  1. Week 17 ranks reax: Top stars still playing

    Eric Karabell

    Neither of the No. 1 spots for the postseason has been clinched entering Week 17, which is actually a very good thing for fantasy football owners. How many times in the past has the great Peyton Manning been our top option for 16 weeks, only to leave...

  2. Week 16 ranks reax: Why matchups matter

    Eric Karabell

    While I fully admit it would be tough for me to rely on the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick or Kirk Cousins in a fantasy championship round -- regardless of attractive matchup -- I'm also not the type of owner who blindly subscribes to the "guy that got me...

  3. Week 15 ranks reaction: Redskins still fine

    Eric Karabell

    Some will view the somewhat expected announcement of Washington's starting quarterback change as more indication of how dysfunctional things have become, the start of mass changes. More Sha-hanigans from coach Mike Shanahan, if you will. Franchise qu...

  4. Week 14 ranks reaction: Trust Alex Smith?

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith ranks 11th overall in standard fantasy scoring this season, ninth among quarterbacks, and neither mark should be too surprising. After all, he finished the 2011 season just outside the top 10 in quarterback ...

  5. Week 13 ranks reaction: Go Pack Go!?

    Eric Karabell

    The last time Matt Flynn started a game for the Green Bay Packers, it went fairly well. It was pretty much historic, actually. Flynn threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions to end the 2011 regular season, se...

  6. Week 12 ranks: Trust Rashad Jennings

    Eric Karabell

    It was around this time a year ago that fantasy owners were officially tired of running back Rashad Jennings. Then the starter for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jennings replaced an injured Maurice Jones-Drew, but he did little with his opportunity despi...

  7. Week 11 ranks: Why Brady isn't a top-12 QB

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy analysts often cite small sample sizes as reasons to avoid believing in a certain player or team, but by Week 11, this is really no longer an issue. For example, we know which players aren't likely to turn things around -- such as Ray Rice an...

  8. Week 10 ranks reaction: Brown's value

    Eric Karabell

    We're at roughly the midpoint of the NFL season and the highest-scoring New York Giants running back this season has scored 29 fantasy points. That's in eight games! You know, the Tennessee Titans' Chris Johnson and the St. Louis Rams' Zac Stacy scor...

  9. Week 9 ranks reaction: Believe in the Bolts

    Eric Karabell

    One might think it's odd that I have ranked San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews among my top-10 options at the position this week. Heck, even I think it's odd, because I'm well aware of the anguish this underachieving running back has caused...

  10. Week 8 ranks: So many risky RB options

    Eric Karabell

    Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson scared me as a second-round pick in August, and now, after he has missed five weeks (so far) because of a hamstring injury -- four full games and the bye week -- I'm no less concerned. The difference is ...

  11. Week 7 ranks reaction: Packers offense

    Eric Karabell

    It's hard to remember the last time fantasy owners liked a Green Bay Packers running back more than any of their wide receivers, but such is the case in my rankings for Week 7. The Packers are a bit beaten up on the outside, with Randall Cobb out unt...

  12. Week 6 rankings reaction: Start Gronk?

    Eric Karabell

    The way the sly New England Patriots do business, it's downright impossible to know whether tight end Rob Gronkowski will really suit up and play in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints, and perhaps we won't know before the 1 p.m. ET games begin. An...

  13. Ranks reaction: Assessing the Rams RBs

    Eric Karabell

    The annoying St. Louis Rams running back situation took another odd twist Wednesday morning when assumed starter Daryl Richardson announced on Twitter that he was not going to be starting in Week 5. OK, so who is starting for the Rams' tasty match...

  14. Ranks reaction: Assessing the Bucs offense

    Eric Karabell

    One might consider the news of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback change from veteran Josh Freeman to rookie Mike Glennon as potentially devastating to the value of top-five running back Doug Martin and top-10 wide receiver Vincent Jackson, but being...

  15. Ranks reaction: Where to rank fill-in RBs?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy football value, at times, is all about a player's opportunity, and other times it's about a player's talent. In the case of Atlanta Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers, he's really nothing special. While acknowledging the absence of startin...

  16. Week 2 rankings reaction: Stick with MJD

    Eric Karabell

    The first in-season NFL Power Rankings are out, and it isn't surprising that the Jacksonville Jaguars fell from near the bottom to the very last spot. After all, the Jaguars' offense did not score in Week 1. In a fantasy sense, there are two relevant...
