2014 Tight Ends To Target

The tight end position is as deep as it ever has been and there is plenty of value to be found, but there are a few tight ends that stand out to me as special values this year. If you're not willing to draft Jimmy Graham in the first round or spend an early round pick on an injury risk like Rob Gronkowski, then this post is for you. Expecting any tight end to step in to the Jimmy Graham tier … [Read more...]

Fantasy News and Notes – July 28, 2014

Ray Rice, Baltimore Ravens – In case you didn’t hear the NFL unleashed a punishment on Ray Rice that he’ll "never forget"… two whole games. Clearly we shouldn’t mess with Roger Goodell or he’ll drop the hammer. If he does it again it’s no dessert for a week. All personal feelings aside, Rice and his fantasy owners really dodged a bullet here and he should move up in draft rankings … [Read more...]

2014 Wide Receivers To Target

I'm sure you've noticed by now that the NFL is now a passing league and out of all positions in the league this year wide receiver is by far the deepest position of them all and there's a ton of value. As much as I would love to have a top tier receiver like Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas or A.J. Green, you can wait a little while on receiver and still have great value so if you have a … [Read more...]

2014 Running Backs To Target

I have to be honest, after last year's historic running back collapse, I find it hard to trust running backs at all this year. The top 4 backs in our running back rankings are no brainers (or as much of a no brainer as RB's can be these days) but after that tier I don’t love this year’s crop of RB's much at all. Instead I’ve been tinkering with a wide receiver heavy draft strategy for most of … [Read more...]

2014 Quarterbacks To Target

Two weeks ago we rolled out our 2014 quarterback rankings where I listed my top 30 overall signal callers, but just because they’re good enough to be on my list doesn’t mean I want them all on my team. For example there's no way I'm spending a first round pick on Peyton Manning, and the same goes for Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers as well. It's not because I don't like them... they're all … [Read more...]

2014 Backup Running Back Rankings

The running back position is extremely fickle with backs coming out of nowhere to become some of fantasy football’s elite players (and vice versa), that’s why it’s vital to draft as many high upside backs as possible on draft day, and be aware of team’s depth charts throughout the season. To help with this, we’ve rolled out a list of running back handcuffs that we'll keep updated throughout … [Read more...]

Top 100 Overall

Our 2014 position by position rankings are now complete, and if you missed any of them you can find the full list here. Now it's time to rack and stack them all and give you our top 100 players ranking. again the elite running backs top our 2014 overall rankings, but unlike previous years where the first two to three rounds were chock full of RB's, the NFL has become a pass first league and … [Read more...]

2014 Rookie Rankings

In fantasy football (and fantasy sports in general) rookies are almost always overhyped because everyone wants to play with the shiny new toy. Fantasy owners want to show their friends how smart they were by drafting the next big breakout star when nobody knew who they were. Unfortunately stats have shown that rookies are more likely to fall flat on their faces than they are to take off and for … [Read more...]

2014 Kicker Rankings

And now the most anticipated position in our 2014 Player Rankings… Kickers! In every fantasy football league there’s a guy who drafts kickers too early, especially if they’re new to the game. Having a great kicker can give you a big advantage but kickers fluctuate more than any other position so trying to figure out who is going to be tops can be maddening. Really the only things I look for is … [Read more...]

2014 Team Defense Rankings

A good defense can make a huge difference for your fantasy team but these days defenses can go from being terrible one year to great the next (and vice versa) in the blink of an eye. Two years ago the Chiefs defense was terrible - a team you hoped all your offensive starters were matched up against. Last year they finished the year as the top overall D/ST in most formats. Fantasy defenses … [Read more...]
