Who should I draft? – AFC West

Welcome to the next chapter of my, ‘who should I draft?’ write-ups for the AFC divisions and today I’m going through the AFC West. Hopefully you read my last article on the AFC North and found it useful when it comes to your next fantasy draft. Just a quick reminder all ADP figures have been collated at half PPR. The first team I am looking at in the AFC West is the reigning superbowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. They finished the regular season with a 12-4 record before going on to lift the Lombardi trophy against the San Francisco …

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 …

State of the Franchises – NFC North

Fantasy Outlook By Division NFC North In recent years the NFC North has proven to be one of the most competitive and volatile divisions in the entire league. After early decade dominance by the Green Bay Packers the division has had a new winner every year since 2014. I imagine it’ll surprise nobody that only the Detroit Lions don’t have divisional win in the past decade, in fact it’s now nearly 30 years since they last won the division. After an impressive 13-3 season and a run to the NFC Championship game, Green Bay will enter the season as presumptive …

Who should I draft? – AFC North

During the next few weeks I will be looking at who you should be drafting for your fantasy team in a half PPR league and who is going to make that extra difference so you can win your league. Firstly, I will be looking at the AFC North and the main players who you need to draft plus some players who you can get cheaply later on in your draft. Firstly we have the Baltimore Ravens, a team who went 14-2 last season with a massive breakout from there QB Lamar Jackson. As wonderful as Jackson was if you want …

State of the Franchises – NFC East

Fantasy Outlook By Division NFC East Dallas Cowboys The Cowboys enter the season as the prohibitive favourites for the NFC East. They flattered to deceive last year, with the league’s number one offense somehow being unable to beat out the injury ravaged Eagles for the division title. After clinging to Jason Garrett well past the point it was clear to everyone that he wasn’t the answer, Jerry Jones has turned to former Green Bay Head Coach Mike McCarthy as he desperately attempts to find a path to reclaim his former glories. The offseason has seen significant reinforcements with an impressive …

The AFC South, it looks good for fantasy relevant players. But is it really? A few big names here and there. But are there enough fantasy points to win you a championship? Let’s dive in and see. Houston Texans QB DeShaun Watson Watson is considered a top 3 quarterback this year going into the season. And why not? He can the the ball with the best of the, he has the best wide receiver in the game (Hopkins), and he can run the ball if and when he wants to. Last year he showed us this with his 4,165 passing …

Oh man, there are a lot of big name players in the NFC South. But how many are Fantasy Relevant? Let’s a look and find out. New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees When will Brees not be fantasy relevant? All he does is throw the ball. He is still putting up big numbers year in and year out 3,992 yards (the first time as a Saint he has been under 4,000 yards) and 32 touchdowns just last year. Brees is just outside the top 5 QBs to most but don’t let that fool you come draft day. Draft him him …

This is probably the weakest division in the NFL for fantasy football relevant players, for redraft leagues. As the divisions break down continues you’ll see why. New England Patriots QB- Tom Brady He’s the greatest QB ever the play the game. EVER! He does amazing things on the field that wins the Patriots games. However, that doesn’t always get converted to the fantasy world. He’s getting older and his wide receivers aren’t getting any better. You can draft him late but be ready to draft a backup to, to possibly stream him. Last year he had 4,355 yards and 29 …

The NFC North provides some of the best fantasy relevant players this year. So let’s get going. Green Bay Packers QB- Aaron Rodgers He is a top 5 quarterback going into this season. A lot has to do with his 4,442 yards and 25 touchdowns from last year and he’s healthy. Some people will tell you to wait to take your quarterback until the later rounds. However, Rodgers is one of the quarterbacks you can take late 3rd round or any time in the 4th round. He is going to produce for you. And if you like to win, he …

Here is my continuation of breaking down each team and their fantasy relevant players. Here are the most fantasy relevant players in the AFC North. Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Big Ben finally came back last year after talking about retiring again. Good thing for you as he put up 5,129 passing yards and 34 touchdowns for your fantasy team. This year however will look a little different. He lost the best wide receiver in the game, Antonio Brown (traded to the Oakland Raiders), arguably a top 3 running back, Le’Veon Bell (signed with the New York Jet) and he …
