Once you get past the top 15, it is a mixed bag when it comes to running backs. There is no doubt that there is a lot of talent here and also a lot of opportunity. But, you and I both know that injuries, performance issues, and better performance by teammates will affect a handful of backs in this group. But, I have to do the best that I can to forecast these outcomes with the information that I have on hand.

Heading into drafts, a lot of owners are going to be aggressive when drafting the tight end position. It’s clear that Kelce, Ertz and Kittle are in a tier of their own. If you draft one of those players, then you’ll be standing out from the rest of the league. However, some owners might not be comfortable with drafting a tight end in the 2nd or 3rd round, and for them, punting the position is a viable strategy as they load up on receivers and backs.

There are a lot of tight ends this season that have serious upside to finish in the top 10 of the position, and offer very cheap price tags past the 9th round, so let’s talk about a few.

A friend and I were recently texting during a mock draft and he kept finding pockets of players with similar ADP and seemingly similar upside. We would go back and forth making points and counterpoints, but in the end, with the timer running out, it was just a gut call. I realized that may not be optimal and ventured to create a “checklist” of sorts to compare similar players alongside each other.

We are entering the final week of my rankings extravaganza! Running back is my favorite position to speculate on and the position that I usually lean on in the first round of drafts. I always find myself wanting to build my fantasy teams around a running back that is going to be one of the league leaders in touches. Running back can get thin pretty early and drafts and the later round guys tend to be speculation picks. So here are the top guys to target.

Donkey Teeth and B_Don are joined by a special guest on this week’s podcast, Ryan McDowell of Dynasty League Football (DLF).

While B_Don fights technical difficulties, DT and Ryan discuss the Scott Fish Bowl draft. They talk about some of the more convoluted situations including the NE and SF running back situations along with expectations for top tight ends this season. Once the whole crew is together, the guys look at B_Don’s approach to super flex/OP drafting, and then get into some rookie rankings with the dynasty guru.

Are you playing in three wide receiver leagues? If you aren’t, what’s wrong with you? Do you not like fantasy points? You must be a fan of the Big Ten style fantasy leagues and grinding out those low scoring victories. I can respect it. I like 3WR formats and if you do too, today is your day for WR rankings! Just like my age, let’s go to the 30’s and beyond.

The 2018 off-season was an exciting one for Kirk Cousins. Not only did he earn the only fully guaranteed contract in NFL history, he also earned the highest paying contract in league history as well, a grand total of $84 million over three years. Expectations were high for Cousins in his first year for the Vikings, and unfortunately for him, it didn’t go very well. The Vikings failed to reach the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.

The first thing that should be written here is that Chris Godwin is good at football. He may even be great and there’s a chance he’s elite. Unfortunately, the founding fathers of our game decided not to reward actual skill, but rather on field production in real games. Of course, this is a 101-level point to make, but it’s worth remembering. A tremendous amount of buzz is building for Godwin and recently an article was published entitled Why You Should Worship at the Altar of Chris Godwin. Now, this is not intended to be a rebuttal to that article in particular but more a sensible tapping of the breaks as draft season approaches.
