Ben Tate and Ryan Mathews are being overvalued

Fantasy Football is always exciting, even when you are having a bad season.  I cannot preach it enough, that no matter how bad you start,  you can always come back.  My brother started out 0-5 two years ago and came all the way back to go 7-6 and make the playoffs.

As some of you know, I have a Facebook page called Fantasy Football Insight and every year someone tells me “I quit, I’m 0-5″.  Winning and losing in Fantasy Football can be the difference between picking up a Keenan Allen or a Nick Foles on the waiver wire and not getting either of them.  If you start out 0-5 but do well on the waiver wire, you are going to win some games and give yourself a chance to win.

Last year, I had a special fantasy season that started out really bad.  I started  0-2 and then I made a trade that changed everything . I got rid of Tom Brady and Marques Colston and got Matthew Stafford and Stevan Ridley in return, which ended up working out fantastically.  I went on to win 14 straight fantasy games, and ended up winning the championship.

In my five years of playing fantasy football, I have never had a season quite like that.  In order to have those seasons, you have to nail the sleepers.  Like those of you that nabbed Josh Gordon did last year.

Here is a list of the players that I like and don’t like at each position, starting with the quarterbacks.  This will focus on the running backs.
