Option 1 is to play in one of the many daily fantasy games out there.

With Week 8 of the NFL season in the books, we are officially at the halfway point of the 2010 Pros vs Joes Draft Challenge.

The drafts were conducted back in late July, so there was plenty of opportunity to draft 'ahead of the curve' before ADP and roster situations started to stabilize during the ...

From a fantasy football perspective, the Texans were a great team last year.

The 2009 Texans were consistently great as a passing team (1st in the NFL for passing yards) and consistently terrible as a running team (30th in the NFL). There was no guessing game as to who to start each week. It was apparent very early on that ...

McNabb to Washington - Fantasy Impact

With Donovan McNabb heading to Washington, there is a plethora of fantasy fallout to consider with this move. Let's break it down by player.

Donovan McNabb - We expect McNabb to drop to a high #2 fantasy QB category at this point. With Mike Shanahan running the show, McNabb won't be functioning in a "pass in every situation" offense like he was in Philly. Where McNabb excels is his ability to make plays (which is a quality that Jason Campbell lacks). Don't expect the numbers that he put up ...

For those of you unfamiliar with slow drafts, this type of draft is conducted over a period of days, with each team given 12 hours or so to make their pick. And for better or worse, you can sit back and really contemplate what to do with your pick, unlike a live draft where you are under the gun. (Though sometimes you may ...

    2009 Fantasy Players Network Draft Review

    We recently drafted our team in the 2009 Fantasy Players Network Draft Challenge. This is a competition that we won last year, so we were looking to have a good draft to defend the title. Overall, I think we had a pretty good draft. It was a bit difficult trying to moderate the draft and draft a team at the same time, but having the 12 spot minimized the amount of 'thinking' that we had to do while tending to our admin duties as well.

    Some Pick Moss in 1st Round
    The Demise of the Fantasy Running Back

    It used to be that your running backs were the core of your fantasy team, and you drafted them early and often. In recent years however, the urgency of drafting your running backs early seems to have lessened. Fantasy football and the role of running backs are changing, as a result of the game of football itself changing.

    In previous years, the talent pool for running backs was so scarce, that if you didn't lock them up early on draft day, then you were out of luck. More recently, however, ...

    Let The Expert Drafts Begin

    One of the first high profile expert league drafts is in the books and ready for review. The FantasyGuru.com Magazine Expert Draft League is a perennial league with some high profile participants.

    Doh! Where's my money?

    Ever win a fantasy league and not receive all your winnings? Well how about realizing your dream of winning $100,000 in a national competition, and having to consider not getting that money?

    An interesting story is playing out in the high stakes segment of the fantasy sports industry. Apparently, AFFL (American Fantasy Football League), has informed its winners that it is delaying payment of cash prizes (some winners up to $100,000), as it seeks out investors to help cover a shortfall that ...

    Keith thinks he is a tough guy
    Week 16 Overachievers

    Here are our predictions for Week 16 on the neglected, downtrodden, forgotten about players who should perform above current expectations.

    Quarterbacks

    Sage Rosenfels - He's throwing to Andre Johnson and this week they have to play the Colts. They'll try to control the game with the run, but likely will have to air it out at some point to catch up. He's almost a lock for 2 TD's.

    Here are our predictions for Week 15 on the neglected, downtrodden, forgotten about players who should perform above current expectations.

    Quarterbacks

    Trent Edwards - It's a good matchup against the Cleveland Browns so the Bills should have to spend much of their day throwing the ball. Need a late season sleeper, give Trent a try.

    Quarterbacks

    Donovan McNabb - He's down but not out. A couple of weeks watching from the sidelines should have McNabb's head back on straight. He's still one of the most potent fantasy quarterbacks out there. If he's available in your league and you need a QB, grab him. At this point he's showcasing himself for ...

    Quarterbacks

    Philip Rivers - Not a lot of people of people noticed, but Rivers had a pretty decent game last week. This week he gets Baltimore at home, and these guys have been getting rocked lately. We think his confidence will carry over to this week as well.

    Rex Grossman - The Bears were unable to move the ball with Brian Griese, and as a result they couldn't get their running game on track either. Grossman ought to be able to stretch the field and put up some decent passing numbers.

    Quarterbacks

    Marc Bulger - He's been doing nothing lately as he's been hurt and just coming off his 1st game back. But at home against Cleveland, it should be somewhat of a shootout (assuming St. Louis holds up their end of the bargain). With Steven Jackson possibly back, that should also help to possibly balance ...

    Kyle Boller - Kyle has some game in him when he knows that he's not the main man. That will be the case this week, as he fills in for Steve McNair. Against a feeble Buffalo team, Boller should have some success out of the spotlight (which helps his delicate psyche) playing under the radar against the ...

This is an emergency situation, and Gus will be asked to throw it quite a bit. The Rams offense are the play of the week, not to win, but for their players to re-emerge, at ...

    Week 4 Overachievers

    Quarterbacks

    Joey Harrington - Joey stinks. We all know that. However, he's coming off a relatively good game at home; he's at home again against a Houston team that is riddled with injuries, and Byron Leftwich is hanging around waiting for an entry point. These factors lead us to believe that Joey will have a ...

    Cedric Benson can finally focus on what he does best, drink and operate vehicles (both on land and on water). Pictured above is Cedric in all his glory. A well deserved mugshot that he can truly be proud of.

    The Bears have released this underachieving, professionally immature player. Now, it seems, the Bear running game has little direction. Can Matt Forte really come in and take the job? It would seem more likely that the Bears ...

    Today NFL Sirius radio broadcasted from the Denver Broncos camp. We were only able to catch the conversations with the GM Ted Sundquist and some of Jay Cutler, but a lot of good tidbits were thrown out there. These guys are ridiculously high on Travis Henry.

It's also important to keep tabs on what the coaches are saying about the players. A lot of times they will tip their hand as to who they consider the leaders in various position battles. Here ...

It's part of an evolution from traditional re-draft leagues, with their usual serpentine drafting style, to a format that's more interactive.
