March Madness

Welcome to March Madness! And if you think that the madness only happens on the basketball court… you aren’t paying attention.

From the Indianapolis Colts paying way too much for a wide receiver that we will avoid during the fantasy draft, to the Cleveland Browns trading for a wide receiver that we will diligently stalk before…during and after our fantasy drafts.

But just remember, sometimes the addition is really all about subtraction.

Buy or Sell: Derrick Henry

Oh, Derrick Henry. How you vex us all.

Three years ago, fantasy owners (and the Tennessee Titans) thought they were getting a potential workhorse back when the reigning Heisman Trophy winner was taken in the second round. Instead, DeMarco Murray proved to be a better back even in the twilight of his career.

Then, with Murray’s retirement, the Titans brought in scatback Dion Lewis, who looked like the superior option for much of the year. By late in the season, many were willing to concede that Henry, talented as he may appear, just might never put it together.

Winning Strategies for Fantasy Football - Part 1

Free agency is in full swing, and the 2019 NFL Draft will be here before we know it. As all 32 NFL franchises scramble to build out their rosters for next season, it’s a good time for fantasy owners to start looking ahead as well.

While mock drafts will continue to take shape throughout the offseason based on team moves, we can all dig in begin mapping out a game plan for our fantasy drafts. To that end, let’s take a look at some tried and true principles which stand the test of time.

Buy or Sell: Dalvin Cook

Two years ago, Dalvin Cook was ready to take the league by storm. As a rookie, he ranked third in the league in rushing yards (354) through four games and looked every bit as electrifying as his college tape suggested when the Minnesota Vikings picked him 41st overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Then, in Week 4, he tore his ACL and missed the rest of the season. Last year, a lingering hamstring injury and frustrating timeshare with fellow back Latavius Murray disappointed fantasy owners once again in what was supposed to be a bounce back campaign.

2019 NFL Free Agency - Part 1

Okay, so we could really just call this edition WTF is going on here!?! But I think we will just stick with free agency edition (for now). Remember trades and acquisitions are happening at a rapid pace, but we got you.

There is a lot of movement that is going to impact your fantasy football drafts (that sound you hear is all the mock drafts being ripped and redone). And while some of these acquisitions the player wasn’t a free agent (yeah, we are looking at you Antonio Brown), they have been acquired during the free agency period.

To make it slightly easier we will do this by positions:

2019 NFL Combine

The NFL season officially begins March 13, but we know that football never ends, and that especially goes for fantasy football.

First the Combine

The Combine isn’t always about the athletes that are there. The ripple effect is what is important to us:
