Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was a fantastic fantasy find in 2017, but do not be surprised if he is an unforgivable fantasy flop in 2018. It is probably not fair or accurate to label Drake as a sleeper heading into the 2018 season. Fantasy players with half a brain or a couple hours... Read More

We continue our preseason fantasy football sleeper series with a look at Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles. 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. The definition of... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target ~95 CURRENT ADP: ~105 ANALYSIS: Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was able to digest the NFL game from the sidelines for 99 percent of last season, learning from veteran signal caller Alex Smith and one of the top coaching staffs in the league that is chock full of offensive minds. He did get to... Read More

The hype train for Green Bay’s Jamaal Williams could be derailed during the early portion of the 2018 NFL season. There has been a lot of chatter surrounding Williams this offseason in fantasy football circles. The former fourth-round running back is the prime candidate to be the top tailback for Aaron Rodgers’ high-powered offense heading... Read More

The yards are getting harder and harder to come by for today’s running backs in the NFL. There were only nine 1,000-yard rushers in the NFL last season, the second-lowest amount over the past 15 years. The 2018 rushing champion, Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt, led the league with the lowest amount of yards (1,327) since... Read More

It is a great time for tight ends in the NFL and in fantasy football! Tight ends are going to be all the rage for fantasy football owners in 2018, just like open-concept layouts and barn doors are the rage for people buying new houses. Fantasy owners can choose from grizzled veterans who have been... Read More

The pass-happy NFL was not as receiver-friendly in 2017 as it was the year before. Running the ball made a comeback this past season, as did spreading the ball around to many different pass catchers instead of zoning in one guy all the time. 24 wide receivers broke the 1,000-yard barrier in 2016, compared to...

Fantasy owners do not always build their dynasty league teams around quarterbacks like the NFL does, but that does not mean making a quarterback the cornerstone of your fantasy franchise is a bad idea. Running backs are still arguably the most important position players in fantasy football, but quarterbacks rank a close second and gain... Read More

If you do not believe quarterback is the most important position in football, look no further than the 2018 NFL draft for evidence to convince you otherwise. Four of the first 10 picks were quarterbacks, and fantasy football owners were watching with sharper eyes than coupon clippers use to check over the Sunday newspaper. One... Read More

It is never too early to check out the fantasy football stock market, especially in dynasty leagues. The tight end position is locked and loaded with more firepower than the Avengers had against Thanos. You have veterans with 1,000-yard years littered all over their football cards and young phenoms with the potential to post fantastic... Read More

Fantasy football owners know that changing teams usually changes a player’s fantasy value, and many times for the better. NFL general managers have been paying free-agent wide receivers more millions this offseason than the producers of Big Bang Theory pay its stars. It seems all you need is a 100 career receptions on your résumé... Read More

Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce have a new running mate in their receiving ring, and this guy has the talent to be the best of the bunch…or an Achilles heel that could make him the biggest fantasy flop of the threesome. The Kansas City Chiefs upgraded their pass-catching corps by signing speedster Sammy Watkins to... Read More

The free-agent signing period only opened about a week ago in the NFL, but most of the available running backs with any fantasy value have already signed with new teams. Trading during the offseason in dynasty leagues is trickier than hiding your "magazine" stash from your spouse, especially if your deals involve a running back... Read More

Fantasy football dynasties can still be built on the shoulders of running backs, even though the NFL is a pass-first league built around quarterbacks and receiving corps. The running back position is not be loaded with as many 1,000-yard workhorses as there was 5-10 years ago, and that makes it even more important to have... Read More

2018 could very well be “The Year of the Tight End.” The position in fantasy football is going to be as loaded with breakout candidates in 2018 as Starbucks is with espressos and acoustic music. While the position is top-heavy with Pro Bowl veterans like New England’s Rob Gronkowski, Carolina’s Greg Olsen and Kansas City’s... Read More

Not every fantasy football team can have Rob Gronkowski on its roster, but many dynasty fantasy squads can have a good tight end that will contribute for the next several seasons. There should be plenty of tight ends to build fantasy football dynasty league teams around in 2018. Three talented tight ends were selected in... Read More

The NFL season may have just ended with Philadelphia Eagles fans shaking their fists and waving their cheesesteaks in the air in triumph, but smart fantasy players have already begun planning for 2018 and beyond. The pass-first NFL is never short on receivers for fantasy owners. Finding the right receivers at the right prices or... Read More

It is never too early to figure out which running backs are going to be the best sleepers in fantasy football next season – even when this season’s Super Bowl was played less than a week ago. Even though the NFL is still a passing league dominated by its quarterbacks and wide receivers, running backs... Read More

Early 2018 Sleepers: TE

The early outlook for 2018 for fantasy football’s top tight ends is as bright as a summer’s day at the Jersey Shore. 2017 was a decent season for the tight end position in fantasy football. New England’s Rob Gronkowski only missed two games due to injury, Kansas City’s Travis Kelce had his second straight 1,000-yard... Read More

The AFC and NFC Conference championship games are here and so are the under-the-radar booms and busts! This is the weekend fans find out who they will be watching play football in between the Super Bowl commercials in two weeks! This is also probably the last weekend fantasy football lovers will really get to enjoy... Read More

Some football fans and experts label the Divisional Playoff round the best weekend of NFL football of the year, and it might be the best weekend for playoff fantasy football as well. Many of fantasy football’s top performers in 2017 will be on the field this weekend. But while Tom Brady, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell,... Read More

The NFL regular season might be over, but the under-the-radar booms and busts will not stop until a team wins the Super Bowl! The wacky Wild Card weekend is upon football fans and fantasy players.

The final week of the NFL’s regular season is upon us, and whether you are in your fantasy league’s championship game or trying one last time to win thousands of dollars in a one-day contest, picking the right booms and busts is a must. My apologies for skipping out on last week’s column quicker than... Read More

If your fantasy team survived unlucky Week 13 (unlike many of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals), then you are gearing up for one of the biggest weeks of the fantasy football season. This is the last week of the regular season or the opening week of the playoffs in most fantasy football leagues. If... Read More

If your fantasy football league has no trade deadline or only has one once your playoffs start, consider that an early holiday present! Not many of you out there can still broker that blockbuster or fleece a fool that will set your fantasy squad up to roll through your league’s playoffs like Christian Okoye used... Read More

This is the week where fantasy football owners can expect to be unlucky. It is the unlucky 13th week of the NFL season! This could be the week your quarterback is stuck throwing in 60-mph winds, your receiver is stuck with a third-string signal caller tossing wobbly passes at his feet, or your kicker is... Read More

“Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean there are no more sales for fantasy football players to take advantage of. If your fantasy league has no trading deadline or waits until the playoffs to institute one, you can still make that bodacious blockbuster that sets your team up... Read More

Can you believe there are only six weeks left in the NFL’s regular season? Two months ago, Mike Glennon and Brian Hoyer were starting quarterbacks, Dalvin Cook and Aaron Rodgers were healthy, and Denver and Green Bay looked like the two favorites to meet in the Super Bowl. A lot has changed since then, but... Read More

There is plenty to be thankful for this week, especially if your fantasy football league still allows you to make trades this late into the NFL season. If your fantasy league’s deadline has not come yet or does not have any deadline at all, by all means take advantage and make a trade or two... Read More
