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? The Panthers signal-caller threw 51 times against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, yet only completed 25 of those attempts and failed to find the end zone. Perhaps his foot injury is... Read More

Slot Receiver Sleepers to Target in Fantasy Drafts

Depending on the offense, wide receivers who line up in the slot can play an invaluable role in moving the chains.

Jamison Crowder (WR, NYJ) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~135 Overall Current ADP: ~150 Coming over from Washington after an injury-marred 2018 campaign, Crowder can be described as a route technician out of the slot and has the ability to be an asset to fantasy owners in Jet green.

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.
