Football is back, baby!

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

I couldn’t have timed my return from vacation any better: After a week of hemming, hawing and delaying a couple votes to end the lockout, the NFL is finally back to work. But unlike yours truly, who had a splendid time in Costa Rica, the NFL has returned from exiling its [...]

The horror that is 18 games

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

Take a look around the NFL and just imagine that in two years, we could be looking at an 18-week schedule. While the common football fan would no doubt fall in love with the idea of more meaningful Sundays, could you imagine being a player and being forced to put your body on the line [...]

Don’t trust the pre-season

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

Are you worried about a guy you want to draft in your fantasy league, but his team has looked like garbage so far? Don’t. I can’t state it any simpler. There’s just no reason to look at the pre-season as any sort of measure of how a team or player will do when the games [...]

Pujols for Howard

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Fantasy

Are you kidding me? Reports are saying that the Philadelphia Phillies have discussed the possibility of trading Ryan Howard for Albert Pujols. This might be the most ridiculous rumour I’ve heard in years.
Firstly, how are the Phillies just discussing this? They could land the best player in baseball by trading away a home run hitter [...]

Closing time

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Fantasy

Well I hope you didn’t draft your fantasy baseball team already; you could be into some closer trouble already. Aside from races that are far from being settled, like the Rays and Jays, one of the premier ninth-inning men has already gone down.
Joe Nathan of the Twins, who had 47 saves and a 2.10 ERA [...]

Banner day for diva WRs

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

To wide receivers had their wishes come true yesterday, and these wishes have been a long time coming too. Braylon Edwards finally forced the Browns’ hand and got them to trade him away while the 49ers were able to put ink to a contract with Michael Crabtree.
Edwards has wanted out of Cleveland since the off-season [...]

Post-Memorial Day madness

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Fantasy

It’s that time of the year in baseball. With teams closing in on the 50 game mark and contenders, pretenders, sleepers and the just plain bad have all pretty much been sorted out, we now have some basis on how to judge what will happen for the remainder of the season.
You can look at a [...]

Manny bringing down Manny

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Fantasy

Finally, someone who was part of the 2004 anything-is-possible Boston Red Sox championship team has been caught by the MLB and handed a drug suspension. It was a big name too: Manny Ramirez.
Poor Manny. If it wasn’t bad enough that he was caught using a PED, he was caught using a female fertility drug, hCG, [...]

Xmas comes early

by Dan Bilicki In: Baseball, Fantasy

The New York Yankees got their man, again. By throwing even more money around, they’ve now landed Mark Teixeira for a whopping eight-year, $180-million deal. Honestly, I’m just happy that the Red Sox didn’t sign him. While the Yanks needed a big bat at first base to move Nick Swisher to a corner outfield spot, [...]

First, first and a first

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football, Picks

The Giants and Titans both got back on track and defeated some tough opponents on the very fields they’ll be defending during the playoffs up until the Super Bowl – if they should make it that far. But the real first that everyone is talking about occurred on the opposite end of the spectrum – [...]
