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

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.

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

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 4

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire We are a quarter of the way through the NFL Season. Here are 69 things, thoughts, facts, and anecdotes from Week 4. Le'veon Bell's preseason is officially over. I'm still worried about Ben Roethlisberger. Martavis Bryant has been open a lot. Juju Smith-Schuster is playing more snaps. He could be in for a decent workload this week with Brown and Bryant seeing Ramsey and Bouye. Alex Collins needs to stop fumbling because he looks like the Ravens best runner by a lot. Joe Flacco earned his contract but it's hard to watch him play football right now. The Bengals Offense has looked much better since Bill Lazor took over. Joe Mixon can't

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things about Week 3

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's time again for a 69 pack of thoughts, musings, facts, and anecdotes from your Sweet Fantasy. The Patriots D is going to force Tom Brady to throw a lot this year. Brandin Cooks showed what kind of an impact he can have last week. He is still going to be frustrating to own week to week. Deshaun Watson is going to have some big fantasy weeks in this league. Is it just me or does D'onta Foreman already look like the best RB on the Texans? Jared Goff and the Rams offense looked amazing against the 49ers. If they can have a similar game against the Cowboys it will be time

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 2

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's that time for 69 again. 69 things, thoughts, musings, and anecdotes from Week 2. In honor of this column, Congrats to Gronk on career TD Number 69! Tom Brady against the Saints defense is unfair, especially to owners playing against him last week. Brandin Cooks is gonna explode one week soon but you have to start him every week and take the bad with the good. The Saints offense hasn't had that great week yet. They will probably have to wait at least one more week. Carolina's D is strong. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense looks as good as last year. Devonta Freeman is gonna have a lot of big

Home Road Splits and Primetime Games

Tyler Moore - Fantasy Sports Writer: The Wagner Wire   Quarterbacks and their home road splits; Plus, how they play in crucial games. Many people question if home road splits are an actual viable stat to keep in mind for fantasy football. These are professional quarterbacks we are talking about after all. Those people I would like you to meet Mr. Big Ben Roethlisberger (maybe you have heard of him?), who is the poster boy for this stat. Since 2014 Big Ben has averaged 30.1 points per game at home compared to just 17.12 points on the road. If put those numbers at a season long pace Ben at home would have 482 points, but on the road, he would have 274 points.
