We are thrilled to debut our “On The Fantasy Beat” series tonight, where we go straight to the source for all your most pressing fantasy questions. This year we’ll be pairing guest beats by division to get different perspectives on their biggest rivals as well, and we start in the NFC East and the Cowboys. With a completely overhauled offense, Dallas will bring a whole new fantasy look to the table. To try and make sense of it, and find the most valuable fantasy nuggets, The Wolf and Truth welcome the returning RJ Ochoa. RJ covers all things Dallas Cowboys for @BloggingTheBoys, hosts the excellent Cowboys Pod @OchoLive, and Co-hosts The Saturday Morning Hangover on ESPN San Antonio.

With Dez Bryant and Jason Witten gone, 272 targets (56%) and 2,645 air yards (68.8%) have been opened up. But before we dive into the new faces and how that might be filled, we first look at the let’s engine of this offense -- Ezekiel Elliott.  Will his role expand, and his underrated pass-catching flourish, with so much air volume up for grabs?

We then turn our attention to the pass-catching corps, discussing rookie WR Michael Gallup’s impressive play and the type of role he’s carving out, whether Tavon Austin is really a thing, and if any Target Hogs seem likely to emerge between these two and Allen Hurns. Plus, with lots of buzz surrounding Blake Jarwin, we dive into his potential Penny Stock TE upside, and then figure out if there’s any hope for Dak Prescott with such a mismatch receiving corps.

We then get RJ’s Prediction of how the NFC East will unfold, before firing him through our Fantasy No Huddle Offense, considering he’s a big time player himself. Don’t miss his RJ’s insider Cowboys takes and excellent fantasy lens in this excellent “On The Fantasy Beat” Debut.

The fantasy football season is hurtling towards us like Eddie Lacy towards a free buffet of crab rangoon, with Preseason Week 1 officially in the books. Anyone who says, “The Preseason doesn’t matter!” is a true sheep, as Fantasy Wolves consider all possible evidence.

From rapport building, to role development and unexpected usage, to overall team performances and glimpses at new schemes, plenty of important trends emerge that cannot be ignored. The Wolf and Truth read you all the headlines from our Preseason Week 1 Risers, Fallers, and Penny Stocks Recap, before diving in for a few more in depth  to preview the piece. And yes, we talk about Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin's pre-game confrontation (before discussing Benjamin’s sneaky Target Hog upside).

Plus, we tackle a jam packed stock watch featuring:

  • Alshon Jeffery’s injury and what it means for the other pass-catchers in Philadelphia
  • Jerick McKinnon’s injury and his stock now with Alfred Morris in San Francisco -- and what Morris himself could bring to the table
  • Developments in the ever-valuable Saints' backup RB story, which will make it even easier to select Mark Ingram at his steal price.
  • Bears Passing Game Developments -- who’s emerging as the top targets, and will Mitch Trubisky’s play allow it to matter?
  • John Brown’s Rising Penny Stock Value
  • A Saquon Barkley scare.

Plus, as has become tradition, Roto Joe is back for another round of Tier Jerkers. Here, the boys break down the 3rd Round(ish) RB scene--he and the Wolf rank McCaffrey, Collins, Henry, Ajayi, and Mixon for your drafting pleasure. Both Joe and Wolf differ vastly in their organization of this tier, so find out where and why certain players are higher or lower.

The pod is wrapped up with a couple of items from the mailbag, including what to do with your 2nd and 3rd Round Picks if drafting No.1 overall, as well as a QB question circling on Jared Goff and Deshaun Watson.

Bargains, Overprices, Penny Stocks, oh my! With our 2018 Preseason Kickoff Guide officially launched, The Wolf and Truth take a look inside the guide. (Unlike our last guest *cough* Field *cough*), we bring some bold predictions on the players who will be bring insane value at their currently discounted prices, who’ll bust at their current asking rates, and what guys go beyond 120 but could genuinely explode in 2018 -- for the record, we hit on Alvin Kamara and Marvin Jones as Penny Stocks last year.

In the process, we dig into Evan Engram and the enormous edge he can bring at his Round 5-6 price. We look at last year’s Texans offense, and why, even with some inevitable regression, this team will still be a juggernaut… and find you a way to get a very healthy piece of it in Round 8. We discuss why last year’s No.1 QB is actually heavily overrated, and how Christian McCaffrey going at 18th overall is a complete reach. Last, we visit Minnesota and New Orleans to unlock two names who could absolutely blow-up despite going beyond Pick 130.

Plus, with just a few days before Preseason Action, some major news is breaking that has major fantasy football implications. We cover:

-- Sony Michel’s knee injury, and what this means for Rex Burkhead (and why it’s not the immediate positive people might assume, despite a volume spike).
--Jarvis Landry’s role in Cleveland, and how he’s an emerging Target Hog with an insane ADP.
--What Corey Coleman’s new value could be in Buffalo, and how he still possesses real “Penny Stock Upside”
--Plus, some rapid fire blurbs covering the Cowboy’s offensive struggles, Cordarelle Patterson, Kenyan Drake, Marlon Mack, and Mike Gesicki.

Plus, with drafts fast approaching, we debut the “Tier Jerkers” with our guy Roto Joe. Any good ranking set are made as “Tiers” -- or similarly grouped fantasy values, which helps project positional and overall drop-offs, and make an overall Big Board much easier to make and navigate. Still, whether last week’s big-name guest likes it or not, when your on the clock, you’re not picking a group, you need a player. As such, this segment covers those brutal “Tiers” of players that cause legitimate tears to be jerked out of our bodies, and the sleepless nights that come with us screaming into our pillows.

This episode, we open the series with “The Round 2 WRs” (Keenan Allen, Davante Adams, Mike Evans, and AJ Green), breaking down the ceilings and floors of each prospect, before making a final ranking of each group. Who tops both Wolf and Roto Joe’s lists, but Truth wouldn’t touch? Why is Mike Evans at the bottom of one list and ranked second on another? Are we way too down on the Bengals offense?
This episode is completely loaded with invaluable insights for your draft, and the bold predictions you’ve come to love from the Fullback Dive (and may have missed last Episode). The lead-blocks are only getting better, and this is a true can’t miss.

Aug 8, 2018

We only welcome the boldest, most informed Wolves into our den, and we lead off our Training Camp with perhaps the most in-tune analyst of them all: ESPN’s Field Yates.

Yates opens with some breaking news around Doug Baldwin’s health and who could step up in his absence, plus Eric Decker and his potential fit with the Patriots. Then, we go into the den. First, the boys discuss some of their bolder agreements, including a shared loved for Derrius Guice, Jerick McKinnon, Marquise Goodwin, and Julian Edelman, as well as the uncommon ranking of Michael Thomas ahead of Julio Jones.

The claws then come out, as The Wolf calls out some mistakes he sees in Yates rankings. From being too low on Corey Davis, Rex Burkhead, and Tarik Cohen, to a little too high on Dak Prescott, Yates defends his rankings against some hot Wolf Takes.

Plus, the Truth and Wolf run down another jam-packed stock watch, covering:

Why Derrius Guice continues rising even further -- all the way up to The Wolf’s second round
The state of the Patriots pass-catching corps with Eric Decker now here
The state of the Seahawks pass-catch corps with Doug Baldwin currently gone (and where he ranks)
The latest on the Colts backfield, and who we would target, and fade, from this mess
Why Marquise Goodwin will be one of fantasy’s top bargains
How Jordy Nelson is looking early in camp
If we buy that Christian McCaffrey will see 25-30 touches (lol, no)

Between arguably our biggest guest ever, some crucial breaking news, and insane rankings insight, this episode is among our best yet. If you’re a fantasy football fan, you can’t miss it!

Aug 1, 2018

In anticipation for our 2018 Training Camp Kickoff Fantasy Guide, the RSJ assembled our brightest fantasy minds for our first full-staff Mock Draft of the season. Needless to say, the action was fast, furious, and, most importantly, very informative.

Roto Joe will be breaking down each and every pick in our guide, and he joins The Wolf and Truth to bring his hot takes to the pod. Find out who he and The Wolf consider the best and worst picks of each round, plus some key holistic drafting strategies, analysis on positional tiers and drop offs, and so much more. Simply put - you can't draft without hearing how ours unfolded and the lessons we learned from it.

Plus, with Training Camp now full in swing, the Stock Watch is all over the place. We look at news around Derrius Guice and Rashaad Penny, forcing us to reevaluate our original Rookie RB Rankings. We also discuss:

--Andrew Luck's early camp performance and what it means for this offense

--How Matt LaFleur's system is coming along and what pass-catchers are thriving in Tennessee

--The state of a wide-open Dolphins receiving corps, including a sneaky sleeper we feel could explode

--Why a more motivated Joe Flacco is crucial for fantasy football owners, even if you'll never draft the QB himself

Plus a rapid-fire segment covering key depth chart issues in Seattle, an emerging Penny Stock in Green Bay, some surprisingly important injury news for the New York Jets, and what Will Fuller's added bulk could mean for his durability in 2018.

Our pulverizing audio lead blocks have only gotten stronger, and we're peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners. Be sure to listen and and Subscribe to never miss a single lead block from the Fantasy Fullback Dive.

The most glorious time of the year has arrived: Training Camp, aka Fantasy Prep Season!

Though many fantasy values are set, plenty of Burning Questions need answers that'll dramatically alter The Fantasy Landscape. From Backfield Battles, to Target Totem Poles to every health and new fit question mark in between, we dive into The Wolf's Top Five Burning Questions, outlining: 

A) The Teams and their Burning Questions
B) Why Fantasy Owners need to know these answers
C) What we already know about the situation
C) Predictions on how the situations will unfold


In the process, we visit New England to dive into the crowded backfield and unclear wideout situation of this consistent juggernaut.

We then travel to Tennessee, where Matt LaFleur is insistent on "marrying the run / pass games" and has two talented backs to do just this -- but an unclear workload distribution remains. 

Our next stop's all over the map, where we breakdown Rookie RBs who remain behind less inspiring incumbents, but could easily ascend. From Royce Freeman's outlook in Denver, to Rashaad Penny's shot at a workhorse role, to Kerryon Johnson's place in a four-headed committee, and Ronald Jones' expected work in Tampa Bay, tons of Backfield Battles linger that need solving.

Afterwards, we do a roundtable on crucial QB Health Issues, diving into Deshaun Watson, Andrew Luck, and Carson Wentz. We break down when they're expected back, and the major impact all have on their offenses.

Last but not least is our apparently new favorite squad and the star of Hard Knocks -- the Cleveland Browns. This squad team is loaded with questions, which will make the HBO Special not only entertaining, but crucial to monitor. From QB and RB battles, to major WR question marks, there's tons of uncertainty with major implications here.

Plus, with Training Camps kicking off, news has been pouring in -- none bigger than Josh Gordon's absence from camp. We dig into the Fantasy Implications of this, as well as notes on:

--Leonard Fournette's weight loss
--Mitch Trubisky's early camp performance
--Chris Carson and the Seattle RB Depth Chart
--Jordan Howard and his hands
--LeSean McCoy's latest

Clearly, this Episode is absolutely brimming with information, so don't enter Training Camp without this enormous refresher and primer -- it's a true can't miss.

Jul 19, 2018

Every season huge fantasy values emerge because an entire offense takes a massive leap forward -- look no further than the 2017 Rams, who went from last in scoring all the way to first. Todd Gurley became a fantasy MVP in the process, while Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp were undrafted WRs who became quality season-long starters.

After tons of exciting play-caller movement, 2018 is littered with teams who could be this year’s Rams. Our two favorites?

The Bears (29th in scoring last season) and Browns (32nd).

Though both Matt Nagy and Todd Haley were covered in our Coaching Carousel Episode (FFBDPod 22), we go in far greater depth for both offenses here. Find out why Tyrod Taylor and Mitch Trubisky are two of the top late-round QBs in the game, why both Browns’ WRs make excellent fantasy values, how the Bears backfield will take the league by storm, and so much more as we dive into each and every relevant player on both teams.

Plus, with Training Camp on the horizon, the news has been fast and furious. Thus we check in on our Stock Watch, for updates on:

-- Le’Veon Bell’s potential holdout
-- LeSean McCoy’s disturbing situation
-- The Green Bay Backfield Mystery

Plus emerging penny stocks like

-- DJ Moore and the (meh) upside of being Carolina’s Top WR
-- A creature named Blaine Jarwin that might lead Dallas in receiving TDs


This episode is completely loaded… and with many drafts a mere month away, you can’t afford to miss any of it.

Jul 11, 2018

As explored last week, 12 new HC's or OC's calling plays in 2018.  As Todd Gurley's additional 881 yards and 13 TDs on just 22 more touches under Sean McVay ​​​​show, proper usage can be all the difference in fantasy. Most often, this boils down to the coaching scheme. 

Unfortunately, very few -- if any -- fantasy football sites analyze these coaching changes, at least not with the depth of analysis they deserve.

That is... until now.

The Roto Street Journal is incredibly proud to present the first-ever (FREE) Fantasy Football Coaching Carousel: The Most Comprehensive Guide to 2018's New Offenses.

While the guide features over 100 pages of Schematics, OTA Breakdowns, Past Player Production and Trends, and Future Predictions and Team Previews, we can only fit just a little taste into the FFBDPod; a tasty little appetizer before the main course guide. 

In Part 1, we broke down the four new play-calling HC's (Matt Nagy, Pat Shurmur, Jon Gruden and Frank Reich) plus new Cleveland OC Todd Haley.  For Part 2, we dive into the remaining new OCs: John DeFilippo, Norv Turner, Mike McCoy, and Matt LaFleur. 

To reign The Wolf in, The Truth gives him 2 total minutes per coach: 1 minute to break down their scheme and philosophies, and 1 minute to pick the one player who'll be most impacted in 2018. This segment features can't miss takes on all the new schemes, plus how Kyle Rudolph, Cam Newton, Larry Fitzgerald, and the Titans RBs (Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry) all stand to benefit the most on their respective teams. 

Also - with OTAs wrapped up, The Wolf and Truth sift through the five most important notes we haven't yet discussed. In the process, we break down Robert Turbin's four-game suspension (and what it means for Marlon Mack), how Blake Bortles is progressing in Nathaniel Hackett's offense in Year Two, how his former target Allen Hurns is primed for a No.1 WR role, how Tyrod Taylor's gaining leash as a starter which makes him an insane value, and notes that justify Deshaun Watson is our No.1 Ranked QB.

If you haven't paid any attention to the new hires, Part 1 and Part 2 are must listens, and our Coaching Carousel Guide is an actual Godsend. Make sure to tune in to one of our best mini-series yet, and let us know your thoughts by leaving a rating and a review!

With 12 new HC's or OC's calling plays in 2018, the Coaching Carousel has been spinning at record speed this offseason.

And, as Todd Gurley and the LA Rams made clear last season, knowing what each new coach brings to the table is absolutely essential (unless you don't care about 881 more yards and 13 more TDs on just 22 additional touches).

Unfortunately, very few -- if any -- fantasy football sites analyze these coaching changes, at least not with the depth of analysis they deserve.

That is... until now.

The Roto Street Journal is incredibly proud to present the first-ever (FREE) Fantasy Football Coaching Carousel: The Most Comprehensive Guide to 2018's New Offenses.

While the guide features over 100 pages of Schematics, OTA Breakdowns, Past Player Production and Trends, and Future Predictions and Team Previews, we can only fit just a little taste into the FFBDPod; a tasty little appetizer before the main course guide.

In Part 1, we begin by discussing the four new play-calling HC's (Matt Nagy, Pat Shurmur, Jon Gruden and Frank Reich) plus new Cleveland OC Todd Haley. To reign The Wolf in, The Truth gives him 2 total minutes per coach: 1 minute to break down their scheme and philosophies, and 1 minute to pick the one player who'll be most impacted in 2018. This segment features can't miss takes on all the new schemes, plus how Saquon Barkley, Tarik Cohen, Amari Cooper, Andrew Luck, and Josh Gordon all stand to benefit immensely.

With lots of news breaking on Rookie RBs and their potential to steal starting roles, The Wolf and Truth also bring up the Rookie Radar. What's the latest on Derrius Guice, Nick Chubb, and Royce Freeman, and what does it mean for you fantasy owners? (Plus, why does The Truth decide to unleash hell on whoever ESPN's Pat McManamon is?)

This Episode, and our Coaching Carousel Guide, are actual Godsends if you haven't paid any attention to the new hires. Make sure to tune in to one of our best shows ever, and let us know your thoughts below!

You look down at Pocket Aces, slide all your chips across the table, and smugly declare, "All-In."

Episode 21 is dedicated to all of 2018's Fantasy Football Players who fill us with the same kind of exhilaration and confidence. The guys we're willing to bet the house on without a second thought. The guys we absolutely need on our teams... and would feel disgusted to see rostered by our rivals.

Most often, these players are the screaming bargains who are going rounds later than they deserve. Sometimes, they're priced appropriately but are just drip in so much upside we need to have them.

In 2016, David Johnson was our No.1 "All-In" candidate, as we screamed from mountain tops that he needed to go 2nd overall after his explosive rookie finish. Last year, Tyreek Hill was the guy we couldn't stop raving about.

Now, we're giving you a whole team.

We separate the "All-In Team" by draft slot, breaking down Early Round, Middle Round, and Late Round guys we must have, covering multiple options at all positions.

Plus, we return with a "Stock Tip of the Day" with one of fantasy's most important strategies: waiting to draft your QB. Find out why the "Stock Market" approach to fantasy makes waiting on QB a necessity, not an option... and who to target in those later rounds.

Just to make sure you can confidently execute Waiting on a QB, we drop another Fantasy Stock Profile on our favorite QB Bargain of 2018... and possibly the biggest steal in all of fantasy this season.

Between a host of "All-In" Players, a necessary Fantasy Strategy, and a key Stock Profile, Episode 21 can't be missed. Keep following our lead block as we pave your way to Fantasy Football Titles in 2018.

Jun 11, 2018

Last week in Episode 19, we revealed The Fantasy Stock Formula. The Wolf uses this to grade every single one of our Top 100 players, and the system is truly the backbone to our rankings and analysis — making this a must-listen if you’re a FFBPod and/or Roto Street fan.

One Episode later, we dive in even deeper to The Wolf’s 2018
Player Grades by welcoming on three Roto Street Expert Mainstays: CJay, JimboSlice, and, making his FFBDPod debut from Indianapolis, Roto Joe. All three come at The Wolf hard, asking demanding questions ranging from:

—Why JuJu Smith is grading as a Top-12 WR
—Why Cam Meredith is one of the top “Penny Stocks” in 2018
—Is Kelvin Benjamin actually too low with massive volume coming his way?
—The Patriots WRs (pre-Edelman’s suspension, though still highly relevant)
—Derrick Henry and how he compares to a host of other upside RB2s 
—Why isn’t Antonio Brown perfect?
— Is Mahomes way too high… and Tom Brady way too low?
—What makes Leonard Fournette riskier than you’d imagine

Just to name a handful. This Episode is loaded with a variety of fire takes all over the fantasy map, while including an inside look at our system. Simply put, we’ve gone back-to-back on the can’t miss audio.

Check out our show notes from Episode 20 here.

Jun 7, 2018

Any successful business or brand has at least one way of separating from the pack. A different approach or style that puts them above everyone else.


At Roto Street Journal, we believe our Fantasy Stock Formula is one our greatest edges over the industry -- there's simply no better way to evaluate future fantasy fortunes.

In Episode 19, we reveal our secret sauce.


Simple yet incredibly in-depth, the Fantasy Stock Formula grades out every player with the 6 Crucial Fantasy Football Value Indicators in mind:


--Individual Talent

--Usage

--Surrounding Talent

--Coaching Scheme

--Risk

--Upside


To open, The Wolf and Truth dive into how we evaluate and grade each category, and breakdown why each variable is essential to fantasy value. 

Moreover, we break down the logic behind our new "Category Weights," and why some Indicators (re: Talent and Usage) are worth more than others.

Soon after, things get heated.

While The Truth may agree with the formula, he and The Wolf are way off in some grading decisions. Find out why Tyreek Hill, Odell Beckham, Kirk Cousins, Big Ben, Leonard Fournette and Mr. Glass himself Jordan Reed are all major points of contention.

 No other episode brings you truly behind the scenes quite and reveals are "backbone" quite like this, making Episode 19 a monumental must-listen.

As painful as it has been, The Wolf has held out from any Fantasy Football Mock Drafts or Draft Wizards...until now. He wanted his first Mock to be a live, unbiased breakdown of his true thoughts, and we've captured this to perfection.

In this 12-team, half PPR draft, The Wolf is assigned the 4th spot. Immediately, the debates begin with David Johnson vs. Antonio Brown, and they don't let up from here. Find out if The Wolf followed his coined strategy of "Building an RB Stable," what picks he thinks will be the Steals of 2018 drafts, and so much more. Plus, we breakdown breaking news on Dalvin Cook, Darren Sproles, and David Njoku.


This live mock draft yielded so many market insights, it truly can't be missed!

Part 4

In a fire finale episode to our 2018 NFL Draft Fantasy Football Four Pack, we package together all the incredible insight and takes from our interviews with The Fantasy Footballers’ Mike “The Hitman” Wright (Ep. 15) and Pro Football Focus’ Scott Barrett (Ep. 160.  The Wolf digs into the most important lessons learned and ranking reconsiderations prompted by his tangos with two of the industry's best. Moreover, some takes already need refreshing (fantasy football is truly a never-sleeping stock market!), particularly after CJ Anderson signed with Carolina, and Mark Ingram was hit a four-game suspension. We cover all the breaking news and the surrounding implications in our debuting Fantasy Stock Watch segment.


Meanwhile, we revisit all the Veteran Riser and Faller takes and cover all the necessary names left to discuss. Many veterans benefited immensely, cementing their Usage after their teams bypassed rookie talent injections... while others saw their value plummet as their depth chart throne grew far shakier, if not usurped altogether. You can't miss all these crucial implications and takes, as well as Saquon Barkley's Stock Profile to highlight why he belongs in the Top Five overall.

With endless, invaluable NFL Draft takes from two of the industry's brightest and boldest minds, as well as information-packed standalone bookends, this first-ever "Fantasy Four Pack" has been truly can't miss fantasy listening. Tune in and Sound Off now!

Part 3:

In Part Three of our 2018 NFL Draft Fantasy Football Four Pack Mini-Series, The Wolf and Truth ecstatically invite Pro Football Focus Scott Barrett on as our second draft-dissecting Fantasy Wolf.  The King of "Metrics that Matter" and "#DankStats," Barrett is constantly uncovering game-changing, never-before-seen stats and trends to better illuminate the many factors that go into Fantasy Football success… and he brings all the Advanced Analytics to the FFBDPod in a can’t miss Episode 16.

We run Barrett through the same grueling script as Wright, uncovering some similar opinions, but far more variety in his takes. Why is Barrett down on this class as a whole? On the flip side, which 2 backs is he all-in on? Why is Derrius Guice completely overrated in Barrett’s mind while Nyheim Hines could be a steal? Barrett answers all of these and far more, bringing the unique analytics and stats only he and PFF can.   

Just like Wright, Barrett also digs into the veteran pool, bringing some fantastic grading and breakdowns for who won and lost from a fantasy perspective. We dive deep into Alex Collins, Jay Ajayi, JuJu Smith Schuster, and many more in a must-listen breakdown of the NFL Draft.

Episode 15

In Part Two of our 2018 NFL Draft Fantasy Football Four Pack Mini-Series, The Wolf and Truth are thrilled to debut our 2018 Fantasy Wolves series with a fire interview with Mike “The Hitman” Wright of The Fantasy Footballers. As a co-founder of Fantasy Football's biggest, most award-winning podcast, Mike Wright has earned the title "The Fantasy Hitman" for his bold, hard-hitting takes that slay the competition. Thus, he was a natural choice for the first wolf to enter our den and slay the NFL Draft coverage.

We run The Hitman through some grueling interview questions to dig up this opinions and analysis on the 2018 NFL Draft's biggest storylines, primarily centered around this loaded 2018 Rookie RB Class.

We start at the top with Saquon Barkley, and hit upon every other relevant rookie from there. Who’s the next best pick in fantasy after Barkley? Is Derrius Guice set to be as beastly in the pros as he was in college? Is Sony Michel set to dominate in the explosive Patriots Offense? Which Rookie RBs should be avoided, and who’ll be the under-the-radar rookie pick who could change seasons?

Beyond the rookies, Wright also digs his teeth into the many veteran implications. Who does The Hitman consider the biggest risers and fallers following the draft, and why? Which bust is The Wolf definitely doubling-down on, and what fifth round WR is going to win people leagues?

Find out all this and so much more in a truly can’t miss interview.
