“Early-TE” Should Be the New Fantasy Niche of 2019: Redraft Strategy for the Passing Revolution, Part 5

Welcome to my NFL Passing Revolution series, where I examine how the NFL’s shift towards efficient pass-heavy offenses has affected the landscape of fantasy football. In Parts 2-4, I examined modern archetypes for fantasy RB1s, RB2s and RB3s and highlighted 2019 rookies who fit those paradigms. Now, it’s time to move on from running back and instead focus on the tight end position.

Rookie Running Backs with Receiving Upside: Redraft Strategy for the Passing Revolution, Part 4

Welcome to my NFL Passing Revolution series, where I examine how the NFL’s shift towards efficient pass-heavy offenses has affected the landscape of fantasy football. In Parts 2 and 3, I examined modern archetypes for fantasy RB1s, RB2s and RB3s. That analysis revealed that fantasy RB1s and RB3s share similar rushing vs. receiving splits but obvious differences in overall opportunity and production. RB2s, on the other hand, look very different than either of the other fantasy groups. Modern PPR RB2s boast high rushing usage but poor overall receiving upside. So, to close out our discussion on the running back position,…...

Modern Fantasy RB1s and RB2s Look Nothing Alike: Redraft Strategy for the Passing Revolution, Part 3

Welcome to my NFL Passing Revolution series, where I examine how the NFL’s shift towards efficient pass-heavy offenses has affected the landscape of fantasy football. In Part 2 of this series, I investigated how fantasy RB1s have changed over the last 17 years — most notably over the last two. Beginning in 2017, we observed an unprecedented improvement in receiving production that has re-defined the fantasy RB1 archetype. In this installment, I’ll be examining fantasy RB2s and RB3s using a similar methodology to my previous article. My research shows that RB1s and RB2s don’t just differ in the magnitude of…...

The Fantasy RB1 Revival: Redraft Strategy for the Passing Revolution, Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, I investigated the NFL’s passing revolution through the prism of global statistical trends. I noted that last season marked a pivotal uptick in overall efficiency (rather than pass/run ratio), which also substantially lifted running backs’ yards per carry average across the league. I also highlighted how fantasy RB1s have recently made a resurgence in receiving production. In this installment, I’ll be examining RB1s based on PPR rushing vs. receiving splits. I’ll also provide “buy” or “sell” recommendations for potential fantasy RB1s based on the following data and current ADP. A New RB1 Paradigm Has…...

How the NFL’s Passing Revolution Affects Fantasy Redraft Strategy

Last Season Was Historic The 2018-19 NFL season may be best-remembered as the dawn of the so-called “passing revolution.” Sure, we’ve witnessed the NFL’s gradual shift towards efficient passing offenses over the last two decades, but last season was on another level. Patrick Mahomes took the league by storm en route to NFL MVP honors. He posted a ludicrous 5,097-50-12 passing line, which ranks eighth all-time for passing yards and is tied for second all-time for passing touchdowns in a single season. He also participated in last year’s most exhilarating shootout against the Rams in Week 11. In that instant…...
