Adentro y Afuera, Week 8 WR/TE

How special was last Sunday for Tyler Lockett and Davante Adams? It seemed that whatever got thrown up in the air fell into their hands, and the pair combined for nearly 400 yards passing and 5 TDs.

Adentro y Afuera, Week 8 QUARTERBACKS

I remember Jim Kelly in the 80s and 90s would talk about the wind whipping in Buffalo’s home stadium. It was called “the Hawk,” and it slowed down many passes by some of the best QBs of the era.

Adentro y Afuera, Week 8 RUNNING BACKS

It’s November. The leaves have turned. Temperatures are dropping. Derrick Henry is licking his chops at the thought of punishing defenders. The RB position becomes that much more important as defenses that have been hit with injuries become more susceptible to the run.

LOS WAIVERS, WEEK 8: CHASING CHASE 2.0

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about dropping Cam Newton. Really? Bueno, for a good number of leagues, it makes sense. If you’re in 2-QB or Super Flex leagues, forget about it. Just say no. But in a single-QB league, it has to be taken into account that Cam hasn’t sniffed the QB1 range since his Week 2 blowup against the Seahawks.

LOS WAIVERS, WEEK 7: IT’S TUA TIME!

Here we are. Week 7, pretty much half-way through the fantasy regular season. We’ve learned a lot about teams and players that we were hyping and downplaying during the offseason.

Adentro y Afuera, Week 6 QUARTERBACKS

Now that we’ve got 5 games in, we have a good enough sample size. We know that Aaron Rodgers is much better than many had him projected to be. There’s some question about whether Lamar Jackson was worth the high draft pick. Cam Newton is fairly clearly the best value pick among the QBs.

Los Waivers Week 6: Chasing Chase & Streaming for Dak

As I write this, it’s hard to get the image of Dak Prescott’s gruesome injury out of my head. This is on a par with Joe Theisman (also on MNF), Napoleon McCallum and in baseball, Moises Alou. So glad he got immediate care from one of the leading surgeons, so we’re all hoping for him to attack his rehab as well as he did the Washington defense.

Adentro y Afuera, Week 5 QUARTERBACKS

You bucked all the expert advice to fade Aaron Rodgers, now you’re reaping the benefit. Or you banked on Matthew Stafford building off the dominant 8 weeks he had before his season was derailed due to a back injury. And there are those of you feeling uneasy about Josh Allen’s availability with the Titans-Bills game moved to Tuesday (and hopefully no further out).

Quarter Quandaries: Los Waivers, Week 5

OK, a quarter of the season is in the books. No more talk of small sample sizes. We’ve now had 25% of the season done. These players are either who they are, or well on the way to becoming who they are. What’s interesting, several rookie WR have either already broken out or on the cusp.
