What an odd fantasy football year. By the end of the season there will likely be a single standout player at the 3 major positions in total points for PPR formats (Lamar Jackson, Christian McCaffrey, and Michael Thomas). The quarterback position has true tiers after being streamed for years. Oddly, the majority of the top 10 finishers at the quarterback position likely won’t have been drafted in the top 10, meaning everyone who waited with the intention of streaming made it out unscathed. Even more strange, the running back position seems to have a far higher percentage of players that maintained health and value in comparison to the wide receiver position in rounds 1-3. Frankly, this never happens. This is all made even crazier by the waiver wire being bone dry. It truly has been unlike any season I can remember. We have often heard, or used, the mantra that seasons aren’t won on draft day, but I’m not sure that applies to 2019. After we all win some fantasy championships over the next few weeks, I’ll go into more detail on my thoughts in reviewing the season and how it effects the game moving forward.

I have really been pounding the keyboard this week, but it is a labor of love. Zach will be back next week for all of your start/sit needs, and I have you covered today. The two most disappointing quarterbacks are on a bye along with the season’s WR1, among others. The starts and sits are more crucial than ever as we head into the middle weeks of the fantasy football regular season. Let’s get those wins! We’ll start with quarterbacks.

As the regular fantasy football season moves into its midpoint, we are going to start moving away a bit from clear buy low and sell high players. At this point, we know what we have in most players, so the values have been washed from most deals. For this reason, I will start looking at any players you might want to acquire or sell, no matter the cost.

As trade deadlines approach, we will further configure the article to meet your fantasy needs. So, if you have anything special you would like to see covered, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @EnvisionFF and let me know.

After all, we do these articles for your benefit. Oh, and I would very much appreciate the follows as well. So, there is that.

Hello my lovelies! Welcome back to another rousing rendition of Hit it or Quit it. Sorry I have been AWOL the past two weeks, but the Feds were catching up to me and I had to give them the slip and head off the grid for a while. It is all good. I found some other patsy to take the fall. Men can be so gullible sometimes. How was your Week 5? Mine was sweet. Coming off a horrifically embarrassing Week 4, my Week 5 was one for the record books. The poor bastards I played this week never knew what hit them. Much like Mason Rudolph. I am sure that dude saw his dead grandmother AND Santa after that hit. Being a woman in this world of male-dominated fantasy virgins is a bit complex sometimes, and sure, there have been leagues I have not been invited back to because I won, but what would you expect from a Fantasy Goddess such as myself? Men can have such fragile egos sometimes, yet you all keep coming back to me week after week for me to lay down my wisdom, so you too, can dominate your leagues. I thank you for that.

The real question, who do we not start in this AFC playoff preview? BAL @ KC carries the highest line heading into week 3. Both teams making their second appearance in the weekly Shootout vs Blowout preview, and now fans get the pleasure of viewing both teams on the same field. If you like money, please put a couple of cash DFS lineups together with BAL/KC players sprinkled throughout.

The week 2 slate is my favorite of every season. It offers the best chance for sharp minds to jump on bounce backs players and teams. The public often overvalues a single game sample. Using data to attack these angles involves looking back at 2018, evaluating changes to personnel/coaches, and combining those facts with the week 1 data we have available.

With the start of a new fantasy football season, we start a new year of constantly refreshing Twitter and Rotoworld in hopes that our studs will be upgraded from “Questionable” to “Probable”. It’s a stressful life, which begs the question as to why we do it in the first place.

Each Thursday morning, I’ll be your guide to all the most important injury news in the NFL, and how it’ll affect our fantasy rosters. I’ll also be discussing injuries on the defensive side of the ball, and at non-skill positions, such as Tackles and Guards. If it affects an NFL team, it’ll likely affect us.

ADP Royal Rumble V will feature a trio of WR3s: Robby Anderson, Dede Westbrook and Will Fuller. With an overall ADP separated by 5 picks, choosing from this group is a situation drafters are finding themselves in often. At this point in the draft you should be shooting for full upside, because even if you miss, you’re no worse just streaming and mining the waiver wire.  Now, without further ado, let’s get ready to RUUUUUUUMMMMMBBBBLLLLEEEE!

After 6 seasons and almost 100 million dollars in career earnings, Andrew Luck stole late evening headlines by announcing his retirement at just 29 years old. Personally, I’m pumped that he is preserving his health and moving onto the next chapter of his life. He can enjoy his new marriage and starting a family. Cheers to Captain Neck Beard, but where does this leave Indianapolis on the offensive side of the ball?

The middle of the draft should be a solid mix of guys with a track record of decent production and maybe some riskier high upside guys that may be seeing an increased role or a different scheme that fits their skill set. There will be a mix of players that I have already written about and there will be some new names here as well.

We left off Monday finishing up the fifth round so rounds 6-10 will be covered in this post followed by the rest of the fliers that I like on Friday. Once you’re finished with this post pop on over to my RCL post and grab a spot for your shot at 10 RazzBowl openings that we left open for next season. We still have spots available for each day from August 30th through September 2nd.
