  1. Separating tight ends into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    As we finish up "tier week" in the KaraBlog and realize there will be no more quiet NFL weekends until February -- and this is a good thing -- it's worth pointing out that the tight end position is just a little bit different. In ESPN standard league...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. Separating quarterbacks into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    One of the reasons I tend to clump positions together in my rankings is because I use a tiered system to evaluate potential fantasy helpers. In other words, if several players offer similar value, they often become entangled in a tier and it's easier...

  5. Weekend wrap: Welker hurt, Bradford done

    Eric Karabell

    It's difficult to say for sure if Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker will be available for Week 1 of the regular season after he suffered yet another concussion during the team's game with the Houston Texans on Saturday. However, fantasy owners ...

  6. Team-by-team running back outlook

    Eric Karabell

    In a general sense, I find the popular fantasy football strategy of handcuffing running backs to be largely overrated. Sure, several key running backs will get injured this season, and someone's going to replace them on their NFL teams, in theory, bu...

  7. Answering your questions about auctions

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy football auctions can be a blast, but they can also overwhelm newcomers who aren't quite prepared for the quick pace or the constant adjustments needed during the process. Even now, after dozens of auctions to stock fantasy teams over the yea...

  8. Weekend wrap: Hakeem Nicks gains value

    Eric Karabell

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks doesn't seem like the most well-liked fantasy option for this season, as he is appearing outside the top 40 at his position in ESPN ADP, and it's easy to understand why. For one, Nicks really burned fanta...

  9. Stock watch: Wide receivers/tight ends

    Eric Karabell

    Only the Denver Broncos produced more yards from scrimmage than the surprising Philadelphia Eagles last season, but coach Chip Kelly's innovative offense lost a key piece in DeSean Jackson -- deliberately, by the way -- and expects to fill the void w...

  10. Stock watch: Running backs

    Eric Karabell

    Whether or not you're optimistic about Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, we can all agree he's no lock to return to his lofty place atop the running backs or even to play in all 16 games this season. I happen to be a fan, locking him in as a ...

  11. Stock watch: Quarterbacks

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners sure aren't waiting on their quarterbacks in ESPN live drafts, so in a sense, the stock is up for pretty much everyone at the position. Not only is Denver Broncos stud Peyton Manning being selected in the middle of the first round -- w...

  12. Preseason weekend wrap

    Eric Karabell

    Congratulations to all fantasy football owners who made it through the first weekend of preseason football without a drastic reconstruction of the rankings you spent weeks devising, adjusting your sleepers and busts, retooling your overall philosophy...

  13. Fantasy football 'Do Not Draft' list

    Eric Karabell

    I would bet New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is a blast at parties. I mean, I've heard stories and it doesn't seem like much of a stretch that this gregarious, attention-seeking fellow who once appeared on a reality dating show would be ...

  14. 2014 potential breakouts: wide receivers

    Eric Karabell

    It's true that last summer Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was on my list of potential breakout performers, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown and the Baltimore Ravens' Torrey Smith. (Well, two outta three isn't too bad, tho...

  15. 2014 potential breakouts: running backs

    Eric Karabell

    The top running back for the Denver Broncos last season was supposed to be hotshot rookie Montee Ball, but instead, forgotten veteran Knowshon Moreno stepped up in August, showed he could block effectively and produced by far the greatest season of h...

  16. 2014 potential breakouts: quarterbacks

    Eric Karabell

    I admit that much of the time when asked about potential breakout fantasy performers -- and this is a perfect week, as August approaches, to discuss it -- I keep it to running backs and wide receivers. After all, to me those are the key positions at ...
