2018 PPR Mock Draft Review - Rankings vs Reality

Rotoballer's first mock draft of the 2018 fantasy football season is in the books. You may think that our results would closely mirror our own early PPR rankings, but that isn't always the case. There were quite a few surprises, to say the least, as some owners threw the concept of ADP right out the window early on. In this space, I'll compare and contrast our mock draft results with our current rankings to see where...continue reading

2018 Fantasy Football Rankings Analysis - Wide Receivers (Half-PPR)

The last few years has seen a fall from grace for the wide receiver position in fantasy football formats. Due to the changes in offensive structures of teams (more of them spreading the ball around), the list of top wide receivers has become smaller and smaller. However, that does not mean that there are still no elite performers in fantasy football circles. In fact, top level wide receivers still possess the same game-winning production ability that...continue reading

2018 Fantasy Football Rankings Analysis - Wide Receiver (PPR)

RotoBaller's fantasy football rankings for PPR leagues are updated and live! Click here to check out the rankings and get a leg up on the rest of your leaguemates with some early research. Being part of a league with a point per reception (or "PPR") scoring format changes how fantasy owners approach the wide receiver position. With receptions providing a form of safety blanket, certain fantasy wideouts become more stable in terms of fantasy production while...continue reading

PPR Mock Draft Recap - Reaches and Busts

Here at RotoBaller, we just completed a PPR mock draft, which means it's time for me to mock that draft. Welcome to the official roast of the 12 members of our crew who participated. I'm going to comb back over our draft with a fine tooth comb and let you know who made the biggest reaches and who picked the biggest busts. For more analysis of this mock draft, check out our look at the...continue reading

RotoBaller Best-Ball Rankings vs ADP: Finding Values in MFL10

Best ball season is in full swing, and drafts are filling up faster and faster. With the NFL draft over, and the start of the season rapidly approaching, more people are getting the fantasy football "itch." Along with following proper roster construction, getting players at a discount is one of the strategies the most successful best players use, and we're here to help you identify some values throughout the draft. Using out brand new...continue reading

2018 PPR Mock Draft Review: Sleepers

If Rotoballer's first mock draft of the 2018 fantasy football (redraft) season is any indication of what things will look like in August, balance is the operative word. Yet sleepers still lay waiting in the grass. Through three rounds, sixteen running backs and sixteen wide receivers were drafted in the 16-round 12-team PPR draft. Despite the even flow of running backs and wide receivers, there are still some sleepers that slipped through the cracks and could...continue reading

Dynasty Stock Watch for 2018 - Wide Receiver Fallers

Before you read any farther, check out the first part of this series, where I look at five receivers who I think are risers in dynasty right now. Don't worry...I'll wait for you to read that. Alright, welcome back! Now that I've covered some names that you should target, let's talk about five wide receivers whose dynasty outlooks don't look as good. I'm not going to cover some of the obvious names like ...continue reading

Dynasty Stock Watch for 2018: WR Risers

When it comes to dynasty, the season never ends. Sure, that statement has become cliche at this point, but it's also true: a random Thursday in May can become an important dynasty moment because reports emerge that Chris Godwin is going to get more playing time for the Buccaneers. Some people are smiling because they've held onto Godwin for over a year, others are plotting trade offers to get him, and...continue reading

May NFL Mailbag - Running Backs, IDP, Sammy or Amari?

It has been a long time since I have done a mailbag article and I almost forgot how much fun they are. My favorite part about this, are my interactions with you, the reader. I am always open to answering questions on Twitter or Reddit, but most of the time, those are quick response from prior knowledge. Occasionally, I get a question I need to dive into a little more, but you don’t have the same...continue reading

Rookie ADP Arbitrage - Wide Receiver

Rookie drafts in dynasty leagues are underway across the nation and as always, we're here to help. With a mix of new, unproven rookie players at each position joining veterans who vary in age and fantasy production, it is no easy task to decide which players to take during your drafts. We've already covered quarterback and running back, so now it's time for the glamour position, wide receiver! Wide receivers are an interesting group to...continue reading

WR Rookie Rankings - Redraft and Dynasty

This year’s wide receiver class was not supposed to be anything special. A couple of elite guys and maybe a few good players who could become starters, but they were overshadowed by the running backs. After the draft though, I am excited to see how this class performs in 2018 and beyond. A lot of good landing spots turned decent receivers into players with a lot of upside. Part three of my Rookie Rankings Series will...continue reading

RotoBaller's Early 2018 Redraft Football Mock - Rounds 4-6

Welcome to the RotoBaller Mock Redraft, which we are doing way, way too early because we care way, way too much about fantasy football. But hey--you care too much too, because you're here with us on this adventure! We're one big, football family! This slow draft has been going on for a little while, which has given us all a lot of chances to reflect on where we succeeded and failed. Let's look at rounds 4,...continue reading

RotoBaller's Early 2018 Redraft Football Mock - Rounds 2-3

It's been a minute (figuratively speaking) since we started this mock draft, and many moves have been made on the free agent market over the last couple of weeks. Then there's the Cleveland Browns, who threw everything into chaos on one March day. With the NFL Draft still weeks away and many cuts, signings, and trades still to come, an early mock is sure to bring debate with each pick, which is exactly why we did...continue reading

Early Dynasty Startup Mock Draft - Round 2

This is the second installment in our way-too-early dynasty startup mock draft series.  The first round of any draft is crucial to get a player who can act as the foundation of your team, mess that up and you’ll be playing from behind the curve for the first year if not longer. If the first round is where you draft your cornerstone piece, the second is where people often draft young high up-side players that...continue reading

RotoBaller's Early 2018 Redraft Football Mock - Round 1

The great thing about playing your favorite game with true fantasy degenerates is that there is never an "off" time for the game. It feels like yesterday we started drafting, both in eulogy to the 2017 fantasy football season, and a eulogy to when the RotoBaller writing team started our in-house PPR draft, which has officially been going on for three weeks as of this writing. Our team was eager to do any sort of mock...continue reading

Early Dynasty Startup Mock Draft - Round 1

Here at Rotoballer, it’s never too early for a football mock draft! Free agency and the NFL draft will change the composition of the league, but the accompanying hype can skew how we feel about players and lead to overdrafting mistakes (can anyone say Terrelle Pryor?). Dynasty football never ends, so we’re here to provide you with the insight you crave. This league’s starting lineup is 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1FLEX. All 20 rounds...continue reading

Dynasty Wide Receivers - Football Rankings Analysis

Wide receivers have been prioritized by dynasty owners in recent years, as the movement toward running-back-by-committee and relatively short shelf-life of running backs has made them a more volatile commodity. Receivers can be productive well into their 30s and tend to be more consistent. After 2017, we may be seeing a shift back toward the early-RB philosphy. The re-emergence of Todd Gurley, impending return of David Johnson, and sudden surge...continue reading

Week 17 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs Industry Consensus

In Week 17, you can really throw the rankings out the window. In fact, you may have to throw half your starting roster onto the bench or waivers, as many fantasy studs will find themselves resting for the playoffs. Many a fantasy owner believes that leagues with championships in Week 17 should be disbanded. I can't disagree. That said, some of you are still fighting for a title and need to have the best information...continue reading

Week 16 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs Industry Consensus

To some extent, you can throw rankings out the window this week. Wait, keep reading! What I mean to say is that you already know who you're rolling with at nearly every position if you are playing for a championship, other than one or two flex spots. If you have a strong team at every other position, you'll want to play it relatively safe with a high-floor option. If you are the underdog and have...continue reading

Week 15 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs Industry Consensus

Lose one elite QB, gain another back. There was a seismic shift in the fantasy values of several players in Philadelphia and Green Bay this week with the unfortunate injury by Carson Wentz and the joyful return of Aaron Rodgers. The rankings will reflect as much, but also must take into consideration what position each team finds itself in. With just three games left, the playoff race is shaping...continue reading

Week 14 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

Are you liberal or conservative? No, I'm not talking politics. Trust me, that's the last thing I want to debate at this time of year. Or any time, for that matter. The question is do you stick with the safe, high-floor players as you fight to stay in the fantasy playoffs or do you roll the dice on boom-bust types that might pull out an early Christmas miracle for you? I've never been one to...continue reading

Week 13 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

Who says 13 is an unlucky number? Lots of people actually, but they'd be wrong. Triskaidekaphobia is surprisingly common, but ultimately meaningless. In fact, many cultures view the number 13 is tied to good fortune. Regardless of what you believe, you'll surely attribute your fantasy football fate this week to luck and/or the spite of the gods. In which case you would be right. Prepare all you want, but in the end we have no...continue reading

Week 12 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

This isn't just one of the best weeks of the year for NFL fans, it's also a great time for college football. I say this because soon we'll be talking about rookies potentially making an impact through the fantasy playoffs. Those players were in the midst of rivalry games and bowl talk this time a year ago, just as this year's incoming draft class is about to do. Even if you aren't a big fan...continue reading

Week 11 Rankings Analysis - Pierre Camus vs. Industry Consensus

In a week where so many picks went so wrong, it's good to know that many others were just as wrong. Sleepers Eli Manning, Bilal Powell, and Corey Davis were all big whiffs, while purported busts C.J. Beathard, Jonathan Stewart, and Emmanuel Sanders had their best games of the season. I was almost shocked that I managed...continue reading

Week 11 PPR Rankings (Top 300)

Welcome back folks. If you are reading this column, and still feverishly setting your fantasy lineups, then you are most likely still in the playoff hunt. Nice work.

There are some viable fantasy football players sitting this week, especially on the Panthers, and some Jets, 49ers and Colts too. Make sure you are adding or streaming the right players off the...continue reading
