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 NFC South struggled last season in the fantasy football department. There were only six players that finished the 2014 season (Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, and Greg Olsen) ranked in the top 10 for their positions overall. Drew Brees took a small step back and was the sixth ranked quarterback with 302.98 fantasy points. Greg Olsen had a great year and was the 4th ranked tight end. The biggest surprise was the positive impact of rookie wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin, and Mike Evans.
Now that the NFL Draft is over which NFC South rookies will have the biggest fantasy football impact?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!
