Have you ever wanted to go head-to-head against a fantasy football expert in a season-long league?
Rotowire has teamed up with Fantrax this fantasy football season to give our users the opportunity to play against the fantasy pros.
Jordy Nelson’s torn ACL last preseason was a massive blow to fantasy owners unlucky enough to have selected him in the first or second round. Of course, the Packers weren’t thrilled either. There haven’t been any such shakeups involving top-end wide receivers since training camp opened in 2016. Those who drafted early this year are fine with that.
With a pair of dominant performances in the books this preseason, Dez Bryant won’t be on the field for the Cowboys third preseason game after suffering a concussion during Monday’s practice. It’s never wise to speculate about a player returning from a head injury, but the superstar has almost three weeks to recover in order to be on the field in Week 1. Unless additional negative news arises in the near future, he’s a great value at his current ADP of 12.
Good news for John Brown, and not so good news for Dion Lewis highlight the training camp notes for Sunday.
Matt Jones left Friday’s preseason game against the Jets with a slight separation on his left AC joint, and the shoulder injury will cause him to miss some time, though head coach Jay Gruden is hopeful that he’ll have his lead running back on the field soon. As long as there aren’t any complications, is reasonable to expect that he’ll be ready for Week 1, which gives him 21 days to recover. His current ADP is 66, and with Jones expected to have a sizable work load for Washington, he remains a solid target for fantasy teams that loaded up on wide receivers early in drafts.
There should be a ton of movement with draft positions as hype and story lines build through week 2 of the preseason schedule this weekend. Before I start looking who is losing and gaining momentum, I want to see where the rookie class is slotting in fantasy drafts.
The long running theme with 2016 rookies, Ezekiel Elliott aside, is that the class is underwhelming and not as talented as 2014 and 2015. That theme is very much playing out in current ADP. It’s telling that Kevin White, who only this week suited up for the first time since being drafted last season, would rank second if you count him as a rookie with an ADP of 72.5.
