Pau Gasol

Plenty of stars are looking at good news and bad news in this week's injury report. Just seven weeks into the season, expect to see these injury reports crowd up even more as these guys pile ailments on top of others. Also, Steve Nash returns for a record third injury update – on the same injury. He trails only...

New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Marco Belinelli

It's always a head-scratcher when a season-long bench player gets a starting job and exceeds all expectations. Remember Jeremy Lin? Why was that guy on the bench this whole time while some bum was playing serious minutes? Well, it's a long season and eventually those things work themselves out. Luckily this week, we take a look at some new...

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno

We’re hypnotized, sometimes, by flashes of brilliance and untapped potential. Fantasy owners aren’t into slow and steady; NFL coaches are. Which brings me to Denver running back Knowshon Moreno, and three ways to guard your precious playoff-bound fake football squad from the ruinous Thursday night performances that have sunk so many teams this year. The Broncos play in Oakland tonight. Knowshon Moreno,...

Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook

You’re racking up credit card charges that’ll make you wretch in January, you’re drinking to excess and humiliating yourself at holiday parties every weekend, and Jared Cook is about to become fantasy relevant again. It’s December. Think of Cook, a physical specimen at 6-foot-5 and 249 pounds who runs the 40 in an astounding 4.5 seconds, as Jermichael Finley if Finley were good...

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...
