  • Week 3 Start Em, Sit Em

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Quarterbacks Start of the Week Matt Ryan ATL vs. TB – Matt Ryan is coming off a bad performance in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was able to connect with Julio Jones late in the game for a touchdown to help overall stats, but was still unimpressive. The good news is he’s heading back to Atlanta to take on the Bucs. Ryan has a good history vs. the Bucs. In twelve meetings, he’s thrown for 2,595 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. That includes 1,554 yards, 10 touchdowns, and four interceptions the last three seasons. He’s Read More
  • Week 3 Working the Waivers

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Week two was filled with injuries as a lot of big names left games with injuries. One player I mentioned last week was Bobby Rainey. If you hesitated to get him, and for whatever reason he’s still available, make sure to pick him up this week. Another player that should have been added last week is Ahmad Bradshaw. If you didn’t pick him up and he’s still available, get him. Below are some other players that can help fantasy owners who may be dealing with injuries. Donald Brown RB, SD Ryan Mathews suffered an MCL sprain and Read More
  • Week 2 Injury Breakdown

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Week 2 was filled with injuries. A lot of big names left games early due to injury. These types of weeks are as frustrating as it gets for fantasy owners. Below are some of this week’s injuries. Robert Griffin III – He left week two with a dislocated ankle. He will undergo MRI testing on Monday to see if surgery is required. Kirk Cousins stepped in for RG3 and played well. At this point, Griffin III is expected to miss some time. For those who own him, Cousins is a must add this week off waivers. A.J. Green Read More
  • Week 2 Start Em, Sit Em

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Quarterbacks Start of the Week Andy Dalton, CIN vs. ATL – Dalton quietly threw for 301 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens in Week 1. His performance wasn’t impressive, but he got the job done. This was his first 300+ yards game in a season opener. This week he takes on the Falcons defense that was ranked 27th against the pass in 2013 and gave up 333 yards and a touchdown to Drew Brees Week 1. Dalton should be able to connect with A.J. Green often this week and possibly throw for 300+ yards in back-to-back weeks. Read More
  • Working the Waiver Wire Week 2

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer It never fails; every season begins with surprising performances from players that were not expected to produce the numbers that they did. This year was no different as we had a couple of head turning performances from players who are not in most rosters. Another issue that fantasy owners deal with is injuries, and week one had a few. Doug Martin, Ben Tate, and Toby Gerhart (to name a few) got dinged up in Week 1. Below are some players that fantasy owners should be snagging off waivers. Terrence West, RB CLE West is owned in 80 Read More
  • Week 1 Injury Breakdown

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Doug Martin – He was in and out of the game against the Panthers in Week 1 with a leg injury. He had his lower left leg wrapped after the game and told reporters injured it when someone fell on it. The severity is not yet known. Martin rushed nine times for nine yards and caught a pass for seven yards. Bobby Rainey stepped in when Martin stepped out of the game. Ben Tate – He left Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh with a knee injury. It was unclear when the injury occurred so this could be a re-aggravation of Read More
  • Week 1 Start Em, Sit Em

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Quarterbacks Start of the Week Colin Kaepernick, SF at DAL – The 49ers will head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys who were one of the worst defenses last year. They didn’t do much to improve their defense this off-season and lost some key players as well. The Cowboys defense allowed 287 yards per game through the air last season and 33 passing touchdowns (tied for 2nd most). Kaepernick kicked off last season with a huge game. He threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns against the Packers. While it may be difficult to duplicate those numbers, Read More
  • Running Back Tiers

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Below you will find the running back tiers. LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte, and Jamal Charles are all elite backs. For the most part, they are the first four backs coming off the board on draft day. One player I was on the fence about is Eddie Lacy, and while I think he can finish close in fantasy points to the elite backs, I need to see him produce at a high level one more time to consider him a first tier. All other backs in the second tier are No. 1 fantasy RB’s. There are Read More
  • Stock Watch

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Below is a list of players whose fantasy stock has gone up or down. Now that many fantasy owners are drafting their teams, it’s good to know what players are making an impact during preseason. Stock Up Justin Hunter WR, Titans Hunter has been raved about this preseason. He had a big preseason game against the Saints where he caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Last season, Hunter showed some flashes of being a good receiver. In less than a month, Hunter’s ADP has moved up three rounds. Brandin Cooks WR, Saints This kid Read More
  • Same Faces, New Places

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Players find new homes every season. This off-season was no different with many players packing their bags and moving on to new cities. Sometimes the change is for the better, but sometimes it can be worrisome for fantasy owners. Below you’ll see some of the players who took their talents to a new team and the impact it could have on their fantasy season. Quarterbacks Josh McCown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers McCown started for the Bears in five games last year. He statistically had his best season of his career. In his five starts he averaged 309 yards Read More
  • Quarterback Tiers

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Tiers can be used to distinguish the value of a player at a specific position compared to others. Below are the quarterback tiers for this fantasy football season. Tier 1 Peyton Manning DEN Aaron Rodgers GB Drew Brees NO These three quarterbacks can almost be penciled in for over 4,750 yards and 40+ touchdowns. Manning was in a tier of his own last season. He broke most single season passing records. Prior to last season Rodgers finished top two in fantasy points every year since 2009. Brees is as consistent of a quarterback as you will find. Read More
  • That was Then, This is Now

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer In one of my previous draft strategy articles, I discussed preparation, approach and adjusting during a draft. Another ingredient for a successful draft is to think outside the box. What do I mean by this? Most fantasy owners do plenty of research, mock drafts, review ADP rankings, and go over many player rankings. If you look at my rankings, you may ask yourself why some of the players are ranked at a certain spot. While most owners refer to last season’s stats solely, I also take into account what a player could be this season. When drafting, Read More
  • Draft Day Mistakes to Avoid

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer It never fails. Every season on draft day, at least one fantasy owner makes a mistake while drafting. Sometimes, even a minor mistake, can make the difference between a playoff team and a championship team. This is why I’ve decided to write this article. Below I’ll list some common mistakes that fantasy owners should avoid on draft day. Filling out starting lineup Unless you’re in a league that requires having a specific amount of players in each position, there is no need to fill in you starting roster early. Take full advantage of the value you have Read More
  • Draft Strategy - Prepare, Approach and Adjustments

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer When you get that email from your fantasy football host letting you know that “your fantasy football league has been activated by your league commissioner”, you know it’s time to take your off-season research to the next level. You begin to read player news, research last year’s stats, and participate in mock drafts to get an idea of how people are drafting. Basically you get all of your research and notes together to answer one question. Who will I pick? However, before you determine this, you must know what pick you have heading into the season. Once Read More
  • How to Approach A Two-QB Draft

    Armando Marsal Fantasy Writer Over the last couple of years the NFL has become more of a pass-happy league and in fantasy football this translates to more value being emphasized on quarterbacks. In fact, some fantasy leagues have now become two quarterback formats or have added an offensive utility/flex spot where a fantasy owner can start a quarterback like in one of the leagues I participate in. When joining such leagues, there is a different type of strategy needed heading into the draft and fantasy owners need to make adjustments and adapt to this format quickly or you will find Read More
  • Over The Hill

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer Last year I turned 30 years old and while the age of 30 isn’t as bad as most would think, for an NFL running back 30 is considered “old.” Recent history tends to make an argument about that concept as some of the 30+ year old backs have had success. But for fantasy owners it can be concerning on drafting a running back who's been around for a while. If you do, handcuffing is a must. Below you’ll read about some backs who are 30 years or older and what I think they will do for fantasy Read More
  • Breaking Down the Rookie Class

    Armando MarsalFantasy Writer This year’s NFL draft came and went and now fantasy owners can begin prepping for their fantasy draft. It may be months away but over prepared is better than under prepared. Below are some of this year’s top drafted offensive rookies and what we think can be their fantasy impact. Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars Bortles was my favorite quarterback coming out of this year’s draft. He is a prototypical NFL QB that ran a pro-style offense in college. Bortles has good size, good football IQ, good pocket awareness and quick feet in the pocket, smooth release, accurate Read More

Player News

Martin back at practice

Doug Martin was in Tuesday's practice, and was running with the first-team offense, per Greg Auman on Twitter. This is great news for Martin and his fantasy owners. He struggled in Week 1 and Bobby Rainey did a good job filling in for him in Week 2. It’s unsure how the workload would be split up, but this is a great matchup for Martin. Fantasy owners can roll with him as a No. 2 RB if he plays.

Davis avoids serious injury

49ers tight end Vernon Davis avoided a significant left ankle injury, per the CSN Bay Area. A Monday MRI revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage. This is great news for Davis and the Niners. He was seen on crutches following Sunday night’s game. At this point fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. His Week 3 status is unknown, but there’s a chance he suits up. We will keep you posted on his status as we hear it.

Austin to miss about two weeks

Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin has been diagnosed with a sprained right MCL and is expected to miss about two weeks, per the NFL Network. We will keep you posted on his status, but Austin didn’t have much of a fantasy impact heading into Week 2.

RG3 possibly out 6-8 weeks

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III could miss 6-8 weeks with a dislocated ankle, per the NFL Network. An MRI Monday revealed no fracture. Kirk Cousins will start in Griffin’s absence. There have been reports that OC Jay Gruden is more content running the offense around Cousins. Therefore once Griffin returns to action, it’s unknown if he will regain the starting position. At this time, fantasy owners should keep Griffin stashed on their bench until further notice. 

Mathews to miss 4-5 weeks

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews has a sprained MCL that could keep him out 4-5 weeks, per the NFL Network. No surgery is required at this time. Donald Brown is expected to see a role increase in Mathews’ absence. Fantasy owners should pick up Brown off waivers.

Ingram to be out a month

Saints running back Mark Ingram will miss about a month with a hand, per Adam Schefter. This is a tough blow as he was having a great start to the season. He carried the ball 24 times for 143 yards and three touchdowns. The Saints will not lean on Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas. Fantasy owners should pick up Robinson off waivers.

Lewis expected to miss 6-8 weeks

Jaguars’ tight end Marcedes Lewis will be out 6-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain according to the NFL network. This is a tough blow for the Jaguars offense that lack offensive weapons. Fantasy owners in redraft formats can cut Lewis at this time.
