2019 Dynasty Football: Hakeem Butler Player Profile

Hakeem Butler, WR – Iowa State

The Overview

At 6’6” 225 pounds, Butler is a giraffe-sized receiver who came into his own during his redshirt junior season for the Cyclones in 2018. He totaled 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns on just 60 receptions, averaging an absurd 22 yards per reception. He has gathered a ton of hype after such a productive final season, but stats can be deceiving depending on the player and situation. As the draft is quickly approaching, Butler is widely projected to be a second-round pick, but is he really worth that much draft capital for an NFL team?

The Scout’s Notes

At first glance, Butler uses his size to box out cornerbacks and keep the ball away on any slant-type route.Continue reading ...

How to Prepare for a Startup Dynasty League

Dynasty Startup / Fantasy Football Basics

A dynasty startup league gives fantasy competitors a much more realistic feel of being a real life owner or general manager. Unlike in redrafts or even keeper leagues, in dynasty leagues, you retain the vast majority or nearly every player on your roster. You can reap the benefits of a marvelous move or pay the consequences of a crucial mistake for years to come. These leagues require much more strategy and dedication. If you’re a serious Fantasy Football owner who at the end of each year is depressed as you have to empty your roster of its abundant talent, dynasty leagues may be for you.… Continue reading ...

Fantasy Baseball: Keeper / Dynasty League Strategy

Daily Dr. Roto—May 4, 2018

Making a Dump

For those of you in dynasty or keeper leagues, part of the allure of playing is that you get to feel like you are a General Manager of a baseball team. You get to draft players, watch them, cut them, and of course, trade them. If you play in one of these leagues, you are most likely in it for the long haul, hoping to build a good enough team to win multiple Fantasy Championships.

However, not all teams are destined to come in the money. For those teams who find themselves at the bottom of the standings after a month or so of the season the question comes up–when is it time to dump your current team to retool for the following season?Continue reading ...

Dr. Roto: Dynasty Football Deep Sleepers!

Daily Dr. Roto—May 2, 2018

Dynasty Football Rip Van Winkles

Here are ten players selected on Day 3 of the NFL Draft who might have Fantasy relevance in 2018:

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman — Broncos GM John Elway might have gotten a huge bargain here with Freeman. Freeman was considered a potential first round pick going into his last season at Oregon but then was injured and saw a lot of eight-man defensive fronts. He will get the shot to win 1st and 2nd down carries in Denver and could find his way to 200+ carries this season.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup — Gallup might be one of the most pro-ready receivers in this year’s draft class which is a good thing since Dallas is going to need him to play right away now that Dez Bryant is gone.Continue reading ...

Dr. Roto Podcast – Tuesday, May 1

Winners

New York Giants — I do not care what any other expert says, Giants GM Dave Gettleman slayed this draft. Popular wisdom says not to draft running backs too early, but Penn State RB Saquon Barkley gives the Giants a game changer the team hasn’t had in years. Barkley’s presence also helps Eli Manning as teams were blitzing the Giants because they knew that they couldn’t run the football. And for what it’s worth Barkley’s presence helps the passing game so OBJSterling Shepard, and Evan Engram can have more room to roam. In the second round, the Giants added G Will Hernandez from UTEP who might be the second-best run blocker in the draft.… Continue reading ...

2018 Dynasty Football: Derrius Guice vs. Nick Chubb

Dr. Roto and Adam Ronis teamed up to discuss which running back should be selected second in Dynasty Fantasy Football drafts. With Saquon Barkley as the obvious top overall pick, Ronis and Doc debate whether Derrius Guice or Nick Chubb is the second-best running back heading into the 2018 NFL Draft. With Fantasy Football, so much depends on volume and opportunity. Ronis believes that in the right situation, Guice could be a three-down back and provide plenty of value, especially if he lands with a team like the Philadelphia Eagles. And although Dr. Roto says “Guice is nice,” the good doctor would prefer Nick Chubb, the human battering ram. Although Chubb does not catch passes, he will truck defenders like it’s nobody’s business.… Continue reading ...
