Zero RB Suspects: Part II
After talking about six rookies who I think have a chance to help Zero Running Back drafters, it’s time for me to talk about six non-rookies who have a good chance to provide value for those drafting their starting running backs late.
Cordarrelle Patterson: A Disappointment Waiting to Happen
Recently, I found myself looking at MyFantasyLeague.com’s ADP to see where players are going, who is trending up and down, wondering if anything would catch my eye. When I took a look at the redraft PPR ADP, I saw Cordarrelle Patterson with a late 3rd round ADP as the 13th wide receiver off the board….
Zero RB Suspects: Rookies
This article is intended to find the rookies for proponents of the “Zero Running Back” strategy. The “Zero RB” strategy is built around the idea of taking wide receivers (or Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas, or Rob Gronkowski) early because they score the most points in PPR formats, leaving RB2 as your weakest starting position. There…
Rushing Stats: A Rookie Quarterback’s Best Friend
Vick. Tebow. Newton. Griffin III. These are just a few quarterbacks who electrified the NFL and fantasy football leagues early in their careers. What did they have in common? They used their legs to accumulate highlights as well as fantasy points. Quarterbacks often struggle to break through as passers their first year in the league, so…
Two of My Secret Loves: Randall and Jordy
When it comes to fantasy owners, some have qualms about targeting two guys on the same team – I don’t. If I can find two talented wide receivers that have Aaron Rodgers throwing to them, I’ll take them all day.
Who Were The Best Players Last Year Per Game
Previously I wrote about Who Were The Most Valuable Players Last Season, that list was created to decide who the best players were for the entire season. This list, which yields different results, was created to tell us who were the most valuable player per game last season.
Every year, players come out of the woodwork and severly outperform their ADP. These players are by far the most valuable because they provide top 12 production at the price of a mid-late round pick. Who is in line for a bigger workload? A rookie-to-sophomore leap? Did a change in offensive philosophy change this player’s…
Rookie Wide Receivers: Redraft Fool’s Gold
If you’re enough of a degen to seek fantasy football advice in the middle of May, then you’ve surely heard the hype surrounding rookies from dynasty leaguers and even people drafting in best ball leagues, like the popular MFL10.
Why Jimmy Graham Should Be A 1st Round Pick
If you’re a frequent reader of my articles, you already know I love Jimmy Graham. He was on 40% of Apex’s highest-scoring teams during the regular season and proved to be the 5th most valuable player last season. Still, I have people asking me if he’s worthy of a first round selection. The answer? Yes,…
Post-Draft ADP and Value Predictions: Part II
In Part I of this two-part series, I not only discussed how the fantasy value of established NFL players will likely be affected by the 2014 rookie draft class, I predicted how the 2014 draft will affect said players’ ADP in this summer’s fantasy drafts. Again, NFL drafts show the public how teams see themselves…
