Darius Slayton: A Giant Success

Keep Stashing Running Backs the Right Way

Hells to the yeah, my fellow #AllBenchRB truthers. For those of you who don’t know what #AllBenchRB is, let me give you a short recap before I get to the goods. #AllBenchRB is a strategy I’ve coined where you fill your bench with, as the name implies, only RBs. Or at least as many running... Read More

Dealing For The Future: Prime Dynasty League Trade Targets

It has not been a successful and exciting fantasy football season for everyone. If you have six losses in a league that has 13 regular season weeks, you likely must win out to make the playoffs. In dynasty leagues, one more defeat and you are looking at building for next season. Some owners with two... Read More

Fantasy Football Rookies to Watch - Darius Slayton, Alexander Mattison, Ryan Finley

By Week 10 of the NFL season, it almost feels a bit disingenuous to still refer to first-year players "rookies." After all, most of them have seen plenty of on-field action at this point. But hey, the term is still technically accurate and therefore will continue to be used in this column. Just know, for... Read More

Fantasy Running Back Failures - Joe Mixon, Damien Williams, David Montgomery

The running back remains the most coveted player in fantasy football. In the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC), nine of the first 14 players drafted on average were running backs. In most leagues, you must start at least two RBs, and you can start a third at a flex spot. The position is regarded as... Read More

Fantasy Football Rookies to Watch - Diontae Johnson, Mecole Hardman, Preston Williams

It's Week 8 of the 2019 fantasy football season, Rotoballers. And what a ride it's been. We've watched some rookies blossom right before our very eyes, while others have remained trapped in their cocoons. And that's okay. Some players catch on and adjust to NFL game speed faster than others. Just because they haven't broken... Read More

Rookie Running Back Progress Report

We're basically a quarter of the way into the NFL season (unless you're a Jets or 49ers fan, in which case your team isn't 25 percent done with football). The quarter mark is an interesting time, because we don't really have enough of a sample size to make real judgments about players yet, but we have enough of...

Daniel Jones Erupts (That's Nice, Now Do It Again)

It has been a whirlwind six-month run for Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones.

Breaking Down the New Crop of Young Quarterbacks

We're entering the third week of the 2019 regular season. Heck, teams are just one-eighth through their seasons. But we've already seen--or will see--as many as eight new players unexpectedly taking on starting quarterback duties! All of them came into 2019 with a backup role attached to their name. Be it because of injury (Drew... Read More

Time to Pounce on David Montgomery

Heading into the 2019 season, there were a few rookie names that fantasy owners were interested in.

Rookie Receiver Breakouts from Week 1: Trust or Bust?

Rookie wide receivers are generally hard to trust in fantasy football. Last year’s class, for example, did not produce any regular fantasy starters, although players such as Calvin Ridley, D.J. Moore, Dante Pettis, Christian Kirk and Michael Gallup all showed some promise. Ridley was the best of the bunch with 64 catches for 821 yards... Read More

Stop That Hype Train! Darrell Henderson

Rookie running back Darrell Henderson was a force to be reckoned with during his career at Memphis. He holds the NCAA Division I record for yards per rush with 8.2. You could argue that he's literally the most dangerous ball-carrier in NCAA history and the numbers back it up. It wasn't like he was doing this in... Read More
