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.

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.

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.
