When it comes to Fantasy Football the key in winning has always been Running Backs. About 5 years ago you could have a a 12-team league go thru a whole first round without anything except Running Backs being taken. Over the past few years things have changed dramatically. Quarterbacks have put up some incredible numbers and with that Wide Recievers stock has risen directly and even a few top Tight Ends come into play early in the drafts. Besides that, the way teams are using a 2 running back system has also cut numbers from individual backs. Still with that being said, some of the Top Running Backs in the league can be even more valuable because of the difference between the Top RBs and the good backs. So who are the guys you still want to target, who are some of the up & comers and who should you stay away from. Lets take a look.

When it comes to Fantasy Football having the right Defense can be the difference between making the playoffs or not. The only problem is in most cases it is more about getting lucky in your draft and for that matter, starting the right one that you have on your roster. In most leagues when you draft a Defensive Team you also get their Special Teams, so that is figured into our rankings. Now there are a few teams that do top others on the list and you may want to target and others that you may stay away from. There is also a different strategy that you may want to take a look at depending on your rules and cost structure. We will take a look at all of that.

The first half of the 2014 baseball season is in the books. There were surprising winners, such as the Blue Jays, Mariners and Brewers, a lack of hitting league-wide again, and several teams good at home and lousy on the road (Cubs, Braves, Rockies, Pirates, Indians). With the surprises out of the way, here’s a look at some teams that might be active at the trading deadline and primed to make a second half surge.  Read the rest of this entry »

Over the past few years the Tight End has morphed from a big blocking safety valve for a offense into one of the most dangerous weapons on the field. Players like Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates have changed the whole complexion of the position and a teams offensive attack. Now almost every team has added this type of weapon, so who are the ones you should target, who may be a real steal late and who should you stay away from this year?

Over the past month or so I have had people ask me questions about the upcoming football season and fantasy football. My answer is usually, I haven’t even looked into it yet. I wait until the Fourth of July or the Baseball All-Star Game before I start concentration on the upcoming football season. Well we have passed the 4th and the All-Star Game is next week so I guess it is time to start taking a look. Each week I will break down the Fantasy Football postions, giving you my Top Players at the position, the Surprise Players to watch and some possible Players that will drop off. We will look at Quarter Backs, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends, Defenses and Kickers. Since we haven’t gotten to the All-Star Break yet, lets start slow with the Kickers.

So the world gathers in plazas, pubs and other places to cheer on their country in the World Cup action, but I still have a hard time catching the World Cup Fever. This is the most watched sporting event in the world. I have watched alot of the matches, I know alot of the players and have done the work to make alot of winning picks during the World Cup but you won’t see me glued to the TV just to watch soccer. So what makes this sport so popular around the world, yet can’t steal the eye of many of us here in the USA?

Baseball is a game of stats and streaks. The Blue Jays started 12-15 at the end of April before getting it together, surging into first place with a powerhouse offense. Kansas City was stuck in fourth place at the end of May before making a June surge and put some heat on the Tigers. No one paid much attention to the Miami Marlins at the end of April, rebuilding while sitting in last place. Now they are winding down a first half within striking distance of a Wild Card and first place in the NL East.  Read the rest of this entry »

Starting pitchers in baseball get much of the attention (and money) thrown their way. The average starter is asked to go 6-7 innings, while aces are expected to give 7-8 quality innings. Many games are decided in the last three innings, however, making relief pitchers an extremely important, and often overlooked, element.  Read the rest of this entry »
