Week 5 Fantasy Deep Tight-end Flex Start

Week 5 Fantasy Deep Tight-end Flex Start

Every now and then I decide to stick my neck and see how well I’ve got this analysis done. I’m a die-hard football watcher and numbers cruncher, which is why I do so well at fantasy football. To me it’s not just about the stats, but about how well they play on the field. I understand which corners are making plays, which receivers are getting open, as well as who’s getting the chances, and then I put that altogether and figure out who I want to start. I love when I see a situation that I feel is going to develop for a guy that no one even knows yet. Every year I pick out a couple of gems and I think I’ve got one here that may pay dividends for more than one week. If you want to take a shot on a deep fantasy flex start player for week 5, then here’s some options that should get your attention. Continue reading “Week 5 Fantasy Deep Tight-end Flex Start”

Hot Off The Wire – Week 3 Deep Sleepers

Hot Off The Wire – Week 3 Deep Sleepers

There’s a lot of places you can go for waiver pickups and other fantasy football advice. It’s not like every media outlet and fantasy website isn’t covering and talking about the same players. We can all see who are the top waiver adds for week 3 by logging into our fantasy systems and clicking on top waiver adds. It’s pretty obvious that owners are picking up James Starks, Matt Jones, and Travis Benjamin so I’m not going to write up another article saying the same thing. It’s overkill and quite frankly not very helpful if you play in deep formats where owners are already up on these guys or the systems allow for players to be grabbed at will so they are not available. What would you do then? Which of the available guys should you be targeting for week 3 to help your fantasy roster? Well don’t panic, I’ve already done the research for you and have some deep sleepers that would be available in most fantasy leagues that can contribute to your roster in week 3.

Hot Off The Wire – Week 2 Waiver Pickups

Hot Off The Wire – Week 2 Waiver Pickups

Your team laid an egg in week 1 of fantasy football.  Your top players got hurt or didn’t perform like you should.  Not to worry because that’s what week 2 is for.  Here’s some guys you should be targeting on the waiver wire to help your team in week 2 of the fantasy season and beyond.   Keep in mind that it is only the first week and guys that might have gone off this week, may not do so the following week, as well as guys on your team may end up having a great game the next time out.  Don’t just drop a guy because he has one bad week, but rather that you see a better value or more production coming from a player on the wire versus your team.  If that’s the case, then go for it, but be sure the player your dropping doesn’t have some trade value first.

Pounding The Rock

Pounding The Rock

There’s going to plenty of speculation this year when it comes to drafting a top running back.  The general consensus is that the number one pick isn’t what it used to be and comes with a lot more uncertainty than it has in the past.   Not that there isn’t plenty of good option to choose from, but there just isn’t that clear #1 that we typically see.  We probably would’ve if Bell wasn’t suspended for the first 2 games, but nonetheless, he’s going to be solid producer the rest of the year and into the playoffs.  Given the option available to owners it’s a good time to talk about the running backs and who’s gong to be pounding the rock in 2015 fantasy football.
