2013 NFL Draft Preview: Running Backs (4-18-13): Opinions vary on the RB's and who the best is, but fantasy owners are always looking to the rookie RB's to provide instant fantasy football help. Who are the top prospects in 2013? Russ Bliss examines.

2013 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterbacks (4-15-13): This quarterback class lacks any sure things according to Russ Bliss. And there are plenty of questions about each of them and whether any will succeed at the NFL level.

Top 10 Fantasy WR's for 2013 (2/19/13): Andre Johnson? Larry Fitzgerald? Nope. Neither one made the top 10 on Russ's early 2013 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers Rankings. That's a testament to how strong the position is in 2013. Everyone knows Megatron is #1, but Russ slips in a couple of sleepers on the list.

Top 10 Fantasy RB's for 2013 (1/30/13): On his early 2013 Fantasy Football Running Backs Rankings there are some names some might be looking for, but aren't there.

2013 NFL Free Agent Running Backs (1/24/13): Some very intirguing names on this list of available RB's in 2013. A change of scenery for some of these players could breathe new life into their NFL careers and give fantasy owners a boost!

2013 NFL Free Agent Wide Receivers (1/24/13): A very top heavy list with a strong top 7, but many questions after that. A change of scenery for guys like Dwayne Bowe and Mike Wallace could be big for their 2013 fantasy football projections while a guy like Wes Welker may be best off staying put.

2013 NFL Free Agent Kickers (1/24/13): The least sexy position in fantasy football doesn't always mean the least valuable.
