Fantasy Football: Old Faces, New Places: Running Backs

Fantasy Football: Old Faces, New Places: Running Backs More than a dozen running backs will put on a new NFL jersey this season, and that's not including the future talent that will be drafted next week. There are still a couple of impactful running backs available on the free agent market, such as DeMarco Murray and the recently released C.J. Anderson to keep an eye on. Some who signed landed in better fantasy football environments, while others are likely to provide a fantasy hit to their stock or new teammates. The…

NFL Team Needs: NFC South

It seemed like every week the teams from the NFC South were causing a ruckus. It started early with Adrian Peterson barking at head coach Sean Payton for playing time. His exit from the team was the catalyst for Alvin Kamara's emergence and the creation of "Boom and Zoom." The ruckus continued with the Kelvin Benjamin trade while Greg Olsen recovered from a foot injury suffered in Week 2. In his stead, rookie Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess began to show up in highlight reels running fake wheel routes. Julio Jones…

Fantasy Football: Week 12 Running Back Matchup Report

Among the many stories coming out of Week 11 was the continued emergence of Vikings’ running back Latavius Murray.

Murray’s weekly touches increased in every game from Week 4 through…

Not to be outdone, the Carolina Panthers repeated the feat the very next night as Christian McCaffrey, Jonathan Stewart, and Cameron Artis-Payne all turned the trick against the Miami Dolphins. Ingram and Kamara are continuing their two-man assault on opposing NFL defenses. Both are top-three running backs in…

Fantasy Football: Week 7 Running Back Matchup Report

One of the headlines in Week 6 was the fallout resulting from the trade of Adrian Peterson from New Orleans to Arizona. Peterson hadn’t shown anything in his brief stint as a New Orleans Saint other than rust and age, rushing for just 81 yards through four games. Immediately following the trade, I texted my friend who is a die-hard Cardinals fan and congratulated him on Arizona furthering their quest to re-create the 2009 all-Pro team. Peterson proceeded to make me look like an idiot (save the jokes, please) and appeared to…
