Running Back Touchdown Regression

Running Back Touchdown Regression

Touchdowns are king in fantasy football. A player’s entire fantasy outlook any given week can change with a trip (or two) to the end zone and go from a major disappointment to a week winning performance. Given that, it’s worth looking at players who will likely regress both positively and negatively. In this article, I […]

Two Deep Sleepers at Running Back

Two Deep Sleepers at Running Back

Sleeper and breakout columns are common topics at this point of the summer in the lead-up to fantasy football season, yet it seems that the same names are recycled on every site. This season, common favorites include Ty Montgomery (who has seen his ADP skyrocket from the 10th to 5th round since January) and Tevin […]

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Running Back

2017 Bounce Back Candidates: Running Back

The running back position bounced back as a whole in 2016 compared to the overall performance in 2015. That doesn’t mean that some running backs did not disappoint, however, and that provides the fantasy community with some bounce-back candidates heading into 2017. Thomas Rawls: Seattle Seahawks Thomas Rawls was a trendy name during draft season […]

Passing Distribution Chart

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. This is one of the most divisive positions in the fantasy game, but no matter when you want to draft running backs, the focus should be workload and ensuring any back you draft […]

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 […]

Waiver Wire Week 17

Waiver Wire Week 17

The last waiver article for the 2016 season. Many are probably already long gone either because of early elimination or a week 16 final. But, for those of you still in the running for a week 17 title, here is my final waiver wire article for the season. And don’t forget my tip from last […]

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 […]

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Week 16 Waiver Wire

Whether this is your final run at waivers or you have one more go at it before a week 17 matchup, the basic idea doesn’t change. Use whatever FAAB you have left to get one of the top options. You will notice I didn’t put in FAAB amounts or if you should burn a waiver […]

Week 15 Start or Sit

Week 15 Start or Sit

If you’re reading still, congrats on still being alive. Week 15 has a couple interesting storylines heading into the weekend. The cold and the bad quarterback situation. Weather in the Packers/Bears and Chiefs/Titans games are going to be below freezing. While cold isn’t typically a big deal, below freezing is a different story. If I […]

Week 15 Injury Report

Week 15 Injury Report

For most leagues this is the championship week – or next week. Either way, there is little room for error right now. At this point in the season there is very little to say. Make sure to double-check all your players prior to setting your lineup, and good luck to you this week. Darren Sproles […]

Week 15 Waiver Wire

Week 15 Waiver Wire

With only one (two if you play into week 17) waiver weeks left, if there is a player on the wire that you need or can help you win this week or next, you have to do what you can to get him. No saving it for someone better now.  If the top names aren’t […]

Start or Sit Week 14

Start or Sit Week 14

Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs for a lot of owners, meaning this week is do or die. I have mentioned it before and will say it again: don’t second guess something if it makes sense. Playoff time usually has a lot of second guessing because of the finality of it all. […]

Week 14 Injury Report

Week 14 Injury Report

This is it, the culmination of what you’ve been playing for all season. Playoffs should be in full swing in every league, which means there is no tomorrow. The good news is that the injury list is rather thin this week. Most of the questionable players have been so for at least a week so […]

Week 14 Waiver Wire

Week 14 Waiver Wire

It’s playoff time which means every pickup could be the difference from being a champion or just another playoff team This time of the year most of the guys you are looking to add to give you a title are running backs filling in for injured starters. Receivers that are still available, are in many […]

Week 13 Injury Report

Week 13 Injury Report

Unlike last week’s injury report, Week 13 is chalked full of fantasy relevant injuries. While this may be disastrous for some owners vying for a playoff spot, many of the players below have fairly optimistic outlooks when it comes to being able to suit up.  Since this is the last week of the regular season […]

Start or Sit Week 13

Start or Sit Week 13

For a lot of people this is the last chance to clinch a playoff spot or play in a meaningful fantasy football game. For some this could be the start of the fantasy playoffs. If you haven’t clinched or are in a “win and in” type situation, these are the start sit decisions you will […]

Waiver Wire Week 13

Waiver Wire Week 13

There might be some interesting guys out there in your league, but for the most part this week’s waiver wire is boring. A lot of guys from last week graduated to being too highly owned. I would empty the wallet if someone like Sammy Watkins was still available. This seems like a stock up on […]
