Week 4 Fantasy Football Rankings: Put up or shut up

We’re three weeks into the fantasy football season and the surprises just keep on coming. Cam Newton and Matthew Stafford are top-10 fantasy quarterbacks. Coe College alum Fred Jackson is the third best fantasy back. And how about Scott Chandler, who had one catch before this year, picking up four scores in the first three weeks. But much like business, it’s not what you did last week; it’s what are you going to do for me now. So let’s look into the crystal ball and find this weeks surprise, shall we?

Week 3 Fantasy Football Rankings: The Injury Bug Bites

It shouldn’t surprise any of us. In a game as violent as football, injuries are bound to happen. Top-5 pick Jamaal Charles is out for season. Miles Austin is out until October 16th. Let’s not even get started on Peyton Manning.  Much like their professional counterparts, fantasy owners need to find ways to fill the void left by their injured players. Included in this week’s rankings, I’ll list some guys that could step in for your injured star this week.

Week 2 Fantasy Football Rankings: Building on a strong week

If we learned one thing about the NFL in week one: the lockout certainly did not slow down the offensive numbers.  A ridiculous 14 quarterbacks had more than 300 yards, four of which went over 400. 13 receivers topped 100 yards, including seven double-digit touchdown performances. Needless to say, fantasy teams weren’t suffering. Now it’s time to build on that success and dominate week two of the fantasy season.

Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings: Football is Back!

We endured an offseason consisting of men in suits walking in and out of buildings. We endured a three-month stretch when the work “lockout” might as well have been preceded by a four-letter word. But courtrooms, politics, and league lawyers are now a thing of the past. Because ladies and gentleman, we’re finally here! The start of the NFL season is here!

Fantasy Football Experts Mock Draft:Round 7

fantasy football

Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 5 Round 6 Round 8

Round 7 Pick 1

Ryan Lester- Lester’s Legends

Pick: TE Brent Celek PHI

With essentially a rookie QB under center, Celek is going to be a security blanket for Kolb. I expect a lot of receptions and looks in the red zone.

Round 7 Pick 2

Vin Sadicario- FF Toolbox

Pick: QB Jay Cutler CHI

For as bad as Jay Cutler performed for the Bears last season, he still turned in a pretty good fantasy season. Mike Martz should be able to turn the Bears offense up another notch, and with Johnny Knox developing into a go to wide receiver, Cutler should be a top ten quarterback once again in 2010. I expect big things from Jay Cutler this season.

Round 4

1. Antonio Gates
2. Dallas Clark

Notes: I suppose you could make a case for drafting a TE in the fourth round for PPR-leagues, but I tend to grab a TE no earlier than round 5…..With V-Jax suspended and possibly holding-out for the season, Gates looks to have a huge role once again for the Chargers.
