  1. Ranks reax: Lions-Bears has potential

    Eric Karabell

    Wide receiver Calvin Johnson was a first-round pick in many ESPN average live drafts, and first at his position. Matthew Stafford was the fifth quarterback chosen, a fourth-rounder overall. Running back Reggie Bush went before Stafford, with Joique B...

  2. Four Downs: Fitzpatrick up to old tricks

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy leagues aren't won solely thanks to the statistical goodness of quarterbacks such as Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers or top wide receivers Calvin Johnson and Antonio Brown. On occasion, fellows like Billy Volek and Drew Bennett do the damage...

  3. Four Downs: Don't worry about Romo

    Eric Karabell

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn't generally viewed as the safest, most reliable fantasy option to start with, and that's when he's healthy. Of course, Romo is anything but healthy these days, dealing with several broken bones in his back tha...

  4. Four Downs: Surprise 100-yard rushers

    Eric Karabell

    It's hardly uncommon to see multiple 100-yard rushers in a given NFL week. Houston Texans star Arian Foster got things started positively Thursday night in that respect with 109 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and Dallas Cowboys star DeMarco Murray...

  5. Week 6 ranks reactions: Colts, Texans WRs

    Eric Karabell

    It's interesting how people tend to view the four featured wide receivers for this Thursday's hopefully competitive AFC South tilt between the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans. After all, we've seen nothing but blowouts so far in the first NFL g...

  6. 2014 ranks update: Megatron falls from top

    Eric Karabell

    It's safe to say that this season, the top of the rankings has seen more movement and variance from recent years, with injuries and surprising performances throwing fantasy owners for a loop. This week, the top wide receiver is the one moving down in...

  7. Four Downs: Injuries galore!

    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...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. 2013 WR review, early 2014 rankings

    Eric Karabell

    While the running back position caused quite the stir in fantasy football 2013 due to its lack of depth and underwhelming success, this was hardly the case at wide receiver, where consensus first-rounder Calvin Johnson had plenty of help aiding fanta...

  11. Four Downs: Huge day for pair of WRs

    Eric Karabell

    One of the two wide receivers to provide fantasy owners with a season-best 36 standard points Sunday is already acknowledged as the best in the game, a future Hall of Famer, and is pretty clearly no longer hobbled by a knee problem. The other wide re...

  12. 2013 ranks update: Reading and reacting

    Eric Karabell

    Six weeks down, and still many more before the fantasy playoff picture begins to take shape. Here in the end-of-season rankings update, we try to make sense of not only what has happened to this date but also what we think will happen the rest of the...

  13. Four Downs: Romo just fine fantasy-wise

    Eric Karabell

    Poor Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo just can't get a break. While the talk Monday will be about Romo's crucial late-game interception that led to the Denver Broncos escaping Big D -- actually, there was little D, as in defense, here -- with an ...

  14. Fantasy football Do Not Draft list

    Eric Karabell

    The mere concept of a "do not draft" list seems odd to me. Of course I would draft the likes of quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady, as well as awesome wide receivers Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant, and there's really nothing wrong wi...
