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 207 articles so far, you can find them below.

Drew Brees - Still a QB1 in Fantasy?

Drew Brees is arguably the greatest fantasy quarterback of all time. Seriously. Over the course of his 16 year career (excluding his rookie year where he didn't play), Brees has led the NFL in completions six times, pass attempts four times, completion percentage four times, yards seven times, and touchdowns four times. Only nine times... Read More

Week 6 Waiver Wire - H2H Category Streamers

I like to consider myself a pioneer of the streaming approach. I won a league about seven years ago completely ignoring saves and just stacking up the starts each week. While streaming is undoubtedly more directly associated with pitching, there's plenty of value in streaming for offense as well. Maybe you have a stacked roster... Read More

Most Improved Offenses After The NFL Draft

Free agency and the NFL Draft are really the only two events that have the ability to instantaneously and significantly impact NFL offenses. Whereas in free agency, it's somewhat of a zero sum game - one offense gets better at the expense of another getting get worse due to players shifting teams - in the... Read More

Who Deserves Blame For Dez Bryant's Disastrous 2017?

On February 28, 2018, I came across a tweet from @BenRogers linking this video of all of Dez Bryant’s 2017 incompletions. The accompanying conclusion was that after watching the video, the majority of the incompletions were not Dez’s fault. I decided to do my own investigation. Here are my observations and conclusions. *Note: There were... Read More

Under the Radar RB Signings - Fantasy Risers or Fallers?

A flurry of activity in the past week has sent fantasy football owners and sports Twitter into a frenzy. Some huge names changed teams and the domino effect will affect dozens of players league-wide. Then again, not every signing has to create a seismic shift in the fantasy universe. There were a number of under the... Read More

Case Keenum to the Broncos - Fantasy Spin

Despite leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship game, Case Keenum was unceremoniously replaced with the huge free agent signing of Kirk Cousins. Keenum immediately found a new home with the Denver Broncos on a two-year deal worth $36 million. Obviously this is a massive upgrade for all Denver fantasy options, so we can... Read More

Sam Bradford to the Cardinals - Fantasy Spin

As of the morning of March 13, 2018, the Arizona Cardinals had zero quarterbacks under contract. By the end of the day, they had two. The Cardinals signed both Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon. I still think the Cardinals should draft a QB project in the second or third round, but Bradford is the clear... Read More

Dion Lewis to the Titans - Fantasy Spin

It is fair to say that the single most obvious offseason move was the Titans release of DeMarco Murray. As early as last summer, it was abundantly clear that the Titans were done with Murray after the 2017 season. Once Murray was released, nothing really changed for Derrick Henry because Henry's 2018 value was always... Read More

Trusting Rookie Wide Receivers in Redraft Leagues

If I had to list one mistake most commonly made by fantasy owners on draft day, it would be recency bias. We've seen it time and time again - owners overreacting to what happened the previous year even when it was so clearly an outlier. The QB boom of 2011. The rookie WR boom of 2014.... Read More

Biggest Busts of 2017: WR

The biggest bust of 2017 was literally the wide receiver position. The article should just end right now. Did you take a WR in the first 36 picks? He was probably a bust. ZeroRB drafters were seriously punished last season as the edge they needed to gain at the WR position was nonexistent. Here are... Read More

Biggest Breakouts at Running Back - 2017 Year in Review

Breakout players are how you win your league. They are the players that finish the season ranked significantly higher than where you drafted them. Since we also have the Biggest Surprises series, I will do my best to distinguish a breakout from a surprise. In doing so, I am making a blanket rule at the... Read More
