Jason Witten Not Cleared for Week 1

While we are sure most owners were already prepared for this news, we're wondering what you did to replace him in your lineup. Right after the injury occurred I scooped up Brent Celek (81% owned Yahoo) of the Philadelphia Eagles,  but had to sacrifice Cedric Benson (77%) of the Green Bay Packers. Top Available TEs in Yahoo Leagues Owen Daniels vs Miami Dolphins 72% Jared Cook vs New England Patriots 67% Greg Olsen vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers 65% Dustin Keller vs Buffalo Bills 60% Coby Fleener vs Chicago Bears 53% Kyle Rudolph vs Jacksonville Jaguars 33% Top Available TEs in ESPN Leagues Brent Celek vs Cleveland Browns 64% Kellen Winslow vs Arizona Cardinals 37% Greg Olsen vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35% Dustin Keller vs Buffalo Bills 35% Coby Fleener vs Chicago Bears 29% Jermaine Gresham vs Baltimore Ravens 28% Which TE will you add and who are you dropping to add him?

Boys Making Noise in the Preseason

Every year, players dominate the preseason, but rarely do they make an impact in fantasy land. However, with so many teams running with a committee in the backfield and holding on to those extra receivers to spread the field, some of these guys might actually be able to help during the regular season. Do not draft any of these guys, but keep an eye on them. QB Andrew Luck - Indianapolis Colts I don't think any of us can understand the pressure that Andrew Luck is under.  But clearly he knows how to handle it.  I guess when your first NFL pass goes for a TD, it makes things looks easy.  Over his first 2 preseason games, Luck is 26 for 41 with 2 TDs and 2 INTs while just being sacked once.  He also rushed for a score.  I haven't watch him play but to me that means he is making quick decisions and not holding onto the ball.  If Luck can continue to complete 63% of his passes he will be a reliable QB2 in fantasy.  Only negative thing going forward is that the Austin Collie has

Fantasy Baseball Week 19 (8/13-8/19)

8/15 - Considering that Melky Cabrera (81% owned Yahoo) has been the #2 OF over the last 14 days, he will be hard to replace for the remainder of the season.  However, teammate Angel Pagan (49%) has been the only OF better!  If you are not comfortable adding Pagan or he is unavailable, Ryan Ludwick (49%) is hitting .333 for the second month in a row.  It is a shame that Cabrera tested positive for Testosterone, as he was having one hell of a season, but rules are rules!

2012 Fantasy Football QB Strength of Schedule

Based on last years statistics, we looked at the average points per game each teams position scored and compared it to how each teams defense fared against opponents by position.  We will break down the best and worst possible matchup and tell you which week they play each other so you can edit your roster accordingly. Quarterback Matchups The Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers averaged the most fantasy points per game last year, just slightly above the New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.  Luckily for Mr. Rodgers, division rival and two time opponent each season Minnesota Vikings were the WORST defense against QBs.  This year the Packers and Vikings will play late in the season on Week 13 and 17.  BAD NEWS FOR FANTASY OWNERS.  Most leagues regular seasons end on Week 13 so while they might get that 1 super matchup for Rodgers and the Packers Wideouts, the Week 17 matchup in most leagues will not even count!  The Bears and Lions however do get to play the Vikings twice and in meanin

2012 Fantasy Football RB Strength of Schedule

Based on last years statistics, we looked at the average points per game each teams position scored and compared it to how each teams defense fared against opponents by position.  We will break down the best and worst possible matchup and tell you which week they play each other so you can edit your roster accordingly. Running Back Matchups Even though the New Orleans Saints are known for their passing attack, their 3 headed backfield earned them the top RB points per game last season!  Much of that has to do with two of their division rivals being the worst two teams against running backs.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the worst offenders(defenders?) and will see the Saints in Week 7 and a PRIME playoff game in Week 15.  Unfortunately, the Saints get the Panthers in just Week 2 as the second matchup is the final week of the season.  Good news though for both the Panthers and Bucs as they will face each other twice this year and both offenses will revolve around the run game.  We

2012 Fantasy Football WR Strength of Schedule

Based on last years statistics, we looked at the average points per game each teams position scored and compared it to how each teams defense fared against opponents by position.  We will break down the best and worst possible matchup and tell you which week they play each other so you can edit your roster accordingly. Wide Receiver Matchups Not to anyone's surprise, the Green Bay Packers wide receiving core lead the NFL in fantasy points per game by a long shot!  While the Packers WRs caught 38 TDs, the next closest team was the Cowboys receivers who brought down 27!  As mentioned in the QB SOS, the Detroit Lions have the unlucky task of taking on the Pack in weeks 11 and 14.  They allowed 210 receptions to receivers last year, which was only better than the Patriots (242, leagues worst) and Bears (214).  But the Lions were 2nd best at producing fantasy WRs last year and they get to face the Green Bay Packers defense which was the 4th worst vs. Receivers.  Another positive

2012 Fantasy Football TE Strength of Schedule

Based on last years statistics, we looked at the average points per game each teams position scored and compared it to how each teams defense fared against opponents by position.  We will break down the best and worst possible matchup and tell you which week they play each other so you can edit your roster accordingly. Tight End Matchups The Patriots have 2 of the top 10 TEs, if not Top 5 TEs in fantasy.  How much better are they then the rest of the bunch?  Well, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez led the Patriots TEs to 346.7 fantasy points.  The Saints and Jimmy Graham were a close second with 191.5!  Only 3 teams averaged double digit points from the TE position and that 3rd team is the Lions and Brandon Pettigrew.  The Patriots get the benefit of the worst TE defense in the Buffalo Bills twice this season, in Weeks 4 and 10.  They only have 2 other matchups against bottom feeders and that is a Week 11 matchup with the Colts and a Week 16 matchup with the Jaguars (Champion

Top 15 Hitters and Pitchers Over the Past 14 Days

Before you set your roster this week, take a look and see if these guys are still available in your leagues. They are the top 15 hitters and pitchers that are less than 75% owned in Yahoo leagues. How fantasy points are scored: Hitters: Singles - 1pt Doubles - 2pts Triples - 3pts Homeruns - 2pts RBI - 2pts Runs Scored - 2pts Walks - 1pt Stolen Bases - 1pt Pitchers: Win - 10 pts Innings Pitched - 2 pts Earned Runs Allowed - (1pt) Strike Outs - .5pt Player % Owned R 1B 2B 3B HR RBI SB BB Fan Pts Player % Owned IP W ER K Fan Pts Ángel Pagán (SF - OF) 49% 15 7 2 2 2 8 2 9 78 Clay Buchholz (Bos - SP) 64% 24.0 2 3 13 71.5 Ryan Ludwick (Cin - OF) 41% 7 7 5 0 4 17 0 4 77 Miguel González (Bal - SP) 5% 21.2 2 5 17 66.83 Nick Markakis (Bal - OF) 67% 10 12 2 1 4 12 0 4 75 Jason Vargas (Sea - SP) 64% 23.1 2 6 11 66.17 Kendrys Morales (LAA - 1B,OF) 58% 10 6 4 0 6 12 0 3 73 Jake Westbrook (StL - SP) 34% 19.2 3 8 9 65.83 Marco Scutaro (SF - 2B,3B,SS) 39% 7 13 4 0 1 15 0 6

Route 4 Sports: 7 Rules of Fantasy Football Draft

It's getting close to that time again!  It's almost draft time.  My favorite time of year.  We rank our players, grab our cheat sheets and draft what we all think is the championship team.  We text our friends and tell them to just pay up now because this league is yours.  But then something terrible happens.  Your star wide receiver gets hurt, you start to panic and make a dumb trade. Then you're so mad your 3rd draft pick is stinkin it up for the first 4 weeks so you drop him only to see the guy score 14 touchdowns throughout the rest of the season.  Worry no more my friends because I'm gonna tell you how to win your draft and ultimately win your league. The first and most important rule in Fantasy Football is never draft a kicker until the last round.  It's an absolute waste of time.  There's no telling how many FG attempts a kicker will have even with a lousy red zone offense.  And if you do draft a kicker earlier than the final round, for goo

Fantasy Baseball Week 18 (8/6-8/12)

8/11 -  The Texas Rangers have placed C Mike Napoli (92% owned Yahoo) on the DL with a quad injury.  Last month the Rangers traded for Geovany Soto (24%) who has been a top 20 catcher over the last 30 days.  However, before going to Soto look to add Ryan Doumit (55%) or Alex Avila (58%).    The Boston Red Sox have lost rookie 3B Will Middlebrooks (57% owned Yahoo) for the rest of the season after he broke his wrist last night.  He was hit by this pitch and without Kevin Youkilis on the roster the Red Sox don't have a good replacement for Middlebrooks.  They did however acquire Danny Valencia from the Twins recently, who once was relevant in fantasy baseball, but do not go ahead and add him to your roster.  I personally have added Chipper Jones (48%) in two different leagues this week so if he is available I suggest you do the same.  If Chipper is not available then go after Chris Johnson (48%) who has had a second wind since being traded to the Diamondbacks. 8/7 - Evan Longo

Ryan Matthews - Broken Clavicle Out 4-6 Weeks

And Fantasy Football season has OFFICIALLY begun!  Last night on Ryan Matthews first preseason snap, he suffered a broken clavicle and will miss the rest of preseason as well as 2 or 3 regular season games.  Obviously Matthews is no longer worthy of a 1st or 2nd round pick but he will still be a top 15 RB come seasons end. CALLING RONNIE BROWN!

Get To Know Him: Josh Rutledge

In 2010, the Colorado Rockies drafted SS Josh Rutledge in the 3rd round out of Alabama.  It must be tough when you are drafted by a team that signed their Franchise Shortstop (Troy Tulowitzki) to a 10 year extension, but Josh did not let that bother him.  In his 1st full season at Hi-A Ball he hit .348 with 33 doubles, 9 triples, and 9 home runs, driving in 71 runs.  This got scouts to take notice as Rutledge was ranked the Rockies #10 prospect heading into Spring Training.

Fantasy Baseball Week 17 (7/30-8/5)

8/3 - The Los Angeles Dodgers have made another smart move, picking up Joe Blanton from the Philadelphia Phillies.  There was a rumor going around that it was Cliff Lee claimed off waivers, but that is not the case.  Blanton is just 21% owned in Yahoo leagues and has 8 wins and just 18 walks in 133.1 innings pitched.  Blanton's last 3 starts have totaled 23 innings, 7 earned runs and 20 strike outs.  Blanton is a solid pitcher to have on your fantasy team and is widely available. Jayson Werth (56% owned Yahoo) returned to the Washington Nationals lineup last night going 1-3 with a single, a walk and an RBI.  If you need a boost, Jayson Werth is a nice pick up this late in the season. 8/1 - The Cincinnati Reds are likely to lose 2B Brandon Phillips (97% owned Yahoo) to a calf injury.  After a disappointing start to the season, Phillips has hit over .300 each of the past 2 months and will now leave fantasy owners with a huge hole to fill.  No 2B eligible player has more fantasy p
