They say that time flies when you're having fun. Five weeks already have gone by in the fantasy football season, and though it may be fun, fantasy football can be very challenging. Challenges come in many forms in fantasy football. You have injuries, bad matchups, bye weeks and you also have to expect the unexpected.
The 2009 NFL season is already a quarter of the way finished, and I am wishing I could go back in time somehow to grab Steve Smith, of the New York Giants, off the waiver wire. I know I mentioned him awhile back as one of the Giants' receivers who could break out, but that was speculation. Now it's a fact: Steve Smith is a must start in fantasy football.
There isn't much more advice I can give to fantasy baseball players now that the playoffs are less than a week away.
OK, we're pretty much halfway through the MLB season and the All-Star Game in St. Louis is coming up next week.
Summer is officially here, and that means baseball is at the forefront of the fantasy sports community right now.

The final game of the NBA season has been played, and the Los Angeles Lakers have been crowned champions.
In this week's installment, I would like to talk about the Atlanta Braves call-up of pitching phenom Tommy Hanson, a Yahoo! Fantasy Football mock draft I participated in and who is tearing up the waiver wire in fantasy baseball this week.
If you're looking to get a fresh start with a new fantasy baseball team, you're in luck.
Before I get to fantasy baseball this week, I'd like to express my gratitude to the folks at the Craig Daily Press.
I've always found making a list of the top players frustrating in one way or another. There's always a factor that can be thrown in that will change things, or I will have a bias toward a couple of players I happen to like.
A list of acquisitions for your baseball lineup
So, some of your top fantasy baseball picks are not cranking out the numbers you expected. No need to fret.
I know I told you last week that I would be going over some fantasy baseball, and I will, just as soon as I give some props to my fantasy basketball team, The Regulators.
This week, I am going to take a look at some great late round draft picks to round out your infield and outfield positions.
The Major League Baseball season is just about upon us once again.
This week I'm going all out, and I'm going to list as many players as I possibly can that I think will help you secure a playoff spot in your fantasy basketball league and, more importantly, help your team win in the playoffs.
In the last days before the Yahoo Fantasy Basketball trade deadline, I pulled the trigger on a deal that was fit for a king. King James, that is.
This is the time of season when fantasy players are evaluating their rosters, records and competition to see whether they are going to be making the playoffs, which start in late March and run through the last game of the NBA regular season in mid-April.
Last Friday was supposed to be the first day you could draft your 2009 Yahoo Fantasy Baseball teams.
Let me start off this week by saying there is not much going on in the fantasy basketball world.
It's never too early to start thinking about fantasy baseball. Being the fantasy addict that I am, I'm already planning my strategy for this year's drafts, which officially begin in mid-February.
This week, I would like to address an issue that has been on my mind since the fantasy basketball season started. Why doesn't the NBA count dunks as an official statistic?
The Yahoo rankings are getting a little shake-up this week, as six of the top 10 players are lesser-known commodities to most fans. Players like Jeff Green, Paul Millsap, David Lee and Mehmet Okur all are making a name for themselves this year.
In most fantasy football leagues, this is championship week - the final game of the year to prove who is the best for the next nine months.
Some players you might not have considered in your fantasy basketball draft or passed up on the waiver wire are starting to make some noise in the association. There are also a few injured players floating around on the waiver wire who are sure to be a valuable commodity in December when they make their returns to action.
We're halfway through the NFL season, and it's time to take a look at what moves have paid off for my top fantasy football teams, and a few players to claim off the waiver wire for Week 11.
The NBA's regular season is only three weeks away and fantasy basketball drafts have been underway since the beginning of this month. The top 5 picks in most drafts have been Chris Paul, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudemire and Elton Brand.
With some fantasy football leagues preparing for upcoming drafts, I believe now would be a good time to take a look at some players that will be worth picking up come draft day.
