Boom or Bust - Tight End Projections for 2017

Right now, there seem to be three names floating around whenever people talk about who the top fantasy tight ends will be: Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce, and Jordan Reed. Here's the problem with that: two of those three players tend to...umm...miss a lot of games. I really hate the idea of labeling a player as... Read More

Fantasy football draft season is upon us and RotoBaller is here to help! In this series, two RotoBaller experts will discuss the merits of two players with similar value and average draft position (ADP). Remember that situations will change for all players over the course of the summer and it may impact where they are selected in...

You're on the clock. The timer's ticking. You're torn between two players. Who do you take? That's the question we'll debate in this player vs. player series. In this article, Charlie Kleinheksel advocates for Stefon Diggs (ADP 5.08) and Pierre Camus will make the case for DeVante Parker (ADP 6.01) in dynasty startup formats. Fantasy football... Read More

The 2017 NFL Draft’s running back class was one of the most highly touted in recent memory. With eight players being drafted in the first three rounds, this class has a robust investment and is very likely to generate a number of immediate impact players. My aim in this article is to convince you that... Read More

When embarking on my reasoning for this piece, I was having difficulty explaining exactly why zero running back won’t work this season. For some inspiration and hope to clear writer’s block, I read Shawn Siegle’s initial articles explaining the theory of zero running back and listened to the recent Numberfire podcast on which Siegle was... Read More

Football fans know which quarterback was taken first in this year’s NFL Draft, but now fantasy football owners want to know which QB should go first in dynasty drafts. The 2017 rookie quarterback crop is not loaded with any sure starters for this season, but there are plenty of potential passers for future seasons. Many... Read More

Playing matchups is certainly a sound strategy for maximizing fantasy football value on a week-to-week basis. You can also turn a pretty profit in Daily Fantasy cash games and tournaments by stacking two or more players on the same team versus weaker opponents. One thing to remember is that defensive rankings will change quite a bit... Read More

In the first part of my Zero RB analysis, I discussed why Zero RB will be a winning strategy in 2017 and why the value of running backs league-wide is headed for regression. In this article, I will discuss some of my favorite Zero RB targets for fantasy football leagues this season. The Zero RB strategy... Read More

The phrase "running back by committee" (RBBC) has kept many a fantasy owner awake in the wee hours of the night. You can do the player research, read practice notes, watch coach interviews, and much more, only to have a player who seemed destined for 10-15 touches sit on the bench for the majority of the game. The... Read More

With the NFL evolving into more of a pass-heavy league with each passing year, the amount of big-time, bell-cow running backs are shrinking. However, the ones that remain are continuing to put up extremely helpful rushing and receiving totals, with a plentiful amount of touchdowns. Players like David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, and Ezekiel Elliott are... Read More

Running back committees are essentially the kiss of death for fantasy production. The unpredictability of who gets touches when is enough to drive an owner to a hair-pulling hissy fit. And that's just for the teams we can even identify as even having a committee in the first place. Considering that we haven't hit the preseason... Read More

When Shawn Siegele published "Zero RB, Antifragility, and the Myth of Value-Based Drafting" in 2013, he brought Zero RB to the mainstream. It took a few years to really catch on, but entering 2016 fantasy football drafts Zero RB was all the rage. Many players ignored running backs in the early rounds and stock-piled wide... Read More

Tonight's contest is a Fatal Four Way match and it is for the right to be selected number one in 2017 fantasy football drafts. This match will be contested under PPR rules and will be no disqualification! Last year's top consensus pick is back to stake a claim for a repeat, but he'll have stiff competition... Read More

For those unfamiliar with the Scott Fish Bowl a.k.a. FF Invitational, let me explain what makes this format unique. First of all, the competition consists of 720 teams with 60 leagues of 12 teams. The roster consists of 22 total players under the following lineup conditions: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 4 Flex... Read More

The Wisdom of Crowds is a concept theorized by philosopher Francis Galton, who observed at a county fair in 1906 a group of over 800 people guessing the weight of an ox that was on display. While the majority of people were off by a fair amount, the median guess was 1208 pounds, less than... Read More

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

As with any draft, mock or not, the later you get the more surprises you find. RotoBaller’s 2017 Rookie Mock Draft was no exception.

Wide receiver is the premiere fantasy football position, so figuring out which WR are likely to produce at a high level is an important endeavor. One factor that could affect WR performance is quarterback play. Should we worry about receivers who are stuck with weak QBs? What if the WR or QB changes teams? Should we... Read More

In this article, I'll lay out the second part of my draft strategy for the ideal slot in order to maximize fantasy potential in MFL10 leagues. The foundation was laid in the first part of this draft with two upper-echelon running backs, a trio of high-ceiling receivers, and pair of San Diego Los Angeles Chargers at QB and...

The MFL10 season is in full swing already and we will be looking at early ADP values throughout the spring and summer. After two... Read More

MFL10 leagues bring a unique spin to the fantasy football draft process. Therefore, it should take some unique preparation as well. Risk/reward is the name of the game in best-ball formats. You need to find players with high ceilings without incurring too many risks that could potentially sink your team. In this article, I'll lay out... Read More

There has been movement at the tight end position this offseason that could have serious fantasy implications for the 2017 season, as a few tight ends saw their stock increase based on their respective landing spots. Expectations should always be tempered for tight ends, but the offseason movement has created some additional value picks at... Read More

Tight end is probably the most divisive position in all of fantasy football. 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
