Stop That Hype Train! Michael Gallup

The loss of Dez Bryant to a salary disagreement and Jason Witten to ESPN leaves a huge hole in the Dallas Cowboys receiving ranks.

Stop That Hype Train! Trey Burton

Is Trey Burton going to be the top tight end option on the Chicago Bears in 2018? Yes. Is he the best TE on the roster? Maybe. These are not high thresholds to leap over at this point in time, however. Mitchell Trubisky may have a breakout season like Jared Goff last season, which would... Read More

C.J. Anderson (RB, CAR) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~105 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: Looking at veterans, you need to look at the opportunity to get the value needed to make them worthwhile as a draft target.

Tyrod Taylor - 2018 Fantasy Football Sleeper

We continue our preseason fantasy football sleeper series with a look at Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

The definition of the... Read More

Stop That Hype Train! Cameron Meredith

There are many reasons to be excited for the prospects of Cameron Meredith coming into the 2018 season. He is on an offense in New Orleans headed by the most accurate passer of all time.

Let The Kids Play - A Case For Rookie RBs Over Veterans In Redraft

Andy Dalton (QB, CIN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~175 ANALYSIS: Currently not even being considered in more shallow leagues, Andy Dalton still has a number of years left with the Bengals while quarterbacks like Eli Manning are still being drafted, Dalton is not. With A.J. Green still a top-five receiver in the game and rising star Joe Mixon in the backfield, Dalton should be greatly... Read More

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, ARI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~30 CURRENT ADP: ~35 ANALYSIS: Yes, this is probably the last season of his Hall of Fame career and yes, he is 35 years old. However, he also has the best hands of anyone in the league since Jerry Rice. He also has had over 100 receptions each of the past two seasons. Since... Read More

Stop That Hype Train! Rashaad Penny

With the 27th pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Rashaad Penny, running back, San Diego St. Along with this pick came the hype of being a first-round running back in a pass-heavy league.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers – Jo Adell

The most coveted type of player in fantasy baseball is the batter who can hit home runs, steal bases and hit for contact.

Additionally, batting average has declined because hitters are striking out more often, as... Read More


ADP Cost Analysis - Gleyber Torres vs. Corey Seager

Fantasy baseball players acquire draft position through osmosis. The more drafts that take place, the larger sample we gain of how owners of all experience levels feel about someone.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers - Adrian Houser
