Thanks in no small part to a late-season surge, Dan Quinn keeps his head coaching seat by the skin of his teeth for the second year in a row. Sharp contrast from the Falcons' Super Bowl appearance just a few years ago. He retains Dirk Koetter as his offensive coordinator, but will relinquish his defensive coordinator title to Raheem Morris. Morris was promoted from DB coach, but had been calling defensive plays toward the end of 2019 anyway so there likely won't be a huge change on that side.
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.
This article will make a case for three players at each position who are draft day values that I believe have a chance to finish as the #1 at their respective position. Keep these underappreciated guys in mind when you miss out on one of the favorites, and you might just be surprised. Even in dynasty leagues, teams in "win now" mode should consider these aging players to lead them to the promised land even if only for a year or two.
