Generating Buzz: 3 NFC Deep Sleepers to Monitor Heading into Camp

Earlier this week, I took a look at three little known players from the AFC generating some column inches this offseason. With that in mind, it seems only fair that we offer a similar spotlight to three men from the NFC. These players are not superstars by any stretch. But they have caught the eye of their coaches and/or beat writers in the last few…...

2019 Rookies and Redraft Leagues: 2 Targets and 5 Fades at RB

In part 1 of this series, we concluded that rookies drafted outside of Round 3 of the NFL draft have very low odds of being “usable” in redraft leagues. In the overwhelming majority of cases, they should be avoided on draft day. As a reminder, a usable player is one who scored 160 or more PPR points over the course of their rookie season. Even…...

Generating Buzz: 3 Deep Sleepers to Monitor Heading Into Camp

It seems that only novices place significant importance on OTAs or minicamps. Novices, or people with undying affection for the performance of players playing sans pads against their teammates — I mean, if you’ve read one tweet about how great DeVante Parker looks in June you’ve pretty much read them all. But sometimes a team, or normally a coach, will give us a nugget about…...

Targeting Rookies in Redraft Leagues: Quarterback Edition

SHOULD REDRAFT PLAYERS TARGET ROOKIES? IN THIS SERIES, DAVE CABAN REVIEWS ROOKIE DATA FROM THE PAST TEN YEARS TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION.   In part 1 of this series, we concluded that rookies drafted outside of Round 3 of the NFL draft have very low odds of being “usable” in redraft leagues.

Targeting Rookies in Redraft Leagues: The Crushing Truth

Should redraft players target rookies? In this series, Dave Caban reviews rookie data from the past ten years to answer this question.   We’ve spent the last four months poring over prospect profiles, evaluating measurables, and analyzing landing spots. While the majority of this research was done through a dynasty focused lens, the excitement it generated will undoubtedly find its way into our redraft processes…....

Hunter Henry: Ready to Breakout Again?

It has been said in the past that NFL stands for Not For Long, as well as No Fun League and of course the lesser used National Football League. All three may be true, but the first pretty much sums up the fleeting nature of the game, and the careers of the men who ply their trade in it. But it seems that after missing…...

I Love Keenan Allen But I Hate His ADP

  If there’s a surefire way to earn our love here at Rotoviz, it is to be uber-productive. Since being drafted in 2013, Keenan Allen has been one of the most productive receivers in the league. He’s one of only fourteen receivers to haul in 400 receptions over that time and he did it in the second fewest games played. Also Allen’s last two seasons…...

Gronk’s Retirement Creates Opportunity, Heightens Risk – Who to Buy, Who to Sell Now

Rob Gronkowski’s retirement leaves a massive gap in New England’s offense — and the fantasy impact of Gronk’s retirement is just as big. The all-time great TE teamed up with Tom Brady to wreak havoc on the league for the last decade, winning many people fantasy championships in the process. Though Gronk’s swan song season was average, the Patriots offense will still look completely different…...

Bounceback Bargains: 3 Late-Round Value Picks for 2019

The NFL Draft will soon be upon us, with the league welcoming an injection of new and exciting talent into its midst. But even with all of these shiny new toys that teams will soon be dying to play with, fantasy owners would be wise to remember that there are still a host of veteran players that can be valuable fantasy assets in the coming…...

Kerryon Johnson: From Fantasy Value to Must Draft

It was a frustrating season for Kerryon Johnson’s fantasy owners in 2018, forced to watch a plodding and ineffective LeGarrette Blount steal carries from the electric rookie. And here we go again in 2019 — Blount gone, replaced by C.J. Anderson, another big runner with designs on destroying your fantasy dreams. But is Anderson’s addition really a disaster for Johnson’s redraft and bestball value? Or does it simply make…...

Jalen Richard Is a Late Round RB to Target in 2019

The Oakland Raiders offense in 2019 will look totally different from the one they trotted out last season. Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook are gone, while Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams are now in Black and Silver. The pass catchers are not the only players who will be different. Marshawn Lynch is at the time of writing still a free agent, while crickets are accompanying the…...

Dede Westbrook: Ready to Breakout or Just a Guy in 2019?

It is far too early to know which players truly won or lost in free agency ahead of the 2019 NFL season. But, even at this early stage, there are some for whom the world appears to be a much better place than it was during the last campaign. One such player is Jaguars wide receiver, Dede Westbrook. Heading into his third NFL season, there…...

Can Robby Anderson Fly High with the Jets in 2019?

There are few people with much good to say about the 2018 New York Jets offense. With good reason, I might add. The team scored the 10th fewest points in the league. They averaged 4.9 yards per play, a mark that only three other teams failed to eclipse. They also amassed a pretty woeful 5.6 net yards per pass attempt, the fifth lowest of all…...

Are People Sleeping on A.J. Green?

One of the hardest teams to figure out is the Cincinnati Bengals. They rarely venture wholeheartedly into free agency. They are not given to major splashes in the draft. They seem to undervalue everything except loyalty, often to a maddening degree. Just look how many chances they gave Vontaze Burfict despite numerous discretions, or how many seasons they allowed Marvin Lewis to occupy their head…...

The Solis Report: Pre-Draft Special

These days, I’m not sleeping well. Every time I close my eyes a certain number burns bright against the red-black darkness of my inner eyelids. I wake up exhausted and drag myself as if underwater to the bathroom, little more than a spectator in my own life. Beneath the white noise of the shower, a low and sinister whisper: “32 Jokes™.” I shake my head and…...

Jordan Howard Regains Some Intrigue With the Philadelphia Eagles

There are many things that are said to never sleep. Evil is one of them, the city of New York is another. Since I became a parent, this tag can be attached to me too. But Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman is another prominent advocate of not needing to rest. In his case, since his return to the front office of the team in 2016,…...

The Best of What’s Left: Remaining Free Agents

Free agency, it seems, has come and gone. A few players have signed the big ticket deals, and will probably be on the market again in two years. Others have been traded to new teams and new locales. The free footballing world’s focus appears set to on the upcoming NFL Draft. Except, there are still some noteworthy free agents who, at the time of writing,…...

Calvin Ridley is the Next…? Historical Comps for the Falcons WR

Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley is next up as we take a look at the most comparable players for the 11 best rookie WRs from the 2018 class. Ridley was the first WR taken in the 2018 NFL Draft, and powered by his 10 touchdowns, he finished with 20.3 percent more fantasy points than the next closest man. Were those results enough to give him elite…...

The Increasing Emphasis on Offensive Line Continuity

Teams are trending toward offensive line continuity in a copycat league where the two squads in the Super Bowl happened to value it as much as anyone. The Patriots and Rams made it six straight conference title winners to avoid multi-position turnover on the starting offensive line.((I count “turnover” as a Week 1 starter who did not enter the previous season as a starter for that…...

Fade Recency Bias – Buy Jamison Crowder at Injury Discount

Injury recency bias is currently providing a massive discount on Jamison Crowder’s potential in New York. Now is a terrific time to buy the new Jets’ slot receiver in every format. Crowder’s Injury History Over the past two years, we’ve seen Crowder play a total of 24 out of 32 possible games. He missed one game in 2017 due to a hamstring strain in Week…...
