The other issue when looking...continue reading

NFL Preseason Week 3 Review - Fantasy Impact

Week 3 of the NFL preseason is typically a dress rehearsal for teams and we get the best idea yet of how players will be used. While some NFL teams still chose to rest their starters, many inexplicably didn't. Unfortunately, we also had a major injury with Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee going down for the season with a major knee injury. Thankfully, the injury report isn't too long overall this week as...continue reading

Under-the-Radar Route Runners To Target Late

Often times, what draws spectators and fantasy enthusiasts to a wide receiver is their size, their speed, their ability to reach over defenders and snatch balls out of the air, and their ability to score touchdowns. That’s all well and good, but rarely do we look at what makes a wide receiver truly special – their ability to run routes.   Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney once said the wide receiver position...continue reading

Five Wide Receiver ADP Draft Values

As the NFL season approaches, and leagues begin to host their fantasy drafts, we have a pretty good idea of where most players will be drafted.

Today, I present five receivers that are being drafted way too low considering what they are likely to give their fantasy owners this year. Once...continue reading

Which Rams Receiver is Most Valuable at Their ADP?

The Rams receivers were almost impossible to predict going into last season. The first four guys on the depth chart didn't play for the team in 2016, their quarterback hadn't won a game in the NFL, and their new coach ran an offensive system that got all kinds of people touches. Many expected the newly acquired Sammy Watkins to lead the way in the passing game, but Watkins found himself being a...continue reading

Could Tavon Austin Be Zeke's Kryptonite in PPR?

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott could be the top overall player in fantasy football in 2018. In fact, I had this notion throughout the offseason that he would be utilized more in the passing game and parlay his league-leading rushing yard-per-game average into an overall RB1 finish. But I'm taking it back. Dez Bryant is out of the Big D and the team is left without a true #1 receiver. Elliott...continue reading

2018 Fantasy Football Rankings Analysis - Wide Receivers (Standard)

The pass-happy NFL was not as receiver-friendly in 2017 as it was the year before. Running the ball made a comeback this past season, as did spreading the ball around to many different pass catchers instead of zoning in one guy all the time. 24 wide receivers broke the 1,000-yard barrier in 2016, compared to only 13 in 2017. Guys like Mike Wallace, Kenny Britt, ...continue reading
