Contrary to most people, Fantasy Football actually reinforces my belief in a higher power. Because in my opinion, the statistical probability that the Bears would be so uniquely irrelevant for such a long amount time is far less likely than a giant vengeful sky man wanting to live with you when you die. And if we are talking in terms of fantasy (something we do from time to time...
I talked about this on the pod a little bit, but when you look at this game, you really wonder why the hell it's in prime time. Sure, several months ago, this might have looked good on paper... maybe? I don't blame Jay Cutler as much as Bears fans do, Alshon Jeffery is a lot of star power... but there's not much else there that your general football fan might recognize. And the Cowboys...
Below you’ll find discussions of the players that are “in play” at each position for the Week 3 main slate (aka Sunday only) DFS contests on DraftKings and FanDuel. Players are arbitrarily listed in descending order of FanDuel salary and are not ranked in order of preference given differences between the sites and the varying types of contests you might be playing.

Chalk Value Plays Miami Dolphins DST vs Cleveland Well, the price-makers oat Yahoo! got out ahead of the game… The post Week 3 DFS Value Picks appeared first on Fantasy Football Rankings & more, The Fake Football.
Well that was a weird week. When Corey Coleman outscores both Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham, and Justin Hardy outscores Julio, you know it's time to sit back, and ask ourselves, what on Earth went wrong? I'd like to take this time in the intro to talk about the most important aspect of Fantasy Football: Patience. Championships aren't won at the draft, and they are certainly not...
Games to Attack Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Once again, the Saints make their way into this… The post NFL Plays: Vegas Odds (Week 3) appeared first on Fantasy Football Rankings & more, The Fake Football.
A little late, a little more driving, but we're back and better than ever! I think. Maybe not. But Tehol and I got a lot of work done, going over the Texans and Patriots Thursday Night snoozefest as we begrudgingly admit that Bill Belichick might actually know what he's been doing all these years, Adrian Peterson and Danny Woodhead's season-ending injuries, and and we go over the...
Welcome back to the Week 3 edition of By The Numbers. I'm writing this from one of my favorite cities on the entire world - New Orleans. In fact, I'm in a bit of a haze as I pen this. Maybe it was all the huffing, or quite possibly the hookers, who knows? Either way, The French Quarter never disappoints. After I'd had my fill of the "Vieux Carre" I was deep in thought as I traveled...
Hunh, that's weird. A prime time Patriots game not against the Colts or Broncos? No Tom Brady still? Gronk still questionable? A third-string quarterback starting? The first black quarterback to start for the Patriots... ever? ALL THE QUESTION MARKS? Yeah, so this should be an easy loss for them. *Looks at matchup* LOL, nevermind. The Texans travel to Boston, bringing with them a...
We’re exactly half of a football deflation suspension into the NFL season and Tom Brady’s team is starting a third… The post Week 3 Starts and Sits appeared first on Fantasy Football Rankings & more, The Fake Football.
Whether you have chosen to play the waiver wire and stream quarterbacks, tight ends, defenses or all three, we have you covered. Below you’ll find three streaming options at each position for Week 3. Quarterback Not spending a high draft pick or a lot of auction dollars on a quarterback has been a popular season-long draft strategy for years now. Similarly, there’s a philosophy...

Well, that got ugly fast. And I’m not just talking about this week’s Jaguars - Chargers game. That was an entirely different level of ugly. This week is why so many people have been adopting the zero RB strategy when drafting. They don’t want to risk taking a running back early because of the chance of injury, and they know they will be able to watch the waiver wire and read...
Welcome back, my Horde, to another edition of your weekly vice, Hit it or quit it. Well, it looks like I managed to make it to Week 2 before my Black Widow Curse cost me some of my players. Not to mention that I got my ass beat so hard in all of my leagues this week that even Ray Rice thought that the pounding I took was excessive. It was definitely a rough one, but thankfully...
Week two of the National Football League is officially in the books. And with that, fantasy football fans are looking towards the waiver wire to see if their team can be improved in any way. Some fantasy footballers will react — or, overreact — to their players performances unjustly during this period. Plenty of buzz and player recommendations will surface in preparation of...

Seriously, for those of you who missed it, I spent the entire game trying to formulate ways on filing a restraining order against Jon Gruden on behalf of Carson Wentz. For those of you there... maaan, Gruden gonna be baitin’ hard to Wentz’s game tape from last night, am I right? I'm not even sure how Wentz garnered so much heaping attention and praise from such a mediocre line...
EAGLES BORN OUT OF THUNDER Tonight's game is kinda of a matchup between teams that are sorta-kinda similar, but not. How informative! Yes, you could say that about every team in the league, look one has football players, but they are all different! But to get away from the meta-conversation, both these teams came into the season full of mediocrity and low expectations. While we...
In what could have been a wonderful work of satire in today's title, last night's Sunday excursion into Minnesota's new football stadium may have upended years of programming in thinking that Sam Bradford (22/31, 286 YDS, 9.2 AVG, 2 TD, 121.2 RTG and 1 CAR, -3 YDS) isn't quite the second coming of Joe Montana, but moreso a cross between Mr. Glass from Unbreakable and Jimmy Clausen...
Games to Attack New Orleans Saints vs New York Giants The Saints will likely be on this list plenty… The post NFL Plays: Vegas Odds (Week 2) appeared first on Fantasy Football Rankings & more, The Fake Football.
What a great week of football last Sunday, huh? For me, Sunday turned into a six-hour RedZone session, and truth be told, it was fantastic. A definite 10-out-of-10. I also had a pretty fun time in fantasy last week, behind the great efforts of Brandin Cooks, DeMarco Murray, Eli Manning, Blair Walsh, and the Minnesota Vikings D/ST. But this is a new week, a new set of matchups, and...
