About Zach - RotoBaller

I am a fantasy baseball and football fanatic. I've been playing for 8 years now and I like to think I learn more every year. I grew up a Yankees fan but came to appreciate the sport as a whole. Follow my Twitter for more sports updates @LopsidedTrades

Zach - RotoBaller has written 314 articles so far, you can find them below.


Every year during the NFL draft, there are veterans who lose their starting jobs to incoming rookies and see a loss in value and subsequently drop in fantasy drafts. There are also players whose value receives a boost in value due to a lack of competition coming in, or a player coming into an offense... Read More

The people have spoken. Unfortunately what they’ve said is something I strongly disagree with. Currently, the ADP of Demaryius Thomas in a 12 team PPR league is 29th overall and WR17 on Fantasy Football Calculator. This is something I truly don't understand. Thomas had some drop issues and bad quarterbacking last year and it led to... Read More

If I had to describe Odell Beckham’s sophomore season in one word I would use the word ‘fascinating’. As far as his ability goes, OBJ continued to amaze and dazzle fans of football. Of course, I don’t think I could write this article without mentioning some of the negative aspects of his personality that shined... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Sam Bradford has scored 16 and 17 fantasy points in his last two games (vs. Arizona and vs. Washington), and on paper, this is an even easier matchup. Heading into Week 16, the New York Giants have given up 15 fantasy points or... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14- and 16-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: I don’t really care what AJ McCarron does Monday Night against the Denver Broncos-- his matchup against that elite defense won’t say much about his performance against the Baltimore Ravens. In his first two games with significant playing time, he has shown that... Read More

Brandon Weeden Impressing in Houston

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14- and 16-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: If there is one thing Brandon Weeden does really well, I would have to say it is feeding his top receiving weapon over and over again. We saw it with Josh Gordon in 2013, and we saw it with DeAndre Hopkins (11 targets... Read More

There is just one more week left in the regular season. For many that means the fantasy season is already over. However, for the few that may still be playing in Week 17 without a sure thing at QB I’ve got you covered. First let’s look back at Week 16. With four QBs left to... Read More

Last week this column feature two obvious QB streams that turned out to be...not so obvious. Ryan Fitzpatrick was right at my stream threshold of 15 points. Underwhelming but acceptable. Meanwhile Alex Smith fell victim to game flow as the Chiefs went up 21-7 early behind a big Charcandrick West run and a defensive score.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Streaming quarterbacks against the New York Giants has worked very well the last several weeks. Over the last seven games, every QB has scored at least 15 points. The Giants have also given up the most passing yards on the entire season. Meanwhile,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: I have not given Kirk Cousins nearly enough respect this season. After his third game with at least 25 points, it’s finally time to acknowledge the really nice season that Cousins is having. He has more points than preseason favorites Ryan Tannehill and... Read More

Is Johnny Manziel Turning the Corner?

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: I’m kind of disappointed that Johnny Manziel hasn’t run more this season, because that would make him a LOT more interesting from a fantasy perspective. Out of the quarterbacks owned in under 25% of leagues, I still like him the most anyway, as... Read More

It's A.J. McCarron Time in Cincinnati

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Andy Dalton is out with a fractured thumb, and A.J. McCarron is eager to make the most of his opportunity. We saw the good and the bad in the first significant playing time of his career. McCarron threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns,... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick Just Keeps Rolling

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Ryan Fitzpatrick is on fire, with three straight starts of 24 or more fantasy points. His WR duo of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker has proven to be too much for defenses to stop lately. The Cowboys are a solid but not great... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 48% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: I recommend Alex Smith about every other week, but last week I shied away and he didn’t meet my threshold of 15 points, so I’ll take that as a positive! Still, he did hit double digits for the 11th straight game. He will definitely... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Brown was already a hot waiver commodity this week when Thomas Rawls was lost for the season with a broken ankle. But he became my #1 pickup for the last few weeks of the season when the Seahawks released RB DuJuan Harris Tuesday... Read More

I hope you made it through your first playoff matchup or advanced into the playoffs in Week 14! Unfortunately the QB streams were pretty disappointing. Tyrod Taylor delivered a decent game that meets our standards but it was still underwhelming given the matchup. In a huge surprise, Jameis Winston totally flopped on what should have... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Brian Hoyer has had at least 14 fantasy points in eight of his 10 games this season. The two in which he didn’t, he missed at least 15 snaps due to being benched and an injury. In his most recent game, he... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Stream in All Leagues, Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 48% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: We’ve gotten to the point where starting a quarterback against the Saints is just an automatic thing. The Saints are now up to a whopping 35 touchdowns allowed to six interceptions after giving up five more to Cam... Read More

Grab Tyrod Taylor While He's Hot

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 41% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Tyrod Taylor has at least 25 points in two consecutive games, and I’m shocked his ownership is this low after the game he had against the Chiefs. He added three passing touchdowns again vs. the Texans in Week 13, while also notching his... Read More

If you read this article for Week 13 and put your playoff hopes on the line with one of my suggested streams, you were rewarded with big days! Ryan Fitzpatrick had one of the best games of his career with 390 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Meanwhile Alex Smith had a very typical... Read More
