Every year, without fail, there are a handful of top fantasy picks that just seem to struggle at the beginning of the season.

While some people see these under-performers as fantasy busts, often times their lackluster start is simply due to tough match-ups.

TradeOne of my favorite things to do early in the season is to circle these under-performing superstars like a shark circling his prey and then right before the prey can get away…I strike!

That basically means I try and buy low on some of these proven fantasy studs from the year before that have gotten off to slow starts.

With week one of the fantasy football season over and week two looming, I’ve had a lot of friends ask me what “sleepers” still might be available in their league that they could potentially add to their roster.

sleep·er ˈslēpər (noun): a term used by fantasy football team owners that denotes a player who has yet to make a big splash in the NFL, but has the potential to have a breakout fantasy season.

While I’m always happy to give me expert advice to friends and strangers alike (as long as the person asking isn’t in one of the 11 leagues I’m playing in), I do get slightly perturbed by the term “sleeper”. 7-Super-Deep-Fantasy-Football-Sleepers-2015

Every year dozens of articles are published seemingly every day talking about sleepers-this and sleepers-that. But the vast majority of the time they are all talking about the same players.

Think about that for a second…

If all the popular Fantasy Football websites and magazines are talking about the same sleepers, how much of a sleeper can they really be?!

Because I’m not the type of guy who’s going to lazily rehash what everyone else has said about sleepers so far, I am going to make you look like a fantasy genius by identifying some players nobody has ever heard of that at some point could have solid value.

So with that, lets take a look at my Super Deep Fantasy Football Sleepers for 2015. Continue Reading…

You have made it through all the injuries, the game time decisions, the tough matchups, the crazy bye weeks and the moment we have all been waiting for has arrived… It’s the Fantasy Football Finals!

Only 2 teams remain and this is the time where the tough decisions make all the difference.

Fantasy Football Finals - One Shot One Opportunity

Better player with a tough matchup vs lesser player with better matchups, top QB vs tough Defense or mid-level QB with the amazing matchup, top QB in a bad weather game or ok you get it….

In my final fantasy football blog of the season I will go over some matchups that could derail some fantasy studs and I will suggest some possible waiver wire gems that could convert guts into glory!

Here are some players that I’m guessing are on a number of teams in the finals that I think may struggle this week due to bad matchups:

Every year after I draft my fantasy football team I sit back and say to myself “yep, this year is my year!”.

And what’s not to feel good about? I did my research, I feel confident in my picks and the draft website projects me to finish towards the top of the league so It should be a breeze making it into playoffs.

Nothing to be afraid of here, right?

Fantasy Football Horror Story

But then week 1 arrives, and some ominous things begin to happen to my fantasy football roster.

At first I write them off as coincidence and no big deal, but week after week it just keeps getting worse.

Tell me if you’ve seen this scary movie before.

Now that we are four weeks into the fantasy football season, you have a pretty good idea of what your team is and if you a realistic shot to make the playoffs.

To gear up for the next two-thirds of the season, you might want to pull off a trade or two to try and really strengthen your squad.

But you shouldn’t just make a trade for the sake of making a trade, right?

If you’re going to make a fantasy trade, you want it to be more beneficial to you than the person you’re trading with.

The trick is you have to make your trade partner feel just as good about the trade as you do.

To help you out, I’m going to share with you my personal system for making fantasy football trades.

And folks, I’ve never shared this with anyone before. Up until now I’ve kept this information closely guarded.

Every year in Fantasy Football there are guys that seemingly come out of nowhere to help your team dominate and then there are those other guys.

And by those other guys, I mean the guys you drafted early who were supposed to carry your team but they either got hurt or they seem to completely forget how to play football.

Early-Season-Fantasy-Football-Surprises-Letdowns

A prime example of this happened last year with then Cleveland Browns RB, Trent Richardson – a top 15 pick in most fantasy leagues.

After Richardson was traded to the Colts, fantasy owners got even more excited (I was one of them) because now he was the RB in a high powered offense that was primed to score a ton of points.

What happened next however was not expected. Richardson looked slow, was awful and essentially fell flat on his face dashing the championship dreams of so many fantasy owners.

This year has been no different.

The trend continues as we have some Fantasy Surprises and Letdowns that have come to light after the first 2 weeks.

Things looking bad for your fantasy football team after Week 1?

Maybe you’re in the exact same position I’m in. You lost your game, two of your running backs got hurt and your starting QB was awful (true story).

Lose-Fantasy-Football-Dont-Panic

Clearly things aren’t looking up and you’re now in a nice hole to start the season.

But if there is one thing that I have learned over the years of playing fantasy football, it’s do not over-react, do not panic and do not trade or drop any players based off week one’s results.

This is the classic reaction for a lot of Fantasy Players, they realize that the football season is short and they don’t want to fall too far behind.

I totally understand that and I would just like to remind you that all you have to do is win enough games to make the playoffs!
