Fantasy Football and Cannabis Oil… Meeting in Between

Leave a Comment | Mark Bybee

The NFL, both in the real world and in fantasy sports, is a real worldwide phenomenon. With people from all over the globe following its games and idolizing players and teams, it is no surprise that the international eye has taken an interest in American Football.
That being said, in any sport, there are various controversies and topics that are almost taboo to discuss in terms of legality and loopholes. CBD oil is one of the hottest topics— and rightfully so because it has been one of the most influential substances that have been used on and off the field to aid in either performance or recovery.
What is CBD Oil?

Leave a Comment | Mark Bybee

Season long fantasy football can be awesome, but we all know it can also be a beating. Extreme highs give to extreme lows, and if you don’t prepare yourself for the long haul, the fantasy playoffs can seem like a daunting task. Learning from our past mistakes is pretty key in licking our wounds and making a strong run the next season if this year’s team didn’t quite hack it.
One good way to try to get better is to retrace the steps of our initial fantasy drafts back in August and see where we went wrong. Even better is to see where we probably should have gone right. This little game isn’t completely accurate, but it’s more than a little interesting to see how things would play out in hindsight.
With that, let’s break down what the first 12 picks of a standard, 12-team league might be if we could re-do our 2014 fantasy drafts knowing what we know now:

Leave a Comment | Mark Bybee

Matchups can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing in fantasy football, which means it’s crucial to keep track of which defenses rank amongst the best and worst in the league in various categories. More specifically, for fantasy purposes, it’s even more important to note which teams do well or poorly against certain positions.
To assist fantasy owners in keying in on the best matchups on fantasy football league websites this week, let’s break down the top defenses to exploit and avoid:
Passing Zone
The Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins are probably the best four matchups to attack when you’re looking at quarterbacks and wide receivers to use on fantasy football league websites. For wide receivers, these defenses are looking rather tasty in week nine, giving guys like Dwayne Bowe, Dez Bryant and Andre Johnson (just to name a few) a very good shot at blowing up this week.
The Chicago Bears are also not very good against the pass, but they’…

It’s getting to be that time of the fantasy football season again, when fantasy football keeper league managers really start to do their work. At this point, you’re either going hard for a trip to the fantasy playoffs, or you’re already game-planning for next season. That can mean you’re already fielding trade offers for picks and/or players, or you’re starting to pay close attention to your own potential fantasy football keepers so you can better decide later which to hold onto and which to let free.
It’s rarely an easy call, especially when big names come into play. However, we’re starting to see some aging or ineffective players that may not be worth keeping around. Guys like Steven Jackson, Reggie Bush and maybe even Doug Martin and Ryan Mathews seemingly just aren’t worth the fuss anymore. If we’re letting some more proven commodities like that go, naturally there will be some more under the radar players to pick up. We’ve got six that you may want to invest in. They don’t necessarily scream “keep me” right now, but ultimately you may want …
