I’m Fading Adam Thielen in 2020 and Here’s Why

There are several factors in play that could lead you towards the opinion that Adam Thielen is ready for a bounceback campaign in 2020. However, there are just as many that should lead you to think the exact opposite. It is these negative factors that you must keep in mind in drafts when you start thinking about adding the Minnesota Vikings man. Bouncebackability? Predicting bounceback campaigns for WRs as a whole is a tricky business, especially for players of a certain age. Blair Andrews has done great work in the past looking at this topic, and as Blair found out,…...

3 Players RotoViz Rankers Are Higher on Than FFPC Drafters

There is still a fair amount of uncertainty as to whether we will actually get an NFL season in 2020. However, until higher powers tell us otherwise, the fantasy football world continues to assume that some action will take place on the gridirons of America this fall and winter. With this in mind, the folks over at the FFPC are still churning out the fantasy drafts. Looking through the ADP’s using our handy tool here at RotoViz, I was interested to see that there were some players that our rankers like more than the FFPC drafters. Often significantly more. With…...

Don’t Delay, Acquire David Njoku in Dynasty Today

There is no position in the NFL with a steeper learning curve than that of tight end. Players at that position come into the league and are expected to not only learn how to run NFL routes but also block NFL defenders. Is there little wonder then that rookie stars at this position are so hard to find? Some people still make the mistake of bailing on a young TE too soon, both in the “real” world and also in fantasy football. Dynasty managers can often find themselves staring at a player on their roster, conjuring up fantasies about what…...

5 Notable Fallers in High Stakes Leagues Since the NFL Draft

It seems like 100 years or more since the 2020 NFL Draft. But I assure you, it was only last month. Since the last name was called at the event, nearly 150 high stakes drafts have taken place over at the FFPC. I thought it would be interesting to take a look at five players who have experienced something of a drop in popularity since the draft. These players could offer some value at their now very low draft spots. Ryan Fitzpatrick (40.3 spot drop since the end of the NFL Draft) The Miami Dolphins spent one of their three…...

Don’t Forget About Chris Herndon in 2020

The New York Jets are eagerly looking forward to what they can get out of tight end Chris Herndon in 2020. According to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, “to say the Jets can’t wait to get (him) back in their lineup is a vast understatement.” Hughes doubled down on this sentiment on Tuesday, remarking that they “had sky-high expectations” for him in 2019. But suspension and injury limited Herndon to just 18 snaps last season. Herndon could present an intriguing late-round option at the TE spot in 2020 if he is back to full health. Coming Out of College An…...

Fanball ADP Risers: 3 NFL Teams Make Big Changes

We previously looked at the risers and fallers in the world of high stakes best ball. Now let’s turn our attention to those who get their kicks over at Fanball. The platform is different, and so are the players who have become more popular in recent weeks. Here are six Fanball ADP risers on three different teams who have seen their stock rise over the last fortnight. ADP data is for the period of April 2-April 16. RB DeAndre Washington It may have escaped the attention of most NFL fans, but DeAndre Washington enjoyed a career season in 2019 for…...

Going Down: ADP Fallers in High Stakes Leagues

Earlier this week, I looked at five players who were experiencing a bump in popularity over at the FFPC. In the interest of balance, it’s only fair that we look at the other side of the coin. With that in mind, here are five situations where high stakes fantasy players have started to cool. Free agency did not exactly make these players winners, not in the eyes of those over at the FFPC…....

Moving On Up: Recent ADP Risers in High Stakes Leagues

At the time of writing, the NFL Draft is still scheduled to take place on time. At the time of writing, we should be getting a 2020 NFL season. Obviously a lot can change between now (whenever you are reading this) and then, but let us proceed with the assumption that there will be football in 2020. If this is the case, then there will be fantasy football in 2020. To that end, here are five players who have become more popular with drafters over at the FFPC in the last month. ADP Data is for the period March 7th…...

Is Harrison Bryant the Next Jonnu Smith? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

The original version of this article was published on January 30. We now have measurements from the combine to add to our assessment. How does Harrison Bryant’s combine performance change his NFL outlook? The winner of the award for the best tight end in college football is draft-eligible in 2020. Yet some ranking services seem to be less than impressed with him. This is a grave injustice, and I will not rest until everyone knows the name of Harrison Bryant. BACKGROUND A native of Georgia, Bryant played baseball and basketball in addition to football at John Milledge Academy. He was…...

Could Hunter Bryant Be the First Tight End Off the Board? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

The original version of this article published on January 6. We now have combine numbers. Did Hunter Bryant’s athletic measurements do enough to cement his place as one of the top tight ends in the draft? Hunter Bryant is one of the best young TEs in the nation. His 2019 success in concert with his athletic gifts no doubt played a part in his deciding to enter the draft in 2020. Bryant’s skills and pedigree will make him one of the top prospects at his position. BACKGROUND Bryant was born in Issaquah, Washington and attended Eastside Catholic High School in…...
