About Nick Mariano - RotoBaller

Just your run of the mill fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. Just kidding. I'm actually a slightly above average fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. NY born and raised. I run on trails and hike up mountains. Addicted to apples and peanut butter. I could read about cognitive biases forever. Yankees, NY Giants, NY Rangers. However a decade of fantasy sports have really given me more of an appreciation for all teams. I also have a soft spot for the Buccaneers (it's a long story going back to Madden 2000). Feel free to reach out on Twitter, @NMariano53, I'll discuss just about anything.

Week 9 felt a bit "chalkier" than other recent NFL slates, with many big names going off and very few lower-owned players coming on to vulture touchdowns from the big guns. There also weren't any notable injuries (as of Sunday evening), so the waiver wire will consist more of underappreciated assets rather than replacements. We here... Read More
