I am a simple Wisconsin man: I love beer and sports. I decided to create FlurrySports because I was sick of the politics and non-stories that the fat cat corporations put out. When you see football articles from me, just know that I combine my knowledge from playing, coaching, athletic training, and sports management/economic courses to give you a unique, but I feel well-rounded point of view. I am always down to talk about anything, so follow me on Twitter @FantasyFlurry if you decide you want more of me!

Well, that was a pretty uneventful trade deadline. This morning started out hot with the trade of Ajayi to the Eagles, then Adam Schefter said how this was the most active trade deadline in awhile with all the chatter between teams. Everything then went silent. There was no trade news to be had until after the deadline passed. We then found out that Kelvin Benjamin surprisingly was traded to the Bills and the Browns did the most Browns thing ever by not calling the league in time to notify them of their trade for Bengals backup quarterback, A.J. McCarron. This…

The Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills have come to an agreement to send wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo. Panthers Get: 2018 3rd and 7th Round Draft Picks Bills Get: Kelvin Benjamin Kelvin Benjamin is in his fourth year out of Florida State University. His rookie season was his most successful one, catching 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. This marks his only 1,000-yard season. He missed his sophomore campaign with a torn ACL. Benjamin returned to Carolina for his third NFL season and played in all 16 games. Whether it was due to incompetencies from the quarterback position…

The Dolphins and Eagles kick off this Halloween edition of the NFL trade deadline with a trade of the Miami running back to Philadelphia. Eagles Get: Jay Ajayi Dolphins Get: 4th Round Draft Pick Jay Ajayi is in his third season out of Boise State University. After dropping in the draft due to a knee issue, he has struggled to stay healthy on a regular basis. With a backfield full of question marks and injuries of their own, the Eagles could really use a solid runner like Ajayi. Ajayi had a breakout season in his second year, running for 1,272…

There are very few players each week to have confidence in, and they are usually priced up because of it. Because of that, you need a bit of salary relief elsewhere. That is what I’m going to help you with in this article. These are players who could be valuable and help you with roster construction. They are NOT players you’re necessarily targeting, but rather the players that allow you to target the best plays on the board. They are also the ones that may provide low ownership, thus making them good tournament plays. Let’s reach into the bargain bin…

**UPDATED 10/28** Teams on Bye: Packers, Giants, Cardinals, Rams, Titans, Jaguars We are almost at the mid-point of the NFL regular season, which means we are halfway through the fantasy football season! Sad, but true. We are now at the point where the focus begins to be on the playoffs. If you’re sitting pretty atop the league at 7-0 or 6-1, you may want to check out who your players face in the fantasy playoffs. You do not want to get there and lose to the last team in because Alshon Jeffery is playing at Seattle, for example. If you’re…

This is the most dreaded week in fantasy football because of all the teams on bye. Those teams, of course, are the Packers, Giants, Cardinals, Rams, Titans and Jaguars. Looking at this group, the biggest hit we will take is at the running back position. We will be without Jones, Peterson, Gurley, Murray and Fournette. Throw in a suspended Marshawn Lynch, and making the correct waiver claims becomes even more stressful! Let’s jump right into it and see if we can find some gems to win you the championship! I will be giving you some suggestions of players you should…

More injuries, more bye weeks. If there’s one positive thing I can say about the 2017-18 NFL season, it’s that it’s unpredictable. Every game is seemingly a coin flip. At this point in the season, we’re usually talking about which of the remaining unbeaten teams will lose first. This season, there’s only one team left that has only one loss. This team, surprisingly, is the Eagles! I was optimistic about this team heading into the season because of my love for Carson Wentz, but I didn’t even pick them to win the division. I picked the Giants, which…is looking unlikely.…
