Sports and fantasy sports collide as one man tries to cover everything under the sun or fall asleep trying.
My thoughts on the most recent transfer deadline and how it will impact the league. I break down the upcoming slate of games as well as my thoughts on the immediate decisions that fantasy managers will face moving forward.
A short recap on the Sixers epic playoff implosion surrounding Ben Simmons and the ongoing mess that is the Eastern Conference playoffs where the Bucks survive multiple coaching blunders. I give my thoughts on Game 2 between the Suns and Clippers plus my takes on the remaining matchups in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
I give my thoughts on how the opening round of the NFL Draft should play out Thursday night despite the lack of franchise QBs (imo) that keep being projected at the top of the board. Plus I give some thoughts on the EPL clubs that did the abrupt about face in pulling out of the European Super League.
This was a long time coming but the battle between the super clubs of soccer vs. everyone else has now begun with the announcement of 12 of the largest teams in Europe (Manchester United, Barcelona, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, and Tottenham Hotspur) opting to form their own league and withdraw from UEFA competition. I provide my thoughts on the financial rationale driving this audacious move and where things go from here.
I give my thoughts on the circus going on tonight between Jake Paul and Ben Askren while discussing the early season struggles of the Yankees. Plus I go through the entire UFC Fight Night Card with my thoughts on the DFS and gambling slate.
I give my thoughts on the two regions where I expect the most variance in terms of predicted winners vs. actual results. The Midwest region should still be the one to look out for in terms of how brackets are decided this year.
I talk about some of the recent moves in the NFL and the reason why teams have opted for this roster bonus conversion maneuver in light of the salary cap decrease. Plus I give my initial thoughts on the 2021 edition of March Madness.
Who knew Eric Fisher would cast that large of a shadow over the Big Game? I break down the championship victory for the Buccaneers over the Chiefs with my dad and how many ways it all went horribly wrong for the defending champs.
I provide my final thoughts on the game tonight with the active list published. This should be a good one to watch and do not forget to check out the 2nd half contests as there should be opportunities available to pivot on strategy.
I give my quick thoughts on the big game next week as well as the Arenado to the Cardinals trade before diving into the Matthew Stafford Jared Goff exchange. Very interesting if only because of how underwhelmed both fanbases are with their starting QBs and what prospects they hold moving forward.
After Matt Lafleur's inexplicable coaching blunder we now have our Superbowl matchup set between Brady vs. Mahomes. I look back at both conference title games as there were a number of head-scratchingly bad decisions by the coaches on the losing side. Aaron Rodgers has to be wondering how things could have been different with a Tee Higgins or Chase Claypool drafted in the 1st round instead of Jordan Love.
Plenty to talk about what transpired earlier today as the Chiefs suffer multiple setbacks to Mahomes in their win against the Browns and Drew Brees gifts Tom Brady and the Buccaneers a trip to the NFC Championship game. I discuss further with my father and what to expect moving forward.
We have made it to the NFL playoffs and I give my thoughts on the matchups as well as roster construction thoughts for both Draftkings and Fanduel. There is usually a surprise or two on this weekend and with 6 games this year as opposed to the normal 4 games we are bound to see an upset or two by the end of Sunday night.
Only in a joke of a division that was the NFC East in 2020 could we have an NFL coach decide in the middle of a game that the 3rd string QB needed to get some snaps was part of the gameplan. Tanking has been part of the NFL for years and I explain why it is nothing new and the handwringing over this needs to stop. Plus I take a look at the upcoming Wild Card playoffs next week.
Condolences to anyone going up against Alvin Kamara in the championship of their fantasy league this week but at least we have other games to focus on as I break down the Sunday games and my takeaways for how to approach contests.
Today should be focused on the rest of the NBA kickstarting the season and the James Harden/Rockets situation has upended everything. We have a possible postponement on the way over outbreak concerns. This is a fluid situation and obvious mess and still does not cover the nonsense that is James Harden's plan to get himself traded.
