Eclipse Your Competition During Fantasy Football Drafts

Eclipse Your Competition During Fantasy Football Drafts

This Monday, August 21, 2017, we will get to experience an eclipse of the sun. The path of totality will allow you to see a total solar eclipse - and will also help you win your fantasy football drafts! The moon will cover the sun, allowing us to see the solar corona, while drinking a iced cold Corona (with a lime of course). From Oregon to South Carolina, people will stop working to gaze at the eclipse, similar to the way we attack the waiver wire on Tuesdays, while at our desks, once the season begins.  Follow along on the path below to eclipse your competition in fantasy football drafts over the next few weeks. As injuries continue to pile up and position battles are won, it can be a daunting challenge to keep up with the latest depth chart moves.  Let the Gridiron Experts do the work for you and bookmark their 2017 NFL Depth Chart page!  The Houston Texans are a prime example of why this page is so important.  WR2 Will Fuller is out with a collarbone injury, keeping him o

5 Volume Heavy Guys To Target Late in Fantasy Football Draft

5 Volume Heavy Guys To Target Late in Fantasy Football Draft

In fantasy football, it's important to touch the football. How many times a particular player touches the football factors into their ADP. Other things that factor into ADP include upside and their supporting cast. For some guys, they have the touches, but not necessarily a strong surrounding cast or much upside. However, that doesn't mean they aren't solid acquisitions for your bench that could start against a bad team. There are plenty of players like this. Paul Perkins (6.04/66/RB28) Ben McAdoo is committed to having a sole workhorse RB, and Perkins is his guy. He has some upside, but I mainly like him because if he's getting the expected amount of touches, he can be at least a RB2. The Giants are solid between the tackles, with guys like Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg helping Perkins out.  In his only game with 20 attempts last year, week 17, Perkins rushed for 102 yards against the Redskins. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry over the final 5 weeks of t

Fantasy Football QB Draft Strategy

Fantasy Football QB Draft Strategy

Corey, Matt, and Jake discuss the passing attempt leaders heading into the 2017 NFL season. Including: Drew Brees, Joe Flacco, Blake Bortles, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Wentz, and Kirk Cousins The quarterback position scores more points than any other position in fantasy football. Common sense would tell you that quarterbacks are among the first players off the board in live drafts. However, that isn't the case at all. In fact, the RB1, WR1, and even TE1 are off the board before the QB1. Considering there were only about 2 PPG between QB6 and QB16, it's a smart move to wait on your quarterback and solidify other areas of your roster first. There are certain situations, though, where it makes sense to draft one of the Big 3 (Rodgers, Brady, and Brees). 2017 Fantasy Football QB Rankings Aaron Rodgers , Tom Brady , and Drew Brees are in a league of their own. You have to go back to 2004 to find a year when one of them weren't in the top 3 scorers. Discounting some o

5 Post-Hype Sleepers To Target In Fantasy Football Drafts

5 Post-Hype Sleepers To Target In Fantasy Football Drafts

Some of you may be asking yourself what a post-hype sleeper is. A post-hype sleeper is somebody who was projected as a sleeper in 2016 and did not pan out. In 2017, however, this is the proper year they will play well. Post-hype sleepers typically rocket down draft boards because people were disappointed in their previous year. A rule of thumb for me is to always have at least one post-hype sleeper on my squad. This year, there are plenty of post-hype sleepers who are going way lower in 2017 than 2016. Lamar Miller (2.12/25/RB13) - Last year, it seemed like the entire world thought that Lamar Miller had elite talent. He finished the year going at 1.08. And yes, he disappointed. He finished the year as RB17. Towards the end of the year, he was strangely shut down for the regular season with a shoulder injury. He only played 14 games. Had he played the full year, Miller would've finished with about 1,441 yards and 7 touchdowns. Had he put up those numbers, Miller would hav

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Suspended Six Games by the NFL

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Suspended Six Games by the NFL

NFL Commisioner, Roger Goodell, has suspended Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott for six games!  This suspension is in response to multiple domestic violence claims against him by his girlfriend. The suspension comes as a result of an investigation that started more than a year ago after an ex-girlfriend accused Elliott of domestic violence in Columbus, Ohio. The Columbus City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information," but the NFL can penalize a player even without legal charges. - ESPN As we noted in our NFL DFS Week 1 salary post , DraftKings was ready for this when the priced Darren McFadden , so this comes as no surprise.  What it does is make it nearly impossible to select him in redraft league drafts that are taking place in the next few weeks as he will appeal the suspension.  Anything outside of the 3rd or 4th round is what you will likely see, but I wou

Bills Trade WR Sammy Watkins to Rams

Bills Trade WR Sammy Watkins to Rams

Exit Sammy Watkins, enter Jordan Matthews. A pair of trades leaves the @buffalobills with a new #1 WR for 2017. pic.twitter.com/79ABhSnFVX — SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) August 11, 2017 The Buffalo Bills have traded WR Sammy Watkins to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 2nd round pick.  The Bills filled the void by acquring Jordan Matthews ( and a 2018 3rd round pick) from the Philadelphia Eagles in a separate trade, for CB Ronald Darby . After playing in all 16 games as a rookie, Watkins missed 3 games in is sophomore season and was limited to just 8 games last year.  Buffalo selected him 4th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft and were going to have to decided whether or not to sign him to a contract as his rookie deal expires after this year.  Now that is LA's problem. The Bills weren't set up to win the AFC East anytime soon, especially with Tom Brady still around.  They now have two 1st, 2nd & 3rd round picks in next years draft. His fa
