Way Too Early 2017 Breakouts - Quarterback

The 2016 season is but a faint memory, and the 2017 season seems ages away. We've yet to go through the NFL combine, let alone the draft. Absent those distractions, this seems like a perfect time to consider which quarterbacks could have breakout campaigns. Unlike the running back position, the QB position is generally quite...

Now that we've discussed breakout candidates at both running back and wide receiver, it's time to take a gander at the tight end position. Anyone who has played fantasy over the last three seasons will tell you how inconsistent tight ends are. Basically, if you don't end up with a stud, you're playing the touchdown game every week....

There is now no doubt that the NFL is a pass-first league. Need proof? How many fantasy owners predicted Pierre Garcon, Tyrell Williams, Mike Wallace and Kenny Britt would all break the 1,000-yard barrier this past year?  It is possible that none of the foursome were drafted in many, if not most fantasy leagues in...

NFL rookies have it easy. OK, well, maybe not easy. But their first-season struggles are typically chalked up to the difficult transition from the college ranks to the pros. There's no such mercy in Year No. 2, when the struggles get labeled as the dreaded sophomore slump. Sophomore slumps extend beyond just the player's on-field... Read More

If you caught my last piece on breakout running backs, then you're just as starved as the rest of us. Sometimes I think the weeks in between the Conference Championships and the Super Bowl are harder to get through than the dog days of late February. Our fantasy successes and disappointments are way too fresh in our... Read More

We study. We plan. We scour the web. Before any fantasy football season starts, we do everything we can to make our best predictions. Despite our best efforts, we're often surprised by what actually happens. Let's take a look at some of the more surprising wide receiver performances of 2016. Understanding what happened will help...

2016 was not a banner year for tight ends, it was a bummer year. Only two (Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen) cracked the 1,000-yard plateau after four had done so the previous year. The top dog at the position, New England’s Rob Gronkowski, had his season ruined by another injury. Other top-10 tight ends like Jordan... Read More

Fantasy football is a game of controlling, rather than eliminating surprises. We spend hours trying to predict how each player will perform on any given week. We compare previous performances and delve into stats and data to avoid being surprised every week. Despite our best efforts, however, every week we find ourselves surprised. Whether our...

We're a few days out from the Super Bowl, which means it's not long until the NFL combine. From there it's a hop, skip, and a jump to the NFL draft, and before you know it, we'll be in fantasy football draft season. To make the best plans for 2017, it helps to understand what... Read More

2016 was a season full of surprises at the tight end position. With top fantasy tight end Rob Gronkowski limited to only eight games due to injury and No. 2 tight end Jordan Reed battling his own myriad of injuries throughout the season, fantasy owners who burned early picks at the position were constantly scrambling to find... Read More

The running back position is arguably fantasy football's most volatile. Preseason expectations often go flying out the window once the season begins, and every year sees plenty of surprises, both good and bad. That never stops us from trying to make sense of what happened, with an eye toward making better prognostications next time around.... Read More

Going into 2016, I wrote an article where I went over how zero-WR is dumb and zero-RB is a ray of sunlight and truth. I was half right. 2016 was not the year to do the "Zero RB" game and hope to win your fantasy league. (OK Jordan Howard and Jay Ajayi owners, stop tweeting... Read More

Everyone seems to have a different definition for what makes a fantasy football "sleeper." For some, it's simply a player they expect to greatly exceed expectations based on their draft position. For others, sleepers are more like unknown commodities - deeper under the radar than mere value picks. For example, Cam Newton and Russell Wilson currently... Read More

This year's Super Bowl hasn't even happened yet but that doesn't mean we're not still starving for more fantasy. The best way to satiate that craving is to get a head start on prepping for 2017. With running back being the most fluid position of them all, it's probably the best place to start. Obviously these... Read More

2016 wasn't exactly an exciting year for traditional rookie storylines. Unlike the emergence of Odell Beckham Jr. via one-handed grab in 2014, or the dominant arrival of guys like Amari Cooper last year. Ultimately, 2016 revealed no red carpet for the heir to the throne (though one rookie made a pretty dominant case.) Unlike the... Read More
