“Now here’s a guy…..” Steeler’s Smith-Schuster makes football fun

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

No, this isn’t going to be a diatribe on why Cris Collinsworth is awful, nor will it be a diatribe on why he’s amazing.  Collinsworth’s catchphrase is what came to my mind when I thought about Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Now here’s a guy who gets it.  He just does.  He’s one of the younger players in the NFL and he works hard!

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.

Bolt Up and Keep Pounding

Introducing Cindy Davis: Los Angeles (San Diego) Chargers Reporter // @XO_CindyDavis

For me, waking up on football Sunday is equivalent to a kid waking up on Christmas morning. Football has always been my favorite sport and a pretty big part of my life. I was Born in San Diego, CA but bred in Charlotte, NC, which is how I developed my love for both the Chargers and the Panthers.

My dad has always been a huge Charger fan, so I was born into the fanbase. My family also quickly adopted the Panthers as a second team after settling in Charlotte. The older I got, I learned more and more about football, and I was hooked. My love for football was taken to a whole new level in 2008 when I started regularly attending Panther games with my boyfriend. Since that time, I have very rarely missed a home game and I have even traveled to several away games!

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.

Third and Short Week 13 Fantasy Takes with Wanda and Kate



By Wanda Wiedman and Kate Arhar

Another rough week for fantasy owners. If you have Eli Manning on your roster, we are sorry but you will have to bench him since that’s what his own coach did. Shameful.  As always, let’s begin with this week’s starts and sits.

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.

Third and Short Week 12 Fantasy Takes with Wanda and Kate

By Wanda Wiedman and Kate Arhar

Well, it was a rough Week 11 for fantasy owners. Bye weeks are all done so all players are eligible to play. If you have the follower players on your roster, please be aware of their injury status: Wide receivers Robert Woods, Kelvin Benjamin, running backs Chris Thompson and D’Onta Forman. As always, here are this week’s starts and sits.


QB Kirk Cousins: He should have a favorable day. Jared Goff: Another bad matchup against a surging Saints defense… QB Marcus Mariota: Colts have surrendered 6th most fantasy points to QBs Derek Carr: He has thrown for just one TD in seven games. Broncos will emerge.
Matt Stafford does very well on Thanksgiving. A must start.. Josh McCown: Panthers defense will disrupt every pass attempt. Sit him out. Matt Ryan: The Bucs have given up the 4th most points to QBs Case Keenum: Lions have been brutal to QBs.
RB Latavius Murray: Lions have given up big numbers to RBs. Handcuff Jerick McKinnon if need be. Jordan Howard versus Eagles run defense will be difficult to overtake. RB Carlos Hyde: He has Seattle’s number. Marshawn Lynch: Broncos can at least stop the run as of late.
J.D. McKissic: Seahawks will focus on the run against 49ers. Alex Collins: Ravens need the run but won’t do much versus Texans. Duke Johnson: Bengals defense has surrendered big PPR  points to RBs. Joe Mixon: Browns have allowed 31 yds per attempt.
WR Jamison Crowder: Giants have surrendered the 6th most PPR points to slot receivers. Jordy Nelson: With Hundley under center Nelsons production will remain stuffed. WR Mohammed Sanu: His fantasy points are surpassing Julio Jones. Definite start. Larry Fitzgerald: Jags have been brutal versus WRs, plus they are the #1 defense.
Devin Funchess: Jets defense won’t be able to stop Funchess height advantage. Marvin Jones: Vikings will keep this receiver at bay. Rishard Matthews: He has been getting 17+ pts past several weeks and should versus Colts Sammy Watkins: Even with Robert Woods out, still a bad matchup vs Saints
TE Delanie Walker: Mariota will depend on the big TE versus Colts. O.J Howard: Falcons have shut town TEs pretty well all season. TE Vernon Davis: Old but keeps on making separation. Nice matchup versus Giants Charles Clay: Health is questionable and Chiefs are tough on TEs.
Jared Cook: Broncos have allowed an average of 19.5 PPR points per game. Austin Hooper: Bucs have held TEs pretty well this season. Eric Ebron: Kid finds ways to make plays. Julius Thomas: Patriots defense has found its voice. He will have a soft day.
