5 QBs to Target Late in Fantasy Football Drafts

5 QBs to Target Late in Fantasy Football Drafts

Chris Meaney shares his 2017 QB Rankings from 11-20. Can Carson Wentz jump into QB1 territory this season? What is the strategy when it comes to 2-QB leagues? Is Andy Dalton primed for a big Fantasy Football season? Is Derek Carr worth the early pick?   For the second straight year, the consensus feeling is to wait until round 8 or later to draft a quarterback. There's a cluster of QB's going near each other, including Kirk Cousins , Jameis Winston , and Marcus Mariota m but there are also a large number of QB's going even later worth a look. Philip Rivers (10.03/112/QB14) - Phillip Rivers throws for a lot of yards, a lot of touchdowns, and a lot of interceptions. Fortunately for us fantasy football players, interceptions are not weighted heavily enough to be a severe downside of a guy like Rivers. Rivers never misses a game, and has finished as a top 10 fantasy quarterback every year since 2010, excluding 2012. Despite possibly losing rookie WR Mike Williams

Who Should You Take With The 1st Overall Pick?

Who Should You Take With The 1st Overall Pick?

Pat Mayo, Garion Thorne & Tim Anderson debate the Top 3 Running Backs for the 2017 Season. In case you weren't aware, the 1st overall pick in a fantasy draft is pretty important. Whoever you take here is the most critical player on your team, as they could make or break your fantasy season. Looking ahead to 2017, who is worthy of a first overall pick? I've seen many names floating around, including David Johnson , Le'Veon Bell , and Ezekiel Elliott . In my opinion, however, Ezekiel Elliott should not be taken 1st overall. So, who should you take, DJ or Bell? Let's take a look. The first option is David Johnson. Since taking over the reigns as starter for Arizona in late 2015, Johnson has averaged almost 20 fantasy points per game. He's one of the few running backs in the league with no sign of a backup RB stealing touches from him. While he did suffer a leg injury that looked awful at first sight, but reports have said that he's 100% ready to go.

Is Matt Ryan Due For Regression in 2017?

Is Matt Ryan Due For Regression in 2017?

Pat Mayo, Chris Meaney & Tim Anderson debate Mayo’s first incarnation of his 2017 QB Rankings. (12:30 for Matt Ryan debate) A common candidate for regression in the fantasy universe is Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan . After putting up historically good numbers in 2016 and making it to the Super Bowl, many people expect Ryan to take a step back in 2017 and suffer a "Super Bowl Hangover." Surprisingly, "Super Bowl Hangovers" are a real thing amongst quarterbacks. Just take Cam Newton , for example. The Panthers made the Super Bowl during the 2015-2016 season, but lost. During that season, Newton scored the most fantasy points in the league. In the 2016-2017 season, Newton did not live up to his draft position of QB1, finishing as QB15, despite missing just one game. Heading into 2017, many people believe Matt Ryan will have a similar season to Cam Newton. A big reason for Ryan's success was evidently OC Kyle Shanahan. He's widely regarded as the be

Making The Case To Draft LeSean McCoy 5th Overall

Making The Case To Draft LeSean McCoy 5th Overall

Continuing his series of NFL Team Previews, Gabe stays in the AFC East. He takes a look at the Buffalo Bills and their forecast for the 2017 season. Bills run game talk at 5:30) When LeSean McCoy is healthy, he is an elite half back. He's the most elusive back in the league, and can rack up fantasy points in a hurry with his big play ability. Since he began starting in 2010, he's been an RB1 every year when he plays 14+ games. In his first season in Buffalo, he finished as RB3 overall. He had 13 touchdowns, even with the TD-vulture Mike Gillislee there (he rushed for 8 touchdowns in 2016). Buffalo was a rushing machine in 2016, rushing the 2nd most times, rushing for the most yards, the most touchdowns, and the most first downs. The vast majority of this was done by the duo of Shady McCoy and Gillislee. Now, Gillislee is gone, and McCoy will see many more goal line looks. As I said earlier, LeSean had 13 rushing touchdowns in 2016, so he could quite possibly have

Debating Tyreek Hill

Debating Tyreek Hill

Gabe Morency continues his series of 2017 NFL Team Previews by taking a look at the Kansas City. Tyreek Hill rant at 2:00     Tyreek Hill has proved to be a pretty polarizing player in the fantasy community. It seems as if you have to be in one of two camps: Hill is going to be a top 15 WR in 2017 or a complete bust. I had my own preconceptions and expectations coming into my research and what I found was pretty interesting. Hill has documented domestic abuse issues off the field that I tried very hard to leave out of my analysis. In honesty, I almost never draft Hill because I don't enjoy rooting for him. I also certainly don't have any issues with owners who love what he brought to the table last season. In the effort of fairness, I'm going to paint you a picture for each side of the argument. I'll present reasons for Hill to be a dynamo and also not worth drafting. At the end, you the reader decide which side you believe. So let's dive into just how susta

3 Rookie RBs to Target Late in Fantasy Football Drafts

3 Rookie RBs to Target Late in Fantasy Football Drafts

The RotoExperts discuss whether or not Spencer Ware will be passed on the depth chart by Kareem Hunt this season. In the past few years, there have been multiple rookie running backs who proved to be vital fantasy options. In 2015, Devonta Freeman and Todd Gurley were weekly starters who could have won you your league. In 2016, Ezekiel Elliott was an elite fantasy option. Heading into 2017, there are various rookies who could be fantasy options, including Leonard Fournette, Chrstian McCaffrey, and Joe Mixon. But, who is being drafted late that could turn into an RB1, like Jordan Howard in 2016? Kareem Hunt (RB37/8.09/91) - Kareem Hunt is being severely undervalued. Yes, I know he is currently the backup to Spencer Ware. But as we all saw in 2016, Ware was not the ideal back in Kansas City. Another positive element about Hunt being the backup is how different they play. Ware is a powerful trucking back, while Hunt is an elusive, pass catching back (41 catches in 13 games in his s

4 WR's To Target In The Late Rounds

4 WR's To Target In The Late Rounds

The RotoExperts discuss the emergence of Mike Wallace in Baltimore last season and whether or not he can build off his 2016 success now that Jeremy Maclin has been added to the roster. (Mike Wallace chatter at 6:10) . Every year, the wide receivers I have stored on my bench are key components of my team. Whether that's filling in for a starter who isn't playing, becoming a key trade asset, or even overtaking my original starters, my bench WR's are a bunch that I know I need to nail during my draft. Here are a few names I'll be targeting in 2017. Mike Wallace (WR49/11.04/127) -  In 2016,  Dennis Pitta , Steve Smith Sr., Kamar Aiken , and Kyle Juszczyk totaled 315 targets. They gone. Baltimore added Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead , but they obviously will not take up all of those targets. That leaves more targets for Mike Wallace, who has already been a top-30 WR every year in his career, not including a 2015 season riddled with injuries. Wallace is

The Los Angeles Dodgers lost their top pitching prospect, Julio Urias, to shoulder surgery early this month. However, they have seen the meteoric rise of Scott Barlow since the beginning of May. Over his last 10 starts, Barlow has compiled 72 strikeouts in 59.1 innings pitched. His walk rate is a little higher than you would like, but he has allowed just 30 hits and 2 home runs since May 6th. Your browser does not support iframes.
