The RSP Pre-Draft is only 1 of the 2 publications you get for the single price of $21.95.
Subscribers also get the RSP Post-Draft as part of the purchase. Writing two separate analysis allow me the luxury to weigh my rankings less on draft stock and more on talent. It means that the post-draft can deliver greater focus on player and organizational fit, team depth chart analysis, the impact of free agency, and analysis of this rookie class’ short-term strategic value.
Once they see it, many of my first-time readers tell me they’d pay far more than $21.95 for the post-draft alone. However, they also come to me 2-3 years later to tell me that the Pre-Draft RSP holds its value for at least 3-5 years and they still use it often.
New to the RSP? Have you heard of it, but never took the plunge? Take a video tour of a past publication…
…a tour of the 2017 RSP Pre-Draft…
…and the post-draft version that will be available in May (no more than 1 week after the NFL Draft)
If you’re like many of my new readers, you’ll ask yourself the same question they have: Why did I wait so long to buy this?
Been flipping through @MattWaldman’s 2016 RSP for most of the day. An absolute must-own for any draftnik. Very thorough, detailed work…Frankly, I”m made at myself for only starting this year.

Best pre-draft scouting report on every conceivable guy [at the skills positions] is by @MattWaldman. Very good read — mattwaldman.com.

Purchased the RSP by @mattwaldman for the first time. Lots of “holy ___’s” were said in an empty house. Incredible work.

@MattWaldman’s Rookie Scouting Portfolio came out today. If you’re gonna spend for one football source, this is it.

You should also know, that in fifteen years of playing fantasy football (I started in 1999—Senior year of high school), I have never paid for fantasy football information. Not magazines. Not websites. Nothing. I read/listen to everyting possible as I digest information and draw my on conclusions. I was apprehensive about ‘wasting’ twenty dollars. Thanks you for the hours spent doing something that you love. I appreciate it. Again, quality in-depth work. I would pay double the price. Easily. Get some sleep.
I look forward to sharing more of my thoughts about these players—and the process—in the coming weeks. Download the 2017 RSP and let me know what you think.
