  1. 2014 rankings update: Injuries shuffle ranks

    Eric Karabell

    There was limited movement in the end-of-season rankings after Week 1, because little had changed. It was, after all, only one game. There weren't many major performances or injuries, but of course that was anything but the case in Week 2. As a resul...

  2. Four Downs: Injuries dominate Week 2

    Eric Karabell

    The unfortunate NFL stories leading up to Sunday's game were basically about anything but the action on the field -- Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Greg Hardy -- so it wasn't surprising the theme of Sunday afternoon was again barely about the players reg...

  3. Week 2 flex rankings

    Eric Karabell

    It's amazing how one week of games can alter so many opinions. Your second-rounder from August might not be among your top options for a flex position this week because of injury or a tough Week 1. Perhaps he's not even on your roster anymore! But fo...

  4. NFC East teams affect Week 2 rankings

    Eric Karabell

    How bad is most of the NFC East and what does it mean for fantasy football owners? Well, it certainly wasn't pretty for the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants in Week 1, as they looked just terrible on both sides of the ball in l...

  5. 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...

  6. 2014 ranks update: Don't overreact

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to the first installment of the 2014 end-of-season rankings! This has been one of our Tuesday staples in this space the past few seasons as these looking-ahead rankings tend to generate much discussion, which is definitely a good thing. Agree...

  7. 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...

  8. Week 1 flex rankings

    Eric Karabell

    Let's start flexing! Welcome to the 2014 version of the flex rankings, and yes, they look pretty much like the ones from past seasons. As always, we combine the top running backs, wide receivers and tight ends into one tidy package, with numerous dec...

  10. 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...

  11. 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 ...

  12. 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 ...

  13. 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...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...
