Fantasy Impact: Offensive Line Draft Selections
As I watched the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft conclude I thought it would be a good idea, since I'm the offensive line specialist here at RotoWire, to compile a ranking of the top-5 most impactful selections from a fantasy perspective.

NFL Draft Wrap - Round 1
With Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III going first and second, the first round of the 2012 NFL draft changed the landscape of fantasy football right off the bat. This year's version could not have been more different. It took over an hour, and eight picks, before anyone was chosen who would make even a small impact in 2013 fantasy football, with speedy receiver Tavon Austin going to the Rams. It was nearly another hour before a quarterback was drafted, with E.J. Manuel going to the Bills. Manuel was the only quarterback taken, and no running backs were chosen. Let's assess.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Two Weeks to Go!
Only Two weeks until the real NFL Draft takes place, and I look like an absolute fool for even trying to predict what actually happens. I am operating under the assumption that there will not be any trades. With that being said, I fully expect there to be a significant amount of movement, starting with the Cleveland Browns at pick #6. This draft isn't loaded with elite talent, but it is a very deep draft and there is a ton of quality that can be found in later rounds.

Rotowire Injury Analysis: Fantasy Football Week 16
Week 16 Injury Analysis report is here although I am pretty sure most of your fantasy seasons have come to an end and a champion has been crowned. However, there are some leagues that go until the very final week of the season although I personally am not a fan of these as it punishes teams who have players without a lot to play for in the final week. This information instead may serve useful in any sports bets you may want to make or just simply for your interest in reading about sports injuries.
Matt Forte: Forte was forced out of last weekend’s game with yet another ankle injury.....

The Giants played as badly in Baltimore as they did in Atlanta the previous week, to the point where one wonders why they bothered to make the trip. A forfeit would have been more dignified.

Rotowire Injury Analysis: Fantasy Football Week 15
Week 15 Injury Analysis is up and there’s not a lot of new injuries to discuss so I’m going to make this a “Reader’s Suggestion Issue” in which I’m going to let anyone make a comment regarding what player’s they would like updates on and I will be given quick responses so that you can hopefully use the information to take down the crown in our league.
There is just one player that I would like to discuss since I am from San Diego and it has been a rough past few years being a Chargers fan especially when the ownership decided in the last offseason that staying with Status Quo was the answer…..that didn’t seem to work out too well.
Ryan Mathews: In last week’s game, Mathews was forced.....

Week 15 Observations
I really thought over 0.5 for the combined point totals of the Bucs, Giants and Chiefs was a lock. Seriously, how did the Saints OR Raiders, allowing 29 and 31 points per game, (30th and 32nd, respectively) shut an opponent out?

Rotowire Injury Analysis: Fantasy Football Week 14
Welcome to the Week 14 Injury Analysis. I assume all leagues are either continuing or starting playoff games next week so it will be important to know what you should do about the few players that suffered more significant injuries in last weekend’s games. As always, feel free to leave comments about players I did not discuss or if you have comments on my analysis.
Robert Griffin III: Last weekend it looked like RG3 had his season ended when his leg violently swung in the air after taking a big hit and surely appeared that he would have a significant knee injury. Somehow he escaped with only an apparent Grade I LCL injury. Most people are familiar with the MCL (medial collateral ligament) injury.....

Week 13 Observations
Calvin Johnson had another 171 yards Sunday, and actually Matt Stafford missed him again on a deep ball after Johnson had gotten behind the defense. Johnson now has 1,428 receiving yards, a pace for 1,904. Jerry Rice's all-time record is 1848.

Week 12 Observations
How odd was it on Thanksgiving when Justin Forsett was awarded a touchdown on a play where his knee and arm were clearly down due to technicality most people didn't even know about? Apparently, I never realized the extent to which coaches needlessly throwing challenge flags on scoring plays was ruining the game. If you really want to stop coaches from wrongly throwing challenge flags, why not simply behead them at the 50 yard line? It would be only slightly more heavy handed than the current rule and far more effective. Plus, it wouldn't ruin the cover for someone who had the Lions +3 at home.

Rotowire Injury Analysis: Fantasy Football Week 11
It’s time for another week of injury analysis….Thanksgiving edition.
Let’s breakdown a few of the key injuries that occurred in last weekend’s games starting with the biggest fantasy football league shakeup…..Gronkowski’s injury.
We will also reveal how the Eagles discovered how to cure someone from a concussion!
Rob Gronkowski: In the Patriots’ recent game against Andrew Luck and the Colts, Gronkowski injured himself as he made an incredible leaping catch in the final 10 seconds of the game and dove into the endzone for the game-winning score to send the Patriots to the Superbowl!
