Week 17 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

The only negative about the late December holiday season is that it means the end of the NFL regular season. Don't get me wrong, the playoffs are great. But there's just no replacing a full NFL Sunday slate. This Sunday is the last chance to enjoy it for nine months, so make it count! The goal of... Read More

Week 16 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

Christmas is right around the corner, but who will be bringing the gifts to your daily fantasy lineups?

Week 10 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

The football gods have made us all feel their wrath this season. If you play in a traditional season-long redraft league, the chances are high you've felt the sting of the injury bug (Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, Julian Edelman, and on and on and on). Hopefully you've sought refuge in the... Read More

Week 7 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

If you played in DFS contests that included Thursday night's Oakland Raiders-Kansas City Chiefs, I sure hope you played Derek Carr (417 yards, three touchdowns) and Amari Cooper (11 receptions, 210 yards, two touchdowns). If not, well ... you're probably going to face an uphill battle. The goal of this weekly column is to help... Read More

Week 6 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

Today is Friday the 13th, but the New York Giants have been living a horror movie since early September. In addition to falling to 0-5, New York lost wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall to season-ending injuries this past weekend. It's safe to say the Giants would take a mulligan on this season if...

Week 5 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

We get so spoiled by the first four weeks of the NFL season, don't we? All 32 teams playing over the course four days each week. It's glorious. Alas, bye weeks are inevitable, and they've finally arrived as planned for the 2017 (Miami and Tampa Bay didn't exactly plan on their Week 1 byes). This... Read More

Week 3 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

Welcome to Week 3, RotoBallers! The goal of this weekly column is to help find the most profitable DFS stacks, while avoiding the duds.

Double Trouble - Week 2 DFS Tournament Stacks

That felt great, didn't it? Perhaps last Sunday's slate of NFL games wasn't the greatest every played, but it still allowed us to sit around and watch football all day.

Week 1 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

Football. Is. Back. And, wouldn't you know, it's just as unpredictable as ever. The Kansas City Chiefs opened the 2017 season with a 42-27 romp over the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

Way Too Early Dynasty Mock Draft Analysis - Rounds 4-6

Dynasty leagues offer a fun twist of fantasy football in which owners retain most, if not all of their players from year to year.

Sophomore Slumps - Third-Year NFL Players Who Will Rebound in 2017

NFL rookies have it easy. OK, well, maybe not easy. But their first-season struggles are typically chalked up to the difficult transition from the college ranks to the pros. There's no such mercy in Year No. 2, when the struggles get labeled as the dreaded sophomore slump. Sophomore slumps extend beyond just the player's on-field... Read More

Sophomore Slumps - Breakout Rookies Who Will Underperform in Year Two

Rookies are the ultimate unknown in the NFL. Teams review hours and hours of game film, analyze enough numbers to make most banks jealous, and scout players at individual workouts, but there's still an unknown quality to rookies. It is difficult to predict how they'll perform as professionals. When they do perform well, general managers and coaches... Read More

Way Too Early Fantasy Football Mock Re-Draft Analysis - Rounds 1-2

So ... how about that Super Bowl, huh? It seems fitting that, after a postseason filled mostly with one-sided snoozers, the football gods would treat us to arguably the most improbable comeback in the history of professional sports. Rather than spend more time trying to figure out what exactly happened the night of Feb. 5... Read More

Early Sleepers for 2017 - Quarterbacks

Everyone seems to have a different definition for what makes a fantasy football "sleeper." For some, it's simply a player they expect to greatly exceed expectations based on their draft position. For others, sleepers are more like unknown commodities - deeper under the radar than mere value picks. For example, Cam Newton and Russell Wilson currently... Read More

Biggest Busts and Disappointments of 2016 - Quarterbacks

What a difference a year can make. Players that are viewed one year as safe bets can be viewed the very next year as shaky propositions. It's the beauty -- or, depending on how you look at it, the curse -- of fantasy football. No position is immune. Every season, there are a handful of... Read More

Biggest Breakouts and Values of 2016 - Quarterbacks

Quarterback might be the most important position on an NFL field, but the truth is it's not the most important position in fantasy football. Why, you ask? Simple, the depth at quarterback is impressive, making it unnecessary -- and unwise -- to reach early for a quarterback. Sure, players like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and... Read More

Conference Championship Round - Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

This is the end, my friends. What began as a marathon race with 32 teams has left just four standing -- the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers.

Divisional Round - Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks

Last season, all four road teams won in wild-card weekend for the first time in NFL history. This season, the home teams struck back, winning all four games in rather unexciting fashion -- every game was decided by at least 13 points. Expect a much more exciting and competitive, not to mention star-studded, divisional round.... Read More

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. This concept is easy to understand: in both Daily Fantasy and re-draft/fantasy leagues, ROI would come down to how many points a player returns relative to his salary, or the price you paid (given his ADP on...

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

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

Kansas City’s Travis... Read More

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day.
