2019 Football Draft Kit

When trying to determine which offenses to buy into this season for fantasy, it’s important to take a look back how offenses finished in three categories in 2018: Offensive Pace, Rushing Rate, and Passing Rate. 

These stats help us get a general sense of which offenses were run-heavy and which were pass-heavy, and which offenses operated at a fast or slow pace of production. If a certain offense prioritizes the run, and works at a slower pace, it shouldn’t necessarily mean that we should avoid all of their receivers or QB, it’s just good to know that the offensive design would typically favor their running backs instead, and vice versa.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to look slightly different in 2019. Not at all because of the uniforms because those will look the same. I’m really digging the yellow writing on top of the black jersey that they have been rocking recently. I hope they drop the bumblebee uniforms that they wear every now and then. There’s nothing worse than Ben Roethlisberger looking like he is about to “pollinate”. Plus, black is a slimming color and Ben Roethlisberger could use that advantage for his appearance.

This is not just a normal Monday morning. Today is the start of the ninth annual Scott Fish Bowl, better known as #sfb9 on twitter. If you aren’t familiar with SFB9, it is a giant contest consisting of 1,500 competitors picked by Scott Fish out of a pool of 12,000 applicants and it contains a very unique scoring system that favors tight ends and quarterbacks. Razzball has quite the presence in this year’s competition with 6 of our writers/projectors receiving spots. So good luck to Rudy Gamble, B-Don, Donkey Teeth, Nic Romero, Rotowan. It would feel weird to wish myself good luck, but yes, I am competing and hoping for excellent results.

Offensive lines won’t exactly make or break fantasy seasons for players; it’s always possible for teams to produce on offense even with a sub-par group up front. However, it’s important to take note of which units have succeeded and which have failed in helping keep their QB’s clean, and create gaps for running backs to accelerate through.

Kliff Kingsbury’s offense will feature elite pass volume and highlight QB rushing ability. Even if it fails, Kyler Murray is still going to score a lot of fantasy points. Don’t worry that he’s a rookie and buy at his current ADP. Close your eyes. Erase everything you know about the Arizona Cardinals from 2018. Stare […]

Everyone loves a feel good story. Last season we watched Damien Williams, a career backup, burst onto the scene in the fantasy playoffs to average 24.76 PPR fantasy points per game in weeks 14-16. He continued the success in the real football playoffs with 4 touchdowns combined in the divisional round and conference championships. Williams parlayed all of this into a new two year contract.

The fantasy community took notice, and Williams is currently the 21st player off the board in drafts per Fantasy Football Calculator. This valuation is supported by the high octane nature of the Chiefs offense and Williams potential fit into the scheme. However, when other factors are brought in to project Williams 2019 season the picture isn’t so clear.
