  • Better link to join free Discord
    22 Sep 2021 • < 1 min read • 7 0
    Quick note that I’ve changed the link to the free Discord tier in the previous post that was causing some issues. That’s been updated there, and you can also find the other link right here. Hopefully ...
  • Discord is ready! Instructions for signing up

    The Discord is ready! For those of you unfamiliar with Discord, it’s a messaging service, not unlike Slack or any other internet chat service. I’m a mid-30s dad who had resisted joining and being acti...
  • Stealing Signals, Week 2, Part 2
    21 Sep 2021 • < 1 min read • 19 13
    The late Sunday games and Sunday Night Football gave us much more from a fantasy perspective than the early games, with the only game totaling fewer than 60 points being the one everyone expected to s...
  • Stealing Signals, Week 2, Part 1
    21 Sep 2021 • < 1 min read • 21 21
    Week 2 is always a reminder how much can vary week to week in the NFL, because it’s the first time we have two different weeks to compare. I’m pretty sure this year’s Week 2 was even crazier than prio...
  • Stealing Signals, Week 1, Part 2

    Man, yesterday was wild. Week 1 is always a bit of a journey to pull in the data sources I want to use, but I had to go back to good ol’ hand-counting play-by-play logs in some cases because some of m...

    I am so, so excited to be back writing this for you. I mean, check back in Week 12 and I’m sure I’ll be worn down. But holy shit, Week 1 was fun. We knew we wouldn’t get everything right, but we got a...
  • In-season preview
    12 Sep 2021 • 7 min read • 11 6
    I’m so damn excited for tomorrow, and I hope you all are, too. It was an incredibly fun draft season, even if I never did get that elusive 1.01 across nearly 20 higher-stakes contests, and only got th...
  • Good luck in your Labor Day drafts!
    06 Sep 2021 • 1 min read • 9 7
    I’ve finished up a rankings sweep after testing them in three main event drafts this weekend, which helped me clean up some things. I moved up a few wide receivers I’m a bit down on to reflect where I...
  • A more Zero RB main event
    05 Sep 2021 • < 1 min read • 8 9
    Well, we tried again, and this time we got the 1.10, so it wasn’t the 1.09 or the 1.11 like the two boards I sent out yesterday. What’s particularly funny is some of the types of values we would have ...
  • High stakes draft results, 9/3 and 9/4
    04 Sep 2021 • < 1 min read • 10 14
    Got a request to share the draft board from a Friday morning draft, and also did one Saturday morning, both with my Stealing Bananas co-host Shawn Siegele. We’ll have full breakdowns of our thoughts a...
