Much noise has been made in fantasy circles about the Arizona Cardinals and the potential for a new-look, explosive offense in 2019. Some of the reasons to be excited for what Kliff Kingsbury will bring to the NFL were discussed in part 1 . Despite a lackluster 2018, David Johnson has seen his ADP remain at RB5/6 and Kyler Murray is being taken as a low end QB1 in the 8th round of redraft. A rookie QB has not been drafted that high since Robert Griffin III in 2011. But what about the pass catchers? Despite enthusiasm surrounding the offense in general, the beneficiaries of a supposed top 12 QB are not reaping rewards as it pertains to ADP. This is a gross mistake on the part of preseason drafters. To see this, it is helpful to refer to a chart of WR production in a Kingsbury offense:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes relationships grow cold. At the beginning of a relationship: you get butterflies in your stomach, you want to pick up every check, and you always want to be around that person. As time goes on, little annoyances start to happen. You start to notice some flaws. Your patience gets a little shorter even if […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The AFC North takes the crown for most intriguing fantasy division heading in to 2019. With so many names to cover, I will jump right in. If you missed my NFC North preview last week, peep it here. Each week I preview key fantasy players, division-by-division, leading us to the start of pre-season games. Next […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yes, it is the middle of June and you are reading a fantasy football article. Let us be honest with ourselves though, the NBA and NHL Finals are both within a week of crowing its champ. Baseball still has 100 games left and is the only thing helping pass time before NFL kickoff. Well maybe […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

But the hard work doesn’t stop here, so let’s talk about Week 14 and the great games that are on tap tomorrow afternoon! Let’s get to it! *Note* – My Week […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week is a play in week for a lot of readers, so it can be looked at as an extra playoff week. I certainly have a couple of leagues that I am looking to make a final push to snag a spot in the post season, including our writer’s league. It’s not looking great thanks to Michael Thomas disappearing on Thursday night. But hey, miracles happen.

Danny Amendola, WR, Knee: Amendola struggled with this injury last week to produce his worst fantasy game of the year. He didn’t practice on Wednesday so things are not looking good. My take: Will play, bench him. 1 catch for 13 yards was all he managed with this same injury.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Absconding in solitude to a Southern Colorado cave for the past two weeks, I pondered the universe, those delicious Totino’s pizza rolls, and of course, the next great buy for your fantasy football team. Entranced in the depths of transcendental meditation that would make The Buddha blush, two syllables appeared in the ether over and over. Tre – Quan, Tre – Quan, Tre – Quan. The universe has spoken and Tre’Quan Smith must be acquired at once. The third round rookie out of Central Florida is a WR4 for now, but top 20 WR numbers for the rest of this season are well within the realm of possibilities with Ted Ginn out for the year. Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy football:Please, blog, may I have some more?
The start of this week had no RB value and it just looked like a stuff Gurley, Zeek and McCaffrey into lineups week, but that’s the fun of the NFL. We saw the Browns make a good trade and get rid of Hyde to let Chubb and Duke run wild (though i’m still skeptical that coaching staff can figure out how to use those two). Theo Riddick is out, opening up Kerryon Johnson as a 3-down back and I became way more OK with Peyton Barber value as the week progressed. All this value opening up combined with a lot of the elite RBs not being on the main slate means that we might, for the first time, all season, have a WR in the flex and win the million dollars. So while normally I’d say if you’re rolling a WR in flex in FanDuel GPPs, it’s 100% wrong, the lack of stone cold locks at RB this week means you can probably get away with a WR and in fact you could conceivably place high and maybe even win. But if one or two of the value RBs go off, you’re going to need them and odds are your WR-as-flex GPP is in a boatload of trouble.Please, blog, may I have some more?
While it is true that you cannot spell ‘elite’ without ‘eli’, we all know that Eli Manning is NOT elite. That was just atrocious to watch on a Thursday night. Pat Shurmur looked like he was going to kill somebody when Eli kept checking down to RB’s. But let’s move away from that atrocity of a game and focus on 4 games with some big fantasy implications this week…Please, blog, may I have some more?
