The Origins Of The Steve Raynes Bowl

Twitter and social media in general can be a dark and horrible place at times. However every now and then you come across a gem, a real gem! I’ve been very lucky in this regards, I’ve become friends with some great people through social media, Jamie, Tim, Liz, Bharat, Allan and Steve to name a few there’s many more. In March 2018 I decided to start a podcast, Kickers Matter Fantasy Football Podcast. [Kickers Don’t Matter by the way] Little did I know what was coming my way. I started as a one man band getting my old school pal …

The true Atlanta value!

The next team we are going to be looking at is the Atlanta Falcons who have struggled over the last few years since their infamous collapse against New England in the 2017 superbowl. Last year they only managed to finish with a losing 7-9 record but they do still have plenty of attacking threat for your fantasy team. The Falcons will be lead by their quarterback Matt Ryan, who has been there for 12 years now and looks another solid bet for a top ten finish. Ryan finished as the QB11 last year and currently has an ADP of 9.09, …

Hopkins has been a giant for fantasy in the …

This is the last of my articles looking at the AFC divisions and this time its the AFC South that im going to be checking out. I am using a half PPR ADP for the mock draft information. The first team that I am looking at today is the Houston Texas who managed to get in the play-offs with a 10-6 winning record last year. The Texans have got one of the most wanted QB’s in the league with Deshaun Watson who finished number 5 last year and number 4 the previous. He amassed 33 touchdowns passing and rushing but …

Overlooked PPR Star?

26 soon to be 27 year old wide receiver out of Duke University, who finished 26th in PPR formats last year and had career highs in targets (122), receptions (78) and receptions for first downs (41) as well as his second highest touchdown total with 6 and also second highest receiving yards in a regular season with 833 yards. Drafted to the Washington Redskins in 2015 with the 105th pick, could this 5 year veteran have another season of personal career high in 2020?

They finished the regular season with a 12-4 record before going on to lift the Lombardi trophy against the San Francisco …

Risers and Fallers

Running Backs Players drafted in the 2020 NFL draft are not going to be included in this piece as they obviously can only rise due to not having a standing for 2019, although they will be included in my thought process of how many players may fall out of the top 10 and also how many players could rise into the top 10. Players who finished the 2019 regular season inside the top 10 who might fall outside the top 10 this 2020 season. Firstly, a major faller could be the number 2 running back in PPR formats from the …

State of the Franchises – NFC West

Fantasy Outlook By Division NFC West If there is a phrase that seems to fit the NFC West it’s “feast or famine”. The teams that make up the West seem to rise and fall in unison – it’s either hyper competitive or filled with bottom feeders. Next season it looks like it’s going to be the former. After their loss in Super Bowl 54 the San Fransisco 49ers will open the season as favourites but will face competition from the Seattle Seahawks and LA Rams and may even see a significant improvement from the Arizona Cardinals. San Fransisco 49ers Despite …

SKOL!

As someone who is relatively new to the NFL, having only followed the league for four years. Also, as a Leeds United fan who hasn’t had much success to speak of in the last 15 years or so, I obviously chose one of the few teams never to win a SuperBowl before in the Minnesota Vikings, just to pile on the misery a bit more. At least I’ll get to enjoy the ups and downs of both teams at each side of the Atlantic. For my first piece I’m writing about the Vikings for dynasty purposes, as after the Chiefs …
