When is the right time to smash the panic button in a fantasy football league? If you're staring down an 0-2 start, it might feel like now is that right time. In many instances, that won't necessarily be the case. In others, however, panic just might be the appropriate reaction. Beller, Jake and Funston break out the panic meter on this episode of …
 
Beller and DVR take an early look at the players that will likely be among the most popular players on the waiver wire heading into Week 3. Shallow league managers should be taking a look at Michael Carter, Zack Moss and Darnell Mooney, while deep leaguers will be more focused on the likes of Henry Ruggs and DeVante Parker. Could Parker also have v…
 
Beller and DVR take a look at the Week 2 DFS main slate, focusing first on the highest totals on the board. Do you have to find exposure to Cowboys-Chargers? Are there better angles to play in Vikings-Cardinals or Titans-Seahawks? The guys also look beyond those high totals for games they want to target, including Saints-Panthers. They also discuss…

And who will join them in the 2021 Surprise Standout Club this week? Beller, Jake and Funston dig into those questions on this episode of The Athletic Fantasy Football Podcast. Among the 30-plu…
 
Week 1 was a relatively quiet one on the Survivor front, with the Jaguars the only semi-popular pick that went down. Week 2 looks like it could be a comfortable one, too, with three double-digit favorites on the board, all of whom happen to be considered Super Bowl contenders (even though one of them struggled mightily in Week 1). Beller and DVR sa…
 
Nando, Chris and Brandon discuss the approach to Elijah Mitchell as a Week 1 standout commanding large bids and top waiver-wire priority, how they are reacting (and overreacting) to Week 1 — including the role of Corey Davis with the Jets, regrets in the Elijah Moore v. Mike Williams decision, the strong showing of several rookies in their debuts, …

Every Wednesday evening, Michael Beller and Derek VanRiper will bring you strategies to help you survive and advance in your survivor pools.

The biggest piece of news emanating from Week 3 of the preseason is also the worst. J.K. Dobbins tore his ACL and will miss the 2021 NFL season.

It's not often that a trade happens, and the player who's on the move is the least interesting player involved in the deal. So hey, Sony Michel is an outlier! What does the Michel trade mean for Darrell Henderson and Damien Harris? What does Travis Etienne's injury mean for James Robinson and the Jags receivers? Is it time to back off D'Andre Swift…
 
Nando, Chris and Brandon discuss the strategies they employ while building out the bottom half of their rosters including how to execute Zero RB, waiting on a quarterback, and balancing ‘boring’ veterans with upside selections.

The second week of the preseason is in the books, and it was just as eventful as the first from a fantasy football perspective.

The first week of the NFL preseason is in the books, and while no one wants to overreact to anything we saw this past weekend, there are still things we can properly react to.

By now, you've likely heard the spooky tales of the RB Dead Zone, a Bermuda Triangle type area that hangs over the third through sixth rounds of 12-team drafts.
