New Coaches in New Places - Who Will Succeed?

Some things in the NFL never change. Tom Brady is going to take the Patriots to a division title and a first-round playoff bye. At least one wide receiver will become such a diva he will be traded from his team (maybe two!). And of course, the Raiders will stink as long as they continue... Read More

Anthony Miller - Rookie Recap / Dynasty Outlook

Evaluating a player after one professional season may, for some, be considered a futile effort. Most rookies do not break out or even live up to their full potential in their first season. Saying this it is still good to do so for many reasons. First and foremost, we can see what type of usage... Read More

Gus Edwards - Rookie Recap / Dynasty Outlook

Before the start of the 2018 Baltimore Ravens season the hot name in the backfield was Alex Collins. Halfway through the season, the hot name was Kenneth Dixon. By the end of the season, it was Gus Edwards. Gus the Bus, as he is known, the 6’1 238-pound rookie made his mark in the latter... Read More

AFC West Risers/Fallers - 2018 Season Review

The top of this division was the strongest in the NFL while the bottom of this division saw some of the worst-played football in the NFL. It may remain that way in the near future, be it due to poor coaching or executive leadership or simply lack of talent. The Chiefs and Chargers should control... Read More

It is the first week of February. Super Bowl LIII has just come to an end, which sadly means the NFL season is over.

AFC East Risers/Fallers - 2018 Season Review

Another season, another Patriots romp over the division. Nothing new there but we still want to know who are some of the players we can look to going forward in the fantasy world. The Bills were supposed to have the least-talented roster in the NFL and while this still may be true, because of some... Read More

Tight End Risers and Fallers - 2018 Season Review

Ah, the tight end. The position most people just forget about. Leaving to the last pick of the draft unless you get one of the elite two or three. Is it worth risking your entire draft on a player at a one-off position only to have them ruin your team with a terrible season? On... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2018 - Running Backs

Running backs are the worst position to go bust in fantasy. Most likely, they cost you an early pick and busting on such a high draft pick usually leads to a long and dreadful season for your team. Did you draft Le’Veon Bell at number one or two only to watch him sit at home... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2018 - Quarterback

When it comes to bust candidates there are many ways to look at it. The easiest way is to look at their projected finishing spot compared to where they actually finished. But this is unfair in the case of injuries or other unforeseen circumstances. Was Jimmy Garoppolo a draft day bust? Well yes, but he... Read More

Carson Wentz - Dynasty Dud or Buy-Low?

Coming into last season, Carson Wentz was high on the list of dynasty quarterbacks. His amazing 2017 season solidified his position, even with his ACL injury which cut short what could have been an MVP campaign. Turn to 2018 and we were still high on him and hoping he came back strong from his ACL.... Read More

In Aaron Rodgers We Trust?

As fantasy playoff season comes around, the saying goes, "Start your studs." Another popular phrase: "Play the guys who got you there." Both of these sayings hold true 99% of the time but there are some situations which this does not prove to be the case. One of these cases could be this week with... Read More

Spoiler Alert! Favorable Matchups to Avoid

Lucas. The Replacements. Me, Myself and Irene. Hollywood is full of underdogs who finally had enough and made it known, "Don’t test me!" It seems the script is now taking effect in the 2018 NFL with teams such as Cincinnati, Tampa Bay, Arizona, and yes, even Oakland, that they are not just going to lay... Read More

What Is Kareem Hunt's Dynasty Value?

To start off, I am going to make it clear that this article is about the dynasty value of Kareem Hunt not knowing in any definitive way what the future holds for his NFL career. This is not going to opine on the legal aspects or moral aspects of what transpired with him recently. No... Read More

Worrying About James Conner? Possible Pivot Plays

James Conner is having a great season by any metric you want to use. Not just a great season for a backup running back who unexpectedly inherited a starting role, but a great season even in comparison to the player he has replaced this season in Pittsburgh, Le'Veon Bell. The concern here is not how... Read More

Jordan Reed - Back to Fantasy Relevance?

After all the injuries and off-season surgeries, is Jordan Reed ready to re-emerge as an option for fantasy football owners? Is the same injury to Alex Smith on the same date 33 years later and after the same 301 pass attempts which ended Joe Theismann's career going to give Jordan Reed life once again? If we... Read More

Finding Waiver Wire Gems on Bad Teams

There are a lot of bad teams out there in the NFL in 2018 as you will see in the list below. Some expected, like the Raiders and some not so much, like the Jaguars. Whether bad by design, bad injury luck, or bad coaching (the Raiders fit all three), some players still stand out... Read More

Picking From the Fringe - Waiver Targets for a Playoff Push

With the fantasy football regular season coming down to the wire, there are those players who are established in the playoffs and those who are already out of contention.

Quarterbacks to Own for the Playoff Stretch

Before the season started, I gave readers a list of quarterbacks who could be drafted based on their fantasy playoff matchups. These picks were obviously based on the stats of the defenses from 2017, as games had not yet been played. Now that the season is half over, I decided it was time to go... Read More

Dealing Le'Veon Bell Before the Trade Deadline

First, we were told he would be back before the season. Then we were told it would happen during the bye week. Now we are hearing it will be after the NFL trade deadline, so he doesn’t get traded, and his deadline to report is by Tuesday 11/13 at 4 pm. What are we to... Read More

Golden Tate To Eagles - Fantasy Impact

A Notre Dame player on the Eagles? My grandfather would be rolling over in his grave. That said, Golden Tate on the Eagles makes a lot of sense as they have a need at receiver to help complement Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery. And because apparently, they couldn’t find a running back to trade for.... Read More

Bear of a Decision - What To Do With Jordan Howard

Coming into 2018, Jordan Howard was said to have been working very hard on his game. He was practicing on the Jugs machine after practice and he was going to be a better pass-catcher than in his first seasons in Chicago. Not like he could have gotten worse, but I digress. Many analysts, myself included,... Read More

Carlos Hyde Traded To Jaguars - Instant Reaction

With the news Friday that Carlos Hyde was traded from the Cleveland Browns to the Jacksonville Jaguars, there are two questions which need to be answered. The first question: what does LeBron James think about it? Ok, actually the first question is, what does this mean for the remaining running backs in Cleveland? The second... Read More

Injured RBs - Run Away from Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette?

Some players have the decency to go on injured reserve when injured. Players like Marshawn Lynch and Devonta Freeman come to mind. They know how important knowing their injury status is to fantasy football owners and they really seem to care about our teams. Players like this are a rare breed and if you ask... Read More

Is Andrew Luck an Elite Fantasy QB Again?

It is obvious to see. Andrew Luck does not have his entire arm strength back since his 18-month absence from the NFL. It was on display Week 3 against the Eagles when he was removed from the game on a last-second Hail Mary attempt. Then in Weeks 4 and 5, we see him throw the... Read More

Stop Holding Us Back! Underutilized RBs

Every season there are some players we expect to break out. Some of them don’t for one simple reason - the team doesn’t play them over inferior players. Whether it be due to contract numbers or coach’s preference, teams stick with a player long after it is obvious someone else is better. In years past,... Read More

The Josh Gordon/Tom Brady Connection - Is It A Trap?

What is there to say which has not already been said about Josh Gordon? Well, nothing really. He has all the talent you would want in a wide receiver or any player on your team. He has the size to be physical at 6’3” and 225 lbs but he also has the speed to be... Read More
