Week 7 is here! On this week’s episode, our experts break down all the happenings leading up to kickoff. These include the big news of Devonta Freeman being placed on IR.

Week 6 Wrap-Up: As Le'Veon Bell looms, is James Conner destined to disappear?

Many people predicted what Brock Osweiler would do against the Bears. Those three interceptions and two lost fumbles were...oh wait. No, no, Osweiler decided to cover for an injured Tannehill and proceed to light up one of the best defenses in the NFL. Then Dak Prescott and the Cowboys followed Osweiler's lead by ripping the Jaguars defense to the tune of 40 points. That's Week 6 for you. Some things weren't shocking though, like Todd Gurley going nuts in Denver and James Conner having a day...

Week 5 Preview: Re-drafting the 2018 fantasy season

If you had the chance to start your fantasy football season from scratch — to draft once again — who would you take in the first round? How would a fantasy draft end up looking today?

Since we've gone a quarter-way through the NFL season and about a third of the way through the Fantasy regular season, Yahoo experts Liz Loza and Dalton Del Don decided to think about...


Week 4 Wrap-Up: Money-Making Mitch and the revenge of the QB

Much was made of the apparent demise of Tom Brady and Andrew Luck and Mitchell Trubisky (was he ever alive?), but Week 4 proved that perhaps those assumptions were ill-advised. Luck put up a performance that silenced his critics (at least for the week) and Brady returned home to utterly dominate the division-leading Miami Dolphins. Yet those performances paled in comparison to what Trubisky did to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Liz Loza, Scott Pianowski, and Matt Harmon break down those...
