There's no better source of fantasy advice than the players who've played the game. See what current and retired NFL players have to say about which QBs are on the rise this season:
Texans RB Arian Foster
Three down workhorse running backs have become a dying breed in today's NFL, where the dreaded RBBC is becoming commonplace. Since you've only got two starting backs in most leagues, every down RBs are at a premium. We've based our rankings on the premise that opportunity equals fantasy points and rewarded players with at least a shot at an every down role. Our rationale is you don't win fantasy championships by drafting mediocre part-time players but rather by gambling on greatness.
Check out our pre-season RB rankings and analysis, Sleepers & Busts and get advice directly from the players!
Ray Rice
Every year there are at least one or two RBs who fail to deliver on their first-round draft status. Sometimes it's unavoidable, like the player gets injured and is lost for an extended period of time. As long as you made contingency plans and picked up a capable replacement, you should be free of guilt. Successful fantasy players focus on minimizing their risk in the early rounds and gamble on upside as the draft progresses. We'll help you avoid possible early-round busts and identify some players with the potential to emerge as late-round or waiver wire sleepers.

There's no better source of fantasy advice than the players who've played the game. See what current and retired NFL players have to say about which RBs are on the rise this season:
Packers WR Randall Cobb
This year there are about 8-10 "Can't Miss" WRs who barring injury have delivered consistent stats over the last few years. If you want one of these low-risk/high-reward wideouts, you'll probably have to grab them in one of the first two rounds. Since the NFL has gravitated toward a more pass-oriented league, many fantasy owners have been selecting receivers earlier than in years past. Once this elite group is off the board the choices get more difficult. We'll help you navigate through this potential minefield to make sound decisions on draft day.

There's no better source of fantasy advice than the players who've played the game. See what current and retired NFL players have to say about which WRs are on the rise this season:
Seahawks DST
Every year it seems like there's a newbie who drafts a top defense way earlier than logic dictates, while more experienced players wait until the later rounds of the draft. Fantasy DSTs are just too dependent on flukey factors like INTs and defensive/special teams TDs to make them predictable from year-to-year. We track the trends and player movement to help you increase your chances of drafting a standout DST like the '85 Bears as opposed to a bust of epic proportions (like the '81 Baltimore Colts who yielded 33.3 points and 424.6 yards per game)
Check out our pre-season DST & kicker rankings and analysis, Sleepers & Busts and get advice directly from the players!
St. Louis Rams DST
Normally there's not much of a risk of a major draft bust when it comes to fantasy DSTs, since you hopefully aren't using an early round pick on them, but every year there are some overlooked gems and overhyped disappointments. The successful fantasy owner takes into account the movement of players and defensive coordinators from team-to-team along with trends in each unit's production. We help you sort through the rubble to find late-round gems and avoid overrated DSTs that are likely to disappoint.
Green Bay Packers K Mason Crosby
Every year there are fantasy owners who draft a "Can't Miss" K early only to be disappointed with his output. Often this is due to evaluating the position by looking in a rear-view mirror, failing to make a subjective analysis that takes into account the diverse factors that may influence a kicker's production. Although the accepted axiom is to pick one who plays for a high-powered offense, accuracy, field goal opportunities and sometimes leg strength also count. We provide the scoop on some late round gems and possible busts so you can avoid putting a cramp in your season.
