NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Denver Broncos Outlook

The winds of change have hit the mile high city. Gone are Vance Joseph and Case Keenum, enter Vic Fangio and Joe Flacco. Flacco seems more like a bridge to the next franchise quarterback rather than a player that Fangio will be hanging his career on. Flacco is obviously on the downside of his career... Read More

NFL Draft 32 for 32 - Detroit Lions Outlook

The first year of the Matt Patricia era for the Detroit Lions did not go exactly as planned.

Get Off My Lawn - Choosing Veteran RBs Over Rookies

After an unprecedented year for rookie running backs, lightning will not strike twice.

To Handcuff or Not to Handcuff at RB?

Handcuffing running backs has been a long-standing practice when it comes to assembling a fantasy team.

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