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 […]

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 […]

I would just toss it up to Peyton Manning on the strength of his seven-touchdown performance in Week 1 against the Ravens. That would be too easy. We expected Manning to post a strong day and he delivered in a huge way. The Fantasy Man-Crush for Week 1 rolls to tight end Julius Thomas, who […]

With one week in the books, fantasy owners are already looking to shuffle the proverbial deck and find value and options on the waiver wire. I understand the frustration with failed Week 1 starters, including a lengthy list of running backs. However, I’m reticent to do a massive overhaul out of the gate. It’s one […]

We spent much of the offseason discussing player safety and changes to the rules regarding hits. Recently, the NFL agreed to a $765 million settlement with former players. The bulk of the discussion has been focused on concussions, head trauma and CTE. Week 1 brought a boatload of offense with 63 touchdown passes and thrilling, […]

Superstar wide receiver Demaryius Thomas addresses the media following the Broncos’ explosive Week 1 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Forget the banners and preseason hoopla. Peyton Manning carved up the Baltimore secondary, and his top wide receiver made his mark.

The 2013 NFL season finally kicked off after a seemingly endless preseason period. We waded through uncharted legal waters, the next round of PED chatter and myriad injuries and personnel changes. Finally, after an extended lightning delay, we saw a countdown to kickoff that ended with a smiling Ray Lewis. The game played even for […]

The NFL kicked off the 2013 season with a high-scoring, wild affair in Denver. Peyton Manning posted a game for the ages, ripping apart a tired and over-matched Baltimore defense. The game played even for a half prior to Michael Oher’s injury, and the surgeon-like Manning went to work. Naturally, Harmon was quick to reach […]

It’s time to get it on. Each and every week, I’ll be rolling up my pick – Straight Up and Against The Spread – here on the Dome. After a long and often maddening offseason, the kickoff to the NFL season is finally here. The Ravens host the Broncos … in Denver … for the […]

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 […]

Early Sunday evening, I was attending to my long-honored tradition of the “naptastrophe.” My Sunday morning FOX Sports Radio show necessitates the early alarm, thereby putting me into a late-afternoon stupor that requires what some would consider a “long nap” and others would consider a “catastrophic” system failure. Thus, the “naptastrophy” was born. I digress. […]
