BALLER MOVE: Target ~145 CURRENT ADP: ~155 ANALYSIS: Do you like Saquon Barkley? What about Odell Beckham Jr.? Evan Engram? All of those players are being drafted at sixth or higher at their positions, yet Manning is currently the 21st quarterback off thecontinue reading...

Chris Ivory (RB, BUF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: It’s always tough to deal with legal situations in fantasy football, especially since the NFL has proven to be inconsistent with its punitive measures regarding domestic violence situations in the past.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~220 CURRENT ADP: ~230 ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor fell flat on his face during his only season in Washington.

2018 Fantasy Sleeper: Mike Gesicki (TE, MIA)

BALLER MOVE: Target ~170 CURRENT ADP: ~185 ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki may be just the rookie tight end to hype, something that is very rare in fantasy football. Even Rob Gronkowski was not a TE1 during his rookie season and it tookcontinue reading...

2018 Fantasy Sleeper: Isaiah Crowell (RB, NYJ)

BALLER MOVE: Target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: The reason last season’s performance was such a let-down for New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell owners is due to the promise that he showed the previous season.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~125 ANALYSIS: With both C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles gone, Denver Broncos third-year running back Devontae Booker will have the early opportunity to take a stranglehold of the lead back duties . In his first two years, hecontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~130 CURRENT ADP: ~145 ANALYSIS: Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay had his hype train run out of control for several weeks prior to last season. It eventually wound down, but it did not stop dynasty owners from trying to add himcontinue reading...

Dak Prescott (QB, DAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~115 CURRENT ADP: ~125 ANALYSIS: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a down year and a lot of owners completely forget that the Cowboys had one of the best offenses just one season ago. In 2016, the Cowboys were fifth in yards percontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 CURRENT ADP: ~140 ANALYSIS: Owners continue to invest in Jay Ajayi and, for the life of us, we will never understand why. Do we continue to chase perceived value from his 2016 season, where 49% of his yards game in three games? Ajayi hascontinue reading...

BALLER MOVE: Target ~25 CURRENT ADP: ~35 ANALYSIS: Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry seemed to be in line for a massive workload in a run-heavy offense with no competition for touches in sight. That all changed when Dion Lewis got PAID. The addition of Lewis doescontinue reading...

Joe Mixon (RB, CIN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~15 CURRENT ADP: ~25 ANALYSIS: This very well could be a breakout year for Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon. The departure of Jeremy Hill reaffirms that Mixon is unquestionably going to be the Week 1 starting running back, barring an injury.continue reading...

Jimmy Graham (TE, GB) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~50 CURRENT ADP: ~60 ANALYSIS: Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham is a known commodity, but is in a position to thrive with a new team. What ultimately pushed makes him a sleeper is what the Packers did in the NFL Draft. Aftercontinue reading...
