Week 4 Observations
The 2013 Broncos are the 2007 Pats. Before you (as many did on Twitter) say the Broncos are better, please look at the game logs
for the Pats first 10 games that year. Oddly Wes Welker is the common denominator, just as Randy Moss was the common denominator between the 2007 Pats and 1998 Vikings
another 15-plus win team and also one of the greatest offenses of all time. Maybe Demaryius Thomas will be part of some other juggernaut in 2019. It's worth noting the Vikings and Pats both lost in the playoffs.

Week 3 Observations
The Giants are 3-8 since the mid-point of 2012, and after a total no-show in Carolina, it's time for Tom Coughlin, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and Eli Manning to take more heat. Benching a running back isn't going to cut it this week.

Week 2 Observations
I knew the Texans were a slam dunk in Survivor. Don't know why anyone would have sweated it when Matt Schaub gave up a pick-six down one with three minutes left.

Week 1 Observations
It's amazing how much I missed football. I didn't realize it until the full Sunday slate kicked off and then for 15 minutes I was ecstatic.
Until my Survivor Pick, the Steelers, lost their starting center to a torn ACL and shortly thereafter Isaac Redman, whom I started over Eddie Lacy in one league and Rueben Randle in another, fumbled on the five-yard line. Then my No. 1 pick in the $100K NFFC league, Calvin Johnson, got his touchdown reversed, and my No. 1 pick in the NFFC $100K online championship, C.J. Spiller, fumbled and yielded carries to a more-effective Fred Jackson.
It was then I remembered what NFL Sundays are really about: extended stretches of stress and misery, punctuated by rare and isolated bursts of joy.
But at least I had the Giants game to look forward to on Sunday night...

Can The Machine Save My Fantasy Football Season?
It’s happened to us all at some point or another in our fantasy careers. The circumstances and stories may vary as to how and why, but at some point or another you’ve totally botched your draft. You might have been the most prepared guy in the room (or chat room as the case seems to be more often these days), but when something goes wrong – internet goes down, laptop crashes, baby is crying, significant other is nagging, whatever the case may be – things tend to snowball and your draft becomes a hot mess. Such was the case for me in my 14-team, NFL Standard draft.

Late ADP Trends: Top 15 Fallers in Standard Leagues
When last we left you on Friday, we were looking at the top 10 ADP risers in NFL standard scoring leagues. Now with final roster cuts made and teams settling in on position battles, things are taking an even better shape for those who still haven’t drafted. Today we’re going to look at the top 15 ADP fallers in NFL standard scoring leagues. Why 15 and not 10? Because a few extra names wouldn’t hurt, especially when some in the top 15 are only there because of injury. It doesn’t take a world of analysis to know that someone is falling down on draft boards because he broke his leg, right?

Fantasy NASCAR - Slappin' Good Fun
OK, Fantasy Freaks, I know everyone is wigging out about Fantasy Football as we're days away from Week 1's opening kickoff. But for those of you who have already drafted your team and are looking for a fun distraction, may I recommend Fantasy NASCAR? The Chase is just about to start (NASCAR's playoff) and you can jump right in. A nice aspect of Fantasy NASCAR is you can start at any point in the season and change drivers every week -- there is not a stressful "draft night".
I recommend starting a NASCAR league
with your Fantasy Football buddies so you've got additional trash talk topics. And if things get real heated, you can always send your girlfriend over to slap a league rival. That's just what happened...
