  1. Separating tight ends into tiers

    Eric Karabell

  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: 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...

    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...

  9. 2013 TE review, early 2014 rankings

    Eric Karabell

    Though owning New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski during the 2013 season tested many a frustrated fantasy owner, this was generally a productive position that was tough to complain about. Tight end scoring has never been higher, with 3,768 stand...

  10. 2013 WR review, early 2014 rankings

    Eric Karabell

    While the running back position caused quite the stir in fantasy football 2013 due to its lack of depth and underwhelming success, this was hardly the case at wide receiver, where consensus first-rounder Calvin Johnson had plenty of help aiding fanta...

  11. 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...

  12. Four Downs: No rust for Rodgers, Cobb

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps it's true that absence does make the heart grow fonder, but when it comes to fantasy football owners who longingly missed Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and talented wide receiver Randall Cobb for months, the history they made Su...

  13. Sneaky pickups entering Week 16

    Eric Karabell

    Wise keeper league fantasy owners should never stop thinking about the future, whether their teams are set for this season's playoffs or not. We're up to Week 16 and for the many keeper league owners whose seasons have ended -- always prematurely, of...

  14. Four Downs: How 'bout those rookies!

    Eric Karabell

    Much of the focus in the Dallas Cowboys' staggering loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon will be on the beleaguered home team, from its turnover-prone quarterback to the odd play-calling to the defense that continues to embarrass itself....

  15. Four Downs: Winter weather? No problem

    Eric Karabell

    The forecast for Philadelphia for Sunday afternoon called for perhaps an inch of snow and difficult conditions beginning around halftime. Of course, an hour before game time, it was apparent that forecast was, as Bob Uecker might say, juuuuuust a bit...

  16. Four Downs: C.J. Spiller shows his upside

    Eric Karabell

    This was supposed to be the season awesome Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller emerged as a legitimate fantasy superstar, a worthy top-10 choice on draft day. After all, Spiller boasts ridiculous quickness, breakaway speed and elusiveness, and he...
