Get the Rotoworld Draft GuideSunday, August 09, 2015
There are a lot of fantasy websites out there that turn their football radar off after Week 17 and don’t turn it back on until training camp. That’s not our style. We've spent the offseason blurbing every development, and preparing for the season at hand.
We live and breathe football news 24/7 for the entire year, meaning no one knows more about every single player in the league. We’ve been all over scheme shifts, free agency, the draft and offseason practices – constantly thinking about how these changes will be reflected in 2015's box scores.
In a game where information is the key to success, we’ve cornered the market.
By digesting the 2015 Draft Guide, you’ll know everything we know. We have standard, half-PPR, full-PPR, Dynasty and Auction rankings. We have tiers, projections, ADP reports, positional strength of schedule and subscriber-only chats. Evan Silva takes you through his sleepers and busts, Adam Levitan breaks down the notable injuries and Patrick Daugherty evaluates the faces in new places. We have an introduction to DFS from Nick Mensio, and in-depth injury analysis from Sports Injury Predictor. To start, we have three mock drafts, with more on the way weekly. Columns will be routinely added as Week 1 draws closer.
The crown jewel of the Draft Guide remains our extensive player profiles, of which there are over 500. We put a ton of time into each, from Eddie Lacy to Teddy Bridgewater. An example:
2014: Big Ben has quietly played the best football of his career on controversial OC Todd Haley's watch. His game reached new heights in 2014 as the Steelers surrounded him with playmaking weapons and got the best line play they've had in years. Roethlisberger established career highs in completion rate and TD-to-INT ratio while leading the NFL in passing yards, obliterating his preseason ADP en route to a top-five fantasy quarterback finish. 27-year-old Antonio Brown is squarely in his prime, while Martavis Bryant (23), Le'Veon Bell (23) and Markus Wheaton (24) are still in the process of getting better.
What's Changed: Pittsburgh's offensive line returns fully intact. The Steelers' early-season running game may be nonexistent with Le'Veon on suspension, forcing more emphasis onto Pittsburgh's passing attack. GM Kevin Colbert got Big Ben yet another weapon in the draft, selecting muscle-bound speedster Sammie Coates in round three.
Outlook: Roethlisberger's floor should be a mid-range QB1, while he will offer top-three quarterback upside surrounded by top-shelf targets in Pittsburgh's pass-based offense.
