Prospect: Andre Williams

Injuries are an unfortunate occurrence, but one man’s loss is often another man’s gain. In fantasy football, thinking one step ahead of injuries is key to bolstering your lineup and weekly point totals.

Episode 7: Our Mock Draft Trial

Goal of this podcast: To discuss draft strategies, how important it is to mock draft, razz each other about our picks (which we don't do enough because we're too nice) and talk about undervalued running backs, defenses, and whatever else you may encounter during your fantasy mock drafts.

Prospect: Jordan Matthews

You know when the stumble across a really good 2Pac video on YouTube. At first, you’re hypnotized by its greatness, and then you scroll down to read the comments section in hopes of finding somebody who agrees with your pre-meditated thought that 2:21-2:27 is also a sick rhyme scheme.

Editor’s note: This is part two of an eight-part series where we will look at each team’s receiving core by division and analyze which receiver will be the favorite for most targets. As fantasy owners know, targets are a crucial part of success for fantasy receivers. The second article covers the AFC North.

Episode 6: Handcuffs

Goal of this podcast: To help you understand who the best backup running backs are on their respective rosters. With this knowledge, you can avoid taking a No. 1 feature that’s either injury prone, struggling due to old age, or is just not as talented as the team’s No. 2 guy for whatever reason. This should help fortify your roster with reliable running backs. 

Goal of this podcast: With Scott on vacation, I bring in a different guest to talk fantasy football. The problem though, is that he's not all that knowledgeable.

Prospect: Charles Sims

Editor's note: In light of the recent possibility of Doug Martin getting traded, this article from July 20, 2014 was re-posted to help inform you on rookie running back Charles Sims.

Every running back in the NFL can catch a pass or two thrown his way, but there are few who are truly exceptional receivers. Those gifted with the hand-eye coordination and awareness required to be a prolific pass catcher are some of the most potent fantasy players you can draft due to their versatility.

Fantasy owners who drafted Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III in 2012 hauled in perhaps the best value quarterback of the 2012 season. With an average draft position of 12th overall among quarterbacks, RG3 owners ended up getting way more bang for their buck as he steamrolled to 26 total touchdowns and 4,000 yards combined rushing and passing. By the end of 2012, RG3 ranked fifth among all quarterbacks in fantasy points with 317.5.

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.
