Fantasy Owners Are Targeting the Wrong Back in Jacksonville

Before the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Chris Ivory to a reported 5-year, $32-million contract, T.J. Yeldon was being selected as RB11 in early MFL10s at an ADP of No. 32 overall. This reflected his sky high dynasty ADP, and I was encouraging everyone to sell even if they couldn’t quite get fair value in return…....

Marvin Jones Signs With Lions – Eric Ebron Owners Celebrate

The Lions have reportedly agreed to a five-year, $40 million contract with Marvin Jones. It’s almost like the Lions hate winning or hate their fans or some combination of the two. New GM Bob Quinn comes from the New England Patriots, the NFL’s best organization to be sure, but one that has been terrible at evaluating WRs. Perhaps this is why Detroit opted to take a flyer on a guy who has never gone for 900 yards in college or the NFL. Marvin Jones versus Golden Tate I think it’s probably worth mentioning again that Marvin Jones is entering his…...

The Ultimate Swing For the Fences MFL10 Lineup

You only live once, although if you make it to the Singularity, you may live virtually forever. For our purposes, post-singularity fantasy football will probably look substantially different. So better to get those YOLO lineups in now. Here’s the Ultimate Swing for the Fences MFL10 lineup for 2016.1 Round 1: Le’Veon Bell Ignore the fact that . . . Bell is going to enter 2016 with all kinds of injury red flags and that the Sim Scores see Devonta Freeman’s low projection as only one point lower than Bell’s high projection. When healthy, no one presents the type of weapon that Bell provides…....

RB Sleepers Galore in Round 2 of Post-Combine Rookie Mock

We saw the athletic freaks rise and the disappointing plodders fall in Round 1 of our post-combine rookie mock. We also watched as a flurry of receivers came off the board after the two RB mega-prospects. As we move into Round 2, we discover the real depth of this draft is back at the RB position. The goal here is also to provide an easy means to access much of the great work RotoViz writers have already done on the prospects and to provide the tools to go deeper with your own analysis. Age represents final college age and comes…...

Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft: Projecting Round 1 Post-Combine

With the combine in the rear view, we can start to put together our rookie boards and create projections that allow us to maneuver into the right spot to get “our guy.” Jon Moore will have another official RotoViz mock soon, but this is my attempt to estimate rookie ADP for my own leagues…....

The Shockingly Undervalued Rookie WR Who Could Be an MFL10 Monster

In best ball leagues, you want to maximize opportunity and variance. There is no bench in best ball, so every player you draft without a defined role is costing you valuable points until he gets on the field (IF he gets on the field). In addition, since there is no bench, you never lose any of the big weeks your players score. . . This inefficiency applies primarily to WRs with a more vertical skill set as that is one of the few instances where production is volatile on a per snap basis and not simply determined by playing time, which…...

Eagles Re-Sign Sam Bradford Giving Him Sneaky 2016 Value

The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to a two-year contract with quarterback Sam Bradford, keeping Bradford off the free-agent market without using the franchise tag. The deal is worth $36 million, with $26 million of that guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. – ESPN…...

C.J. Prosise

The Undervalued Combine Riser Who Resembles David Johnson

During the prospect write-up series in January, Matthew Freedman detailed the journey of Notre Dame running back C.J. Prosise. He even suggested that if Prosise was a below average athlete it wouldn’t matter that much due to his size and receiving ability. If Prosise turned out to be a stud athlete, he could be the next David Johnson. And then Prosise did this. Kevin Cole’s research re-affirms the 40 as the most important drill for RBs and provided a threshold around 4.5 for hits versus misses. While trendy players like Derrick Henry missed this mark, Prosise slid under at 4.48,…...

This Boring RB Could Be the Key to Your Zero RB MFL10 Squad

What jumps out to me is that many of the best picks weren’t traditional “handcuffs,” but instead players that had limited roles which expanded as the season progressed . . . Even the RBs who didn’t break out didn’t hurt your score as much if they at least had a role in the offense. – A.J. Bessette and Greg Meade, Using Monte Carlo Simulation to Win Your Best Ball League Player Selection …...
