Remember Chester Taylor last Draft Day

At 1pm eastern on Saturday, April 28th 2007, Viking RB Chester Taylor was a strong fantasy option and a solid keeper league back. By 3pm that day, he wasn’t very attractive for 2007 and even less attractive for the long-term, and you know why.

We always focus on the players who are selected in the NFL draft, but as important are the players already on NFL rosters; sometimes incumbent starters are greatly affected by their team’s additions. Fantasy fortunes may not be lost this weekend, but the values of several players who are seemingly attractive right now will definitely take a hit, so here’s a look at some guys who might see their stock drop this weekend.

DeAngelo Williams – In some ways, his fantasy value this year is hanging in the balance this weekend. The team added LaBrandon Toefield, but he’s not a big threat.

The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
