Injuries are part of the game, but it is almost unthinkable that the 49ers have gone through two quarterbacks and are now down to a third-string rookie. As favorites to win the NFC West and possibly even the Super Bowl, the 49ers cannot seem to catch a break and their hopes continue to dwindle with every new injury they face.

With nobody on bye, if you … Continue reading Fantasy Football’s Worst: The 49ers Saints Game Destroyed 7 Fantasy Players

We get that the players play to win and don’t really care about Fantasy stats, but we do. Quick decisions, picking up players that are doing well, and leaving players behind that had good Fantasy seasons in 2017 but no longer perform, win … Continue reading Fantasy Football’s Worst: Worst of the Season So Far
