Passing Distribution Chart

A common misconception among fantasy owners is many may believe that certain NFL teams, as a whole, will improve and therefore will generate more touches for everyone. Looking at NFL offenses from the last 3 seasons, the number of offensive plays called by all 32 teams from 2014 through 2016 averaged 61.8 plays per game. […]

Early Season ADP: Running Back

Early Season ADP: Running Back

I’m back to follow-up on last week’s overrated and underrated players. In this article, we’ll shift over to the running back position.

The NFL Rookie Salad Bar

The NFL Rookie Salad Bar

I have been known to avoid rookies. Over time, I came to be labeled a rookie hater. I’m not completely against rookies – Honest. The attention I give to them might be likened to a buffet table. I do thoroughly enjoy a hearty salad filled with an assortment of raw vegetables, cheese and egg, topped […]

Beauty is in the O-Line of the Beholder

Beauty is in the O-Line of the Beholder

As fantasy owners, we realize that generally the success of an individual player may hinge on several factors. Either directly or indirectly, it may include his teammates, his coaches, the schedule/opponent and even his offensive line. But even the most stellar of statistics can be met with controversy. Take the Chicago Picasso sculpture at Daley […]

A Quick Glance at the 2017 NFL Coaching Changes

A Quick Glance at the 2017 NFL Coaching Changes

An associate at work has recently rekindled my appreciation for The Who. Why do I bring this up? Each season a new batch of coaches are hired to turn around a struggling NFL franchise. Are the new coaches “a substitute for another guy?” “Are the simple things we see all complicated?” The optimist would say […]

32 NFL Teams and 32 Things to Watch

Players and situations I like “or don’t like” from each NFL team, one month prior to the official start of the 2017 NFL free agent period at 4:00 P.M. on March 9. Arizona: Who stands to benefit next can be up for debate. With the release of Michael Floyd, many see John Brown stepping into […]

An NFL scout needs to know more than just the rules and intricacies of the game. An NFL scout must be a student of game film so they can determine which players will benefit their team the most. In the fantasy world, most of us self-proclaimed fantasy scouts do not have access to game film. […]

Tom’s Trophy to Lose

Tom’s Trophy to Lose

Once again, it’s looking like Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will be making a trip back to the biggest game in all of sports. They’re currently riding an NFL-best seven game win streak, and following Tom Brady’s four week suspension to start the year, they are more than ready for Roger Goodell to […]

FanDuel NFL Wild Card Plays and Stay Aways

FanDuel NFL Wild Card Plays and Stay Aways

Welcome to the Wild Card round. I don’t love these short slates, but I’m too much of a degenerate to not play. I’ll scale back my entries this week, and maybe build a couple teams with some contrarian plays. This week’s write up will be shorter than normal due to a much smaller player pool, but […]

Week 17 NFL DraftKings picks

Week 17 NFL DraftKings picks

Happy New Year everyone!  Last week was hugely frustrating for me – I had a lineup with David Johnson (34.6 DK points), LeSean McCoy (28.5), Allen Robinson (26.7), Adam Thielen (47.6), Delanie Walker (11.3), Mark Ingram (25.3) and the Chargers defense (10.0) heading into the Sunday night game.  I was in about 150th place out […]

Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 Start or Sit

Week 17 is a lot different than every other week in the fantasy season, and a big part of why a lot of people are against playing a week 17 championship. A lot of teams have nothing to play for this week. Whether they have locked up a playoff spot or they have no chance […]

Start or Sit Week 16

Start or Sit Week 16

Wow. Week 16. Time really flies. If I had to guess for a majority of you this is the championship, or at least week one of a two-week final. I know for weeks I have been saying trust the research, and I do think that is true, but there is something about championship week that […]
