Often in fantasy football leagues, players are undervalued because of biases surrounding a player. Constantly during drafts you hear someone say “good luck with him, he was terrible for me last season.”

Owners too frequently allow these emotional feelings to impact their decision-making. An example of this in 2015 is Jordan Reed. Read More »

Every year, there are fantasy busts. Everyone who has played fantasy football has drafted one and known the debilitating opportunity cost at season’s end…the infamous: “If only I took Player A instead of Player B in Round X, I would’ve won it all.”

Our brains are designed to look for patterns, and when a player burns us in the past our emotional thought processes subjectively avoid them.

Last year, Rueben Randle was one of the hottest breakout wideouts in fantasy football. We knew there would be targets to go around in New York, and someone besides Victor Cruz was going to have a standout season. Many fantasy owners took a chance on Randle in the 8th or 9th round. But that “someone” turned out to be prolific rookie Odell Beckham Jr. as Victor Cruz went down with a devastating patellar tendon tear.

At least Randle would receive some red zone production, right? Wrong. Coming out of nowhere, Larry Donnell doubled Randle’s touchdown numbers- scoring all of them inside the 20-yard line. Even 5’11”, 198 lb. Beckham scored eight red zone touchdowns. So where exactly is the silver lining for the aforementioned 6’2”, 208 lb. Randle? Let’s take a look. Read More »
