by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Obviously there have been a lot of disappointing running backs this season, but does that mean that they are simply droppable? Or, should we keep them stashed and hope that they figure things out? Let’s take a look and try to decipher a few of the situations: Zac Stacy – St. Louis Rams A fantasy hero a year ago, he has quickly fallen to complete fantasy zero. He clearly has fallen (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn Basketball knowledge is vital to success in fantasy basketball. Kind of goes without saying, right? But there is more to it. One big piece to the puzzle is the draft and how you manage it. Yes, you can recover from a bad draft, but wouldn’t you rather start from a position of success? When it comes to any cheat sheet or set of projections, there is no such thing as 100% accuracy. I know, (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) The news broke recently that the Tennessee Titans are turning the page, inserting sixth round draft pick Zach Mettenberger into the starting lineup. We all knew that Charlie Whitehurst wasn’t the answer and, while Jake Locker could ultimately return to the starting role, injuries have continued to plague him and he’s generally failed to produce. Mettenberger made huge strides in his senior season at LSU, throwing for 3,082 yards, 22 TD (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) We all know the type of prospect Addison Russell is, but he could be moving positions? Bruce Levine recently sent the following Tweet: “Theo on Shortstops – Told Addison Russsell to get ready to play multiple positions” With Starlin Castro and Javier Baez also in the organization (at least for now), it makes sense. Reports have Russell getting exposure at second base in the Arizona Fall League, where we saw Baez play (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) No matter how good the teams, there are always ample lessons learned from any NFL game.  While both Peyton Manning (25-35, 286 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT) and Philip Rivers (30-41, 252 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT) performed about where we would’ve expected, whose performances grabbed our attention?  Let’s take a look at five things we learned from last night’s action: 1. Ronnie Hillman deserves to keep the Broncos lead (read more...)

by Will Overton There are certain categories that can at times get overlooked, especially late in drafts. Two of the most overlooked stats are blocks and steals. I think at times there is a general assumption that all big men block shots and all guards and wingmen get steals. This is an assumption that’ll get you in trouble. All categories in rotisserie and head to head are equal in the way they count in the standings. So (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) You would think that games against the Denver Broncos are going to be shootouts, given the point totals they are capable of. That should mean big numbers for the wide receivers on the other team… It’s a good theory, but it hasn’t been the case in 2014. Denver’s defense has allowed the fifth fewest receiving yards to opposing wide outs, at 890 yards. That alone is a knock against any player (read more...)

Three Running Backs I’m Trying To Avoid For Week 8
Thu, Oct 23, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) These are not players that I am 100% sitting this week, depending on my alternatives (we discussed those in our Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em column).  Instead these are guys I am reconsidering having them in my lineup for a variety of reasons: Tre Mason – St. Louis Rams at Kansas City It’s going to be easy to hop on the Tre Mason bandwagon, especially after his 85 yards and 1 TD (read more...)

by Will Overton The preseason is meant for fringe guys to rise to the surface for fantasy owners and emerge as useful fantasy options. One guy who is doing just that this preseason is Otto Porter Jr in Washington. A year ago Porter was picked third overall in the NBA draft, but injuries limited him to just 37 games and he never really had a chance to be a contributor. A year later Porter had become a (read more...)
