Lamar Miller (RB, MIA) - Week 4 Lineup Busts

Oh hey look, it's my RB2! People were expecting an offensive breakout in South Florida this season, but it looks like the offense is just broken. With losses to the Bills (who are surprisingly good) and the Jaguars (unsurprisingly not good), the Dolphins have been a disappointment this season. Miller came in to this season... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds / Two-QB Leagues as 2nd QB CURRENT ADP: 163 STD, 162 PPR ANALYSIS: If you want to sell yourself on Winston, all you have to do is look at his 2013 game against Pittsburgh.

Jameis Winston: 2015 NFL Rookie Fantasy Analysis

Last year's rookie QB class was slightly underwhelming. No one provided an Andrew Luck, or even Robert Griffin III from 2012  season, and the 2015 class doesn't look much better. While Winston was anointed the #1 pick in 2015 as early as September 2013, his 2014 season was disappointing. His Florida State team was labeled as a fraudulent 13-0,... Read More
