    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 3 days ago

    On today's super-duper program, Brad Evans and Brandon Funston go to war with The Book revealing their top prop bets for Super Bowl 50. Will Cam Newton shatter the rushing yards record by a QB? Can Mike Carey actually get a call right? Will Ted Ginn drop a pass? Are seismographs in the greater Santa Clara area about to go haywire? How many penalties should be expected? Can Peyton Manning actually crack 240 pass yards? 

    In addition to the prop madness, our fearless forecasters discuss the merits, if any, of Arian Foster. Is he a value pick coming off a nasty Achilles injury?

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 17 days ago

    On Wednesday's fast-paced program, Brad Evans and Brandon Funston discuss their adoration for Carlos Hyde with Chip Kelly at the controls. Where will the rusher typically go in drafts?

  • Fantasy Flash Forward WR/TE: Passing paradigm elevates OBJ, others

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 1 mth ago

    After plenty of blood, sweat and beers, another season is in the books. It's time to reflect on the year that was and look ahead to what's on the horizon for 2016. As any degenerate gamer knows, fantasy football thoughts are always at the forefront. Friday's topic: WR/TE.

    Every year, new lessons are learned. Subsequently, what New Year's resolution, player specific or in general, will you adhere to at WR/TE in light of experiences gained this past fall? 

    Brandon  – Pay the premium for a premium WR in next year's draft. My best fantasy squad of '15 featured DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson. My running back corps (fronted initially by Marshawn Lynch) was a flaming brown paper bag full of dog waste. But the steady hands of those two elite wideouts bailed me out week after week. The best wide receivers can produce with the best of the RB crop (especially in PPR leagues), and the injury risk isn't nearly as high.

    What receiving prospect, presumably set to enter the 2016 NFL Draft, are you most excited about? 

    The Bold and the Disputable. Describe one nutty, but completely plausible, prediction at WR/TE for the 2016 season. 

  • Fantasy Flash Forward RBs: DJ has entered top-three territory

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 1 mth ago

    After plenty of blood, sweat and beers, another season is in the books. It's time to reflect on the year that was and look ahead to what's on the horizon for 2016. As any degenerate gamer knows, fantasy football thoughts are always at the forefront. Wednesday's topic: Running back.  

    Every year, new lessons are learned. Subsequently, what New Year's resolution, player specific or in general, will you adhere to at RB in light of experiences gained this past fall? 

    Brandon  – FADING RB EARLY. As it stands, there are only four RBs I'll even consider in Round 1 in '16 drafts - Todd Gurley, David Johnson, Le'Veon Bell and Adrian Peterson. But I'll be specifically targeting Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham and Julio Jones first and foremost. There has never been a time in my fantasy football history where I've even wanted a single WR ahead of any at the RB position.

    Andy  – Whichever Denver running back you think you like on draft day, it's the wrong guy. AVOID. DO NOT DRAFT. 

    What rushing prospect, presumably set to enter the 2016 NFL Draft, are you most excited about?

  • Fantasy Flash Forward QBs: Big Ben, Cam top options in 2016 drafts

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 1 mth ago

    After plenty of blood, sweat and beers, another fantasy season is in the books. It's time to reflect on the year that was and look ahead to what's on the horizon for 2016. As any degenerate gamer knows, fantasy football thoughts are always at the forefront. Monday's topic: Quarterback. 

    Every year, new lessons are learned. Subsequently, what New Year's resolution, player specific or in general, will you adhere to at QB in light of experiences gained this past fall? 

    Brandon  – Middle class of NFL quarterbacks has expanded so much that it makes no sense to draft a QB until the late, late rounds of your draft if you miss out on one of the few difference maker QBs early on - I'd say that elite group constitutes 6-7 signal callers head into '16, depending on how you feel about Andrew Luck. If you don't land one of those guys, you might as well stream the position, playing the match ups as you would with a defense. 

    What passing prospect, presumably set to enter the 2016 NFL Draft, are you most excited about? 

    Liz  – PAXTON LYNCH. Accurate arm. Slick wheels. Baller name.

    List your QB top 16 for '16.
