BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: What year is it? This is a name that makes me question that whole bizarro NFL thing. Dallas Cowboys wider receiver Tavon Austin is the ultimate hype train that never really panned out. Marred by injuries and sporadic usage, Austin was always disappointing... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw the ball 60 times in Sunday's shootout with the Chiefs. SIXTY passes. Whenever your starting quarterback is slinging the ball around like that, you better be getting some looks. James Washington did get five targets, one of which was... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills running back Chris Ivory is more of a waiver wire find as a result of an injury rather than performance. Bills starter LeSean McCoy injured his ribs on Sunday with the extent of the injury remaining unclear. Should McCoy miss any time, longtime... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick is the leading MVP candidate. There have been two ties in two weeks. Josh Gordon is a Patriot. James Conner has more fantasy points than both Odell Beckham and Aaron Rodgers. And, although not really fantasy related, the Bills are so bad that Vontae Davis retired from football at halftime. No, this isn't... Read More

Insane blowouts can be fun when you're not a fan of either team, but sometimes it reaches a point where you just feel bad. That's how it felt watching the Ravens obliterate the poor, poor Buffalo Bills 47-3. Beyond the real-life ramifications of things like "How on Earth did they start Nathan Peterman?" and "Josh... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Baltimore Ravens running back Javorius Allen is a last resort dart throw in deeper leagues. We are not thrilled about putting him on this list. We have  never been interested in players who have been given multiple opportunities at fantasy relevance only to... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor is a top add of the week regardless of format. Taylor always got the short end of the stick in Buffalo from both a real-life perspective as well as fantasy. Yet he puts up solid production off the... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Coming in at 18% owned, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn just barely makes the cut this week. Ginn hauled in five receptions with a score on six targets, finishing with 20 fantasy points on the day. He was certainly usable at... Read More

As is tradition, Week 1 provided the usual head-scratching performances we've grown accustomed to start the year. Matthew Stafford looked discombobulated, the Amari Cooper rebound year did not get off to a good start, and LeSean McCoy looks hopeless in Buffalo. All these disappointments aside, we did end up with some positive takeaways. Here you'll find your... Read More

Assuming your league's championship round concludes in Week 16, now is not the time to be looking for "depth." Instead, this last week of the waiver wire is to find an emergency starter, typically for an injury replacement. Whether you lost Antonio Brown or are crossing your fingers waiting on Keenan Allen, anyone you add... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers For Week 15

Not to rehash last week's intro, but being in the fantasy playoffs likely means your key starters are locked in. It's always wise to stay on top of the waiver wire, however, as you never know who can provide last minute depth. It being the semi-finals for most, this very well may be your final chance to... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers For Week 14

On to the fantasy playoffs we go! Well, hopefully for you at least. Even if you are indeed eliminated, don't hesitate to keep on setting a full lineup anyway. Fantasy is supposed to be fun and we only get a finite amount of weeks to play it. You might as well make it last. Enjoy the... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers For Week 13

Most fantasy leagues are now heading into the final week of the regular season. Barring significant injuries, this is likely the last week you'll be able to find anyone worth using come playoff time. That's not to say there won't be more opportunities to round out your bench, but now is the time for that last... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers For Week 12

With the fantasy trade deadline looming, or in some leagues already passed, the waiver wire will soon be your only place to scoop up last minute fantasy pieces. Throw in the conclusion of bye weeks and most owners have their rosters set in stone. That being said, you should always be looking to round out your bench with... Read More

We have officially entered the home stretch of the fantasy regular season. As such, it is slim pickings on the waiver fire. Finding deep names for PPR leagues is no easy task in general, and it only gets harder and hard the later we get. Nevertheless, it's not like there's no one left at all.... Read More

Hopefully most of you sticking with this weekly piece are still alive in your fantasy standings. Even if you aren't you should be maintaining a competitive roster. Phoning it in only upsets competitive balance and besides, fantasy is supposed to be fun to play. No one likes losing, but we only get 13 guaranteed weeks... Read More

We have somehow managed to escape Week 7 without any significant injuries to top fantasy contributors. Yes, Carson Palmer and Jay Cutler were knocked out, but speaking purely from a fantasy perspective, this was as tame of a week as we could hope for. With that in mind, you'll notice some more repeat names than usual this week.... Read More

Although it doesn't quite factor into a column about PPR sleepers, we should take a moment to acknowledge the injury to Aaron Rodgers. A broken collarbone is likely to end his season. For the record, that's way more disappointing for real life NFL football than it is for fantasy. Seeing a superstar go down with... Read More

Kudos to anyone who still has anything that even remotely resembles a healthy, usable lineup through five weeks. This is one of the most sporadic, soul-crushing fantasy football seasons I've ever been a part of, and I'm sure most long-time veterans would agree. It's ugly out there. Just need to keep on truckin' through the mud.... Read More

Sunday's Week 4 slate was absolutely brutal for fantasy owners. It's obviously never fun to see any player in the NFL go down with a serious injury, but fantasy football ends up making the heartbreak that much worse. Not only that, but there have been way too many head-scratching moments this year, and Week 4 was no... Read More

Here's hoping that your fantasy squads are not only healthy but competitive after three weeks. Even if they aren't, there's plenty of time to turn things around. For those of you in deeper PPR leagues, consider the names you're about to see listed here. Each player listed is owned in less than 20% of Yahoo... Read More

The running back by committee is the most dreaded situation in all of fantasy football. Having too many cooks in the kitchen, the nail in the coffin, the kiss of death, the ol' "stick a fork in it," whatever cliche you prefer. A RBBC can make a very talented running back irrelevant for fantasy purposes.... Read More

Week 2 of the NFL season was a physical therapist's dream. Or nightmare, I guess. Either way, the amount of players that were either legitimately injured or had a scare was hard to watch. Throw in some shocking duds from superstars like Ezekiel Elliott and Brandin Cooks, and Sunday's slate had more face-palms than anticipated.... Read More

Don't panic! It's only been one week, don't freak out about your lineups just yet. Unless you're one of the unfortunate folks who lost David Johnson or Allen Robinson, there is obviously a ton of time for your studs to perform. Having said that, it's always wise to keep your eye on some early pickups... Read More

You hear it every year: wait, wait, wait, and wait some more on quarterback. It's arguably the most common fantasy strategy out there these days. The premise is simple; waiting on your QB1 allows you to soak up all of the stronger running backs and wide receivers, ending up with a late round passer who... Read More

Not exactly a groundbreaking statement here, but the Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the most potent offenses in the NFL. We’ve all heard about the trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell, but there are some additional moving parts to look into heading into the 2017 season. If anything, the offense as a... Read More

My original plan for this intro was going to be a game of "which of these things is not like the other." Then I quickly realized the answer would have been obvious considering the name Kenny Britt is in the title of the article. So let's try something else. Let's see if you can pick... Read More

Sleepers and busts, sleepers and busts. Go ahead and open Google and just type in either of those words without mentioning anything about football. One of the first few results will be directly related to fantasy. That's because that's what every owner obsesses over most. Who can I get as a steal? Who do I... Read More

Every fantasy owner and their grandmother has an opinion on who's a "sleeper." It's basically become more of a buzzword than an actual guideline at this point. Part of the problem with that is that everyone uses a different definition of what a "sleeper" even is. Is it someone you're willing to reach for? Someone you... Read More

My dreams of playing in a mega-high stakes (jelly beans, of course) fantasy league were crushed when I didn't win the Powerball jackpot. My guess is you aren't that one lucky soul who won either so here you are slumming it with the rest of us. That's ok though, there's always the fantasy lottery. Besides,... Read More
