The Tape Tells All - Christian Kirk Fantasy Analysis

Fantasy Football Risers and Fallers - Darius Slayton, Christian Kirk, Kareem Hunt

Whether due to their own play, the play of others, or injuries, players' stock increases and decreases on a weekly basis. Perhaps more than any other, the NFL is a league that experiences ups and downs at a rapid pace.

Deeper League Free Agent Pickups for Week 11

Rotoballers, if you're not active on the waiver wire this time of year, there are only two reasonable explanations: 1) You're sitting at 3-7 (or worse) and don't find it enjoyable to play spoiler to your league mates, or 2) You're 8-2 (or better) and have nothing but matchup-proof studs on your starting lineup and...

Week 10 Surprises? We Must Overreact Immediately!

In Week 10, Christian Kirk, Darius Slayton, Tyreek Hill, and Michael Thomas all had beatable cornerback matchups and finished as the top-four wide receivers in PPR scoring. At running back, Derrick Henry exploited a poor Chiefs run defense and rumbled for 188 yards and two touchdowns, finishing as the No. 1 running back on the week. Ronald... 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

There Are Some New Starting Quarterbacks. Does It Matter?

This was supposed to be the year of the quarterback.

Buys and Sells - The King's Trade Targets for Week 10
