Fantasy Football Update
Posted: December 02, 2015

Hopefully everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving break. It was arguably one of the best breaks I have ever had. I ate way too much, I got to see the Packers lose to the Bears on Thanksgiving night (and almost see my brother-in-law cry), the cheating Patriots finally lost and my Vikings regained control of the NFC North with a win over the Falcons. If your break wasn’t as good as mine, hopefully your fantasy week was. There is one game left in most leagues’ regular seasons, playoffs are looming and my teams are ugly.

Fantasy Football Update
Posted: November 18, 2015

Keeping in line with how I started last week; down go the Bengals. We are down to two undefeated teams, the Patriots and the Panthers. Of those two teams, I think the Patriots have the better chance to stay undefeated. There continues to be talk of Cam Newton being a MVP candidate, but in my opinion he is still too shaky, and considering he is a “runner”, he could get knocked out of a game very easily.

Fantasy Football Update
Updated: November 11, 2015 - 6:34 pm

Down go the Broncos, and with that we only have three undefeated teams left in the NFL. If you are fortunate enough to still be undefeated in your fantasy league, my hat is off to you. Fantasy football wins and losses can be very similar to that of an actual NFL team. If one guy has an off week, it can throw the whole team off. On the other hand, if one player has a monster of a game, he can carry his team to victory. When it comes to fantasy, and actual football, the key to winning is consistency.
