NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

Week two provides a little more clarity as we get a second week of sample sizes. A couple of players that were on waiver wires last week are still there, but the price just got a lot higher – in the same way the price has gone down on several others. I think people sometimes […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buy Low/Sell High: Week 2

Buying low and selling high is hard to do after week one. Draft day value is still attached to every player. People don’t, and shouldn’t, want to sell their top picks after a bad week. Week two gives that second data point, and second panic point. One week and the thought is it was just […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

Early season waivers are different than the middle weeks when bye weeks start to hit hard. Early in the year, all you are looking for is a breakout more often than not. Circumstances are different in deeper leagues with like 14-16 teams. There, finding someone who could be a five catch for 70 yard receiver […]

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Buy Low Sell High: Don’t put too much emphasis on Week 1

Week one brings on a lot of overreaction. It is our only data point so we have nothing to compare it to. There will be a lot of confirmation bias here. People you thought were good preseason were good, so now you KNOW they are good. Same goes for bad players. Yes we know something […]

The quarterback position features a number of players who can be counted on year after year to provide elite numbers. Their names are well-known and include Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Andrew Luck. Otherwise, most quarterbacks experience some seasons that are better for fantasy production than others. Both Cam Newton and Eli Manning […]

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: Quarterback

Early Season ADP: Quarterback

It’s never too early to start fantasy football prep. Even though the NFL draft is still two weeks away, there are already things that can be taken from early draft ADP. Today I’ll discuss three quarterbacks at their current ADP, one of which is overvalued and two that are undervalued. Ben Roethlisberger: Steelers (Overvalued) Ben […]

Tom’s Trophy to Lose

Tom’s Trophy to Lose

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. […]
