Chicago Bears defensive end Henry Melton

The most offensive strain of fantasy football dogma might be defensive. In a convention hall full of fake footballers last August in Atlantic City, the thinking was everywhere, infecting everyone like some End Times plague: We must, at all costs, draft the San Francisco 49ers’ defense, for there is no other defense that can pray to post numbers even remotely...

Tony Gonzalez

Bench Garrett Hartley. That’s about it. It’s going to be hard to mess up this one, dear reader. We have two offenses that run on high-octane gasoline and cocaine, one defense that has proven laughably bad through most of this season, and another that has looked increasingly vulnerable of late. The Saints-Falcons showdown on Thursday night is destined to be a...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Dallas Clark

It’s time for Dallas Clark hipsters to come back to their guy. The owners who, in late 2007 and throughout 2008, latched onto the tight end running seam routes for Peyton Manning’s well-oiled Colts machine and watched him catch 100 passes for 1,100 yards in 2009, should consider hooking up with the old man one more time – this Sunday in...

Anthony Davis

Most injury reports are usually riddled with, well, new injuries. Perhaps I'm feeling the holiday spirit because this week's injury report is filled with hope and optimism for the return of some of the league's biggest stars. Of course, this means some of those waiver guys you picked up along the way are on their way out, but don't...

Detroit Pistons small forward Tayshaun Prince

As fun as it is finding newcomers that are just getting their big break, it's just as fun when former stars return from obscurity in new key roles. So without further ado, yes, this is a waiver report featuring Jermaine O'Neal, Antawn Jamison, and Tayshaun Prince. Tayshaun Prince (33%-Owned in Yahoo! Leagues): He has put up double-digit points in nine...

Matthew Stafford

I’ve been there – you’re going into Turkey Day, locked in the heat of a lethal fake football playoff battle with your buddy or coworker or college friend who snuck his way into your keeper league and has proven a genuine douche bag over the first 11 weeks of the NFL season. You’re ready to unleash your fantasy squad’s big...

Vick Ballard

You may remember Vick Ballard from his role as Neo from “The Matrix” during his inhuman dive into the end zone against the Titans in Week 8. The dude contorted his body and scored the most incomprehensible touchdown of the year. He showed a lot on that run, including a little wiggle and surprising acceleration for such a stout running back. This...

Jameer Nelson

Injuries are a beautiful thing in fantasy basketball. Not simply because they open up opportunities for new faces but because so many fantasy owners will drop perennial All-Stars at the first hint of injury. Five games later, the soreness has subsided and you have a bunch of serious fantasy producers out there for the taking. Let's take a look...
