Early Off-Season Late Round Boom/Bust Candidates

Last off-season, I found four candidates poised to be later-round values due to their highly volatile scoring trends.  Mentioned within that article were the overall QB8, RB8, and WR27. The only noticeable miss was at tight end position. I’m back again this year to find some late-round gems that could find their way on to winning MFL10 rosters…....

Prospect to Watch: Zay Jones

This is likely the first of several articles that I’m going to write about my second favorite prospect in this draft, Isaiah (Zay) Jones…....

Spencer Ware is your Week 1 Must Play

Spencer Ware is the start of the week at the running back position, in both season and DFS formats. With reports that Jamaal Charles is likely to be inactive, Ware’s touchdown potential increases, giving him top-5 upside at the position. Kansas City ranked ninth in the NFL in rush attempts last year with 28.1 per game. And under Andy Reid, the RB1 has received approximately 55 percent of the rush attempts on a weekly basis. As the projected lead back, Ware would be in line for 15.5 carries (or rounded up to 16 for simplicity sake). Efficiency Despite being widely seen as…...

Matt Wispe’s 10 Bold Predictions

Oh, you want some bold predictions? You can’t handle my bold predictions! But I guess since you asked so nicely, here are my ten predictions for 2016 that will surely leave you shaking your head, but upon closer review are surprisingly within the realm of possibility. 1. Ted Ginn will outscore Kelvin Benjamin and neither will finish within the top 25 at Wide Receiver Simply put, Kelvin Benjamin is a volume dependent WR and after the Panthers played as a more efficient offense without him, the volume he received during his rookie year won’t be repeated. The ball is going to be…...

Who Ya Got: Foster or Gordon?

In every MFL10, you’re inevitably put in a situation where you’re left deciding between two players with similar projections and similar average draft positions. Today, I’m going to take a look at two mid-round running backs who have major question marks surrounding them, Arian Foster and Melvin Gordon. According to the RotoViz Best-Ball and MFL10 ADP app, since July 24, Melvin Gordon is being drafted as RB29 (79.47 overall) and Arian Foster is being drafted as RB30 (79.97 overall). Making the decision even more difficult, the RotoViz composite projections currently have Foster as RB21 and Gordon as RB24. But when I’m…...

Niles Paul: The Guy Behind The Guy

This is part of a new series at RotoViz, where we talk about players that are more or less off the fantasy football radar, but who could have value if things break their way. Up next: Niles Paul. I’ll start off by stating the obvious. Niles Paul isn’t the same caliber of player as Jordan Reed. Reed is one of the elite receiving TEs in the NFL and is rightfully being drafted as the second TE (38th overall) off of the board in drafts, according to the RotoViz Best Ball ADP app. But Paul finds himself in a better situation than most back…...

Why Are We Forgetting About Eric Decker?

Eric Decker finished the 2015 season as the 13th overall wide receiver in PPR formats, but his early average draft position has him as the 29th WR, and it’s time to take advantage of this undervaluation…....

Keyarris Garrett is Exactly Carolina’s Type

If you asked around the RotoViz staff, Keyarris Garrett going undrafted was a big surprise. During the RotoViz Wide Receiver Prospect Tournament, Garrett upset Ohio State’s Michael Thomas in the first round. What may have been a bigger surprise was the team that signed Garrett immediately after the real NFL draft. …...

Who Can Be 2016’s Carson Palmer?

The late round quarterback draft strategy is so common now that it’s almost become a cliche. Joshua Lake recently discussed the possible benefits of going the opposite direction with drafting QBs. But in one QB leagues, the QB position is still a market inefficiency…....

4 Boom/Bust Picks You Need to Make at the End of MFL10s

In MFL10s, the later rounds of the draft can seem a little bleak. You’re often deciding between a backup running back or wide receiver and hoping for a possible injury in front of them that will open up a path to usage. But some of this year’s late round picks have greater value than those handcuffs looking for a break…....

Dion Lewis is a Bargain in the Fourth Round

It seems simple to say that what team a player is on matters for fantasy purposes. For example, when targeting running backs, you should generally follow teams with a winning record and teams that score a lot. And specifically for PPR, you should follow running backs that catch passes…....

New Opportunity Makes Dwayne Allen Undervalued in 2016

Tight end (with a few exceptions) is usually the last position player considered by drafters when putting together a team for best ball leagues. And for the most part, that is a good strategy. Unless you are able to get a Rob Gronkowski or Jordan Reed at a discount, the TE spot will likely be one of the lower point scoring slots in your lineup (not to mention the fact that they are rarely used at the flex spot). The average TE1 scored 11.8 points per week, as compared to 17.9 for WR1s and 13.8 for RB1s. With that in mind,…...
