About Chris Mangano - RotoBaller

I'm a Southern California sports fan - Lakers, Ducks, Angels - and the Washington Redskins (long story) who used to record Barry Sanders games on VHS tapes. I developed a passion for fantasy football and decided to start blogging/writing about my findings. I started my own personal training business in 2011. When not spending hours researching for fantasy football I enjoy playing chess and visiting Disneyland with my wife.

Chris Mangano - RotoBaller has written 95 articles so far, you can find them below.

The Method to the Matchups Madness - An In-Depth Look

Last year was my first year writing the matchups column for RotoBaller, and let me tell you it was a bear. Covering 12-14 games every week, and having to write about every single relevant player from each team is a time-consuming task no one should have to embark on. So when I signed up to... Read More

PPR Targets - Undervalued Tight Ends

Drafting tight ends in fantasy is like eating your vegetables at dinner. You know you should, but you really don't want to. Only three tight ends in PPR leagues, Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce, and Zach Ertz averaged over 12 points per game in 2017. On a points-per-game basis, the TE4 (Evan Engram) and TE20 (Vernon Davis)... Read More

Three Overvalued Running Backs - Potential ADP Busts

Running backs are the rocks of fantasy football teams, but they are not without risk.

Three Overvalued Quarterbacks - Potential ADP Busts

Quarterback is one of the most predictable and deepest positions in fantasy, so it is not a spot where you want to take risks. Sure, you could draft Aaron Rodgers early, or you could wait and get Philip Rivers really late. There are many ways to play the quarterback position, and the only thing that... Read More

George Kittle (TE, SF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~105 CURRENT ADP: ~115 ANALYSIS: ADP:  With Evan Engram having such a good rookie season, another rookie tight end, George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers, kind of got forgotten. However, Kittle himself had quite a first year, with 43 catches for 515 yards and two touchdowns. He did this while playing less than 60% of the team’s snaps... Read More

Jared Cook (TE, OAK) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: ADP:  Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook had a bit of a breakout season in 2017, with 54 catches and 688 yards on his way to a TE12 finish. Playing his first year for the Oakland Raiders, he was targeted 86 times, second-most of his career. Michael Crabtree was cut in... Read More

Charles Clay (TE, BUF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay was off to a good start in 2017 before suffering an injury in Week 5. In his first four healthy games, he had 18 receptions, 227 yards, and two touchdowns. That would be a 72/908/8 pace over a full 16 game season. The Bills... Read More

As the NFL season approaches, and leagues begin to host their fantasy drafts, we have a pretty good idea of where most players will be drafted.

Biggest Busts of 2019: Tight End

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

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.

If they put up a season-long dud, though, you'll... Read More
