Ed Dickson- TE- Carolina With Greg Olsen expected to be out at least another five weeks, fantasy owners should look at picking up Ed Dickson.

Playing smaller slates in daily fantasy can are challenging and rewarding. When focusing in on a smaller player pool, the lines between GPP lineups and cash lineups blur. A strong core is necessary to keep with the field and there is little room to be super-contrarian, but it is that contrarian play...

It isn’t very often that one of the most intriguing matchups in a week of NFL action involves the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s been that kind of year so far. Still, where matchups between cornerbacks and wide receivers go, that’s certainly the case in Week 5, when Antonio Brown and the Pittsburg...

We have hit that quarter mark in fantasy football where we can begin removing some of the weight from 2016 data (for the most part) and work with actionable 2017 data.
