The Running Backs Show- 8.4.17

For the next few weeks we will go position by position to talk about strategies for drafting each position, which players we are avoiding and who we think you should target. We have already covered quarterbacks and wide receivers but this week we will be talk about running backs. In this episode, Courtney and Ashley can not agree whether or not you should draft Marshawn Lynch. Ashley thinks his floor with the Raiders is still high enough to draft him, while Courtney is not convinced that he will play the whole season and thinks competition is underway. We also put some of the Todd Gurley doubt to rest. Doug Martin on the other hand, there are doubts a...

Running Backs Preseason Show- 7.28.16

With the quarterbacks and wide receivers down, it is time to discuss the running backs. Whereas the wide receiver position is deep with talent, the running backs have a much steeper cut off from the top and second tiers. Due to the limited number of starting running backs it makes your choice of player for this position even more important. In this show Ashley relates to Jordy Nelson’s hiccup in his knee as she is one big medical hiccup in general, Courtney make the bold prediction that Josh Gordon will only play 6 games this year and Brandon wonders to herself if she is so excited about¬†Matt Forte only due to the recent news of Ryan Fitzpatrick resigning with the...

Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller Each week, Jake’s article will aim to highlight running backs that you should consider targeting on your league’s waiver wire. I’ve split these players up into three tiers from most desirable to most desperate. Additionally, I’ve included players at the bottom of this list that I would be comfortable cutting as I don’t see them contributing in a major way this season. Cream of the Crop Running Backs for Week 14 Waiver Wire These are running backs that I would add no matter what if they are available on your waiver wire. These players have a chance to be starters and weekly contributors to their NFL teams: James White (RB, NE) - 36% owned on Fleaflicker I wrote last week about how I liked Brandon Bolden or James White, but I just didn’t know which one. Well, while I do believe Bill Belichick will play the matchups and game situation will dictate who plays, I also see great opportunity here for White who set himself apart during Week 13. As far as game situation goes, I think it’s clear the Pats want to throw the ball and without their top two weapons in Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, White may be the top option in the passing game. Week 13 brought White 13 targets, 10 of which he caught for a total of 115 yards and a touchdown...

Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   “Just win baby.” Famous words from ex Oakland Raiders owner, Al Davis. Those words ring true for fantasy owners now more than ever. Week 13 is generally the final week of the regular season for most owners, and for many a win or loss this week will decide their positioning or whether they even make the playoffs. All that matters now is putting the best team possible on the field. “Just win baby.” Each week, Jake’s article will aim to highlight running backs that you should consider targeting on your league’s waiver wire.

Week 11 Running Back Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   Week 11 doesn’t seem very special, but there is some significance this season. This week is the final week of bye weeks with the Giants, Saints, Steelers, and Browns all taking the week to rest up for the season’s stretch run. It also marks the beginning of the homestretch for most regular season’s in fantasy in which playoff spots will be decided over the next three weeks. Up until this point in the season, this article has really had a long-range view in mind, that being to find a player that could really affect the outcome of your team this season. At this point though, I think that mentality starts to shift a bit. Team’s have shown their hand for the most part as far as which players they are going to give a chance to break out. At this point in the season fantasy is all about roster management and making sure that you are optimizing your weekly lineup. Gone are the days of taking fliers on a player and hoping they work out a couple weeks down the road. It’s time to win now and prepare for the playoffs and your waiver wire strategy needs to reflect that change in mentality. Each week, Jake’s article will aim to highlight running backs that you should consider targeting on your league’s waiver wire. I’ve split these players...
