If 2013 taught fantasy football owners anything, it’s that running backs are no sure bet. Anytime we invest an early pick on a player, it’s going to be hard for that player to actually meet their draft day value. This is why, early in a draft, owners are drafting for safety just as much as they are for upside. By exploring a range of outcomes, rather than median season long projections, we can get an idea of how safe a player actually is. Read More »

In parts one and two of this series, I went over the first six draft slots in the Apex Expert Writers’ Draft (three slots in each article).  In case you missed it, Apex invited respected fantasy voices from across the web to participate in an Apex league. Here is my analyses, in a four-part series, of everyone’s teams. Remember: all of these opinions are my own, and the writers had zero input into these analyses. Here is Part Three:

Drafting a complete, balanced, competitive fantasy team is hard enough. When you’re drafting against some of the greatest minds in fantasy football, it becomes downright impossible. In the Apex Expert Writers League, rarely did a guy fall into your lap. If you wanted him, you couldn’t count on waiting a round. Your strategy shifted with every pick until the board was picked dry. But all of these writers still found a way to form competitive squads, and I’m going to analyze 3 teams at a time in a 4 part series. All of these opinions are my own, and the writers had zero input into these analyses.

My strategy this season often involves waiting on the tight end position. It’s not that I don’t like Gronk, I do… Same with Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas but all three of those players come with a hefty price tag. Often during those early picks, I’m selecting a running back or wide receiver – leaving my tight end position vacant until the late rounds. Read More »

In Part I of the series, I discussed why you should take Big Ben over Andy Dalton, Aaron Dobson over Steve Smith, and a couple others.

Instead of just discussing my draft, which I’ve done in other places. I’m going to discuss many of the players who will make a difference in this draft and explain my stance on them. Usually the players who end up changing to complexion of the draft are the players who are taken extremely high or low.

Many of the owners in this draft made drastic moves to make sure they got the players they wanted.  Here are some of the risers and the fallers in this draft: Read More »

Wide Receivers Who Are Being Drafted At Their Ceilings

When you first gazed upon this article, you may have asked yourself, “What is wrong with drafting people at their ceilings if that is what we expect them to do?” And here is the answer: you are not taking into account the entire range of possibilities when drafting a player expecting everything to go perfectly right. Also, when there is barely a chance that a player exceeds his draft slot, you are getting next to no value.

Understanding draft day value in fantasy football consists of more than ranking players based on median projections and drafting them in that order. Fantasy owners should consider high and low projections, as well, and figure out how likely it is for a player to finish in different areas of that range. Read More »
