    Eric Karabell

    Stop if you've heard this one before: Injuries already have played a significant role in the Week 5 fantasy results, as several high-profile players left their games prematurely and could end up missing significant playing time. Here are my initial t...

  2. Week 5 ranks reactions: Browns RBs

    Eric Karabell

    While much of the talk surrounding the Cleveland Browns in early September centered on a quarterback who has yet to complete a pass and a wide receiver who remains two months away from catching one, there is fantasy relevant news for this squad. Run...

  3. 2014 ranks update: Brady, Brees tumble

    Eric Karabell

    With one month down and three more to go we have ample evidence at a few positions that changes are warranted at the very top. It doesn't mean that the players leaving the top spots at their respective positions are done helping us, but if they're no...

  4. Previewing 2015 positional eligibility

    Eric Karabell

    As we wind down another fantasy baseball regular season and look ahead to 2015, it seems worthwhile to give an update on eligibility situations that owners might not be aware of. Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz played first base in Pitts...

  5. Backfield breakdown entering Week 2

    Eric Karabell

    While injuries could potentially leave a few starting running backs unable to play in Week 2 (Ben Tate, Doug Martin), clearly one of the situations to watch will be Thursday night, when the Baltimore Ravens meet the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. I predi...

  6. Versatile Ben Zobrist could be DL-bound

    Eric Karabell

    I've long been a fan and defender of Tampa Bay Rays switch-hitter Ben Zobrist, enjoying his versatility and 20-homer, 20-steal potential. However, being objective, I was also planning to write a blog entry wondering whether he's become a bit overrate...

  7. 2013 ranks: The RB craziness continues

    Eric Karabell

    With 10 weeks of the fantasy season now complete, the 2013 rankings look a whole lot different than they did back in August. For instance, check out the running back position. Half the guys who were originally top-10 options are either no longer suit...

  8. 2013 ranks update: Assessing the Bengals

    Eric Karabell

    We're nearly halfway through the NFL's regular season, and it's well past the time to forget about the round you drafted this running back and what you gave up via trade for that quarterback. In too many cases, slumps have turned into more than that,...

  9. Sneaky pickups entering Week 8

    Eric Karabell

    It's tough to remember now, but once upon a time, current New Orleans Saints backup tight end Benjamin Watson was a real-life first-round pick by the New England Patriots. He generally underachieved statistically with Tom Brady up until the great 201...

  10. Week 1 ranks reaction: Foster No. 15?!

    Eric Karabell

    Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been one of fantasy's kings for three seasons, a touchdown machine who has averaged more than 1,900 yards from scrimmage in that time. He's also the No. 2 player and running back in the ESPN Fantasy rankin...

  11. Top 10 running back handcuff options

    Eric Karabell

    In most of the obvious situations in which a fantasy owner would handcuff a backup running back, the starter is a proven veteran coming off a successful 2012 season. There's Arian Foster and Ben Tate with the run-heavy Houston Texans, and Ray Rice an...

  12. Officially concerned about Arian Foster

    Eric Karabell

    It was an exciting second preseason weekend in the NFL, with performances large and small, important injuries and still, my biggest takeaway -- and I suspect I'm hardly alone -- is the fact Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak finally acknowledged the Ar...

  13. Is Arian Foster the slam-dunk No. 2 pick?

    Eric Karabell

    We can all agree that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the top pick in fantasy football drafts this season. What we apparently cannot agree on for sure is who is second. A month or so ago, I was confidently on board with Houston Texa...

  14. All-Star hitter interviews: Kipnis, Zobrist

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals are one of baseball's most successful organizations, in part because they think progressively and try new things. Coaxing more defensive versatility from their hitters is one of the more obvious themes, and certainly the fact ...

  15. What to expect from Grant Green

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Sunday, the Oakland Athletics hadn't received any home runs from their second base position, fueling speculation that a trade for someone like Philadelphia Phillies option Chase Utley was a possibility. While Eric Sogard finally hit one out ...

  16. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...
