Whether you're a fantasy beginner or don't have as much time to devote to your fantasy team during the week, I'm here for you with the newest edition of Fantasy 101 -- all your fantasy needs in 15 minutes or less. Because that's how long you'll need to digest this column and make your appropriate moves. Through six weeks, picking up free agents has been extremely difficult. You'll grab a player one week and then he gives you nothing for the next two. That is unfortunately how it's going so far in 2012. But keep at it, because the next waiver wire gem could be right around the corner.

Free agents to pick up
Other notes of note
- If I own a clear-cut star WR, and they're playing the Jets defense, I really have to think if I want to play him. Right now Antonio Cromartie is the best CB in the NFL, and he's on another level after shutting down Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne in consecutive weeks. He's ballhawking and almost playing at a Darrelle Revis level.
- Andy Dalton has gone from someone who was a nice matchup-based QB (someone who you would start if they're playing a bad team) to someone you might want to start week-in and week-out. If you have Dalton and another good QB, try to make a trade. Or if you need a QB, Dalton is a great option to deal for.
