Air Yards Analysis - Risers for Week 4

The 'Air-Yards' metric is an extremely useful tool when analyzing how wide receivers are used. The concept was created by then-RotoViz contributor Josh Hermsmeyer, who has since launched his own website, AirYards.com. The majority of the data I discuss in this article was originally produced there, and I strongly encourage you to check out the... Read More

Running Back Stat Sleepers - Missed Tackles Forced

Plunging into the world of football analytics is without question a great way to find fantasy sleepers for the coming season. Especially in the case of running backs, considering overall elusiveness is arguably the best way to determine how good (or bad) a player's performance was. We're going to dive head-first into some grade-A elusiveness... Read More

Plunging into the world of football analytics is without question the best way to find fantasy sleepers for the coming season.

Dak Prescott (QB, DAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Sleeper

We continue our preseason fantasy football sleeper series with a look at Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. While the first few rounds of every draft are essentially a wash-rinse-repeat of the consensus top-36, we can always count on those middle and late rounds to cement our confidence in this year's sleepers.

Cole Beasley (WR, DAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~250 CURRENT ADP: ~260 ANALYSIS: Slot receivers genuinely do not come more prototypical than Cole Beasley. The 5'8" veteran ran a whopping 87 percent of his routes out of the slot last year and garnered the positions 18th-most slot targets. Beasley didn't actually lead his team in slot production, however. The now retired Jason Witten led... Read More

Randall Cobb (WR, GB) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: Just like every other Green Bay WR that was not Davante Adams, Randall Cobb's season was essentially lost once Aaron Rodgers went down. Cobb averaged over 5.5 receptions and eight targets per game with Rodgers directing traffic compared to just 4.1 catches and 5.5 targets without him. Health was also a factor... Read More

Julian Edelman (WR, NE) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~60 CURRENT ADP: ~70 ANALYSIS: In terms of raw targets, only one team managed to throw towards the slot more times than Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. While Julian Edelman lost his season before it began to a torn ACL, both Chris Hogan and the since-departed Danny Amendola filled the role with grace. Amendola ran over... Read More
