The Reason Behind NFL Players’ Anthem Sit-Downs

Things are starting to flare up in the NFL, not because of its games or the team’s standings, but because of its players’ sentiments.

Fantasy Football Misconceptions

There are so many things that come out this time of the year from fantasy analysts. What we sometimes fail to remember is that there are also casual players that don’t understand things. It happens.

Your Fantasy Football Guide To Tearing It All Down and Rebuilding

Two weeks ago, I wrote my first article for Fantasy Assembly talking about trade targets for rebuilding and contending teams.

New Way of Calculating Strength of Schedule for 2017

New Way of Calculating Strength of Schedule for 2017

Both NFL and Fantasy experts can be critical of the typical strength of schedule (SOS) rankings that are calculated each season because it measures teams based on last year’s win-loss records.

Running Back Touchdown Regression

Touchdowns are king in fantasy football.

Dynasty Targets for Contenders and Rebuilders

Dynasty Targets for Contenders and Rebuilders

Kyle Rudolph is the mid-round tight end to target

Kyle Rudolph is the mid-round tight end to target

The tight end position is similar to that of quarterback in that there are only a few elite options who clearly separate themselves from the rest of the position. After that, however, the position becomes a jumbled mess where it becomes difficult to separate one player from another. Of that pack at the tight end […]
