Philaelphia Eagles 2015 Preview

With its leading rusher and receiver gone via trade and free agency respectively, and the 2014 Week 1 starter dealt as well, the 2015 Eagles certainly look much different than they did at the close of the 2014 season. Still, they likely won’t operate much differently. At least, they’ll continue to run among the highest number of plays in the league… that means lots of opportunities for the remaining parties on offense, and plenty of fantasy intrigue.

Buffalo Bills 2015 Preview

LeSean McCoy's arrival is the big story, but, if that causes the rest of the your draft to sleep on Sammy Watkins, there is value to be had (Photo: Jared Wickerham/Getty Images North America).

There are lots of changes for Buffalo this year, notably a new front man in HC Rex Ryan and LeSean McCoy a top the RB depth chart. One thing that remains the same: we don’t know going into the season what they’ll get from the QB position… a situation that Ryan has been familiar with in his tenure as an NFL head coach. He’s also failed in his attempts to develop them, so that job likely falls to OC Greg Roman, who joins the Bills via San Francisco.

Kansas City Chiefs 2015 Preview

The discussion on the chiefs 2014 season from an offensive standpoint has centered, justifiably, around their woeful lack of production from the receiving corps. They’re hoping to change that in 2015 however, with the acquisition of Jeremy Maclin who excelled for the Eagles last season. Beyond the receivers, KC actually has some players to boast about, including a two who should be in the top-5 at their positions: mainstay Jamaal Charles and the up and coming Travis Kelce.

San Francisco 49ers 2015 Preview

The 49ers identity is set to change, with an internal power struggle leading to the ouster of Jim Harbaugh and the appointment as long time Defensive Coordinator Jim Tomsula as his successor. The 49ers will bring a new approach to the table in 2015, and they’ll be doing so without a couple of fixtures on offense – namely Frank Gore, and Michael Crabtree, who were unsigned and departed in free agency.

MLB Daily Fantasy Robopick: Carlos Beltran

Carlos Beltran should keep his strong recent play rolling against the Phillies (Photo: Jim McIsaac/Getty Images North America).

The case is fairly straightforward. Beltran has reached base in eight straight starts, with extra base hits in four of those games (six total) and 11 combined runs and RBI in that span, comes cheap, and will face RHP Sean O’Sullivan.

Houston Texans 2015 Preview: Post Draft Offseason Wrap

A hostile offseason turned to the departure of one of the franchise’s founding fathers in Andre Johnson, and the Texans remain without a clear cut starting QB. Still, there remains a degree of enthusiasm around the passing game in their second year with Bill O’Brien and the offense as a whole could offer some significant sources of fantasy productio

Week 12 Two Start Pitchers; Ervin Santana Stash?

Everyone remember Ervin Santana? You know, the guy who signed a $55 million dollar contract in the offseason and then was suspended for PED use. Well, he’s eligible to return July 4th and he made his first start at Triple-A Rochester over the weekend.

MLB Daily Fantasy Robopick: Alex Gordon

Today looks like a celebratin' kind of day for Alex Gordon and the Royals (Photo: Ed Zurga/Getty Images North America).

Over the course of the 2015 fantasy baseball season, I’ve been working with Matthew Boland, a PhD student in Finance, on a daily fantasy sports strategy. With a little bit of economic theory, and a degree of baseball intuition we’ve come up with a formula that helps us put together winning daily fantasy baseball lineups. …
