Making the Case Not to Draft DeVante Parker

The 2020 NFL season is hopefully just around the corner, and that means it’s time to get ready for fantasy football. Every year fantasy owners select players that either hit or turn into a bust. In this article, I will explain why fantasy owners should avoid Miami Dolphins’ wide receiver DeVante Parker. According to Fantasy Pros PPR ADP, Parker is being selected as the WR26 and 61st overall player off the board.

2020 Fantasy Football: Redraft Mock Draft 1.0

The 2020 NFL season is just around the corner, and that means its time to do more mock drafts. Here at The Scorecrow, 10 of our writers have come together for our first redraft mock draft of the season. Our 10 writers did a 20 round mock draft using PPR scoring. The lineup is one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, two flex, one super flex, one D/ST, one kicker, and 10 bench spots.

12 Buy Low Dynasty Quarterbacks

The 2020 NFL draft is a little more than a month behind us and rookie drafts are wrapping up. With everyone in love with their new shiny rookie players, now is the time to buy low on players coming off a bad year, veterans with something left in the tank, or cheap long shots. For quarterbacks it’s hard to gauge their trade value, whether you play in a single quarterback league or a super flex league. However, we all know playing in a one quarterback league is lame and super flex is the new standard. With that said, I’ve put together 12 quarterbacks who fit into five categories that dynasty fantasy owners should look into trading for, especially if you are hurting at the position.

Best Fantasy Landing Spot For Top Remaining Free Agents

Every year free agency is full of surprises but this year has been extra wild. Tom Brady is now a Buccaneer, DeAndre Hopkins was traded to the Cardinals without the Texans getting back a first-round pick, and the Colts gave up a top 15 pick and a boatload of money for DeForest Buckner while also signing Philip Rivers to a one year deal. We are almost a week into free agency, yet a lot of players haven’t signed new deals.

Fantasy Football Roundtable: Best Free Agent Landing Spots (Part Two)

It’s the offseason and that means the NFL world is moving slowly. Actually, who am I kidding. Free agency is almost here and where players sign will have ripple impact throughout the league. Not only for Super Bowl odds next year but also for dynasty fantasy owners. Each signing changes the views for not only that player but the rest of the team he’s leaving and joining, as well as potential landing spots for rookies.

TNF Fantasy Preview: New York Jets vs Baltimore Ravens

One week of the fantasy playoffs down, two more to go. Hopefully, you found out Monday night that your team advanced to the second round or enjoyed your first-round bye but now the decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. Tonight’s contest between the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens is the last Thursday night game in 2019 and the NFL couldn’t have picked a more one-sided matchup. The Ravens are trying to lock up the AFC North and a first-round bye while the Jets are already planning vacations and looking forward to the offseason.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Dallas Cowboys vs Chicago Bears

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and found out Monday night that they made the playoffs. If you did be thankful for it and if you didn’t, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year, especially in dynasty leagues. With three weeks to go (unless you play in week 17 for some weird reason), every decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. To kick off the start of the fantasy playoffs we have a matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. Not only is this game critical to fantasy owners but to both franchises as they fight for the playoffs.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Thanksgiving 3 Game Slate

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hopefully, you are getting ready to spend time with family and friends while eating turkey and enjoying some NFL action. Like every year, we have three games on Thanksgiving. First up at 12:30 pm EST is the Chicago Bears at the Detroit Lions, followed by the Buffalo Bills at the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 pm EST, and to close out the night is the New Orleans Saints at the Atlanta Falcons at 8:20 pm EST. While only one of these games offers serious playoff implications, all three offer some interesting fantasy options.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Indianapolis Colts vs Houston Texans

This time next week all of us will be enjoying Thanksgiving with three football games on. Unfortunately, that’s not till next week and we have to get through another week of football first. The good news is this is the last week of the season with teams on a bye. Fantasy owners will be without their star players on the Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Minnesota Vikings this week. However, tonight’s matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans should offer an entertaining game.

Fantasy Football

Week 12 Fantasy Streamers

The end is finally here! Well, the bye weeks that is. Week 12 is the last week with teams on the bye this season as the Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Minnesota Vikings all finally get a week off. Unfortunately, for fantasy owners, that means they will be without several top performers as they push for the fantasy playoffs. Those players include Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Kirk Cousins, Travis Kelce, Hunter Henry, and Harrison Butker among others.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns

Two weeks from today is Thanksgiving and that means the NFL regular season is on the back nine. With the San Francisco 49ers losing in overtime Monday night to the Seattle Seahawks, every team has lost at least one game this season. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins pulled off their second straight win, defeating the Indianapolis Colts, throwing NFL draft junkies for a spin. Last week’s Thursday night game between the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers was entertaining, close, and offered plenty of fantasy points.

Fantasy Football

Waiver Wire Targets for Week 11

The month of November has been a wacky one in the NFL. The Dolphins are 2-0 as they defeated the Jets and Colts this month after going 0-7 in the first two months of the season. Meanwhile, coming off a bye, the Rams lost to the Steelers on Sunday while the Saints got destroyed by the Falcons. This coming week the Packers, Giants, Seahawks, and Titans are on a bye, leaving fantasy owners with several key players unavailable as they push for a playoff spot.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Los Angeles Chargers vs Oakland Raiders

Even though it feels like it just started, we are more than halfway through the 2019 season. The San Francisco 49ers are the only remaining undefeated team as the New England Patriots loss on Sunday while the Cincinnati Bengals are the only remaining winless team as the Miami Dolphins got their first win of the season against the New York Jets. Last week’s Thursday night game was closer than many expected between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. Hopefully, tonight’s game is similar. In a division matchup between the Los Angles Chargers and Oakland Raiders, as both teams enter tonight’s game needing a win in the tight AFC Wild Card race.

TNF Fantasy Preview: San Francisco 49ers vs Arizona Cardinals

Happy Halloween everyone! The NFL trade deadline was Tuesday and several players got moved. One of the players moved was Kenyan Drake, who will play tonight for the Arizona Cardinals. Last week’s Thursday night game was boring and I expect tonight’s game to be similar. The Cardinals are coming off a 31-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints, while the San Francisco 49ers destroyed the Carolina Panthers 51-13. Even at home, the Cardinals are massive underdogs and this game will be hard to watch, so be smart and enjoy your Halloween doing something else.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings

Last week’s Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos wasn’t much of a contest. Despite the Chiefs losing star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the second quarter with a dislocated kneecap, the Broncos didn’t score after the opening drive and went on to lose 30-6. Hopefully, tonight’s game between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings is more entertaining, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

Fantasy Football

Week 8 Fantasy Streamers

Week seven of the NFL season got off to a scary start when the Kansas City Chiefs lost Patrick Mahomes on Thursday night with a dislocated knee injury in their win against the Denver Broncos. Thankfully, Mahomes is expected to just miss a few weeks and will likely be back after the team’s week 12 bye. In the meanwhile, fantasy owners can’t drop Mahomes and since you spent the early draft capital on him, you likely didn’t draft a second quarterback. The best way to try and fill his shoes is to stream the position. As part of this week’s streamers, I will give you a few options to replace Mahomes with for this week.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos

Last week’s Thursday night game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots was a closer game than many expected, at least till the fourth quarter. Eventually, the Patriots won 35-14 as the defense scored two touchdowns to match Tom Brady’s two rushing touchdowns. While the game wasn’t full of fantasy points, Golden Tate and Julian Edelman joined Brady and the Patriots D/ST as the only players to score more than 14 fantasy points in the game. Hopefully, tonight’s game offers more big-time fantasy scorers.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: New York Giants vs New England Patriots

For the second week in a row, the Thursday night matchup was an entertaining game. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Los Angeles Rams 30-29 as Greg Zuerlein missed a game-winning 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds left in the game. The game was full of fantasy points for both teams and hopefully, we get another fantasy stuffed game tonight between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. However, I think this game will be boring and lack a lot of big-time fantasy scorers.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks

Last week’s Thursday night game was a good one, with the Eagles defeating the Packers 34-27 thanks to a tipped Aaron Rodgers pass that turned into the game ending interception. After the first few Thursday night games which being boring, we get another great matchup as the Los Angeles Rams travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

Fantasy Football Roundtable: 2019 First Quarter Edition

The 2019 NFL season is already a quarter of the way finished and fantasy owners’ are starting to realize their team is perfect. Whether your team is 0-4 or 4-0, you can’t get lazy and accept the record. Fantasy owners need to be active in trade talks, waiver wire adds, and reflect on what they did wrong during the draft. So what have we learned over the first quarter of the NFL season fantasy wise? The Scorecrow family is here to help with all that, putting together another roundtable giving you their opinions on five fantasy football questions. Be sure to follow all the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.

2019 Fantasy Football: Top Waiver Wire Adds after Week Four

We are roughly a quarter of the way through the 2019 NFL season. Most teams have played four games with the exceptions being the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers as they had their bye week this past weekend. This coming week, fantasy owners will be without their Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins players. That means no Matthew Stafford, Kerryon Johnson, or Kenny Golladay. It also means no D/ST to stream against the awful Dolphins.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Philadelphia Eagles vs Green Bay Packers

In tonight’s game, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Green Bay to take on the 3-0 Packers in a game some are calling a must-win for the Eagles. Unlike the past few Thursday Night games, this one should be entertaining and very fantasy friendly. There are several players I would feel comfortable playing in tonight’s game but first let’s take a look at my predictions from last week.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Tennessee Titans vs Jacksonville Jaguars

I’ll be the first to admit when I’m wrong and last Thursday I was awful with my fantasy takes. My bad, hopefully, I’m better this week. Good news is if you’re a fan of low scoring and tough defense, this game is for you. For the rest of us, it’s the perfect game to waste on a Thursday night. The Tennessee Titans travel to Jacksonville to take on their division rival Jaguars in a battle of run-first offenses.

Fantasy Football

Week 3 Fantasy Streamers

Week two of the NFL season wasn’t a friendly one for the Pittsburgh Steelers or New Orleans Saints. Both teams lost their starting quarterback for several weeks or longer and both team’s playoff chances look slim as the Saints are a missed field goal away from joining the Steelers at 0-2. For fantasy owners who now have to replace Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger, streaming the quarterback position is your best way to replace your top quarterback. As part of this week’s streamers, I will give you a few options to replace the two future Hall of Famers.

Fantasy Football

TNF Fantasy Preview: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers

Last week’s Thursday Night Game was a boring game, in large part due to two impressive defenses and two underwhelming offenses. The matchup this week should be more entertaining between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers. Entering week two, several fantasy story lines have changed due to injuries and underwhelming opening week performances. One of those players was Jameis Winston, who had a horrible game against the San Francisco 49ers, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble. Will he bounce back in week two?

Fantasy Football

Fantasy Battle: Rashaad Penny vs Kareem Hunt

Everyone has a different strategy when it comes to drafting their fantasy team. Some like to go “zero RB”, while others like to use the best player available approach. While there isn’t necessarily a correct way to draft your team, every fantasy expert will recommend to build up your running back depth in the middle rounds. Each year there is a running back that gets drafted in the middle rounds that turns out to be a plug and play starter for fantasy owners. In this fantasy battle, we will take a look at two potential options currently going in the eighth round according to Fantasy Football Calculator.

Fantasy Football

Fantasy Battle: Which Running Back Should go 1.01?

Almost every year, fantasy owners picking early in the first round target bell cow running backs as they are worth their weight in gold. This year there are four running backs in that group: Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Ezekiel Elliott. A month ago, these four running backs were being drafted all in the top four picks according to Fantasy Football Calculator. However, since Zeke is currently holding out, his ADP has dropped down a little to 1.05 and is the fifth player being taken on average, behind the other three running backs and DeAndre Hopkins.

Fantasy Fallout from the Tyreek Hill News

Earlier today the NFL announced that the Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill would not be suspended after being investigated for domestic violence this offseason. Whether you agree or disagree with this decision, whether you are a fan of the NFL’s personal conduct policy or not, the reality is Hill is allowed to take part in training camp next week and play in all 16 games this season. I’m not here to sway your opinion on the NFL’s decision or Hill as a person. I am here to explain how the news impacts the entire Chiefs’ offense from a fantasy perspective.

2018 Fantasy Football: Week 2 DFS Values

Everyone loves season long fantasy football. However, daily fantasy football has becomes bigger and bigger over the last few years.
