Thursday Night Football Matchups Analysis - Week 3

I will ask the obvious question on the minds of many who watched Thursday Night Football last week: what is the deal with Cam Newton?

How to Approach the Patriots Backfield in 2019

Success for a running back in fantasy football is largely about volume. Workhorse backs who dominate snaps are ideal, committees who rotate depending on the game script are a problem.

Quarterback Stat Sleepers - Adjusted Completion Percentage

There are plenty of factors that go into a fantasy quarterback's success in any given season.
