Is Josh Allen the next Mitch Trubisky? July 10, 2020

Is it possible that the Bills are coming off another playoff appearance (maybe even a win?) and Josh Allen has made real strides as an NFL passer? Sure. But it’s just as possible that Allen stagnates and costs the team wins. It’s possible that the Bil...

Say “No” to the Veto! Ban the Trade Veto July 4, 2020

Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from trade vetoes. The capability to veto trades was originally designed to prevent collusion. Collusi...

Cam Newton to New England: Rapid Reaction June 30, 2020

If you’ve been hiding under a rock this week, Cam Newton has signed with the New England Patriots. There was plenty of pre-draft speculation that Belichick would sign Newton prior to the NFL draft, but his patience has paid off. Now that the quarterback...

DFF Redraft Staff Half-PPR Mock Review June 29, 2020

The DFF team recently did a half-PPR redraft mock. The draft was for a typical 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 2 Flex, 1 TE, 1 D/ST redraft format with no special bonuses. I want to go through my draft and strategy, round-by-round, and talk through what I was thinking ...

Redraft Team Focus: Bengals June 22, 2020

Green comes with numerous question marks. However, let’s not forget how successful Green has been as a fantasy asset when healthy and on the field despite playing with mediocre quarterback Andy Dalton. In 2018, Green was the WR8 in Weeks 1-8, averaging ...

Brandin Cooks: A Must-Own in 2020 June 19, 2020

As you can see, Cooks has been a highly productive receiver with every stop. It doesn’t matter if he was new to the roster or not. He hasn’t always been the most targeted receiver on his team. Only twice has this happened in his career. Once with the ...

Adam Thielen: Top-10 Receiver June 18, 2020

In 2016 Adam Thielen came just short of the 1,000-yard receiving mark and was able to bring in five touchdowns. He led the team in receiving yards and only dropped two passes out of 92 targets. Thielen was the fifth-best wide receiver in terms of catch pe...

Redraft Team Focus: Raiders June 13, 2020

Carr wasn’t as bad as some might think in 2019, as he finished as the QB14, ahead of players like Baker Mayfield, Kirk Cousins, and Philip Rivers. However, because he played all 16 games while some other quarterbacks missed games, he only finished 22nd ...

Redraft SF/TE Premium Mock Draft: TE Strategy June 12, 2020

There’s a big strategic difference between Superflex and tight end premium. Superflex requires or at least allows an extra starter at the quarterback position. Since quarterbacks score far more fantasy points than any other position, it almost always ma...

Don’t Sleep on Jordan Howard May 31, 2020

Jordan Howard seems to be the black sheep running back of the NFL and the dynasty/fantasy community. I see very little love out there in the Twitterverse for the former top 10 back and I’m certain dynasty owners have found it difficult to move him for a...

Redraft Team Focus: Browns May 28, 2020

I see Chubb as very similar to Derrick Henry. Chubb had 298 carries in 2018 compared to Henry’s 303, so they were close in carry count. The significant differences were that Chubb had 36 receptions while Henry had only 18, but Henry scored 18 total touc...

Redraft Team Focus: Panthers May 27, 2020

Despite the Panthers’ poor quarterback play in 2019 from Cam Newton, Kyle Allen, and Will Grier, Moore flourished. He had 87 receptions on 135 targets for 1,175 yards and four touchdowns, and he finished just behind McCaffrey in targets and led the Pant...

In this article, @DFF_Karp and I will dig into the debate on Juju Smith-Schuster’s value for redraft leagues. @DFF_Karp is ready to lock him in as a high-end wide receiver two while I am proceeding with an abundance of caution.

The Pro-JuJu Take May 23, 2020

Last time in this debate series, @DFF_Ztrain and I broke down the two-sided Derrius Guice debate. He took the side of a third-year breakout for Guice while I took the side that Guice will be a 2020 redraft bust. This time, we’re going to debate JuJu Smi...

Redraft Team Focus: Houston Texans May 22, 2020

I’ll split up the fantasy assets into three categories: high-end assets, usable contributors, and dart throws. I’ll reference my PPR redraft rankings at the time of writing, which are here. If you want to read my previous work in this series, the full...
