I’ve been traveling this week in the pursuit of Fantasy Football greatness. So, some of the tidbits and barbs launched across the sporting world have escaped my radar. However, a cursory search of the day’s events and a quick trip into the Twitterverse yielded many 140-character quick-hits on the new Aaron Hernandez feature in Rolling [...]

Over the next several days, I’m rolling back to the 2012 numbers to point out the prowess (and struggles) of fantasy options. He’s a quick look at selected running backs and their median scoring in standard [...]

Harmon completed a huge feat this past week, driving all around the West coast to visit training camps in San Diego, Santa Clara (49ers), Glendale and Oxnard. That’s a lot of driving, coffee and time alone on the open road. To finish up Sunday’s visit to Oxnard and the Dallas Cowboys, Harmon got a chance [...]

Call me a nerd. I love to watch shows about how things work. Those who have followed my ranting on this site and FOX Sports Radio and past stops in the media world know that I love to cook. I’m able to claim some proficiency in chemistry by doing so (pad your stats). I don’t [...]

Early on Monday, I offered fantasy owners the opportunity for a rare interactive experience. No, we take plenty of calls, texts and Tweets throughout the week and on the Sunday morning FOX Sports Radio show. I posted the link to the “Fighting Chance Fantasy Mock Draft” in which I was scheduled to participate. The invite [...]

The Tigers ranked among the preseason favorites to make a run to the World Series on expectations of huge things from the offense and the Verlander/Scherzer/Fister/Sanchez starting quartet. The one question facing Jim Leyland and Detroit coming out of spring training was the closer role. Hard-throwing Bruce Rondon was on the board for a potential [...]

Harmon’s Podcast 7.23 puts him back behind the microphone to discuss the Ryan Braun suspension and the state of Major League Baseball. Results can be achieved through better chemistry and, let’s face it, there’s a ridiculous financial incentive to discover the next great thing. But, Major League Baseball will not be deterred. The question of [...]

It’s that most wonderful time of the year. We’re rapidly approaching the opening of training camps across the NFL landscape. Many teams are taking their work in-house with a sprinkling of public dates to whet the collective appetite. That means that it’s time to start rolling out the 2013 Fantasy Football Draft Guide. It all [...]

It’s time to sound the horn on the start of the 2013 Fantasy Football season. Harmon’s First-Take 2013 Fantasy Football WR Rankings are here. As with the Tight End and Running Back positions, there is absolutely zero debate to be had about which players leads this position. Calvin Johnson was tackled eight times inside the [...]

The tight end position is deep with quality fantasy options this season. However, the top of the board has been impacted greatly in the past month. Sure, Jimmy Graham is still there at the top of the board. Fantasy owners must decide whether to draft Rob Gronkowski and quickly return to the position for a [...]

Don’t mock the position. Kickers are still a part of most fantasy leagues. Sure, there’s a movement to eliminate the position from consideration. It hasn’t happened yet. If you get the huge scoring bonuses for long-distance kicks, there Greg Zuerlein probably bounces up your draft board. Without a lot of buildup, here are Harmon’s First-Take [...]

It’s a year of change in 2013. The longtime heroes of fantasy defenses, Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis, have entered retirement. Ed Reed is playing with the Texans, who have the freakishly athletic J.J. Watt leading the charge. How quickly will Brian Cushing get back in the mix? Let’s light up the rankings and let [...]

As you know, “The Fantasy Freaks” on FOX Sports Radio embrace all types of social media outlets and celebrate the huge pops and trending topics in the Twitterverse.

Forget the ratings for a moment (0.4), SharkNado was one of the most enjoyable times I’ve had in front of a television for while a while. I loved the second-screen viewing experience that it became in the Twitterverse, as many of the nation’s greatest, most accomplished sportswriters came together to entertain the masses. There were [...]

It’s easy to be cynical given the seemingly unending flow of sad, sobering news and information received through our phones, televisions and social media outlets. I regularly read the newspapers of my hometown of Chicago, and many headlines refer to the litany of shootings in the city at large. So, it’s always a welcome sight [...]

From my early introduction to sports, I was made aware of the loud and abrasive commentary that would be hurled in the direction of referees and officials.
