KEEPING AHEAD: High Fives with MJ

WR Henry Ruggs Las Vegas

The mess just keeps coming. Dak Prescott out. Le’veon cut. A.J. Green quit. More positive tests shutting down facilities – currently the Atlanta Falcons (and their opponent, the Vikings) are the latest potential COVID-impacted teams. Like I said, it’s a ...

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 6

WR Darius Slayton, NYG

The Giants have the perfect recipe for fantasy success for a wideout – their defense is horrid, they have no running game, the competing wideouts are not good, but just good enough to warrant some coverage by opposing defenses, and, while it can be argued this isn’t wonderful, Daniel Jones loves to throw to him.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 5

WR_A_J_Green_CIN_1

With his skills declining at age 32, I suspect that A.J. Green knows the team is phasing him out of the offense. I also suspect he’ll have the world’s slowest healing hamstring. Dump Green and get another player with some value before it’s too late.

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 5

RB James Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

COVID running all over the NFL, but the rookies don’t care! Remember – these are players who your keeper/dynasty teams should absolutely be prioritizing for immediate use and future production in the coming years. Let’s get going. James Robinson – ...

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 4

RB James Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

I’m going to try not to mince words here. James Robinson is the keeper target of the year so far. This is James Conner, David Johnson, Alvin Kamara – the player that no one knows, that was drafted super late or not at all, that will become a keeper top-15 running back for years to come.

KEEPING AHEAD: Trade Season Tips

RB Myles Gaskin MIA

Given the amount I write about Florida teams in these articles (see Laviska Shenault, James Robinson, Preston Williams, and the demise of Ronald Jones) you would think I bought a big honkin’ Cadillac, put on some aqua-colored polyester pants, and moved into a planned community these days.

KEEPING AHEAD: Numbers Are Dumb

RB Raheem Mostert SF

On paper, this seems fantastic, and if you started Mostert (I did!) you were rewarded with a big fantasy output far higher than his draft stock would have suggested. But the numbers don’t really tell the full story.

KEEPING AHEAD: Week 1 – Setting Your Lineup

WR Christian Kirk ARI & CB Casey Hayward LAC

Frankly, setting your lineup each week is a stress-inducing, second-guessing forming nightmare that will either leave you shouting your genius or lamenting your every decision come Sunday. Do you play the guy on Thursday? Which RB2 do you sit? This quarterback or that quarterback???

KEEPING AHEAD: Keeper League Prospecting in 2020

WR Darius Slayton, NYG

In his final seven games as a rookie, Slayton absolutely exploded, nabbing 31 catches for 467 yards and five touchdowns. These are hard numbers to ignore, and left simply with that, and the budding relationship with Daniel Jones, and you have enough of a reason to invest in him long term.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 12

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_2

If Dak Prescott’s hot streak is to continue, he’s going to have to earn it, as his upcoming schedule includes a road game against that powerful New England defense next Sunday before following that up with a home game against another tough defense in Buffalo.

FLAVOR OF THE WEEK: Derrius Guice, RB, Washington

RB Derrius Guice WAS

The Redskins travel to Buffalo this week before going on bye and all reports indicate Guice intends to return after the bye week and the Redskins only have incentive to deploy him to his full extent. Week 11 will present the perfect opportunity to give Guice the keys and evaluate him for next year’s purposes.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 8

Tight End Hunter Henry San Diego Chargers

A new type of ranking system for a new breed of fantasy football players … the New Age Rankings. These rankings are strictly performance based, so players who have not played in at least one game (and produced stats) are not listed here.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 2

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Through two weeks, Mixon has 17 carries for just 27 yards, and only five receptions for 17 yards, and has yet to reach the end zone. Cincinnati has road games against Buffalo and Pittsburgh coming up before returning home to host Arizona. If Mixon’s numbers don’t dramatically improve by then, you’ll want to see if you can find a trade partner.

RED-ZONE: A Final Look at 2018

RB James White NE

Red Zone statistics can be a valuable tool if used correctly.  Obviously, the teams with better offenses will have more opportunities and we can use this data to exploit certain match-ups or identify players that could be overlooked while looking ...

5 UP/5 DOWN: Stock Watch – Week 1

RB Chris Carson SEA

Chris Carson averaged over 4.6 yards per carry in his first two seasons in the NFL and his fantasy performances last year were impressive. He finished as the RB15 for the year, but over the course of the last six weeks, he was the RB11 and won a lot of people leagues in Weeks 12-16 where he was the RB5.

FANTASY IMPACT: The Affect Of Player Movement

RB James Conner PIT

The Steelers already had to cover for the absence of Le’Veon Bell last year and knew he would not be an option for 2019. That leaves James Conner as the starter that rolled up nearly 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns last year. But, Jaylen Samuels was also effective filling in for three games when Conner was injured.

BREAKOUT PLAYERS: Part 5 – AFC NORTH

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

In Part 5 of my 8-part series into fantasy football's breakout stars for 2019, we move on from the NFC conference and dive straight into the state of the AFC. We will start our journey with one the roughest divisions in all of football; the daunting AFC North.

BREAKOUT PLAYERS: Part 1 – NFC North

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Jones firmly supplanted himself as the lead dog in Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers led offense down the stretch in 2018. Rodgers indeed noticed as well, as the team made him a focal point of the offense the last 7 games to the tune of 17 touches per game.

NFL DRAFT TOP 5 BY POSITION: Defense

LB Devin White LSU

Devin White is arguably one of the best athletes in this draft regardless of position. And that athleticism shows up on the field which is why he is my top ranked linebacker. He absolutely flies all over the field, making plays in the run game. White is also one of the best linebackers in coverage and will be able to match up very well with NFL tight ends right away.

NFL DRAFT: Two Round Mock Draft

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Kyler Murray is the undisputed No. 1 pick, no matter what anyone says. Coach Kliff Kingsbury is familiar with Murray and he is going to start his rebuild of forging the Cardinals to fit his offense, of which Murray will be the focal point. The question we should really be asking, is where will Josh Rosen land?

NFL DRAFT TOP-5 BY POSITION: Offense

RB Josh Jacobs Alabama

Josh Jacobs is clearly the best running back in this draft class. He isn't a home-run hitter or huge big play guy, but he has all the tools to be successful in the NFL. He runs with a mean streak and is very powerful after initiating the contact with defenders.

NFL DRAFT TEAM PREVIEW: NFC West

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

Every team has needs, a draft board and a plan of attack when it comes to the NFL Draft. As we get closer to the draft, I will take a look at each teams needs and whom they could be targeting. And now last, but not least, the NFC West.
