It is time to kick off the football season! A time of the year when so many of us celebrate as much Christmas morning! Whether your game is college or NFL it doesn’t matter because they both get underway for real in the next couple weeks. Because of that it is time for the Freeplays.com Handicappers Football Predictions. 9 of our handicappers have made their predictions for the NFL and BCS. They are Razor Sharp Sports (RS), Jim Feist (JF), #1 Sports (#1), Vegas Steam Line (VS), Arthur Ralph (AR), Easy Money (EM), Teya Sports (TS), Hawkeye Sports (HS) and a brand new handicapper to the Freeplays family, Kevin Todd (KT). I have to warn you that predictions can be tricky and not always work out. Last year was the perfect example as I made possibly the worst Super Bowl Prediction ever with Houston over Atlanta. So lets see if I can redeem myself and she who everyone else likes.

As we get closer to kickoff of the regular season and of course your fantasy draft, it is time to talk about picking your fantasy football quarterback. I truly believe that having the right quarterback on your team makes all the difference. I am not saying that you should take your first round pick and take your star QB. What I am saying is taking the right QB at the right time is important. So with that being said, lets take a look at my top QBs, some shocker picks and guys you want to stay away from.

When it comes to fantasy football the postition of Wide Receiver can be very tricky. Do you go after one of the big name stars or do you hold off until later and build a solid depth of ball catchers? There are a couple top notch players that make a difference on a weekly basis, there are others that are consistent scorers that score 5-10 points a week and then there are players that will have zero one week and 20 the next. How you fill your receiving stables will often depend on your draft position and how others draft. So if you get the chance who are the Stars you should take, who are the receivers that will surprise you this year and who should you stay away from this year. Lets take a look.

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.

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?

We are just a few weeks away from the Major League All-Star game. Overall I am not of fan of how much of it is done. I hate that they are playing for Home Field Advantage for the World Series. Normally the process of selecting the starting line-up makes me laugh. We have seen ballot stuffing going on for decades and now with the process of voting online, it seems to have gotten worse. With that being said, I have to tip my hats to the voters “So Far” in who they have voted for. There are very few players that I don’t agree with. Lets take a look at how the voting is going so far.
