    Top 5 Player Profiles By Position

    #1 Peyton Manning (Den)

    With a "noodle arm" and age theoretically working against him, Manning overcame the odds en route to a mammoth season, and arguably the greatest statistical quarterback campaign of all time. Despite losing LT Ryan Clady to a season-ending Lisfranc fracture two starts in, M... Read More

    #2 Aaron Rodgers (GB)

    A fractured collarbone ended Rodgers' fantasy season in Week 9. Exclude the game that was cut short and he averaged 24.8 standard league fantasy points per game, good for third at his position behind Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Rodgers returned in Week 17 to clinch the NFC North ... Read More

    #1 LeSean McCoy (Phi)

    After a disappointing, injury-plagued 2012, McCoy was shot out of a cannon in rookie coach Chip Kelly's run-centric offense, leading the NFL in carries, rushing and yards from scrimmage. A high-upside model of consistency - the ideal fantasy player - "Shady" scored a TD an... Read More

    #2 Jamaal Charles (KC)

    Two years removed from tearing his ACL, Charles was second to none amongst running backs, leading the league in touchdowns while piling up 1,980 yards from scrimmage. He proved to be a match made in heaven with coach Andy Reid, racking up 70 receptions on a whopping 104 targets in a... Read More

    #1 Calvin Johnson (Det)

    Johnson battled a knee injury, constant double-teams and Matthew Stafford's inconsistent accuracy all season long. He still emerged as a top-three fantasy receiver for the third straight year. Just one year after setting the NFL record for receiving yards in a season, Megatron poste... Read More

    #2 Dez Bryant (Dal)

    Continuing to mature both on and off the field, Bryant put together his second straight dominant season. His 25 touchdown receptions across the last two years are tied for most in the NFL, and he's played in 46 straight games despite battling a number of nicks. Dez really made his m... Read More

    #1 Jimmy Graham (NO)

    Graham battled foot and elbow injuries toward the end of the season but never missed a game and set a new career-high in touchdowns. He bounced back after a drop-filled and injury-riddled 2012 season. Graham outscored No. 2 fantasy tight end Vernon Davis by 56.5 standard points to f... Read More

    #2 Rob Gronkowski (NE)

    Gronkowski missed the first six games of the season as he recovered from a twice-broken forearm. He then tore his ACL and MCL in Week 14. If we extrapolated Gronkowski's stats from the seven games he played in across 16 contests, he would have put up an 89-1,353-15.2-9 receiving lin... Read More

    How Fantasy Football Scoring Works

    Your first step toward fantasy football dominance is realizing that not all fantasy leagues are created equal; by customizing your approach to fit the protocol of your league, you can significantly enhance your win probability. Understanding fantasy scoring systems is a major aspect of that.

    While the majority of fantasy football leagues are fairly similar in terms of how they dish out points, there are a few subtle differences that we see on a pretty regular basis. Let's dive into a few of those changes and how they should affect your strategy moving forward.
