It is that time of year. Football is about a month and a half away from meaning something again and that means that our fantasy football drafts are just weeks away. I’ll be moving around these rankings from time to time, but I feel pretty good about these at this point in time.

The quarterback position is a lot tougher to tell readers to avoid certain players. There are 20-25 quarterbacks who have value to a fantasy roster every season. According to ESPN scoring, QB7-QB12 were only separated by 18 points for the season. That’s slightly more than one point per week if you count the playoffs. If you are a participant in two quarterback leagues or deeper leagues, the difference in scoring for QB16-QB21 was just over 5 points for the season.

With bye weeks, in most leagues with 14 or more teams, it’s necessary to draft a back up quarterback especially if you’re one of the last owners to pick a quarterback which is a pretty common strategy. That strategy, by the way, is one that I fully support. This makes a lot of quarterbacks viable options as a QB2 when you factor in bye weeks and tough defensive foes on the schedule. Another factor is that early July ADP seems to align with my thinking on individuals at the quarterback position. All I can do is tell you who I see myself avoiding this season and you can take it for what it’s worth.

Hello everyone! I hope you guys all had a great 4th of July holiday, filled with great food, great friends and family, and even better fireworks!

Before we get even further into July, where I will be releasing many different articles, rankings and podcasts with the rest of the Razzball team, I want to take a quick look at quite possibly one of my favorite fantasy football teams this year – the Chicago Bears.

Even though my heart lies with the Patriots, I do have to say, I have a bit of a soft spot for the Bears. I always like to see them do well, especially because as I was growing up in the past 18 years, they were always the lovable losers against the Packers. But this year, I believe things will be different. I think this year is shaping up to be a great one for the Bears. In fact, I think they could finish second in this division (ahead of the Packers but behind the Vikings), make it to the playoffs as a Wild Card team, and be one of the most productive fantasy offenses in the NFL this year.

So let’s get into it!

Hey guys, welcome to July! Can you smell it? We’re only a couple of weeks away from Training Camp, one of the best times of the year!

Today we finish up the final post of my mini-series, where I took a look at the QB and HB busts from last year, learned from our mistakes, and predicted whether or not they would bounce-back this year.

Well now we come to the conclusion of the series, so let’s take a look at 4 different Wide Receiver busts from last year, figure out what went wrong, and see if we want to take any of them this fall.

Let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the second post in my ADP Preview series, where I’ll be taking a look at many different players and their subsequent ADP data to give Razzball readers a sense of which players I like at their price, which players I do not like at their price, and other draft strategy that I believe is essential for drafts this fall.

We are almost in July, and while we still have between 5 to 6 weeks before Training Camp officially begins, it’s still a great idea to figure out our draft strategies and what players we’ll be targeting in each round.

So let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the first of many ADP posts here. I’ll be taking a look at some early average-draft-position data for fantasy drafts in the fall, my analysis of the players in question, and how things could change between now and August.

Mock drafts are some of my favorite things about things about fantasy football. During the summer, you can usually find me on Fantasy Football Calculator (where we are getting our ADP data from today) for multiple hours on end, practicing and figuring out every strategy that I could possibly use in the next few months.

What’s crucial about this is to study public opinion on some of the key players that’ll be selected in 2018. What were the opinions of these players earlier in the summer? Has there been some major shakeups to the data over the past few months? Who has risen? Who has fallen? How has the draft impacted things?

These questions will be answered thanks to this series, so let’s kick it off and get an initial read on things for the summer.
