As if the NFL playoffs weren't exciting enough, you can assemble a team of your own in the postseason and root... Read More

The regular season is over, but that doesn't mean the fantasy fun stops there. While certainly inferior to full season leagues, playoff fantasy football is still a great way to carry on playing this game that we love and providing us all with a vested interest in each of these playoff games, no matter how...

Zero RB truthers (that’s me) - this article is for you. Did you do the right thing by sticking to your guns after a rough go in 2016? If you were savvy/lucky enough to select the right WRs in the first 4-5 rounds (Antonio Brown, Tyreek Hill, DeAndre Hopkins, Brandin Cooks, Michael Crabtree, Larry Fitzgerald,... Read More

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

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. Today I’d like to discuss a strategy that compliments Zero RB very well but can also apply... Read More

Where there are rules, there are loopholes. There are ways to implement sneaky strategies that could either be viewed as genius or sketchy.  The two questions are: 1) How far are you willing to go to get an advantage in your league?  2) How long can you keep it going until others pick up on...

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 premise is simple; waiting on your QB1 allows you to soak up all of the stronger running backs and wide receivers, ending up with a late round passer who... Read More

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

Depending on when you learned, or were taught, to play fantasy football, you picked up on a certain trend, whether consciously or subconsciously.

In fantasy football, everyone needs a backup plan.

In 2016 Zero RB was the dominant draft strategy for most fantasy football players. For many drafters the strategy fell flat on it's face and they gave up on it after one try. The strategy itself is sound, and even in the outlier running back year of 2016 it was still successful. The issue is most drafters... Read More

I did my first auction draft back in 2010. It was an unmitigated disaster. I had gone into the draft very familiar with player values and I refused to overspend. I ended up with a fantastic team...if you could start every player on a 16-man roster! The All-Value team failed spectacularly because everyone was good,... Read More

The 2017 NFL Draft’s running back class was one of the most highly touted in recent memory.
