How Zero RB Killed Zero RB

A funny thing happened to Zero RB during its meteoric rise as a approach to winning fantasy football drafts… it has become incredibly difficult to execute.

While Zero RB is ineffective in draftmaster formats, in traditional league formats, Zero RB remains on the table

Jeremy Hill: Big Enough to Fail

Just because Jeremy Hill had an incredible rookie year, does not mean he’s better than Giovani Bernard.

Giovani Bernard’s prospect and professional profiles are superior to Jeremy Hill across the board. For this reason, Jeremy Hill’s second round ADP is too expensive. Most fantasy gamers would be better off selecting a stud WR in that slot.

Chris Matthews: Size Always Matters

In 2014 Russell Wilson threw the ball 452 times, 45 more attempts than the previous season. If Wilson continues along this trajectory, 500 passing attempts are within the range of possible outcomes in 2015.

Chris Matthews’ Super Bowl performance suggests that he would be more productive than Jermaine Kearse this season. When Matthews finds his way into the starting lineup, there will be enough targets available to make Chris Matthews an upside flex play on a weekly basis, even in an offense that is known for running-first.

Leonard Hankerson: Fantasy Football’s Cheapest Upside Play

However, in 2015, the stars may be aligning for him as he has a real opportunity to be the Falcons’ WR3.

If Hankerson can win this job and stay healthy, by this time next year we’ll all be setting our watches to HankTime.

5 End-Of-Draft Sleeper Handcuffs (with league-winning potential)

As fantasy gamers gravitate toward draftmaster formats that disallow in-season moves, handcuffing studs has come back en vogue.

We review five true sleeper handcuffs available at the end of fantasy drafts who are in-line to ascend, and yet most fantasy gamers don’t know their names.

Looking for LeGarrette Blount: An Evaluation Key for Early-Down RBs

LeGarrette Blount has demonstrated how effective a two-down pounder can be. After most of the fantasy community had written him off, Blount delivered multiple strong late-season performances against playoff-quality competition.

Whether you are experimenting with Zero RB, or have simply found yourself needing RB help later in your draft, you would be wise to target some productive two-down RBs. They may not have the sex appeal of an every-downer, but these backs could help you win your league.

Marques Colston is a Discount Kelvin Benjamin

Marques Colston may be much older, but he and Kelvin Benjamin should post similar fantasy numbers in 2015.
