The week started strong with a 2-1 record against the spread on Thanksgiving Day. The late touchdown from Roethlisberger to Cotchery (failed 2-point conversion) gave us a curious win. We can keep the discussion of the Mike Tomlin play rolling, as I’m sure the NFL will chime in soon. Game Straight Up Against The Spread [...]
When the NFL schedule came out long ago, this Thursday’s NFC South battle between the Falcons and Saints was one of the games circled as a huge test for Matt Ryan’s squad on its path to New York. Alas, injuries and inconsistent play by the offense coupled with a sieve-like defense have sent the Mike [...]
It’s another rough week in Harmonville. I’ve been floating in the .500 world. This week rolled badly. Game Spread Straight Up Against The Spread Cincinnati at Miami CIN –2.5 CIN CIN Kansas City at Buffalo KC -3.5 KC KC San Diego at Washington WAS -.5 WAS WAS New Orleans at New York Jets NO -5.5 [...]
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.
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 [...]

NFL training camps opened across college campuses (and now a number of team facilities) this week. The countdown until your league’s fantasy [...]
It was a busy weekend for “The Fantasy Freaks” on FOX Sports Radio. In addition to celebrating the social media movie event of the summer (“Sharknado”), Nate Lundy and I actually got a chance to talk about some real gridiron action. Howard Balzer, longtime NFL scribe and commentator, joined the show to talk about player [...]
As the countdown to kickoff winds down, I would be remiss if I failed to go on the record with selections for this round. So, let’s make it short and sweet. CIN at HOU: Houston sputtered down the stretch. I expect Gary Kubiak to get back to basics and run, run, run Arian Foster and [...]

Harmon breaks down the particulars of NO-GB. Fantasy thoughts and a game prediction.
As expected, media day came and went with nary a blip on the sports landscape. A collective yawn could have emanated from the group of players as the same questions were asked … and asked … and asked ad nausea. Sure, there were a few oddball questions, a minor security skirmish and more references to [...]
A quick review of the overall stat lines from the NFC title game makes you scratch your head. The Saints shouldn’t have been in this game. Period. The Vikings moved the ball well.
