  1. 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...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Week 4 ranks reactions: Kaepernick's value

    Eric Karabell

    The first reaction to the Week 4 rankings is an obvious one: There are a lot of really good players missing. Oh, there have been absent options the past few weeks because of injuries and suspensions, but now come the bye weeks and yes, some of the be...

  6. 2014 ranks update: Buy-low players

    Eric Karabell

    We've now had three weeks to overanalyze our fantasy football options and that generally means more trades and add/drops than usual. Personally, I don't trade just to say I made a trade, but I've indeed looked to move players I view as sell-high opti...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 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...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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 ...

  16. Stock Watch: Running backs

    Eric Karabell

    Karabell's Stock Watch series: Quarterbacks | Running backs | Wide receivers More than a few free-agent running backs found new homes this offseason and figure to start with their new clubs, but is it enough to simply assume fantasy stock has rise...
