Early Fantasy Football 2014 QB Rankings

The dust has barely settled on your 2013 Fantasy Football championship trophy, and you’re already looking for 2014 QB rankings!?! You’re a sicko. You’re demented. You’re my kind of Fantasy Football player! So we’re looking at several months before we really know where all of the players end up playing in 2014, but there likely won’t be too many jersey changes among quarterbacks. One of the biggest free agents at the position was Bears QB Jay Cutler, and he signed a seven-year deal the day after New Year’s Day. Cutler’s backup, however, stands to make some good coin, as Josh McCown will test the free-agent waters before deciding if he should stay a backup with Chicago. The 34-year-old veteran out of Sam Houston State would be a stop-gap option for a team with playoff hopes and a young signal-caller. He could also serve as a high-priced backup behind an oft-injured stud...

1 Man, 5-Round, Early 2014 Fantasy Football Mock Draft

Is it ever too early to look at a 2014 Fantasy Football mock draft!?! We’re into the new year, and we’re ready to put the 2013 season behind us. Whether you won last season, finished in the playoffs or carried home your league’s Toilet Bowl trophy as the worst team in the league – we’re always curious about the next year’s draft. Always. So I’m taking this time to do a one-man 2014 Fantasy Football mock draft. How does this work, exactly? Well, I sit down and figure out which players I think should be drafted in each round. I understand nearly everyone that reads this will take issue with at least a few players and where they’re placed in this mock. But hey – that’s what makes it fun! Drop a comment below to tell me where you’d rather take a player! And chime in on which players I should have in the first five rounds, or which players I should dump into the middle rounds. Either way, this is the officially kickoff to the 2014 Fantasy Football offseason! And we can all agree – that’s awesome! 2014 Fantasy Football Mock Draft This early mock draft is for a 12-team, non-PPR league that starts 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-Flex, 1-TE, 1-K and 1-DST, with 4 pts for a touchdown pass. I will work on editing this mock draft up until the 2014 NFL Draft, and then I’ll post an entirely new one once we figure out where the new rookie class will be headed. ROUND 1 1.01 Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City 1.02 LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia 1.03 Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota 1.04 Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle 1.05 Matt Forte, RB, Chicago 1.06 Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit 1.07 Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay 1.08 DeMarco Murray, RB, Dallas 1.09 Peyton Manning, QB, Denver 1.10 Zac Stacy, RB, St. Louis 1.11 Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland 1.12 Jimmy Graham, TE, New Orleans Not too many surprises here in this first round. The top three players could end up being interchangeable by August, much like A.P., McCoy and Ray Rice were back in 2011 draft season. Forte and Lynch, for me, are just too consistent to ignore in the first half of...

15 Best Fantasy Baseball Apps for iPad and iPhone in 2014

Looking for the best Fantasy Baseball apps for your iPad and iPhone can be troublesome and time consuming. There are a lot of great ones out there, with a handful of crappy ones sprinkled in as well. Then again, I noticed that there were fewer apps out there this year, compared to last year. Or at least, some of the shaky ones from last season have been removed or not updated, so I left them off. One of the major things I noticed this year, compared to last season, is that ESPN and Yahoo! no longer partner together for an iPad draft app! It was called, “Fantasy Baseball Draft HD ’13 For ESPN/Y,” and it cost about $5. My guess is — there were some issues with it, and both companies bailed, but I really have no idea. Meanwhile, CBSSports came out with their in-season app, and I was just blown away. That might also mean ESPN and Yahoo! are retooling theirs in order to compete in that market better. Using your iPad or your iPhone to help you in your Fantasy Baseball draft has become “the thing to do” in draft rooms across the country. As a matter of fact, at Tout Wars last season, several of us used our iPads. RotoWire’s Derek VanRiper used his iPad as his exclusive draft tool. Since we were often fighting over the same players, I imagine it’s a pretty good app to use!   15 Best Fantasy Baseball Apps For iPad and iPhone for 2014 So here are a few apps I’ve found across the worldwide web that you might find useful this Fantasy Baseball season. I haven’t used all of them, but you can read some of the reviews on their iTunes pages to get an idea of how good they’re doing. RotoWire Fantasy Baseball Assistant 2014 – Roto Sports, Inc. iPhone, iPad Cost: $9.99 This seems to be the most popular of all the apps — although, it’s also one of the most expensive. You’ll get access to all of RotoWire’s Fantasy Baseball news and analysis, which is usually through a pay-wall anyway. You can also filter your news by AL- or NL-only, and you’ll get articles and blogs...
