It’s the offseason and that means the NFL world is moving slowly. Actually, who am I kidding. Free agency is almost here and where players sign will have ripple impact throughout the league. Not only for Super Bowl odds next year but also for dynasty fantasy owners. Each signing changes the views for not only that player but the rest of the team he’s leaving and joining, as well as potential landing spots for rookies.

Entering the 2019 season, the Dallas Cowboys had Super Bowl expectations. After starting the season 3-0, averaging 32.3 points per game, Dak Prescott was looking like the second coming of Patrick Mahomes and well deserving of being the highest-paid quarterback in the league. However, the Cowboys struggled to be consistent on both sides of the ball the rest of the season and went 5-8 over their last 13 games, finishing 8-8 on the year. Unable to clinch the NFC East title in week 16, the Cowboys ended up missing the playoffs.

It was a year of high hopes for America’s Team in the Dallas Cowboys after dealing with mediocre seasons and early playoff exits for the past five years. With a weak schedule to start the season, Dallas rocketed out to a 3-0 start but quickly began to fall back to earth as the team would finish 8-8 on the year and second in the NFC East. There isn’t a better record to describe this team than .500 as the offense was potent at times in 2019 but they lacked consistency both on offense and defense causing them to crumble against better opponents.

Super Bowl LIV is just three weeks away and yesterday I broke down the complicated ins and outs of free agency. Today I’m going to break down the top upcoming free agents at several positions. A lot of these players will likely be given the franchise or transition tag assuming they don’t reach a long term deal before free agency begins.

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and found out Monday night that they made the playoffs. If you did be thankful for it and if you didn’t, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year, especially in dynasty leagues. With three weeks to go (unless you play in week 17 for some weird reason), every decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. To kick off the start of the fantasy playoffs we have a matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. Not only is this game critical to fantasy owners but to both franchises as they fight for the playoffs.

Ah yes, if you read the title, it tells you a lot about this game. The famed Wiz Khalifa song, “We Dem Boyz“, has been a rallying tune amongst fans since the song came out in 2014. No, not the fight song, simply a rallying tune. Of course, like any Cowboys-related content, it’s been memed. Whether or not it’s funny is up to the reader.

The Lions came into this game thinking that a Chicago offense lead by Mitchell Trubisky would at least put a band-aid on the problems that were on the defensive side. It turned out not to be true. While Trubisky only threw for 145 yards, the Lions secondary allowed him to throw for three touchdowns, and that’s all the Bears needed in a 20-13 victory over Detroit.

The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is just two days away. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 wide receivers for the 2019 season.

The Dallas Cowboys’ 2018 was a journey of two halves. In the first half of the season, they went 3-4 and the offense was struggling, scoring more than 20 points in just two of those games. Then, Jerry Jones pulled a Cowboys’ like move and acquired former Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper for a 2019 first-round pick. After trading for Cooper, the Cowboys went on to win seven of their last nine games to make the playoffs and win the NFC East title. Continue reading

With a flurry of offseason moves, multiple first-round picks and a move to Las Vegas on the horizon, the one familiar staple within the Oakland Raider organization will be it’s starting quarterback. Going into his 6th season as starting quarterback for the Raiders will be Derek Carr. Continue reading

The Dallas Cowboys last season were a surprise of sorts, they missed the playoffs the year before, but this year they redeemed themselves, improving from a 9-7 record the year before to a 10-6 record. This was enough to win the NFC East and get a birth into the playoffs, where they managed to win a game against the Seahawks, and then lose in the NFC Divisional Playoff game to the eventual Super Bowl participant Los Angeles Rams. During the season, they traded their first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for WR Amari Cooper.

The 2018 season was like night and day for the Dallas Cowboys. After starting the season 3-4, the Cowboys traded for Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper and the whole season turned around. With Cooper on the roster, the Cowboys won seven of their last nine games and took home the NFC East title for the second time in three years. After winning their home playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, the Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams 30-22 in the divisional round.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. Week 14, the fantasy football playoffs. Congratulations to those of us who have reached our first goal. Now we must re-dedicate ourselves and re-focus all of our energy onto the next three weeks. It is win or go home, and I don’t know about you, but I want to win. There is one very important rule when preparing for an epic playoff run: don’t get cute. Julio Jones only had three fantasy points last week, but this week’s matchup vs the Packers should be a shootout between two bad defenses. Start Julio Jones. And don’t get thrown by a matchup and start a much less talented player in a good matchup over an elite player with a bad one. Matchups are a factor, but not the only factor.

In a game they desperately needed in order to gain control in the NFC East, the Dallas Cowboys came up big in claiming a 31-23 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving day. They’ve won three straight games, since a 28-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans, where they looked dead in the water. Amari Cooper had a bit of a coming out party, contributing back-to-back third-quarter touchdowns.

This is 2018’s last devastating bye-week as six teams are on bye. With the playoffs looming right around the corner these next three games will determine if you are going to be challenging for a title or if you are going to looking forward to 2019. These next three games are the most important of the season and it is more crucial than ever before that we make the right lineup decisions. So sit tight as I tell you who needs to be on your starting roster this week and who you need to bench in order to avoid the devastating bust performance that could end your season. The following start and sits are recommended based on their matchups this week.

I’m sure Amari Cooper is a great person. I’m sure he is very giving and is heavily involved in his community. But as a fantasy player on my team, I hate him. I don’t hate him as a person, just as a fantasy player. I drafted him in a dynasty league his rookie season and was rewarded with over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. But in the championship game, he got me two catches for ten yards ahhhhhh.
