2019 S.o.S: Running Backs

GREEN = EASY MATCH UP (Bottom 10 teams in fantasy PPG allowed to said position)

RED = DIFFICULT MATCH UP  (Top 10 teams in fantasy PPG allowed to said position)

WHITE = NEUTRAL MATCH UP (Middle 12 teams in fantasy PPG allowed to said position)

RB S.O.S 2019
2019 Running Back S.o.S

The following is the Strength of Schedule (S.O.S) breakdown for Running Backs. Players at the position who will be impacted are listed, as well as how many good, neutral, and difficult match ups each team will see in 2019. A further breakdown of each teams playoff match ups is included as well.

Don’t forget that this break down is intended for drafting of two similar players near their appropriate ADP (average draft position). Just because the Dolphins are near the top of this list and the Chargers are near the bottom doesn’t mean you should draft Kenyan Drake over Melvin Gordon.

* The breakdown was derived as followed:

  • A Good match up is against a team that finished in the bottom 10 in fantasy PPG (points per game) vs RBs in 2018. Good match ups were awarded +1.
  • A Neutral match up is against a team that finished in the middle 12 in fantasy PPG vs RBs in 2018. Neutral match ups were awarded 0.
  • A Difficult match up is against a team that finished in the top 10 in fantasy PPG vs RBs in 2018. Difficult match ups were awarded -1.
  • Once points were added up the higher the total number, the higher the teams ranking. (Example: Christian McCaffrey has 6 Good (+6); 5 Difficult (-5); and 5 Neutral (0) match ups for a total of +1)

Call Me Crazy But … Eric Ebron Won’t Be A Top 10 Tight End

Call Me Crazy But … Eric Ebron Won’t Be A Top Ten Tight End

Fantasy football is full of trash-talking, proving your better than your friends (at least at one thing, but we all know once you’re in a league everything else you do with your league mates becomes a competition), and bold predictions. Everyone thinks they have the hottest takes, wildest theories, or know something you don’t know as they try to look like the smartest guy in the room. Well, I am here to shut that shit down, no exceptions (shout out my man Negan)! This is a series I have titled “Call me crazy but …” in which I like to take the popular names, stats, or takes from the general consensus of the fantasy big-wigs and community and tear them apart like I play quarterback for the Steelers. Continuing the 2019 edition of the series we take a look at a guy who had a ton of potential wasted in Detroit but broke out in Indianapolis last season; Mr. Eric Ebron …

Call me crazy but … Eric Ebron won’t be a top 10 tight end in 2019.

Confessions of a Fantasy Football Addict

I can feel my stomach just churning and wrapping around itself like I’m on some sort of crazy twisted rollercoaster. I can’t keep my hands still. They drum lightly on the side of my chair; slowly gaining in volume and speed, as I know it’s almost my turn. My legs feel like Jell-O as I stand up. I wipe the last of the sweat dripping down my brow and off the tip of my nose. My mouth opens but my brain doesn’t seem to know to make me speak. It feels like I’m frozen, like I’ve been standing in this pose for hours. I am a human statue. Then the words finally escape past my trembling lips.

“H-h-h-hi, I’m Anthony and I’m … I … I’m addicted to fantasy football.”

One Thing EVERY Fantasy League Needs!

What is the one thing every single fantasy football league needs, and all the successful ones have? That one thing that will keep not only league members, but also the commissioner in check?

A Constitution.

To build the foundation of a long-lasting, prosperous, cohesive, and completely unbiased league, your fantasy football league MUST follow in the same footsteps our forefathers took over 200 years ago. While freedom and the weight of an entire nation is not on your shoulders, if you are your league’s commissioner than you at least know how chaotic and unbalanced a league can become with just one dispute. People take sides. Some will say the ruling was fair, while other parties will disagree and what comes next could be a firestorm of fantasy football hell. The stuff that causes friends to lose touch, family to fight non-stop, and possibly the worst fate of all … the disbanding of your fantasy league.
