Why Zero RB Will Work in 2017

When Shawn Siegele published "Zero RB, Antifragility, and the Myth of Value-Based Drafting" in 2013, he brought Zero RB to the mainstream.

Why Zero RB Didn't Work in 2016

Zero-running back as a strategy and theory is nothing new. However, it has come into vogue over the past few seasons and hit a fever pitch heading into the 2016 season thanks to a disastrous 2015 for some of the top-drafted running backs such as Todd Gurley and Doug Martin. The strategy didn’t pay off,... Read More

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

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. When it comes to wide receivers, height ends up being the one the talking heads focus on most. It makes sense in... Read More

Five Redraft Studs Who Will be Dynasty Duds

For those who have played in a dynasty league, the fundamental difference is that every player and every move needs to be viewed through a long-term lens, whereas in redraft we only care what the players will be doing for the current season.
