Week 9 Fantasy Football Preview


We’re now halfway through the NFL season, which means we have roughly 4-6 weeks left of the fantasy football regular season. It’s crunch time. Your league’s trade deadline may be passed, but if it hasn’t, it’s time to make the final moves to prepare your team for a shot at the postseason. It’s time to separate the men from the boys, and the faint of heart from the die-hard fantasy football gladiators. Week 9 is … Continue reading

Tony Romo Has Been Elite Since His Contract Extension

New Orleans Saints v Dallas Cowboys

  When the Dallas Cowboys signed Tony Romo to a massive contract extension in 2013 (which I believed they had to do), the narrative suddenly changed for Romo and the Cowboys. Since he was now being paid top money, he needed to perform like a top quarterback. For a while, that contract looked like it may be one of the worst in NFL history. After two back surgeries and a terrible outing by Romo versus the San Francisco 49ers, many … Continue reading

Ben Roethlisberger vs Tony Romo


In 2010, the Dallas Cowboys started the season going 1-7 as they lost Tony Romo for the season and any hope at a playoff birth. They finished the year at 6-10 with Stephen McGee playing quarterback in the final game. In the same year, Ben Roethlisberger led his Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl where they eventually lost to the Green Bay Packers. Since then, the Cowboys and Steelers have mirrored each other in so … Continue reading

Film Room: Lance Dunbar’s Third Down Catch


For the most part, Lance Dunbar has been a non-factor for the Dallas Cowboys this season. Prior to the Seattle game, Dunbar only managed to have 84 yards on 16 total touches. For a player the Cowboys treated with “kid gloves” Dunbar had many questioning why he was even on the roster. But Dunbar made a game changing play on Sunday, late in the second quarter that helped Dallas change the momentum going into halftime. … Continue reading

Fantasy Football Week 7 Preview

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

Week 6 featured the return of Tom Brady and LeSean McCoy to fantasy goodness, and it also showed us again that the Redskins are really missing RG3, because Kirk Cousins isn’t the real deal. We lost some more key players last week, and we have new players to monitor going forward. Hopefully your team has been performing well and week 6 resulted in a win for your teams. Study up for week 7 and keep … Continue reading

Week 6 Fantasy Football Preview


Hopefully your team is still in the running for the playoffs as we approach week 6. After five games, let’s take a look at some guys that are owned in too many leagues and in too few leagues. And to wrap it up, we will look at each of Sunday’s games and the matchup on Monday night. Under/Over-ownership: Under: Marvin Jones- 0.9% Austin Davis- 4% Chandler Catanzaro- 5.2% (Hasn’t missed a kick yet this year) … Continue reading

Steelers Need To Unleash Their Offensive Potential


It’s no secret that Todd Haley is a fan of conservative play calling – something he has excelled at throughout his career. And Big Ben has taken fewer big hits as a result. However, there comes a time where you need to loosen the ropes on the Steelers offense. Though Pittsburgh beat Jacksonville in a tightly contested battle last week, by no means should the Steelers offense consider that game to be a victory. Before … Continue reading

Dez Bryant’s Targets Through Five Weeks


Like every week, I’ve charted every Dez Bryant target through five games. The “key” is listed below the chart. Through five games, Bryant has accumulated 376 yards on 32 catches to go along with four touchdowns. It should be noted that I consider a drop by Bryant any ball that hits one or both of his hands that is dropped. On Sunday, I credited Bryant with three drops and two uncatchable passes. But Bryant has … Continue reading
