WASHINGTON

Sometimes choosing between two players of the same position is a difficult task. If they both are near their ADP, of the same talent level, and both on virtually equally talented teams then you need a tie-breaker. Using the FFChamps strength of schedule, or S.O.S., will be your best friend in those situations. Let's take a look at running backs and who have the most favorable match ups all the way down to the toughest coming up in 2014.

*Note: Games in GREEN are opponents who finished in the bottom 10 in fantasy points vs TEs in 2013. RED are opponents who finished top 10 in fantasy points vs TEs in 2013. WHITE are neutral match ups where the opponent finished in the middle 12 in fantasy points vs TEs in 2013. 

1. Eric Ebron/Brandon Pettigrew Detroit Lions

Rookie Eric Ebron comes into the NFL with the easiest schedule for a tight end. He is going to be counted on to be able to take on the middle of the field and make the athletic plays he's capable of. We know Matthew Stafford loves to throw the ball, and new OC Joe Lombardi utilized Jimmy Graham to perfection in New Orleans the last few years. Detroit faces only 2 tough match ups all season with both coming in the first half of the year. The back half of 2014 give Ebron, Pettigrew and the Lions 6 favorable games and 2 neutral in the final 8 after their week 9 bye, including cupcake division matches with Minnesota and Chicago weeks 15 and 16.

2. Zach Ertz/Brent Celek Philadelphia Eagles

Zach Ertz is emerging as a huge sleeper candidate for 2014 and for good reason. He scored 4 touchdown in the final 8 games in 2013 and has looked like the best receiving options for the Eagles thus far in the preseason. He is going to be a red zone threat. He is going to be a threat down the seem between the 20's. He's got the 2nd easiest tight end schedule with just 3 tough matches. All those tough games are over by week 6. The Eagles then get 4 of their 5 favorable match ups from week 8 on including one week 15 against rival Dallas. 8 neutral match ups throughout the year should keep Ertz and Celek fresh and near the top of the tight end fantasy world all season.  

3. Jared Cook/Lance Kendricks St. Louis Rams

Jared Cook is a tight end who is supposed to break out every year and has never fully gotten there. He had a huge week 1 in 2013 with 7 catches for 141 yards and 2 touchdowns. And even though he ended up as the 11th best TE at years end, that week 1 performance accounted for 27% of his entire 2013 production! If Cook can't make big things happen this year with 5 favorable and 7 neutral match ups vs only 4 tough ones, then he will never be an every week tight end option. Week 6 to 12 is when he sees all his unfavorable matches, while he gets the league's worst team at defending the tight end (division rival Arizona) in week 15.

4. Vernon Davis San Francisco 49ers

Davis is a monster at the tight end position and matched his career high of 13 touchdowns in 2013. However he is getting up there in age (30 now) and with the return of Michael Crabtree, Davis will more-than-likely see fewer targets than the 80+ he saw in 2013. Even if he sees a 40 point drop in fantasy production like he did after his other 13 touchdown season, he would still have finished as a top 10 TE at years end last season. Davis get 4 of his 5 tough match up out of the way mid-season from weeks 5 to 10. His only other tough game comes week 16 vs in-state AFC rival San Diego. He does get 3 straight favorable match ups to open up the year, and has 5 straight neutral matches from week 11 to week 15.

5. Dwayne Allen/Coby Fleener Indianapolis Colts

Seeing Dwayne Allen go down last year after only 1 catch was sad. He and Fleener could be a special 2 tight end tandem in the NFL when both healthy. If we do see them both stay on the field for all of 2014 then watch out because the fantasy points will be flying up on the board, especially with this schedule. Just 2 tough match ups come week 5 and 7 then it's a clear path the rest of the year. 6 favorable match ups are split with 3 coming in the first 4 weeks of the year and the last 3 coming between weeks 11 and 16 including a soft Dallas defense championship week. With Andrew Luck throwing them the ball look for Allen and Fleener to have successful season.

6. Levine Toilolo Atlanta Falcons

Future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez finally hung up the cleats for real following 2013 and he will be greatly missed. He was the best tight end in the history of the NFL up to this point and filling those shows is the job of Levine Toilolo. Toilolo may not get a ton of looks just entering his second NFL season and only grabbing 11 balls his rookie year in 2013. He is a HUGE target standing 6'8" so Matt Ryan will be looking for him in the red zone quite often. Toilolo has a nice schedule to get himself more acclimated with the speed of the NFL facing just 5 tough opponents and 4 of those contests come in the first 7 weeks of the season. He gets his final tough game week 16 vs the Saints. His other 11 match ups (3 favorable) come in 2 big stretches between weeks 3 and 6, and again between weeks 10 and 15.

7. Scott Chandler Buffalo Bills

Since becoming the Bills starting tight end in 2011, Chandler has always finished in fantasy limbo. Between that 15-24 spot where he isn't worth using every week, but he will show flashes and have 3-4 weeks a year where he is useful. He does face only 3 tough match ups all year and those are all past him by week 12. He is also the only tight end who has 3 favorable match ups in the playoffs, weeks 14 through 16. You won't draft him, and probably won't use him other than a bye week filler. However, if you have someone like Gronk or any other top tier tight end who may go down late with injury don't sleep on Chandler. There are much worse options out there this year.

8. Adrien Robinson/Larry Donnell New York Giants

Giants tight ends only face 4 tough match ups all season while getting 6 favorable games. 2 tough match ups come weeks 14 and 16. No tight end in New York (Giants or Jets, but more on them later) should be drafted. I really wouldn't trust using a Giants tight end for a bye week filler either. The offense has looked stagnant at best so far this preseason and none of these TEs will need much attention from opposing defenses. Having the 8th easiest schedule is nice, but the lack of talent here isn't worth using them.

9. Jordan Reed/Logan Paulsen Washington Redskins

Reed was on his way to becoming a real star at the tight end spot last year before missing the back end of 2013 with a major concussion. The new Redskins OC, Sean McVay, was promoted from tight end coach so expect him to have a lot of plays drawn up specifically for the 6'3" Reed. Reed also only has to take on 4 tough opponents, with 3 of them out of the way by week 12. He does have a difficult contest week 14 with the Rams, but of his 7 favorable match ups, he gets cupcake division rival Philadelphia championship week. He will be excellent value draft day, and should show major production all of 2014.

10. Travis Kelce/Anthony Fasano Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City is in a situation where they have arguably the best running back in the game in Jamaal Charles, but the rest of the offense is so off and on. Dwayne Bowe was a disappointment last season and has not been consistent his entire career. At the tight end spot they don't have a truly dominant tight end. Kelce showed some speed in the preseason opener with the Bengals, and if he can stay on the field in 2014, he missed his rookie season in 2013 with a knee injury, he could be Alex Smith's go-to. Don't reach in the draft based on that though, Kelce should be available on waivers in virtually every league. He does have 5 tough games, but all will be in the past after week 11. Which means of his 6 favorable match ups, 4 come in the back half of the year. A playoff schedule of 2 neutral matches and 1 favorable could prove to be good if you're in a pinch near the end of the season.

11. Andrew Quarless/Brandon Bostick Green Bay Packers

Sad to see Jermichael Finely basically lose his career to a neck injury last season. Had he been available for 2014 he would be a highly talked about tight end in an elite offense such as the Packers. Neither Quarless nor Bostick impressed in Finley's absence last year to make them a name to draft. Both averaged under 4 points/game. The face 5 favorable opponents in 2014, but do have the tough task of taking on 6 unfavorable matches, including 5 in the first 10 weeks of the year. Neither Quarless nor Bostick should be drafted, but with Aaron Rodgers throwing the ball, one of them could get hot. If they do don't be afraid to stash them on your bench and see where the season takes them. They do get 2 of their 5 favorable games in the playoffs, weeks 14 and 16. 

12. Jimmy Graham New Orleans Saints

Graham is the best tight end in football today. Maybe Gronk can give him a run at the top of the position, but he's about the only one. Graham lost his battle for being paid like a wide receiver and he's going to show the football world in 2014 why he is just as good as the top name wide outs. Graham does face a rough stretch from week 9 to week 15 where he sees all 5 of his unfavorable matches, including weeks 14 and 15. However, he does start the year off with 6 favorable and 2 neutral games, and gets a walk down easy street against the Falcons championship week. He's the first TE off the board for a reason. 

13. Tyler Eifert/Jermaine Gresham Cincinnati Benglas

Both Eifert and Gresham have the skill sets to be dominate tight ends in this league. Eifert is listed as the Bengals top end, but Gresham seems to be the one looked for when there are touchdowns to be scored. After A.J. Green of course. Jermaine has caught at least 4 touchdowns in each of his 4 NFL seasons (all in Cincinnati), while Eifert only grabbed 2 touchdowns his rookie year in 2013. He should be taking a leap forward his sophomore campaign and with the schedule that he faces, it shouldn't be much of a problem. The Bengals don't benefit from many favorable match ups (just 3), but aren't hurt really by tough ones either (just 3 of those as well). 10 neutral match ups should pave the way for vast improvement on both Eifert and Gresham's parts. No tough games after week 11, and 2 neutral match ups weeks 14 and 15 followed by a green square week 16 may make for a sneaky playoff play if one or the other gets hot. 

14. Ladarius Green/Antonio Gates San Diego Chargers

As last year came to a close it seemed as if the tight end torch was being passed in San Diego from Antonio Gates to Ladarius Green. Even though Green finished as the 38th best tight end, and Gates was number 9, Green seemed to be Phillip River's favorite TE target in the closing weeks of the season. Gates only caught 1 touchdown from week 12 on last year, while Green snagged 3 touchdowns in that same time period. A schedule of 7 favorable and 6 unfavorable match ups could make both these men a valuable commodity in the fantasy world in 2014. After Keenan Allen, Green and Gates will be the next 2 receiving options Rivers looks towards. The Chargers see 5 of the 7 easy games in the first 9 weeks of the season, but the final 2 come weeks 14 and 15. If one of these two men get you to championship week were they face a red 49ers team, don't shy away. They got you this far, ride them until the end. 

15. Martellus Bennett Chicago Bears

Once Bennett stepped out of Jason Witten's shadow in Dallas and became a starter he really began to show what he can do. One season in New York with the Giants in 2012 saw Bennett finish as the 12th best tight end reeling in 55 passes for 626 yards and 5 touchdowns. When he arrived in Chicago last year, his touchdowns stayed the same but he increased his catches (65 vs 55) and yardage (759 vs 626). Chicago has one of the scariest offenses in the NFL and Bennett will benefit from the extra coverage both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery will receive this season. He gets 1 more favorable match up than unfavorable (6 vs 5) which bodes well for him. The downside to this equation is that he sees 3 of the 5 tough matches between weeks 13 and 16 including back-to-back rough ones in the semi's and championship week. If Cutler seeks out Bennett frequently don't be afraid to use him no matter who is standing across from him on the line. 

16. Jason Witten Dallas Cowboys

Mr. Consistence. Jason Witten is the model of being consistant and that is what all great fantasy football players look for at every position. At least 64 catches every year outside of his rookie season in 2003, including 90+ receptions in 3 of the last 5 years. He's also averaged 6 touchdowns and just under 1,000 yards per season over the last 4 years. While he does see 6 tough match ups and just 3 favorable contests, he gets 5 of those 6 bad games out of the way in the first 6 weeks of the season. His playoff schedule starts off with a rough match week 14, but he gets a favorable game week 15, and a neutral match up week 16. HIs ADP in round 7 is a steal for such consistence. Draft him. Use him. Love him.

17. Charles Clay Miami Dolphins

Clay is a guy who lined up all over the field in 2013. From the tight end slot, to wide out, to in the backfield, Clay showed opposing defenses a little of everything. New OC Bill Lazor is lining up Mike Wallace all over this year, so just imagine the scheming he can concoct with someone as versatile as Clay. Miami faces 8 favorable opponents compared to 6 unfavorable. The front half of the schedule is a mix bag of match ups, but the second half is hills and valleys. 3 straight tough games starting week 9, followed by 2 favorable. Another toughy then 3 straight easy games to close out 2014. Clay will be a sleeper selection and having cupcakes weeks 15 and 16 may make him a great late round pick up.

18. Tim Wright/Brandon Myers Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay may have the biggest targets for their quarterback to throw too. Wide receivers Jackson and Evans stand 6'6" and 6'5" while tight ends Tim Wright and Brandon Myers are both 6'4". Even rookie 3rd string tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a beast at 6'6". While size isn't the issue for the Buccaneers tight ends, the schedule may be. They face only 2 favorable opponents while having to take on 6 unfavorable foes. Both easy games come midseason between weeks 8 and 12. The front half of the year has 3 tough games in the first 6 weeks, much like the back end which is 3 more tough matches in the final 5 weeks. Most leagues won't see these 2 tight ends drafted, and while they do have the ability to help you at the position during the heavy period of bye weeks, don't trust them come playoff time. 

19. Jace Amaro/Jeff Cumberland New York Jets

 The second team from the Big Apple faces even bigger challenges than it's NFC counterpart. Jace Amaro is a promising rookie, who very well could become Geno Smith's favorite target much like Jeff Cumberland was last season. Cumberland caught 4 touchdowns, which was 33% of all of Smith's TD tosses in 2013. The Jets are a run first team, which brings down the value of the TEs just a little. Their schedule though sees only 5 tough match ups and 8 favorable contests. They get 4 of the 5 tough games out the way in the first 9 weeks of the season, and the playoffs give them 3 straight favorable match ups. If one of these two guys gets the hot hand and is Geno's first look outside of Eric Decker then play them with confidence. 

20. Delanie Walker Tennessee Titans

Walker finished as a top 12 tight end in 2013 and that was with inconsistent quarterback play and not even really a good quarterback throwing to him. Jake Locker has lofty expectations for 2014, and Walker could end up being his best friend. Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter are coming into their own as wide receivers and that should leave the middle of the field available for patrol by Walker. He also set himself the goal of catching 80 passes this season. He caught 60 in 2013 and if he keeps last year's pace, with an additional 20 catches he would score 2 more touchdowns and add 190 yards to his 571. Those stats would stick him well inside the top 10 TEs. He only sees 1 tough match up, week 3 at Cincinnati, but 4 favorable match ups over the course of 2014 including championship week should make Walker a surprise candidate for top 8 tight ends come seasons end. Another gem to be drafted late.

21. Dennis Pitta/Owen Daniels Baltimore Ravens

Another new OC in the league, Gary Kubiak will greatly help Pitta and Daniels. While in Houston as the head coach, Kubiak loved targeting Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham (more on him later) as well. Pitta is Joe Flacco's go-to guy in the red zone, and although Dennis only played in 4 games because of a hip injury, he still made an immediate impact catching 20 balls for 169 yards and a touchdown over that 4 game span. He faces 6 unfavorable matches and just 4 favorable ones, but he gets 1 favorable week 15 and championship week is a neutral game. Pitta should put up good numbers in this offense.

22. Kyle Rudolph Minnesota Vikings

Norv Turner is now the OC in Minnesota and Kyle Rudolph looks to be the next tight end in that elite category by learning under Turner. Rudolph was on pace for career highs in recpetions and yardage in 2013 before missing the second half of the year with a foot injury. Rudolph has 5 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in 2 preseason games of work. The Rudolph/Turner marriage should be a very fruitful one. Rudolph only gets 4 favorable match ups and 7 tough ones, but he has the skill set and ability to overcome the rough weeks. While he does have a tough week 16 match up, he gets 2 neutral games weeks 14 and 15 to open up the fantasy playoffs.

23. Rob Gronkowski New England Patriots

Gronkowski could be the 33rd ranked tight end and he would still be a top 3-4 tight end off draft boards. We all saw what he can do when healthy, like put up 17 touchdowns in 2011, the most any tight end has scored in the history of the NFL in a season. He averages just under 11 touchdowns a season over his 4 years in New England and that is with him missing a combined 14 games over that span. He does have an equal number of favorable and unfavorable match ups, 5 a piece, with 1 of each coming in the playoffs (a favorable week 14 and tough week 15). His championship week is a neutral game, but just like Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas, you draft Gronk to play every week he is healthy, and when healthy he can give Graham a run as top tight end in the league.

24. Mychal Rivera Oakland Raiders

Rivera came onto the scene last year as a rookie scoring 4 touchdowns behind 407 yards and 38 receptions. He accumulated 3 of those 4 touchdowns and 211 yards in the final 7 games of 2013.  With the Raiders having a problem at quarterback no matter who the starter is, Rivera should see a lot of looks as the safety valve. Of his 6 favorable match ups, 4 come in the first 7 weeks of the season. Unfortunately 6 of his 7 unfavorable match ups come in an unbelievably difficult 6 straight games from week 11 through week 16. Every playoff game is in the red. Not a good sign for Rivera or you if you need to rely on him for any extended period of time.

25. Heath Miller Pittsburgh Steelers

MIller had his best season in 2012 catching a career high 8 touchdowns and gaining 816 yards, another career high. He tore his ACL at seasons end and just a shell of his reliable self in 2013. Catching only 1 touchdown and not posting a single double-digit point game. Miller has only finished as atop 12 TE just 3 times in his 9 year career. The other 6 seasons he finished outside the top 15 in 5 of them. Pittsburgh has a brutal schedule with 7 tough match ups and just 3 soft ones. From week 8 until the end of the season, Miller faces 6 of his 7 unfavorable matches and gets 2 of his favorable in that stretch. He faces 2 tough games in the playoffs weeks 14 and 16. He may serve a purpose for a bye week but don't rely on him to help bring you a championship with the difficult road ahead.

26. Marcedes Lewis Jacksonville Jaguars

Lewis had a subpurb 2010 with 700 yards and 10 touchdowns and seemed to be on his way to becoming a great tight end. Since then he has combined for 8 touchdowns the past 3 seasons and has only been over 500 yards receiving just 1 of those 3 years. If Blake Bortles starts at some point in the year then Lewis should see his value increase. Bortles is a better quarterback than Henne already, and a big tight end (Lewis stands 6'6") is a rookie quarterbacks best friend. 

27. Garrett Graham/Ryan Griffin Houston Texans

Graham played very well in 2013. He scored a touchdown in his first 3 games, all with Owen Daniels still being healthy. Once Daniels went down and missed the final 11 games, Graham played well scoring 2 more more touchdowns in his 8 starts before subcoming to injuries to end his 2013 as well. In a new offense with a new quarterback and aging and injury prone stars at wide receiver and running back, don't be shocked to see Graham get a lot of looks from Ryan Fitzpatrick. New coach Bill O'Brien was the OC in New England when Rob Gronkowski scored his 17 touchdowns, so he knows how valuable a tight end is and what to do with them. The Texans get 5 easy games vs just 3 tough ones. Their playoff schedule is lead off by a favorable game week 14 followed by 2 neutral games weeks 15 and 16. You may not use Graham as an every week starter, but if you play the match ups properly he could pay dividends to your squad in 2014.

28. Zach Miller Seattle Seahawks

Miller is a bye week fill-in if anything. He scored 5 touchdowns last year with 4 of those coming in Seattle in front of the 12th man. He faces 6 tough match ups in 2014. 4 of those come in the heated NFC west and 3 of those 6 come from week 13 til the end of the season. HE gets 5 of his 6 easy match ups in the first 9 weeks of the season. You may use him as a bye week fill in, but only if he's at home or if he's a last resort. Even with Seattle having a capable offense, MIller doesn't see much production.   

29. Jordan Cameron Cleveland Browns

Last year Cameron came on like a rocket en route to finishing as a top 4 tight end. Norv Turner is credited with turning Cameron into the beast he was and that definitely factored in. No Josh Gordon on the outside is a blessing and a curse for Cameron. On the downside, defenses can key in on Jordan seeing he is the only real threat in the passing game for Cleveland at this point. The bright side is he should see a big increase in targets from 2013 where he saw 109 passes thrown his way. He faces 4 favorable match ups, but they all come between weeks 7 and 12. His 6 tough games are scattered throughout the year including back-to-back tough ones weeks 15 and 16.  

30. Greg Olsen Carolina Panthers

Olsen is in a rough boat this season. Kelvin Benjamin seems to be the only wide out that will draw coverage away from Olsen. The Panthers run game is a scary thought and if Cam Newton's ankle issue flares up at some point just forget about this whole offense. Olsen also only gets just 2 favorbale match ups all season (weeks 5 and 13) while he faces 5 tough matches including a week 14 tilt with New Orleans. If Newton stays healthy, even with the tough schedule, Olsen will be looked at early and often as the only target Newton is fimiliar with and has a trust in.  

31. Julius Thomas Denver Broncos

Based on Denver's schedule every single position sees a near-the-bottom ranking in strength of schedule. It should not deter you from grabbing any Broncos including Julius Thomas. Sure he only has 4 favorable match ups vs 6 unfavorable, but it isn't going to stop you from making him the 2nd or 3rd tight end off the board. It's not going to stop him from being any every week starter. Thomas' playoff schedule sees a favorbale game week 15 stuck between two tough ones weeks 14 and 16. Again draft and play him with confidence weekly.

32. John Carlson Arizona Cardinals

Carlson started off his career stong in Seattle combining for 12 touchdown in his first 2 seasons in the Pacific Northwest. Since then he has put up 2 touchdowns in the last 4 years. He is listed as the Cardinals number 1 tight end but I can't imagine him ending the season there. Arizona drafted Troy Niklas out of Notre Dame and if he can be a quick study I can see him taking the role of top tight end in the desert by the end of 2014. No matter who is head of the depth chart in Arizona, with 6 favorable and 6 unfavorable match ups it won't matter much. None of the Cardinals TEs should be drafted and only used in a really tough spot betwwen weeks 5 and 9 when they see all favorable and neutral match ups.

Sometimes choosing between two players of the same position is a difficult task. If they both are near their ADP, of the same talent level, and both on virtually equally talented teams then you need a tie-breaker. Using the FFChamps strength of schedule, or S.O.S., will be your best friend in those situations. Let's take a look at wide receivers who have the most favorable match ups all the way down to the toughest coming up in 2014.

 

*Note: Games in GREEN are opponents who finished in the bottom 10 in fantasy points vs WRs in 2013. RED are opponents who finished top 10 in fantasy points vs WRs in 2013. WHITE are neutral match ups where the opponent finished in the middle 12 in fantasy points vs WRs in 2013.

NFL Preseason Week 2: Fantasy Football What To Watch For

Posted on August 14, 2014 by Bill Enright

Week 1 in the NFL is rapidly approaching but we're still a few weeks away and right in the thick of Preseason and Training Camp. All 32 teams are in action this weekend starting with Thursday night and continuing through Monday for Week 2 of the Preseason. While it is just the Preaseason and we don't OVER-THINK everything we see, Preseason games are still a good research tool for Fantasy Football. NOTE: All game time are EST.

2014 Fantasy Football Quarterback Busts

Posted on August 14, 2014 by Bill Enright

The depth at Quarterback in 2014 is unreal. The NFL is a passing league and we preach to all our members the importance of waiting on a QB (unless in a 2 QB league). Passers like Philip Rivers and Andy Dalton both finished in the Top 8 at the position in 2013, but neither were picked within the Top 12 at the position. So when it comes to busts at the QB position, it’s less about their production and more about their ADP and how their production won’t match where they are picked.

Cam Newton, Panthers: There's no questioning what Killa Cam can do with the ball in his hands. His athleticism make this dual threat QB one of the NFL's most promising talents. BUT and this is a big "BUT" his wide receiving corps may be one of the worst in the NFL. Steve Smith was handed his walking papers, Brandon LaFell is off to play in New England, which leaves tight end Greg Olsen and veterans Jason Avant and Jerricho Cotchery as the only playmakers with NFL experience. Carolina used their 1st Round Draft Pick to select Florida State's Kelvin Benajmin who should be a monster in the Red Zone but is still a bit raw in his route running. The lack of weapons in the passing game will stunt Newton's production...but as previously stated, luckily he can still make plays with his feet.

2014 Fantasy Football BIG Sleeper List: Wide Receivers

Posted on August 13, 2014 by Bill Enright

This is the FFChamps 2014 edition of the “Wide Receiver Big Sleeper List.” We'll continue to add to this list throughout the month of August as more trends develop during the the 2nd and 3rd games of Preseason action, particularly the Long Shot group of players. But this list is based on all we've gathered from last year's performances,offseason acquisitions, and of course OTA, Minicamp and Training Camp reports. 

“Sleeper” could be the most overused word in Fantasy Football. That being said we all love to hear it. We look at the word as basically meaning "guys we want to get on our teams.”

Our sleepers have been broken down into three categories for easy referencing:

Our Guys, Undervalued, and  Long Shots

What do these terms mean?

Our Guys: It's unlikely you'll find any other “experts” ranking these players as high as we have on our Cheat-sheets, hence their placement in this group, so let “our guys” become “your guys.”

Undervalued:Whether their projected production outweighs their current ADP or they have simply become an afterthought for Fantasy Football managers, these undervalued WRs are better than the credit most managers give them. Target them in the mid-to-late rounds and get tremendous production without having to spend a top round pick.

Long Shots: The skill is there. The potential is there. The opportunity for a lot of targets is there. But injuries, bad luck, old age, depth chart situation or simply just being a rookie are some of the factors that make the following WRs our Long Shots.
