Week 15 Fantasy Football Rankings: QB, WR, TE

Did the injury to Robert Griffin III or Dez Bryant or Percy Harvin ruin your prospects for winning a playoff game in Week 15!?! Let’s hope not. Hopefully, you are checking out the Week 15 Fantasy Football Rankings from several different sites. It’s always good to get several opinions from people you trust. Also, remember that writers are getting a ton of questions/tweets from owners wanting to double-check their lineup decisions with so much riding on the line. So just be patient with them, and understand they’re getting overrun a bit. Speaking of Griffin, his chances of breaking Fantasy records is officially in doubt now. I explain what I mean, here: Is RG3 the Best Fantasy Rookie QB Ever?. And then there are several other rookie quarterbacks that are playing well, too. Speaking of rookies, don’t forget to check out the 2013 Fantasy Rookies draft. West Virginia’s Geno Smith will be trying to become the next stud rookie quarterback! And I posted the first round of a 2013 Fantasy Football Mock Draft that you might find...

2013 Fantasy Rookies Draft: Rd 1 for Dynasty Leagues

2013 Fantasy Rookies Draft: Rd 1 for Dynasty Leagues

The fine gentlemen over at the website DynastyLeagueFootball.com agreed to write a piece for our site that detailed what the first round of the 2013 Fantasy Rookies draft might look like. We know how much the 2012 Fantasy Rookies helped owners out, especially Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and Doug Martin. Paymon Shokoohi did a great job with it, I think you’ll agree, and we both hope this gives you great insight on what to expect from the next rookie class. With the 2012 Fantasy Football season coming to a close, it’s time for dynasty league owners to focus on molding their rosters for next season. That means it’s time to evaluate the available talent among the 2013 Fantasy rookies. This year’s class has quickly become infamous for being a down year for talent. So much so, many dynasty owners are looking to sell their picks. And just like the real world, when the market floods with too many “for sale” signs, it becomes a buyer’s market. One piece of advice, go with the flow of your fellow league mates and downplay the talent and see if you can devalue the picks until they become bargains. Now let’s look to the draft pool. While it’s true this year’s pool is a bit down, it isn’t so much so that there isn’t talent to be had. In fact, after studying the talent all year long, I can say the only thing down is the running back pool. There are no sure bets at starting running backs, especially after Marcus Lattimore’s severe knee injury. However, there is starting running back potential. As for the rest of the pool, this class as a whole is not that far off from last year’s class. All you have to do is cherry pick the talent. Top 60 Overall | QB | RB | WR | TE | K | DST | Rookies   2013 Mock Draft Round ONE – Round TWO   Here’s an early look at the pool of prospects:   2013 Fantasy Rookies: First Round (* Denotes Underclassmen) 1.

Everybody Wins with ‘Fantasy Cares’ Program

Everybody Wins with ‘Fantasy Cares’ Program

It’s time to put our Fantasy money where our heart is with the Fantasy Cares program. My buddies over at RotoExperts.com partnered up last month with a company called Snoball, to create a program called, “Fantasy Cares,” which raises money for select non-profit organizations. What does that mean to you? It means you can play some Fantasy Football and do some good for some needy charities. And the interesting part about this is – the better you do, the more that gets donated! Fantasy Sports, for the most part, is a narcissistic exercise already. Consider that playing Fantasy Football or Fantasy Baseball is you trying to prove to everyone else that you know more about that sport than your counterparts. Well now, you can feel better about trying to be more awesome than everyone else! “The combination of RotoExperts’ reach along with Snoball’s unique technology has created an entirely new, fun and creative way for people to give,” said Louis M. Maione, CEO of RotoExperts. “There isn’t a more gratifying thing I can possibly do as CEO of RotoExperts than to harness the power and popularity of Fantasy Sports and direct it towards philanthropy.” Who Does “Fantasy Cares” Help? For the rest of the 2012 NFL season, people that play on RotoExperts’ Fantasy Football game will create charitable donations that will go to the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, which provides medical, dental and financial assistance to retired NFL players in need. Is there a better way to thank the NFL players that gave us great memories over the past few decades than to try to use your Fantasy Football prowess to get them some much-needed medical care. It seems like every week we’re hearing stories about how the NFL is slacking on helping former NFL players that are down on their luck or having some medical difficulties due to their years on the gridiron. What Can You Win – Besides a Larger Heart!?! The other great part to this whole setup  is that participants are also able to win some pretty cool prizes, like a signed football from Super Bowl  XLV. I love to collect sports memorabilia, and this signed football will have a ton of great NFL signatures, including Mike...

Getting Ready For Fantasy Football Playoffs

Getting Ready For Fantasy Football Playoffs

So you’ve managed to navigate the wavy seas of the Fantasy Football regular season — complete with its mandatory bye weeks, surprise injuries and variety of other pitfalls — and made it into the playoffs. Congratulations! The real work is about to begin. The natural temptation is to simply employ the same managerial strategy that got you here, which is not necessarily a bad idea. That being said, a game in the Fantasy Football playoffs should be researched and scrutinized a bit more than a regular season affair. After all, it’s really only the playoffs that matter, and here are a few tips to help you succeed. Fantasy Football Playoffs Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has done Fantasy owners just fine this season, but diligent fans noticed that backup Jacquizz Rodgers got a large helping of touches in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. This suggests that the Falcons may be pulling the reins back on their primary horse in hopes of preserving him for a postseason run. Philadelphia Eagles newcomer Bryce Brown only has a tiny fraction of the experience of a back such as Turner, but his motivation levels are through the roof, given the fact that starting running back LeSean McCoy will likely be out for the rest of the year. The Fantasy Football playoffs kiss of death is mistakenly starting a player that ends up sitting down in a preemptive move for the playoffs, so be sure to be on top of the news in the hours leading up to the kickoffs. Injured by Association Most Fantasy owners approach injuries in a pretty straightforward sense. If a player is questionable or doubtful, the best move is to put him on the bench for that week. But what about players whom that player depends upon being questionable, doubtful or even ruled out? Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is a powerful grinder that eats up yardage and compiles statistics, but take away one or two of his stellar offensive linemen and his production decreases dramatically.The same goes for wide receivers and quarterbacks. A banged up offensive line is a recipe for an unproductive offense that does not produce numbers sufficient to win games in the Fantasy...
