Solid To The End – Late High Value Wide Receiver Draft Picks

There are always high profile fantasy players that get quickly snatched up in the draft. These players often go in the first five to seven rounds and typically put up consistent points for their owners. For most cases they are the top players in the league or the ones that owners feel are the the most valuable for their fantasy team. After these players get drafted, there are a slew of talented players that would be decent for a roster spot, but which ones actually make sense since many in those groups put up similar numbers.  Later in the draft, it’s important to be looking for players that have higher value and capable of putting up decent numbers on a regular basis so that if you plug them in you will feel confident.  The following are some players to consider later in the draft as solid back-up players for bye weeks or in case a starter gets hurt. more

Drafting Tight-ends Not As Easy As Numbers

When it comes to the fantasy football world, there are some positions that don’t get as much attention or credit in the fantasy draft as others.  Star positions like running backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks take center stage during the draft and dominate most of it early and often.  Positions like kickers, defenses, and even tight-ends get thrown to the wayside while teams try to stock their benches with loads of talent for the bye-weeks. Of course there are the exceptions, but guys like Jimmy and Vernon often go in the first 5 rounds because of their ability to put up numbers comparable to other players in that draft spot. Keep in mind, drafting tight-end isn’t as easy as numbers because of the value in the drop-off at the position makes certain players more important.  However, once you get passed the top 5, it’s easy to start to think about waiting much longer in the draft to fill this position. The following are some rankings, average numbers, and analysis on where and when tight-ends should be drafted based on their potential and value to the fantasy team. more

2014 Fantasy Football Draft: Second Round Picks

With the first round completed, it’s time to keep it going and see who is the next pick to pull of the board as we start the second round of 2014 fantasy football draft.  Keep in mind, at this point, I’m assuming all of the guys in the first round are gone, but in case any of them are still available I would immediately jump on them with any of the next spots.  The guys I called out in the first round are the true number one picks and should be taken by this point. more
