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…
Why Demaryius Thomas Should Be Considered as the No. 1 WR
Even after finishing as the No. 1 scoring wide receiver in Apex Leagues last season, it still feels like Demaryius Thomas is undervalued. Currently being drafted behind A.J. Green in MyFantasyLeague’s ADP, Demaryius Thomas is not getting the respect he deserves.
2013 saw career seasons from many different NFL players. However, the past doesn’t always predict the future, and in these players’ situations their 2013 may go down as their best statistical season. Whether it be due to coaching changes, personnel additions, or simply teammates recovering from injury, these players’ statistics are more than likely to…

I decided to take a look at how NFL teams addressed those concerns, and how those draft choices will affect veteran players with a fantasy football lens. Will their…
The Shanahan Effect: What Could’ve Been
I wrote this article literally hours before news of Josh Gordon’s possible suspension broke. Oh what could’ve been… Coming off a magnificent breakout campaign in 2013, Josh Gordon will face new challenges in 2014 (truly more than I could’ve known). This challenge starts with losing offensive guru Rob Chudzinski, who was replaced by Kyle Shanahan….
Fantasy Points Per Target: A Wide Receiver Breakout Indicator?
We hear it every year in fantasy football circles: “He was so good when he actually played.
