One of the best things about fantasy football is that there is always next season. Well that “next season” is almost here. I suggest you start thinking about a creative name for your team, and start planning your fantasy football draft strategy. It is always fun to play GM for a couple of hours.Read More
The Carolina Panthers passing offense was ranked in the bottom half of the league in 2014. They averaged only 219.4 passing yards per game and 21.2 points per game. The Panthers passing offense struggled because of the lack of quality receivers, and the ever reliable running game. The offense being one dimensional wasn't a problem until the Panthers lost to the Seattle Seahawks 31-17 in in the NFC Divisional Playoff game.Read More
Who can't wait for fantasy football? This guy! The fantasy football season isn't here yet, but it's getting close. When developing your draft strategy don't forget about creating a plan to draft a top-tier tight end. You can normally only start one tight end in your lineup, so make sure you draft a player that will average double digit fantasy points.Read More
There is no offseason when it comes to football. Even though the 2014 NFL season officially ended on February 2nd, the 2015 NFL season started the very next day. The NFL has seen busy with re-signings, contract extensions, releases, free agency signings, mock draft predictions, and more.Read More
Well this is a sad time for a lot of you, and a happy time for some of you. You might be sad because fantasy football is coming to an end, and that means that you will have to actually work at work. You might also be sad because your team did horrible this season. You might be happy because you are either playing in your league's championship game, or you already won. Congratulations if you made it this far! Getting to the championship and winning is a great accomplishment. Repeating next season, is even tougher.
The Carolina Panthers are currently on a two game winning streak, and they still have a chance to win the NFC South. This is crazy, because two weeks ago they were getting a top five draft pick. Before the Panthers winning streak, their two main weaknesses were the defense, and the offensive line. But this has changed over the past two games. Which Panthers team will show up this week..... Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde?
My Week 16 Projections:
*Cam Newton: 21 pts (225 passing yards 2 touchdowns, 40 rushing yards)
Derek Anderson: 17 pts (240 passing Yards 2 touchdowns)
Greg Olsen: 14 pts (80 receiving yards, 1 touchdown)
Kelvin Benjamin: 13 pts (75 receiving yards, 1 touchdown)
Jonathan Stewart: 13 pts (75 rushing yards, 1 touchdown)
Philly Brown: 9 pts (35 receiving yards, 1 touchdown)
Panthers Defense: 8 pts
Jerricho Cotchery: 4 pts (45 receiving yards)
My Week 16 Recommendations:
Must Starts: Kelvin Benjamin, Jonathan Stewart, and Greg Olsen
50/50 Start: Panthers Defense, Derek Anderson or Cam Newton
Sit: Philly Brown, and Jerricho Cotchery
The Cleveland Browns are trending downwards, and are now relying on “Johnny Football” to save their season. The Browns are currently on a three game losing streak, and are 7-7. Johnny Football made his first start, and had the worst game of his career. Who is going to show up against the Carolina Panthers?
The Carolina Panthers are going to have their hands full this week with “Johnny Football,” Josh Gordon, and the Browns defense. Both teams are hungry, but I think the Panthers are hungrier. Manziel needs to be worried, because “it's feedin time!” I would not play either quarterback this week. Cam is not 100% and you don't know what to expect from DA every week. Greg Olsen is a top five fantasy tight end, and Kelvin Benjamin is always a must start. Jonathan Stewart has turned into a decent flex play option, and a possible RB2. He is the number one running back for the Panthers, and the Browns have one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFL. Brown and Cotchery should remain on your bench. Panthers defense could be a good play if Manziel continues to struggle.
Will “Johnny Football” be in the end zone or on the ground more this week?

Another week of fantasy football playoffs down the drain, and I finally lost. No thanks to Peyton Manning and his 2 fantasy points. Both of my running backs were injured this past week, so I had to start Doug "Waste of a Pick" Martin, and Chris "Disappearing Act" Johnson. They got me a combined total of 8 fantasy points. As the fantasy season continues it is harder to win games, because of all the injuries. Could you imagine if the league increased the length of the season? If you are dealing with injuries you need to pay attention to who is going to be the new starter, and cross your fingers that someone else wont pick them up on the waiver wire.Read More
I hope that you made it past the first round of your fantasy football playoffs. I squeaked by with a two point victory! My team struggled because Peyton Manning decided to take the week off, and Andre Ellington got hurt again. This is what happens when the season is almost over and the playoffs are on the way. This is a big problem with fantasy football. If you are the commissioner you need to start the playoffs earlier to make sure that your team is healthier, and giving 100% effort.Read More
Did you make the playoffs in your league? If so, congratulations! Making the playoffs isn’t easy with all of the injuries, suspensions, and bye weeks. You worked hard to get to this point, so don’t slip up now! Start players who are sure things, and trust your gut when you’re picking between two players.
The Carolina Panthers were going downhill real fast, so their bye week was a much needed breather. The Panthers have the opportunity to go into Minnesota and beat the 4-7 Vikings. Adrian Peterson is out for the season, so that’s one less thing to worry about. Who should you start this week?
My Week 13 Projections:
- Cam Newton: 22 pts (215 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 25 rushing yards)
- Kelvin Benjamin: 15 pts (92 yards, 1 touchdown)
- Greg Olsen: 12 pts (60 yards, 1 touchdown)
- Philly brown: 9 pts (30 yards, 1 touchdown)
- Jonathan Stewart: 9 pts (35 rushing yards, 1 touchdown)
- Jerricho Cotchery: 6 pts (60 yards)
- DeAngelo Williams: 5 pts (53 rushing yards)
- Panthers Defense: 4 pts
My Week 13 Recommendations:
Must Start: Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen
Sit: Cam Newton, DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, and Jerricho Cotchery
Week 13 Sleepers: Panthers Defense, Philly Brown
The Minnesota Vikings are struggling to win like the Carolina Panthers. The Vikings best game of the season was a 34-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams, and their worst game was a 42-10 loss against the Green Bay Packers. The Vikings won against the Rams with Adrian Peterson, but since his suspension they have only beat teams that are under .500.
If you want a good chance at winning your matchup, you should start Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin. If they are sitting on your bench, you might be missing out on some quality points. Benjamin and Olsen get a lot of targets, and should have more opportunities to score against the Vikings. Cam Newton has the potential to have a break out game, but he is not a sure thing yet. You don’t want to risk it at this point. If you need to fill your flex position, I would pick up Philly Brown. Brown is a deep threat and might be used like Ted Ginn Jr. If the Panthers defense can put pressure on Teddy Bridgewater, the rookie will make some mistakes. Do NOT start the running backs. Good luck!
What is your playoff seed?
