The possibility of Brandin Cooks having a "return to glory" season with Watson as his quarterback. I also discussed the idea of MLB playing an 81 game season out west without fans in attendance at the games.
Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst Tight End can often be overlooked when drafting your fantasy team but getting consistent points out of your Tight End position can be the key to taking home the trophy at the end of the year. The Tight Ends will be ranked in tiers for this installment of you Sweet Fantasy. Tier 1 1. Travis Kelce - Chiefs 2. Rob Gronkowski - Patriots That's the first tier at least for this year. I prefer Kelce due to Gronkowski's injury issues over the years. If you draft either of these guys it is the equivalent of starting a WR1 or WR2 at your Tight End spot every week. It can be a huge advantage. Tier 2 3. Zach Ertz - Eagles I'm putting
Adam Wagner - Senior Analyst: The Wagner Wire The 2018 NFL season is upon us, so that means we need to be entrenched in as much fantasy football news as possible. This installment will cover the top 10 NFL running backs for fantasy football in 2018. The list was generated based on a points per reception (PPR) league format. #10 Leonard Fournette - JAX There were several questions regarding Leonard Fournette’s fitness and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield last season. In his rookie campaign Fournette toted the rock 268 times for 1,040 yards, crossing the goal line 9 times. He also caught 36 of his 48 targets from Blake Bortles, stacking up 302 yards receiving yards and one touchdown.
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
Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire If the regular season is a marathon then the Fantasy Playoffs are a street fight where anything and everything is allowed. You've worked hard all season to assemble a team worthy of taking home Fantasy Gold. This is a guide to what to do and not do in the Fantasy Playoffs. Dance with who brought you If you've played fantasy football for even a few years then you know that match-ups play a big part in deciding whether your players come up big or fall short. You shouldn't ignore match-ups once the playoffs start but you also shouldn't start a guy off the waiver wire with a nice match-up over Antonio Brown. I'll never
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
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
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
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 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
