This kinda felt like a sinking ship the moment Cam Newton walked onto the field to start the season despite clearly still being under the effects of last season's lingering injuries. To Ron Rivera's credit, he did manage to last all the way through twelve games despite benching Newton after two. At the end of the day though, when your entire team's success rests on the shoulders of a single injury-prone player then this is bound to happen sooner or later. Enter Matt Rhule. Carolina brings in Rhule as their new head coach after watching him turn Baylor's program around in just three short years despite following in the wake of a massive scandal. Rhule brings with him his defensive coordinator from Baylor Phil Snow, and hired LSU WR coach and passing game coordinator Joe Brady as his new offensive coordinator.
Most of you have probably heard by now about a particular high profile signing the Patriots made. For most signings, even the high profile ones, I can just make a small edit to the original projection and leave it at that. Swapping out Jarrett Stidham for Cam Newton under center, however, is no ordinary change. Cam's unique talents and abilities demand an entirely different offense, something that I have no doubt Bill Belichick is aware of. As such, we bring you our revised Patriots projection!
There is often a disconnect between football outcomes and fantasy football production. The disconnect has its most significant impact when assessing the change in fantasy value for players on a team that drafted their new stud quarterback. In this article, we will look at the last decade of top-16 quarterbacks and analyze why you shouldn't expect increased fantasy production from any of the Bengals skill position players in 2020. However, if you think Burrow is going to be the greatest quarterback in NFL history, then you're probably going to disagree with everything in this article.
