  • Fantasy start/sit for Week 6: Bernard, Tate should see plenty of action

    Fantasy start/sit for Week 6: Bernard, Tate should see plenty of action
    Injuries are a pain (sorry about that) -- unless you're the beneficiary. That looks to be a recurring theme in Week 6 as key injuries on offense and defense present opportunities for certain players to fill up the fantasy football stat sheets. START...

    Fantasy Wild-Card Wednesday: It gets better (but only for some of you), plus a Marshall trade offer
    I like to think of Week 5 in the NFL as the Day of Reckoning. Of course, it’s not just a day, it’s three days -- ¬†Thursday, Sunday and Monday -- but Weekend of Reckoning sounds like a suburban dad’s garage band. So you can quibble with...
  • Science fiction roundup: 'Bathing the Lion,' more

    Science fiction roundup: 'Bathing the Lion,' more
    Bathing the Lion by Jonathan Carroll, St. Martin's, 280 pages, $25.99 Jonathan Carroll is something of a genius at rug-pulling. In any given novel, it's almost impossible to anticipate when his utterly believable portraits of domestic life might veer...

  • Fantasy waivers: Kyle Orton, Jordan Reed back on radar

    Kyle Orton is back, but is he relevant? The former Chicago Bears quarterback is once again at the helm of an NFL offense. The Buffalo Bills grew impatient with 2013 first-round draft pick EJ Manuel and benched him for Orton on Monday. Coach Doug...

    Fantasy recap: Steve Smith Sr., other vets up to 'old' tricks
    Before Sunday's complete domination of his old team the Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. may have made mention once or twice or 47 times that he's 35 years old. His advanced age no doubt factored into the Panthers'...

    5 fantasy football regrets you'll want to fix
    Week 5 in the NFL is here, and while most fans in the city are gearing up for Sunday's Bears-Carolina matchup, I'm worried about the only fall sport I'm good at nowadays: fantasy football. We're a quarter of the way into the fantasy season and while it'...
  • Fantasy update: Injury developments, plus a bonus reader mailbag

    Fantasy update: Injury developments, plus a bonus reader mailbag
    As anyone who started a Minnesota Vikings player in their fantasy football lineup knows, one injury can have devastating consequences for a whole team -- real or fantasy. It may not be fair to pin the Vikings' offensive futility Thursday night solely on...
  • DirecTV Sets New Deal for NFL Sunday Ticket with Digital Rights

    DirecTV has reached a new multi-year agreement for its NFL Sunday Ticket package of out-of-market football games -- a franchise so important to the satcaster that renewal of the deal became a make-or-break clause in DirecTV's pending merger with AT&T....

    Fantasy mailbag: Trouble at tight end position
    Tribune fantasy football columnist Phillip Thompson answers readers questions. Q. I have Niles Paul and Jordan Cameron for TE’s. I am strong in the RB dept. Is this the week to finally say goodbye to my first-round pick Adrian Peterson and grab...
