It’s time for another run inside the fantasy universe. These are the early Week 5 Rankings ahead of the Thursday night game between the Packers and Vikings. Teddy Bridgewater sits, thereby putting Christian Ponder back on the radar. Can he get the deep threats involved?
Mike Harmon of SwollenDome.com rolls up a quick preview of the Thursday opener. All the yapping is over.
As we know, the fantasy football world is stacked with pundit and scribes looking for clever phrasing to complete their analysis. I would raise my hand and proudly declare myself to be one of those analysts seeking to make a point with a (sometimes) witty analogy or turn of phrase. Well, that point has not […]
I always look forward to these reports. Every year, the firm of Challenger, Gray and Christmas puts out reports about the impact of hobbies and sporting events on the economy. We see it for the NCAA Tournament run each and every March. Well, the fantasy football report is in. The firm estimates a robust total […]
I participated in an “Expert” league at the start of the summer hosted on MyFantasyLeague.com. It’s a 20-slot, 12-owner, “Best Ball” type of league. That is to say, we draft the league and watch things unfold without an ability to shift, substitute or replaced injured (or dare I say, suspended) players. So, here’s a snapshot […]
Enjoy the next round of World Cup competition. Save the endless spinning of the NBA Free Agency wheel. And hope that the offseason (pre-training camp) NFL chatter circles back to talk of camp battles instead of bathroom photos (Johnny Manziel) and legal woes (Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon). I’m going to slide off the grid momentarily […]
We tried to keep it short, so rolling out Marvin Jones, replacements for Jordan Cameron (concussion) and throwbacks to players like Jordan Todman and company couldn’t be done. Of course, as this Championship Week rolls on, numerous players are being shut down. Matt Schaub is back into the mix for the Texans. Ben Tate is […]
The Onion and Lenovo put together a series of videos following a fantasy team from creation through the playoffs. There are eight videos in the series that show the scouting process, draft day and the excruciating in-season roster management. What if Alfred Morris and Larry Fitzgerald were lobbying for a starting spot in your Flex […]
The short week brings us tryptophan-induced comas, mountains of food and THREE NFL games to get Week 13 started. It’s the final week ahead of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in many leagues, so owners are splitting hairs to find the right starter. Do you trust the Hot-Cold young options, like a Case Keenum? Do you […]
Kenny Stills of the Saints has become one of the hottest commodities on the waiver wire for Week 9 following his breakout performance against the Bills. Stills would prefer that you keep the fantasy chatter out of his timeline.

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 […]
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
Week 2 is revving up with the Patriots and Jets on the board for the Thursday night. Can Tom Brady find the magic against a solid New York pass defense? What do you do with Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson in a tough head-to-head matchup? I’m eager to see the follow-up effort produced by Terrelle […]
It’s time to start breaking down the good, bad and ugly coming out of Week 1 of the NFL season. As always, we here Inside The Dome like to highlight the leading targets and monitor pass distribution to note trends. And, while we can make a judgment and perhaps draw a distinction between the second […]
I know that this data set is based on imperfect numbers from the 2012 season. There’s going to be noise in the data. Obviously, teams made shifts in personnel through free agency and the draft to improve on last season’s failures, and we see a good number of teams rise from the depths to playoff […]
You fully expect Houston workhorse Arian Foster to appear among the leaders in the touch count summary. He led the league with 391 touches in 2012. “RoboBack” Adrian Peterson finished second with 388 touches, and the other members of the top nine are hardly a surprise. Most fans and fantasy owners would not recall the […]
