Late-Round Wide Receivers - ADP Draft Values

A general discussion of strategy seems like as good a preface as any for this topic. There’s something to be said for predictability in fantasy football.

Hey RotoBallers!

Running Backs You Must Own in 2017 - Late-Round ADP Values

Hey RotoBallers! Sadly, I've been so busy writing about and playing fantasy baseball that football research has been put on the back burner. How dare I!

Sleeper Defenses for the 2017 Fantasy Football Season

It is exceedingly difficult to predict how defenses will fare over the course of the season. In 2016, half of the preseason top 12 fantasy defenses failed to finish top-12. Some of them didn't even come close. Others that were ranked highly barely stayed in the group. There are very few defenses that I consider... Read More

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, TB) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

Who would have thought that Jacquizz Rodgers could go from scatback to sleeper in less than a year's time? All fantasy football eyes have been on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the preseason to see how the Bucs are going to use the tight end tandem of Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard and how newly-acquired... Read More

Terrance West (RB, BAL) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

Running back sleepers can be especially volatile as far as predicting how successful they can be. Drafting a lesser known fantasy commodity within the first ten rounds of your draft requires that the runner have both a relatively safe floor and higher ceiling so as to be worth the investment. One of the ideal running... Read More

Kenny Britt (WR, CLE) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

My original plan for this intro was going to be a game of "which of these things is not like the other." Then I quickly realized the answer would have been obvious considering the name Kenny Britt is in the title of the article. So let's try something else. Let's see if you can pick... Read More

Undervalued Quarterbacks - 2017 Draft Targets

After writing an article about my three overvalued quarterbacks for the 2017 fantasy football season, I’m about ready to shift my tone and give owners some promising advice about which quarterbacks you can expect to pay dividends as either a great draft value or noteworthy sleeper. I will be using average draft position (ADP) and... Read More

Five Running Back Sleepers and Values for 2017 Drafts

Every fantasy owner and their grandmother has an opinion on who's a "sleeper." It's basically become more of a buzzword than an actual guideline at this point. Part of the problem with that is that everyone uses a different definition of what a "sleeper" even is. Is it someone you're willing to reach for? Someone you... Read More

Five Tight End Sleepers for 2017 Fantasy Football

Tight end has become one of the more difficult variables to grapple with in fantasy football drafts. What was once the most consistently easy position to project and rank has devolved into a bit of a mess.

Undervalued Running Backs - PPR Draft Targets

Every year, after the fantasy season has ended and players championship hopes have been dashed, we look back and say "How did we not realize player x would be so good?"

While fantasy owners make look for upside and risk/reward options in the later rounds, it's important to hit on those mid-round picks. This piece analyzes five reliable options likely to come off the board in rounds 6-10.

Boom or Bust - Three Player Predictions for WR

Infrequently does something equate to the feeling of having a late round sleeper pay off tremendously for your fantasy team. In similar fashion, nothing is more devastating than investing a top 30 pick on a player who underperforms consistently on a week by week basis. There’s no denying the value of running backs in fantasy... Read More

Four Bold Predictions for the 2017 Season

Now that the NFL season is nearly here, it's time to put away our spreadsheets and calculators, and let's rip a few bold predictions. I think that in order to be considered bold, a prediction has to be unlikely, so I'm not expecting a great success rate here. On the other hand, these aren't ridiculous... Read More

Kareem Hunt (RB, KC) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

The running back position is one of the most important positions on a fantasy football team. Since most teams are going with a two back set of recent years, it is more difficult to find running back gems later on in the draft. There are only a handful of three-down running backs in the beginning... Read More

Late-Round Lottery Tickets to Target in Fantasy Drafts

My dreams of playing in a mega-high stakes (jelly beans, of course) fantasy league were crushed when I didn't win the Powerball jackpot. My guess is you aren't that one lucky soul who won either so here you are slumming it with the rest of us. That's ok though, there's always the fantasy lottery. Besides,... Read More

Kenny Golladay (WR, DET) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

From a fantasy football aspect, the name Kenny Golladay might not mean much as you wade through which wide receivers will help catapult your team into the playoffs.

Kirk Cousins Still Underrated? I Like That

Heading into the 2016 fantasy season, there was a general reluctance within the fantasy community to treat Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins as a fixture inside the top 10 ranks among signal callers. Through his first six games in 2015, he had thrown just six TD passes to go with eight interceptions, including four multi-turnover... Read More

Deshaun Watson (QB, HOU) - 2017 Fantasy Football Sleeper

Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes may have been drafted higher in the first round this past April, but Houston’s Deshaun Watson might become the biggest fantasy sleeper and the most productive quarterback out of the rookie trio by the time the 2017 season concludes. The last time most football fans saw Watson... Read More
