Gridiron Gold: Week 5 Fantasy options

Fantasy NFL

It is already that time of week again, having just recovered from MNF and already closing fast on this weeks TNF, and the divisional match up between the Vikings @ the Packers. Only the Dolphins and Raiders are on bye weeks this week, which means all our top players are back possibly making who to play rather than who to look for a tough option. But you know it is always worth having a look to see who is available as now we are really getting an idea of who has fantasy flair or a fantasy fail. And when they fail in reality, they fail in fantasy as well. This week I will be looking at that tool we cannot help but use, the projected score. There is nothing about Gold in this article I just liked the alliteration.

Dolphins 38 – 14 Raiders

There are certain things one learns from being the supporter of an under-achieving sports team. If they can let you down and embarrass you in a prime-time spot, they will. As a fan-for-the-day of the ‘home team’ Oakland Raiders, it was with much sadness that I sat among 83,000,000 others and watched a strong and impressive opening drive become by far the only highlight of a monstrously awful performance that resulted in a London-based rout that would have made even the most hardened member of the Black Hole looking for the exits early.

Four teams facing a season-defining week 4?

We all know that every week in the NFL season is hugely important; being such a short schedule means that the shockwaves from every win and loss are felt more keenly than in any other sport. Although we are obviously still a long way away from ‘crunch time’ and at week 4 no team’s season is ‘over’ and no team’s season is guaranteed to end in success, we still have a huge amount of ups and downs to experience. Still, this week feels to me, for a couple of teams anyway, like the first week in which there are games that they will be looking at as (and I hate the term as much as anybody), must win.

Running in Cirlces in Fantasy land: Week 4 options

Fantasy NFL

Was week 3 just one of those weeks where it was nigh on impossible to make a good decision? It was for me, pretty well made more poor decisions than Louis van Gaal did for Manchester United against Leicester. The common question on facebook was which receivers to play. For me it was which running back to play. There was also one about Greg Olsen. What is more, week 4 is the first bye week and some big scorers are now not available.  And as there have been 3 weeks played, I can start looking at consistency. Hopefully now it will be easier to pick the right mix.

The Gridiron Gentlemen’s Super Prediction Club: Week 4

It’s that time of the week again! We are joined by the usual folks with Russ being benched for Jon who is back playing after serving a suspension. It’s important to note that Russ is still on the facility though. This week we have a game in London between 2 ‘goliaths’ of the game in the Dolphins & the Raiders. Aside from that we have some of the top teams on bye weeks, the oldest rivalry in the league & a cracking Thursday night matchup between 2 hungry NFC East teams. Last week’s winner was Duncan, bottle of Tizer winging its way to him.

Tailgate Knight’s NFL Spread week 4 Tips

Fantasy NFL | NFL Stats

Our guest writer the Tailgate Knight, returns with this weeks spread and his top picks and some exciting news at the end! But first he needs to get the Dolphins off his chest. 

Week 3 saw some interesting results. Personally I got 9 right in week 3 taking me 26-22 for the season. My dad is winning my league with a whopping 35-13. So last week I got two out of the three right from my hot tips. I went with the Saints at -9.5, they beat the spread by beating the Vikings 20-9. The Chargers were my second correct pick. They were the under dogs against the Bills with a +2.5 and they beat the Bills 22-10. The Dolphins however are now the team I am not happy with. In this column, I have picked them in back to back weeks and they have let me down twice. They are dead to me! They had a -4.5 spread against the Chiefs. The Chiefs had been woeful in the first two weeks, were without their star player and they beat the Dolphins 34-15.
