Can Atlanta’s Offense Support a Pair of 300-Point Scorers? The Many Worlds of the Projection Machine

Blair Andrews uses the projection machine to explore a few of the many possible futures for the Atlanta Falcons offense. Only once since 2000 has a team produced two 300-point wide receivers — Denver did it in 2014 with both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders reaching that threshold while catching passes from Peyton Manning. If 2020 ADP is any indication, there are probably only two teams who have a remote shot at doing that again this year. One of those teams is the Atlanta Falcons.1 Julio Jones is going off the board as the WR4, while Calvin Ridley is not far…...

You Have to Pass on Trendy Options to Buy Marvin Jones, But These 2 Similar WRs Are Almost Free

Marvin Jones has had an interesting career. He’s 30-years-old with only a single 1,000-yard season, and yet his WR37 ADP looks like a value. Jones is not a target volume guy. He’s never had a 110-target season, and over the last two years he hasn’t managed 100 combined receptions. And yet, he’s been a top-30 WR in PPR/G in each of the last three years, and few vertical receivers have made as many big plays. He has a multi-touchdown game in each of the three campaigns, including a four-score game in 2019. Since moving to Detroit to join Matthew Stafford…...

3rd Year Breakouts: When These WRs Emerge, They Often Erupt

After a slow stretch from 2013 to 2017 where Davante Adams was the only third-year wide receiver to crest 200 points for the first time, the last two seasons brought Tyler Boyd, Chris Godwin, and Cooper Kupp into the ranks of the elite. And Godwin and Kupp didn’t just break out. They scored 270 points a piece, capitalizing on the promise of earlier seasons and helping their owners to fantasy titles. Should Godwin and Kupp reinvigorate our interest in third-year WRs? If you’re a Wrong Read fanatic, you know that the exploitable relationship between WR age and opportunity is one…...

These 3 3rd-Year Wide Receivers Are Still Too Cheap in BestBall10s

With the arrival of NFL training camp come the final chances to acquire players at some of their best possible prices. Not long into training camp, rumors about players will begin circulating and ADPs will rise. As these ADPs rise, we’ll begin to get the sense that we may have been criminally low on some guys — players we viewed as being nothing more than a second or third fiddle could have a chance to see every-down roles. Other times we are low on guys because we didn’t go deep enough in our research. Perhaps we ignored end of season…...

Will Fuller Is One of My Most-Owned Players, But I’m Also Buying These 3 Explosive Discount Options to Cheaply Diversify

Will Fuller was one of my most-started players when he scored 53 points in Week 5 last year. He was one of my most-started players when he “dropped” three TDs passes in Week 6. He was one of my most-started players when he went out with yet another soft tissue injury at the beginning of Week 7. When you own Fuller, it’s always a roller coaster. Even with these near misses and early departures, Fuller has been a dynamic receiver with Deshaun Watson under center. With DeAndre Hopkins departing for Arizona, Fuller becomes even more enticing. His mouthwatering WR29 ADP…...

3 Offenses to Stack in Underdog’s Best Ball Mania

I’ve focused on two macro strategies so far in the Underdog Best Ball Tournament. Modified Zero RB grants us more reliable access to a massive ceiling more than any other strategy. Hyperfragile RB also grants us access to a massive ceiling but comes with greater injury risk. I’ve then supplemented those strategies with two other key tactics. First, I have a few roster construction requirements, mostly set at the onesie positions. If my first pick among these two positions is a tight end, then I want three quarterbacks and two tight ends. If my first pick among these two positions…...
