Eight receivers had 100 receptions or more. Guess what? None of them are mentioned in this column. I am... Read More

2018 was the Year of the Tight End in fantasy football… but only if you had San Francisco’s George Kittle, Philadelphia’s Zach Ertz, or Kansas City’s Travis Kelce on your roster.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Jordan Reed injured for the umpteenth time, Vernon Davis will be Washington’s top tight end for the foreseeable future.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas can only be used in touchdown leagues at this juncture since he has not shown consistency with his reception and yardage numbers.

The opening week of the playoffs is upon many fantasy football leagues around the country and world, so many leagues might not... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you believed that the Los Angeles Rams offense would sputter because Cooper Kupp tore his ACL, you are looking dumber than Georgia head coach Kirby Smart did when he called for that fake punt against Alabama. The Rams are still scoring up a... Read More

This could be the last week millions of fantasy football players will have to worry about which tight end they will be using. Week 14 is the final week of the regular season in many fantasy football leagues, so if you have been rotating journeymen and has-beens in and out of the tight end spot... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Baltimore drafted two tight ends in April, and Mark Andrews was not the first one. First-rounder Hayden Hurst has been banged-up and disappointing during his rookie campaign, however, and Andrews has been healthier, steadier and the better fantasy option, especially in recent weeks. Andrews will... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New Orleans Saints tight end Dan Arnold was third on the Saints depth chart at tight end behind veterans Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill as of a few weeks ago, but the converted wide receiver caught 10 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown over New...

Week 13 will have the biggest abundance of under-the-radar booms and busts for fantasy football since the first month of the season. The NFL schedule is kind to fantasy players from here on out. There are no more byes for any teams for the remainder of the season. If your fantasy squad is shorthanded, it... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Should we make something of Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis going for 73 yards and a touchdown in Colt McCoy’s first start of the season? It could mean something, or it could mean nothing. All I know is Washington’s weak wideouts make it... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Matthew Stafford is running out of pass-catchers to throw to with Golden Tate traded away and Marvin Jones sidelined with a knee injury. The receiving corps is Kenny Golladay and several clouds of dust. Tight end Michael Roberts was targeted a season-high six times on Thanksgiving by Stafford and is... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon is the top tight end pick in many fantasy leagues right now.

There will be a lot less scoring in fantasy football games in Week 12.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Every time I think Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates should be put out to pasture, he takes a dip in the Fountain of Youth and surprises the fantasy football world with another great game.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It takes pass catchers a little longer than other position players to adjust to the NFL game, and Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith is a prime example.
