Most Probable Landing Spots for NFL Free Agents: Alshon Jeffery & Latavius Murray

Enter Eddie Lacy, who is coming off two very forgettable and injury-marred seasons in Green Bay. He would be a perfect fit alongside James White and Dion Lewis in the Patriots backfield, assuming Blount’s role. The bromance between Belichick and Nick Saban has also given Belichick an affinity toward former Alabama stars.

The 49ers need to solve their quarterback problem, no small feat, but the smartest thing Shanahan can do would be to provide a young signal caller a 6-4 mistake-erasing athletic marvel offering a 128.3 (99th-percentile) Height-adjusted Speed Score (HaSS) at wide receiver.

Ideal Landing Spots for Free Agent Wide Receivers: Alshon Jeffery, Terrelle Pryor & Kenny Britt

Now that the NFL season has officially come to a close, player movement is currently the hot topic in the fantasy community. There are several fantasy relevant wide receivers primed to hit the open market this spring, and we have determined the landing spot that would best optimize their fantasy value.

Similar to Randy Moss’ arrival in New England a decade prior, Terrelle Pryor signing with the Patriots could conceivably disrupt the competitive balance of the NFL.

Best Fantasy Football Rebound Candidates for 2017: Allen Robinson, Ameer Abdullah, and More

While many will argue Detroit needs to draft a running back, who could they find with a better profile than Abdullah? He has a 98th percentile Burst Score, SPARQ-x Score, and Agility Score. Abdullah has great quickness, is powerful, and is skilled at catching the ball out of the backfield.

No player will better illustrate the short-term memory of fantasy football owners better than our beloved “Vodka Centaur,” tight end Rob Gronkowski.

5 Zero RB Backs to Target in Fantasy Drafts

There are enough diamonds in the rough that you can be successful implementing Zero RB, but you need to be patient and have a plan heading into the draft. There are five running backs who are very appealing at their current draft positions.

Derrick Henry’s Best Comparable Player is the testosterone-inflated, rage-induced Zangief from Street Fighter. While winning the Heisman at Alabama, Henry looked like the star of your local middle school team who hit puberty four years too early.

Is Duke Johnson the NFL’s Next Renaissance Running Back?

A body mass index (BMI) of 30.6 (58th-percentile), College Dominator Rating of 33.0-percent (71st-percentile) at a major conference program, and a College Target Share in the 93rd-percentile demonstrate that Duke possesses both the stature and historical production indicators to become workhorse running back in the NFL.

Not only has Duke put up back to back seasons with over 500 rec yards, but he also posted a very healthy 4.9 YPC in 2016. Hue Jackson has said many times that he believes Duke Johnson can be an every down back in the NFL. I recommend buying low now in all dynasty formats before Crowell signs with another team.

Top Red Zone Wide Receivers of 2016 for Fantasy Football: Donte Moncrief & Dez Bryant

It’s no secret that points matter in fantasy football just as much as they do in real football. We highlight the top-10 receivers who converted targets to touchdowns in 2016 with the hopes of identifying who could be the most red zone efficient receivers heading into the 2017 season.

Michael Thomas’ high-end athletic profile demonstrated by a 114.5 SPARQ-x Score (75th-percentile), 10.14 Catch Radius (73rd-percentile) and 99.9 Height-adjusted Speed Score (HaSS) (67th-percentile) helped to propel him to a +28.9 Production Premium (No. 4), was the highest among all rookie receivers in 2016.

5 Fantasy Football Bounce Back Candidates including: Allen Robinson & DeAndre Hopkins

Cam Newton’s anemic red zone and deep ball completion percentage both ranked outside the top-25 in 2016. A return to his dominance in 2015 is unlikely, but a moderate bounce back seems assured in 2017.

Allen Robinson ranked No. 9 among NFL wide receivers with 19 red zone targets last season. With his big body and physical play, Robinson’s touchdowns will increase back toward the mean in 2017.

Is Donte Moncrief the next Jordy Nelson in fantasy football?

Moncrief’s red zone proficiency paired with prolific quarterback play is reminiscent of Jordy Nelson. Natural talent development and situational forces project to lift the 23-year old Moncrief to new heights, making him an one of the best value wide receivers in fantasy drafts next season.

Donte Moncrief and Jordy Nelson share two important features of a dominant fantasy WR: an excellent quarterback and a below-average defense.

Shades of Randy Moss: Brandon Marshall to New England would drive Patriots haters into hysteria

If the Jets release Brandon Marshall this offseason, the New England Patriots should sign Marshall based on his advanced stats and metrics profile.

Brandon Marshall and Randy Moss are similar in size and end zone prowess. Though Marshall has been better than Moss at converting red zone targets into touchdowns. Throughout his career, Marshall has turned 27-percent of his red zone targets into touchdowns, while Moss converted 24-percent of his career red zone targets into touchdowns.

Is Logan Thomas the Terrelle Pryor of Tight Ends?

Just as the NFL will ‘copycat’ successful trends, we as fantasy players need to open our minds to the possibility of another freak athlete switching positions in 2017.

Terrelle Pryor and Logan Thomas also boast upper percentile athleticism for their respective positions. After all, the one target that he had as a tight end with Virginia Tech came from none other than Tyrod Taylor for a touchdown.
