  1. One of the (many) things I love about football over other sports is the importance of the coaches. Major League Baseball managers are almost superfluous with rare exceptions at the tails of best and worst. NBA coaches are more responsible for psychotherapy and group dynamics than Xs and Os in many cases. But in the NFL it’s so clearly about the coaches. I went with 50% for Bill B because that gives him more credit than anyone else. And I think that’s fair.
  2. No disrespect to Sproles, but I hate the idea of his overtaking Tim Brown for anything. And if there were ever an indication of how all-purpose yards was meaningless in the grand scheme of things, it's that Sproles currently rankings 8th.
  3. Carson Wentz played a huge part in the best season in the history of my football fandom. Although he wasn't on the field for the playoffs, the Eagles never would have gotten there (as the No. 1 seed) without Wentz' MVP-caliber play before tearing multiple ligaments. Entering 2018, Wentz is one of three highly divisive but potentially elite fantasy quarterbacks, along with Houston's DeShaun Watson (torn ACL) and Andrew Luck (shoulder). All three, if healthy, can deliver not only No. 1 fantasy value but vie for the overall #1 ranking at the position. Yet, none are surefire bets for health. Luck
  4. My first fantasy football championship came thanks, in part, to Ed McCaffrey. Now his son is poised to win me titles because too many are worried he's permanently relegated to 3rd down work. That's silly. Christian McCaffrey is not Theo Riddick. He's got the vision, balance, strength, and college experience to dominate in any down and distance. It just so happens McCaffrey is an elite receiver and the Panthers had a veteran running back to help balance things out. With Jonathan Stewart out to pasture (in New York), things looked great for McCaffrey until the team signed C.J. Anderson in free a
  5. Kerryon my wayward son! No team typifies "in search of runners" like the Lions. It's been more than a decade since the Lions had a 1,000-yard rusher. Hard to imagine the same team that gave us Barry Sanders is now incapable of producing a fantasy star at running back. The Lions hope they've broken the curse with the selection of Kerryon Johnson in this year's draft. But Johnson's path is far from assured. LeGarrette Blount signed. Theo Riddick remains. Ameer Abdullah remains (although his spot seems tenuous). And new head coach Matt Patricia is used to a committee approach from his long stint
  6. Jimmy Garoppolo is already a legend in spite of starting just seven games in his career. He's 7-0 with a 67% completion rate, 4.4% touchdown rate, a measly 1.8% interception rate, and a phenomenal 8.3 AY/Att. Armed with a hefty contract, he enters his first preseason as a starter and fantasy owners have projected a breakout season for the entire 49ers offense. Yet, Marquise Goodwin's fantasy prospects remain relatively subdued. It seems most are ready to hand the No. 1 role to Pierre Garcon. I'm not. Garcon has always been a compiler, and last year we saw what Goodwin can do with Garoppolo in
  7. Keenan Allen finally had the season we all thought him capable of last year, but I'm left wondering if he has an even better season ahead. Ken Whisenhunt has been a masterful combination with Philip Rivers, and the season-ending loss of Hunter Henry leaves Allen with a monstrous target share all but guaranteed. His injury history always looms, but absent missing games, Allen is on a short list of receivers who could dethrone Antonio Brown in PPR formats. Do you agree or not? And why?
  8. Agreed Joe. I've been wrong on Prescott both years. The first year I was convinced having to start a raw, mid-rounder in place of Romo meant disaster and yet Prescott was a borderline MVP candidate. I assume a full offseason as the established starter in Year 2 would mean greatness, and we know how that turned out. His ADP is so low it's hard not to love Prescott as your QB2 because we know he can deliver elite QB1 numbers under the right circumstances.
  9. Dez Bryant was sent packing. Jason Witten unexpectedly retired. Terrance Williams is still Terrance Williams. Dak Prescott needs playmakers, and Michael Gallup has the opportunity to be among the leading rookies in terms of targets and receptions if he can impress the coaches in the early preseason. Gallup isn't a complete player yet but his film shows a dynamic playmaker with a "my ball" mentality. He's the kind of aggressive receiver Prescott needs to flourish. Allen Hurns, a free agent, could be the team's de facto #1, but Gallup has a much higher upside (higher risk, higher reward).
  10. No coach is harder to figure out than Bill Belichick when it comes to the running back position. One week's star is the next week's inactive. This offseason was full of surprises, starting with the acquisition of Jeremy Hill. But nothing was as shocking as the Patriots using a 1st round pick on Georgia's Sony Michel. Michel, considered by many the second best prospect on his own college team (paging Nick Chubb), has the dynamism and versatility to fit perfectly into the Patriots swiss-army knife offense. But the rookie must disprove fumbling concerns and contend with a number of veteran ball c
  11. Alvin Kamara went from an afterthought a year ago in drafts to a consensus top-10 pick this year. The former Tennessee Volunteer was the THIRD Saints running back drafted last year, on average. Behind Mark Ingram. Behind Adrian Peterson. He was the 10th rookie RB drafted, on average. He was the 59th running back drafted. Yet, he became only the 4th rookie running back to post at least 500 yards rushing/receiving in the last 20 years, and his 1500+ yards and 13 touchdowns were good enough for a top-5 finish in every scoring format. This year expectations are sky high, particularly w
  12. Shark Pool! We're baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack After a hiatus, we're bringing the Player Spotlight threads back to the Shark Pool. For those who are new around here, the Player Spotlights are a main feature of our preseason on the site. They're in-depth looks at key players, including pros and cons, and our staff projections. For years, we also included the best commentary from the Shark Pool. A few years ago, activity in the Pool died down and commentary waned. But, we have confidence in a resurgence. So here's the deal. Discuss your thoughts about the player in question. We'll pick
