Week 16 Running Back Starts and Sits - Lineup Targets and Avoids

This is it everyone. This is the weekend when most fantasy football leagues will be decided. Hopefully, you are playing for the championship.

Week 14 Sits and Starts - Recommended Lineup Targets and Avoids

We are talking about Playoffs! Fantasy Football Playoffs! This is arguably one of the greatest times of the year (if you made the playoffs).

Week 12 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

Two more weeks until the playoffs (in most leagues). Our favorite time, and probably most stressful time, of the fantasy season is finally upon us. This week, fantasy owners had to deal with the Thanksgiving Day games. Matthew Stafford, Ben Roethlisberger and Kirk Cousins are just some of the QBs you had to decide if... Read More

Week 11 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

There are plenty of NFL players that we expected to succeed this season for fantasy football owners. Some of these players responded being productive fantasy producers, and some failed to this point. Additionally, there are some sleepers we expected to see emerge. Again, some of these players hyped as undervalued fantasy assets have lived up... Read More

We are coming to the final four weeks of most fantasy football leagues. Wow. This season is certainly going fast.

Week 9 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

The playoffs are getting closer and closer. Your team’s depth and talent is being tested week after week.

Doug... Read More

Week 8 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

Each week, it is hard to predict which QB will be the breakout star of the week. You know the likes of Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are almost guaranteed to throw for 250-plus yards and at least two TDs. But, who else is likely to have that type of a week? We already know that,... Read More

Week 7 Sits and Starts - Tight Ends Matchups Analysis

Tight end has been an extremely confusing position as we quickly approach the midway point of the 2016 fantasy football season. The favorite to lead the position and a first-round pick in a lot of draft, Rob Gronkowski, got off to a slow start and is just starting to pick it up. Second on the... Read More

Week 6 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

Sammie Coates. Brandon Lafell. Adam Theilen. Did you start any of these wide receivers? These were three of the top-six point scoring wideouts for Week 5. Unexpected? Yes. Improbable? Yes. Unpredictable? Absolutely.   With bye weeks now in full swing, it's important to find players like the aforementioned three to help you win your fantasy league. Now,... Read More

Week 5 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

Week after week, we never know who is going to blow up the stat sheet for a great game. Chances are he is either on the fantasy waiver wire or on your bench. So, what do you do? Submit a waiver claim and get him, making sure to start him the following week. Result? He... Read More

Week 4 Sits And Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

I hope your Week 4 starter wasn't Ryan Tannehill or Andy Dalton-- though neither one played absolutely horribly, neither played amazingly. Thankfully, none of the top QBs of this young season was on display in Thursday night’s showcase. But this week, everyone's fear is now starting: bye weeks. Our first victims are the Philadelphia Eagles... Read More

Week 3 Sits and Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

After each week, every fantasy football team owner needs to assess and reevaluate where their team stands. Especially at this point of the season. Two weeks in means your team is either producing to your expectations - or they are not. This past week featured many injuries to key players: Arian Foster, Adrian Peterson, Doug... Read More

Week 2 Sits and Starts - Sorensen's Matchup Analysis

One week is in the books and now, it is safe to say that you have already attacked the waiver wire for all of those potential Week 1 superstars. Eli Rogers. Jeremy Kerley. Nelson Agholor. These are just some of the many unexpected names that would have been worth starting last week. With the amount... Read More

Overvalued Wide Receivers for 2016 Fantasy Football Drafts

Each and every season, there is hype surrounding some wide receivers that may not deserve it. It could be because of their name (Larry Fitzgerald) or because of what they did last year (Doug Baldwin). Regardless, there are a group of player that are being highly overvalued and have a ring of caution wrapped around them... Read More

2016 Fantasy Football Team Outlook - San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers. You can go back less than 10 years ago and the combination of Philip Rivers, LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates was all promised to finish in the top-12 of their position. Today’s Chargers are not filled with as much certainty. While two of the three previously named players are still active,... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers for Week 7: Brandon Oliver, Stefon Diggs, Crockett Gillmore

Six weeks are in the books and a trend has already appeared in my weekly picks. It appears that the majority of my picks decide to break out a couple weeks after I select them as my deep sleeper for a particular week. For instance, in Week 1, Benjamin Watson was selected as a potential... Read More

Jacob Tamme (TE, ATL) - Fantasy Football PPR Risers

Owned in 6% of Fleaflicker leagues Does anyone remember when Tamme played for the Indianapolis Colts and had Peyton Manning as his quarterback? Can anyone recall what his best season was? I did not think so. To answer that question, Tamme has only gone over 200 receiving yards in a season twice in his 10... Read More

Theo Riddick (RB, DET) - Fantasy Football PPR Risers

Owned in 15% of Fleaflicker leagues Can you name any running back, let alone a second-string RB, that has put together four straight games of five catches or more? Honestly, off the top of my head, I could not think of any until I saw the recent numbers that Riddick has been putting together lately.... Read More

Brandon Coleman (WR, NO) - Fantasy Football PPR Risers?

Owned in 15% of Fleaflicker leagues Coleman started the season strong with a touchdown in the season opener, but began to fell off once Willie Snead started his streak. This week, Marques Colston is expected to miss Thursday night’s game against the Falcons. This means that Coleman will be used once again in three receiver... Read More

Deeper PPR Lineup Sleepers for Week 6: Theo Riddick, Brandon Coleman, Jacob Tamme

What another strange week in the NFL and NFL fantasy land. The amount of unknown players that are coming out of nowhere this season is amazing. Each week there is a handful of players that are surprisingly posting double-digit points. And, some of them, are doing it in consecutive Sundays. Some, as you will see... Read More

Deeper PPR Lineup Sleepers for Week 5: Anthony Dixon, Willie Snead, Maxx Williams

Another week and even more injury news and fantasy controversies have risen. People, we are only a quarter of the way through the season and my fantasy football team consists of Dez Bryant, Ben Roethlisberger, Jordan Reed, and LeSean McCoy. Anybody want to trade me one of their players? I could certainly use the help... Read More

Is Maxx Williams A Deeper Week 5 Lineup Sleeper?

This may have been a player that a lot of people took the chance in Week 4 after seeing the production fellow TE Crockett Gilmore was able to produce before he got hurt. Unfortunately, Williams was a dud (two catches, 17 yards). Williams was the first tight end off the board in the 2015 NFL Draft for... Read More

Is Anthony Dixon A Deeper Week 5 Lineup Sleeper?

Similarly to last week, this pick is dependent on injuries. It is almost a given as of Thursday that both Karlos Williams (concussion) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be sitting out on Sunday. The next back up is Boobie Dixon (and Daniel Herron, who was just signed). Dixon has not seen the field much this... Read More

Deeper PPR Lineup Sleepers for Week 4: Cameron Artis-Payne, Cecil Shorts, Gary Barnidge

Another week in and I hope everyone is doing better than me in their fantasy leagues this season. Going forward, I now have Dez Bryant, LeSean McCoy and Ben Roethlisberger riding the bench for at least the next couple weeks. I guess it was a good thing I traded for Larry Fitzgerald. If you are...

Is Gary Barnidge A Deeper Week 4 Lineup Sleeper?

Everyone has been asking all week: Gary who? Regardless of which team he has been on in the past few seasons, be it the Carolina Panthers or the Cleveland Browns, Barnidge has been buried on the depth chart playing behind Pro-Bowl tight ends in Greg Olsen and Jordan Cameron. Now, he finally gets his chance... Read More

Cecil Shorts (WR, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

This is a player that has been under the radar all season. Does anyone remember a couple years ago when Shorts broke out for the Jacksonville Jaguars? He put up 55 catches, 979 yards and 7 TDs in 14 games. That is almost 18 yards per catch. Since then, he has become more of a... Read More

Biggest Surprises of 2019: Running Back

The 2019 NFL season was an interesting year for the running back position. Christian McCaffrey was the overall RB1, but some of the other top players fell below expectations.

Can a New Coach Fix Baker Mayfield in 2020?

Another season has passed and another disappointment by Browns fans has been realized. Baker Mayfield got the head coach he wanted in Freddie Kitchens in 2019.

Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out. At the quarterback position, we saw some really exciting players start to shine and some older... Read More

Goodbye Runners, Hello Pass-Catching RBs: 2019 Season Trends

As the 2019 summer kept going we all had two things in our minds with regard to September's fantasy drafts and both of them were related to running backs: Where in the world are Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon and when will they be back? It made sense back then (and it still does now,... Read More

2019 was not the record-breaking season for tight ends 2018 was.

Tight End 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.
