What’s going on everyone, and welcome back to the second post in a series I will be doing over the next few weeks, where I’ll be taking a look at each position’s “busts” from the year before (comparing their finish in standard leagues to their pre-season ADP data), to help us figure out what went wrong last year, and to see if they can bounce-back in 2018.Please, blog, may I have some more?
All the season-long projections you could ever want. A kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
Rudy Gamble joins me to talk about his 2018 projections and what he picked up on from the 2017 season. It was a great conversation as we got a little bit into position battles, aDOT, and the splitting of work loads. Rudy’s introduction post for 2018 should be up today or tomorrow so be sure to check that out as well!Please, blog, may I have some more?
In a shocking turn of events Thursday afternoon, the NFL world learned of Julian Edelman’s very likely suspension of 4 games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
The Patriots aren’t too foreign to the concept of their star players being suspended for 4 games, so let’s dive into what this suspension means for the Patriots, but more importantly, fantasy owners come draft time.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to a new series that I am starting for our favorite site. I’m going to go through the wide receiver, quarterback, and running back positions and let you know the names that I don’t see myself drafting this year. This is just for me personally so it is certainly not the end-all-be-all. We are approaching June so it’s time for me to start thinking about picking my favorites and and who I will be avoiding at all costs.
The difficult part of this article will be that training camp has yet to start so a lot could change and I may end up contradicting myself down the line. But I am going to try and list the players that I am most certain that I will be avoiding. Most of this will be based on early adp and rankings from the big named sites. So far I have perused Mike Clay, Matthew Berry, and some of the combined FantasyPros rankings to compile my opinions. We’re going to dive into past statistics, current roster construction, among other things. The weather is heating up so let’s bring out the hot takes.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Some of you know how big of a Bill Simmons fan that I am. One of my best internet memories is when he included one of my questions in his mailbag when he still had the Grantland site. Well folks, I snagged my favorite football writer from his site; The Ringer’s own, Danny Kelly. We talked briefly about the Bryan Colangelo burner account news (a must read if you live under a rock). We also talked about real football, fantasy football, and Killing Eve. I had a fantastic time and hope you enjoy listening to it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, it’s not even June, and we’re already losing some big-name fantasy players to the injury bug.
In the first day of their OTA’s, the Los Angeles Chargers have lost their 3rd-year Tight End to a torn ACL for the entirety of the 2018 season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy football is a conundrum, and far too often the most surprising of breakout candidates are far too obvious in hindsight (We should have seen Adam Thielen coming, guys). While even the most well-argued “sleepers” fail to pan out year over year, we as obsessed fantasy football gamers can take solace in the fact that hopefully more often than not, our process was correct. This year, one such player has been calling my name in every single draft. In both best ball and dynasty leagues, this player stares at me in the very late rounds with tantalizing upside that for some reason the rest of the world has yet to see. My most owned player in all formats this year is Albert Wilson, and you should be buying too. He finds himself in the middle of a talent, investment, and opportunity Venn Diagram this year: He is a very good player, has significant opportunity in front of him to be fantasy relevant, and a team has spent significant capital on him through a healthy contract.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In the golden age of rookie production in the NFL, it’s only right that I give them their own article. We had two rookies finish in the top 10 in the 2017 season and neither of them were Christian McCaffery or Leonard Fournette. Kareem Hunt, who finished #9, made a late push in the 2017 fantasy draft season at the expense of Spencer Ware’s season ending injury. When it was all said and done, Hunt was going in the third and fourth round in a lot of leagues.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Zach joins me for a RazzBlitz episode that is the same way we started it, one on one. We talk about David Johnson’s 1,000/1,000 goal and how he compares to the rest of the elite options at running back. We talked about Rob Gronkowski vs. Travis Kelce and finished football talk by analyzing the Buccaneer’s wide receiver corps. The second half of the episode we talked about Zach’s trip to Rolling Loud hip hop festival.Please, blog, may I have some more?
