Less touchdowns, a worse completion percentage, more interceptions, less wins -- it was an ugly and disappointing sophomore season for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III last year.
It included everything from hanging out with rappers in the nation's capital, to multiple gang affiliation rumors, but finally, after a media semi-circus, free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson has found a new home.
The Philadelphia Eagles have in fact released their long time deep threat wide receiver DeSean Jackson. For weeks Twitter had been buzzing about a possible trade between the Eagles and a number of teams, yet the chatter died down Wednesday after DeSean and head coach Chip Kelly spoke over the phone.
It’s win or go home time. You've spent months working your way to this point and now you’re here. Congratulations on making your fantasy football championship!
A large part of being successful in fantasy football is being able to determine the better match-ups in your lineup. Every week fantasy owners debate what players are the better starts for their team.
About a week ago, I sat in front of my TV flipping through the channels like I normally do and just so happened to stumble upon Al Pacino’s famous “inches” speech from the movie Any Given Sunday. Of course this speech got me thinking about fantasy football
Fantasy Wide receivers are the hardest position to find best buys in auction leagues as there are so many options at receiver. You could go a number of different directions and still have a pretty decent core.
A successful draft can give you bragging rights, a little extra spending money, and maybe even a trophy. An unsuccessful draft can result in at least six months of trash talk and banter.
As many predicted before the season, Michael Vick's style of play would lead to injuries from taking too many hits, although having one of the worst offensive lines in football hasn't helped. The Eagles’ 3rd round rookie backup quarterback Nick Foles from Arizona will get another start and try to improve on his first start from a week ago. Eagles fans had been calling for him in recent weeks due to Vick’s inconsistent play, but bad penalties, rookie mistakes and dropped passes made for one ugly debut.
One of the most underrated statistics in fantasy football is the target – The number of times a player is the intended target of a pass. This stat looks at how often the quarterback is attempting to get the ball to a certain player. It doesn’t matter if the pass was caught, dropped, intercepted or even catch-able, it’s the fact that he was the marked man, the destination of the pass
Every year the summer rolls around, I cant stop thinking about how great my fantasy teams are going to be this year, and inevitably, the players who I absolutely wont draft. We all have them, and we do our absolute best not to touch them. Unfortunately, they sometimes drop three rounds and we get them, anyway, but thats just bargain shopping. Its hard to turn down a good sale. With that in mind, lets peep my top-10 players I will avoid like the plague this fall.
