About Jason Katz - RotoBaller

I've been playing fantasy sports since 2003 and writing about it since 2015. You can find my work here on RotoBaller or for FantasyPros, FFToday and Fantasyfootballmetrics. I'm big on analytics and making decisions/predictions based on what the math says is the most likely outcome in a given situation. I'm a lifelong Cowboys fan living in New York. Eli Manning is not a Hall of Famer. Dez caught it.

Jason Katz - RotoBaller has written 185 articles so far, you can find them below.


Fantasy Football Risers and Fallers - Week 3

Whether due to their own play, the play of others, or injuries, players' stock increases and decreases on a weekly basis. Perhaps more than any other, the NFL is a league that experiences ups and downs at a rapid pace. With only 16 games, there’s little room for error and seemingly endless opportunities for improvement.... Read More

The Cut List - Players on the Chopping Block (Week 3)

This is your weekly list of players to drop. I will do my best to limit this list to injured players and players you might consider holding. If you roster pure handcuffs or backups, obviously you can let them go at any time. The players on this list will, ideally, be guys that aren't clearly... Read More

Jason Katz's Bold Predictions - 2019 Fantasy Football

In my group of friends, I am known for making outlandish claims that, most of the time, even I don't believe. It antagonizes the hell out of them because they know I'm just complaining about how LeSean McCoy is going to finish with zero touchdowns because I'm annoyed it's Week 3 and he hasn't scored...

Jaylen Samuels (RB, PIT) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~140 This is probably the most obvious name on the list of handcuffs with standalone value. James Conner is a top pick in fantasy leagues. Jaylen Samuels' role isn't clearly defined just yet. The preseason will likely give us some greater insight into how the Steelers plan to... Read More

Running Back Handcuffs Worth Drafting as Standalone Players

This article gets more and more challenging every season. In order to write it, I have no choice but to expand the definition of a handcuff. As the number of teams using multiple running backs increases, fewer and fewer RBs are handcuffs by the purest meaning of the term. Some of the guys mentioned here... Read More

Running Back Committees to Avoid in 2019

The list of running back committees seemingly grows larger every year. As more NFL teams embrace analytics and the modern game, they understand the replaceability of running backs. With fewer teams rostering a truly elite three-down back, a greater number of them deploy multiple backs, each bringing something different to the table. As someone who... Read More

Scratch-Off TIme - Unexciting Lotto Tickets that Could Pay Off

When you get into the latter stages of your draft, I know what you want to do. Don't lie to me. You want the young guys, you want rookies, you want super athletes. You want to take shots on the hype guys and "sleepers." That's all well and good, and you're not wrong to target... Read More

ADP Showdown - Jameis Winston vs Philip Rivers

You will be hard pressed to find two guys closer in ADP than Jameis Winston and Philip Rivers. As of the time of this writing, they are right next to each other at 10.07. If you are waiting on a QB (which you should be), the 10th round is a perfect time to grab one.... Read More

Le'Veon Bell - Still a Fantasy First-Rounder?

We are largely in uncharted territory when it comes to Le'Veon Bell. If there has been a previous instance of an elite player sitting out a full season and changing teams, I'm not aware of it. We last saw Bell play football in 2017. As a Steeler, Bell benefited from one of the league's best offensive... Read More

Who's #1 in Redraft Leagues?

You want the first overall pick in your draft. Even if you think you don't, you do. Historical data supports that the higher you pick, the more likely you are to win. Sometimes, having the first overall pick makes things easy. In 2017, David Johnson was the obvious top pick. In 2015 and 2013, it... Read More

The Grass Isn't Always Greener - Free Agents Fantasy Fallers

Every season we see several fantasy relevant players switch teams. With free agency occurring in March, the instant reaction is there, but it doesn't always hold. It is important to reanalyze those moves later in the offseason, particularly after the NFL Draft. Now that it is June, we have a much better idea of how... Read More

Kyler Murray Is a QB1 in 2019 Redraft Leagues

For reasons that are completely understandable, the primary focus on rookies after they are drafted is on their long-term outlook, particularly as it pertains to keeper/dynasty formats. Much of the discussion centers around where a rookie should go in a rookie draft and how valuable he will be over the next few years. What about... Read More

Rookie Spotlight - Diontae Johnson

One of the most perplexing selections of the 2019 NFL Draft was Pittsburgh Steelers' third-round wide receiver, Diontae Johnson. The Steelers took Johnson in the third round ahead of dozens of WRs which the vast majority of scouts and analysts had ranked above him. Wherever I looked, I saw a sixth or seventh round grade...

Rookie Spotlight - Miles Sanders

The Philadelphia Eagles made Miles Sanders the second running back selected in the 2019 NFL Draft. While there was very little consensus regarding the top backs in this class, most analysts had Sanders somewhere in or near their top five. Sanders (along with most RBs) was probably overdrafted by the Eagles, but that is more... Read More

Rookie Spotlight - Riley Ridley

If you are a fan of Riley Ridley, Georgia football, or the Chicago Bears, you may not like what you are about to read. If you are Calvin Ridley, thanks for reading my article! But also you should close it out right now. When evaluating prospects' likelihood of NFL success, we care about three main... Read More

Rookie Wide Receivers Set to Make a Splash in 2019

The 2019 NFL Draft saw 28 wide receivers find homes with NFL teams. A handful others were added as undrafted free agents. The influx of new talent into the league every year always has an effect on the players already there. It goes without saying that most of the rookie WRs will have no impact... Read More

Kareem Hunt to Cleveland - Fantasy Impact

Everyone knew Kareem Hunt was not only going to get a second chance in the NFL, but was going to be signed before the 2019 season began. What we didn't know or expect was for it to happen so soon, particularly before the NFL even completed its investigation of Hunt's shameful behavior that caused the... Read More

Full-Length Playoff Leagues - Fantasy Football Strategy & Picks

The regular season is over, but that doesn't mean the fantasy fun stops there. While certainly inferior to full season leagues, playoff fantasy football is still a great way to carry on playing this game that we love and providing us all with a vested interest in each of these playoff games, no matter how...
