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.
The NFL season has its share of ups and downs, and 2018 once again proved that. I finished with a near .500 record, going just one game over .500 for the regular season.
I'm limping into the final week of the season, trying to finish with an above .500 record in the Las Vegas Westgate SuperContest.
The final week in the NFL is finally upon us, so that means many Survivor Pool participants are finished for the season.
With just two games remaining, the season is all about which teams have given up, and which are still going to play out the season.
Finding reliable wide receivers has been a difficult chore in fantasy football this season. With championship week here, it doesn't get any easier on who to trust at the wide receiver position.
My favorites have done well over the last few weeks with a speed bump in week 14. After an abysmal start to my NFL favorites, they've been good enough to get me over .500 for the year. Let's just hope last week's woes won't continue.
The hot streak continued in the Survivor Pool, with another victory in week 14. It wasn't easy, like it had been in recent weeks, but New Orleans battled back from an 11-point halftime deficit to keep the Survivor Pool streak alive.
You have to wonder what's happening in Oakland. Khalil Mack has been a dominating force this year after being traded to the Bears, and now Amari Cooper, who looked like a shell of his former self in Oakland, has resurrected his career in Dallas.
In a week where Josh Johnson and Ryan Tannehill were top-five fantasy quarterbacks, the fantasy football playoffs got off to a surprising start.
With just four weeks to go, the final quarter of the season is mostly about which teams will quit, and which will work to keep playing.
Finding a consistent wide receiver who can be a WR1 is becoming more difficult by the week. Antonio Brown and Keenan Allen showcased some flashes of potential in week 13, but it still couldn't pass Dante Pettis as the top wide receiver from week 13.
This week doesn't offer much in terms of value with favorites. However, there should be some opportunities to find a few teams that can offer some assistance in the SuperContest.
Other than one horrendous week in the last five weeks, my NFL picks have been on point. That's especially true with my underdogs.
My SuperContest hot streak came crashing to a halt in week 11. A 1-4 ATS week was close to being better, but unfortunately I can't find teams with kickers who can actually convert field goals.
Week 11 was a tough week on many fronts. With small spreads and several teams on bye, the week was a true test of any Survivor Pool.
Prepare for some high-volume fantasy football production from wide receivers in the Atlanta vs. New Orleans matchup in week 12.
