NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Top 30 quarterbacks

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

We’re in an era where the pool for fantasy QBs is deeper than ever. There’s also plenty of fluctuation at the top, as no QB has repeated as the No. 1 fantasy QB since Daunte Culpepper did in 2013-14.
1. Aaron Rodgers, GB
1675 passing yards, 16 passing TD, 6 INTs, 126 rushing yards, 135.6 points.
A broken [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: The Top 50 running backs

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

Just because you’re at the top of the draft and grabbing one of the best RBs, that doesn’t guarantee success. Since 2000, the top RB has repeated just twice and the average finish for an RB1 when accounting for injuries is RB16 the following year.
1. Todd Gurley LAR
1305 rushing yards, 788 receiving yards, 19 TDs, [...]

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

With the rules changing to better protect receivers, we could see a boost across the board at the position. This could be one for the record books.
1. Antonio Brown, PIT
1533 receiving yards, 9 TDs, 209.3 points.
He has been the top fantasy WR in PPR for four straight years and has at last 100 receptions in [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Top 25 defences

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

Looking for a reason to wait on grabbing your defence? Well, 48% of top-5 DEFs finished outside the top 12 the next season and just 20% repeat their top-5 status.
1. Jacksonville Jaguars
262 points allowed, 55 sacks, 21 INTs, 12 fumbles recovered, 8 TDs, 207 points.
Had the second most sacks and interceptions and scored the most [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Top 20 kickers

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

You can leave this position until the last round of your draft since the difference between the top-end kickers and the low-end of the top 10 isn’t too much. A season like Zuerlein’s 2017 is an anomaly.
1. Greg Zuerlein, LAR
38 FGs, 44 PATs, 182 points.
Despite missing the final two games of the season, Legatron finished [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: The Top 25 tight ends

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

After the top tier of tight ends, the drop off to the lower end of TE1s is a bit big, but at least there’s a lot of depth in the position to fill that spot on your roster.
1. Rob Gronkowski, NE
1084 receiving yards, 8 TDs, 158.4 points.
Gronk remains the top of the TE class and [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Is Zero-RB still a good way to go?

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

A few years, the trend of a “zero-RB” draft strategy was the hottest thing in fantasy football.
Now, does it still hold up?
The theory that this strategy is predicated upon is that there’s more value in grabbing two elite WRs in the first two rounds, followed by another high-end WR, and elite TE and QB in [...]

Football is back, baby!

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

I couldn’t have timed my return from vacation any better: After a week of hemming, hawing and delaying a couple votes to end the lockout, the NFL is finally back to work. But unlike yours truly, who had a splendid time in Costa Rica, the NFL has returned from exiling its [...]
