Curtis Samuel

Carolina Panthers

Samuel Back in Pads


Curtis Samuel was back in full pads for today's practice (Wednesday), he has missed almost all of training camp with a hamstring problem that began as a issue in the spring. He's been out for so long that it's hard to see him having a immediate early-season role.

Fantasy Goo: Samuel is the ultimate utility knife if he can get healthy, he can pick up the big plays vacated by Ginn and match anything fellow rookie McCaffrey does in the passing game.

Ty Montgomery

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Rookie's on Display


“Ty Montgomery’s likely absence from Saturday night’s preseason game at Washington will put an even bigger spotlight on the depth-chart battle involving three of Green Bay’s third-day draft picks. Williams is the front-runner in part because he’s shown the best aptitude for pass protection in the backfield. Jones has displayed a different gear in the open field that he’d love to show off in a game if he gets a crease. Mays is the best example of compact power, at 5-10 and 230 pounds.”

Fantasy Goo:Ty performed very well last year with the 3rd best juke rate of 34% and the best yards per contact per touch of all RBs at 2.8. The issue with Montgomery is Jamaal Williams is in line to take away the short yardage work and it’s unclear what type of volume Ty can handle as he rushed double digits in only 1 game.

Jaron Brown

Arizona Cardinals

Jaron Number Two?


Larry Fitzgerald is the No. 1 wideout. Brown? “He’s No. 2 right now,” Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday.
“I’ve been here for a while,” Jaron Brown said. “Every camp is different. We obviously have injuries, and that gives me an opportunity. I just try to take advantage.

Fantasy Goo: I could see Jaron shooting up draft boards, and I like him as a last round dart throw, but this just makes that receiving corps all the more crowded. A torn ACL prevented Jaron from possibly breaking-out last year. Yesterday we thought JJ Nelson would emerge, I’m sure we will be re-visiting this regularly.

Cole Beasley

Dallas Cowboys

Beasley Under the Radar


NFL Next Gen Stats have revealed many of their numbers to the public recently. Hartbeat picked this one out on Twitter: Cole Beasley adding another advanced stat that he thrives in, Top 10 in separation among all pass catchers.

Fantasy Goo: Beasley was one of the most efficient weapons in the NFL last year. His Defense-adjusted Yards above Replacement and Defense-adjusted Value over Average ranked as 5th best among WRs. For more on Beasley and others check out the Pyro Pulse podcast episode 6, WR Tiers.

John Brown

Arizona Cardinals

John Brown’s Health Back in Question


WR John Brown looking like sickle cell IS NOT being managed by the Cardinals. Could be another injury plagued season for Brown. Arians said WR John Brown not practicing full time is a concern (He's been participating in certain drills during practice).

Fantasy Goo: JJ Nelson was the WR11 in PPR scoring weeks 13-17, it appears as though we should be drafting Nelson as one of our late round flyers immediately. If the Brown news continues to be negative we will begin to see Nelson’s stock rise. Jaron Brown and Chad Williams are names we should also keep an eye on, but Arians has complained about their lack of performance publicly.

Maxx Williams

Baltimore Ravens

Maxx Looks Slow, Open Door for Watson


“Tight end Maxx Williams deserves a ton of credit for persevering through a serious knee surgery and getting back onto the field this summer. But in watching him run, it’s still pretty clear that he has a ways to go. He has bulked up and gotten considerably stronger, so it will be interesting to see whether he becomes more of a blocking tight end, assuming he’s on the season-opening roster.”

fantasy Goo: Ben Watson appears to be worth a last round flier. Denis Pitta was the number eight TE overall last year and he only scored 2 TD’s. Watson was the number 6 TE in 2015 with Drew Brees throwing him 6 TD’s.

Ryan Mathews

Philadelphia Eagles

Ryan Matthews Released


After passing his physical earlier today, The Eagles have informed former starting RB Ryan Mathews that he's been released. This move was completely expected, the Eagles save a bunch of money by releasing him now.

Fantasy Goo: Hartbeat would like to see him land in: IND, SF, MIA or CHI (all backup roles). I think the Giants or Ravens should see what he has left in the tank, even if it’s just a few games Matthews is a talented back, he’s just been drenched with injuries. I don’t think the team that picks him up has to pay much for him.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Freeman in Concussion Protocol


Coach Quinn says Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol, will be ruled out for Sunday's game. This really means nothing if he’s back by next week, but if this lingers like Jay Ajayi’s concussion, Coleman might actually be worth his draft value in the sixth round.

Fantasy Goo: Despite being only 206 lbs he had the 3rd most RZ carries with 53. Although Coleman is an extremely strong receiver Freeman was still top 5 in catches among RBs on only a 63% snap share.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette Battling Same Issues


Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette suffered a foot injury and HC Doug Marrone said team intends to be "careful with him." Fournette battled a recurring foot/ankle injury throughout his final season at LSU. It was a real problem most of the year.

Fantasy Goo: Fournette was clocked running 22.9 MPH at LSU last season, for reference Tyreek Hill was the NFLs fastest player at 23.2MPH. It appears as though Jacksonville is being cautious, but rookies need to get on the field and learn the nuances of the NFL, especially pass blocking.

Jordan Matthews

Buffalo Bills

Matthews Must Play With Pain


Bills' WR Jordan Mathews has what team is calling "a chip fracture in his sternum" and is week to week.
The good news is that it’s just a pain tolerance issue. The bad news is that it can be pretty painful.

Fantasy Goo: Matthews move to Buffalo had very little effect on his projections, but with lack of practice with his new team he will almost certainly get off to a slow start. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Bills and Eagles skill players.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Lee High Ankle Sprain Opens Door for Hurns, Again


Jaguars WR Marqise Lee suffered a high-ankle sprain, source said. He'll push hard to be ready for Week 1, but caution could push it back.

Fantasy Goo: Lee was the 39th overall pick of the 2014 draft. In 2016 he caught a career-high 63 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns. He was finally healthy after continuous injuries the last two years. I think many would rank him higher if we could be sure that he has beaten Allen Hurns out for regular targets.

Jordan Reed

Washington Redskins

Reed Has "Special Shoes"


“Redskins tight end Jordan Reed said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference for his sprained big toe. Reed said, "I'll be out there shortly." He remains on the PUP list.”

Fantasy Goo: Jay Gruden has made it very clear that the offense runs through Jordan Reed, this was never more prominent than when the Redskins let their two best WRs based on production walk this offseason. Reed has obviously red flags when it comes to injuries, he is one dirty hit away from a career ending concussion. When he is healthy, there is no TE that I would rather have, Reed has averaged the most fantasy points per game over the past two seasons and is targeted on a minimum of 15% of his routes.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Shepard Back in Practice


“Just 11 days after he was carted off the practice field with an ankle injury fearing the worst, Shepard practiced fully with his teammates on Sunday. There appeared to be very few restrictions on the second-year receiver, who also didn't seem to be favoring his injured ankle at all.”

Fantasy Goo: Shepard finished second among rookie WRs in targets, catches, yards and touchdowns. In general, second year WRs see a jump in fantasy production by 16%, but Sterling is more likely to move in an inverse fashion. With the Giants bringing in Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, Shepard is the most likely to see a decrease in targets. See Hartbeat, WR Gold Diggers vol.1 for more.

Robby Anderson

New York Jets

Robby With Early Bomb


With Enunwa out for the season the New York Jets will be looking for one of their young receivers to step-up. On their first drive Josh McCown connected with Robby Anderson for a 53 yard gain and finished the drive with a 4-yard TD pass to Charone Peake. Anderson finished the first half with three receptions for 71 yards.

Fantasy Goo: Anderson could be a nice late-round flyer, but this offense doesn’t project for much fire-power. Anderson projects for a 63/830/4 line and Peake is nothing more than a DFS GPP play or possible bye-week flyer.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Ajayi Still in Concussion Protocol


Running backs coach Danny Barrett believes Kenyan Drake could be an every-down back if Jay Ajayi misses multiple games. He said Drake is “more reliable, more dependable, being where he’s supposed to be – especially in our passing game”

Fantasy Goo: I’m not necessarily buying what they’re selling, but Ajayi out for 10 days so far does concern me. Gase was not happy with Ajayi to start last year and it was a work-ethic issue. A concussion requires medical clearance and cannot be put in the same category, but Gase seems to have the old-school mentality of, “you can’t make the club from the tub.” If Ajayi is out for any amount of time we can expect about a 50/50 split from Drake and Damien Williams, neither is built for work-horse carries.

Jordan Matthews

Buffalo Bills

Bills replace Watkins with Jordan Matthews


“Bills acquired WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for CB Ronald Darby.” I’m not quite sure what the Bills are thinking here, they now have three (Zay Jones, Anquan Boldin) receivers that play predominantly out of the slot.

Fantasy Goo: For Matthews this is pretty much a lateral move, if he continues to play from the slot. He is far more successful from the slot compared to playing the outside receiver positions.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Six Game Suspension


NFL suspended Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Reports out of the Ezekiel Elliot camp say the player is considering sitting out all of the 2017 NFL season if suspended. Zeke will be appealing the decision with his lawyers in full force, the appeal will most likely be heard by Roger Goodell because the initial suspension was handed down by Todd Jones.

Fantasy Goo: Staggs projections have about a 100 point drop-off for Zeke in terms of year end points. He drops from RB3 to RB14 projections wise, his rank will be slightly higher because we can factor in replacement value with other RB's. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the serious goo on who to stream/handcuff Elliot with, and how this affects the value of the other Cowboys skill players.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette Talking Speed


Fournette told NFL Network after his first preseason game that the step up in competition didn’t faze him at all. In fact, while many players say the speed of the game is difficult to get used to in the NFL, Fournette thought the opposite was true after he carried nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown in a preseason win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Goo: Fournette was clocked running 22.9 MPH at LSU last season, for reference Tyreek Hill was the NFLs fastest player at 23.2MPH. Impressive, but more talk like this and Fournette will run right into a brick wall week 1. If he thinks the Patriots team he saw last night was indicative of full-speed, first string, NFL game-day, he’s in for a rude awakening.

Tiered Fantasy Football Rankings - 2012

 

A quick overview of what tiered ranking sheets are: On one piece of paper you will have 4 columns, 1 for each position: QB, RB, WR and TE and within each column you will evaluate the value of players within sub tiers for each position. Think of each tier as a class ranking, Tier 1 is the best player or players in your view at that position and when you go to Tier 2, you are saying there is a drop off from the previous group and how many fantasy points they can score, and this second tier group. Really you are classifying every player at each position against the value of the other players you can draft at that same position. You can have as many sub tiers as you see fit, it's your call as long as those tier breaks are telling you something. The beauty of this approach is not just listing guys, you can do that anywhere - it's that you can compare where your highest rated guy at each position stands in one glance, because it's all on the same sheet. If you see a guy you have ranked high and names of players beneath that player on your list are getting checked off, you know - wow, the highest rated guy on my RB TIER sheet is still available, I should probably grab that guy for my next pick, because he presents the highest value in my mind's eye.

Last August, leading up to the 2011 NFL season, I wrote a piece on this subject of TIERS in a ground-breaking piece that I called Tiers For Fears. I got a lot of flack for that name from my Pyro® partners, so I'm changing my second incarnation on the subject - to Tiers Of Joy. Wait, I am, what?! I've been brainwashed, this is what my partners want to call it this time around, and because I was in a docile mood I said ok, but good lord this title sounds like the title of a Tatum Channing & Amanda Seyfried straight to Netflix chick flick. Oye, let's just not call it anything, and focus in on the fact that constructing detailed tiers is the best way to walk out of your fantasy football draft with the best team this year. 

 

This is the third year we have been heavily promoting TIERED RANKING SHEETS as a must-do approach to achieving the best fantasy football draft results. I've been leading the charge on getting this drafting strategy out to our audience, like Hugh Hefner's bedside Viagra jar, it'll get your blood flowing. It's hands down the best way to walk out of your draft with the team that everyone in your league is talking about, and will give you the control to walk away with the team you actually pre-determined that you wanted. Injuries happen and sometimes your love affairs don't work out, just look at the divorce rate in America for heavens sake, but if you do the work you need and set your tiers up in a detailed and well organized manner, you will have the depth at your backup spots if anything should go wrong… and for the most part, they tend go wrong at some point.

 

I'll start this out by saying (in a Daniel Stern 'The Wonder Years' narrator voice) I started playing fantasy football in 1988, and the first player I ever drafted was Jerry Rice, fresh off of his record-breaking 22 TD season in a strike shortened 12 game MVP season. From that eye-opening draft until just 4 years ago, I would come into every draft with a legal pad filled with pilot pen written notes about my favorite players, maybe some notes on when to go for who, lists of sleeper picks and guys I wanted to stay away from, my favorite targets would have heavily drenched circles around their names and other players would have a big star next to them, just like something out of trapper keeper in any jr. high school. I would usually have a Fantasy Football Index magazine open to the blue page with their TD-only or Yardage/TD rankings "cheat sheets" with more notes and stars next to those, maybe even a highlighter adding to the confusion. During the draft I would keep track of things and the players I was targeting between the magazine and my notes. For the most part, it was all fine and dandy, I did pretty well, always had a formidable team (except for a depressing season or two; cough, cough) and won a few championships along the way.

 

Hindsight being 20/20, it's obvious to me now that I would have had a far better fantasy football record and had more plaques on our league trophies had I used the tiered scoring system I am talking about here from the very start of my career.

 

Can't look back in the rear-view mirror and have regrets, so you must move forward with your loaded gun of newfound knowledge. The most important thing about TIERS is that you have a bird's eye view of what you want for your team versus what is available at each position when the draft is happening and you are in real-time. If a run of TEs is happening, and you want one of the top guys, your sheet can tell you who to grab; but even more importantly, tiers allows you to jump off on trends and grab the highest rated player you may have at another position that is bound to be the subject of the next run that happens. Be the trend starter, not the trend follower. You need to have an organized method to keep up with what's happening in the draft and what other people are in need of, who they seem to be targeting, the best way for that is paying close attention to the real time draft room results. Even if you are at the draft with your homies, if there isn't a draft board, you need to have that information at the tip of your fingers. It's almost your main focus draft night, what's happening... you have the TIERS, so that part is done and ready for you to utilize, focus on who's got what on their team, and who needs what to help fill it. This will help you grab a guy that would be gone next time around, instead of taking a guy early you could have a couple rounds later. THIS FALLS UNDER THE KNOW YOUR LEAGUE (listen to this podcast here) PARADIGM!

 

Your tiers all being on one sheet right in front of you, helps you be in control in the heat of the moment. If you are turning pages of the magazine and trying to compare a couple guys you are considering while you are on the clock, you'll rush it - you'll panic and you will most likely make the wrong pick. I've done this literally hundreds of times, I speak from years of experience on this fact. Championship teams are rarely created while you rush thru the information and are doing game log stat comparisons while it's your pick! Put the time in before, get it right - get it to where you feel like they are the correct assumptions to get your rankings within the tiers spot on, and you'll be amazed at how fun and successful your draft will go. It's not rocket science! Nothing I preach is, it's just preparation.

 

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. I had Tim Tebow, Victor Cruz and Cam Newton all higher on my board than most people last year, and my tiers reflected that, so when I was late in the draft, and it was time to grab my 6th WR, I'm prepared to get lucky by taking a flyer on the upside of Victor Cruz over the marginal output I would have been given by taking a subpar starter like Josh Morgan. Take a chance in your mid to late tiers, be willing to make a ballsy pick, because that call could be the difference maker on a championship caliber team. Getting a guy you know will have 650 yards and 6 TDs will not bring you a crown.

 

The reason why tiers are the best is they give you the most control in the heat of the moment. You are like a Hawk in the sky surveying the land below you, you are Ed Harris in the Truman Show running the show when you arrive at your FF draft with your well researched and analyzed TIER SHEETS in tow. Houdini always says it "do the homework", work hard before hand on your tiers, when you think they are done, compare every guy within 5 people of one another at each position in your rankings and ask:

 

WOULD I DRAFT THE UPSIDE OF TITUS YOUNG RIGHT HERE OR SHOULD I GO FOR THE STABILITY OF ANQUAN BOLDIN HERE?

 

Compare the guys in close tiers and ask the question, "would I take player A in my draft and feel better about it than going with player B, who's maybe a safer pick?" Decide whether upside or consistency is important to you on this pick. But if you do that comparison on a number of guys and really think it thru at the granular level prior to when your pick is on the clock, that pick is going to be a pretty simple one to make when the time comes and you are drafting.

 

When there is a run happening in my draft, the first thing I do is look at my tiers and try to see if there is someone at a different position than it appears to be a run on - and try to swoop up the best value and go against the grain. I don't advocate getting tricky and trying to be too sneaky at all, but most of the times trendy people regret what they were drawn to after the fact. 

 

This may seem unimportant, but when you create really tight tiers leading up to the draft, it's like memorizing your lines or studying hard for a big test (not cramming), you are going to be more successful. We've all said it and heard it: "I've barely studied at all for this draft, oh well, I rule at this anyway"… only to kick ourselves in the arse for the entire season for being lazy while we have no shot at a playoff birth by week 6. From this point forward, do yourself a favor and don't be that guy. Become a Champion, not a league donor. Put the work in, craft your tiers deligently and try to tear them down, and continually refine them, if you really do this - I promise amazing results.

 

Food for thought on why TIERS are the way to go and I mention some do's and don't that can help you along the way:

 

-Your tier sheet will have all your favorite players at every position on 1 easy to see all at once page.


-If you check off all the players that are getting drafted by other teams, you can see guys you like better still available higher up on your list.


-Do the who would I draft this guy or that guy test on every player at every position that you consider a close call prior to draft night.


-Don't do a cram job with your tiers, let them breathe, start early and refine till you nail it prior to your draft.


-On draft day if you pick a guy that you have lower on your tier than an available guy at the same position - you failed. Stick to the tiers to a T.


-Tiers allow you to see trends, but you also need to have a draft chart, so you know what position needs the teams near you may have. 


-Tiers are a great means to finding gems in the second half of the draft, FYI- get a little ballsy at the end.


-"Need based drafting" is best achieved with solid TIERED RANKING SHEETS in any draft.


-Take a chance! With tiers you need to put guys you really want on your team higher than orders would put them.


-Upside is important, don't be afraid in your research to overvalue a guy you think is due, and primed for a good year.


-You can have fun at your draft and drink a lot of beers and eat more slices of pizza than usual because you already did the legwork!


-If you can print out on a 11x17 piece of paper, it gives you a plenty of room for important notes.


-Know who you want to pick with your first pick without looking at your tier sheets, you still want to envision your first few picks.


-Last year my 8-10 pick in my main league were Wes Welker, Steve Smith and Marshawn Lynch… I owned up to my tiers.


-Before you touch your tiers, do the research… learn the information and look at the data to define the true value of guys and their current situations.


-Make sure you take my tiers system and make it your own, move players around based on your beliefs - don't just take my word for it.


-Tiers allows you to see your determined drop off at each position so you can target the right guy at each pick before that drop happens.


-Be confident with your tiers and you will prosper.


-Be smart with not going to early on TIER 1 tight ends, but TIERS can help you grab the second best tight end instead of the 10th best WR.


It's pretty simple, I've always fashioned myself a solid fantasy football owner, but with this system in place and the homework being done… it's unstoppable. In the 4 season since I started using this detailed tier system for my drafts, I have: won 1 championship, lost in two championships, had the most points in my league twice (if AP28 didn't get hurt last year 3 times), and had the best overall record in my 10 man league twice… it's been a nice run. One that will continue this season because I have already done my first TIER SHEET in June and will continue to refine it (for myself and for you guys) until draft day.
