Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019. In 2020, hopefully he's got the one he needs in Kevin Stefanski. Last season, under Kitchens, Mayfield had a coach he could control and manipulate. He did just that... Read More

Monday Night Fantasy Football Starts/Sits - Week 16

In a divisional game, this one is a great finale for Monday Night Football. Not just for real football, but especially for fantasy. There are a ton of stars in this game.

Monday Night Fantasy Football Starts/Sits - Week 15

The Saints are coming off a hard-fought loss to the 49ers. It was an amazing game that featured no defense whatsoever. On the other hand, the Colts' best player in their loss was second-year linebacker Darius Leonard. This game should be different. Not only is the New Orleans defense going to show up, this means the... Read More

Week 15 Warning Signs: Matt Ryan, Carson Wentz, Julio Jones

You made the playoffs. Awesome. Now you have even won your first game. That is even better. But now what?

Monday Night Fantasy Football Starts/Sits - Week 14

Finally, we had a good fantasy matchup last week. And now, as punishment, we get this. The Eagles against the Giants is a good rivalry game. But for fantasy? Not so much. Even key players Saquon Barkley and Carson Wentz have been severely disappointing in 2019. The game is not going to be something to... Read More

Fantasy Playoffs Warning Signs: Wide Receivers

We all know a good wide receiver is important. Most leagues are PPR and more receivers are played than other positions. But the key is finding those wide receivers with favorable matchups. Just like with other positions, it is difficult to know at draft time which defenses will be good or bad by the time... Read More

Monday Night Fantasy Football Starts/Sits - Week 13

After two weeks of good-looking games, which turned out to be pumpkins, will we finally get the proper MNF matchups we expect? The 8-3 Vikings are coming off a bye and going into Seattle to play the 9-2 Seahawks. This is a game rife with playoff implications, both in reality and fantasy. Even Adam Thielen ruled... Read More

Dynasty Quarterbacks: 2020 Rookie Class Preview

With the injury suffered by Tua Tagovailoa in Alabama's recent game against Mississippi, it feels like a good time to evaluate the top tier of college quarterbacks who are preparing to enter the NFL. While one or two of these players may not declare, it's more likely the injury to Tua nudges more of them --... Read More

Week 12 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Last week's entree of fantasy choices was supposed to be a filet mignon which turned into a Salisbury Steak. Let’s hope this week doesn’t provide us with the same disappointment. With Baltimore traveling across the country to face the struggling Los Angeles Rams, it looks like another good week for the Lamar Jackson MVP campaign.... Read More

Warning Signs Playoff Primer - Quarterbacks

The fantasy trade deadline has passed, all teams should be solidified ready for the playoffs. Therefore, instead of looking at players who crashed and burned, thank you Brian Hill, it is time to look towards players we will be starting in those playoff matchups. Of course, this means looking at the opponents they face in... Read More

Week 11 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Welcome back to Mexico City. Last season, the Chiefs were supposed to take on the Rams in this game before field conditions moved the game to Los Angeles.

Darius Slayton: A Giant Success

Is he Odell Beckham Jr.? No. But at 6’1" and 190 pounds, Darius Slayton has taken over as the outside receiver in New York. But do we really know anything else about the rookie out of Auburn that would lead us to believe he can step up into a primary role on the Giants offense?... Read More

Warning Signs: Saquon Barkley, David Johnson, Aaron Rodgers

Another week, another bout of crazy results. While survivor pools came to a screeching halt with the Saints and Colts losing, there were also some worrying situations that crept up for fantasy teams. This week brings many questions. What should we do with the Atlanta run game? The answer there is nothing. How do we... Read More

Week 10 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

We got a good one on Monday night folks. Both for the NFC West division and, more importantly, for fantasy. Two of the top teams in the NFL matchup at Levi's Stadium. We can finally find out if the 49ers are for real, or if they were just beating up on bad teams all season.... Read More

Warning Signs: Sam Darnold, Le'Veon Bell, Robby Anderson

This week, instead of looking at players from different teams, we are going to look at one team. Or at least a group of players considered a team according to their uniform. The New York Jets are terrible. The blame does not fall entirely on the players. Adam Gase is a bad coach, and he... Read More

Week 9 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Finally a good matchup on Monday night! The Giants may not be "good" but they at least have fantasy-relevant players. The Cowboys, as well as being the better team, also have more fantasy potential. Both of these teams have running backs who are among the best in the NFL. And both have quarterbacks who can... Read More

Welcome Back, Matthew Stafford

The NFC North could be the best division in the league. Not only in terms of overall competitiveness, but in how terrifying each defense has been. The Bears, Packers and of course the Vikings have legit pass defenses in 2019. The best of the bunch is the Vikings, who currently rank sixth in team defense.... Read More

Warning Signs: Le'Veon Bell, Courtland Sutton, George Kittle

What have we learned this season in fantasy football? Well. Quite a bit. With the Browns, we have learned that elite parts do not make a great machine. When it comes to the 49ers, we have learned the only way to use a run game to bleed games is when you have the defense to... Read More

Week 8 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Unfortunately, it is back to another terrible Monday night game. Not only do we need to deal with Booger McFarland and his commentary, but we need to do so while watching the Dolphins. Coming off a bye week, the Steelers should come out refreshed at home. James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster should be ready to... Read More

Mid-Season Awards: MVP's and LVP's

When it comes to awards, everything is subjective. Some people just go with the best player at each position. That is fine in real football but not in fantasy football. Christian McCaffrey has had the best season as a running back, but as the first or second pick in drafts, he needed to do so... Read More

Warning Signs: Zach Ertz, David Johnson, Mitch Trubisky

Week 7 brought some new warnings our way. The Bears stink, or maybe just Mitch Trubisky. Todd Gurley still can’t get it going despite a dominant team performance. Finally, as has become a regular routine at this point, Will Fuller has another hamstring injury. So, what do we really need to pay attention to going... Read More

Week 7 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

Even if this doesn’t turn out to be great MNF game, at least it's a divisional game with some importance. This is what Jets fans need to tell themselves heading into their second Monday Night Football game of the season.

Is Stefon Diggs Really Back?

Weeks 1-5: 4.6 targets, 3.2 receptions, 50.6 yards per game, one touchdown. Week 6: 11 targets, eight receptions, 167 yards, three touchdowns. All of these numbers show a marked improvement on the season averages of Stefon Diggs in Minnesota. But, do they tell the whole story? Do they really signify that Diggs should be considered...

Warning Signs: Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Jared Goff

This is going to be a special edition of Warning Signs. Usually, we take a look at players from different teams who have disappointed thus far. This week, I am going to focus on a single team full of players to worry about. It is not good to have a team of big stars where... Read More

Week 6 Start/Sit: Monday Night Football Matchups Analysis

This game is a matchup of the two top teams in the NFC North, by the standings at least. The key to this game will, of course be the offenses. Both the Lions and Packers come into this game boasting offenses which rank in the top half of the NFL and this game should be... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins: Is Nuk Still Atomic for Fantasy?

We have seen from DeAndre Hopkins an ability to be elite no matter who the quarterback is. This has been even more so the case with Deshaun Watson behind center in recent seasons. So, what has changed this year? Well. Nothing actually. While we are disappointed in the play of Hopkins this season, we really... Read More

Warning Signs: Stefon Diggs, Le'Veon Bell, Baker Mayfield

Another week, another surprising loss. At least this one did not take place on American soil. The Raiders took down the Bears in London, proving no one really knows what is going to happen any given week in the NFL. It also looks like there really is no dominant team in the NFC. This works for... Read More

Wide Receiver VOS (Values Over Starter): 2019 Season In Context

The one (and only) good thing about fantasy football season ending is that we have plenty of time to analyze what happened during the past few months and put performances into context to prepare for next season.

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...

At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More


Goodbye Runners, Hello Pass-Catching RBs: 2019 Season Trends

It made sense back then (and it still does now,... Read More

Kansas City’s Travis... Read More

The 2019 fantasy season is over. We are all thinking about what to do come 2020 draft day. So let me ask you something. What if I offer you the chance of drafting a quarterback who is a lock to finish the season with 270 fantasy points? Would you take him and make him your... 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.
