FFBDPod 19:
2018 Fantasy Football Player Grades & The Fantasy Stock Formula

Grading the 2018 Fantasy Football Class:

Any successful business or brand has at least one way of separating from the pack. A different approach or style that puts them above everyone else.


At Roto Street Journal, we believe our Fantasy Stock Formula is one our greatest edges over the industry — there’s simply no better way to evaluate future fantasy fortunes.

In Episode 19, we reveal our secret sauce.


Simple yet incredibly in-depth, the Fantasy Stock Formula grades out every player with the 6 Crucial Fantasy Football Value Indicators in mind:


–Individual Talent


–Surrounding Talent

–Coaching Scheme




To open, The Wolf and Truth dive into how we evaluate and grade each category, and breakdown why each variable is essential to fantasy value.

Moreover, we break down the logic behind our new “Category Weights,” and why some Indicators (re: Talent and Usage) are worth more than others.


Soon after, things get heated.


While The Truth may agree with the formula, he and The Wolf are way off in some grading decisions. Find out why Tyreek Hill, Odell Beckham, Kirk Cousins, Big Ben, Leonard Fournette and Mr. Glass himself Jordan Reed are all major points of contention.

No other episode brings you truly behind the scenes quite and reveals are “backbone” quite like this, making Episode 19 a monumental must-listen.


  • What is our “Secret Sauce” for Ranking players, and why do we feel it’s far-and-away the best evaluation tool in the business?

  • What are the “Six Crucial Factors” to Fantasy Football Success, and how can you measure and grade each to create a holistic fantasy grade?

  • Why Talent trumps all in fantasy evaluations, but is far from the only factor that needs consideration

  • What “Fantasy Value Indicators” are almost always overlooked by other experts, and how this is completely screwing you over

  • Why Odell Beckham is our third highest graded WR… and why The Truth is absolutely furious over this

  • Why The Wolf grades Kirk Cousins significantly above Big Ben, and how Cousins’ score has improved in the team change

  • Why Jordan Reed‘s name should make you shudder… but why he could also be a league-changer in Round 10

  • Why The Truth has minimal faith in Leonard Fournette, and who he values ahead of him

  • All other grading dilemmas and disagreements, tune in now!
