Ray Flowers

MLB/NFL Analyst      

Ray Flowers has been a full-time fantasy analysist for the last 16 years – who has done that? – spending all his waking hours breaking down baseball, football and even hockey back in the day. For the past seven years, since the first day of the channel, he’s been on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio six days a week spewing opinionated analysis with his co-host Kyle Elfrink on the SiriusXM Fantasy Drive (Sirius 210, XM 87). Known for his analytical approach, Ray eschews pitching and quarterbacks early in drafts and isn’t afraid to predict outcomes that go completely against the grain if the data leads him there. When he’s not slaying Twitter with wondrous responses filled with charm and snark, or winning FSWA Writing Awards, he can be found watching a superhero flick, taking a swim or pounding vodka Red Bull’s into the wee hours of the morning.

 Coffin Corner - NFL Waiver-Wire, Week 12
Posted by Ray Flowers on Monday, November 20, 2017 - 15:42

Each week Ray Flowers will do his best to guess who might be available on the waiver-wire in your league to help you out. He’ll guess, not knowing your team situation or your league setup, what percentage of your budget you should be willing to part with in order to add the flavors of the week in free agency. Hopefully he can help you to avoid the pitfalls that often accompany the mad rush to the waiver-wire to add the newest shiny toy. * The $ in parenthesis is a percentage to be spent on the player. Therefore, a 20-25 number is 20-25 percent, i.e. 20-25 in a $100 FAAB league or 200-250 in a $1,000 league. ** Players are listed in alphabetical order. Use the $ figures to establish the order you should be bidding on players this week if you are in a league that doesn’t use the FAAB system.
