Roy Helu (credits below) Once upon a time a fantasy player could gain an edge with just a little extra research.  But with the proliferation of the internet and fantasy sites galore, everyone has the same access to all the information.  And there’s a lot of it.  As an obligatory reference to the running title of this article, the stock market experiences the same phenomena as every piece of information is available to every person, and it’s all figured in to the price of a stock. There really is no such thing as a sleeper anymore, and nothing is a secret.  Well, almost nothing.  In the blogosphere era, you can still gain an edge with a little extra research, but you have to dig deeper.  Everyone in your league can click on the ‘points against’ tab on the ESPN fantasy page and find out which teams give up the most fantasy points to opposing QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs.  But what you won’t find is some sort of strength of schedule number telling you the quality of opposing position pla...

Roy Helu a one-man show,but offense still lagging

The numbers that defined the Washington Redskins' offense last week were ugly. That offensive ineptitude, the kind that reached a contemptible level after three straight losses and more than 65 scoreless minutes of football, brought them to the opening kickoff at FedEx Field on Sunday with the understanding that they ...

Wired Up! Week 10

  Hot Off the Grill Roy Helu RB, Redskins In PPR leagues, this guy could be a top 15 RB for the rest of the season, but in standard leagues, think top 20-25 which is starter material.  I’ve got to think that Ryan Torain had his chance and didn’t do a whole lot with it.  My partner has said from ...

Redskins-49ers: First quarter is scoreless

The Redskins began the game with a 16-yard run by Roy Helu, then ran twice more for four yards. On third and six from the Washington 40, Beck threw to Terrence Austin, but the ball was off target, and the Redskins had to punt. The 49ers took over at their 18 and reached Redskins’ territory by mixing the run and pass. The drive stalled, though, when on third and one, San Francisco...

Second Quarter Non Sequiturs

AP Imag If the Redskins had been able to end the half at the 2-minute warning, it would be a much happier feeling in the locker room at halftime Through the first 28 minutes of the first half, the Redskins have found a rhythm that fans haven’t seen since the first half of the Rams game, over a month ago. From committing to the run, to improved coverage in the secondary, the Redskins...

Other notes from today

Shanahan Praises Team Stick-To-It-iveness

AP Image After any tough loss–or tough streak–it’s hard for a coach to find the right things to say to inspire.  Egos get fragile under pressure, and the character and culture of a team can be lost in moments of frustration. Following yesterday’s loss, head coach Mike Shanahan lamented the results, but praised the effort of his men, who did not give in to expectations or...
