2018 Top 10 Fantasy Football Running Backs

Adam Wagner - Senior Analyst: The Wagner Wire The 2018 NFL season is upon us, so that means we need to be entrenched in as much fantasy football news as possible. This installment will cover the top 10 NFL running backs for fantasy football in 2018. The list was generated based on a points per reception (PPR) league format.   #10 Leonard Fournette - JAX There were several questions regarding Leonard Fournette’s fitness and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield last season. In his rookie campaign Fournette toted the rock 268 times for 1,040 yards, crossing the goal line 9 times. He also caught 36 of his 48 targets from Blake Bortles, stacking up 302 yards receiving yards and one touchdown. 

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 5

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire Week 5 is in the books so here are 70-1 things I took away from it. Ben Roethlisberger is playing like he did retire after last year. The only Steelers players you can start right now are Antonio Brown and Le'veon Bell. Joe Mixon is getting the carries now but his 2.8 ypc needs to improve if he is going to break out. The Bengals offense is starting to look better. AJ Green is the Elite WR nobody talks about. He is on pace for over 1600 yards receiving. Joe Flacco shouldn't be owned in many fantasy leagues. It's hard to trust any Ravens WR on any given week. Buck Allen is

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things about Week 3

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire It's time again for a 69 pack of thoughts, musings, facts, and anecdotes from your Sweet Fantasy. The Patriots D is going to force Tom Brady to throw a lot this year. Brandin Cooks showed what kind of an impact he can have last week. He is still going to be frustrating to own week to week. Deshaun Watson is going to have some big fantasy weeks in this league. Is it just me or does D'onta Foreman already look like the best RB on the Texans? Jared Goff and the Rams offense looked amazing against the 49ers. If they can have a similar game against the Cowboys it will be time

Wagner Wisdom: Top DFS Performers – NFL Playoffs (Wild Card)

Adam Wagner - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire   The NFL Playoffs are upon us. Congratulations to those of you whose teams were fortunate to achieve a post-season reservation and my condolences to those of you with teams that weren't as fortunate. Regardless, we all have daily fantasy sports to compete in. The slate of games has reduced, making your decision of who to roster more critical. With the exception of Pittsburg, the defenses that these players will encounter are legitimately tough. The Steelers can still get after the quarterback, although they allow 271 yards/game through the air. With Andy Dalton's status uncertain, the Steelers might be able to sustain and repel an otherwise dangerous Bengals' offense. That being said, should you

Just The Tip – NFL Top Running Backs For DFS: DraftKings

Degenerates, Week 17 is here! As the regular season comes to a end, your DFS roster may face some challenges. Some teams will play "back ups" this week as an audition for next year.

Let's take a look at the RB position and analyze which players you need in your DFS lineup. DeAngelo Williams/DK $7100 Williams has been a huge suprise for the Steelers this season. The Steeler workhorse has racked up at least 110 total yards 7 times this season while only starting 8 games. This week Pittsburgh is visiting Cleveland. The

Just The Tip – $ Holiday Cash $

David Zidek - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Degenerates, Week 15 was awesome! Cam's huge day, Antonio Brown's dismantling of the Bronco's stingy D, and some WWF action on the football field. With Week 16 starting on Christmas Eve, is your DFS lineup ready to make some holiday CASH? I had a MONSTER week 15! Let's look at some players that could help you get back some cash from your holiday spending. Denard Robinson - $5400 DK/$5,200 FantasyHub Last week, Robinson played on every offensive snap. He didn't have a huge day, but he did put up over 15 points. With Yeldon still sporting a knee brace, it looks like Robinson will be the workhorse again. This week the Jags get the Saints, who
