Jason Katz's Bold Predictions - 2019 Fantasy Football

In my group of friends, I am known for making outlandish claims that, most of the time, even I don't believe. It antagonizes the hell out of them because they know I'm just complaining about how LeSean McCoy is going to finish with zero touchdowns because I'm annoyed it's Week 3 and he hasn't scored...

Running backs don’t matter. This may or may not be true in the real NFL but in fantasy, it surely isn’t the case. If it were the case, why are the top four consensus players all at the position? It is always great to have one of the top guys at the position. But if... Read More

Navigating Late-Round Tight Ends

When should I draft a tight end? This is one of the questions in fantasy football that gets the biggest split of answers. There is the clear cut tier of Travis Kelce (who you could argue is in a tier of his own), Zach Ertz and George Kittle, but their ADPs are high. With all... Read More

How to Approach the Patriots Backfield in 2019

Success for a running back in fantasy football is largely about volume. Workhorse backs who dominate snaps are ideal, committees who rotate depending on the game script are a problem. Less certain backfields start to become much more prevalent in the middle rounds and beyond in fantasy drafts, and deciding how to approach each one... Read More

Top Running Back Targets for Zero RB Drafters

Zero RB discussion comes and goes every season, it certainly works in theory. Running backs are injured more often than wide receivers, and that means you are better to spend your high draft capital on elite wide receiver talent, then pick up your running backs later (try and pick several to give you more opportunity...
