Here is how I feel after week 3: All work and no play makes Phil a dull boy. All work and no play makes Phil a dull boy. All work and no play makes Phil a dull boy. All work and no play makes Phil a dull boy. All work and no play makes Phil […]

The Late Round Quarterback staff put together their quarterback rankings for the 2013 season.

Historic Quarterback Play and Fantasy Eliteness

31st of May, 2013

Everyone wanted Aaron Rodgers after his incredible 2011 season. In fact, the Aaron Rodgers demand was so high that he compiled the single greatest ADP of any quarterback in the history of fantasy football. I didn’t get it. I mean, I understood the concept of value and the notion that obtaining one of those high-scoring, […]

The Most Inconsistent Usable Players of 2012

29th of May, 2013

Consistency is defined as “The achievement of a level of performance that does not vary greatly in quality over time.” Inconsistency, quite obviously, means the opposite. NFL players who never touch the ball throughout the season could be considered, given the definition, consistent. They’re just consistently bad, playing at a low level no matter the […]

Elite Quarterbacks: Comparing Their Numbers from 2011 to 2012

6th of January, 2013

Back when we drafted our fantasy football teams in August, it was common to see at least five quarterbacks leave the board by the end of Round 2. Fantasy experts told you to do it. The game of football, with teams consistently moving to a pass-first, spread offense, told you to do it. And heck, […]

Week 14 By the Numbers

12th of December, 2012

Fantasy experts make pre-season bold predictions based off of high potential and opportunity. It’s why so many liked Matt Ryan coming into 2012, or unproven running backs Doug Martin and Trent Richardson. And it’s the reason fake footballers selected new Chiefs’ running back Peyton Hillis as early as Round 5. (Eek.) The first game of […]

Week 13 By the Numbers

4th of December, 2012

I find it interesting when folks on Twitter and the ones who frequent this website are surprised that I point out every mistake in drafting a quarterback early. “Ok, ok,” says Twitter follower Thomas. “We get it. Draft your quarterbacks late.” The problem, Thomas, is that “we” is only a selection of people. There are […]

Reaction Monday: Who Needs an Elite Quarterback?

3rd of December, 2012

When you draft your fantasy team in mid-August, there’s little reason for you to stare down and analyze the Week 13 schedule. After all, who would’ve thought the Dolphins would be decent, the Rams would be competitive against the 49ers and Charlie Batch would be starting at quarterback for the Steelers? No, you’re not drafting […]

Reaction Monday: I Just Fumbled This Blog Entry

27th of November, 2012

Some people think the end of the world is next month. For Steeler fans, including myself, the end of the world already happened. We’re just now in some purgatory-like place. Turning the ball over eight times to the Cleveland Browns is nothing short of embarrassing. Sure, the Browns defense has been playing much better over […]
