Starting last week, the fantasy football community has been buzzing over many points of interest. Although new injuries occurred in week 7, the main concern is many previous injuries have been worse than expected. This leaves some teams scrambling to fill holes in their roster. As the trade deadline slowly approaches, teams are beginning to figure out what they must...
In week 6, many players stepped up and showed they can be very strong and involved in their team. They either filled roles that many expected, or surprised us by outperforming their expectations. However, many players under performed last week, and for some this adds to a trend of under performing. Injury provided many players the opportunity to take...
In the past three games, the Cowboys have shown promise, with the defense and offense both showing up ready to play. Along with that, they've fixed some issues in play calling and execution, leading to more scoring opportunities.

Week 4 also brought upsets, a team's...
In my first article about the Cowboys, I had high hopes for the season. In retrospect, I was probably too optimistic, thinking that their obvious problems would resolve themselves. I still have some hope for the team, but after this week three loss in Seattle, the cracks are starting to show. Offensive Line As I mentioned in my previous article, Travis...
For many players, week 2 has significant value in terms of carving out an important role in the team or showing that they can be consistent. Having a good first week does not necessarily mean that they will perform well throughout the season. Having played in 2 games now, players give a glimpse of whether or not they will...
