Week 2 is in the past, and we have a somewhat clearer picture of what teams want to do. The Dolphins want to suck. The Patriots want to win another Super Bowl and apparently Dallas wants to play defense to go with their offense. With this in mind, we look at some move which you should consider making in hopes of cashing in on some of these trends. Whether it be selling a player before they lose value or buying early. Here are some moves you can make to get yourself, hopefully, to the playoffs in your fantasy leagues.

Donkey and B_Don are back this week, goin’ deep on new Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph. After breaking down the film from Rudolph’s second half performance against Seattle this past week, the guys take a look at how the fantasy relevant Steelers will be impacted. Is this a chance to buy low on early round studs JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner? Will Vance McDonald continue to thrive with the youngster Rudolph at the helm? Are any of Donte Moncrief, James Washington, or Diontae Johnson worth rostering? Tune in and find out.

Then Donkey Teeth is lured away by some juicy sugar beets, but MB swoops in to save the day during the pick ups segment. Some players discussed by B_Don and MB include Demarcus Robinson, Daniel Jones, John Ross, Ty Johnson, Raheem Mostert, Nelson Agholor, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and many more. Open your ear holes and enjoy!

Lamar Jackson threw for five touchdowns en route to a 36.6/33.6 point performance on DraftKings/Fanduel, respectively. Mark Ingram rumbled for a pair of touchdowns and registered 25.7/22.7 fantasy points. DeSean Jackson went off in his Philadelphia debut, scorching the Redskins defense for 38.4/31.4 fantasy points. Mark Andrews and Delanie Walker each recorded 20+ point performances at the depleted tight end position. The 49ers defense picked off Jameis Winston for a touchdown not once but twice to lead all fantasy defenses.

You know what all of these players had in common other than their strong outings? They were all a part of my Week 1 DFS guide (sure, Jameis Winston and Adam Humphries were too, but you can’t win them all, right?), and as you can see, I’m humbly enjoying my overall accuracy. It won me some money, and I hope it did the same for you. Let’s do it again!

I’m sure you’ve been wondering, “Why did Donkey Teeth retreat into solitude after executing such a flawless RazzBowl draft?”  The truth is, when you draft the most dominant RazzBowl team in the history of RazzBowl teams drafted by a Donkey hopped up on green juices and hallucinogens, withdrawal is unavoidable.

In the final edition of ADP Risers/Fallers, I’m a buyer. I’m buying a lot. I feel like Jerry Jones (save for Zeke). The fantasy community has done a nice job of analyzing news stories and making appropriate adjustments to their draft boards.

But, as always, there are some things that the fantasy community seems to really like that I’m just not feeling. I’ll share these with you in the hope that during your drafts, most just DAYS away (!!!), you follow along and avoid some guys that shouldn’t have risen as well as scoop up some guys that didn’t deserve to fall.

The first slate of preseason games typically leaves a small mark on fantasy draft rankings. A lot of the big names sit, and a lot of the action reinforces previous thought. However, there were some eye-raising moments throughout Week 1. Lamar Jackson looks primed to throw the ball with more frequency. Sam Darnold looks like he may develop into the star he was drafted to be. And Daniel Jones may very soon be the face of the National Football League after his pristine performance… or not.

Razzbowl 2019 is in the books and it provides a great opportunity to delve into how a strategy can change throughout a single draft. I’m hoping this breakdown can stir up your thought process in your own drafts as everyone is unique. In my mind, the biggest mistake people who play in a single home league or just for fun make is to just draft to rankings/ADP. I spend so little time ranking players. I spend far more time: placing players into tiers, reviewing what I believe the actual NFL teams offenses will look like, how the seasons will go for those teams, coming up with an initial strategy for each individual draft, pinpointing my favorite players to start off the draft from each chunk of draft positions (early/middle/late), and finally matching player value to rounds in the draft. Hopefully that makes sense. To put this idea into simper terms: Many people spend an excessive amount of time worrying about the order in which players like Josh Jacobs, Mark Ingram, and Chris Carson should be picked. I tend to not worry about the actual order, and try to spend more time coming up with what I believe is most likely going to happen with those teams, what could happen with that team, who I’ve drafted before that choice comes up, and just as important… what my plan is the rest of the way if I were to pick each of those players.

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.
