Fantasy Hockey

Augie Truesdale - Apr 15, 2016

Convinced he had no way to chew food and would die of choking or starvation, I sent Brent Burns away for Claude Giroux. BRAINY SPORTS #1 Hockey is really the finest of the big four. It has elegance, it has rough edges, it has an amazing new 3-on-3 overtime. It has the highest quality of […]

Late last month a federal appeals court denied New Jersey’s bid to legalize sports gambling at racetracks and casinos.  It was the latest setback in a growing movement that, for now, seems like a finger in the crack of an exploding dam. Legalized sports gambling is gaining momentum, and it’s difficult to see how anything […]

In light of the NHL handing out their awards this week, I thought it was only right that the Fantasy Hockey Awards be handed out as well.

Many fantasy GM’s think that once a player hits age of 30, his value diminishes. This is nothing but The Old Man Myth in Fantasy Hockey.

Goalie Matt O’Connor signed a two-year, entry level contract with the Ottawa Senators. This decision adds to Ottawa’s Busy Crease Situation.

When creating a team for a playoff fantasy pool, it’s normally a good idea to take the top players on the teams you think will go on a deep run. After the first few rounds though, you’ll need to have good secondary scorers to round out your team. Today we will look at some names […]

At the start of this season, Ondrej Pavelec was the clear starter for the Winnipeg Jets. He had the big contract and the pedigree, so to speak. His backup, Michael Hutchinson, only had three NHL games  under his belt heading into this year so when he started stealing starts from Pavelec, many were a little […]

With most trade deadlines in the rear view mirror, fantasy hockey leagues, depending on the size, are either in playoff mode or about to start the “second season.” This means rosters are pretty much set and GMs are hoping they did enough to contend…Or so they thought. Lately, it would appear that a few starting […]

Today we’ll take a look at a few players in the western conference that should receive a boost in their fantasy value.

As we draw towards the end of the fantasy regular season, it’s important to plan for the future in our keeper leagues.

This season has been Phil Kessel’s Questionable Fantasy Season. For fantasy owners out there, it has been a bitter pill to swallow.

Brandon Altomonte - Mar 9, 2015

While some of the bigger names such as Jaromir Jagr, Erik Cole, Keith Yandle, and Jeff Petry are expected to have an increase in fantasy value with their new teams, today we’ll look at other players in the Eastern Conference that should see a boost in their fantasy value. Players That Should Thrive With Their […]

Big week in fantasy hockey as this marks the first round of playoffs for leagues where matchups are two weeks long. Also, this week saw the trade deadline pass for most standard Yahoo fantasy leagues. In a perfect world everyone made great trades that benefitted both parties. However, we know that this rarely happens and […]

Chris Pudsey - Mar 3, 2015

With the weeks leading up to the NHL trade deadline being as active as it was, it was no surprise that deadline day itself was a little anticlimactic. If you are a hockey fan at any level, it’s a good chance you were checking your twitter feed throughout the day or sitting in front of […]

In your NHL keeper league, your trade deadline is just around the corner. If your team is out of the playoff race, it’s time to start focusing on next year

Cody Flavell - Feb 24, 2015

Much of the past few days have been dominated by golf news. National media outlets and local outlets alike are talking about the PGA-LIV Golf merger. The politics and such have been discussed ad-nauseam since the news broke early this week. I won’t be discussing any of that. My focus is on what the new […]

Cody Flavell - Feb 24, 2015

It’s hard to keep a smile on your face as an amateur golfer. Golf is hard and not many things go right for you over the course of a round. Even for the professionals on the PGA Tour, shots that aren’t executed often elicit negative reactions by the golfer that hit the shot. This never […]

Traditionally, only very committed golf enthusiasts pay close attention to Final Qualifying for entrance to the U.S. Open. 2023 is not a traditional year. As the normally quiet U.S. Open Qualifying process whittles over 10,000 entrants down to 156  players who will compete at the Los Angeles Country Club from June 15-18, several story lines […]

In 1986, the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) was created. It is a point system that uses a players’ finishing positions over a “rolling” two-year period. The system has worked for a long time. It is considered a pretty accurate depiction of how highly a player is ranked within the golf world. However, the system […]

Golf can be a cruel game. Anyone who’s ever picked up a golf club can attest to this. To become a professional, one most devote an inordinate amount of time into the game. Lessons, practice rounds, hire coaches. All of this is part of getting to a point where you can become an elite player. […]

Justin Thomas PGA
Cody Flavell - Feb 24, 2015

As of this past week, Justin Thomas is officially a 30-year old. Thomas has 15 PGA Tour wins to his name, two of those being major championships: the 2017 and 2022 PGA Championship. Ask most golfers and they would be thrilled to have that resume at any point in their career, let alone as a […]

It’s Masters time, the first Major in the golfing calendar and one of the most eagerly anticipated editions arguably ever with plenty of sub plots in a narrative that has everyone hooked (excuse the pun). Here we countdown the our thoughts on who will triumph with a Top 10 in order of who could taste […]
