It's been a long offseason friends, but we are inching closer and closer to the start of training camp and the excitement that comes with the dawn of a new NFL and fantasy football season. Maybe it's the start of that excitement, or maybe it's the... more

Earlier this week, I wrote about "the theory of regression" and how it has affected running backs the season after scoring double-digit touchdowns for the first time in their careers (2006-2014). Suffice it to say, the research didn't elicit a whole... more

The theory of regression towards the mean states that if a variable is extreme on one measurement, it will generally be closer to average on subsequent measurements. Similarly, if the variable is extreme on secondary measurements, it was generally cl... more

Greatness is difficult to achieve, and it can be even more difficult to duplicate. That can often be true in the world of sports, where one season of greatness creates heightened expectations for what the future might hold. Look at Brady Anderson,... more

We are in the Information Age, friends. Anything you need to know about -- from "who was the 33rd President of the United States?" (Harry S. Truman) to "why does cilantro taste like soap to me?" (it could be genetic) -- is right at your fingertips.... more

Predicting the future is difficult. Even the infamous seer Nostradamus blew more than his share of predictions. Come on, do you think even he could have foreseen that Doug Baldwin would go off like he did last season? I think not! Whether it's real... more

"Ezekiel Elliott is worth a first-round pick in fantasy football drafts." That statement has drawn a whole lot of attention in the fantasy world. Countless fans believe it's too soon to draft a rookie running back because he's never done anything a... more

The 2016 NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror, most of the big-name free agents have re-signed or signed with new teams, and Tom Brady has been suspended ... again. As a result, we have a pretty good picture in terms of the players and their roles (or... more

The 2016 NFL Draft is in the books, so we now have a much clearer picture of how all 32 rosters will look heading into training camp and the preseason. And while the rookies now need to be evaluated for their individual fantasy value, owners also hav... more

Top 20 fantasy rookies May 02, 2016

If we have learned anything in recent seasons, it's that rookies can come in and make an instant impact both in the stat sheets and in fantasy football. Owners who fielded David Johnson, Jameis Winston and Amari Cooper last season can attest to that.... more

April

The NFL Draft is a fun time of the offseason for fantasy fans. You can't peruse the world wide web without finding countless mock drafts that might or might not mirror (at least somewhat) what the actual first round could resemble. Rarely though do y... more

The National Football League has been abuzz in recent weeks, as two blockbuster trades have shaken up the top of the 2016 NFL Draft. With those deals in the books, we can predict with relative certainty that both the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia... more

Fantasy football analytical topics have sure grown in recent years. From breaking down a wide receiver's route tree to a player's average fantasy points per touch totals, there are oodles of new ways to determine a player's value. But not all topics... more

All-Time Fantasy Draft April 11, 2016

One of my favorite things to do, besides watch the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, WWE events, Star Wars and super hero movies (yep, I am a dork) is to look back at the NFL's historical stats and spin them into the world of fantasy football. So wit... more

Last week I went to Dallas for the first time ever, and it wasn't to see the Cowboys. Instead, I was there for WrestleMania 32. Yes, I've been a Cowboys fan since I was eight but I had never made it to Big D, the old Texas Stadium or Jerry World (whi... more

Tight end was supposed to have been one of the thinnest positions in fantasy football last season. Instead, it thrived. A total of four players recorded over 1,000 yards, and six finished with over 150-plus fantasy points. So, can we find any hidde... more

March

Wide receivers have become more important than ever to the success of fantasy football owners. You'll see that in most 2016 drafts, where as many as four wideouts could be selected in the first 10 overall picks. In the third part of a four-part serie... more

Last week, I discussed and ranked which quarterbacks were the most efficient when it came to scoring fantasy points during the 2015 campaign. Now it's time to move on to the running backs, who have taken a step back in positional importance in the w... more

Points. Points. Points. Score a lot of them in fantasy football, and you're considered an elite player. But here's the thing ... point totals, high or low, can sometimes deceive us. To find the real truth about a player's value or production, you hav... more

March Madness is in full effect right now ... well, unless you're a fan of the Michigan State Spartans or Arizona Wildcats. But for fantasy football dorks like me, the madness began with the start of the NFL's free-agency period earlier in the month.... more

The Dallas Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines in the National Football League, making their team a prime destination for a running back to come in and make a statistical impact. In 2015, veteran Darren McFadden was one of a mere seven runne... more

A few weeks back, I published a column about rookie runners and their success (or failures) one season out of college. Since 2005, a total of 19 rookie running backs have finished in the top 20 in fantasy points at the position. Of those backs, 13 (... more

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice..." You know how the rest of that goes, and it pertains to both the real world and the world of fantasy football. So when I tell you that C.J. Anderson should be considered a valuable asset in 2016 drafts,... more

The NFL's free agency frenzy has been one wild ride, as a number of big-name players have changed teams (and in many cases, fantasy values). There were also other moves around the league, including a major trade and the suspension of a talented wide... more

Oh how quickly things can change in the National Football League ... and in fantasy football. It was just a year ago when fantasy pundits all agreed that the tight end position, aside from the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Greg Olsen and T... more

The New York Jets didn't take long to replace Chris Ivory , adding veteran running back Matt Forte to their offensive attack. The fantasy superstar should move right into a featured role for Gang Green and retain his stock as a valuable runner in fa... more

Fantasy fans, start your engines ... because the NFL's offseason has blasted out of the gates. On the same day that fantasy superstar Peyton Manning announced his retirement , NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Philadelphia Eagles have... more

Offseason? What offseason? The NFL season isn't over after the Super Bowl. Nothing is over! With the NFL Scouting Combine complete and free agency on the horizon, fantasy owners need to keep tabs on all of the important news, notes and player move... more

The wide receiver position has become every bit as important as running back in this new age of fantasy football. The NFL is now a passing league after all, as more wideouts are putting up solid totals on a seasonal basis. A lot of the top receivers... more

February

There's no doubt about it ... the NFL has become a passing league with quarterbacks putting up massive totals. Heck, we saw more field generals throw for 30 or more touchdowns this past season than ever before. You could have won your league with Kir... more

Fantasy football has become a 365-day-a-year passion for NFL fans, so it's never too soon to think about player rankings and how those rankings will equate in a mock draft. With that in mind, here's the first in what will be a series of one-man,... more

Fabiano's fantasy man crushes February 12, 2016

Love is in the air! No, I'm not talking about the love between two people that results in a Valentine's Day trip to Jared. I'm talking about the love between a man or woman with their fantasy football players. I've been professing my fantasy... more

The NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2016" series has returned. Tune in each Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network to see the next set of 10 players revealed on the list! Fantasy football isn't just a seasonal topic of conversation anymore... more

Cam Newton might have failed to reach his ultimate goal in terms of real football, as the Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, but Superman sure was a champion for fantasy owners this past season. The veteran quarterback set a new ca... more

The 2015 Pro Bowl rosters are all but set, and the NFL's top players will face off in a tradition that started in 1970. The coaches for that game were John Madden of the Oakland Raiders and Dick Nolan of the San Francisco 49ers. The contest also had... more

We are the verge of the 50th anniversary of the greatest sporting event on the planet, the Super Bowl! So in an effort to combine two of the greatest passions of sports fans, the Super Bowl and (of course) fantasy football, here's a look at the top 1... more

Marshawn Lynch has been one of the most productive and exciting running backs in the National Football League, and fantasy football, for the better part of the last five seasons. Heck, the man caused an earthquake during a 2011 NFL Wild Card playoff... more

Stats, stats and more stats. That's what fantasy football is all about. And when you're coming off as unpredictable an NFL season as we saw in 2015, well, there's going to be more than a few wild stats that are great fodder for the water cooler. More... more

Did your fantasy football season end too soon? Were you left to dwell on a lost campaign after Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady smashed your championship dreams? Did every running back on your entire roster get hurt? Well, your fantasy season doesn't have... more

The 2015 fantasy football season was without question one of the strangest and most unpredictable we have seen. It saw the continued rise of the quarterback position, and a massive decline at running back due to countless injuries and an overall drop... more
