Is it a Vick? Is it an RG3, no it’s an L-Jax – by Lawrence Vos

Down 23-3 against the Los Angeles Chargers in his first playoff game Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens looked dead and buried. The rookie quarterback looked like he had not only hit the rookie wall, but was simultaneously throwing up bricks and running in quick drying cement. Then something clicked, as Jackson mounted a furious…

Week 15: Playoff Sleepers – by Jamie Zadow

If you’re reading this then in all likelihood you survived the first round of your fantasy football playoffs (maybe by the skin of your teeth?). In most formats, this is the semifinals weekend that will put two winners one step closer to a fantasy championship. However, winning at this time of year can be especially…

Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 14 – by Ben Barton

I miss Melvin Gordon. He has been the cornerstone of a number of my fantasy football teams this year. Thankfully, I’ve been able to lean on the likes of Phillip Lindsay in Gordon’s absence, but as good as the undrafted rookie has been, Gordon has been in a different class this year, and my teams haven’t felt the…

Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 12 – by Jamie Zadow

Start ‘Em Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns — Matchup: @ Cincinnati Bengals What a dream matchup for the rookie coming out of his bye week, as the Bengals have surrendered the second-most FP/G to QB’s this season (23.2). In fact, only two QB’s have failed to score at least 22 fantasy points against this porous…

DFS: DraftKings Cheat Sheet and 1% plays – by Shaun Bo

DraftKings Cheat Sheet One Percenter Plays Golden Tate, Philadelphia Eagles @ New Orleans Saints – DraftKings: $5,500 More realistically, Tate could be anywhere from 5-10% owned but I feel this is a good spot to mention him as a big-time sleeper play this weekend while his stock is at rock bottom. Saints have gotten much better…

Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 11 – by Josh Deisinger

Start ‘Em QB – Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts Marcus just got his groove back.  He just posted two consecutive 20+ fantasy point weeks (9 and 10), and now heads to Indianapolis to take on a Colts defense that just allowed over 20 fantasy points and a pair of touchdowns to Blake Bortles. Also,…

Week 9: Bounce Back Candidates – by Ben Barton

Recency bias is a hell of a drug. Under its influence, you can find yourself investing everything in tiny sample sizes, or fading players off the back of one bad week. In order to win your league, you need to be able to break free from the trappings of recency bias and make sensible, rational…
