About Kirk Minihane

Kirk Minihane thinks "Slap Shot" is -- without argument -- the best sports movie ever made and is also convinced the 1985-86 Celtics would have finished with a record of 78-4 if they had cared about the regular season. He has been a columnist at WEEI.com since 2009 and is now part of The Dennis & Callahan Show.

Pretty self-explanatory, just one rule before we get started.

Give me some names. Sorry? I’m in the finals. I need to win. And I don’t want to hear about Matt Forte and Jay Cutler. Stop living off those guys. No problem. I’ve got a lock for 100 yards and a TD Sunday.

Probably too late to mention that I did like Pierre Thomas as a start this week.

Maybe my timing was a little off... Kirk,

Here is the heavily anticipated sequel to last weeks ranking of the top 16 keepers. This may be the single finest Part 2 ever authored that did not include the word “Boogaloo.” Here we go with 17-36 (once again, age is a key factor). 17. Calvin Johnson (WR, Lions)

Couple of emails have floated in over the last week or two regarding keepers. I’m frankly not a fan of the keeper format, I prefer to address a fresh group of faces on the first day of mini-camp.

Five quick thoughts from Thursday night…

One thing I’ve wanted to do since the column started was to get some different voices from the Fantasy Community in here. This week I managed to land an interview with a true Fantasy Legend, the great Ricardo Montalban.
Kirk Minihane

How about that Chiefs offense on Sunday, huh?
Kirk Minihane

Is there a better play in fantasy football this week than the New York Jets defense?
Kirk Minihane
10/17/2008 - 10:18am
I know we’re not quite at the mid-point of the season, but I figured now is as good a time as any to take a look at the Patriots from a fantasy perspective.

SAN DIEGO—If the Patriots were able to get out of San Diego with a win on Sunday night a more than reasonable argument could be made that New England was still the class of the AFC. With a 4-1 record and an easy schedule, fans could start dreaming of a one seed and maybe, just maybe, start looking at hotel prices in Tampa.

If you own Kyle Orton and Peyton Manning you are definitely thinking about starting Orton this week.

SAN FRANCISCO - Maybe all Patriots fans should give a quick thanks for the Bobby Grier Era.

We are four weeks into the NFL season, so I’m going to attempt something that, to my knowledge, has never been done before in any format. It’s a huge risk, but that’s how we experiment over here. I’m sort of the Kinsey of WEEI.com (minus the sadomasochism). What I’m going to do is hand a couple of (wait for it) Quarter-Season Awards.

OK, two weeks in and some things are not so surprising. The NFL’s leading rusher? Adrian Peterson. Terrell Owens is tied for the league lead with three TD catches.

I know the company line in fantasy sports is never panic after Week 1. If there is ever a season to challenge that rule, however, it is this one. The loss of Tom Brady (and a host of other stars struggling) and the explosive effort of the rookies has to give even the most seasoned fantasy owner pause.

When I was writing hockey cards for the Upper Deck Company (Full disclosure: Although I was the “hockey editor” at UD for over a year, my knowledge of the sport is, at best, limited. I know a ton of facts, such as ...

Two quick thoughts before we get into the rankings.

Though I can't shake the image of him sitting on the sideline in the AFC Title Game, looking remarkably like Han Solo at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back, it would be crazy to suggest that LaDainian Tomlinson belongs anywhere but at the top of the list of running backs for the 2008 season.
