You're either firmly in the camp of waiting during drafts, snagging one or two of the late round fliers, or you want one of the top-five guys to solidify a spot on your roster. Whatever your go-to strategy is, one thing has remained... Read More

Was Drafting Ezekiel Elliott in the First Round Good Process or Just Good Results?

It seems like every single year there's some rookie running back who fantasy owners fall in love with.

The Wide Receiver Height Argument Needs To Be Left For Dead

Right before the NFL draft, the same old schtick about player heights will come up. It's not even just height. It's hand size, weight, and every other cockamamie measurable they can come up with.

Five Redraft Studs Who Will be Dynasty Duds
