Lesley Tedeschi Aug 13th 2:41 PM EDT.

In a mere 24 days from now the 2018 football season will be in full swing! Opening day is getting closer and closer with each passing minute, and that means fantasy football drafts are starting!

Some leagues have already begun drafting and if that works for players great! Other leagues wait until closer to opening day to draft to make sure all available players are healthy. The next three weeks are going to be crazy full of information coming out of training camps and preseason games. Who will make the final roster, stay healthy, and rise from the bottom to the top?


Best Strategy for Drafting a Running Back in 2018 Fantasy Season

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 9th 4:12 PM EDT.

Draft season is here and running backs will once again be the top players to get drafted first in most leagues. There are so many quality running backs to choose from this year the sky is the limit!

Most fantasy players see the elite running backs taken right off the bat and no one looks back. Before you know it it is round three and the obvious running backs are gone, but fear not with a little extra research you can still grab great backs deeper into the draft. The running backs that go quickly are the guys who can run the ball for tons of yardage, carry for a minimum of 15 times and be a threat to haul in passes.


Where Should Carson Wentz Be Drafted for Fantasy Football Team?

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 8th 5:25 PM EDT.

The news out of Philadelphia right now is that Carson Wentz is still not ready to take the field during the first few preseason games. Some people believe that Wentz could not only miss the preseason but he might miss the first few games of the regular season as well. As of this moment there is no official word from the Eagles camp on what they are planning to do with Wentz.

Obviously the Eagles want their quarterback back at the helm, hurling balls through the air and moving around the field like a gazelle as soon as possible. Wentz himself has stated that he will be ready to go for the start of the season and doesn't see a reason why he would remain sidelined. The Eagles have kept him out of the 11-11 practice field drills this week in order not to push him too fast. Wentz is ready to play, but the Eagles might be holding him out of preseason just to give him a little extra time to heal.

The 2018 football season starts in exactly 30 days! It is time to get all your football gear ready to wear as you cheer on your team and enjoy every Sunday they way they should be!

Ervin Santana To Return Wednesday

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 23rd 4:00 PM EDT.

The Minnesota Twins are excited to welcome back right-hander Ervin Santana on Wednesday.

This will be the first time Santana has been available to play this season, after undergoing surgery to remove calcium deposits from his right middle finger. Santana was originally hoping to return to the field in May, but suffered several setbacks during his recovery. His first issue was not being able to grip the ball, followed by having trouble throwing his slider, and if those weren't enough his velocity was lacking too. So needless to say his road back was rough and took longer than expected.


Jesse Winker Strong Pick-up

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 14th 1:29 PM EDT.

The fantasy baseball season is well underway at this point, and there's still plenty of time left to turn your team around if you need to!

Outfielder Jesse Winker of the Cincinnati Reds' is proving to be a very hot pick-up and a must start. Winker had a slow start to his rookie season, but has picked things up at the plate recently. Over the course of his last 20 games he has gone 23-for-55 with four home runs and 20 RBIs. This is definitely a player to add to your team for the next half of the season!


DeMarco Murray Announces Retirement

Lesley Tedeschi Jul 13th 3:06 PM EDT.

After playing seven seasons in the NFL, running back DeMarco Murray has officially retired today.

Murray did not have the strongest season in 2017 with the Titans, and the team released him back in March. He was the lead back for both seasons he played there, but unfortunately this past season he just couldn't get things going. It was his lowest career year for yards rushing and carrying, and he didn't break 1,000 yards for the season.
