DeAndre Hopkins: A WR2 in 2020?

No, it’s not clickbait. It was the trade that shook the universe: DeAndre Hopkins and a 2020 fourth-round pick for David Johnson, a 2020 second-round pick, and 2021 fourth-round pick. We don’t have to say it, but I will anyway; the math doesn’t check out. Hopkins will move on to the Arizona Cardinals, where he will catch passes from 2019’s No. 1 overall pick, alongside future first-ballot Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald and capable pass catchers Christian Kirk and Kenyan Drake.  What Gives? Talent isn’t the question. Hopkins has racked up 8,602 receiving yards in his first seven NFL seasons…...

Potential Roster Moves and the Guys to Buy

We often compare dynasty fantasy football to the stock market, and for a good reason. Buy low. Sell high. Be the first to predict the next move successfully, and beat others to the punch. As each NFL season comes to a close, we’re left with a wide range of possibilities and free agency pipe dreams that would lead our rosters to long-term success. One way to do that: predicting roster moves and identifying the beneficiaries from these moves before their acquisition cost triples. Where can NFL teams save some money with cuts or trades, and if they do, who are the guys…...

Giddy Up, Gallup Owners: Week 6 Flex Plays

Week 6 is almost here, and the injuries on your fantasy football rosters are likely piling up. Below are some of my favorite Week 6 flex plays to get you through some challenging weeks, as big names like Todd Gurley and Davante Adams find their way to your benches. Michael Gallup, WR, Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys have made a concerted effort to open up the passing game through five weeks, and by all accounts, it’s working. Gallup and veteran Amari Cooper make up just one of four wide receivers duos on the same team to combine for more than…...

Curtis Samuel Headlines Week 4 Flex Plays

The injuries continue to mount heading into Week 4, likely leaving your fantasy football teams in need of some serious TLC. Kate Magdziuk delivers her favorite Week 4 flex plays to get you the win, whether 3-0 or 0-3. Curtis Samuel vs. Houston Texans Curtis Samuel was training camp’s darling, filling Twitter timelines across the globe with highlights of deep balls taken to the house against soft defensive coverage. He received plenty of hype from beat reports and fans alike, who argued that he could indeed be the wide receiver to own in Carolina. Unfortunately, the Panthers are navigating Cam…...

Week 2 Flex Plays: Sony Michel Should Ball Out

With Week 1 under our belts, it’s time to look ahead to our next matchups. Our favorite Week 2 fantasy football flex plays are all about exploiting the matchups and taking what the defense gives you. These guys should be able to find plenty of room against their opponents this weekend and provide plenty of boom potential. Sony Michel Michel averaged an abysmal 0.93 yards per carry to open up the season versus the Steelers. He was stuffed at every opportunity, and fantasy football owners are likely nervous trusting him in their lineup again. I’m here to calm your fears…...

Nick Foles vs Chiefs The QB position is deep in 2019, but if you completely punted the position and elected to stream, Nick Foles at home versus Kansas City should be a good place to start. Kansas City…...

5 Fantasy Football Takeaways from Thursday Night

We’re kicking off week two semi-NFL football, and fantasy football Twitter is full of reminders that it’s only preseason. Twitter timelines are dominated with warnings of what we should and should not buy into for the coming fantasy football season – here are our preseason takeaways from the Thursday night slate. The games: PHI @ JAX, NYJ @ ATL, CIN @ WAS, OAK @ ARI The Cardinals will have some growing pains. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise when talking about a team that just drafted their new franchise quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick. You expect a…...

Mike Evans: The WR1 for Fantasy Football in 2019

The hype train pulled into Tampa, Florida this spring, and it’s official. Tickets are sold out. Standing room only. I’m fully on board for 2019, and I’m here to make my case that this could be the year that Mike Evans finishes as the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy. The 2019 Bucs May Be Underrated Despite Tampa Bay’s success over the last several years with key pieces like Jameis Winston, Mike Evans and company, we haven’t quite seen them put everything together. Whether due to poor defense or inconsistent quarterback play riddled with turnovers, they just couldn’t get everything…...

Is Damien Williams Still Worth a Second-Round Pick?

As we inch closer to the start of the regular NFL season and the injuries continue to mount, it’s become clear that there is one backfield to keep our eyes on. That backfield is Kansas City. Damien Williams is consistently being drafted in the second round. Much to the chagrin of fantasy owners, he’s come down with a hamstring early in training camp that’s kept him off the field. Despite the strong finish in 2018, could it be wise to pace expectations for Williams in 2019? The Offense Williams truthers most often cite the potential in the offensive system to…...
