Zero RB discussion seems to rear its head every season. It can be an effective strategy, depending on when you are picking in your draft. However, there is another school of thought and that is Zero WR. While going into any draft with a pre-ordained strategy will lead to mistakes being made in your draft,... Read More

ADP Showdown - T.Y. Hilton vs Adam Thielen

Aside from the running back position, receivers are next on the totem pole of importance in fantasy drafts.

Todd Gurley - A Definitive Outlook for 2019

Todd Gurley's knee has become more than a matter of concern - it's an enigma. Despite being fantasy's number one overall player for each of the past two seasons, Gurley's stock is sinking quicker than the Titanic. He's reportedly developed arthritis in his surgically-repaired knee. It may or may not have affected his performance and... Read More

Rookie Roulette - Which TE Should Go First in Rookie Drafts?

Noah Fant, tight end out of Iowa. T.J. Hockenson, tight end out of Iowa. Yes, one of these two former Hawkeyes should be the first tight end taken in rookie drafts this year.

Rookie Roulette - Which QB Goes After Kyler Murray in Dynasty Drafts?

Asking the question "which first-year quarterback should go first in rookie drafts" is, basically, a bad question. You don't need to read a 1000 word piece from me about why to pick Kyler Murray over the other quarterbacks in this class. No way. Kyler should be the first quarterback off the board in 100 percent... Read More

Le'Veon Bell - Still a Fantasy First-Rounder?

We are largely in uncharted territory when it comes to Le'Veon Bell. If there has been a previous instance of an elite player sitting out a full season and changing teams, I'm not aware of it. We last saw Bell play football in 2017. As a Steeler, Bell benefited from one of the league's best offensive... Read More

Rookie Roulette - Which First-Year RB is #1 in Rookie Drafts?

This year's rookie class didn't feature an undisputed 1.01 player like 2018 did with Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, who was a unique talent who led to people selling their entire dynasty teams and possibly their firstborn child to draft him. That paid off, but this year doesn't feature someone you should go all... Read More

Who's #1 in Redraft Leagues?

You want the first overall pick in your draft. Even if you think you don't, you do. Historical data supports that the higher you pick, the more likely you are to win. Sometimes, having the first overall pick makes things easy. In 2017, David Johnson was the obvious top pick. In 2015 and 2013, it... Read More

Start of a Dynasty - Expert Mock Draft Review

I’ll be honest, playing re-draft leagues for years can give an avid fantasy footballer tunnel-vision. You tend to look for the immediate impact of a player.
