Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Eight

The moves I outlined here last week worked well, and I did not even have time to pick up the Redskin defense, as I said I wanted to (they went off). Picking up TE Todd Heap (2 TDs) and Mike Williams (25 points) worked out well, and despite my RB issues, my team went off and knocked off a 5-1 squad.

So I’m now 4-3, but I made a huge mistake last week. Since I lost Jermichael Finley, I wanted the upside of TE Jacob Tamme, even though he was off, and I figured I could drop one of my stash-and-hope RBs and pick him up this week, but I picked the wrong one: LeGarrette Blount. Of course, I couldn’t get him on the WW this week, so I could have potentially saved my dire RB situation, but I did not.

If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    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 […]
