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

Mock Draft Recap - Early ADP Reaches/Busts/Fallers

The Rotoballer crew recently finished up an early mock draft. As with every draft, there are going to be instances of guys going too early or too late. This is all about those guys that we got a little too overzealous on when we grabbed them. You could have got them in the next round... 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

Dynasty Stock Watch - Tight Ends

The New York Stock Exchange is not the only place where people care a lot about whose stock is skyrocketing and whose is plummeting.

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. In Dynasty leagues, you have to have a different mindset (except for Frank Gore who’ll play for another 10 years with at least 200 touches each time). Just after... Read More

Rookie Mock Draft Recap - What the Experts Were Thinking

Just after the NFL Draft finished up, we assembled our fantasy football dynasty writers for a rookie mock draft. This was a 10-team draft that went eight rounds (because we're fiends).

Rookie Wide Receivers Set to Make a Splash in 2019

The 2019 NFL Draft saw 28 wide receivers find homes with NFL teams. A handful others were added as undrafted free agents.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - New Orleans Saints

Coming off of one of the most excruciating losses in NFL playoff history, the Saints will be looking ahead for another chance at a title in 2019.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Dallas Cowboys

The 2018 season for the Dallas Cowboys saw another trip to the postseason only to end in an embarrassing loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Chicago Bears

The first year under Matt Nagy led to a playoff berth for the Chicago Bears. The team rode a fantastic defense to wins while the progression of second-year QB Mitchell Trubisky didn't go as smoothly as hoped. His overall production was good but not great (3,223 yards and 27 total TDs). He continued to heavily... Read More

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - New England Patriots

The 2018 season ended with yet another Super Bowl victory for the New England Patriots. On the way to that win, we saw a few more cracks in the armor than we are accustomed to. Tom Brady's key statistics all regressed last year. His passing yardage (4,355) and touchdowns (29) were both down. While his... Read More

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Kansas City Chiefs

What a difference a quarterback makes. Second-year QB Patrick Mahomes became the Chiefs starter and immediately made this team into a force in fantasy football. The excitement that he brings to the game goes without saying. His season was one of the best in league history (5.097 yards and 52 total TDs). He was a... Read More

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Los Angeles Rams

Even though the Rams' season ended in a disappointing Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, this team enjoyed a fruitful 2019.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Los Angeles Chargers

Lost in all the hoopla of the season put together by the Kansas City Chiefs was yet another solid year from Philip Rivers and the Chargers.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck returned to the Colts lineup in 2018 and immediately increased the value of numerous players on this offense. The biggest contributors of his QB5 finish (4,593 yards and 39 TDs) were T.Y. Hilton and often ridiculed Eric Ebron. Hilton was back to his old ways as a weekly starter with consistent production while... Read More

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Baltimore Ravens

Big changes hit the Baltimore Ravens mid-season in 2018. The switch at quarterback from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson was appropriately timed and sent this team to the playoffs.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Seattle Seahawks

Given the talent on the roster, the Seattle Seahawks actually overachieved in 2018.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Pittsburgh Steelers

The 2018 season was one of discord for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one that played out for all eyes to see.

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Tennessee Titans

After a late surge to make the playoffs in 2017, the 2018 season was a lost one for the Titans. The "franchise" quarterback, Marcus Mariota, had an extremely subpar year.
