that Rule 4 is to play your studs, so do it. I heard a story about an owner starting...
