2019 NBA Mock Draft: Post Early Entry Withdrawal Deadline

Photo by Streeter Lecka: Getty Images By: Lucas Vargas (Twitter: @lucasvargas44) The NBA Draft takes place this week on June 20th and underclassmen have chosen whether or not to remain in the draft or return to school. This draft may not have the deep star power of other classes but there are several players that can make an impact as role players to help teams immediately. Dylan Windler and Carsen Edwards are two names that stand out to me who could go late in the first round with chances to meaningfully contribute to playoff ready teams. With franchises concluding their prospect workouts and finalizing their draft boards, here are my predictions: 1. New Orleans Pelicans: Zion Williamson, Duke Blue Devils, Age 18

Sweet Fantasy – 2018 AFC East Preview

Chris Sweet – Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Guess who’s back? Back Again. Football’s back. Tell a friend. Oh yeah, it’s that time again! Another fantasy football season is upon us. I am your Sweet Fantasy once again and the Wagner Wire is fired up for this season. This is the first of my division preview series which will go over the fantasy options on each team. It’s good to be back!   Buffalo Bills   The Bills found a way to end their long playoff drought last year. They never totally bought into the Tyrod Taylor era and now will make way to future starter Josh Allen. Their biggest fantasy star the past 3 years has been LeSean McCoy. Shady is living up

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 12

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire I hope everyone had a great Holiday Weekend full of food, football, and family. It is now one of the most important weeks of the Fantasy Football Season. Week 13 is the last week of the regular season in many leagues so those Byes and last playoffs spots are on the line. Without further ado here are 69 things I took away from Week 12.   The Dallas Cowboys and any Fantasy owners of theirs sure miss Ezekiel Elliott. The offense is just completely out of synch. Rod Smith is an interesting guy to pick up for the playoffs with Alfred Morris struggling and Darren McFadden retiring after being waived. In a season

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things I’m Thankful For

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Thanksgiving Week is upon us so I'm switching it up a little this week. It's the time of year that we say what we are thankful for. So here are a Holiday 69 of things I'm thankful for. I'm thankful that DeAndre Hopkins is QB proof again. I'm thankful for DFS Thanksgiving slates. Because what goes better with a day full of family and eating than having some money on the line? I'm thankful for Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. I'm thankful that the Pittsburgh Steelers are giving Le'veon Bell all the carries he can handle. I'm thankful that the Chiefs are still the Chiefs I'm used to. I'm thankful that the Bills

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 10

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire The homestretch is upon us. 3 weeks for the rest of your life. Well, the rest of your fantasy season at least. You need this 69 right now, more than ever. 69 things I took away from Week 10. Tyron Smith was the Cowboys MVP, not Ezekiel Elliott. Those expecting automatic RB1 numbers from Alfred Morris will have to wait a few weeks. The Eagles come off their bye for a big-time Sunday Night Football Game at Dallas. Alshon Jeffery has 19 targets and 3 TDs in his last 2 games. Jay Ajayi could have a big game against the Cowboys Defense. Sterling Shepard is averaging over 100 yards and 11 targets

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 9

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's time to get down once again. The fantasy performances were a little uneven in Week 9. We are down to the home stretch in most leagues with only 4 weeks left to make the playoffs. Here are 69 things I took away from Week 9. Holy smokes, Carson Wentz is gonna win a lot of people Fantasy Titles. Jay Ajayi looked impressive on only 9 carries. Alshon Jeffery is emerging a little. Even so, this was only Jeffery's second game with more than 4 receptions. The Cowboys have quite the young Quarterback as well in Dak Prescott. He is a true Fantasy Stud. Terrance Williams caught all 9 of his targets

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 8: DeShaun Watson injury edition

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 8 was a whirlwind. The bye weeks are in full swing and Week 9 is especially brutal. Let's get right down to it. 69 things, thoughts, and anecdotes from Week 8.... That was the original open. The days that have passed since then have brought turmoil and pain as well as new hope to many Fantasy Owners. Some comments have been edited but I included the original comment. Original comment: You can't stop Deshaun Watson. You can only hope to contain him. Edit...Dear God Why??? DeShaun Watson tore his ACL in practice and is out for the season. Original comment: Will Fuller has 7 TDs on just 22 targets. Very Efficient. Edit...Glad

Sweet Fantasy 6 lists of 9 – Week 7

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire We are through 7 weeks which is a little over half of the regular season. Your Sweet Fantasy is switching things up a little this week. I'm bringing you 6 lists of 9 from the first half of the Fantasy Football season. These lists are compiled by yours truly and cover a range of things. Sit back, relax and enjoy. Top 9 Week Winners These are players that had outrageous weeks that won you the week by themselves. Several of these players could have been here multiple times. Kareem Hunt Week 1 - 148 rushing yards 5 receptions 98 receiving yards 3 total TD Amari Cooper Week 7 - 11 receptions 210 receiving yards

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 6

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 6 is in the books and here's what I learned. 69 times. The Steelers are going to get every ounce of production that they can from Le'veon Bell this year. I do not believe he will be a Steeler next year. Antonio Brown is the best WR I’ve seen since Jerry Rice. Only Amari Cooper has been a bigger bust than Martavis Bryant at the WR position. The Browns still don’t have a QB. Copy and pasted every year since 1999. Joe Flacco is tough to watch. It’s really hard to put any Ravens in your lineup right now besides their Defense. Andy Dalton is available in some leagues and should

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 5

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 5 is in the books so here are 70-1 things I took away from it. Ben Roethlisberger is playing like he did retire after last year. The only Steelers players you can start right now are Antonio Brown and Le'veon Bell. Joe Mixon is getting the carries now but his 2.8 ypc needs to improve if he is going to break out. The Bengals offense is starting to look better. AJ Green is the Elite WR nobody talks about. He is on pace for over 1600 yards receiving. Joe Flacco shouldn't be owned in many fantasy leagues. It's hard to trust any Ravens WR on any given week. Buck Allen is
