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!

**Updated 10/22** Teams on Bye: Lions and Texans I think I ranted enough about injuries, especially the loss of Aaron Rodgers, in this week’s Add/Drop, so I’ll give it a break. There’s nothing witty or charming about this introduction, let’s just get to it! I’m all business this week. I’ll continue to update my rankings throughout the week, as news breaks and TNF finishes, so continue to check back. Bookmark the page if you need to, because these are the only PPR fantasy football rankings you need for week 7. **TNF Players Removed** **You can sort my rankings by position…

I haven’t been able to figure out if this NFL season has been amazing or terrible with the week-to-week craziness. Up until this week, I’ve been leaning towards great. Sure, it means we need to work a bit harder in fantasy and luck is more evident than ever before. But as a fan of football, having no clear Super Bowl favorite will make the second half of the season that much more exciting. Like I said before, those were my feelings up until this week. Those who know me are aware I am a fan of the Packers. On Sunday,…

Not that we wanted to play Odell Beckham Jr. or Brandon Marshall against Denver this week, but I would have liked the option to! Yes, injuries continue to pile up quickly. What else is new? We also have the Seahawks, Cowboys, Bengals, and Bills on bye this week. Those teams feature a few really solid running backs and wide receivers that we’ll miss this week. The absence of all of these studs make paying up for the high performers even more appealing this week. To do so, we’ll need to find some value elsewhere. That is exactly what I’m looking…

**Updated 10/15** Teams on Bye: Bills, Bengals, Cowboys, Seahawks Many fantasy owners are scrambling this week, after the injuries to the Giants receivers and four more teams on bye. If you’re the one in a panic, check out my Add/Drop article for week six. There’s some great “add” options for both the long term and as bye week fill-ins. If you see others in your league panicking, now may be a great time to offer them a trade! Use their distress to your advantage. Luckily, this week seems pretty straightforward for fantasy. There’s some obvious matchups we’ll look to exploit,…

Man, this NFL season. If you have managed to go undefeated in your league to this point, props to you. Luck is certainly on your side. Not Andrew Luck, of course, but real luck. The luck that is nice to have. The kind that benefits you and doesn’t let you down. I mean, if luck let you down, that would be bad luck. Andrew Luck, if you will. Did I draft Andrew Luck thinking he’d miss only a couple weeks? Strange you ask, but maybe…I’m not bitter. I’m actually not too terribly bitter since I grabbed Deshaun Watson. He has…

The Peterson-Saints marriage got off to a rocky start after seeing just nine snaps against his former team week one. Video of Peterson shouting at Head Coach Sean Payton went viral, and things never seemed to change through the first month of the NFL season. It became not a question of if Adrian Peterson would be moved, but when. The question was answered Tuesday morning, as the Saints traded Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional pick, per sources. The Cardinals have had an underwhelming five weeks of football, highlighted by the injury week one of All-Pro running…

Sunday Night Football was a rough one for the Houston Texans, as they lost more than the game. The ridiculous injury trend across the NFL continued last night with both J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus, who both are done for the season. Three-time Defensive Player of the Year, J.J. Watt, suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg. Watt has proved to be one of the most dominating forces in recent history. “Any time you lose any player, obviously a player of J.J.’s stature, it’s always tough,” Texans defensive back Jonathan Joseph said. Obviously his performance in-game is nearly impossible…

We have an interesting slate ahead of us this week. To start, we have four teams on bye: Falcons, Saints, Redskins, and Broncos. With these four teams out, and the Patriots and Buccaneers having already played, there are a lot of fantasy studs that we will not be able to use. This is especially present at the quarterback position, since we are missing Ryan, Brees, Cousins and Brady. These are four great players, despite the current MVP’s struggles to start the year. With them out, that also means there’s some really valuable pass-catchers that we will miss. These include Julio…
