Cameron Meredith Fantasy Wide receiver Cameron Meredith signed a $9.6 million deal with the New Orleans Saints after the Chicago Bears declined to match the offer sheet this offseason. Meredith missed the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL. The injury came after his 2016 breakout season where he posted 66 catches for 888 yards […]
Dynasty Value Alvin Kamara 2018 Before the 2017 season, Alvin Kamara was not viewed as the dynasty dynamo he is now. Kamara was not a ballyhooed first-round pick to the likes of Saquon Barkley, but rather a running back that resided in a split backfield at Tennessee, in which he never amassed more than 143 […]
The New Orleans Saints were one of the surprise teams of the 2017 NFL season, as most had them finishing outside of the playoffs, and envisioned Sean Payton morphing into a young Jeff Fisher with a third 7-9 season in a row.

Most are just going to roll their eyes at the idea of another three-headed monster backfield. However, Kamara […]

We have reached the midpoint of what has been an NFL season full of surprises. With every team having already played at least seven games, the picture for award season is rounding into shape and becoming clearer by the day.
It is an almost unavoidable situation in the early part of the season when a player that you drafted performs below your expectations. This isn't a negative reflection upon you, but it does test your patience.
