15 FANTASTICAL FANTASY FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS FOR THIS WEEKEND

I WOW, what a way to start NFL’s week 3. With a game that by all rights should have been uglier than that girl you hooked up with that one time on New Years at the Foundation Room (yeah I’m looking at you ____ ) on the schedule, the frog turned into a prince of a game. Jared Goff took steps to separate himself from the Blake Bortles dud crowd, and made the Rams feel much better about passing on Carson Wentz. It also initiated what I think is going to be a week known as the week of the…

WELL THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY

The banner had been revealed, Roger Goodell had been booed off the field, and crazy train was still echoing around Foxborough when the Patriots systematically marched down the field to take a quick 7-0 lead to open the 2017 NFL season. On the ensuing Kansas City possession, third round pick Kareem Hunt out of Toledo coughed the ball up on his first touch. Those first few minutes were the film negative of how the remaining portion of the game unfurled. The end result of which was what felt like the 2014 pounding that jumpstarted the run for the Patriots’ 4 Lombardi Trophy.…

YOUR CLIFF NOTES NFL PREVIEW

ITS HERE! Today is the day the Patriots raise their 5th banner, and Stephen Gostkowski kicks off to D’Anthony Thomas to open the 2017 NFL season (because you know the Pats will defer if they win the toss). You’ll find here a quick run down of how the season will play out. So if you plan on canceling your television services for the next 5 months, or going into a medically induced coma and wont be able to catch the games this season, you’ve come to the right place! Lets take a look at the standings in the NFC: EAST New…

Adopting a College Football Team

Football is upon us! The NFL kick off is less than a week away, but the college ranks have already stumbled to the stadium from their tailgating efforts ready to cheer on their favorite squad. In our close knit Ducking Group, there are more than a couple college football fans. ( The Duckers ) Of the seven, only ONE of them actually claim their alma mater as their go to squad. JJ reps FSU, even though he’s likely never even stepped foot on their campus. Slim Mex reps the Arizona Wildcats in spite of having played D3 ball at Lewis &…

THE AFC EAST JUST PUNTED

The 2017 NFL season is a little over a week from opening night, and the New England Patriots have already been crowned the division champs for the season. There is a better chance of Saint Mary’s School for the Blind knocking off Alabama this season than there is of the Patriots not securing their division. The odd part is that its seemingly as much on purpose as it is anything else. The Jets, and Bills have seemingly punted on the season already. The Dolphins believed they were positioned, if not to challenge the Patriots, then at least to secure a…

FANTASY FOOTBALL OVERALL ADENDUM

Its here, National Fantasy Football Draft weekend! My dance card this weekend is full. A keeper league draft Saturday morning, another draft pre-fight Saturday night. Sunday will find me waking up before the roosters for another draft before a relaxing live in person draft/pool party where I’ll likely be making my selections sitting in the pool with a stylish youreduckingright.com stein mug full with Angry Orchard (available for purchase here!: 16 Oz. Youre Ducking Right Stein Mug ) But before you get into your drafts, make sure you’ve read through our Fantasy Football Draft series. The series wrap up, with links…

…AND THEN THERE WERE 53

Thursday, September 7th. Three weeks from this evening, the 2017 NFL season kicks off in Foxborough, Massachusetts. You can pretty much be guaranteed of three things happening. The 95 will become a parking lot after the game. Andy Reid will be disappointed in whatever bbq he finds in the area (but he’ll still eat it). And grown men will pretend like they’re 16 year old girls seeing the Beatles step off the plane when Tom Brady (christened the Greatest American Hero Alive by The Dude) runs out of the tunnel. As we prepare for game 2 of the NFL pre-season…

Over Under and All Around

The NFL season is just 26 long gutt wrenching days away. In the interim we’ll have some NFL pre-season action (which is like watching Goodfellas on network television, watered down, unrealistic, and not nearly as satisfying as the real thing), some baseball, a little Quail Hollow PGA Championship action (Jason Day is taking it this weekend), and can we possibly get Carmelo and Kyrie traded? I’m getting tired of the will they-won’t they-you know they’re gonna action from the Knicks and Cavs, its like watching Ross and Rachel without getting to watch Jennifer Aniston. In the meantime you should take…

FANTASY FORECAST – TEAM DEFENSE

Yaaaaawwwwwnnnnn, well, after trudging through the boring Quarterbacks, and skill position guys we now get to the fun stuff. Team Defense! Woo Hoo!!!! Its like a party for your eyes. We’re going to give you the top 10 fantasy defenses for this upcoming season. Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean these are the top 10 defenses in the NFL, but rather the top in fantasy. What’s the difference you may ask? Well, if the Vikings defense gives up 25 points to the Patriots, and the Jaguars defense gives up 15 points to the Browns you could easily make the argument that…
