  • Patriots wide receivers Wes Welker, left, and Chad Ochocinco should both finish in the top 25 in fantasy points this season.

    Ranking fantasy football wide receivers tougher than ever Aug 26, 2011 12:00 AM
    I feel pretty good about the top 16 wide receivers, but after that ... wow. This much is for sure: It’s going to be a crazy year in which more players than usual who aren’t even ranked will be waiver-wire pickups as the season progresses.

  • Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers has averaged 28.7 TD passes and 4.3 TD runs since becoming a starter in 2008.

    Rodgers or Vick? Who is No. 1 fantasy QB? Aug 25, 2011 12:00 AM
    I'm giving the slight nod to Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who missed most of two games in 2010 yet still threw for 3,922 yards, ran for 356 and had 32 total touchdowns. Vick missed most of five games, threw for 3,018 yards, ran for 676 and amassed 30 total TDs.

  • Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden should take it to the next level behind a superb run-blocking line.

    Fantasy football: Foster, Peterson top of the running back class Aug 24, 2011 12:00 AM
    Adrian Peterson? Arian Foster? Chris Johnson? Who does John Dietz say is this year's No. 1 running back for fantasy football? And who are his sleepers and players to avoid?

  • The solution to college bowl apathyJan 9, 2011 12:00 AM
    Remember when New Year's Day used to mean something in the world of college football? Remember when you cared about how a title contender fared in the Sugar Bowl because it directly affected the other contender in the Orange Bowl? Or the Rose Bowl? Or the Cotton Bowl?

  • New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady deserves the MVP award, according to Daily Herald fantasy football voters.

    Fantasy voters come out strong for Brady, VickDec 30, 2010 12:00 AM
    Consistency. That’s all we really ask out of our fantasy football players, and especially our studs. We don’t want the Chris Johnsons, Dwayne Bowes and Aaron Rodgers of the world giving us multiple clunkers during the season.

  • Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick likely will be a first-round pick in many fantasy football drafts next season. He leads the NFL in fantasy scoring this year.

    Fantasy football tips for 2011Dec 23, 2010 12:00 AM
    Merry Christmas, everybody! As we get set to wrap up another exciting season, I thought this would be a perfect time to look forward to next season (assuming there is one). A few years ago, I remember someone saying they went to their draft with fantasy leaders from the second half of the season. They figured whomever was hot at the end of one year would keep it up the following season.

  • Tom Brady has thrown 29 TD passes and just 4 interceptions. Is that enough to earn him your fantasy MVP vote?

    Vote in Daily Herald's annual fantasy football awardsDec 16, 2010 12:00 AM
    It’s that time of year again. Time for praise. Time to vent. Time to blast and rip the players who did you wrong. Yes, welcome to the 12th annual Daily Herald fantasy football awards.

  • Fantasy studs and duds Dec 12, 2010 12:00 AM
    Plenty of fantasy players woke up Sunday morning and yanked Tom Brady out of their lineups, but he was nothing short of spectacular in delivering a 369-yard, 2-TD day against the Bears. Even more impressive was the day Darren McFadden had. The Raiders’ RB had 123 rushing yards, 86 receiving and scored 3 long-distance touchdowns in an all-world performance that likely advanced many fantasy teams into the next round.

    Dominant fantasy teams few and far between Dec 9, 2010 12:00 AM
    Partiy, as we all know, is running rampant throughout the NFL. Only the AFC West has a division leader with more than a 1-game advantage, and that means fans are in for an intense final month of the season.

  • Fantasy football studs and dudsDec 5, 2010 12:00 AM
    All that consternation. All that worrying. And for nothing. Adrian Peterson owners twisted and squirmed all week, praying their injured stud could go against the Buffalo's league-worst run defense. Well, all Peterson did was run for 107 yards and 3 TDs as the Vikings dominated in a 38-14 victory

  • Impossible to replace Gore ... but some options exist Dec 2, 2010 12:00 AM
    While messing around on Facebook this week, I ran across a post by one of my brother’s friends that read, “Norm Klebba has just had his fantasy season flushed down the toilet.” It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what happened to poor, old Norm.

  • Much like in Baltimore, the Pittsburgh pass defense is having difficulty shutting down receivers. Quarterbacks against the Steelers and Ravens have averaged more than 300 yards per game over the last five games.

    It’s time to take advantage of struggles by Steelers, RavensNov 18, 2010 12:00 AM
    The Steelers and the Ravens. With their ruthless, hard-hitting, make-you-work-for-every-inch defenses, these are two teams that make us cringe when our fantasy football players go up against them.

  • Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch is a good bet to roll up the rushing yards against Arizona this week, says John Dietz.

    Fantasy football commish deserves props Nov 11, 2010 12:00 AM
    The commish. It’s a job few fantasy football participants want, but one brave soul in every league puts themselves in the line of fire year in and year out.

  • San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (85) drags Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin, left, while gaining 15 yards on a pass-completion during the first half of an NFL football game on Oct. 31 in San Diego.

    Injury bug strikes our first-half MVPNov 4, 2010 12:00 AM
    It's that time of year again time to dole out the midseason fantasy football awards. Time to heap praise upon our studs and blast the duds. So without further adieu ... My first-half MVP award goes to none other than ... (envelope, please) ...

  • Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was impressive against the Baltimore Ravens, and has scored the most fantasy points in the NFL since Week 4.

    Bills QB impresses fantasy ownersOct 28, 2010 12:00 AM
    The Bad News Bears. Charlie Brown. George McFly. Lovable losers, all. We laugh at their ineptitude and sympathize with their plight (good-ol Chuck just never gets to kick that football).

  • Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams is tackled by Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings during Sunday's game at Soldier Field in Chicago.

    Five receivers on the radar screenOct 21, 2010 12:00 AM
    The bone-jarring hit DeSean Jackson took Sunday left the Eagles WR with a severe concussion that will likely cost him multiple games.

  • If Aaron Rodgers doesn’t play this week, there are other options for fantasy football owners who lost their starting QB.

    Fantasy team hurting? Help is on the way Oct 14, 2010 12:00 AM
    Screeeeeeeeech! Ka-BOOM! CRASH! Like a six-car pileup on a Chicago expressway, Packer after Packer went down in a heap last week in Washington.

  • Ten trends all fantasy football owners should know about Oct 7, 2010 12:00 AM
    Four weeks. By the time you reach your mid-20s, it's about the amount of time you need to determine whether a dating relationship has the chance to blossom into something serious. Four weeks.

  • Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is tackled by Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins (36) and linebacker A.J. Hawk during the first half of an NFL football game Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, in Chicago. (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato)

    Time to sell high with ForteOct 1, 2010 12:00 AM
    Listen up, Matt Forte owners: It's time to start thinking trade. The Bears' running back is off to a decent start and many owners out there might still have visions of him racing 89 yards against the Lions or of him nabbing that easy TD against the Cowboys.

  • Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has the ball knocked loose as he fumbles during the second half Sunday in Minneapolis against the Miami Dolphins.

    Fantasy football check: When to bench, when to show patienceSep 23, 2010 12:00 AM
    You left your draft feeling good. Nice running backs. Solid QB. Up-and-coming wide receivers. Two weeks later, there's a pit in your stomach and you're racing for the Pepto because Shonn Greene, Jamaal Charles, Pierre Garcon, Robert Meacham and Dwayne Bowe are all MIA.
