Art Stapleton, a Giants beat reporter for The Record, offered a fantastic nugget on Twitter early Wednesday. He referenced Week 4 Fantasy Football hero Larry Donnell’s retelling of his own benching. That’s right. All of the fantasy owners that were wringing their hands for benching or neglecting to pick up the big tight end were […]

We vowed “not to get Shanahaned” again – you have an hour to shift Helu out of your lineups as he’s been DEACTIVATED. Evan Royster gets the nod in the backfield. I’m rolling up “Sexy Rexy” as a QB1 option. Running Back 33 1 Arian Foster 34 2 Ray Rice 35 3 LeSean McCoy 36 […]

Kerrigan is a great speed rusher who has a nose for the football. He forced fumbles regularly for the Boilermakers off of the edge and worked down the line beautifully to close-out runs from the backside. Next up: New England Is it Ingram or Cameron Jordan?

Tyron Smith goes to the Cowboys to bolster the offensive line and keep Tony Romo upright. He’s got a ridiculous wingspan and can manhandle defensive lineman. Smith stands 6-foot-5 and weighs about 310 pounds, a first-team All-Pac 10 performer. Next up: Washington Will the Blaine Gabbert watch end?

I’ll ramble on this more in tomorrow’s edition of the “Fantasy 15” with John Halpin on But, for now, let me say that Michael Vick’s embrace of Donovan McNabb clearly included a giddy “thank you … thank you … thank you!” Before fans had even gotten back from the fridge or cracked open a […]

Here are my picks for Week 3 — Straight up — Against the spread to come. Cincinnati at Carolina: Cincinnati Buffalo at New England: New England San Francisco at Kansas City: San Francisco Tennessee at New York Giants: New York Giants Cleveland at Baltimore: Baltimore Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay: Pittsburgh Atlanta at New Orleans: New […]

The turnover continues in Philadelphia. It is truly a new Eagles team that you’ll be witnessing come 2010. Many of your veteran heroes are gone. This is a new-look squad for Andy Reid … and Kevin Kolb becomes “The Man.” … Or does he? Seriously, I re-typed that title like 15 times before it sank […]
