Monday Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 16)

I usually start this column with "another week, another Monday," but that would be inappropriate this time around. Yes, today is actually Saturday, but this Monday isn't just any Monday either – it's a double order of Monday football that is going to determine fantasy champions all over the world! And while we're at it,... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 13)

RotoBallers – another week, another Monday! And a big Monday at that, as many fantasy owners take their final stab at a playoff spot.

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 12)

RotoBallers – another week, another Monday! For all of the bad football that we've seen in the NFL this year, the last few weeks of nationally televised games have actually been pretty good. The last two Monday night games have had total scores over 60 and have featured some of the NFC's best teams in... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 11)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. 2017 hasn't exactly gone to plan for the Atlanta Falcons. I'll save you the details that you already know, but it all dates back to February 5th, when the Falcons ended up on the wrong side of the record books during the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. Entering... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 10)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. Tonight's Monday Night Football matchup pits together two teams going in very different directions. Once 4-2 with early playoff hopes, the Dolphins now find themselves trying to avoid a third consecutive loss in as many weeks, all under the national spotlight in primetime. They'll have to do so without (former)... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 9)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. This season hasn't quite gone as planned for the Green Bay Packers. One of the preseason favorites to reach Super Bowl LII (that's 52), there's been a bit of a change of plans. Ever since lord and savior Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone in Week 6, the... Read More

Fantasy Football Mailbag – Trade Deadline Analysis

It's been a pretty crazy last few days in football land. Despite six teams on a bye week, half of this weekend's twelve games ended within one score, including the possible game of the year between Texans and Seahawks in Seattle. And if Week 8 of football wasn't enough action, the last 48 hours have... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 7)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. Unlike last week, tonight's Monday Night Football matchup pits together two divisional teams on the upswing.

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 6)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. That means more football! This week's Monday Night Football pits the bottom of the AFC South against each other as the 2-3 Colts head to Tennessee to take on the 2-3 Titans. In a division that is very much still up for grabs, both teams are still looking to overcome... Read More

Fantasy Football Mailbag – Bit By The Injury Bug?

There's always the inevitable weeks where most of the major storylines coming out are injury-related. Unfortunately, Week 5 was one of those week's as one of the biggest fantasy stars was lost for the season. But it didn't stop with Odell Beckman. The Giants also lost Brandon Marshall for the year, Rob Gronkowski was surprisingly... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups and Starts/Sits (Week 5)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! Another week, another Monday. But hey, at least you're not Chris Foerster (if you haven't caught up yet, that's the Dolphins offensive line coach who had a video leaked doing cocaine before a team meeting). Tonight's matchup sends the 2-2 Vikings to Chicago to take on the 1-3 Bears, as both teams look... Read More

Fantasy Football Mailbag – Trust Your Big Guns

After a Week 1 where six teams failed to score double digit points and a Week 2 where the same amount of teams failed to even score a touchdown, Week 3 was the breath of fresh air that fans were waiting for in this young season (on the field). Exactly half of the games played finished... Read More

Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis (Week 3)

Happy Monday RotoBallers! While you might be back at work and/or on the grind today, there's always some solace in knowing that Monday Night Football awaits. And if yesterday's Sunday slate was a preview of what's to come tonight, we should be in for a good one. The 1-1 Cowboys travel to the 1-1 Cardinals... Read More

Fantasy Football Mailbag – Buy Low, Sell High

Two weeks into any fantasy season is my favorite time. No, it's not because I'm always 2-0 and vindicated by all of my amazing draft picks – but it's because now is the ideal time to buy low and sell high. Many owners are ready to hit the panic button, and this year's rash of... Read More

Fantasy Football Mailbag – Weathering The Storm

On the field, Week 1 was fairly lackluster – six teams scored in the single digits, and many of the week's marquee games ended up being duds. For fantasy purposes however, Week 1 was action packed and game-changing. The most noteworthy news, of course, is mostly-consensus #1 pick David Johnson headed to the IR, but... Read More

Football is back! After 213 days of free agent signings, training camp reports, beat writer projections, and fantasy drafts, the new NFL season officially gets underway tonight as the Patriots welcome Kansas City to Foxboro.

Tight End VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The 2019 fantasy football season is over. That is not something we like to say considering the empty path we have ahead of us until we reach draft season again in eight months. The good thing about it, though, is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few weeks... Read More


Biggest Surprises of 2019: Running Back

The 2019 NFL season was an interesting year for the running back position. Christian McCaffrey was the overall RB1, but some of the other top players fell below expectations. That led to some interesting final results when the final season standings came around. And while some of those -- Dalvin Cook as the RB3, Leonard... Read More

Introducing the 2020 Rookie Tight End Class

Out of all the skill positions, tight end is the one where rookies have the most issue making an immediate impact. But there's still always some value at every position in every NFL Draft, and the 2020 one is no exception, even if people are very down on this year's crop of tight ends. Let's... Read More


Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019. In 2020, hopefully he's got the one he needs in Kevin Stefanski. Last season, under Kitchens, Mayfield had a coach he could control and manipulate. He did just that... Read More


Wide Receiver VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The one (and only) good thing about fantasy football season ending is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few months and put performances into context to prepare for next season.

The King's Keeper Corner: NFL Postseason Impacts on Player Outlooks

Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out. At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2019: Tight End

2019 was not the record-breaking season for tight ends 2018 was.

Kansas City’s Travis... Read More
