Was Drafting Aaron Jones a Mistake?

A disastrous Week One can often ruin a players morale, especially if they are incredibly hyped up. I was personally never big on Aaron Jones. His high ADP and status as a RB2 is really puzzling. He suffers from the hype brought on by high ceiling with good, but minimal flashes of that potential. These tend to be players who are becoming starters after one or two years of being a role player. Aaron Jones is the Packers full-time starter this season which means more carries, and more pressure. So, should Aaron Jones owners be panicking after a disappointing performance? Or is this a one off game where neither offenses could get moving. Let’s discuss!

What College Produces the Best Fantasy Football Team?

Week 1 of the 2019 college football season is in the books with week 2 just on the horizon and everything so far is pointing towards it being another exciting season of college students spending their Saturdays colliding into one another. Now some of these players will one day get paid for their efforts and play in the NFL. So, naturally I end up asking which school produces the best players which then leads to asking which has the best team which then makes me create rosters on Madden and other football games to find out, but why not find out by measuring their in-game production? Well, I did just that a few years ago when I made a fantasy league of teams made up of players from the same college and this year I decided to bring it back and share it with everyone. Now, how about I give you the rundown on the league, or should I say leagues, I’ve created.

3 Running Backs Drafted Outside the Top 12 That Will Finish Inside the Top 12 In 2019

In 2018 four of the top twelve running backs by ADP did not finish in the top twenty Running Backs to end the season, and there were eight running backs that were drafted outside the top twenty that did. Finding a great RB can add the value you need to beat the competition in your league. Here are three Running Backs to target that are currently being drafted outside the top twelve that can be the catalyst to your fantasy roster.

Draftkings/Fanduel Thursday Night Preview

Football is finally back and the first game of the year is a good one. It features last year surprise team the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packers. When playing DFS rather its Fan Duel or Draftkings or one of the many other sites it always pays to have an edge. It could be a little known stat, an injury or illness that happens right before kickoff or any other small detail.

3 Week 1 Waiver Wire Stashes – 2019 Fantasy Football

The 2019 Fantasy Football season has finally arrived, kickoff is just a two days away. While many fantasy owners have been put on cruise control after their draft heading into week 1, you just like actual NFL teams, should be looking at the waiver wire to see which players could help your roster in the future. There is no rule that after your draft is complete you cannot pick guys up off the waiver wire until week 1 is complete. So, you being an active manager and taking a look early on could lead you to find some absolute steels. We are going to be using Yahoo’s ownership percentages and discussing 3 players we think you should stash on your bench if you have the depth to do so…

What To Do With The Chiefs Backfield After Signing LeSean McCoy

The Saturday before week 1 is always crazy and some big named player gets cut. This year is was LeSean McCoy. McCoy was cut from the Buffalo Bills which was something I have been saying all offseason. I will admit I thought he would go to either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Houston Texans. McCoy ended up signing a 1 year deal $3 million guaranteed with the Kansas City Chiefs…

David Johnson Fantasy Outlook

When you think of David Johnson, you think, “wow he was so good during that 2016 season!” After though, you then think “wow he screwed me in 2017… and disappointed me in 2018.” 2019 is a new season, and for Johnson, things should start point back up to the good times. We are here to breakdown David Johnson, and how he could be back as one of the top running backs in fantasy by the end of the season…

Is Kerryon Johnson Worth His Draft Price?

There’s something going on in fantasy leagues all around the world. Former second round pick Kerryon Johnson is getting drafted VERY high. Currently sitting at a 3.04 ADP in most 12 team leagues, Johnson is primed as one of the best backs to have on your team in 2019. However, this hype has seemingly come out of no where. So, is Johnson worthy of his ADP? Or is he over-hyped for his position? Let’s take a look at what to expect from Kerryon Johnson in 2019…

3 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Target in 2019

The tight end position was a wasteland in 2018. If you did not have one of the top three guys you where in trouble. For example Trey Burton finished as the number 7 tight end in .5 ppr leagues. If you had Trey Burton on your team in 2018 you were not happy with him on your team. In this article we take a look at three tight ends that you can grab late and if they hit they could win you a championship…

3 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Sleepers to Target in 2019

Wide receivers tend to be a position you can stack up on late and find off the waiver wire and more times then not be okay and have a good core. When you are drafting a wide receiver later in your draft it is all about finding that hidden gem. In this article we will discuss three wide receivers who are going in the 9th round or later that are being slept on and could be that hidden gem you were looking for…
