Who to Target – Bengals

2 Offences primed to take a leap for fantasy Often when we are building dynasty teams we target players and really don’t look at the situation that they are in and the people around them. I’m going to go into the teams I’m targeting and the players within it and why. Also as an FYI this doesn’t mean I try and take them all I just try to target one of these players per team but these are teams that I think will take a leap forward in fantasy and ones I am staying clear of. Bengals – Ready to …

Late Round Steeler

My take is that Mike Tomlin will have a running back committee this year, he can’t trust James Conner to stay healthy and the Steelers have declined the option to take up his 5th year so he’s moving onto pastures new after this season. That leaves you with 3 running backs after James Conner who all have their own skill sets. Anthony McFarland – is a fast paced back but I don’t see him as anything more than change of pace guy. Jaylen Samuel’s – he’s a pass catching back at best but doesn’t work as well running through the …

Jacob Eason Position: QB School: Washington Height: 6’6” 40-yard dash: 4.89 seconds 2020 Age: 23 Jacob Eason has landed at a perfect spot with the Colts, sat behind an established veteran in Philip Rivers for a year or so and under the guidance of Frank Reich who has worked with a number of top Quarterbacks in his time from Peyton Manning to Carson Wentz and Andrew Luck. He’s deemed to be a quarterback whisperer. I had Eason ranked in my top 6 QBs coming into this draft and he is going undrafted in some Superflex fantasy leagues which I find …

This week in fantasy saw more of the regular players coming to fruition. Mike Evans pretended to be a tight end and smoked the New York Giants. Russell Wilson helped a lot of people win leagues with garbage time points. Two of the replacement quarterbacks finished in the top six for the week in PPR. Let’s have a look at what other things we learned in fantasy this week. 1. Daniel Jones could be a worthwhile play A seismic change happened for the G-men during last week. As starting quarterback and offence hostage taker Eli Manning lost his starting job …

After seven months in the wilderness the NFL is back, and week one didn’t disappoint. After a bit of rustiness in the first game on Thursday night between the Packers and Bears, the Sunday slate of games gave us a more optimism of for fantasy players. Below are five lessons we have learnt from week one. Remember this only week one and by the time week two is in the books then all this could be irrelevant. 1.  Start Everyone Against Miami It was safe to say we wasn’t expecting the Miami Dolphins to set the league alight but was …

Is the Air Raid About to the Take The NFL By Storm?

Offensive masterminds are all the rage in NFL coaching circles. During the offseason, coaching searches largely focused almost exclusively on finding the “next Sean McVay”; so much so that the standard joke became that anyone who’d met the Rams Head Coach was automatically added to every team’s shortlist. The most extreme outcome of this approach seemed to take place in Arizona where the team dumped Steve Wilks after only one season and went about a complete 180-degree turnaround in organisational direction. The Cardinals search ended with the appointment of former Texas Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury, a move, that on …

Draft Reaction Days 1 & 2

What Just Happened?   The NFL Draft is a rollercoaster of emotions. For some players the culmination of their dream of reaching the league, for GMs and owners hope springs eternal as they attempt to to restock their rosters ahead of the new season and for dynasty owners a whirlwind of peaks and valleys as draft crushes find their landing spots either cementing their status or finding themselves buried behind Todd Gurley.   This years draft was dominated by linemen with a particular run on what has been described as a “historic” defensive line class. The impact on skill players ...

We’re less than a week from the NFL Draft so Easter weekend seemed like the perfect time to gather together the Kickers Matter podcast hosts (minus Steve who was sunning himself in Florida)  and a couple of website contributors to pull together the first ever Kickers Matter Twitter Rookie Mock draft.   Based on a 12 team, single QB, 1 PPR league the picks rotated between Jason, Jamie, Jack and Allan, each selecting three of the twelve teams across two rounds of the draft. The results threw some fascinating results for anyone blind drafting before next weekend. The team will ...

Ideal Rookie Landing Spots Part 3

The final part of the ideal landing spots series takes a look at Penn State’s Miles Sanders, Kelvin Harmon of NC State, Andy Isabella of the Baltimore Ravens, Alexander Mattison of Boise State and Justice Hill of Oklahoma State.   Miles Sanders - Tampa Bay Buccaneers  Rumours out of off season activities in Tampa are building hype around Ronald Jones, last season’s second round pick out of USC but I’m struggling to imagine new Head Coach Bruce Arians trusting his running attack to Jones, Peyton Barber and the recently added Andre Ellington.   Sanders offers a three down skill set ...
