  2. Separating running backs into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    Running backs are no longer the lifeblood for fantasy football owners, but that doesn't mean you should be ignoring them, either. My first round is made up entirely of running backs, but there are certainly different levels of excitement in securing ...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 2013 ranks update: Plenty of new names

    Eric Karabell

    It was a messy Sunday in the NFL this past weekend, with myriad serious injuries affecting the fantasy football landscape. So as you ponder this week's rest-of-season rankings, you'll see several new names seeing opportunity because of the value of o...

  8. Week 7 ranks reaction: Packers offense

    Eric Karabell

    It's hard to remember the last time fantasy owners liked a Green Bay Packers running back more than any of their wide receivers, but such is the case in my rankings for Week 7. The Packers are a bit beaten up on the outside, with Randall Cobb out unt...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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 ...

  13. 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 ...

    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...

  15. 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...

  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...

  17. 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...
