2024’s Scariest RB Profile Is Ridiculously Expensive and Threatens Austin Ekeler-Level Damage

Shawn Siegele explains why the scariest RB Dead Zone profile is priced above the dead zone and threatens to torpedo your roster like Dalvin Cook in 2022 or Austin Ekeler in 2023.

2023’s Best Player Hack Points at These 4 RBs as Potential Tournament Winners in 2024

After the Dolphins’ RBs broke fantasy football in 2023, Shawn Siegele profiles the running game poised to deliver similar results in 2024.

Shawn Siegele’s Updated Top 36 Rookie Rankings Through Reality Round 4

Shawn Siegele continues to adjust his rookie rankings after Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Ben Gretch and I streamed for almost five hours, covering the entire event for a special…...

Drake Maye Is a Rich Man’s Mix of Josh Allen and Justin Herbert . . . and Should Be the Rookie 1.01

On a recent episode of Ship Chasing, we ended up joking about both multiple universes and my contention that the battle for rookie 1.01 went six players deep.

Bo Nix Is the QB Teams Should Be Fighting Over

Shawn Siegele explains why the loaded 2024 quarterback class could feature a consolation prize that pays off in a huge way and at a fraction of the price.  Everybody knows that Bo Nix is entering the NFL as an elderly prospect who just spent his final season throwing underneath relentlessly.

Is This 2024 Draft Slider About to Follow in Terry McLaurin’s Footsteps?

Shawn Siegele begins the 2024 draft prospects sleeper series with an intriguing wide receiver who goes late in pre-draft best ball contests. Terry McLaurin burst onto the NFL stage as a rookie.
