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 93 articles so far, you can find them below.

It's here, it's finally here! The 2018 NFL season is upon us and that means so is fantasy football. We all know how important start/sit decisions are in fantasy, and I'm here to help. Unlike other articles that cover just a few players at each position, I am analyzing every player, for every game either... Read More

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

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

Running backs are the rocks of fantasy football teams, but they are not without risk. One of the most volatile positions due to injuries and teams using a committee approach, avoiding a bust at the position has become paramount to drafters. While you can't control your stud running back getting hurt, or getting benched for... Read More

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

Week 3 of the NFL preseason is typically a dress rehearsal for teams and we get the best idea yet of how players will be used. While some NFL teams still chose to rest their starters, many inexplicably didn't. Unfortunately, we also had a major injury with Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee going down for the... Read More

Two weeks ago I brought you my first installment of late-round running backs to target if you choose to go ZeroRB in your drafts this year. With two preseason games in the books, and more information, things have changed in the running back landscape and I am giving my first update. This article will cover... Read More

As teams have now played two exhibition games, things are starting to get more clear. You'll hear a lot of overreaction from other sites, but we're here to tell you what really matters this early in the exhibition season. There are two things that really matter this early in the preseason: injuries and player roles.... Read More

With just two weeks left in preseason, the NFL regular season is right around the corner. That means fantasy drafts are ramping up everywhere. In every draft, I have players that I consider "must-haves," players I will reach a round or two early on to secure them on my roster. Here are five of my... Read More

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

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

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. While the early rounds are chock full of studs and obvious picks, it's the middle and late rounds that will truly make or break your draft. We already looked... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~105 ANALYSIS:  In his sophomore season, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson made quite the leap. He saw 114 targets, had 63 receptions, 941 yards and seven touchdowns on his way to a WR18 finish. Now he is being drafted outside the top-40? Are drafters scared of his off-the-field issues?... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~105 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson is another receiver that was crushed by poor quarterback play a year ago. Through the first four games, it was business as usual as he had 19 catches and six touchdowns. However, then Aaron Rodgers went down and the wheels fell off. Brett Hundley had trouble... Read More
