Kickers are usually the last pick of a fantasy football draft. No one cares about a kicker. It's an afterthought. Heck, if a player needs to be dropped, most people will drop their kicker without hesitation in order to pick up a position player...

The big new NFL news of the week is undoubtedly Tom Brady's four-game suspension being vacated by a federal judge. But what the's fantasy impact you ask? Not that much in my opinion, as Brady moves up just one spot, from No. 13 to 12,...

Just one more week of NFL preseason action and for the most part, fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. The vast majority of starters won't even suit up for the final preseason game, so from here out it's all about injuries (Randall...

Randall Cobb
While we knew the starters for most teams would play in the third NFL preseason game, we simply hoped no major injuries would crop up. Obviously no one ever wants a player to get hurt, but for those in fantasy football leagues that have...

Unless your fantasy football league doesn't use them, kickers need to be drafted too. And just like any other football player kickers are subject to injury and/or competition. That has been the case this preseason as Pittsburgh's Shaun...

Typically Defenses/Special Teams (DST) are the second-to-last position that is drafted in fantasy football. DSTs are undervalued and usually for good reason. In many leagues, you get points for your defense based on how many points they allow, plus...

Martavis Bryant
Pittsburgh wide receiver Martavis Bryant’s recently announced four-game suspension could have a larger fantasy impact than teammate Le’Veon Bell’s two-game sentence. Bryant was a big playmaker for the Steelers alongside All-Pro...

Running backs are arguably the most valuable position for any fantasy owner, and as such, are targeted early and often during drafts, and that’s no different in NFL or college fantasy leagues. As a result, owners focused on other...

Every year, there are countless fantasy studs that prospective owners pencil in at the top of their draft boards, both in NFL and college fantasy leagues. The performance of these types of players is generally what makes or breaks a fantasy season...

Trying to predict the future is hard, especially when it comes to fantasy football, but extremely fun at the same time. But it can also be supremely frustrating. So why do it at all? Well if you are reading this, you love making predictions....

While it's never sexy to talk about kickers, for most fantasy football leagues, they are a part of the lineup. Kickers are usually the last position taken during fantasy drafts, and for good reason — they don't give you a lot of...

Injuries are never a good thing, but especially when it involves a top-five fantasy wide receiver. Jordy Nelson's season-ending torn ACL is just not a blow to Green Bay, but also to the fantasy outlook for Aaron Rodgers and certainly the wide...
