Fantasy-Football-Links-Offseason---Icon-Sportswire

In the Fantasy Football world, most website owners are relatively friendly with each other, and many are incredibly helpful. For the most part, Fantasy website owners and Fantasy writers are an awful friendly group, with a few exceptions, of course. (Some day, I’ll write a fun book calling out the douchebags – which in turn, would make me a douchebag! It’s like saying, “Don’t think about elephants!”)

So we have a Fantasy Football website alliance right now – we would do awesome on “Survivor!”), where we find some really great/interesting articles on our Fantasy-friendly websites, and we share them with you!

The idea is that we help each other by helping readers find great new content. And there’s one thing that’s an absolute certain during the summer – Fantasy Football players can never get enough content! They devour it! They crave it! They demand it! (OK, so maybe I’m overestimating how much new content readers want, but I do know they want variety!)

7 Fantasy Football Links We Think You’ll Enjoy This Week!

My hopes are that we’re introducing you to a few Fantasy Football websites you might not have known about – and to help you crush your Fantasy Football league opponents this year! (You can do some Free Fantasy Football Mock Drafts to do that, too!)

7 Veteran Players That Will Be Overlooked For Rookies In 2017

By Andrew Erickson of GridironExperts.com

Great piece on veteran players that are probably going to get bypassed in your Fantasy Football drafts for a bigger-named rookie. Erickson notes that this is a huge mistake.

“In the past three seasons at both the running back and wide receiver positions, only seven rookies cracked the top 24 at each position in standard Fantasy scoring.” – Erickson

Stellar, well-thought-out article with graphs and everything! I love graphs.

Should I Draft Corey Davis?

By Jack Delaney of SoCalledFantasyExperts.com

Delaney profiles the hottest rookie wide receiver coming out of the 2017 NFL Draft to spot just exactly where Davis’ Fantasy value lies at the start of summer. I love his takes on why Davis is being drafted so late in mock drafts right now.

Is Cameron Meredith Worth Targeting?

By Keith Lott of WeTalkFantasySports.com

If you want Cam Meredith on your PPR Fantasy team, it looks like you’ll have to draft him before Round 10, according to FantasyFootballCalculator.com’s ADP.  Lott makes a very good argument for drafting one of the least sexy picks in the past couple seasons.

Smokey Brown Comes Smokin’ Back

By Richard Savill of FantasySixPack.net

RB Tevin Coleman, DT Geno Atkins and WR John “Smokey” Brown all dealt with something called, “sickle cell trait,” which might have inhibited the Cardinals wide receivers play at times in 2016, along with a cyst on his spine. This is a great look at what we might be able to expect from the Cardinals’ great depth at wide receiver.

5 Reasons Why You Should Draft Josh Gordon in Round 16 of Your Fantasy Football Leagues

By David Gonos of DavidGonos.com

Hey, that Gonos guy is awesome — and schizophrenic! With Josh Gordon’s recent NFL reinstatement denial, it would be easy to completely discard him in all of your cheat sheets. But Gonos explains a handful of reasons why he’s worth drafting with your last pick of the draft.

Post-Draft 2017 Fantasy Football Rankings

By Jake Ciely of RotoExperts.com

Ciely pegged Ezekiel Elliott as a top-five Fantasy running back within minutes of the Cowboys drafting the Ohio State product last spring. So Ciely gets my benefit of the doubt until he screws up! Here are his mid-May 2017 Fantasy rankings with some awesome Fantasy nuggets at each position.

” I am going to keep driving this point home, but Howard finished as RB9 last year despite not starting as the team’s lead option and John Fox screwing around with him until midseason. Fournette is the superior talent, and the Jaguars didn’t draft him at No. 4 to have Fournette play in a timeshare… Mixon was the best talent in the draft, the Bengals tried to trade Hill and Bernard can’t stay healthy. Believe!” – Ciely

Stock Watch Following the NFL Draft

By Garion Thorne, Chris Meaney and  Corey Parson of FNTSY.com

Finally, here’s a video from our friends at FNTSY.com (they’re horrible at spelling) that touches on several topics, including whether or not third-year starting QBs Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston should now be considered QB1s in Fantasy Football.

Let @DavidGonos know what you think about this weekly linkdump we plan for your Fantasy Football-playin’ pleasure!
