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 10 By the Numbers

13th of November, 2012

There have been two incredibly gutsy performances that stick out in my mind this year. No matter who you are, what team you root for, or how you feel about these particular players – you just can’t help but smile.

5 Fantasy Football Facts You Should Know for Your 2012 Draft

If you’ve read my blog over this inaugural month, I hope you’ve noticed that I like looking at historical numbers. My book, The Late Round Quarterback, deciphers past numbers in order to provide a well-developed fantasy football strategy that can help both pre- and post-draft. It’s not all that fair to look at the previous […]
