Week 16 Start ‘em

Tony Romo, Dal QB

Do you remember the time when you couldn’t start Tony Romo when the calendar turned to December? Seems like it was years ago. This December he has been the most reliable option to plug in at quarterback, and is a must-start this week with the fantasy championship on the line.

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 15

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 15

There were plenty of ugly stat lines from guys who are heavily owned and relied upon at this point of the fantasy playoffs. As an owner in the postseason, you typically want to roll with the player who ‘got you here’, but that can backfire as well. See evidence below…

Top 5 Fantasy Woes of Week 15

1. Aaron Rodgers

For the second straight week, the Buffalo Bills limited one of the game’s best quarterbacks to less than 200 yards passing and zero touchdowns. Last week it was Peyton Manning and this week it was Rodgers, who was also intercepted by the Bills twice. The Packers’ receivers didn’t help the cause as they collectively dropped seven passes, which is the most by any team since 2008.

Fantasy Basketball Tips – Waiver Adds and Trade Targets

Fantasy Basketball Tips – Waiver Adds and Trade Targets

As fantasy owners, sometimes we concentrate too heavily on high draft picks not producing at the level of our expectations, and site those who are chipping in on a smaller scale, but have proven to be serviceable nonetheless. The players mentioned in this post will most likely not even be owned in half the leagues on ESPN and Yahoo. And that is okay because you want the other owners to have no idea who these guys are, or the depths of their value. Depending on the league, and team needs, I could see myself trading for two of these lesser-known commodities, for a recognizable name that hasn’t been producing. Lamenting over bad games is only going to stress you out and bring you a lot more L’s than W’s in the process. So, let’s get into some sub-stars who are keeping your teams in the positive side of the standings.

Fantasy Basketball Injury Report

Fantasy Basketball Injury Report

Injuries suck, it’s just that simple, but sitting around crying about it won’t make your player heal any faster. The only thing you can do is decide whether to drop the hurt player, try and trade the hurt player or ride it out until he returns. This decision should come down to three main factors: how good is the hurt player, how long will he be out and how well your team is playing. The better the player, the longer you can stash him until he’s ready to return. Also, the better your fantasy team is doing, the longer you can afford to hang on to an injured player. Teams ranked near the bottom of their league might want to consider moving on from an injured player sooner than a team ranked near the top. So let’s stop the crying and start making some moves.

NBA Fantasy Basketball Injury Updates

Ricky Rubio, Min PG

This one hurt. The Spanish sensation will be sidelined until January. Look for Mo Williams and Zack Lavine to run the show in Minnesota while Rubio is out. It will be hard to find any value in a trade, so if your team is doing well (ride-it-out), if not, a (drop) might be your only option.
