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 9/24** Injuries…ugh. Clearly the NFL has it all figured out. If you limit the amount of days players can take contact before the season, there’s less of a chance of injury, right? Wrong…clearly. I could’ve told you that before the season. Actually, I did, but this is getting ridiculous. There are a few star players around the league who will miss extended time to start the season, and there also are about another dozen stars whose status is still up in the air for this week. For this reason, make sure you bookmark this page. I want you to…

How about those rushing performances by a few of the league’s top backs? Yikes. That doesn’t even include last year’s leader in rushing touchdowns, LeGarrette Blount, going without a single rushing attempt. There is some panic among fantasy owners, and rightfully so. This week showed that you may have a near perfect draft, but that doesn’t mean anything when we get into the season. My two starting running backs in a league are Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy. I thought I would be looking at an undefeated season with the roster I had, but much like the Patriots, I was…

The week two slate brings some obvious elite plays, but they are certainly priced accordingly. The Patriots are motivated as they head to New Orleans after their loss, but you will have to pay $7,900 for Brady, $8,200 for Cooks, and $6,900 for Gronkowski over at DraftKings. Hefty price tags, but they could be worth it. If you are looking to get elite plays like the three mentioned above, you’ll need to search for salary relief elsewhere. That is exactly what this article is about! These are players who could be valuable and help you with roster construction. They are…

*Rankings updated 9/17* Week one can be summed up with injuries, early draft picks underperforming, and overall poor quarterback play. Seriously, it was bad. Two of the top three scoring quarterbacks are generally known as “game managers,” Alex Smith and Sam Bradford. The rest of the top-five included Stafford, Siemian, and Wentz. Aaron Rodgers finished as QB13, Tom Brady as QB19, and Drew Brees as QB16. If there was a perfect argument for my strategy that I preach every preseason of drafting quarterbacks late, this week was it. Of course, this was only week one. Generally early in the season,…

We made it through the first week of the NFL season! Hopefully you got a win and escaped without injuries to your roster. Unfortunately, not everyone was this lucky, myself included. The first few weeks on waivers can win or lose you the season, so get your picks in quickly! I will be giving you some suggestions of players you should add or drop, with each player’s ownership in ESPN leagues. Add QB Tyrod Taylor, BUF (16.5%) Tyrod is a player that I suggested to pick up last week, and he makes the list yet again. I suggest you read…

“Are you crazy? Did you eat paint chips as a kid? The season hasn’t even started yet!” A little bit, none of your business, and exactly. Sure, you just drafted what seems to be the fantasy equivalent of the 1992 Dream Team, but don’t be blinded by your confidence. You must always be alert of potential roster moves if you want to bring home the championship this year. While these roster moves I’m about to propose are not vital, you should still consider them. For the players I think you should “add,” I will provide the ownership percentage across ESPN…
