The Minnesota Vikings offensive line has shown plenty of growth since last season. It wasn't the line that created the issues displayed by Kirk Cousins in week 2. That was all about Cousins.
Welcome to overreaction week. Every year, we go crazy over week 1 results, only to be shocked when that same team that looked unstoppable in week 1 didn't necessary perform to that same standard in week 2.
Do you know who led the NFL in week 1 passing yardage? If it would take a few moments, we couldn't blame you. Andy Dalton held that distinction with 418 yards and still just finished 11th in fantasy scoring among quarterbacks.
For the most part, injuries were avoided in week 1 of the NFL season, making the week 2 waiver wire a little less important in that regard.
The obsession with wide receivers in fantasy football has subsided. Now it's time to find wide receivers who can be consistent in attracting targets.
Had it not been for a historic loss by Minnesota to Buffalo last season, I would have gone undefeated through the 2018 Survivor Pool season.
Two of the biggest names in fantasy football will not make an appearance in week 1. Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon will not be on the field in week 1 and may not be seen for several weeks.
Value isn't only a necessary part of drafting in the later rounds. There's plenty of value in the first part of fantasy football drafts, too.
We're still not a point where there's enough evidence to fully support two-start pitchers. But with the growing number of games we've seen this year, we're starting to get a better glimpse of who is having a solid season as a starter and which teams are going to continue to struggle hitting …
The NFL rarely takes a break from the national spotlight and with the recent release of the schedule, it’s natural to start thinking about win totals.
The first few weeks of the regular season are tough on deciding who can be a quality two-start pitcher. It's not just the pitchers who are unknown. It's also the opposing offenses.
This year's NCAA tournament wasn't living up to its billing heading into the Elite Eight. Then, the tournament took a dramatic turn in the right direction.
The baseball season is back, so that means it's time to ditch those pitchers you drafted and start combing the waiver wire.
I shouldn't like Villanova as much as I do, but I just can't help it. The Wildcats have been a perennial top team in college basketball over the last few years and this may be Jay Wright's best coaching job.
The Midwest region feels like a wide-open bracket. With all the parity happening in college basketball this season, there's not a team in this bracket that seems like an overwhelming favorite.
It's officially time to stop paying attention to work for a few weeks and start penciling in the best bracket busters and favorites to win the 2019 NCAA tournament.
March Madness always provides plenty of opportunities for finding Cinderellas. While the first two rounds will offer plenty of upsets, the key to lasting success in handicapping the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament is finding the right sleeper to win the title.
Like it or not, Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster will be heavily debated heading into the 2019 fantasy football season.
After a year where we saw multiple rookie quarterbacks earn meaningful playing time, we're entering an NFL draft that will come closer to the 2013 NFL draft class for quarterbacks, as opposed to what occurred last season.
There's still plenty of time before the 2019 fantasy football season commences, but I'm already seeing some holes in the third round of the fantasy football draft.
A lot of things can happen in the next few months to change these early 2019 fantasy football rankings. Even with the regular season barely over, it's still worth it to start investigating who will offer some serious value heading into the 2019 fantasy football season.
We're not even to the Super Bowl yet, but there's an opportunity to get a head start on the 2019 fantasy football season.
In what would have been against the norm, oddsmakers posted the Los Angeles Rams as the opening line favorite for Super Bowl 53. That quickly changed.
It didn't take many games this season to realize that the NFC title would go through one of two teams - the New Orleans Saints or Los Angeles Rams.
Unlike the Wild Card round, the favorites owned the day in the divisional round. Three of the four games were covered by the favorites. This weekend should offer some more intrigue, with all these teams being evenly matched.
Can underdogs rule the day again in the AFC? It didn't take much imagination to believe in underdogs in the Wild Card round in the AFC. Los Angeles and Indianapolis had just as good regular seasons or even better than their opponents last week.
