An offseason update from KC

The sporting world has been in a state of limbo for a couple of months now, but every sign in the NFL world points towards the league moving forward to start the season at some point in 2020.
 
If the league is moving forward so is The Football Scientist website, so here is a rundown of everything of note in the TFS world.
 
Football Diehards radio show. It really starts feeling like fantasy football season when talking with Bob Harris and Mike Dempsey of Football Diehards, so I’m fired up to announce that I will be appearing on the Football Diehards Sirius XM satellite radio show starting at 8 PM on Saturday night (May 23). The segments should last around 45 minutes, so please stop by for a listen this weekend if you want to hear some deep dive fantasy football analysis!
 
TFS post free agency/NFL draft fantasy rankings. I recently made four fantasy football rankings posts that are available to Paydirt subscribers. Two items of note are that there are more green-rated running backs than wide receivers in this year’s ranks and that there are only three blue-rated QBs. A number of factors led to this, but the primary one is that the passing game requires more practice time to get up to speed than the running game. Since this offseason is all but certain to curtail much of the usual allotment of practice time, QBs and WRs will have a tougher time getting in sync than RBs. This should allow RBs to get to par a lot faster than QBs and WRs and thus RB fantasy value is positively impacted.
 
A brand-new format for the 2020 TFS Draft Guide. I have spent a lot of time working with a developer over the past couple of months to put together the biggest formatting changes in the 16-year history of the TFS fantasy football Draft Guides. The goal of these alterations is to make the Draft Guide as reader friendly as possible while also providing relevant fantasy draft information in a more succinct and compact way. The early results have blown me away, so I cannot wait to get this year’s Draft Guide finished to share these results with all of you.
 
The Football Scientist YouTube channel. I am also putting the finishing touches on The Football Scientist YouTube channel. This channel will have a variety of elements covering both fantasy football and the NFL (and maybe even a couple of other elements if time allows). It will be a few weeks before the channel alterations and additions are complete, so I will keep you updated as to a potential rollout date as it closes in.
