If you’re enough of a degen to seek fantasy football advice in the middle of May, then you’ve surely heard the hype surrounding rookies from dynasty leaguers and even people drafting in best ball leagues, like the popular MFL10. Read More »

If you’re a frequent reader of my articles, you already know I love Jimmy Graham. He was on 40% of Apex’s highest-scoring teams during the regular season and proved to be the 5th most valuable player last season.

Still, I have people asking me if he’s worthy of a first round selection. The answer? Yes, he absolutely is. Read More »

In Part I of this two-part series, I not only discussed how the fantasy value of established NFL players will likely be affected by the 2014 rookie draft class, I predicted how the 2014 draft will affect said players’ ADP in this summer’s fantasy drafts. Again, NFL drafts show the public how teams see themselves in the mirror and how the address those needs. It not only says a lot about the player they select, but often (not always) how they feel about a player(s) currently on the roster. Take a look at Part II:

Even after finishing as the No. 1 scoring wide receiver in Apex Leagues last season, it still feels like Demaryius Thomas is undervalued. Currently being drafted behind A.J. Green in MyFantasyLeague’s ADP, Demaryius Thomas is not getting the respect he deserves. Read More »

2013 saw career seasons from many different NFL players. However, the past doesn’t always predict the future, and in these players’ situations their 2013 may go down as their best statistical season. Whether it be due to coaching changes, personnel additions, or simply teammates recovering from injury, these players’ statistics are more than likely to regress coming into 2014. Take a look:

Last week I took a look at how fantasy owners can properly use fantasy points per target (FP/t) to predict breakout wide receivers. I ran a similar analysis on tight ends, to see if there were any similarities among tight ends that showed promise in limited opportunity in one year and broke out as fantasy starters the following season.

Author’s Note: This article pertains to Apex Fantasy Football Money Leagues’ scoring (PPR with 4 Points Per Passing TD) and does not apply to 2 QB or 6 Points Per Passing Touchdown Leagues.

After providing the 4th most Points Above Average for owners in 2013, I fully expect Peyton Manning to be a 1st round fantasy football selection in 2014. Although it may be a contrarian viewpoint, I don’t think “The Sheriff” is worthy of your 1st round selection. Read More »

Possibly even more than free agency, the draft gives us an honest look into how NFL teams view themselves- their strengths, weaknesses, and everything in between. I decided to take a look at how NFL teams addressed those concerns, and how those draft choices will affect veteran players with a fantasy football lens. Will their ADP rise or fall? Have they increased or decreased in value? Without further ado, my predictions:

I wrote this article literally hours before news of Josh Gordon’s possible suspension broke. Oh what could’ve been…

Coming off a magnificent breakout campaign in 2013, Josh Gordon will face new challenges in 2014 (truly more than I could’ve known). This challenge starts with losing offensive guru Rob Chudzinski, who was replaced by Kyle Shanahan. To get a feel for how Shanahan will use Gordon, let’s take a look at how the “X” wide receivers have performed in his offense. Read More »
