I'm The Captain Now... QB Streamers for Week 16

Streaming the quarterback position is just as good of a strategy as anything else that works. If you've managed to string together enough usable QBs on your way to this week's championship round, kudos to you for playing the right matchups. Now with a title on the line, there are some heavy lineup decisions weighing... Read More

Crucial Pivots for Fantasy Football Week 15

Us fantasy folks have a mantra that gets repeated ad nauseam throughout the season. "Start your studs" is the standard cliché you hear when it comes to making obvious lineup decisions. No one should be starting the likes of Derek Carr over Aaron Rodgers just because Carr has an easy matchup...or should they? That's what... Read More

Forget ADP - Bench These Players If You Can

Most leagues will be wrapping up their regular season in Week 13. For others, the playoffs have already begun. Whatever the case may be, this is very much in win-or-go-home territory. There's no room for error in making lineup decisions. That's why you need to bail on underperforming "studs" if you haven't already. No reason... Read More

Is Lamar Miller Back to Fantasy RB2 Status?

I've been accused of being a Lamar Miller apologist over the last few seasons. Some of it is warranted, some of it way off-base. The crux of my pro-Miller argument has always been that you don't always need razzle-dazzle from the running back position. Sometimes it's perfectly acceptable to just be a consistent source of...

The Curious Case of Corey Davis

Mohamed Sanu, Taylor Gabriel, Cole Beasley, Dede Westbrook...I could go on and on in listing all the random players who are having a better year than Corey Davis. It won't make you feel any better about drafting him, though. He's been about as disappointing as it gets as far as high profile wide receivers go.... Read More

Tre'Quan Smith (WR, NO) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues UPDATE: Ted Ginn was placed on injured reserve on Thursday 10/18. Ginn could return later this season, but he'll have to miss at least eight weeks. He can be safely left to the waiver wire now. ANALYSIS: In his absence, this creates much larger roles... Read More

Geoff Swaim (TE, DAL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Dallas Cowboys tight end Geoff Swaim has flirted with appearing on this list for a weeks now so here he is. The Dallas Cowboys have struggled as a whole so it's difficult to view the raw receiving totals as a positive. Swaim's role in the... Read More

LeGarrette Blount (RB, DET) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN:  12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount has magically maintained fantasy relevance for what feels like six decades and no one understands how. He's the prototypical bowling ball style running back who brings real life value to NFL teams. In a weird, infuriating way for... Read More

C.J. Beathard (QB, SF) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: What a time to be alive. San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard is a decent waiver pickup by virtue of an inflated fantasy quarterback position. Basically as long as you're not Nathan Peterman level bad, you'll end up being worth a look at some point or... Read More

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 7

Apologies for not telling you to add fantasy superstars Nick O'Leary, David Moore, and Brock Osweiller last week. Clearly I have failed you as a fantasy football writer. I am not worthy of your page views. I'm speaking sarcastically, of course. Those were just three of the names that make you roll your eyes and... Read More

Sophomore Slumps: Should You Buy Low On Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette?

Please oh please can someone go revive Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette? Fortunately it appears as if the former will be available as early as this Sunday, but we are running out of time before these guys have sufficiently ruined fantasy teams. These two sophomore running backs were drafted as early as the back end... Read More

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 6

The wildness that is the 2018 NFL season continued in Week 5, gifting us some curious real-life outcomes to go along with the usual fantasy absurdity. We've got the curious case of the Buffalo Bills, the Browns already won their second game, the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles on the ropes, and Amari Cooper... Read More

Are the Atlanta Falcons a Fantasy Juggernaut Again?

The odds of repeating an MVP-caliber season, let alone a historic one, are not very high in the NFL. That's why the expectation that the Atlanta Falcons would be just as good in 2017 as they were in 2016 was a bit off-base. You were banking on Matt Ryan having back-to-back MVP seasons. You were...

What To Do With Your San Francisco 49ers in Fantasy?

The season-ending injury to Jimmy Garoppolo triggered a somber mood for the San Francisco 49ers season, especially from a fantasy perspective. C.J. Beathard is by no means a top-32 starting quarterback in the NFL, but he does have some familiarity with this offense in his second year. Still, the questions remain. Who can you realistically trust on... Read More

Selling False RB2s - Why It's OK To Bail Out Now

We seem to end up doing this same song and dance every year with running backs. Whether it's someone like a Bilal Powell or Tarik Cohen popping early only to fizzle out, or general disappointments like Jay Ajayi and Adrian Peterson circa 2017, it usually takes a bit of digging to figure out. Here we'll... Read More

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 5

Josh Bellamy. Logan Paulsen. John Ross. Those are just three of the random players who scored early touchdowns during Sunday afternoon's Week 4 slate. You won't find those names on the list of deeper sleepers below, but I just want you read them over a few times before we proceed. No one in their right mind... Read More

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 4

While it wasn't the prototypical "oh my god we're all gonna die" week for fantasy injuries, there were enough scares this week to make us hold our breath more than we would have liked. The big loss coming out of Week 3 was that of Jimmy Garoppolo tearing his ACL. An absolute brutal blow to... Read More

Carson Wentz is Back! Should You Trade Him?

That headline is sure to get some wide-eyed looks and eye rolls but I'm serious. Now that he's back, should you trade Carson Wentz immediately? It's a much more legitimate idea than it sounds. It's hard to envision a scenario where the pre-injury MVP-to-be can automatically be on the block the second he returns, but... Read More

Tavon Austin (WR, DAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

James Washington (WR, PIT) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

Chris Ivory (RB, BUF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 3

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

Bench Your Bills? LeSean McCoy and Kelvin Benjamin Outlooks

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...

Javorius Allen (RB, BAL) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

Tyrod Taylor (QB, CLE) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

Ted Ginn (WR, NO) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

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

Deeper PPR Sleepers Heading Into Week 2

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

Deeper PPR Sleepers for Fantasy Football (Week 16)

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...

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

Running Back 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.

Biggest Busts of 2019: Wide Receivers
