Dave Richard's 2018 Fantasy Football positional tiers have been revealed by CBS Sports Staff 23h ago • 2 min read There are many different ways to draft your Fantasy Football team. You can snag an elite quarterback like Aaron Rodgers with your first pick. Or you can draft a star running back in the fantasy football rankings like Le'Veon Bell and then pick up a mid-tier quarterback later. However, if you want to win your league, there's a method to the madness.

Now that the NFL draft is complete, a ranking of the top rookies for fantasy football this season beckons. Don't expect projections for any of the quarterbacks, as none of the rookie signal callers appear worthy of a top 20-25 spot for 2018. But there is opportunity for several first-year players at other position to deliver for fantasy leagues. 1. Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants: He'll be gone by the end of the third round. Don't be surprised if he's nabbed in the mid to late second round. Barkley is a low-end RB1 whose value is stronger in PPR leagues. Expect Barkley to hit 1,500 yards from scrimmage and 8-10 TDs. 2. Derrius Guice, RB, Redskins: First-round talent at a third-round cost, Guice is a vicious combination of speed and power that will scatter the crowded backfield in Washington. He's a motivated workhorse who makes a solid RB2 that will be gone between the fifth and sixth rounds. 3. Royce Freeman, RB, Broncos: Like Barkley and Guice, Freeman should walk into the … [Read more...] about FANTASY PLAYS: Top NFL rookies; Guerrero’s MLB outlook
Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard join Will Brinson on the Pick Six Podcast to break down the draft from a fantasy perspective by Will Brinson @WillBrinson 32s ago • 2 min read It's May 2 and in the last 24 hours I participated in my first fantasy football draft. Hi, my name is Will and I have a problem. JK, it's my job! In fact, in this case I was defending a championship, as we do a May draft that's featured in our CBS Fantasy magazine. (I won last year after going Ezekiel Elliott-Todd Gurley-DeAndre Hopkins. If I was half as smart in August as I am in May, I'd get some predictions correct.) It's a great barometer not only for where fantasy drafts stand, but also how the rookies who were taken in the 2018 NFL Draft are viewed from a fantasy perspective.But simply watching a draft unfold isn't enough. Oh no. We needed the services of Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, both senior fantasy writers on our award-winning CBSSports.com staff (not to … [Read more...] about Podcast: Where should you draft Saquon Barkley, best rookies for fantasy football drafts?
