As fantasy football gets bigger, and access to information comes easier, sometimes you have to zig when everyone else zags. When you combine the depth at running back, and the level of success of the top wide receivers, 2018 is a prime year for the "Zero RB" strategy. They might say you need to take... Read More

RotoBaller fantasy football lead editor Pierre Camus (@pfunk00) and writer Chris Mangano (@ChrisMangano) explain how the Zero RB strategy really works in fantasy football drafts and which mid-round running backs to target if you truly commit to it. This radio show is sponsored by our good friends over at FanPicks. Be sure to tune into RotoBaller Radio on SiriusXM (channel... Read More

For someone drafting 8th in a 10-man league last year, going Zero-RB could have potentially netted them a top-three round haul of Mike Evans, Jordy Nelson, and Demaryius Thomas. On draft day, this is an amazing stack of WR1s. By the end of the year, it's weekly middling to poor performances that the owners' highest draft... Read More

Two weeks ago I brought you my first installment of late-round running backs to target if you choose to go ZeroRB in your drafts this year. With two preseason games in the books, and more information, things have changed in the running back landscape and I am giving my first update. This article will cover... Read More

In part one, I identified mid-round values at the RB position. Now it's time to dig even deeper. With running backs flying off the board at an insane clip this year, typically 8-10 are taken in the first round alone, elite wide receivers are being drafted at a big discount. This is the exact type... Read More

With running backs flying off the board at an insane clip this year, typically 8-10 are taken in the first round alone, elite wide receivers are being drafted at a big discount. This is the exact type of “economy” a ZeroRB drafter thrives in. Grab elite WR1 and WR2 types in the early rounds while... Read More

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

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

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...

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

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

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

In today's draft strategy piece, we are going to take a look at what do if you have a sense that the majority of your league is going to use a Zero RB strategy. In case you aren't familiar with Zero RB, it is a strategy where the drafter selects wide receivers in the first... Read More

There are plenty of strategies that get thrown around in fantasy football war rooms, with terms like “zero-RB” or “late-round QB” becoming household phrases over the past few seasons. What do those mean though? And what should they mean to you entering the 2016 season? Let's find out. Editor's Note: Purchase a full season NFL Premium... Read More
