Top 10 Most Consistent Fantasy RBs Of 2018

Sometimes, fantasy point totals can deceive.

Case in point. David Johnson finished ninth in points among running backs this past season. That seems pretty good, right? Well, he was a top-10 fantasy back in just 56.3 percent of his 16 starts. What’s more, he scored 30 percent of his points in just four games. That’s a much bigger statistical factoid than his overall finish. So while he did put up respectable numbers overall, D.J.’s lack of consistent production might have cost you a shot at getting into the fantasy postseason.

Top 10 Most Consistent Fantasy QBs Of 2018

Sometimes, fantasy point totals can be deceiving.

Case in point. Aaron Rodgers finished sixth in points among quarterbacks this past season. That seems pretty good, right? Well, he was a top-10 fantasy quarterback in just 37.5 percent of his 16 starts. What’s more, he scored 40 percent of his points in just four games. That’s a much bigger statistical factoid than his overall finish. While he did put up a monster stat line in fantasy title week, Rodgers’ lack of consistent production might have cost you a shot at getting that far.

The Important NFL Dates To Know

So, the 2018 NFL season ended with the increasingly familiar sight of the New England Patriots celebrating another Super Bowl win – a record-equalling sixth.

It means we are left with a long, lonely, seven football-less months until the 2019 season kicks off on September 5 and we get to do it all again.

In the meantime, there’s still plenty of important dates in the NFL offseason calendar for you to keep track of. This is where the hard work starts for the 31 franchises looking to ensure it is them – and not New England – who lift the Vince Lombardi trophy in Miami a year from now.

Top NFL Free Agents

The NFL’s offseason schedule is in full swing, beginning the countdown to free agency and the 2019 NFL Draft.

And the 2019 list of free agents available is a good one. Names like Jadeveon Clowney, DeMarcus Lawrence, Le’Veon Bell, Tyrell Williams, Landon Collins and Frank Clark will be available for signing as unrestricted free agents, assuming they’re not hit with a franchise tag.

There are more than 700 players slated for free agency according to Spotrac. These are the six who will have the biggest impact on the league this offseason and when the season begins.

NFL Draft: Which Teams Need Quarterbacks?

Which NFL teams should consider drafting a quarterback in the first round? Kirk Morrison, Dave Richard and Rob Rang join Ryan Bass to break it down.

Minnesota Vikings: The Walking Dead

On Saturday night I witnessed as zombies crawled the streets of Minneapolis as a part of the largest and oldest zombie pub-crawl in the world. When I arrived at the Metrodome on Sunday morning it appeared as if the zombie pub-crawl had decided to go into overtime and spill into the Metrodome on Sunday. The Vikings came off as better zombies then most of the revelers out the night before. The result? Minnesota was left looking for brains after falling to the Carolina Panthers 35-10. The Vikings still stand at the bottom of the NFC North division with a record of 1-4. Coming out of the bye the team looked lackadaisical and unprepared. The secondary was atrocious, injuries have stricken the linebacker corp, and worst of all the first signs of the team quitting on the coaching staff have appeared. In other words the Vikings are in serious trouble.

Vikings Hand 49ers Surprising Week 3 Loss

Mistakes pile up that could not be overcome. 

I concluded my Week 2 post by saying that the 49ers cannot become complacent and have to be ready for any team to put up a good fight at any time.

Before that, I started my preseason post by saying that the team now has a target on the back of their uniforms, and that the other 31 clubs will be gunning to get a victory against San Francisco someway, somehow.

The Minnesota Vikings were the first to do so this season, handing the 49ers a 24-13 loss at the Mall of America Field in Minneapolis.

Lack of Firepower Worries Vikings Fans

This offseason has seen the Minnesota Vikings try to upgrade their less than stellar secondary and offensive line units. The Vikings, coming off of a 3 win season, had plenty of room for upgrades across the board. Another key area the Vikings addressed on the offensive was at tight end, adding John Carlson. Carlson should add solid blocking in the running game while adding another pass catching option alongside second year tight end Kyle Rudolph.
