by Ray Kuhn After all of the weather concerns that we had entering action on Monday, there was just one game (Tampa Bay at Kansas City) that was cancelled. In a few other games there were some minor rain delays, but nothing that ultimately impacted the action from a fantasy perspective. Let’s take a look at some of the performances, good or bad, that stood out from Monday’s games. 1) Preston Tucker Has a Big Day The Astros (read more...)

2015 Fantasy Rankings: Top 15 Tight Ends
Tue, Jul 07, 2015 Category: FOOTBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Tight end is always one of the toughest positions to plan for and fantasy owners lost one of the more dependable options for the first few weeks of the season as Antonio Gates was lost to suspension.  Of course there are plenty of high upside alternatives available, but the question is which risks are worth taking?  Let’s take a look: Rob Gronkowski – New England Patriots Jimmy Graham – Seattle Seahawks Julius Thomas (read more...)

Who is worth the speculative add?

by Jeremy Tiermini “Durability is part of what makes a great athlete.” Bill Russell This quote applies perfectly to the first player in this week’s Fantasy Training Room, who was placed on the disabled list for the first time in his career. Miguel Cabrera (DET 1B) Cabrera left Friday’s game against the Blue Jays after straining his left calf running towards second base on a 3-2 pitch. An MRI on Saturday showed a Grade III strain, which is the (read more...)

by Ray Lin While patient fantasy owners have gotten some starting pitchers back from the DL, like Jose Fernandez and Matt Cain, they’ve also sustained some massive gut punches to their outfield with multi-month absences expected for Giancarlo Stanton and George Springer. That’s not to mention managers who also lost Byron Buxton and Rusney Castillo to injury or demotion. Stanton, who had been the #3 ranked outfielder on the ESPN Player Rater, went down first after experiencing (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Once upon a time the New Orleans Saints had a dynamic player in the backfield who was an absolute PPR monster.  While Reggie Bush isn’t quite the same player today, looking back at what he did over the first two years of his career is amazing, especially from a receiving perspective: 2006 – 88 catches (119 targets), 742 yards, 2 TD 2007 – 73 catches (99 targets), 417 yards, 2 TD That 2007 (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Something clearly needed to be done regarding the Falcons running back situation.  The numbers their backs posted in 2014 told us that: Steven Jackson – 707 yards and 6 TD (3.7 YPC) Devonta Freeman – 248 yards and 1 TD (3.8 YPC) Jacquizz Rodgers – 217 yards and 1 TD (3.7 YPC) Gone is Jackson and Rodgers, which would’ve left Freeman and Antone Smith on the depth chart.  We say would’ve, because the team (read more...)

by Ray Lin Draymond Green may not be the only Green to surprise this year and come through with big money fantasy production. With the shocking announcement of Antonio Gates’ 4 game PED suspension, the window of opportunity for Ladarius Green has swung wide open for the opening month of the NFL season. If you recall my buzzy TE article from last Fall I highlighted Green as one of the Top 5 tight end prospects for fantasy (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Jeremy Maclin is coming off a career year, setting career highs in receptions (85), yards (1,318) and yards per reception (15.5) while also tying his career high in TD (10).  There’s a good chance that he would have been labeled an offseason “loser” regardless of where he landed, outside of re-upping with Chip Kelly and Philadelphia.  Of course, it may not have gotten any worse than seeing him reunite with (read more...)
