The 2018 Chicago Bears finished with the league’s number one overall defense, an insane amount of takeaways, and cruised to their first NFC North Division crown since 2010. In the first round of the playoffs, a “double doink” heard around the world, brought the Bears season to a screeching halt. This season, the Bears will be starting with a new kicker and a whole lot of motivation following their early exit. Will they be able to bounce back from the rough ending to an otherwise incredible season? Take a walk with me as I attempt to crack their 53-man roster and what to expect from them this season.

With 32 teams in the midst of regular-season preparation via training camp practices, we often see the hype for rookies spin out of control. It seems like every year without fail, NFL Twitter gets a hold of a couple clips of a corner making a nice interception, or a running back juking a linebacker and leaving them in the dust, and proclaims them as the next great thing. I’m here to look at seven players that were drafted in April that have seen a ton of chatter, and to give my predictions on if they will prove worthy from day one.
The 2019 NFL season is right around the corner! The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is tonight, meaning we have just five weeks till opening night. That time will (hopefully) go by quickly. In the meanwhile, it is never too early to get started on building the ultimate fantasy football team. To help with that, the Scorecrow family has put together a mini-series with a handful of writers giving you their opinions on five questions.

To put it mildly, it has been an underwhelming couple of years for Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson, but in 2019 he is going to remind the NFL that he can still hang with the best of them. Fantasy owners are still salivating over Robinson’s 2015 season, where he dropped 1,400 yards and 14 TDs to finish as the WR6, but he is finally going to pay-off for those who give him one last chance.

This exercise is meant to look at five teams across the NFL that should have long Super Bowl windows. This article will ignore teams that have found the fountain of youth (looking at you, New England) and teams that are unproven but have potential (i.e., the Ravens if Lamar Jackson makes a big leap).

Each year, an exciting new class of prospects enters the National Football League and fantasy players become scouts as they attempt to identify that cornerstone player for their dynasty team. It is essential to become acquainted with this new crop of talent in order to gain the upper hand on your league mates.

Not having a pick until the third round of the draft can change the way a fan views that particular draft. That’s been the case for most Bears fans as they were expecting to wait until pick number 87 before they made their first selection. Instead, fans only had to wait until pick 73 because the Bears decided to trade up to get their guy. Nothing new for GM Ryan Pace, but how should we value this year’s picks? Continue reading
