WHO SHOULD I DRAFT? – AFC SOUTH

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.

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.

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 …
