RB Opportunity Share and Impact (AFC East & North): 2019 Review

Who's #1 in Redraft Leagues for 2018?

Every year, there is a consensus #1 overall pick in fantasy football. The consensus varies in strength, but there's usually a guy the majority of the fantasy community agrees should go first.

As a dynasty owner preparing for your upcoming rookie draft, the top of your board is probably not littered with tight ends.

Born to Run - Starting RB/RB in Fantasy Football Drafts

Way back when I first started playing this wonderful game, this type of article would be superfluous. Obviously you should go RB/RB if you can. That was back in 2003 and for much of the 2000s, there was little debate over the optimal strategy - if you could get two quality RBs in the first... Read More

Wide receivers are a staple of NFL teams and fantasy rosters, with their ability to generate yards through the air a major factor for the success of the majority of NFL teams.

Carson Wentz - How Soon is Too Soon in Redraft?

RB Target Leaders - Finding PPR Value with your RB2/Flex

The running back position remains firmly entrenched at the pinnacle of importance within our fantasy landscape, and one of the contributing factors has been the increased usage of backs as receiving weapons.

Trusting Rookie Wide Receivers in Redraft Leagues

If I had to list one mistake most commonly made by fantasy owners on draft day, it would be recency bias. We've seen it time and time again - owners overreacting to what happened the previous year even when it was so clearly an outlier. The QB boom of 2011. The rookie WR boom of 2014.... Read More
