Though he left Monday Night Football early with a hamstring injury, it doesn’t seem to be a big deal for Tyreek Hill. This is great news for fantasy. It wasn’t great to see him exit the game early on Monday Night Football vs. the Los Angeles Chargers at Estadio Azteca, but there is good news
The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans are the NFL’s most boring rivalry. They will be meeting for the 51st time on Sunday afternoon. Exciting.

With an increased role in Week 11, and Le’Veon Bell banged up, Bilal Powell is back on the fantasy football radar. Once upon a time (ok, 2016), Bilal Powell finished as RB16 in full-point PPR fantasy scoring. The following season also wasn’t too bad, as he came in as RB29 in full-point PPR. But a
With fantasy football season hitting the home stretch, if you have to pick up a wide receiver off waivers, it has to be DeVante Parker of the Miami Dolphins. Week 12 of the 2019 NFL season is upon us. That means there are only a few weeks left of fantasy football season. The playoffs are
With the injury sustained by Tua Tagovailoa in Alabama’s win this Saturday, it could lead to the former No.1 prospect falling out of the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The NFL season has been quite the roller coaster, as teams have come out of nowhere to become playoff contenders, and some are still
As slow as it’s moving, now is the time to get on the Kalen Ballage fantasy football bandwagon. With first-team reps early in training camp, Kalen Ballage was easy to point to as a deep fantasy sleeper this year. The depth chart has cleared out for him slowly but surely, with Kenyan Drake traded to
As Ron Rivera’s tenure seems to be near a bitter end, here are five candidates to be the next head coach of the Carolina Panthers. The shine of “Riverboat Ron” is all gone. With a 29-3 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11, the Carolina Panthers are now 5-5 this season. From an 0-2
San Francisco 49ers owner John York claims that a three-game preseason followed by a 17-game regular season may decrease injuries. Is this true?

As the NFL season nears the stretch run, several surprising free agents remain available, showing just how unexpectedly a career can end.

Jared Goff is not helping the Los Angeles Rams contend for a third-straight NFC West title this year. Is it time to drop him entirely in fantasy football? If you watched Sunday Night Football in Week 11 when the Los Angeles Rams hosted the Chicago Bears, then I’m sorry. That was a pitiful game that
Calvin Ridley just had his best fantasy football performance of the season vs. the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Here is why that good play will continue. The Atlanta Falcons have semi-shocked the NFL world in the last few weeks. They were 1-7 on the season entering their bye week. Atlanta has gone on to play
Deshaun Watson had a chance to bolster his MVP candidacy in Baltimore. Instead, he saw it implode in a crushing defeat. Todd Bouman Division 32. Ryan Finley (LW: 31) Finley was horrendous against the Raiders. Nothing against the kid, but he’s a backup at best, and probably not even that. 31. Jeff Driskel (LW: 32)
Philip Rivers does not have it anymore. He threw four picks on Monday Night Football and the Los Angeles Chargers need to draft his replacement in 2020. The 2004 NFL quarterback class was something special. There are three guys that will earn gold jackets and have busts in Canton in the next decade or so.
The Kansas City Chiefs hold on vs. the Los Angeles Chargers down in Mexico City by picking Philip Rivers off four times to stay in control of the AFC West. The Kansas City Chiefs needed a win badly. Frankly, so did the Los Angeles Chargers. With them squaring off in Mexico City of all places
Monday Night Football should be fun. Too bad Estadio Azteca’s turf is making a mockery of the NFL. It’s almost as bad as Neyland Stadium’s a few years back. Are you ready for some football?

If Marvin Lewis makes a return to the NFL as a head coach next season, he may be a candidate for these five possible openings. As the Cincinnati Bengals fell to 0-10 on Sunday, and became the first team officially eliminated from the playoffs this year, the work Marvin Lewis did there as head coach

The Cincinnati Bengals fall to 0-10 on the season after losing to the Oakland Raiders, signifying this is might be the worst team in franchise history.
