Poll Review: Who is your favorite late-round sleeper?

As we did last week, we are going to continue analyzing our poll results as part of our blog. Recently, we asked FG.com subscribers which of four different players (two rookies and two veterans) we’ve taken a liking to this preseason is their favorite sleeper:

As I was certain our subscribers have taken notice to Brown WR Greg Little just as much as we have this preseason (perhaps because we’ve been so demonstrative about him), it was no surprise to see him win this “election” comfortably: he ended up with a 24% margin on the other players, more than doubling the next highest vote-getter’s ratio. Little is a converted running back who has had some problems with his hands, but it’s clear he’s an excellent fit in this system for QB Colt McCoy. Little has an understanding for route running, and his big, tailback frame means he’s a strong receiver in the intermediate area and can overpower CBs, safeties, and even some LBs in a matchup. Remember, the Browns traded out of the slot where the Falcons ended up drafting WR Julio Jones, and we believe there is a good reason for that. Looking at Little from a skillset standpoint, he [...]

Poll Review: Which Player Would You Want as Your #2 RB?

For the rest of the preseason, we will be posting and review the results of our polls a couple of times each week. Today we look at our most recent poll, which looks at four possible players, who could are #2 fantasy RB candidates. Here are the results of that poll:

After what has been a strong training camp for him and impressive performance on national television last weekend, I can’t say I’m surprised to see Cowboy RB Felix Jones lead the way. While he’s been somewhat of a disappointed over the first three years of his career, there’s no doubt Jones has a lot of talent, as well as the size and physicality to be a lead back. Even though he does have the ability to take it to the house, it seems like some have been blinded by that idea and don’t think Jones can be much more than that or are disappointed when he doesn’t routinely bust off big runs. What doesn’t get discussed about enough is Jones’ role in the screen game, which is where he really excels as one of the best backs in the league when it comes to those situations. With none of the [...]

Equal Upside and the Quandary of the #1 Pick

I will be honest: the lockout jaded me. I was never particularly concerned about losing the 2011 season, or even a few games, but I did not go actively searching for mock drafts to whet my appetite for fantasy. What was the point? Everything would change anyway. Instead, I focused my attention on everything that’s gone up on this site over the last few weeks, namely the player profiles, and several things that have yet to come.

But – and I knew this would happen – draft season has descended upon us quickly. I like to draft as late as possible every year, but I’m sure I’ll be doing at least one draft within the next week. We don’t even have time to digest free agency before we have to assign values to the players that moved on. Hell, soon after I started throwing this post together, the Lions signed Jerome Harrison and Mike Bell to replace the injured Mikel Leshoure. No sooner did we bump up Jahvid Best’s value than we had to speculate on what the arrival of Harrison, in particular, means.

Of course, the mid rounds always have uncertainty. Even in a normal, non-lockout year, we’re either going to [...]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]

The biggest issue we face during the regular season is that there are only seven days in a week. We produce so much content in terms of early-week review of the big picture, and then we […]

  • 10 Training Camp Questions July 16, 2014
    More often than not, the answers to each upcoming season’s burning questions wind up being important keys to the success of a fantasy draft, so they’re worth exploring in depth. 2014 seems to be a little more straightforward than 2013, but there are still some critical situations that need to be placed under the microscope. Here’s my top-10. Is it time to pa […]
