The Juggernaut Index is our annual ranking and review of NFL teams for fantasy purposes — repeat: FANTASY PURPOSES. Here we concern ourselves with a franchise’s likely contributions to the fantasy player pool. We are not concerned with projected wins and losses. Instead, we’re focused on yards and points. As always, we’re beginning with the league’s least useful teams, working our way toward the elite fantasy juggernauts.

I’m fully on the “receivers early and often” bus this year, so this Shuffle Up might be the most important one we do. This is a position we need to get right.
Usual Shuffle Up disclaimers apply. The prices are unscientific and just a way to compare the players. When players are at the same price, it means they are considered even. I do not compare prices with other shuffles (or compare prices between different positions), and I do every shuffle from scratch. Season to taste, and your own particular league rules and parameters. I assumed a half-point PPR system, in theory, as I composed these.
Just prices for now. Tiers and comments will follow later Monday.
Tier 1 $51 Antonio Brown $48 Odell Beckham Jr. $46 Julio Jones

There’s a large contingent of football fans that staunchly believe preseason games are completely inconsequential. To these naysayers, they’re nothing more than an evaluation phase for head coaches looking to comprise the best 53-man roster. However, most fanatics would vehemently disagree. Exhibition action gives owners the opportunity to gain invaluable insight into potential sleepers and busts. In an attempt to decipher the meaningful from the meaningless, here are my top-five Lames from Preseason Week 3.

Tony Romo has been diagnosed with a broken bone in his back, with the latest reports suggesting his earliest return would be after Dallas’ Week 7 bye. It’s another tough blow for Romo, who simply can’t stay healthy and will be coming off another major back injury (he’s already had two surgeries) at age 36. He can be removed from draft boards in standard fantasy leagues. Enter Dak Prescott, who’s been the most eye-opening player in the NFL during preseason games, when he’s produced a 7:0 TD:INT ratio while getting 9.1 YPA. He’s an obvious upgrade over previous Dallas backup QBs (the team has won once over their last 14 games without Romo), but it’s one thing to perform in the preseason and another when it counts.

One of the biggest draft weekends is upon us. Let’s get down to brass tacks. Here’s a list of the main players in my fantasy portfolio to this point, a chunk of players who will define the success of my season, for good or for bad. (If you want the players I’m not drafting, that list is over here.)
And for what it’s worth, I’ve never drafted and pre-drafted as often as I have this summer. I’ve put in the reps. We’ll see where it takes us.
• Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks: It’s perfectly reasonable to use the R Word — Regression — when discussing Baldwin. Just make sure you start the conversation there, you don’t end it there.

Fantasy experts Andy Behrens and Scott Pianowski closed out Yahoo Sports’ six-straight days of Facebook Live Q&As on the Yahoo Sports page on Friday. They kicked things off by talking players they own the most shares of and then took your questions.
Scott loves Doug Baldwin, while Andy sees Michael Floyd riding the momentum of the end of last season into 2016 and has WR 1 upside.
Here are some of the other highlights:
3:15 mark: How do you think Josh Gordon will do this season?
4:45 mark: Do you take Golden Tate over Doug Baldwin?
6 th minute: Does Tyler Lockett have top 15 potential?
7:40 mark: Why is Latavius Murray so low on Yahoo rankings?

Fantasy experts Andy Behrens and Scott Pianowski handed out free advice during the fifth of six-straight days of Q&As on Facebook Live on the Yahoo Sports page. They kicked things off by talking overall draft strategy and then took your questions.
Scott, who has completed a mind-boggling 55 drafts, is going receiver heavy early. Andy doesn’t want to lock into a particular strategy going into a draft and would rather see how things unfold and react accordingly. He does admit the “swing for the fences” way to go is still sticking with a running back.
Here are the other highlights:
3 rd minute: Strategy in a PPR league with the 12 th overall pick.
This week in fantasy: Tony Romo gets hurt, Jeremy Hill shines, and fantasy footballers contend with NFL rule changeLiz Loza at Roto Arcade3 days ago
Preseason ball is underway… and so are fantasy drafts. But with buzzy nuggets of news emerging on a daily basis it becomes difficult to keep track of what matters and what doesn’t. In an attempt to streamline managers’ FF experience, each Friday I’ll highlight the biggest headlines and explain how they might affect fans of the virtual game.
HEADLINE: Tony Romo gets hurt early in third preseason outing. Three snaps into the Cowboys’ regular season dress rehearsal, Romo went down with an apparent back injury. He later begged to come back into the game, but head coach Jason Garrett made the decision to keep the 36-year-old on the sideline. In his stead, rookie back-up Dak Prescott impressed, completing 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and 1 TD.
