NFL Power Rankings: Fantasy Edition

Written By: Iggy Max
www.TradeDebate.com
1) Green Bay Packers – Just like the real power rankings, the Packers are the best offense in the league right now.  While their running game is non existent, the way Aaron Rodgers and the Wr’s are playing you cant have anyone ranked ahead of them.
2)  New Orleans Saints – Second highest scoring team in the NFL, as well as the second best fantasy QB.  While most people look at the Saints backfield and think running back by committee, Sproles has been …

The 10 Fantasy Commandments

Written By: Johan Lang
www.TradeDebate.com
1) Thou cannot predict the future. When you make fantasy trades, sometimes you get gold and sometimes you get is a pile of crap. In the end, some deals work and some deals don’t, but that’s just the way the ball bounces.
2) Thou can’t always trust the stats. Or the name. Remember this isn’t a real relationship; all you’re really asking for is a high level of production and consistency. You don’t want 1 terrific night followed by ten miserable ones. Also known …

Applying the “Suck for Luck” Strategy to Fantasy

Written By: Joe Finch
www.TradeDebate.com
As the old proverb goes, “sometimes you need to hit rock bottom before you can get back up.”  Well, if that theory holds true, wouldn’t it be wise to try and plummet as fast as possible and expedite the recovery phase, as opposed to dying a slow death?
This season, there is a phrase going around the NFL, known as the “Suck for Luck” campaign. Coveted Stanford QB, Andrew Luck, is a sure bet to be the #1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. …

Moving the Needle

Written By: Johan Lang

With week 10 upon us it is time to put up or shut up. Many owners find themselves sitting right in the thick of the playoff chase should be viewing week 10 as the make or break week of their season. In a very short 14 week season, every match up matters, and none are bigger than week 5, 10, and of course 14. These three weeks usually create separation within fantasy leagues as many teams survive to live another week, …

By: Joe Finch

You walk into work 15 minutes late, per the usual. After a quick reaming from the boss man, you sit down at your desk, wipe the remaining morning crust from your eyes, and get ready to endure another day of monotony. That is, of course, until you login to your email account to find a message from your Yahoo fantasy league. The message reads, “A trade has been proposed to you from another league member.

By Johan Lang
www.TradeDebate.com
It was an ugly week. One that was filled with injuries to many name players and scores that made you think you were watching the World Series (See: Cleveland/Seattle). Although it wasn’t the prettiest day the NFL has seen, it did have its share of winners, and many many losers. In the end though, if your home team or fantasy team came out with a W, survived one of the many devastating injuries, or was just lucky enough to not have endure …

The Carson Palmer Trade: Fantasy Fallout

Written By: Johan Lang
www.TradeDebate.com
The real winner of this trade is Bengal’s owner Mike Brown, who didn’t budge when disgruntled Carson Palmer moaned and groaned about how he would rather retire than play for an overachieving Cincinnati team. With a strong nucleus now in tow (Andy Dalton and A.J. Green) the Bengal’s organization is clearly on the upswing, and now can build around two extra first (most likely a first and a second after the season plays out) round picks.
As Mike Brown showers in the …

By: Joe Finch
www.TradeDebate.com
“I don’t want an Ipod, I have a Walkman that works just fine.”
“Instant replay ruins the integrity of sports.”
“You can never trust a car’s navigation system.”
If you find yourself agreeing with any of the sentiment above, STOP READING IMMEDIATELY! For the rest of you non-traditionalists who thought great ideas were lost when Steve Jobs left us, I present to you the next revolutionary concept—fantasy football, sans kickers.
Before fantasy football emerged on the scene, people added suspense to their NFL game day by turning to office pools, parlay cards, …

Fantasy Impact of Brandon Lloyd Trade

By Johan Lang
www.TradeDebate.com
Every year the NFL trade deadline comes and goes without much more than a few potential trades that usually never end up happening, and this year is no different except that a trade did actually happen. Brandon Lloyd being shipped to the Rams for a fifth round pick, although not exactly a blockbuster, does have fantasy implications.
Lloyd, the top-scoring wide receiver in fantasy football last year, will be looking to hit it big with his new team and get one last pay day for himself. At 31, the …
