Want to crush your fantasy draft in 2019? Prepare yourself with FantasyPros DraftWizard. On this episode of the Fantasy Football Helpers Podcast, George goes over an NFL trend regarding running backs and how you can use it to increase your fantasy score. This is especially effective in PPR leagues. This fantasy strategy is based on some data from Warren Sharp's 2019 NFL Preview. You can find it on Amazon.com here. So, the NFL has always been going towards more of a passing-based game. But now that's becoming even more true on first down. Teams used to consider first down a run play. But now teams are noticing that passing on first down is leading to a better success rate (gains of at least 4 yards) which is leading to more second and short situations. Second and short situations are key when it comes to moving the ball consistently down the field. The teams that face a lot of second and long and third and longs typically end up punting more than the other teams. So being able to get those first four yards on first down is vital to any offense. Teams are now realizing that passing the ball on…

Is Zach Ertz too expensive in 2019?

Written by
In this pod, George spitballs about the Eagles tight end situation and why Zach Ertz might be overpriced at his current ADP. Link to original photo Research Ertz was only consistent part of Eagles offense last season. He was the definition of Wentz's safety blanket. Wentz targeted Ertz a ton. Zach Ertz finished 2018 with 116 receptions, 1,163 yards, 8 touchdowns. While it was his most prolific season for catches, Ertz averaged just 10 yards per catch which is the lowest in his career. The Eagles offense was inconsistent throughout 2018, and Ertz was more of a safety blanket. The Eagles also blew a lot of leads because they were one dimensional on offense at times and struggled late in games. Eagles also couldn't run the ball much, and with Wentz coming off that ACL tear and not being able to use his legs as much to escape pressure, he likely targeted Ertz more out of necessity. That will likely change this season. The Eagles replenished their backfield adding Jordan Howard and drafting Penn State rookie Miles Sanders. They also recently signed Darren Sproles to a one-year deal. Don't think the Eagles are going to want to target Ertz as…

You can't win a draft in the first round, but you can certainly lose one. So take your stud running back or stud wide receiver and be good with that. Also, if you're drafting in the first 4 picks, you really have 4 perfect options at running back to choose from. Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffery, Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott. There's no wrong answer there. Rounds 2-4: There's some interesting value to be had in these rounds, especially at WR. A.J. Green is going off at WR11, that means he's a boarderline WR2. If you can draft a stud wide receiver like a…

On this episode of the Fantasy Football Helpers pod, George and Scott discuss CBD oil, Home Depot Fantasy and Atlanta corporations. Oh, and then they talk about who the number 1 pick should be in fantasy football drafts this season. They debate it down to 4 guys. Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffery, Ezekiel Elliott and Saquon Barkley. All these running backs are excellent, but who's the top guy? Both Scott and George go with Elliott because of several factors. For one, his offensive line will be very good in Dallas. Two, he doesn't have any running back to steal carries from him. You say 'Ok sure but can't you say the same thing about the other guys?' And the answer to that is 'yes.' So what makes Elliott better than the other guys? Well it really comes down to touchdown probability. You can't predict touchdowns. They're fluky. But running backs do have a tendency to even out their touchdown totals for the year. That's exactly what might happen with Elliott. Elliott had only six touchdowns in…

About Us

We believe Fantasy Football success comes down to two things — opportunity and talent. You will have Fantasy Football mastered once you understand how good a player is and how good of an opportunity he has to gain yards and score touchdowns. The thing is, you'll never master Fantasy Football. But you can get pretty darn good at it when you have even a slightly better understanding of opportunity and talent than the average Joe. That's what Fantasy Football Helpers is dedicated to doing.
