Matthew Berry Love Hate
The Love/Hate focuses on players who Mathew feels are being over or under-drafted. Matthew originally wrote Love/Hate, 100 Facts, and a Bold Predictions column for Fantasy baseball also, but penned his final editions of these in 2014 so as to focus on football.
He mostly emphasizes that a player on the “Hate” list is not players that Matthew believes will play poorly, but instead players that are being drafted too high or began too often. For instance, in the pre-season article preparing readers for the draft, a usual first-rounder on the “Hate” list might be thought by Matthew to deserve to go about five spots lower than he normally does, while later-round players on the “Love” list are players Matthew would draft a round or two higher than expected
