Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Four

I had a nice win last week in the Buffalo Wild Wings league to improve to 2-1. My team was led by Tom Brady and Adrian Peterson, and I got huge performances by Jermichael Finley, Jeremy Maclin, and Malcom Floyd.

Unfortunately, I’m still really light at RB, as my C.J Spiller pick in the 5th round continues to come back to haunt me.

I have Clinton Portis, but missed out on Ryan Torain on the WW this week, and that was my fault because I should have picked him up last weekend.

If you’re loo […]

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
