Caplan’s Reaches: Week Five

Quarterback

David Garrard at Seattle – It’s getting to the point with him that we may not be calling him a reach much longer. Garrard is starting to look like one of the best values in fantasy football this season. He’ll face a struggling defense, and his much improved offensive line has been giving him a lot of time to throw the ball. Look for him to post at least two TDs and 225 yards in this matchup of two bad defenses.

I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]

  • Just missed it: Week 14 December 12, 2013
    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]

  • Just missed it: Week Eleven November 21, 2013
    Here is another batch of just missed it type plays from Week 11. These are raw notes, so they were not edited for quality control.
