During the draft season, we love to get hyped up on young, up-and-coming players. Spinning yarns about future stardom and inflating their draft price to the point where many of these sleepers are no longer values. The purpose of this article is to try and identify sleepers that no one is excited about - the... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~145 CURRENT ADP: ~155 ANALYSIS: Do you like Saquon Barkley? What about Odell Beckham Jr.? Evan Engram? All of those players are being drafted at sixth or higher at their positions, yet Manning is currently the 21st quarterback off the board. It’s really easy to dislike Manning’s prospects coming into the season. He was the 24th ranked... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: It’s always tough to deal with legal situations in fantasy football, especially since the NFL has proven to be inconsistent with its punitive measures regarding domestic violence situations in the past. Regardless, the fantasy fallout of a potential LeSean McCoy suspension would shift the entire outlook of the Bills offense... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~220 CURRENT ADP: ~230 ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor fell flat on his face during his only season in Washington.

We've got a ten game featured slate on DraftKings this Sunday, and it's an odd pitching slate. Going into the season we never would've expected to see Zach Eflin ($10,400) as the most expensive pitcher on a two-game slate, let alone a main slate. With a lack of a true ace there is a bloated middle...

There is a twelve game featured slate on DraftKings today, with a few high priced pitchers and high expected run totals among the slate of games. Predictably, MIA @ COL boasts the biggest total with an 11.5 O/U. DET @ CLE is next with a 9.5 O/U, and four other games have a 9 O/U.... Read More

We’ve got a large Sunday slate on DraftKings today. Usually DraftKings doesn’t lump games that start after 3:00 PM EST into the main slate on Sundays, but they extended it today and got the two games with the highest Vegas O/U totals on the slate. ARI @ COL has an 11.5 O/U and HOU @... Read More
