Week 5 is upon us and we have more NFL tape to review on some of the promising rookies of the 2019 class before we eventually start looking ahead to 2020. Watching young guys on tape doesn’t sound too creepy, right?Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best blend of accurate and bold weekly projections for QB/RB/WR/TE + PK + Defensive Teams and IDP as well as a kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
There were some hefty bids put on rookie sensation T.J. Hockenson last week, which was promptly followed by some reactionary drops this week.
When it comes to rookies, make your evaluation and believe in it. Be willing to accept changes in their skill set on the field, but we can only do so much to predict usage. Just ask Rudy. Trust the process even though we always need results. This is the rookie oath.Please, blog, may I have some more?
2019 was not the most spectacular class of rookies to enter the NFL. In fact, multiple times, I’ve said that the running back class is the weakest we’ve seen in the last decade with the possible exception of 2010. As history shows us with rookies, it is not always the first ones drafted that make the biggest impact in fantasy. While Saquon obviously ran away with the 2018 rookie class MVP, the 2nd leading rusher of the group was the undrafted Phillip Lindsay.
When evaluating rookies, every analyst uses some combination of talent and opportunity, and I tend to lean more toward the talent side of those. Situation can change, and while players can improve, I tend to trust my evaluations in their skills.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello and welcome back to another year of Dynasty Deep Dives! With it being mid-August I’m sure the majority of fantasy gamers have already completed their drafts, but all of us will be wrapping up our draft season in the next couple of weeks. Let’s’ dive in like Antonio Brown dove into his cryogenic therapy. Here are a few rookie running backs that you should not have cold feet about drafting this year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A key component to draft season success is the identification of improperly valued players in comparison to their ADPs. As fantasy football owners all we can do is analyze the players at hand and have a qualitative/quantitative backing for our position on the players. While it is early in draft season it is important that […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Aaahhh, springtime is right around the corner and before you know it, the polar vortex will be done unleashing it’s frozen hell upon the U.S. The transition from snow to sunshine can only mean one thing is next– spring cleaning. We all know the routine, go through all the old things you don’t use, wear, or need any longer and toss it in the trash. You may be thinking, “What does this have to do with fantasy football?” Well, much like my wife throwing stuff out to justify buying more things, fantasy owners are also preparing to toss out players they now consider garbage so they can jump into the nice warm caress of a new batch of incoming rookies. This can be a perfect situation to dive right in and scoop up another man’s trash and turn it into your treasure. The first player we will look at as we dive into the dynasty dumpster: Stephen Hill.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well it’s bee awhile and I would personally like to thank Sky for allowing me to return after a much need break. Before you ask, I was not banished from the island of Razzball. Like a bad episode of Survivor, I was on vacation and a much needed vacation at that. Speaking of Survivor, I just joined an interesting fantasy football league that is a draft only, best ball format, but the team with the lowest points each week gets removed until there is only one left. I’ve seen lots of interesting formats but that one is above and beyond cool, looking forward to it although I will probably be out week 1, being an outcast sucks….but well enough of that, I’m writing today to bring you a perspective of a very different quarterback then that of rising star Tannehill whom I spoke of in my last post which you can find here with my Ryan Tannehill Dynasty diatribe. That player we are talking about somewhat in the hot seat is quarterback Josh Freeman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Freeman in the hot seat?! Let’s trudge on into the ether that is the second paragraph to find out…Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the large amount of rookie quarterback success in 2012, with names like Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, there are several young players in Miami that should not be overlooked, one of them is 2nd year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. I will admit that I didn’t know much about Ryan Tannehill until I watched an episode of “Hard Knocks” starting the Dolphins in mini-camp. Not sure if I’m more embarrassed about not knowing much about him at that point or that I was actually watching the HBO series. Anyway the show basically portrayed Tannehill as a talented but arrogant 1st round draft pick, who was fighting veteran David Garrard and Matt Moore for a job that was basically his. There was speculation after the draft that he might not even play due to a hold out on his contract…wait, a holdout for a rookie? Yes it was true and probably where he gets the arrogant and cocky label from, well that and a hot girlfriend. Don’t believe me? Google it… Well now that I have distracted all the readers and are probably no longer reading we are going to take a look Tannehill’s 2012 season and how it compared to some of the other rookies with the hope that we can apply it to his 2013 and future potential as what we all hope will be the next Dolphin’s franchise quarterback.Please, blog, may I have some more?
