2014 Fantasy Football Sleeper Picks – QB

2014 Fantasy Football Sleeper Picks – QB

The talent pool at quarterback is at an all-time high and appears to be as populated as a New York subway. No longer are you left with such a large drop off from the top two tiers. The apparent big three behind center are Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, with great options behind them in guys like Andrew Luck, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan and Colin Kaepernick. We’ve seen that there is no definitive top tier, with the consensus as undecided as a college freshman.

I’ve seen Stafford as high as four and Rodgers as low as five and we’ll continue to see changes as the season approaches. As for sleepers at the position, you may be looking for a solid value pick late to acquire more talent at the skill positions, or you may be looking to add the best possible insurance policy just in case your starter pulls an Aaron Rodgers of last year and you don’t want to be left with your pants around your ankles.

Whatever the case may be, there’s a sleeper QB on the following list that’s worth the investment.

2014 Fantasy Football Sleeper Quarterbacks

Philip Rivers, SD

There were only two quarterbacks who were among the top six in yards per game, touchdown passes, touchdown percentage (pct. of TDs thrown when attempting to pass) and yards per attempt. Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers being those two players. After being written off as washed up before last season, the 32-year-old Rivers stuck it to the doubters and managed to make due with an above average receiving crew on a pas-heavy offense, throwing for 4,478 yards and 32 touchdowns. Another offseason with Keenan Allen should allow them both to improve on their 2013 totals and tight end Ladarius Green should certainly help. With Rivers going off the board in most drafts around the ninth or tenth round, consider taking him as early as the eighth ahead of guys like Tony Romo, Russell Wilson and even Cam Newton.

How Do You Play Fantasy Football – for Beginners

How Do You Play Fantasy Football – for Beginners

So… You finally decided to get off the sidelines and start playing the game that has all your friends and co-workers buzzing. The only problem is you have no idea what fantasy football is and how to participate. So how do you play fantasy football? Your friends at Fantasy Couch have the answer! We’re here to explain the basic rules and strategies that will get you in position to compete in your first league.

How does fantasy football work

For starters, fantasy football is much like the real game, only you are the owner of a team of players who you draft in order to play other team owners in your league. You can draft any player from any NFL team as long as another owner didn’t draft him already. Leagues are usually comprised of 8-16 teams, but you can also play in weekly leagues where you draft a new team every week. We recommend not playing in daily or weekly leagues if it’s your first time.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Waivers for August

2014 Fantasy Baseball Waivers for August

With just a handful of weekly matchups left in the regular season, many fantasy owners are already facing “must win” situations. Missing the playoffs can not only be heartbreaking, but quite embarrassing as well. Below are some over-achieving players in which we deem worthy of adding to your roster in pursuit of making it to the post-season. Good Luck!

Fantasy baseball players to add for August, 2014

Josh Reddick, Oak OF

If you were one of those unfortunate fantasy owners who drafted Reddick last season, then you probably went out of your way to stay away from him in 2014. The Athletics’ outfielder seems to have much more success at the plate without his distracting beard getting in the way. The 27-year-old hurt himself earlier in the year but hit .353 with four homers, 10 runs batted in and 11 runs scored in just over 50 at-bats since returning from the disabled list on July 22nd.
