Week 10 Fantasy Football Rankings: RB, K, DST

Did you run out and get Marcel Reece or Chris Ivory or some other flavor-of-the-week running back? I’m not mocking, of course, but just pointing out the insanity that is the Fantasy running back position. Think of how many running backs we’ve ripped through, including the FOUR running backs that are barely worth anything in Arizona. All right — enough griping! Let’s get to the Week 10 Fantasy Football RB Rankings and find out what’s in store! I posted the Week 10 Fantasy Football QB, WR and TE Rankings here on Tuesday. Week 10 NFL Schedule Indianapolis at Jacksonville Denver at Carolina N.Y. Giants at Cincinnati Tennessee at Miami Detroit at Minnesota Oakland at Baltimore Buffalo at New England San Diego at Tampa Bay Atlanta at New Orleans N.Y. Jets at Seattle Dallas at Philadelphia St. Louis at San Francisco Houston at Chicago Kansas City at Pittsburgh Week 10 Fantasy Football RB Rankings These rankings are for non-PPR leagues, with four points for passing touchdowns. My buddies over at Four-Downs.com supply the rankings tool, so big props to those guys for all their help! Arizona, Cleveland, Green Bay and Washington are all on byes in Week 10. That means we’re missing out on running backs like Trent Richardson and Alfred Morris — and one of the three billion Cardinals running backs. Here are the teams that are coming back from bye weeks: New England, N.Y. Jets, St. Louis and San Francisco. Also, the rankings tool prevented me from adding Lions RB Mikel LeShoure, so understand that I have him 24th this...

ProFootballMatchups – Best Week 8 NFL Bets

Welcome to the Week 8 of the NFL season and ProFootballMatchups.com picks of the week. This is where they’ll post their analysis of what they think are the best Week 8 NFL bets, helping you decide between the tough bets and the easy ones. Each week, they’ll post the top games of the week, usually along with their best Underdog Bet of the Week.    Best Week 8 NFL Bets Games of the Week: Atlanta Falcons @ Philadelphia Eagles The Falcons are coming off a bye and are looking to move their winning streak to 7 games. The offense has been the main reason for the success and is averaging 28.5 points (Top 10 in the NFL) and 361.3 yards per game. Matt Ryan has been great at getting the ball to his playmakers Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. The Falcons have had problems putting teams away lately, since the running attack is among the worst in the NFL only averaging 86.5 yards per game. The defense has been great holding opponents out of the end zone only allowing an average of 18.8 points per contest. The run defense has been poor allowing 143.8 yards per game and 367.2 total yards per game. The Eagles are coming off a bye week, but all was not quiet in Philly. Andy Reid dismissed the Eagles defensive coordinator during the bye week and will look to get his talented unit to play more aggressive during the second half of the year. The unit has been average allowing 20.8 points and 330.8 total yards per game. The pass defense has been the weaker unit for the D allowing 226.3 passing yards per game. Even though the DC was fired the offense should shoulder an equal amount of blame for the team’s poor play only scoring 17.2 per game. The offense has been great moving the ball averaging 379 total yards per contest and have been able to move the ball on the ground averaging 122 yards, but the issue has been the ability to protect the ball, since the Eagles are one of the worst teams in the NFL at turning the ball over. The Falcons are 1-4 ATS after allowing 350 yards the previous game and...

My Fantasy Football Team’s Record is — and — … Now What?

My Fantasy Football Team’s Record is — and — … Now What?

We’re six weeks into the season … Do you know where your team is?While we’re not quite at the halfway mark, we are at a pivotal point in your fantasy football team’s season. With bye weeks upon us and injuries mounting, there’s no place for a misstep. Imagine riding your bike across a swampy ditch, going over a plank that’s just one foot wide. You could have some great momentum going up it, but if you waver midway, you’ll find yourself picking leeches out of your underwear. Trust me – you don’t want that. I’ll never make that mistake a ninth time. So where does your team fit in the categories below, and what can I tell you to help you make your playoff chase an easier one? Barring ties, double-headers and any obscure scoring systems that give your team something other than one win or one loss (are you a Communist?) – you are one of the following people: ; My Fantasy Football Team‘s record is 6-0 What this means: Your first few draft picks did what they were supposed to do (like Ray Rice, Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall) and maybe a rookie pick has surprised (like Robert Griffin III or Alfred Morris). Seems like you have had a favorable schedule thus far, and you are pretty much a lock for the postseason. Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT start talking trash, as not to jinx your run at the ‘72 Dolphins. What to do: In a keeper league, you can begin to part with rookies or sophomores on your bench to bolster your squad. You are all about winning this year. NOW! You don’t need much; you just need to not screw things up. Don’t get crazy with some waiver-wire additions that 11 other owners passed on. You are Season 1 of “Heroes” – don’t become Season 2.In a non-keeper league, you’ll have to make sure you handcuff your best players. Remember that during the draft, many handcuffs were taken. But things have changed, and the new top dogs have available backups. Also, other owners possibly dropped top backups of other players. Some players to think about picking up, include: Toby Gerhart and Robert Meachem. ;...
