Straight cash homie! In his never-ending quest to pay off his kids' college education early, Brad Evans unveils his FanDuel picks for the upcoming week and explains his reasoning behind them. Make that money, #TeamHuevos.
FAKE BUDGET: $60,000
Tom Brady, NE, QB (FanDuel Price: $8,000) – Tom Tepid's early season cameo seems like a millennium ago. Tripping out of the gate to start the season, the QB has rediscovered his 'Terrific' side. Since Week 5, no passer has delivered more treats than Brady. During that stretch, he's completed nearly 70 percent of his attempts, compiled 317 yards per game and posted an impeccable 14:0 TD:INT split. Denver's secondary has executed a high level this year, but in a game Vegas believes will be chock full of fantasy goodness (55 over/under), Mr. Bundchen exceeds the 300-yard mark with 3-plus scores yet again.

The Big Board takes into consideration past returns, current performance and expected future gains in determining who should be included among the top 50 fantasy football players. Essentially, the Big Board is a cheat sheet designed for an owner who is planning to participate in a draft today. Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football default scoring settings are used as the baseline for the Big Board, which is updated on a regular basis during the season.
DROPPED OUT: Ben Tate, Cle, RB; Michael Floyd, Ari, WR; Greg Olsen, Car, TE; Tony Romo, Dal, QB

Given the image and headline above, you can probably figure out what this pattern is. But let's present it without an identification, just for fun: 9, 31, 20, 8, 24, 22, 13, 1.
Those are the final QB scoring ranks for Ben Roethlisberger this season. Even after a 522-yard, six-touchdown performance for the ages (the eighth-best fantasy QB showing since 1960), it's still rather pedestrian, don't you think?

Mid-way through the third quarter at Heinz Field on Sunday, Martavis Bryant broke open on a quick slant, shedding Colts corner Josh Gordy with ease. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw an absolute dart that hit Bryant in stride, on the hands ... and the rookie bobble the ball, then dropped it.
Immediately, Bryant hung his head in disbelief. Only a single safety stood between Bryant and a 77-yard touchdown, which would have been his third spike of the afternoon.
"I should have kept my eyes on the ball and focused," Bryant would later say. "I'm going to get a lot more work this week on the JUGS machine and get back to work."
Had Martavis snagged the ball, he might still be running. It was the right throw against beaten coverage. And if Bryant would have grabbed it, then Roethlisberger might now own the all-time NFL single-game rec...

It's too easy to score. It's too hard to score.
Let's watch the football and baseball games together, and talk about some fake sports. And if you want to go off the board to life subjects, I won't fight you.
Bring a drink, vote in a poll, tell a joke, root on your guys. See you in a few.
First pitch around 10:15 pm ET.

It isn't every day that fantasy owners are disgusted by an 84-yard reception, but Sammy Watkins is in the business of making the impossible happen. Early in the second quarter of Buffalo's decisive win over the Jets on Sunday, Watkins hauled in a deep dart from Kyle Orton, raced for the end-zone, and ... well, he did not quite arrive at his intended destination.
Watkins decelerated, gave us a premature sky-point celebration, and was caught from behind by Saalim Hakim just short of the goal line. Brutal play by an otherwise brilliant rookie — and Sammy even took a peek over his shoulder after the catch, so it's not like he was unaware of the pursuit.

At the end of September, the 2-2 New England Patriots didn't look like much of a football team. The wins weren't so impressive: one gift job from Matt Cassel, one white-knuckle ride against Oakland. The losses were emasculating: a blowout in Miami, and a 27-point demolition, in front of a national audience, at Kansas City.
Some knee-jerk scribes (I'm raising my hand) wondered if the Bill Belichick Reign was just about over. And some knee-jerk roto writers (I'm raising my hand) wrote the sell ticket on Tom Brady.
What a difference a month can make.
The Patriots haven't missed a step through four breezy October victories, piling up 156 points and a truckload of yards. The latest romp came Sunday against Chicago, a 51-23 beatdown that wasn't as close as the final score suggests. Brady spun as perfect of a game as possible: 30-for-35 passing, 354 yards, five touchdowns, no sacks or interceptions. Two of his incomplete passes came on drops.
