2018 Season Preview – Tight Ends

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

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 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 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 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

Sweet Fantasy 2017 – AFC West Preview

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire This is the 4th part of an 8 part series. You can find the previous installments below. AFC South AFC North AFC East Our 4th and final Division of the AFC brings us to the Wild Wild West. The West is perhaps the best division in the NFL at the moment. There are a few high powered offenses and a few stout defenses and plenty of intriguing Fantasy Studs and sleepers. Some players and teams have changed places, old fantasy favorites have unretired to come home. Let's get it on!   Denver Broncos Just a few short years ago Peyton Manning helped make virtually every member of the Broncos offense a fantasy stud, even Knowshon Moreno. Peyton is gone
