The first week of the NFL and fantasy football season is in the books and every league likely has a few owners panicking over the underperformance of guys like Adrian Peterson and Dez Bryant. But it truly is only one week and it’s no time to lose faith in your early-round picks or make hasty roster decisions. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
After three action-packed days, the 2016 NFL Draft is in the books. Below are draft grades for all 32 teams, including an overview of their respective hauls and thoughts on some of the potential ramifications for fantasy football purposes. Disagree with my assessment on your team’s draft? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter and we can discuss.
It’s championship week in most season-long fantasy football leagues and those contending for titles likely don’t want to get too cute with their lineups at this point.
This weekend marks the first time in eight weeks that fantasy football owners don’t have to contend with NFL byes. But with the rash of injuries that continue to ravage the league, deep sleepers will continue to provide value to season-long players, while offering important differentiator potential in daily fantasy contests.
It’s Week 10 of the NFL season and year-long fantasy football leagues are entering the home stretch. Whether you’re fighting for a regular-season championship or trying to find a way into the fantasy postseason, hitting on a few PPR sleepers can give you a leg up on your competition.
After a lackluster Week 6, I promised a bounce-back effort in Week 7 and the PPR Sleepers delivered. While I was frustrated by the incomprehensible zero-catch-on-one-target performance from Dorial Green Beckham, several of last week’s picks came through in a big way.
The PPR Sleepers have enjoyed a lot of success this season, but Week 6 was not one of my better efforts. Stephon Diggs was the #1 recommendation last week and he came through in a big way with seven catches for 129 yards. But aside from he and Riley Cooper (three catches for 76 yards and a touchdown on Monday night), I have to admit that it was pretty ugly out there. Time to get back on track in Week 7!
It was another solid effort for the PPR Sleepers in Week 5, with very strong performances from Willie Snead (6 catches for 141 yards), Jamison Crowder (8 catches for 87 yards), and Theo Riddick (10 catches for 53 yards and a score). Hopefully, one or more of last week’s picks helped lift your team to victory in season-long and daily fantasy leagues.
After a little time off for vacation, I’m back on the PPR sleeper grind for Week 5! At the NFL season’s quarter pole, byes start to become more of an issue with at least four teams on a break in each of the next seven weeks.
Week 2 was very kind to my PPR Sleeper picks, which included big performances from David Johnson, Crockett Gillmore, Charles Clay (who found the endzone) and of course Colts Donte Moncrief, the number #1 on my board.
