RotoBaller's Early 2018 Redraft Football Mock - Rounds 2-3

It's been a minute (figuratively speaking) since we started this mock draft, and many moves have been made on the free agent market over the last couple of weeks. Then there's the Cleveland Browns, who threw everything into chaos on one March day. With the NFL Draft still weeks away and many cuts, signings, and... Read More

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. Last season, 14 different backs collected over 50 receptions, while eight caught 60+. This represented a notable rise from 2016, when 11 runners... Read More

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

RotoBaller's Early 2018 Redraft Football Mock - Round 1

The great thing about playing your favorite game with true fantasy degenerates is that there is never an "off" time for the game.

Early Dynasty Startup Mock Draft - Round 1

Here at Rotoballer, it’s never too early for a football mock draft!

Dynasty football never ends, so we’re here to provide you... Read More

Red Zone Target Hogs and Potential Sleepers for 2018 Fantasy Football

Say Goodbye to "Your Guys" - Trade to Win in Week 8

Trading is hard. People looooove their guys and love big names. The tendency is for us to evaluate players based on potential over reality. “Wait, you want to trade who for LeSean McCoy? He was the RB4 last year!” “Julio is still a target monster and will finish with eight TD!” Other common responses include... Read More

Going Extreme with All Bench RB in Week 7

Zero RB is a widely discussed strategy that I happen to buy into.  I love the WR position and don’t enjoy the injury risk at RB, therefore avoiding the use of my high draft capital on the position.

Passing On Passers - A Case For Drafting Your QB1 Late

You hear it every year: wait, wait, wait, and wait some more on quarterback. It's arguably the most common fantasy strategy out there these days.

The Running Back Handcuff Hedge - Who To Handcuff

We have learned over time that the running back position is without question the most volatile in fantasy football. This understanding is based upon the percentage of injuries versus the other skilled positions, NFL teams increasingly using split back committees, and also takes into account weekly fantasy scoring consistency. Along with this natural order of chaos,... Read More
