With NFL teams passing more than ever, fantasy owners are justifiably waiting longer to draft quarterbacks. There are plenty of options – even if you wait to draft your quarterback outside of the first 100 picks. Here are some value picks for those who wait to draft a quarterback. Read More »

Sammy Watkins: Bonafide Superstar

Sammy Watkins is not the name you may think of when you think of league-winning wide receiver. According to MyFantasyLeague ADP, Sammy Watkins, the 2015 WR20, is going in the early 3rd round as the 17th wide receiver off the board. But I’m here to tell you that’s insane because Sammy Watkins is historically efficient and special. Once you see the data, you will be more than inclined to agree with me.

With your early round draft picks, it is important to pick players who put your team in position to succeed reliably week in and week out. With wide receivers being selected earlier than ever, running backs have the opportunity to return a lot of value for where they are being drafted. Here are some of the early round running backs that we expect to return value in 2016:

Have Faith In Hilton

Many fantasy owners, including myself, thought 2015 would be another beautiful step in the Andrew Luck-TY Hilton passing game love affair. With increasing yardage totals every year of his career culminating in a fantastic 82-1,345-7 line in 2014, a WR1 finish was seemingly a tease of what 2015 was to come.

But Hilton failed to live up to his WR9 2015 ADP as Andrew Luck got hurt while the Colts suffered through a lost season. But recency bias is getting in the way of what should be a 2016 continuation of the Luck-Hilton connection that hit the pause button in 2015, and his current WR15 ADP is a real value.

Although many fantasy football owners like me want to fancy themselves as “objective”, we are simply human – emotion plays into our decision making more than we’d like to admit. This is admittedly a mistake, but opportunity arises from these errors.

For the uninformed, post-hype sleepers are players who came into the previous season with lots of hype, hoopla, and costly ADP who ended up disappointing owners to various degrees. Many people will be scared of drafting these players next year even if their health, opportunity, and situation are no different from their previous season. Using MyFantasyLeague’s ADP, let’s see which running backs fit the bill for 2016:

This year I’ve seen drafters bypass Le’Veon Bell for Todd Gurley or Ezekiel Elliot too frequently, and I’m here to talk you out of that. Not only is Le’Veon Bell 2016’s top running back, he’s also in play for 2016’s top overall player regardless of position. Read More »

Is Golden Tate Undervalued?

Even after being in the league for six seasons, some people still ask: How good is Golden Tate? It’s honestly a fair question. We haven’t had a full season of Tate being featured as the number one option in a pass heavy offense. He never saw 100 targets in Seattle, and was usually playing second fiddle to Calvin Johnson in Detroit. But when Calvin was used as a decoy or missed games entirely, we saw flashes of Golden Tate as an elite fantasy receiver. With Calvin Johnson out of the picture and Tate lasting into the fourth round as WR23 in summer drafts, it is quite likely he is significantly undervalued. Read More »
