What can Brown do for Benson?

It seems veteran RB Chris brown has narrowed the teams he will play for this year down to two: his old team, the Titans, and the Bears. It’s going to be pretty interesting to see where he lands up because the fantasy ramifications are pretty big. If he goes back to Tennessee he will presumably do so under better terms than which he played for last year, when he was basically cast aside due in part to his apparent interest in being traded. Not only that, but he would actually have a good chance to start, or at least open the season as the starter. If Brown is re-signed by the Titans, then you have a mess there at the position.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
