It is only week 2 of the 2013 NFL season and Eddie Royal already has 5 receiving touchdowns? At this point it looks like he is Philip Rivers’ favorite target since Denario Alexander is out for the entire season. I had thought Vincent Brown was the next big receiver in San Diego but Eddie Royal has proven me wrong. We didn’t see any action from Royal last year because he was injured and the years before that he played on the Broncos with shitty quarterbacks including Tim Tebow. His rookie year with Denver he put up 1,000 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns. Maybe this is going to be Continue reading
Looking for some deep sleepers for your fantasy football team? I’ve gone through the depth charts and filtered out several players across multiple positions that you should be able to draft in later rounds or pick up off of the free agent list. I personally play in a 12-team keeper league that has two flex positions so finding a stud with a breakout year is crucial. Below are my results…
Russell Wilson – Coming into his first season into the NFL, Wilson will be given the reigns of the Seahawks. He’ll be on a short leash after the team sunk a big contract into Matt Flynn, but at least he has the chance to create his own destiny. His inexperience may lead to mistakes, but he’s a dual threat with his throwing and running abilities.

Isaiah Pead – ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter Monday that the Rams envision No. 50 overall pick Isaiah Pead as Steven Jackson’s eventual successor. Schefter stated that Continue reading
I thought this was too obvious to post, but through today only 15% of all people on ESPN own this guy so I guess it’s worthwhile. Torrey Smith was a 2nd round draft pick out of Maryland in this year’s draft, and until Sunday he hadn’t gotten in a game. For anyone who missed last week’s Ravens game, Lee Evans was hurt, so Smith got his chance to make his first career start. He trots out and his first catch is a 74 yard touchdown. His second catch? A 41 yard touchdown. His third catch? An 18 yard touchdown. Final stats: five catches, 152 yards. Looks like Smith won’t be relinquishing that starting spot any time soon. It’s worth noting that Smith did pull his hamstring last week, and is officially listed as questionable this week. That said, he’s going to be a deep threat for the Ravens all year and is well-worth picking him up on the waiver wire, if it’s not too late.
With the NFL back in action, there is nothing more exciting then watching your team play and competing every week in your fantasy football league. It all starts with the draft so we have compiled some tips we believe to be useful for this years fantasy football season. Continue reading
