Week 4 Rankings (2014): Top 25 Quarterbacks
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 Category: FOOTBALL
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) As we head into Week 4 (a week where six teams get their bye week) there are changes across the NFL.  We’ve already discussed the two rookie quarterbacks ready to take the reigns of their organizations (Blake Bortles & Teddy Bridgewater), while Ryan Tannehill, Jake Locker and Ryan Fitzpatrick could all be on the hot seat.  How do those situations fit into this week’s rankings?  Let’s take a look: Drew (read more...)

by Will Overton The summer’s biggest storyline was what the Cavaliers did by signing LeBron James and trading for Kevin Love. So far we have looked at what these moves mean for the Cavaliers big guns, and we have looked at what it means for Ricky Rubio in Minnesota. The last piece of breaking down these moves is looking at what it all means for the Miami Heat minus LeBron James. The King has gradually become more (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn/Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) If baseball was in competition with Monday Night Football on the last Monday of the regular season for your attention, then we have you covered. With every passing day, every strikeout takes on a greater importance for those still competing to finish in the money. Even if your 2014 team is out of contention, that doesn’t mean you should stop paying attention to baseball as what happens this year (read more...)

by Will Overton Week 3 has come and gone, all but tonight’s Monday Night clash. It was another week where the picture of fantasy football became a little bit clearer and a little bit more cloudy all at the same time. We saw two rookie QB’s come into play yesterday and both look like they’re going to be here to stay for a while. Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles are both talented QB’s, but outside of (read more...)

by Matthew Gordan Due to how Buffalo utilizes their backs, none of them are guaranteed starters. Unless one breaks a big one, most weeks they’ll cancel each other out and you’ll have pedestrian fantasy numbers. Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller are not bad options at all. In fact that are really good players, actually. However adjust your expectations if you’re thinking you have a sure fire RB2 on your hands. If another owner sees one of (read more...)

by Richard Justmann Greetings one more time, my Young Apprentices. We’ve had great conversations with the ‘real or fake’ articles. Alas, the baseball season is nigh unto completionas you have only a few days to pull out your championship. So here is the final volume of FAKE or REAL. - Jason Kipnis: FAKE. Oh, Jason, my Jason! Where art thy hits? - Freddie Freeman: FAKE. Desultory ending for all involved in Atlanta. - J.D. Martinez: REAL. How did (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn I don’t think it is a stretch to say that Jabari Parker is the best player on the Milwaukee Bucks. When doing overall rankings for this season, Larry Sanders comes out ahead, but that is based on the fact that he is a center who blocks shots at a high level while rebounding well and adding some scoring. Aside from Sanders, the Bucks do have OJ Mayo and Brandon Knight in their backcourt, but (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) We saw two rookie quarterbacks make their debuts yesterday in Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater, but what is their ultimate value for 2014?  Let’s take a look: Blake Bortles – Jacksonville Jaguars He’s already been named the starter moving forward, as he played fairly well in his first taste of action against the Colts.  Throwing the ball 24 times he completed 14 passes for 223 yards, 2 TD and 2 INT.  (read more...)

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) It was surprising to see the Yankees bring back Masahiro Tanaka, but he pitched well in his return allowing 1 ER on 5 H and 0 BB, striking out 4, needing 70 pitches over 5.1 IP against the Blue Jays.  Does it really ease any potential concerns about 2015, though?  Speaking of New York starting pitchers, Jacob deGrom continued his pursuit of an NL Rookie of the Year Award allowing (read more...)

by Ray Kuhn This is it. After a long, interesting and exciting season we have reached the end. If you aren’t in contention for a top spot then your focus has likely shifted to football and next season, in no particular order. If you are still sweating out every strikeout and walk, then this is certainly no time to relax. The problem is that much like fantasy owners, aside from the teams that still in playoff (read more...)
