Three Ways You're Screwing Up Zero RB... and How To Fix Them

In 2016 Zero RB was the dominant draft strategy for most fantasy football players. For many drafters the strategy fell flat on it's face and they gave up on it after one try. The strategy itself is sound, and even in the outlier running back year of 2016 it was still successful. The issue is most drafters... Read More

Pay Up! - Auction Draft Strategies

I did my first auction draft back in 2010. It was an unmitigated disaster. I had gone into the draft very familiar with player values and I refused to overspend.

Why Zero-RB Still Won't Work in 2017

When embarking on my reasoning for this piece, I was having difficulty explaining exactly why zero running back won’t work this season.

Let the Kids Play - Why You Should Pick Rookie RBs Over Vets in 2017

Stack 'Em - Teams with Favorable Schedules for their Top Players

Playing matchups is certainly a sound strategy for maximizing fantasy football value on a week-to-week basis.

Why Zero RB Will Work in 2017

When Shawn Siegele published "Zero RB, Antifragility, and the Myth of Value-Based Drafting" in 2013, he brought Zero RB to the mainstream. It took a few years to really catch on, but entering 2016 fantasy football drafts Zero RB was all the rage. Many players ignored running backs in the early rounds and stock-piled wide... Read More

Why Zero RB Didn't Work in 2016

Zero-running back as a strategy and theory is nothing new. However, it has come into vogue over the past few seasons and hit a fever pitch heading into the 2016 season thanks to a disastrous 2015 for some of the top-drafted running backs such as Todd Gurley and Doug Martin. The strategy didn’t pay off,... Read More

Was Drafting Rob Gronkowski in the First Round Bad Process or Just Bad Results?

Tight end is probably the most divisive position in all of fantasy football.

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.
