As every commercial and email I received during the past four months have been more than happy to remind me, “We are in uncertain times…” Unfortunately, this sentiment has grown to include the start of the NFL season. Preseason may end up canceled to go along with, at best, a shortened training camp. Right now, the NFL is reluctant to adopt the “bubble” strategy other sports are employing. These choices may mean the season is at even more risk than other leagues.
That rookie running back that was just drafted with the 5th overall pick in the dynasty rookie draft is going to set your team over the edge this year! This is what many fantasy players tell themselves every year. It may be true, however does the data back it up?
Tyler Dell is leading the Gibson Express to Championship-ville. Read why he believes Antonio Gibson provides Washington with more than just a receiving back.
What is the point of all this? Why is this important? It’s important because when you are drafting Wide receivers as rookies or buying/selling them based on what happened their rookie year, you have to get it right. At no point throughout that Receivers career are 10 touches a game just going to fall into their lap. Is David Montgomery good? Does anyone actually know? Does it matter? Don’t be silly OF COURSE it doesn’t matter. The Bears have chosen to endow him with 250 carries next year. He was drafted top 3 in most dynasty rookie drafts last year. He was awful, I mean hot garbage. I bet most owners of David Montgomery if they held on could probably still get a 1st round rookie value of some kind back for him in return. Even if he goes out an average 3 yards a carry next year. He will still likely see a role in 2021.
Thank you for joining me for part 5 of my Dynasty startup review. At this point we’re going to increase the number of rounds we cover again and reach the halfway point of the draft by covering rounds 11 through 15.
By this stage in proceedings, our teams are coming together. Each manager should have an idea of where their strengths lie and what positions they need to take some fliers on in the middle rounds. So without further ado here is the results of this portion of the draft:
Part 3 in the RoD Writers League startup series!
Welcome back, and thanks for joining me in my recap of rounds three and four of our writers' room dynasty startup. We finished round two with eight quarterbacks, ten running backs, four wide receivers and one tight end off the board; no kickers or mascots have been drafted yet (these guys might know what they're doing!).
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.
Cooks has been a wanted man in the NFL since being drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2014. In 13 months, Cooks was traded from the Saints to the Patriots to the Rams. Cooks was moved arguably before his prime, too, between the ages of 23 and 24.
