Four Late Round Quarterback Value Picks
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.
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…
Four Early Round Value Picks at Running Back
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…
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…
2016 Post-Hype Values: Running Backs
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…

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.

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…
Five Rookie Running Backs That You Should Know for 2016 – Part 1
Rookie running backs frequently have an impact both in the NFL and fantasy leagues: Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, and most recently Todd Gurley just to name a few. It’s common knowledge for fantasy owners that running backs are frequently injured, and this leads to increased opportunities for backups. An example of this is David Johnson last…
Wide Receiver Touchdown Variance and Regression
Ahhh, touchdowns. The most exciting play in football and also to your fantasy teams. Whatever fantasy football league you play, touchdowns count (including some that ONLY count touchdowns). Since they are one of the universal stats in fantasy football, predicting them becomes vital to your drafting and overall fantasy success. Although it is far from…
