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 209 articles so far, you can find them below.


AP in AZ - Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

It is exceedingly rare that the NFL sees relevant in-season trades, especially from a fantasy standpoint. The last time we saw something like this was when everyone thought the Browns were insane for trading Trent Richardson to the Colts. Turns out that was grand theft of a draft pick by the Browns. On Tuesday, October... Read More

Fantasy Football Risers and Fallers: Week 6

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

Tight Ends Waiver Wire - Week 6 Pickups and Adds

While there were plenty of movers and shakers on the fantasy scene, the tight end position didn't see as much volatility. Injuries have been the biggest story in the tight end world, but the tight ends remained healthy, at least during this past week. So here we are, feverishly looking to analyze statistics and projections to... Read More

Down Goes Dalvin - Analyzing the Impact of Dalvin Cook's Injury

Before the season started, I was mystified at the high ranking of so many rookies. I even said to a friend that to justify the lofty expectations, this rookie class would essentially have to break records. As it turns out, it was well on its way to doing so (and still might). Amongst those leading... Read More

Allen Robinson - Deal or No Deal?

What do we do with Allen Robinson? Guys like him are some of the most difficult players to analyze. He doesn't have great straight line speed, but Robinson's workout metrics are otherwise all in the upper echelon of WRs. His speed, burst, agility, and catch radius are all in the top third in the league... Read More

Stop that Hype Train! - Kenny Golladay

It's not the easiest thing to distinguish between legitimate hype and preseason buzz. Kenny Golladay should not be a legitimately hyped prospect. Not yet. While he makes for a tantalizing dynasty pick, he's gaining traction enough that he's appearing on ADP lists in re-draft leagues. This is a clear call to stop the hype train... Read More

Preseason Depth Chart Risers and Fallers

Over the course of the offseason, training camp, and the preseason, many names will be floated around as potentially having fantasy value. The preseason is typically when all that gets cleared up as depth charts are finalized, roster cuts are made, and we get some clarity on who is positioned where on each team. The... Read More

Sleeper Defenses for the 2017 Fantasy Football Season

It is exceedingly difficult to predict how defenses will fare over the course of the season. In 2016, half of the preseason top 12 fantasy defenses failed to finish top-12. Some of them didn't even come close. Others that were ranked highly barely stayed in the group. There are very few defenses that I consider... Read More

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie - Sleepers to Avoid in 2017

I'm sure you've heard this expression before. Every year, the word "sleeper" is thrown around a lot as we're all anxious and eager to find the next big thing that no one is really talking about.

Fantasy Football Auction Values Analysis - PPR Leagues

Auctions really don't get enough love. I am so much more excited for my auction drafts than I am for my snake drafts. There are a handful of players I am way more bullish on than consensus (which you'll see later on in this analysis) and in an auction, I know I have full control over... Read More

Pay Up! - Auction Draft Strategies

I did my first auction draft back in 2010. It was an unmitigated disaster. I had gone into the draft very familiar with player values and I refused to overspend. I ended up with a fantastic team...if you could start every player on a 16-man roster! The All-Value team failed spectacularly because everyone was good,... Read More

Bull Rush - Players Whose Market Share of Targets is Bound to Increase

Each NFL offseason is ripe with changes that impact the fantasy value of various players. Whether it's the player's team changing or the player changing teams, there are many things that can affect a player's season outlook that have nothing to do with his actual ability. Opportunity is one of the most important factors in... Read More

C.J. Prosise (RB, SEA) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

Before profiling C.J. Prosise as a fantasy football sleeper for 2017, it is important to note that I'm approaching this from a PPR position. CJ Prosise is far less valuable in standard leagues. In standard leagues, I just wouldn't draft any Seattle running back. In PPR leagues, Prosise is the guy I want not just... Read More

Austin Hooper (TE, ATL) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

HOOP! There it is! At least that's what I yell every time Austin Hooper scores a touchdown (Okay I lied - I actually do that whenever he catches a pass. My friends really hate me). After he was seldom used in 2016, Austin could be Hoopin' it up a whole lot more in 2017. Hooper wouldn't... Read More

2017 Player vs. Player - Mike vs. Tyrell Williams?

The Chargers have Keenan Allen, who has proven (when healthy) to be an elite level possession receiver. They signed Travis Benjamin last offseason. Dontrelle Inman has been serviceable when on the field. And last year injuries forced them to deploy Tyrell Williams, who proved himself capable of being one of the better receivers in the league. So... Read More

Who's #1? Making a Case for the First Overall Pick in Re-draft Leagues

Tonight's contest is a Fatal Four Way match and it is for the right to be selected number one in 2017 fantasy football drafts. This match will be contested under PPR rules and will be no disqualification! Last year's top consensus pick is back to stake a claim for a repeat, but he'll have stiff competition... Read More

Are You Ready for Some (Fantasy) Football?

I made my debut in the fantasy sports world with baseball. It was the spring of 2003 and I was a freshman in high school when an old friend decided to start up a fantasy baseball league. Unsurprisingly, that fall, the same friend started up a fantasy football league. For the longest time, I considered... Read More
