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.
The 2020 NFL draft is in the rearview mirror and dynasty fantasy owners are having their rookie drafts. During these drafts, dynasty owners have either helped or hurt the future of their teams. To help dynasty owners with their rookie drafts, six of The Scorecrow’s fantasy football writers have put together a list of their top rookies.
In this year’s NFL draft, there were serious NFL implications for the rookie class. Most players went to a good team though, where each should get opportunities this year or next year. It was hard finding rookie players that were losers, as everyone largely got the right fit. For this article, however, the winners are players whose fits, make sense, and have a chance to make a significant impact in their career. The losers are the players whom I would have preferred to go elsewhere.
After Thursday there are bound to be some talented players still on the board available for teams to pick on Friday at the start of the second round. My first round of this mock draft had six trades which dropped some talented players down the draft board. Let’s get started with round two.
We are almost there! The 2020 NFL draft is almost here and it’s going to be a draft like no other in NFL history. However, once the draft starts and the picks start rolling, everyone will forget about how the draft is being done remotely and focus on who is being picked and what team is trading up. Here at The Scorecrow, five of our NFL draft scouts (Givanni Damico, Mason Thompson, Connor Neal, Byron Jewell, Brady Podloski) have put together a list of their top-five at each position.
The 2020 NFL draft is a week away and it will be a draft like we’ve never seen before. No live events, teams unable to have a war room, and commissioner Rodger Goodell will be announcing the first round of the draft from his basement; all of this is because of COVID-19. Now hopefully, everyone is staying home and staying safe, but being under quarantine can drive a man (or six) bored out of his mind. So with extra time on our hands, six of our NFL draft experts (Mike Fanelli, Givanni Damico, Zach Gotlieb, Mason Thompson, Connor Neal, Brady Podloski) bring you a two-round mock draft.
It is an extremely difficult time in the world of sports right now. Absolutely NOTHING going on besides NFL free agency. I usually write my Fave Five for NBA DFS, but due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, every single sport has been shut down for the foreseeable future. Not to worry, I am giving you guys my favorite rookies to enter the 2020 NFL Draft. Continue reading →
Tampa Bay had a season that most probably expected. It wasn’t great, but it also didn’t send fans running back for refunds every week. They finished 7-9 on the year, mostly thanks to strong run defense and offensive weapons that made their quarterback look alright. However, offensive line play was pretty bad, and the run offense was pedestrian. The Bucs come into the draft having only seven picks this year, and these positions should be big target areas for Tampa Bay to address. Continue reading →
The Jets had a really up and down season. They had everything from bringing in generational player Le’Veon Bell, to a laughing stock of a coach, Adam Gase. However, as the season progressed, the Jets’ flaws and weaknesses peaked and opposing defenses began to target the Jets weakness. To make matters even worse, we had Sam Darnold out for half the season because of Mono, and our offensive line was abysmal at best. Bell had absolutely no room to run, Darnold had no time in the pocket, and to make things even worse, we had no playmakers on the outside.
The Buffalo Bills made a nice run during the 2019 season, finishing 10-6 and making the wildcard game. Unfortunately, they blew a lead to the Texans, so they are still winless in the playoffs in recent history. The culture is meshing well in Buffalo right now. The coaching staff has it figured out and this group of guys resembles a true team. They have a tough 2020 schedule, so they will need to add some talent, especially on offense, in order to compete next season.
The 2019 fantasy season has come and gone. Hopefully, you were able to bring home some titles and all the bragging rights (and money) that comes with it. However, the calendar has flipped to 2020 and it’s (probably) never too early to prepare for the upcoming fantasy season. The Scorecrow family is here to help fantasy owners get a jump start on the 2020 season, putting together another roundtable giving you their opinion on five fantasy football questions. Be sure to follow all of the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
We have already seen this matchup earlier in the season.
On October 26th, the 6-1 Badgers met the undefeated Buckeyes in Columbus. Wisconsin had been coming off of a stunning upset to the Fighting Illini after starting off the year incredibly hot while Ohio State continued their dominance over the rest of the country.
If Wisconsin beats Ohio State, would they make the college football playoff? Can the top-ranked defense hold up against Justin Fields and the Ohio State offense? Will Jack Coan be able to step up against the Buckeyes secondary if Jonathan Taylor is kept in check?
