8/29/16: Five Safe Players & Romo/Dak Fallout

Sometimes you just need a security blanket. In fantasy, that means drafting someone who might not have the highest upside, but who's probably going to give you *something* every week. Today we count down our five safest players for 2016, and also give an extended look at the Cowboys situation with Dak Prescott at the helm.

8/26/16: Super-Deep Sleepers (Part 2) & Frag Players!

So much to talk about! Zeke Elliott ran in a football game! Tony Romo got crunched in a football game! We've got the second half of our Super-Deep Sleeper list, unearthing players deep-leaguers can stash and the rest of us can get clued-in on. And then it's *another* annual tradition: Cousin Josh gives you his five Frag Players for 2016. Guest: Cousin Josh (@DetectiveFisch).

8/25/16: Super-Deep Sleepers (Part 1)

It's another of our traditions: every year we give you 10 super-deep sleepers to keep in mind. Don't draft these guys except in very deep or dynasty leagues, but remember the names, and be ready to pounce on your waiver wire at the first sign of regular-season life. Also: what players have our opinions changed most on in August? Guest: Liz Loza of Yahoo! Fantasy (@LizLoza_FF).

8/23/16: Five Breakout Players

There are varying degrees of "sleepers." Sometimes you're looking for a mid-round guy you think can become more.

Plus, some talk about potential offensive line improvements and downgrades. Guest: Ross Tucker of the Fantasy Feast podcast (@RossTuckerNFL).
