What a tumultuous beginning 2014 was for the Baltimore Ravens and their backfield. After the Ray Rice suspension, their backfield became one giant question mark. Was it time for Bernard Pierce to finally take the reins after his promising rookie campaign? Nope. Maybe draftnik darling Lorenzo Taliaferro would have an Alfred Morris-like rookie breakout? No sir.

Instead, journeyman Justin Forsett emerged from nowhere to be a fantasy MVP finishing as PPR RB8, 5th in rushing yards and 9th in RB receptions. There’s a few red flags as he heads into his age-30 season, but there’s a huge chance Justin Forsett is in for an even bigger year. Let’s explore that possibility.

For owners who draft Zero RB teams, it’s important to secure value at the running back position. There are three starting running backs who are drafted after pick 85, each could return value this season.

Each of these running backs have limited involvement in the pass game, but should lead their teams in carries. Let’s take a look at each player’s situation. Read More »

Every year, a bevy of players are projected to be the number one player at each position, or even overall. Here, I’m going to make the case that Demaryius Thomas should be the first wide receiver off the board, and arguably the first player off the board.

Sharing a tier with Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham, it is most likely you can’t go wrong with any of these players. But we aren’t looking for a good value. We are looking for the best value. Here is the case for Demaryius Thomas as exactly that.

Generally the easiest position for rookies to make an impact in fantasy football is at running back. While the receivers made the biggest splash last year, we know that hasn’t been a trend in the past.

This year I expect the rookie running backs to make the biggest impact. A talented crop of players, below are my five favorites to deliver value at their current draft position according to FFcalculator.com. I’ll use RotoViz’s Box Score Scout to show similar prospects. Read More »

The old adage goes “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While I have very little interest in finding out the context of that proverb, it definitely applies to fantasy football.

All strategies work… if you select the right players. However, depending on the flow of your draft, there may be times where you want to play it safe and go for a high floor, or take a falling player with huge upside but an injury risk. Today, I’m going to look at what the Rotoviz Similarity Scores say about the floors and ceilings of various players Want a safe WR3 or flex if you’re drafting with the Zero RB strategy? Need a WR1 ceiling at a WR2/3 price after drafting two RBs? Look no further, we are going to delve into the “late” early rounds and see which WRs with an fourth-round ADP fit your draft strategy.

Since running backs are fantasy’s most volatile position due to injury and turnover, finding great value in the later rounds or hitting on a handcuff is much more likely for running backs than arguably any other position.

This is especially important if you are employed a strategy such as Zero RB which relies on hitting on your late round running backs and playing the waiver wire. With the help of RotoViz apps, let’s take a look at some of the best late-round RBs who are being ignored too much.

After being selected with the 53rd overall pick of the 2014 draft out of Fresno State, the hype train immediately began on Davante Adams. After all, a 6’1”, 215 lb receiver who was historically productive in college on an Aaron Rodgers offense?

Some of this hype was quelled by the Packers’ recent resigning of Randall Cobb, but there’s little doubt that Adams is the best wide receiver “handcuff” in fantasy football this year. He’s been called the ‘MVP’ of OTAs by coach Mike McCarthy and even Aaron Rodgers has made his voice heard about Adams’ potential. Let’s explore why there’s so much excitement around this young pass catcher.
