ESPN: Week 13 Fantasy Matchups

This week's theme: the AFC South, where three of the four defenses rank 28th or worst in DVOA. Also, a sad tale of the sun setting in Arizona for one my favorite fantasy players.

Audibles at the Line: Week 12

Thanksgiving weekend was all about coach appreciation. We enjoyed our remaining time with Norv and Romeo, noted Mularkey's boldness, and wondered if John Harbaugh's ever kneeled his way out of field goal range.

ESPN: Week 12 Fantasy Matchups

Fantasy schedule strengths for kickers and defenses. Is Kaepernick for real? Ditto Jacksonville's offense? Otherwise, start your Bengals and Colts.

ESPN: Week 10 Fantasy Matchups

This week, we're high on the Dolphins passing game, and high on the Steelers running game; if you can predict which back will be getting the bulk of the carries. Also, beware a Chris Ivory letdown.

In a quick-hitter at my former internet home, though, I detail the discovery that San Francisco has given the fewest snaps to rookies of any team in the league; and it's not even close. This piece was geared towards the Niners Nation crowd, but there's a table of rookie snap counts for all teams through Week 9 if you're interested.

ESPN: Week 8 Fantasy Matchups

We recommend seeing if you can cut a deal for Andre Johnson, and jumping off the Shonn Greene train before it's too late. You'll want to start Andrew Luck this week, but don't play Doug Martin if you have better options.
