Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Football isn’t over!

We have the rare opportunity of watching a new league unfurl before our very eyes in 2019. It’s not the NFL, but it is 10 weeks of the game we love. Four games are played each weekend, two on Saturday, two on Sunday. CBS Sports Network will be broadcasting the games.

Players have been brought together from many sources to form this league. New rules have been utilized to add quickness to the game. Coaches have been busy testing personalities and strengths for the winning combination. It’s new and it’s happening.

Our Turf Football has a short 5-question, multiple-choice survey to help you get to know more about the league. Click the link below to get started.

Three Rookies to Watch at Patriots Camp

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Every year, training camp proves decisive for a handful of players. It’s where jobs are won and lost. It’s where careers start and stop.

With Julian Edelman suspended for four games and both the secondary and backfield in flux, Pats camp is shaping up to be crucial for a few newcomers to Foxborough.

Fantasy Football 2017 Season Recap

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

I won! I won a championship!

My theory going into the 2017 NFL fantasy football season was to play the numbers. I drafted the highest I could when my turn came, focusing on wide receivers and running backs in the early rounds. Five of our six leagues did not have a kicker on the roster.

Each week, my starters were selected by using the players who had the highest projected stats going into the week’s games. When a player was injured and out for the season, I then replaced said player with the top player available in that position on the league’s list.

Fantasy Football Update Week 12

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

The fantasy football league playoffs are looming ever closer. Currently, I stand at 4th place in three leagues and 7th in the other two. I have some work to do. On a high note, at least one of my five teams has been the top point scorer in it’s league most weeks.

As a reminder to new readers, I am going strictly by the projected points each week. If a player has higher stats than the other, in they go to my week’s lineup. The grades after my original draft were all B or higher.

Here are the top point getters for the season, so far, in each position courtesy of fantasypros.com:  At quarterback – Russell Wilson, running back – Todd Gurley, wide receiver – Antonio Brown, tight end – Rob Gronkowski, kicker – Greg Zuerlein, team defense – Jacksonville Jaguars and defensive player – Bobby Wagner.

Alvin Kamara had an outstanding week once again.

Heading in to Week 13 of the NFL, these are the division leaders. Definitely some surprises if you think back to Labor Day weekend and you were doing a division pick ’em for the upcoming 2017 season.
