Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Five

I wish I was tracking some of my other teams because I am doing well in all of them but one, but this Buffalo Wild Wings league is pretty decent. Last week, I was still stinging from missing out on RB Ryan Torain, who I should have picked up before Week Three was played. I knew he was going to be a factor as soon as he was activated off the practice squad the Friday leading up to Week Three, and I blew it by not picking him up. Unfortunately, my fantasy teams are out-of-sight and out-of-mind late in the week after the initial round of waivers are run, which is why I always remind people to always check the late-week needs and the WW because you can often make some great pickups on Friday-Sunday.

  • 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 […]
