The Best Draft Picks For Best Ball: Rounds 5-8

NFL training camps are a little more than a month away, and fantasy football drafts are picking up steam. And what better way to hone your craft than Best Ball leagues – the draft-and-forget league that puts your draft skills to the test. Today, we will be looking at the best picks in Rounds 5-8 of Best Ball drafts. Check out my previous article for the best Best Ball picks in Rounds 1-4. We’re revisiting this series after doing it before the NFL draft. To see the best picks in each round before the draft, check out the first series:…...

The Best Draft Picks For Best Ball: Rounds 1-4

NFL training camps are a little more than a month away, and fantasy football drafts are picking up steam. And what better way to hone your craft than Best Ball leagues – the draft-and-forget league that puts your draft skills to the test. Today, we will be looking at the best picks in Rounds 1-4 of Best Ball drafts. We’re revisiting this series after doing it before the NFL draft. To see the best picks in each round before the draft, check out the first series: Rounds 1-4, 5-8, 9-12. Let’s get to it. Which RB has the best chance…...

The Perfect Best Ball Draft: Rounds 9-12

The Perfect Best Ball Draft (pre-NFL draft) continues with a look today at Rounds 9-12. If you missed the perfect picks from Rounds 1-4 or Rounds 5-8, be sure to check out those pieces first. Your squad is now nearly halfway done, and the real test begins: Can you find the diamonds in the rough? Once you get into the double-digit rounds of a Best Ball draft, it gets quite different from redraft leagues. Sure, the entire draft is different, but Best Ball really separates itself in the back half of drafts. So who are some of the best targets in…...

The Perfect Best Ball Draft: Rounds 5-8

We’re continuing our run through the Perfect Best Ball Draft (pre-NFL draft) with a look today at Rounds 5-8. The middle rounds of Best Ball drafts are where you really separate yourself from the field, as most of the “studs” are off the board. If you want to know the best players to pick in Rounds 1-4, check out the first article of this series. Let’s get on to rounds 5-8!…...

The Perfect Best Ball Draft: Rounds 1-4

The NFL Draft is rapidly approaching, and before Bill O’Brien has a chance to accidentally trade away Deshaun Watson for a fourth-round pick live on Zoom, we’re going to run through the best current Best Ball Value Picks in each round. This is the first part of a series, starting with the first four rounds. (Keep in mind, nailing your early-round Best Ball picks doesn’t mean you’re definitely going to win — but it sure is important.) Best Ball drafts are fluid — perhaps even more so than redraft leagues which are heavily drafted in August, when ADPs are half-etched…...

Kenyan Drake is the Probable RB1 in Arizona — Is He a Fantasy RB1 Too?

Kenyan Drake was traded to the Arizona Cardinals midway through the 2019 season, and he immediately stepped in as the team’s lead RB. So what can we expect from Kenyan Drake in 2020 with David Johnson is no longer in tow, and Drake having been slapped with the transition tag. Let’s dive into what we can expect from Drake next season now that he’s been given full reign over Arizona’s backfield. A quick primer on the “transition tag” since it’s not commonly used: The tag gives Arizona the right to match any offer Drake may receive from another team. It all but guarantees Drake…...

DeAndre Hopkins Traded to Arizona: The Ripple Effects of a Fantasy Football Tidal Wave

DeAndre Hopkins — he of ridiculous catches and more confidence than you and me combined — was, for some unknown reason, traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for David Johnson and some draft picks, none of which are first-rounders. So what is the fantasy impact of this move? Real-life trades that would be rejected in fantasy aside, what does Hopkins’ arrival in Arizona mean from a fantasy perspective? Fantasy Impact of DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals Hopkins has arguably been the best fantasy WR over the past three seasons. He was the No. 1 fantasy wideout in both 2017 and…...

Tom Brady to the Buccaneers: How Will It Impact Your Fantasy Teams?

Long live the king. Tom Brady’s reign over the AFC is officially over. Per ESPN, Brady is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers once the 2020 NFL season officially begins — so what’s the fantasy impact? From a fantasy perspective, Brady’s departure from the talent-depleted New England receiving corps is a plus. But what does his arrival in Tampa mean for Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and co.? Let’s dive into the fantasy ramifications of “Tom Brady, Buccaneers QB.” Brady to the Buccaneers: Fantasy Impact on Tom Brady Tampa was No. 2 on my fantasy wish list of possible Brady…...

Best Fantasy Landing Spots for Tom Brady in 2020 Free Agency

We’re less than a week away from the greatest quarterback of all time hitting the market as an unrestricted free agent. Where should we, the rabid fantasy football community, root for Tom Brady to suit up next season? This piece will examine the best fantasy landing spots for Brady. Brady had his worst season since 2013, throwing for 4,057 yards and 24 touchdowns with a QB rating of 88. But similar to that 2013 Patriots squad, the 2019 unit lacked reliable offensive weapons outside of Julian Edelman. Brady’s best football is behind him, but he wouldn’t be a fantasy afterthought…...

N’Keal Harry’s 2020 Outlook: A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

RotoViz is continuing our look back on the 2019 rookies with a review of New England Patriots wide receiver N’Keal Harry. The first-round pick joined the Pats in Week 11 and averaged only 3.5 targets per game. So what can we expect from N’Keal Harry during the 2020 fantasy football season? N’Keal Harry’s Rookie Season Per the NFL Stat Explorer, Harry’s 2019 season totals were a big disappointment; though injury had a lot to do with this. Harry didn’t enter the fantasy equation until Week 11, by which point the fantasy regular season was already wrapping up. The timing of Harry’s entrance — coupled…...
