This Advanced Wide Receiver Opportunity Metric Is Still Undervalued: 3 Second-Year Breakout Candidates and a Sneaky Veteran Who Can Give You a Massive Edge in Best Ball Drafts

How to Take Down Underdog’s Week 10 Battle Royale Contests

Best ball season does not have to end (ever). After we are done with the seasonal best ball, daily best ball contests are arguably even more fun to play. Daily best ball is very similar to DFS, except instead of using salary we get to apply the drafting skills we’ve built up all summer.

The High Ceiling Potential Monsters to Draft if You Miss out on the Top Five

At this stage of the draft season, the first sweat after you join the draft lobby is all too familiar. Will Loki bless us with a draft slot that allows us to select a member of the Power 5?

How to Win the FFPC Best Ball Tournament, Part 2

I’ve written a lot about best ball and structure this summer. I thoroughly examined how the field built teams in Underdog’s BBMII and then how to exploit those tendencies using Zero RB, Anchor RB, and Hyperfragile.

Deshaun Watson Suspension: How to Play it

Deshaun Watson is accused of sexually assaulting 24 women. Many of the details are disgusting. It feels odd to be writing about him purely through the lens of fantasy football in the face of such allegations. However, we are playing a game of numbers based on NFL outcomes with money on the line. Therefore, a thorough understanding of how he impacts the fantasy landscape is…...

The Tight Ends Poised to Smash in the FFPC and Beyond

Your tight end strategy is one of the defining pillars of a draft. It is arguably the most important decision you will ever make (in fantasy football).
