Why You Should Ditch Average Fantasy Apps for ThriveFantasy

By: Braeden Long Draft Kings and FanDuel have an implemented plan that draws the average player to play in DFS games with high hopes of getting rich.  Sure, it’s more fun to watch sports when there’s money on the line, but how confident are you picking a perfect lineup to get dough?

2018 Season Preview – Tight Ends

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst Tight End can often be overlooked when drafting your fantasy team but getting consistent points out of your Tight End position can be the key to taking home the trophy at the end of the year. The Tight Ends will be ranked in tiers for this installment of you Sweet Fantasy. Tier 1 1. Travis Kelce - Chiefs 2. Rob Gronkowski - Patriots That's the first tier at least for this year. I prefer Kelce due to Gronkowski's injury issues over the years. If you draft either of these guys it is the equivalent of starting a WR1 or WR2 at your Tight End spot every week.

Sweet Fantasy – 69 Things from Week 12

Chris Sweet - Senior Fantasy Analyst: The Wagner Wire I hope everyone had a great Holiday Weekend full of food, football, and family. It is now one of the most important weeks of the Fantasy Football Season. Week 13 is the last week of the regular season in many leagues so those Byes and last playoffs spots are on the line. Without further ado here are 69 things I took away from Week 12.   The Dallas Cowboys and any Fantasy owners of theirs sure miss Ezekiel Elliott. The offense is just completely out of synch.
