Bear Down!

Introducing Wanda Wiedman: Official Chicago Bears Reporter // @WandaW63

 

I met the love of my life who happened to be from the
Windy City of Chicago! Though I am more of the jock than he is, we are
still a football family.  We have been married for 25+ years.  My son and daughter are grown adults, one of them in college. I admit I am a football junkie. I love hearing about it, watching
it and talking about it.

As a family, we hold our allegiances to the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Blackhawks.  However, I have a special place for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

It was the encouragement of my children that brought me to write about the game I
love. I started blogging and that led me to write for NFL Female, now OurTurf Football.

I love to play Fantasy Football and won two of our leagues taking first
place!  I host a Fantasy podcast, Third and Short with our Cleveland Browns Reporter, Kate. I’m a displaced fan, and I will be attending my first game at Soldier Field in 2017, and hoping to make it a yearly thing!

Media Survey Response – September 2017

Recently, Our Turf Football created a survey to understand how, when, and where NFL fans get/want their news related to their teams or the league.

With so much going on in the NFL both during the season and offseason, we wanted to know how fast you wanted access to breaking news. Not surprisingly, participants noted that they are interested in getting breaking news as soon as it happened.

So You Want To Win In Fantasy, Huh?

Fantasy football predictions are not as easy as we think, are they?

By Emily Chae // @emgchae

This year I have three fantasy teams, two where I play with strangers and one with former co-workers. Regardless of PPR or standard league, there are some players being overlooked this season. This week we will review who were the top dogs on my teams and sleeper picks for week 3.

The off-season was a mess of trades, cuts and new recruits.  This can make fantasy picks a bit tricky this year.   Also, knowing who is injured is critical in a fantasy match up.  Team injuries are always updated here.

Fantasy Football Update Week 2

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Fantasy football predictions are not as easy as we think, are they?

Highlights from each league

Originals League: SUH and a Half Men topped the league with 156.07 fantasy points. She had a tough battle with FitzOn (that’s me) who came in 2nd with 143.53 points. SUH’s top point scorers were QB Philip Rivers (Chargers) with 31.07 and RB C.J. Anderson (Broncos) with 30.40.

>> NEW LEADER: Bongs over Brussels Sprouts

Female Free #1: With another league win, Gpodawund scored 121.98 points in week 2 of fantasy football. Her top performer was RB Ty Montgomery (Packers) scoring 26.00 points. Most of us could have had a win with what was left on her bench. Coming in second place this week is Andria’s Legit Team, 115.32. RB Todd Gurley II (Rams) and WR Mike Evans (Buccaneers) scored 25.10 and 18.80 points, respectively to help her grab a win.

>> LEADER: Gpodawund

Female Free #2: A commanding win was had by BrownLee in this league, scoring 137.40 fantasy points. Kareem Hunt was her top point scorer with TE Rob Gronkowski (Patriots) racking up 20.60 points until sidelined due to injury. Football n Heels finished second place this week, with 112.98 points. Tom Brady topped her team. Sitting on the bench was WR Martavis Bryant (Steelers) with 17.30 points. Might see him moving up the ranks for week 3.

> LEADER: BrownLee
