Miami Heat Impressed: KZ Okpala

HEAT Impressed with KZ Okpala’s Progress

Jacari McRae | June 2nd, 2020

The Miami Heat have been one of the surprising NBA teams this season. Solid contribution from their rookies is a major reason why. Kendrick Nunn went from being undrafted to becoming the team’s starting point guard. Tyler Herro has been huge in the crunch time for the Heat this season. Chris Silva was the team’s backup center in the beginning of the season before falling out of the rotation.

Chicago Cubs Mount Rushmore Sammy Sosa

Chicago Cubs Mount Rushmore

Joey Ricotta | June 2nd, 2020

The Chicago Cubs franchise, which began in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings, has a long, tremendous amount of history. After winning two straight World Series titles in 1907 and 1908, the Cubs went through the longest drought in the history of North American sports, not winning another title, until the unthinkable happened and they won it all in 2016. A 108-year drought snapped. Because a lot of those players are still playing, and their stories are still being told, I decided to leave out anyone who could potentially make this list from that team. Continue reading

Grading the Packers 2017 Draft Class

Mason Thompson | May 30th, 2020

This year is a big year for most players drafted in the 2017 draft class. For those not drafted in the first round, this is the final year of their rookie contracts. The top 12 picks of the draft had three monumental trades, two star running backs, three receivers, and three quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, and, well, Mitchell Trubisky. Three tight ends were selected in the first round, while there was plenty of depth at running back and receiver in the later rounds.

It finally came up trumps for Hendricks driver Chase Elliott on Thursday night. After his hopes of victory were quickly dashed in the previous Cup Series race. Elliot was able to close the deal, only a week later. Again rain would not cooperate, pushing the race back another day. Joey Logano would lead the first portion of the event, capturing the first stage and 33 of the laps. Alex Bowman took the stage two win but would finish in 31st place. Continue reading

Texas Rangers Mount Rushmore Adrian Beltre

Texas Rangers Mount Rushmore

Euan Leith | May 29th, 2020

The Texas Rangers have been battling with the heat in the Lone Star state since 1972. After relocating from the nation’s capital, they went 25 years before experiencing their first taste of the postseason and 39 years until they won their first series in the postseason. However, the 2010s have been a lot kinder to the franchise. Back-to-back World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011 brought them two American League pennants, and they made the postseason five times in the last decade, making it the most successful period in the team’s history.

Five Bold Predictions for the San Francisco 49ers

Chris Gallagher | May 28th, 2020

After a season that saw them advance to the Super Bowl, the expectations for the San Francisco 49ers are sky-high heading into 2020. Leading for most of the game in that Super Bowl, the 49ers were unable to make the key plays down the stretch, allowing the opposing Kansas City Chiefs to come roaring back and ultimately win the game.

John Supowitz | May 27th, 2020

The White Sox are a long and historic franchise. Their origins go back to when they were known as the Sioux City Cornhuskers of the Western League, a minor league under the parameters of The National Agreement with the National League. Charles Comiskey would purchase the team in 1894, move to St. Paul Minnesota, and would rename them the Saints. Continue reading

2020 NHL Draft Profile: Quinton Byfield

Dom Lunardo | May 25th, 2020

Size, speed, strength, and skill. No that’s not an interesting piece of alliteration. Rather, these are just some of the adjectives which best describe draft-eligible centerman, and top prospect, Quinton Byfield. As draft day approaches, many NHL general managers are vigorously checking boxes and having their comprehensive data sheets ready to roll. With this being said, Byfield quite deservedly remains near the top of many pro scouts’ lists. So just how good is Quinton Byfield and what impact can we expect him to have at the NHL level?

Need For Speed: Closer Look at Eagles New Receivers

Alex Kielar | May 25th, 2020

The Philadelphia Eagles severely needed to upgrade their wide receiver corp going into the NFL Draft after Carson Wentz was throwing to nobodies and guys with butter over their hands all season last year. They definitely did that and more, focusing on speed, speed, and more speed, which plays very well to the strong arm of Wentz. They drafted three receivers and traded for Marquise Goodwin from San Francisco. Let’s dive deeper into the new additions and what the wide receiver depth chart could look like heading into the season. Continue reading

12 Buy Low Dynasty Quarterbacks

Mike Fanelli | May 25th, 2020

The 2020 NFL draft is a little more than a month behind us and rookie drafts are wrapping up. With everyone in love with their new shiny rookie players, now is the time to buy low on players coming off a bad year, veterans with something left in the tank, or cheap long shots. For quarterbacks it’s hard to gauge their trade value, whether you play in a single quarterback league or a super flex league. However, we all know playing in a one quarterback league is lame and super flex is the new standard. With that said, I’ve put together 12 quarterbacks who fit into five categories that dynasty fantasy owners should look into trading for, especially if you are hurting at the position.

Five Bold Predictions for the Houston Texans

Sam Schneider | May 24th, 2020

Memories are short among NFL fans. Many do not even recall that the Houston Texans finished the 2019 season with a division championship at 10-6 and beat an upstart Buffalo Bills team in the first round of the playoffs. Following that, they went up by 21 points in the divisional round before the eventual SBLIV Champion Kansas City Chiefs went on a rampage and sent them packing. A tumultuous offseason then erased those memories for fans outside of Texas.

Five Bold Predictions for the Denver Broncos

Chris Gallagher | May 23rd, 2020

The expectations surrounding the Denver Broncos are very high, heading into the 2020 season. After an offseason that saw them add A.J. Bouye, Jurrell Casey, and Melvin Gordon along with wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler in the draft, the Broncos are a team to watch. The 2019 season was a forgetful one for the Broncos as they finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season. Most of this was due to the ongoing quarterback carousel. Joe Flacco started the first eight games before getting injured and replaced by Brandon Allen. Ultimately, the Broncos would end the season winning four of their last five games under Drew Lock after he came off injured reserve and injected life into the Denver offense.

Five Bold Predictions for the Indianapolis Colts

Byron Jewell | May 23rd, 2020  

The Colts 2019 season was a wild one of sorts. From replacing Andrew Luck two weeks before the season, to starting 5-2 out the gate with Jacoby Brissett, to eventually miss the playoffs at 7-9 overall. Now with a new makeup on offense, along with some key players added on defense as well, this team is ready to make a strong push in the third-year under head coach Frank Reich.

Five Bold Predictions for the Carolina Panthers

Steve Seufert | May 22nd, 2020

The Carolina Panthers are going to be a fun team to watch moving forward. They took the risky route and hired Baylor head coach Matt Rhule away from the collegiate scene. One that he is most familiar with, Rhule doubled that down by hiring a 31-year-old coordinator to manage the offense. Let’s not forget they almost immediately signed Teddy Bridgewater to a $63 million dollar deal to become the starting quarterback of an NFL franchise. That is something he hasn’t done since 2015 when he suffered a gruesome knee injury while playing for the Minnesota Vikings. Needless to say, this will be fun.

Hold Your Horses on the Hype: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nickolas Loza | May 22nd, 2020 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason have improved by a wide margin, which they needed to do after a disappointing season with a record of 7-9 under Head Coach Bruce Arians. They went out and released their troubled Quarterback Jameis Winston, who despite throwing for 5,000 yards and 30 touchdowns, had one of the weirdest seasons ever. Winston became the first player in NFL history to throw for 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, truly a statistical anomaly.

Five Bold Predictions for the Los Angeles Rams

MJ Hurley | May 22nd, 2020

After dominating the NFC West division in 2017 and 2018, the Los Angeles Rams took a step back in 2019 with a 9-7 record, finishing third in the division. Although the Rams lost in disappointing fashion to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, they had high hopes for 2019 and beyond. Unfortunately, those hopes spiraled into a lackluster offense and a dysfunctional defense. After letting fan favorites Clay Matthews III and Todd Gurley walk in free agency, the Rams look to re-tool and reload for a return to the top of the NFC West. With this in mind, let’s check out five bold predictions for the Rams in the 2020 NFL Season.

Five Bold Predictions for the Atlanta Falcons

Mike Fanelli | May 21st, 2020

The 2019 NFL season was one of two halves for the Atlanta Falcons. After starting the season 1-7, many thought the Falcons were heading towards a top-five pick in the 2020 draft. However, after their week nine bye, the Falcons turned it around, going 6-2 over their last eight games and finished second in the NFC South with a 7-9 record. The second half turnaround saved head coach Dan Quinn’s job. No one believed the team could turn their season around last year, so here are my five bold predictions for the Falcons in 2020.
