When I wrote the original Four Rookie Wide Receivers To Keep An Eye On, I didn’t include many interesting rookie wide receivers. Many of these receivers are unlikely to have an impact early in the season but don’t let that fool you into thinking that they won’t have an impact this season. Guys like Keenan Allen, Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans, and Jarvis Landry have taught us that rookie wide receivers can have big impacts, even after a rocky start. Read More »

The first four to five rounds of drafts can be relatively easy- nearly every player has either a nice floor, nice ceiling, or a combination of both. But once you get into the later rounds…that’s what separates the winners from the losers in fantasy football leagues. Everyone has injuries and bye weeks, and having a solid bench of upside guys is what is going to get you through the adversity suffered by fantasy owners every year. Using ADP from Fantasy Football Calculator, let’s explore some options:

In PPR leagues, wide receivers are king. Finding wideouts to fill your WR3/Flex position is what is going to win you matchups, and you can’t always have a great 3rd wideout if you decide to take Gronk or an RB in the first three rounds. Here are a few wideouts being drafted on the WR2/3 border who can produce like 2nd rounders: Read More »

First, it was DeSean Jackson in 2013. Then Jeremy Maclin had his career year in 2014. The Eagles’ number one receiver in 2015? Jordan Matthews. Turning offensive silver/bronze into gold at the wide receiver position for two straight years, its kind of hard to doubt the effectiveness of Chip Kelly’s effect on his number one pass-catcher. Gone is Jeremy Maclin, opening up a huge opportunity for Mr. Matthews. Kelly seemed confident enough to let Maclin go, can Matthews step up and be their number one guy? Let’s find out.

Jeremy Hill’s rookie season was a resounding success. Coming into 2014, it was supposed to be the Giovani Bernard show. Owners spent a 2nd round pick on Bernard while the rookie Hill was often available in the 9th and 10th rounds of fantasy drafts.

Bernard started out scorching hot, but by November it was Hill who was carrying fantasy owners to victory. The tables have turned in 2015 with Hill going in the mid-2nd round and Bernard available in rounds 5 and 6. But is Hill’s upside being ignored? Let’s find out. Read More »

Well, we’ve already had our first major injury of this young NFL season. At training camp last week, Arian Foster suffered a groin injury that proved to require surgery mere minutes after he was selected at 9th overall in the Apex Expert’s League draft

Sadly, soft-tissue injuries have been a theme for Foster over the years even though his per-game performance has remained elite. But in the next-man-up culture that pervades the NFL, we must look onward to the players vying for carries in Houston for the first couple months of the 2015 season. The three main candidates are Jonathan Grimes, Chris Polk, and Alfred Blue. It is entirely possible this situation turns into a full-blown committee attack, but who possesses the most upside if they win the job?
