2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 15

The playoffs are afoot and you still may still have a few needs to fill.

You could be in need of a quarterback if you had Carson Wentz, who tore his ACL. You may also need streaming options for defenses, tight ends or flex spots in your lineup. You can never be too comfortable with your roster, since a guy on the waiver wire could have an unreal match-up this weekend. 

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 15 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo.

I want to explain what I mean by “sit” and “start.” Of course you are going to start some of the guys i say to bench this week, because you probably used high draft picks or a lot of money in an auction for them. My ‘sit’ players are guys I am just not completely sold that they will have good weeks. If you have a guy that you are on the fence about, maybe this will help you pick between the players.

Who Will Win the NFL MVP This Season?

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz looked like he was a shoo-in for the MVP award this season. They were 10-2 going into last week and had the lead against the Rams when Wentz went down with an knee injury. Unfortunately for the Eagles, he has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of this season and possibly the start of next year.

Now that he’s most likely out of the race with three regular season games to go, there is no clear-cut favorite to win the MVP this season.

We look at the top betting favorites and decide if any are worth putting a few jellybeans down on them.

Can Wentz still win the MVP, even though he won’t play the final three games?

2017 NFL Week 14 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Even though I missed the Thursday game (again), I still finished the week 9-5-2. I forgot to update last week’s post since there wasn’t a line for last week’s Tampa Bay game at the time I wrote the post. I marked it up as a tie, just to keep things on track with past year-to-year win totals. 

I missed on a few underdogs with both the Browns and Seahawks performing better than the lines would suggest.

There are a lot of close point spreads this week. There is only one double-digit game and the rest are at or under a touchdown. This could be a difficult week to handicap.

Another speed bump we must navigate is the fact that the lion’s share of the games aren’t division games, so they are first-time meetings.

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 14

This could be the last week to get your team into the playoffs.

Even if you feel like your lineup is solid, I still recommend streaming defenses, kickers and flex options go week-to-week. It’s really hard to win in fantasy these days if you don’t tinker with your lineup every week to some extent.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson.

2017 NFL Week 13 – Betting Picks Against Spread

I had a perfect Thanksgiving last week. After struggling on Thursday games like it was my freakin’ job, I went 3 for 3 on Thanksgiving. I started out hot on Sunday as well, but finished the week with a 9-6-1.

The perfect Thanksgiving was a bit unexpected, but really needed. I should go back to see what my Thursday record is, but I’m almost afraid.

There are some pretty cool games coming up this weekend. A few division games that could be the difference in who wins their division.

Can the Giants find success with QB Geno Smith starting over Eli Manning?

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 13 of the 2017 NFL season.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 13

Most fantasy football leagues start the playoffs next week. This week could be the last week to push your way into the winner’s bracket.

Most teams already have their starting lineup set in stone. I still use streaming defenses, kickers and most of my flex options go week-to-week. It’s really hard to win in fantasy these days if you don’t tinker with your lineup every week to some extent.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 13 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson.

2017 NFL Week 12 – Betting Picks Against Spread

I had a pretty sad all around betting experience last weekend. I was rocked in college football and was just so-so in the NFL. I hit on a nice parlay that saved the weekend.

I’ve historically done very well on Thanksgiving. I’ve went a perfect three-for-three in many years. I can’t promise that will happen this season as Thursday games are the bane of my existence. It’s becoming a gimmick at this point.

There are quite a few double-digit point spreads this week. We will see more and more of those as teams start to drop out of playoff contention.

Can I win a damn Thursday game? Let’s do this!

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 12

Yay! No more freakin’ bye weeks! A few of those weeks were rough, but we all hopefully survived.

Injuries are still happening at an alarming rate and the injuries to Washington RB Chris Thompson and even Miami QB Jay Cutler (in super deep leagues) can really mess with a roster. We hope to give you some streaming options for the week.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our oddball triumphant MS Paint masterpiece of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
