2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Running Backs (Part 1)

In my last article, I introduced this series where I'll be providing shorter blurbs to help preview fantasy relevant prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft. Today, we'll be taking a look at the RB position. Not only is this a strong class at the very top, but it also is incredibly deep. It may not... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Tight End Tiered Rankings

Last in our pre-combine tiered ranking analysis is the tight end position. While production can help identify potential contributors at the NFL level, the combine plays a large part in the evaluation process. Workouts such as 40-yard dash and bench press have been found to have some correlation with NFL success, along with draft age... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Wide Receivers (Part 1)

Similar to the RB position, there's still plenty of debate about who's at the top of the class for wide receivers and what the order is at the top. As we jump into the prospects, I want to give a preview of my general style of analysis. Based on the work done by Kevin Cole, I... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Quarterback Tiered Rankings

In my recent 2018 NFL Draft prospect preview series, I provided an introduction of the most noteworthy players in the order that they are currently projected to be drafted, but I didn't entire lay out my personal rankings. In this space, I will break down each tier of my 2018 NFL rookie rankings by position, beginning with... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Wide Receiver Tiered Rankings

In the first two editions of my tiered rankings, I broke down the quarterback and running back positions. Today, I'll provide some insight into my wide receiver rankings for dynasty purposes. Unlike QB and RB, this isn't seen by most experts as a particularly strong class. There is no Julio Jones or A.J. Green at... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Running Back Tiered Rankings

Earlier, I began my tiered analysis of prospective NFL rookies with a look at the quarterback draft class. In this space, I will break down each tier of my rookie rankings by position, continuing with running backs. With a class a deep as this, tier breakdowns are critical for identifying value in dynasty drafts. But... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Wide Receivers (Part 2)

Part one of my 2018 NFL Draft Wide Receivers preview featured six of the wide receivers projected to be drafted early, however much of the excitement for this draft class is in the depth. Once again, we'll be primarily using the regression tree created by Kevin Cole to examine the production of the prospects with success being... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Running Backs (Part 2)

In Part One for RBs, I highlighted six running backs (actually seven, but Bryce Love decided to pull a surprise return to school) who have the potential to be drafted highly in the upcoming NFL Draft, but my general takeaway from this class is the depth. This class goes about 16 to 20 deep with players who could... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Quarterbacks (Part 2)

Part one of my 2018 NFL Draft quarterbacks preview featured the five most exciting quarterbacks from this upcoming NFL draft, but this class does have a bit of depth so this is part two of my QB breakdowns. Most of these blurbs will be slightly shorter than part one because they're unlikely to be drafted... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Tight Ends

Today we'll continue to evaluate the 2018 NFL draft class by taking a look at the tight end position. Typically, tight ends take a little extra time to develop into contributing members of the offense, but 2017 proved that some can make an immediate impact. While this class has some high-caliber talent, the expectation should... Read More

2018 NFL Draft Class Preview - Quarterbacks (Part 1)

Over the next few weeks, I'll be providing quick NFL Draft previews for 2018 fantasy-relevant prospects at the quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end positions. As a general format, the previews will be in two parts, with the exception being tight end. Part one will feature previews on the highest projected draft picks... Read More

What is more frustrating than a running back by committee team? Oh, that's right, it's nothing. But with the growing availability of databases full of statistics, there are more resources than ever to determine which RB is the best option to acquire before the true value is made clear to your leaguemates. One of the... Read More
