    With that, here are four running backs who could prove to be overvalued:

    FOXBORO - Bill Belichick long has admitted how he and technology are not intertwined. The New England Patriots head coach previously depicted that with his reference to “SnapFace,” a well-known compilation of Snapchat and Facebook, of course.
    So, when Belichick was asked by a young reporter about his feelings regarding fantasy football, he struck a predictable tone.
    “Honestly, I don't really have any opinion on that. Because fantasy football doesn't mean anything to me,” Belichick said before the Patriots took part in their latest training camp session Thursday. “Like...

    Tight end long has been a tricky position in fantasy football.
    Having one who can put up wide receiver-like numbers - Travis Kelce, an early round pick, for instance - can give you a significant weekly advantage. But there's usually a sharp drop-off to the next tier, which consists of several interchangeable players, and sometimes you're better off waiting until the later rounds to draft a tight end if you don't aggressively pounce early.
    And uncovering a gem toward the end of the draft, or even on the waiver wire? That's a game-changer as far as building your roster.

    The Las Vegas Raiders surrounded Derek Carr with a couple new toys to throw to this season.
    With star wide receiver Davante Adams and complementary piece Keelan Cole joining a solid group of pass-catchers, that should provide a substantial boost to the veteran quarterback's fantasy football value.
    Carr, who is entering his ninth season with the Raiders, didn't put up sterling statistics last year when he threw for 4,804 yards and 23 touchdowns to go along with 14 interceptions. Those numbers should increase this year, especially with one of the top wide receivers in the...
