Remember, the Vikings, Steelers, Redskins and Buccaneers take their Bye this week. Last week was a mess in terms of “Straight Up” selections. As I went to click “Submit” and noticed I’d made an inordinately large number of road selections, there was a sinking feeling. That occurred well in advance of the Thursday Night Football [...]

The first four weeks of the NFL season are in the books. Some owners rolled to dramatic comebacks on the arm of Drew Brees or Jimmy Graham’s touchdown dunks. Some (maybe me) weren’t as lucky, absorbing narrow defeats with Mike Wallace’s smallish stat line and a missed 43-yard field goal from Garrett Hartley playing a [...]

It’s that time again. Last week, I went 10-6 Straight Up and 7-9 ATS. Alas, the sub-.500 mark dropped me to 23-25 for the season. Don’t forget – Carolina and Green Bay are off the board this week. It’s the first run into the annual Bye grind. I called the Rams-49ers game miserably. Bowman had [...]

I always preach patience in fantasyland. The knee-jerk reactions of fantasy owners to slow starts or muted single performances leave you with whiplash. Where possible, you keep a bench slot available to rotate out emerging players, stash a flier running back or pick up that spot-play defense. But, I’m already seeing huge churn on the [...]

The Raiders were obliterated by the Broncos on Monday Night Football, as Peyton Manning posted the highest completion of his career (more than 20 attempts). Eric Decker, Julius Thomas and Wes Welker all caught touchdown passes. Demaryius Thomas recorded 10 receptions, and the running backs reportedly played rock-paper-scissors to decide who got the goal-line carry. [...]

How did Week 3 treat you? Are you banking on a huge Monday night performance from Peyton Manning or members of his band of merry men? There was some good, some bad and some downright ugly play on the Sunday slate. Colin Kaepernick owners are wringing their hands following another terrible performance. The absence of [...]

Many pundits and commentators left the Browns for dead and “playing for 2014″ following the trade that sent tailback Trent Richardson to the Colts. While Richardson’s presence was felt on an early touchdown run in the Colts’ upset win over the 49ers, the Browns certainly didn’t roll over for the Vikings. For the second straight [...]

Harmon rolled into the FOXSports.com studios for this week’s “Inside Fantasy” segment which features several Tweets. After three weeks, many owners are already reaching for the panic button and are looking to shake things up. Video: Inside Fantasy: Twitter Questions Answered

It’s been a wild couple of weeks, and I’ve thankfully held my own. The record is 16-16 ATS with a 24-8 log straight up. This week, we have a number of home underdogs and point spreads on both ends of the spectrum. Anybody rolling Seattle giving nearly three touchdowns? Can Trent Richardson’s acquisition help fuel [...]

Last week, Anquan Boldin dominated the Packers and piled up targets and receptions. Boldin was virtually erased from the box score in Week 2 by Richard Sherman as the Seahawks smashed their division rival. The lasting images from the Week 2 opener between the Patriots and Jets were Tom Brady berating his receivers and Julian [...]

The second week of the NFL season came to a close with Cincinnati taking down division rival Pittsburgh by a 20-10 count on the strength of a two-touchdown performance by rookie Giovani Bernard. He stands among the top breakthrough performers. Alas, the news wasn’t as positive for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. After dominating [...]

Chuck Pagano announced that versatile running back Vick Ballard sustained a torn right ACL and will be placed on injured reserve. Ahmad Bradshaw (eight touches for 33 yards in Week 1) and former first-round pick Donald Brown will split the workload in Ballard’s absence. Brown averaged 4.7 yards per carry in the preseason, but he’s [...]

After a strong Week 1 (12-4 SU, 8-8 ATS), Harmon is back to fire up his selections for the games of Week 2 of the NFL season. The Jets are heavy underdogs against the Patriots on Thursday Night Football. Danny Amendola is out indefinitely (2-6 weeks) and Rob Gronkowski is still out, so can Tom [...]

Can Christian Ponder solve the Chicago defense? Which defense gives an inch in that highly anticipated Seattle-San Francisco game? Will that “must start against” option emerge in Week 2? Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

I know. There’s a small movement out there calling for the dismissal of the kicker position in standard fantasy leagues. I just can’t get on that train. You can’t tell me that the long-range attempts from Blair Walsh, Greg Zuerlein, Sebastian Janikowski and their colleagues don’t get you fired up. Fantasy Football Rankings powered by [...]

Put Peyton Manning’s seven touchdown passes against the Ravens aside for just a moment. Julius Thomas was the original trending topic as the 2013 NFL season kicked off last Thursday. OK, that whole banner issue was still on the wind, but that died down once the ball went up in the air. Thomas and Jordan [...]

Calvin Johnson was tackled eight times inside the five-yard line last season. He had two narrow misses in Week 1 to leave fantasy owners frustrated. Anquan Boldin dominated the Packers to lead all receivers, while Andre Johnson answered the naysayers with a big Monday night effort in a comeback against the Chargers. That DeAndre Hopkins [...]

You can only take a short breath before the next week creeps up on you. It seems like just mere moments ago that we were unwrapping the 2013 fantasy football season and treating those first snaps like a new toy at Christmas. We then watched the madness unfold with the Eagles and Redskins flying around [...]

Harmon returns with his Week 2 fantasy forecast at the running back position. Last week, owners were left wanting by Lamar Miller, Davis Wilson and Stevan Ridley. Will any of those young backs respond? Owners are certainly concerned about the early workload split between Arian Foster and Ben Tate on Monday night against the Texans [...]
