Keep Stashing Running Backs the Right Way

Draft Recap - RotoBaller's Staff League on Fleaflicker

Hey there from Brett Mitchell (aka AllBenchRB). This is my first year in the RotoBaller Experts staff league (7th year running) - and with that comes great excitement to participate, compete and analyze the draft. I’ll make a few key observations before I get into the thick of it. This was a very fast draft and... Read More

Stack 'Em - Players With Favorable Fantasy Schedules

Rooting for a team is great. It is what fuels fandom, and sports in general. And it is why some times we opt to draft one of our favorite team's players instead of another guy. Look at your team at the end of your draft and it wouldn't be weird to find some homer-picks in... Read More

Late-Round Wide Receivers Who Will Outperform Their ADP

When we put on the task of building our fantasy football teams we have to take into account the importance of "position scarcity". That now-famous term applies to all fantasy football positions to some degree, although its impact varies wildly among them. There are not many tight ends considered elite (as fewer as three are...

Many of you are familiar with best-ball leagues. You draft a full squad, then sit back and watch your optimal lineup each week accumulate points.

Why Zero RB Will Work In 2019

James Conner, Phillip Lindsay, Damien Williams, Gus Edwards, Austin Ekeler. In the final month of the 2018 fantasy season, these five running backs were regularly ranking amongst the top-20 at the position, often as high as top-10 or top-five. One thing they all had in common: None of them even sniffed the top 100 preseason rankings... Read More

Late-Round Running Backs Who Will Outperform Their ADP

No matter what the masses say about the running game, it will always be an attractive part of football. The explosive, raw bursts that tailbacks showcase each time they're handed the ball by their quarterback has no equal in football. Some times the runs can end at the line of scrimmage, but if the rusher... Read More

Passing on Passers - A Case For Drafting Your QB1 Late

We all know that Patrick Mahomes, in his second season as an NFL player and his first as a full-time starter, broke a record set in 2013 by the very own Peyton Manning.

Observations From My First FFPC Draft

I've always considered myself to be really good at the waiver wire, which is part of the reason why I've avoided doing any Best Ball leagues until this year unless you count the three-person one I did for fun last year with my wife and one of our friends. But if you want to evolve... Read More

Best Late-Round Tight End Picks If You're Punting the Position

Perhaps more than any other time in recent history, punting the tight end position in the draft seems like an optimal strategy. While it's never good to lock yourself into a strategy before your draft even starts, the obscene amount of buried treasure waiting to be scooped up in the later rounds makes the idea... Read More

Houston Texans Revamp Roster - Fantasy Impact

No team was busier on Saturday than the Houston Texans, who swung four trades on the day that rosters had to be cut down to 53.

Preseason Depth Chart Risers and Fallers

Every year, we see different players move up and down in the depth charts before the season starts. Even during the season, we see players rise and fall on the depth chart.

Dominick Petrillo's 2019 Blind Dart Throws

I have never been a huge fan of spicy food. So, instead of spicy takes, I am going to compare my bold predictions to throwing blindly at a dartboard and hoping for a few bullseyes.
