With the new season just mere hours away, last minute draft preparation goes into overdrive. Past performance can often be a good way of indicating future success, but don't just expect the points players got in 2015 to magically make it on to your fantasy squad. Here are five studs from last season that, for one reason or another, will not be as successful this time around.
NFL.com Playoff Challenge Start’em Sit’em The key to the NFL.com Playoff Challenge is to pick the two teams you expect to make the Super Bowl and ride or die with them. The double, triple and quadruple point multipliers are worth the zero point efforts in Week 1. In 2013, I got a piece of all […]
Tom Brady boasts a 30-13 record in the month of September, and a 5-2 regular season record against the Steelers with a 18-3 touchdown to interception ratio and a 331 passing yard average.
Pittsburgh Steelers fans (and fantasy fans) were licking their chops at the teams prospects for 2015. With Ben Roethlisberger signing a new contract, more or less assuring he finishes his career in black and gold, Le'Veon Bell recovering from the knee hyperextension that ruled him out of the Wildcard round of last seasons playoffs, and Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and even Markus Wheaton ready to roll, it wouldn't shock anyone if the Steelers did in fact achieve offensive coordinator Todd Haley's goal of 30 points a game in the coming season.
Cam Newton has been impressive during the win streak and looks like the top 5 QB he's been billed as for the last two years. He's pretty much the only QB in the NFL that doubles as a goal-line RB and he has a good arm. Cam can score in more ways than any...
Fantasy Cap Casualty List In the next few weeks, more and more NFL teams will have to evaluate their current roster under a completely different perspective. Ideally, every NFL team wants to have a roster full of superstars who can make plays and become leaders on and off the field. Yet since the NFL is […]
You know what makes the NFL great, its unpredictability. Each week, contradiction and conventional thinking collides giving sportswriters more than enough good stuff to write about on Tuesday. From a pair of superstar running backs coming back from ACL injuries to Sanchezmania to a pair of rookie quarterbacks taking charge in year one, it's all covered in the Week 1 edition of the Tuesday Takeaway.
It's difficult to peg traditional "sleepers" on the opening week of the NFL season. You have no current stats to go off of and have to rely on last year's trends and tendencies. However, there are plenty of injuries that might open the door for an unheralded player or two to post some very good numbers. Let's take a look at some players that might be on your bench, or even waiver-wire, that have the opportunity to be considered as starters this week.
Like the series of worst NFL draft picks, we celebrate not the best, but the worst of the past. Who is the worst NFL team of the last sixteen years? This is the un-Sweet Sixteen NFL Toilet Bowl Bracket. A tournament pitting the worst NFL teams over the last sixteen seasons against each other in a March Madness format. Some years there was a tie for worst record so my tiebreaker was largest point differential.
The target statistic is far more significant for the wide receiver position. When it comes to deciding where to draft a running back, targets takes a back seat to carries.
