Last week I did 1 potential gem on each AFC team so this week we are moving on to the NFC. Finding value in your fantasy drafts is one of the most important things for you to do as a fantasy owner and I am going to give you some potential gems to target when heading into your drafts. To recap, I am considering a “Gem” as a player that is going in the double digit rounds or later. 1 team on this list will have 2 players as I am unsure of what you guys think on one of the players being considered a late round gem so I will explain when I get to that team. As with all of my lists this is based on half point PPR leagues so keep in mind that some players could be either more valuable or less valuable depending on how your league is set up. Without further ado, lets dive right in. Here is 1 potential fantasy gem for each NFC team! (ADP based on half point PPR 12 team leagues.)Read More
Since I have already done an article on 7 Players to Not Draft in 2019 I figured that I should follow up with the guys that are currently some of my favorites for the upcoming season. These are players that I am planting my flag on for the 2019 season and ones that I am currently doing anything I can to get. This is my list and my list alone so let me know who are your fantasy favorites for the 2019 season and suggest who you think should be on this list. I will, of course, update this as the off-season goes on so that they are up to date for draft season. Lets dive in!Read More
Everyone wants the have the big time receiver to pair with their Quarterback for their fantasy teams. If you have your starting QB in a good matchup and think he will have a good game then having his top WR to pair with him would be even better. Unfortunately, this can be hard to do especially with top fantasy QB’s with elite WR’s. It could be a lot harder to get pairings like Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton or Aaron Rodgers and Devante Adams, but there are some very affordable QB/WR stacks that you can get on your roster and reap the rewards from. Here are 10 affordable QB/WR stacks you can target in your drafts. I will put their current average draft position next to each player so you know where to look for them.Read More
There are a number of ways to be effective as an NFL receiver.
One way is to be able to out-jump any defender and contort your body in mid-air for ridiculous highlight reel catches. We’ll call that the DeAndre Hopkins method.
But for other, less physically-gifted receivers, creating consistent and solid separation is a more fitting option. That’s what the Yards of Separation (SEP) metric measures, the average amount of space a WR is able to create between himself and a defender in his routes.
To help give some context to the sleepers we’ll discuss shortly, here are some of the SEP numbers from some of the league’s top WRs in 2018. The higher the number, the more separation yards created:
Tyreek Hill – 3.1
Davante Adams – 3
Odell Beckham – 3
Adam Thielen – 2.9
Travis Kelce – 2.9
Antonio Brown – 2.6
DeAndre Hopkins – 2.5Read More
Who doesn’t love a bold predictions list? While most don’t pan out it is still fun to look at what analysts think is possible and who they have strong convictions over. I want to do this list to have a little fun and take some shots at what I think is possible by seasons end. I want to stress this point however. I AM NOT factoring in these bold predictions into my rankings or outlooks. While I do see these things as possibilities and think that they very well could come to fruition, I am not going to advise everyone to take them at face value. For instance if I say a WR could finish top 10 that doesn’t mean that I will have them ranked there. It will be close I am in the market of helping fantasy owners not hurting them with a prediction that could end up being off base. With that said lets have some fun and make some bold predictions!Read More
