I’m re-energized and ready to dive into preparation for the 2019 fantasy football season. Most of you are preparing for the fantasy baseball season and to be honest so am I. But, there is room in my heart and my brain for both, thanks to slow drafts. Speaking of slow, how about that Super Bowl, amiright? Maybe we could have used Drew Brees in Atlanta because Jared Goff gave the worst quarterback performance that I can remember in a Super Bowl. Not only was the game a snoozer, but Greg Zuerlein’s missed field goal at the end of the game cost me a $200 dollar square. Oh, gambling. While we’re on the subject, so much for those touchdown props. I’m convinced that we all have secretly died without realizing it and went to hell and our punishment is to witness Boston sports championships for all of eternity. Sports, you are dumb but I can’t quit you!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best blend of accurate and bold weekly projections for QB/RB/WR/TE + PK + Defensive Teams and IDP as well as a kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
One of the best things about the Super Bowl is the prop bets. Not only are they a fun assortment of both football and miscellaneous bets, but friends and family that wouldn’t know a parlay from a quinella enthusiastically place bets. I compiled my favorites for an extra thick Propageddon. Here are some bets I find particularly interesting:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey y’all. Please note that where fantasy position ranks are cited: they were pulled from www.pro-football-reference.com’s NFL Fantasy Rankings. Also note that these are non-PPR rankings. This list only includes Un-Restricted Free Agents (UFAs), it does not include Exclusive Rights Free Agents (ERFAs) or Antonio Brown (We can rank Tony once we see if his QB is going to be future HOFer Big Ben or future Gym Teacher Blake Bortles or someone in between, but don’t think either spot or any in between really changes his value much).Please, blog, may I have some more?
No, I don’t know what the Broncos cheerleaders have to do with the running backs, but it worked to get your click. Full disclosure, I was totally wrong on the Broncos backfield in 2018, as were many others. At the start of the season, I was expecting a timeshare between Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker with Freeman taking the between the tackles work and Booker being the primary pass catcher.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I sit down with Rotowan and Reid and we hash out the gambling prospects of the conference championships. We also talk about the Panther’s fantasy potential if Cam Newton sits out for the 2019 season. We continue our tradition of talking crap about the coaching carousel that happens every season in the NFL, including our disappointment that Hue Jackson doesn’t have a job yet. Come join us!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This weekend, everybody gets a turn in the playoffs. There aren’t any bye weeks left so we get to see the best of the best. Seven games now separate us from a new Super Bowl champion. If you had a bad gambling weekend or playoff fantasy weekend, we get to do it all again this weekend. Reid had an incredible run last weekend with his picks going 4-0. He’s red hot right now and I have his picks for you. I didn’t do so hot, finishing 1-2-1 or 2-2 depending on the gambling site that you used for the Seahawks’ spread. My fortunes change this week! Let’s get down to it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is the weekend where it all starts to get a little too real. There are only 11 football games left until we go seven or so months without it. ELEVEN! Like the name of that girl in Stranger Things that gets more bloody noses than you and your buddies at a Vegas bachelor party. At the same time, it is my second favorite football weekend of the year even though the Buccaneers never make the playoffs. I gamble on every game and find a way to play some sort of fantasy. There are so many different ways to throw away your already taxed hard earned dollars. I’m going to give you my picks against the spread and a couple of nice DFS options that I like this weekend.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s that time of year: Santa has come and gone, the ball has dropped, you’re ready to avoid your family for 10 months and fantasy football season is officially over. On this week’s wrap up episode B_Don & DT revisit each of their 2018 fantasy football stogie bets, as well as some of their bad […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Before I flip my proverbial switch to MLB, I wanted to share some reflections on a humbling 2018 fantasy football season. As most of y’all know, I am a bit of an odd duck. Most fantasy football enthusiasts love season-long, DFS or both. I love building and maintaining in-season fantasy player projection systems. I like […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What are my rankings bona fidas? Well, there’s finishing in the FantasyPros Top-10 Draft Accuracy (7th Place) in 2017, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy (23rd Place) in 2017, Top-5 Draft Accuracy (3rd place) in 2016, Top-10 Weekly Accuracy (10th Place) in 2016, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy in 2015 (21st Place) and on average we’ve finished in the Top-10 Draft Accuracy (9th Overall) and the Top-20 Weekly Accuracy (18th Overall) for the past three years. I’d like to think we’re pretty good at this stuff…
What does the word bona fidas mean? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, bo·na fi·des \ ˌbō-nə-ˈfī-ˌdēz , ÷ˈbō-nə-ˌfīdz \ means 1 : good faith : sincerity, 2 : the fact of being genuine —often plural in construction, 3 : evidence of one’s good faith or genuineness —often plural in construction, 4 : evidence of one’s qualifications or achievements —often plural in construction. On a separate note, I think it would make a great name for a cat.
What’s my ranking process? I’ve actually written about this in the past, and instead of working hard for new and enlightening content, I have chosen the more efficient (lazy, ahem) method and dropping in a link to that post here. Honestly, my process hasn’t changed much at all (the ole “don’t fix what ain’t broke” proverb comes to mind) and so my “A Day in the Life of a Fantasy Football Ranker” story still remains relevant to this day. (The TL;DR is: I’m ghetto as fudge. Well, I mean the other “f” word, but I’m hungry.)
How should I use your rankings? The same way your mother does. Which actually makes no sense. (Unless your mother is in the running to always finish top-3 in your Fantasy Football league. And if that’s the case, say hello to her for me.)Please, blog, may I have some more?
