At this very moment, I can guarantee you that 3 things are true about fantasy football Twitter: Someone is telling someone else that their opinion is total crap. Mike Wright has no blue checkmark next to his name. There are numerous posts telling you that some 3rd string guy should be much higher on your draft board. #3, in a …

Like most of you, I was recently listening to the FAFQ #2 pod. During the show, the guys talk about roster construction at the draft and made it clear that they do not draft back-ups at 1 starter positions. This practice got me to thinking: “Why draft a defense at all?” So I dug into DEF ADP vs the guys …

A few years ago, if I had told you that Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson would find themselves unemployed on the same day that probably would’ve ended our conversation pretty abruptly. Charles was a top 10 back in 2014 and Peterson was #2 in 2015. Yet, we find ourselves in that very situation as both were given their walking papers …

The changing narrative around Dez Bryant is enough to make one’s head spin. Is he an elite WR that is borderline uncoverable? Is he a diva that does what he wants, when he wants? Does his lack of a consistent training program lead to / prolong his injuries? This past season did very little to streamline anyone’s thoughts on Bryant. …

Jordan, In this world of fantasy football, we move most players around like pawns on a chessboard. We don’t care about how long we have them as long as they get us what we want, but some players are better than that. You, Jordan Reed, were better than that. Your dominance on the gridiron was awe inspiring…and rule inspiring. If …

IT’S CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK! If you’re reading this you’re either in the big game or you are starting research on DEF/ST for 2017, either way: Great Job! Week 15 was as volatile for team defense as the entire season had been. Minnesota, the 1st place DEF/ST coming into the week, finished with negative points and probably cost some of you a …

The fantasy playoffs have started and Week 14 is in the books. My predictions last week were a microcosm of my entire season, some teams I expected to have a hard time did great (Chiefs and Giants), some teams I predicted to have solid weeks failed (Jaguars), but I also predicted that the Falcons would make Goff miserable and man, …

I would like to start this week with a humble apology. After writing this article for 12 weeks, I’ve been wrong before. But never have I been as spectacularly wrong as I was about the Miami defense in Week 13. I made a joke on Twitter that when I mentioned that Vegas had the Miami @ Baltimore game as it’s …

Sometimes picking which DEF/ST to play is as easy as “Follow the bad QB play”. Of the top 10 teams in Week 12, 7 played opponents with less than exceptional QBs. The Browns make an appearance in our top performers for the 3rd time in as many weeks…unfortunately, they’ve been the opponent all 3 times. But, for the first time …

As much as I love to tell you that defenses are unpredictable, every now and then the fantasy gods throw me a bone. In Week 11, the #1 unit played the Browns and every one of my Starts finished in the top 10. If you played the matchups this week, you probably ended up with a high score out of …
