One of the more popular fantasy football draft strategies the past few seasons has been "Zero RB", and it's not very hard to see why. There's a shortage of true workhorse running backs that you can rely on in the NFL and the league is continually moving gradually away from smashmouth football and places emphasis on precision passing.
The biggest lesson you can learn playing dynasty fantasy football is that you CANNOT only rely on “young players.” Let me say it one more time but in a different way. To have a successful dynasty team, you should have veterans sprinkled through your roster to help stabilize and to create depth to your roster.
Week 13's edition of Monday Night Football features two teams with records below .500. Despite their record, the Indianapolis Colts (5-6) have a chance to stay in the playoff race for the AFC South. The New York Jets (3-8) on the other hand, are well out of contention.
2016 was supposed to be Tony Romo's year. The Dallas Cowboys added Ezekiel Elliott to their offense with the fourth overall pick in the draft. They had the league's No. 1 ranked offensive line and a borderline-elite wideout in Dez Bryant returning. Plus, a serviceable defense that could keep a game close.

With that free agency period looming, now is a great time to start getting familiar with what names are available, and what potential teams could be a good fit. We'll start our look at the 2016 NFL free agent market with a breakdown of the running backs.
What do we do about Matt Forte? What should we make of Dez Bryant's return to stardom? Is Darren McFadden for real? Read on for answers.
While standard leagues remain the most popular fantasy format, every year more and more owners turn to PPR leagues to add a new twist to the season. These leagues add value to possession receivers and slot receivers while devaluing running backs who don’t contribute much on third down.
Matt Forte regularly gets mentioned among the league's elite running backs. He is one of the most versatile backs in the NFL, does most of his talking on the field and regularly churns out eye-popping stats.
