    When Yahoo's fantasy football website went down Sunday, it left many owners in the dark.

    How alert fantasy owners can avoid upcoming crashesOct 19, 2012 12:00 AM
    I've always thought of myself as an excellent driver. No real accidents to speak of. Very few tickets. Avoiding accidents is 99 percent anticipation and always assuming the jamoke in the next lane is exactly that — a total jamoke. This parallel can easily be drawn into the world of fantasy football, and our ability to anticipate a player's rise to prominence or his fall from grace. So this week's column is dedicated to four soon-to-be jamokes that are about to send your team crashing into a fiery abyss. The solution to the upcoming pile-up is simple: Have the foresight to trade them now before their head-on collision with futility becomes reality.

    A fair way to pick up fantasy football free agents Sep 13, 2012 12:00 AM
    Free-agent pickups. They are critical to the success of any fantasy team, and savvy owners win championshps by identifying future studs early.
