About Evan - RotoBaller

I grew up in New Jersey, just 30 minutes outside Philadelphia. Everyone in my neighborhood followed the Eagles with a passion. My fandom has not swayed over the last few years, but I found a passion for fantasy football that comes close to my love for the Birds. I've made some awesome picks throughout my years, like grabbing Arian Foster when he broke out and picking up Kurt Warner off free agency. However I've also made some horrible moves, such as grabbing Darren McFadden in every fantasy league I could 2 years ago. That's the joy of fantasy football though, you never know what can happen.

Evan - RotoBaller has written 78 articles so far, you can find them below.

Jermaine Kearse (WR, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In Deep Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: We are digging very deep now. Jermaine Kearse has always been an intriguing player since entering the league due to his red zone skills, but Seattle has never been a high volume team, making his value nearly nil. However, Russell Wilson just... Read More

Eddie Royal (WR, CHI) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 57% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Without Kevin White this week, Eddie Royal becomes the clear #3 option in the Bears passing attack (he may already have been) behind Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett. In a game where points are likely to be plenty, I’m willing to bet on Royal... Read More

Brandon Coleman (WR, NO) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Stash in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: I’m more-so buying Coleman for his situation rather than his hype as a player. Coleman went undrafted this past year, but was scooped up by one of the most intriguing passing offenses in the NFL, the Saints. They then shippedJimmy Graham and Kenny Stills out of... Read More

Brian Quick (WR, STL) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Stash in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Quick has an awful matchup this week against Richard Sherman, so he’ definitely not someone you want in your starting lineup for Week 1. However, there’s not many more receivers with his type of upside laying on the waiver wire. While his schedule is tough... Read More

Marvin Jones (WR, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 41% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Marvin Jones missed all of last year with injuries, but offseason reports have been promising, and he was able to expectedly beat out Mohamed Sanu this preseason for the #2 role on the outside. Jones absolutely flourished with the Bengals in his sophomore season, scoring... Read More

Stevie Johnson (WR, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 42% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Ladarius Green may miss this week with a concussion. That leaves Malcom Floyd, Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson as the only legitimate weapons for Rivers on the outside. While they don’t have an ideal matchup against the Lions very underrated secondary, I’m willing to... Read More

Greg Olsen (TE, CAR) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 4-5 Current ADP: 46 STD, 55 PPR ANALYSIS: Greg Olsen becomes the likely top option for Carolina this year as a result of Kelvin Benjamin going down with an ACL injury. Olsen has improved in each of the past three seasons with the Panterhs. He saw 122 targets last year, and that... Read More

Devin Funchess (WR, CAR) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 9-10 Current ADP: 121 STD, 104 PPR ANALYSIS: With Kelvin Benjamin injured, Devin Funchess is going to be one of the focal points of Carolina's offense. Funchess struggled with drops throughout college, but he is a big target with decent speedfor his size. The rookie will be immediately thrown into a role... Read More

The Effect Jordy Nelson's Injury Has on Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, and the Rest of Green Bay

Davante Adams - Stock Up Adams is by far the biggest beneficiary of the Nelson injury. After coming out of Fresno State in the epic receiver class of 2014 and spending his rookie year eased into the #2 WR role, Davante Adams will finally get his opportunity to contribute as a starting receiver for Green...

How Bill Musgrave's History Bodes Well for Latavius Murray

Latavius Murray is a popular mid round draft pick for many fantasy owners due to his tantalizing physical attributes and a huge game on national television against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, his main risks are his lack of usage last year and inexperience. If the only thing stopping you from pulling the trigger on... Read More

Panthers Passing Game Stock Post-Kelvin Benjamin Injury

Devin Funchess - Stock Up Without Benjamin, Devin Funchess is now going to be forced to be one of the focal points of the offense for Carolina.  Funchess is a massive target for Cam Newton, like Benjamin, at 6’4 230 lbs.  His 40 time left a lot to be desired at the combine, but improved...

Duke Johnson (RB, CLE) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Late Rounds as RB4 Current ADP: 149 STD, 99 PPR ANALYSIS: Duke Johnson is great value as a late-round flier who could force a 50/50 carry split in Cleveland early on.  Terrance West was uninspiring as a rookie, and the coaching staff appears to have already moved on, leaving Johnson as the ideal complement to Isaiah...

Jay Ajayi (RB, MIA) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Late Rounds RB5 Current ADP: 170 STD, 148 PPR ANALYSIS: If Jay Ajayi were healthy, he could have been picked in the early second round of the 2015 draft. Scouts and GMs loved his combination of size and speed, along with his versatility. Ajayi has the opportunity to excel in an above-average offense on... Read More

Ryan Mathews (RB, PHI) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 9-10 as RB4 Current ADP: 108 STD, 103 PPR ANALYSIS: Ryan Mathews is probably the best handcuff in all of fantasy football this year, given how Chip Kelly uses his running backs. DeMarco Murray will handle most of the work, while Darren Sproles should handle a majority of third down and two-minute... Read More

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 5-6 as RB2 Current ADP: 74 STD, 56, PPR ANALYSIS: Giovani Bernard lost his starting job to Jeremy Hill quicker than many had imagined, but for good reason.  Hill was an absolute force down the stretch, and while Bernard’s season totals look strong, he really struggled to pick up consistent yards. Bernard...

Shane Vereen (RB, NYG) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 6-8 as RB3 Current ADP: 106 STD, 68 PPR ANALYSIS: While Rashad Jennings has decent value, his age and injury history are concerns. Shane Vereen, his backfield partner, on the other hand, should provide solid value of his own as he racks up receptions. Vereen is strong and agile enough to get open... Read More

Zach Ertz (TE, PHI) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in 6th or 7th Round as TE1 CURRENT ADP: 97 STD, 85 PPR ANALYSIS: Zach Ertz was one of many tight ends who failed to break out in 2014, partially as a result of a lack of playing time. Ertz is a huge target, listed at 6’5 and 250 pounds, and possesses above-average speed and athleticism. He... Read More

Running Back DeMarco Murray's 2015 Fantasy Outlook

I think DeMarco Murray took a long nap after the season.  436 carries and 61 catches (including postseason) takes a huge toll on the body.  That’s an average of 27.6 touches per game, and that’s not including all of his blocking assignments and routes run without a catch.  To put it in perspective, Murray totaled...

Tight End Zach Ertz, the Post-Hype Sleeper of 2015

2014 was a rough year for breakout tight ends.  Zach Ertz, Jordan Cameron, Charles Clay, Tyler Eifert, Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Kyle Rudolph, Dennis Pitta, Ladarius Green and more failed to reach their preseason expectations, whether it was due to poor play, injury, or a lack of talent around them. Ertz himself is an interesting... Read More

What To Expect from Miami's Jarvis Landry in 2015

2014 exceeded expectations for Landry by almost all accounts, but it also left a lot to be desired for his future outlook. At 5’11 and 200 pounds, Landry isn’t much of a downfield threat with a forty time in the 4.7 range and his small body frame, but he made up for his body limitations... Read More

C.J. Anderson's Draft Value in 2015: Why He's Your Guy in Denver

Montee Ball was a borderline 1st round pick in almost every draft last year. To the dismay of hundreds of thousands of fantasy owners, he stunk and got injured halfway through the year.  His backups (Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson and most importantly C.J. Anderson) outperformed him in almost every statistical category.  Anderson became one of... Read More
