4 Rookie Quarterbacks Slide All the Way Out of Round 1

Just one quarterback was taken in the first round of the 2022 draft, which is the first time that’s happened since 2013. After writing The Rookie Quarterbacks Who Could Dominate 2022 Best Ball Leagues, it was obviously disappointing news for me. However, I do think there is some nuance to the picture and I will still be excited to the draft rookie QBs this year,…...

Biggest Best Ball Tournament Impacts and Reactions from Round 1

The NFL has followed up the wildest offseason of our time with the craziest first round we’ve ever seen. Six wide receivers went in the opening stanza and even that was overshadowed by multiple NFL teams transforming their depth charts with trades involving high profile wide receivers. Today I’m looking at the WR news that changed the best-ball tournament landscape. For all of our player…...

Allen Robinson Is Finally Out Of QB Purgatory, But Does That Make His ADP A Trap?

With the NFL draft just a few days away, this means we are on the horizon of best-ball season. Right now, the rookies are the toast of the town, but we need to make sure we dig into these veteran players to see if their cost could present a potential value in drafts. Over the course of the next few weeks and months the discourse…...

A Gunslinging Approach to the Rookies and Sophomores Tournament on Underdog

Shawn Siegele analyzes a draft in the Rookies and Sophomores Tournament on Underdog and explains why 2022 offers a unique opportunity. I’m having a hard time containing my enthusiasm for our upcoming Underdog tools, especially after Michael Dubner previewed them in breaking down how each team wins our staff draft and Blair Andrews used them to answer everyone’s favorite question: Does Zero RB Work in Underdog…...

FFPC Never Too Early Tournament – Zero RB out of the 1.05

This is the second of a three-part series analyzing my entries into the FFPC Never-Too-Early best ball tournament. This time, I drafted out of the 1.05. The NTE just filled, but many of the principles and decisions will remain when the FFPC releases its next tournament, likely shortly after the NFL draft. 1.05 – The options: Cooper Kupp, Justin Jefferson, or Ja’marr Chase The debate:…...

How Each Team Wins: Recapping the RotoViz Staff Underdog Best Ball Draft

The RotoViz Staff and Friends best ball draft on Underdog just wrapped up. It was our first staff draft of the season, and there were certainly some fun twists and turns. Perhaps the most surprising move was Zero RB Founding Father Shawn Siegele not drafting a WR through five rounds. In the middle rounds, we saw RBs start to fall down draft boards with Blair Andrews…...

The Rookie Quarterbacks Who Could Dominate 2022 Best Ball Leagues

The 2022 rookie quarterback class is widely regarded as one of the weakest in recent memory. Each player comes with notable red flags and their current Underdog ADPs reflect this. Malik Willis is the earliest of the crop at QB28 in the Superflex, while Kenny Pickett, Matt Corral, Desmond Ridder, and Sam Howell all go QB33, QB36, QB37, and QB40 respectively. The Underdog single quarterback…...

Underdog Tournament Best Ball Workshop: Does Zero RB Work in Tournament Play?

Blair Andrews uses two new Underdog Best Ball tools to examine optimal tournament constructions. Can Zero RB work in tournaments? As a site, we’ve been able to leverage our tools and analysis to some impressive best ball wins.

Is Stefon Diggs Still a Foundation Piece in Zero RB Builds?

Shawn Siegele begins his 3-in-1 series focusing on player evaluation, draft strategy, and high-stakes recaps with a look at Stefon Diggs. Will 2020’s breakout star return to Round 1 value in 2022? John Daigle recently appeared on RotoViz Overtime and made an impassioned pitch for our favorite wide receiver.  Then Diggs became a foundation pick in both of my recent FFPC best ball leagues,…...

The Stars Are Aligned for a DeAndre Hopkins Bounceback, But Does That Make Him a No-Brainer?

We’re in the process of a RotoViz writers draft on Underdog, and as you might expect wide receivers were flying off the board early and often. I was lucky enough to draw the 1.01 where I selected Christian McCaffrey, but Shawn Siegele’s recent thoughts on what might be in store for Jonathan Taylor in 2022 already have me rethinking that selection. Since I was picking…...

The 2022 Best Ball Workshop Begins With a Look at the One Decision That Supercharges Everything

Why the 2022 Season Will Revolve Around Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson was the MVP in the 2019 season. He turned out to be one of the best values in fantasy drafts and an absolute league winner. In the 2020 season, he was drafted as the QB1 and generally disappointed after getting COVID-19 at a key time during the fantasy regular season. He finished as the QB10 in both total points and points per game…....

Whatever You’re Paying for Jonathan Taylor, You Should Probably Be Willing to Pay More

In my last three drafts, Jonathan Taylor has not gone at the 1.01. In one of those, I had a shot at him with the 1.02 and selected Cooper Kupp. Christian McCaffrey is a unicorn, and Kupp is coming off of the greatest fantasy WR season ever. Moreover, it’s a sign that fantasy drafters are getting savvier that we can even have this conversation. There…...

FFPC Never Too Early Tournament – Bully Tight End Out of the 1.01

Hello again RotoViz subscribers. It’s been a year since you last heard from me, when I decided to crown Daniel Jones and Kenny Golladay the Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen of 2021. Well … after that, I was forced to serve a (self-imposed) one-year suspension, but I’m back now and will stick to touting #good players in 2022. That starts today. Below is the first…...

Tyreek Hill Gets a Downgrade at QB But Could Propel Miami to the Elite Ranks

In what has been an absolutely wild offseason, the Dolphins kept the party going by trading a bevy of picks in return for Tyreek Hill. Shawn Siegele examined how the Chiefs’ offense might operate going forward, and I get to tackle the fun side with Hill. For real life football, this is a questionable use of draft capital and salary by Miami. Hill is 28…...
