  2. 2013 RB review, early 2014 rankings

    Eric Karabell

    Let's face the facts: The 2013 fantasy football season was mostly a mess for running backs. Oh sure, a few runners who were relied upon as first-round draft picks performed to the level that was expected of them, but just as many top-10 choices flame...

  3. Week 17 flex ranks: 'Silly' week is here

    Eric Karabell

    And so it ends, another exciting, fruitful and at times ridiculous and unpredictable NFL season. We've been with you each and every week with our staff rankings and here with the flex version, in which we combine the best of the running backs, wide r...

  4. Week 17 ranks reax: Top stars still playing

    Eric Karabell

    Neither of the No. 1 spots for the postseason has been clinched entering Week 17, which is actually a very good thing for fantasy football owners. How many times in the past has the great Peyton Manning been our top option for 16 weeks, only to leave...

  5. 2013 ranks update: Look ahead, look back

    Eric Karabell

    Well, it's been a fun ride with the end-of-season rankings roller coaster, but it ends here heading into Week 15. After all, trading is over, the playoffs are underway in most leagues and many are already looking ahead to the 2014 rankings! We'll be ...

  6. Sneaky pickups entering Week 14

    Eric Karabell

    Several of the running back situations in the AFC East certainly lack clarity at this point. For example, we don't know if unforgiving New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick will permit his best running back (Stevan Ridley) to dress for Sunday's g...

  7. Week 14 flex ranks: Trust your studs!

    Eric Karabell

    It's playoff time in many leagues, which obviously magnifies the lineup decisions of owners in those leagues. OK, so Eric Decker scored 41 fantasy points in Week 13. If he does that again in Week 14 and he's on your bench, and you lose your playoff m...

  8. 2013 ranks update: We have a new No. 1

    Eric Karabell

    Those of you who use the end-of-season rankings to help make trades are running out of time to do your wheelin' and dealin', at least in ESPN standard leagues; the trade deadline in those leagues is Wednesday at noon ET. So if you're pondering a deal...

  9. 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,...

  10. 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...

  11. 2013 rankings update: Time to reassess

    Eric Karabell

    We've already seen trading in the NFL this season (Trent Richardson), and other potentially relevant players switching or finding teams (Willis McGahee, Josh Freeman), so it's yet another reason to see how the real-life changes affect our end-of-seas...

  12. 2013 ranks update: Oldies but goodies

    Eric Karabell

    One month of games is complete, which of course still leaves a lot more of the fantasy season. But at least now we have a pretty good idea who is good and who is a Jacksonville Jaguar. The exercise remains the same in this space each Tuesday, as we r...

  13. 2013 ranks update: RB depth lacking

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to the latest installment of the rest-of-season rankings, as we all pretend we could draft today, three weeks into the season. There's a twist coming up this week: The ever-annoying bye weeks begin. Hey, you knew about them on draft day, but ...

  14. 2013 ranks update: QBs even deeper

    Eric Karabell

    Even after one fantasy football week, many owners were already looking to make changes, mainly trading off their underachieving players. In some cases, they simply cut them for surprise Week 1 performers. But now we enter Week 3, and things get even ...

  15. 2013 ranks update: Many RB, WR changes

    Eric Karabell

    One week down, 16 to go! Hope you enjoyed the first NFL weekend as much as I did, but Tuesdays in this space are a day to look ahead, not only for this coming week, but way down the line. We're back again this year with our Tuesday end-of-season rank...

  16. Separating running backs into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    One of the best ways to achieve a successful draft is to rank players in a tiered system, thus making it easier to know when you need to consider drafting at a certain position. For example, you might consider three or four running backs to be of sim...
