Every year there are players that are overrated, underrated, over-hyped, and under-hyped. We love our sleepers, we love our three-down, goal-line backs, and we love the guys that have won us fantasy championships in the past. But there are some players that we don’t love. As Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary from Shark Tank says to a contestant that has a poor product, “You’re Dead to Me!” Here are the players that are dead to me. I am like a scorned lover. These players may be talented. They may even have good seasons. I don’t care because I don’t trust them. They’ve hurt me. I can forgive a co-worker for eating my food in the break room that had a big label with my name on it. I can forgive the person going 10 MPH below the speed limit in the left-hand lane. I can forgive my friend for forgetting my birthday. But what I CANNOT forgive is a player that lets me down repeatedly in fantasy football. I mean come on man! This is serious! This is real, for Pete’s sake!
The 2017 NFL season is finally here! The link for our week 1 rankings is below. These were done early in the week and no decision had yet to be made about the Tampa Bay-Miami game as a result of the expected issues with Hurricane Irma. These are the same rankings that we are using in our own lineup decision-making process. We included FantasyPros rankings in our rankings so that you have a comparison with one of the best-ranking systems out there. These are full-PPR rankings and can be used in all formats, though some players will obviously be slightly better suited in different formats. As usual, these rankings are not guaranteed because football results are not guaranteed. Have fun with your lineups and good luck this week.
If you play fantasy football and don’t know who Adam Levitan is then you are missing out on both some entertainment value and a bunch of fantasy goodness. He is mostly known as a cash game DFS player, but his insights can help season-long guys win their league.
Preparing for your upcoming fantasy football draft can be fun but it can also be very confusing. There are a lot of people giving you advice and some of it may be conflicting. I tend to listen to a lot of people and then use my wisdom to filter and process the information. At the end of the day, you want to pick players that you feel good about. Most of the time, there are enough players (even in the later rounds) that you will like and feel comfortable with.
Last year, I won my fantasy league despite drafting last, trading away Ezekiel Elliott and having Tyrod Taylor as my top quarterback. Those are some huge obstacles to overcome but I did it to win another season-long league. Here are 11 tips that might help with your draft-day preparation as you seek to gain an edge on your competition.
When it comes to providing information and breaking down the upcoming NFL games, there are few better than Evan Silva. Each week, he does a game-by-game breakdown for Rotoworld. He will provide some predictions and give some advice but he typically sticks to facts and trends. This allows the reader to decide for themselves which action to take on which player. Silva is generally respected by most of the top fantasy players … whether they are season-long or DFS players.
