Need Rankings in a hurry? This is all you need! Print this quick One Pager – ONE-PAGE CHEATSHEET (PRINTABLE)

Don’t forget your ADP and DEPTH CHARTS (always updated to the minute)

You know by now that we recommend passing on the top QBs and grabbing two in the very late rounds instead to play the matchups. We have analyzed the schedules and here are the best combos: We call this Quarterback by Committee or QBBC Same with Defenses. Let others waste a pick on the top Defenses and you grab two late and play the matchups each week. DEFBC

If you do grab a stud QB like Aaron Rodgers, you will want to pair him with a QB late in the draft that has a good matchup. IDEAL BYE WEEK QBS

Do you Hate Getting Sniped before your pick? We do too! Get up to the minute ADVANCED ADP, (reserved for our members) so you know exactly where each player is going in the draft.

Lastly, If you have time to prepare, make sure you mock in our Mock Draft World Championships. No better way to practice for the real thing.

2018 DRAFT RANKINGS (always updated to the minute)


Now remember, rankings are much more accurate if you match them for your particular scoring system. This feature is a member only feature and takes a few minutes to plug in your scoring settings, but in our opinion it is well worth it. CUSTOMIZABLE FANTASY FOOTBALL RANKINGS

Ian Ritchie breaks down why he thinks this particular rookie will finish 2018 as a top ten running back!

Fantasy Football is all about opportunity and touches. Therefore, Senior Expert Shawn Childs examines last year’s data to gauge the potential opportunities each teams’ running backs will get in 2018!

Who would you prefer on your Fantasy Football squad: Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins or Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt? Dr. Roto provides his analysis!

Joe Mixon has a ton of untapped potential yet still draws a ton of hate online after a disappointing rookie season. Dr. Roto outlines why he considers Mixon undervalued heading into the 2018 season!

LeSean McCoy has been about as consistent as running backs come in Fantasy Football, if not more so. Dr. Roto outlines why 2018 may be the beginning of a slowdown in Buffalo’s zero-dimensional offense.

Dr. Roto forecasts the type of season that fourth-year wide receiver DeVante Parker will have now that Ryan Tannehill is back under center!

After a disappointing 2017 season, Dr. Roto thinks this New York Jet has a shot to breakout this coming Fantasy Football season!

The New England backfield isn’t for the faint of heart. So what does Dr. Roto think about the newest member of the backfield, Sony Michel?

Dr. Roto is at it again with another deep sleeper rookie to circle on your cheatsheets!

Brandin Cooks is now with the LA Rams and Dr. Roto is not willing to spend a fourth round pick on him if he’s just another piece of the offense instead being in the spotlight.

We’ve seen some good from Michael Crabtree, but a lot more mediocrity. In a Ravens offense not known for productive WRs, Dr. Roto recommends looking elsewhere compared to Crabtree’s ADP.

Zach Ertz is a great player but you won’t be able to draft him at a discount after yet another career season. Finding value at TE by waiting on the position allows you to address other needs earlier and that’s Dr. Roto’s strategy during his drafts this year.

An Insider Source close to Scout Fantasy Sports tells us Arizona Cardinals go-to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is not as safe a pick as he has been in previous seasons! Adam Ronis analyzes the situation with eventual Hall of Fame wideout!

Senior Fantasy Football Expert Adam Ronis explains why Randall Cobb has an amazing opportunity to bounce back in 2018 due to the return of Aaron Rodgers and the departure of Jordy Nelson. Don’t sleep on Cobb after two poor seasons in a row.

Find out why you should pounce on this wide receiver before his ADP rises any further!

Adam Ronis tells you why this wide receiver is in for a comeback season in 2018!

Adam Ronis discusses one of the most common practices in Fantasy Football: the art of drafting a late-round quarterback. Here, Ronis examines five quarterbacks to target in the later rounds on Draft Day!

Finding value late in the draft is key to success in Fantasy Football. Adam Ronis pinpoints five deep sleepers to consider.

Senior Expert Adam Ronis recommends that if you miss out on a top tier TE option, 49ers TE George Kittle is shaping up for a career-best season.

Need a late-round flier? Adam Ronis has you covered!

Senior Expert Adam Ronis looks at five players with rising ADPs in recent drafts!

If you are waiting at the tight end position, Adam Ronis provides some backup tight ends who may be worth targeting on Draft Day!

If you are in need of some wide receiver depth, Adam Ronis has a few recommendations for later on in the draft!

This player severely underperformed in 2017 but due to an injury in front of him on the depth chart, he just might have a shot at producing solid numbers this season!

Look out for the breakout! These budding stars are about to burst onto the Fantasy Football scene and help you dominate in 2018!

After reviewing every skill player from all 32 NFL teams, Senior Expert Shawn Childs takes a stab at some 2018 Fantasy Football sleepers! 

Potential bust candidates from “Rainman” NFL Expert Shawn Childs. This list includes some very surprising players whom Childs believes Fantasy owners CANNOT draft this year unless the value is PERFECT!

This player will breakout in 2018!

Sometimes the best pick is a pick you don’t make!

There’s risk involved, but you’ll never win your league playing it safe with every pick. Be bold and draft this player!


Going through the player pool to give you the average player stats to help you understand what it takes to gain an edge at each position.

Each NFL team plays 16 games out of 17 weeks in the NFL schedule. The game that they don’t play is called their bye week, or “Open Date”. It is important in fantasy football to make sure that your starters and backups do not have the same bye week since one of the primary reasons for drafting backup players to have coverage during the bye week of your starter.

Third-Year Wide Receivers
