Fantasy Football Recap | Week 12December 3, 2021 | Brandon Cohran
Week 12 of the NFL season was once again highlighted by several huge performances from running backs across the league. Leonard Fournette won the day by carrying the ball 17 times for 100 yards while adding 31 yards through the air on seven catches. Oh, and he had a cool four TDs on top of the yardage for a 40+ point week. The Atlanta Falcons do-it-all back Cordarrelle Patterson rushed 16 times for 108 and a pair of scores. Dontrell Hilliard for the Derrick Henry-less Titans had 131 on only a dozen carries with a score, too. Mixon, Taylor (again) and Elijah Mitchell all had days that probably led your team to a W, or to an L if they lined up against you. Either way, that’s how it goes sometimes. Read More
Fantasy Football Recap | Week 10November 20, 2021 | Brandon Cohran
Week 10 of the NFL season was a wild ride, to say the least. The craziness started with the Thursday night upset of the Baltimore Ravens losing to the Miami Dolphins by double-digits. Sunday games kept the momentum going when Cam Newton made his Carolina return and secured a 34-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The winless Lions tied the Pittsburgh Steelers -somehow- and the Green Bay Packers held Russell Wilson scoreless for the first time in his NFL career. Fantasy matchups stayed as wacky, as some stars burned out and others never even showed up. Read More
Fantasy Football Recap | Week 7October 29, 2021 | Brandon Cohran
We joined the first bunch of byes in Week 6, and we came back to more than a handful of teams resting up in Week 7. Many of those teams had fantasy rockstars in lineups across the globe, so players were left scrambling on how to replace them for the week. Usual studs like Dalvin Cook, Josh Allen and rookie-sensation Najee Harris all were among players inactive last week. Jacksonville and the LA Chargers took a break, too. Try to replace players for a week or simply stack the deck and take a week essentially off while not having to worry about others? That’s the gamble. Now, let’s see if it paid off.
Fantasy Football Recap | Week 5October 15, 2021 | Brandon Cohran
Quarterbacks are often thought to be the most important position on the field in the NFL. Look at draft classes, MVP Awards and contracts. Love it or hate it, that’s typically how “real football” works. Fantasy Football usually plays by those rules but not always. In Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season, though, it was a Quarterback’s world. Justin Herbert, Josh Allen (with a hurdle) and Lamar Jackson absolutely painted the sky with fireworks throughout the weekend and into Monday Night Football. There were some outliers like Mark Andrews, Austin Ekeler and Johnathan Taylor, sure, but the majority of the weekend what the hell’s are due to stellar quarterback play. Anyway, they get enough praise as is. Let’s get to it.
PorchDrinking Fantasy Football Recap | Week 2September 24, 2021 | Brandon Cohran
Week 2 of the NFL season brought us a myriad of entertaining games, comebacks and unfortunate losses. Looking at you, my poor, poor pitiful Falcons. What the hell was that? Seriously. A lot of the expected stars shined bright while others have yet to show up. Josh Allen and the Bills lit up the scoreboard while underwhelming the fantasy score sheet. Sunday Night Football featured the Kansas City Chiefs visiting Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens and was one of the best football games, at any level, in recent memory. Whether you’re celebrating a W or staring at another L, just know we’re here with you. Grab a beer and see how our matchups went down this week.

Your #2 Fantasy Football PickAugust 27, 2013 | Mike Zoller
If you have the first pick in your fantasy football draft you’re most certainly taking Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson. There’s no one coming off a better season than him and he’s poised to have even bigger numbers this year. But if you have the second pick in the draft who do you take? PorchDrinking.com’s sports writers discussed:
Week 5 Fantasy Football PreviewOctober 4, 2012 | Mike Rucki
I’m sure that, like me, some of you were bitten by the monsters that were masquerading as the San Francisco and Chicago defenses last week. Sometimes you just have to throw your hands up and remember that fantasy football is a cruel, unapologetic beast, and that’s on a good day.
Fantasy Football Weekly PreviewSeptember 28, 2012 | Mike Rucki
I never thought I’d be SO HAPPY to have the regular officials back, but after watching countless replays of the “Inaccurate Reception” from Monday Night, Ed Hochuli and his traveling gun show I’ll be a sight for sore eyes this weekend. I hope everyone read last week’s column and followed my advice, as there was a minimum of 100 points scored between the players I recommended you take a look at. If you branched out on your own, it’s okay, I’m not offended. We’ve just met and trust takes a long time to build. Let’s just hope that you come around before your fantasy football team is mathematically eliminated from play-off contention, eh?
