  2. Backfield breakdown entering Week 9

    Eric Karabell

    It's far from rare that a completely new name is introduced to fantasy owners, even halfway through a season. In recent weeks, several running backs most hadn't heard of or were barely owned in ESPN leagues became real-life, and thus fantasy, factors...

  3. 2014 rankings update: New No. 1 at WR, TE

    Eric Karabell

    It's never too late for NFL players to change the minds of fantasy owners, which is why no top spot in our end-of-season positional and overall rankings is ever truly safe. Players get better, worse, or injured. So it is that the top name in two fant...

  4. Four Downs: Patriots offense rollin' now

    Eric Karabell

    The New England Patriots entered October a complete mess but finish it with the hottest fantasy offense this side of Denver. Coach Bill Belichick's bunch was once 2-2, and for fantasy purposes, quarterback Tom Brady had played himself out of relevanc...

  5. 2014 rankings update: Brady, Wilson rising

    Eric Karabell

    If you think it's tough when your fantasy team loses several players at one position in a given weekend, try being a real team suffering the same fate. I'm guessing it's a bit more problematic. Fantasy owners, however, can generally find intriguing f...

  6. Backfield breakdown entering Week 8

    Eric Karabell

    The running back hero in the first New England Patriots game after the Stevan Ridley season-ending knee injury was obviously Shane Vereen. He scored 23 fantasy points, which led all NFL running backs in Week 7. Vereen did most of his statistical ...

  7. Backfield breakdown entering Week 7

    Eric Karabell

    Not that there was a Curtis Martin or Thurman Thomas lurking in the AFC East entering the season, but now that Knowshon Moreno of the Miami Dolphins and Stevan Ridley of the New England Patriots have seen their seasons end because of serious knee inj...

  8. 2014 rankings update: Newton, Forte rise

    Eric Karabell

    Sometimes the top fantasy football teams are the ones that simply avoid the major injuries and get to use the players they hoped would produce. For many teams, however, shredded knees continue to play a significant role in adjusting and determining f...

  9. 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...

  10. Backfield breakdown entering Week 5

    Eric Karabell

    Tennessee Titans running back Bishop Sankey was the first at his position to be chosen in the NFL draft this summer and the first selected by fantasy owners in ESPN average live drafts, but he isn't owned in 100 percent of leagues and he isn't seeing...

  11. 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...

  12. Week 3 ranks reactions: Believe in Brady?

    Eric Karabell

    The Tom Brady fans/apologists swore that the New England Patriots quarterback was far from done after a disappointing 2013 season, that all he needed was better pass protection and his full corps of weapons at his disposal. I'm neither a fan nor apol...

  13. 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...

  15. Four Downs: Knowshon steals the show

    Eric Karabell

    Ask most fantasy football owners what they thought of running back Knowshon Moreno entering this season, and chances are they would spend more time discussing the team Moreno played for the past season and his unfortunate departure than breaking down...

  16. Separating wide receivers into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    The wide receiver position is seriously deep this season, which isn't really a surprise but more a continuation from past years. However, because running back is shallow in comparison, you might find those who make their living catching the football ...

  17. 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 ...
