The Jaguars had a terrific 2017 NFL season which ended in an AFC championship game loss to the New England Patriots. Blake Bortles led the Jaguars to a 10-6 record and was heavily assisted by breakout rookie running back Leonard Fournette. In 2018 and 2019, the Jaguars were exceedingly below average, disappointing the NFL with the talented roster that they had. Bortles left Jacksonville, and Nick Foles was unable to save football there, which led to the emergence of Gardner Minshew III at the end of 2019. With that in mind, let’s check out 5 bold predictions for the Jaguars in 2020. Continue reading →
Heading into the 2019 NFL season, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ future looked bright. They just signed Nick Foles for $88 million dollars. Foles was expected to be everything the Jaguars needed to make a playoff push and return to their 2017 form. That quickly changed when Foles was nearly immediately injured in week one. After that, rookie Gardner Minshew took over. Although Minshew did very good for a rookie thrown into a bad situation, it still wasn’t enough.
If you were booted from season-long fantasy football playoffs last week, have no fear. DFS doesn’t care whether you lost last week or not. That’s the beauty of it. With that said, welcome. For those of you returning readers that have been grinding it out all season, you know the drill. Let’s get it cracking with some money plays for Week 15. Continue reading →
Getting all three phases on the same page has been a real issue for the Chargers this year. Week 14 gives the Bolts their best chance of a ‘W’ before their season concludes. There are several ways to sum up the Chargers this season. A frustrating string of close losses is an enigma. For example, Mike Williams leads the NFL in yards per catch over the last four weeks, but he hasn’t found the End Zone. An explosive offense is missing, especially in the running game. It’s the coaching staff and the roster who can truly answer why the Bolts are 4-8? Continue reading →
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. However, you aren’t here to reminisce about last week.
All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. Its also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups.
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. We had a solid week, for the most part, correctly highlighting Michael Thomas, Will Fuller, Leonard Fournette, and the Carolina Panthers defense as solid plays. However, you aren’t here to reminisce about last week. Continue reading →
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. Prepare for a humblebrag. I had a terrific week, cashing in over 97% of my cash game contests. Which means absolutely nothing when it comes to this week. Continue reading →

Well, it is time for week three. If you thought the last couple of Thursday night games were offensively rough, then wait for this one. In 2018 when the Tennessee Titans faced the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville, the final score was 9-6. The Titans ultimately ended up winning the field goal battle. Here are my top DFS picks for the Titans vs Jaguars Showdown contest.
I’ll be the first to admit when I’m wrong and last Thursday I was awful with my fantasy takes. My bad, hopefully, I’m better this week. Good news is if you’re a fan of low scoring and tough defense, this game is for you. For the rest of us, it’s the perfect game to waste on a Thursday night. The Tennessee Titans travel to Jacksonville to take on their division rival Jaguars in a battle of run-first offenses.
Well, this is it. This is what we’ve all been waiting for. NFL football is back baby! Of course, we had the Chicago versus Green Bay game on Thursday night to kick off the season, but that was simply a tease. A low scoring defensive battle with one touchdown over the course of the game. Sure, it was a good football game (not the outcome I wanted being a Bears fan), but not at all what fantasy players were hoping for either. There will be a lot more action and points today, guaranteed. Cash games have been an area we can find an edge when it pertains to daily fantasy football. Every year new players jump aboard the always rolling DFS train. Luckily for you, most of the new players will be applying what they know about season-long fantasy into DFS. That’s not a terrible strategy, but it can lead to bad habits or skipping over important details. By putting in the extra effort and taking in as much as you can, you’re already winning. With all of that said, let’s kick off this season the right way. Take a stroll with me and look at some options to target for Week 1 DFS Cash Games. Continue reading →
First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin Walsh, and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. I have been playing DFS since DraftStreet still existed. This is my first season writing for The Scorecrow, and this is my first tournament rundown. I have written about DFS before, so hopefully, that shouldn’t be too much of an issue. I am a huge football and hockey fan, and I am always so engulfed in fantasy sports from September until January. I plan to give you a peek inside what I have going on in my head and hopefully lead you to some DFS success (as well as myself, of course), but enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.
After taking the New England Patriots to the wire, in the AFC title game two seasons ago expectations were high going into last season, however, after an encouraging 3-1 start it would all end up going completely south. Losing seven straight games, it wasn’t until December that they were able to win another one. Inevitably they would finish 5-11 and in the basement of the division.
In those final 5 games, they were kept under 20 points. Things do seem to be trending in the right direction, however. It began in January when they hired John De Filippo as offensive coordinator, and only two months later Blake Bortles was sent packing after 5 seasons in Jacksonville. Continue reading →
Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons Kicker, Charles Clay – Buffalo Bills Tight End, Leonard Fournette – Jacksonville Jaguars Running Back lead a long list of NFL players who are or have battled hamstring issues during their career. Some players return after a week or two and some end up on IR. What makes hamstrings so difficult to pinpoint a time to return to play?
Every year we go into the football season with hopes and dreams for our teams. Whether they are realistic or not, every team starts the season 0-0. Here are some bold predictions from our NFL and Fantasy Football writers. Many of these are longshots. Some are attainable in the right circumstances. They are all bold. Let’s see if they come true.
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a ten point lead on Tom Brady and the Patriots on the road and looked on their way to a Super Bowl before some questionable calls. Can they replicate the same type of season or more success this season?
The running back position once again reigns supreme in fantasy football. There seemed to be a trend leaning toward wide receiver dominance given the consistency of the guys at the top, but the elite play of the NFL’s best running backs over the past few seasons quickly put a stop to that. When preparing for your draft, you want to separate your running backs into tiers so you can find the best values without sacrificing production. Here is the fourth installment of Blood, Sweat, and Tiers. The first article on the rookies is here. The second on my likes and dislikes is here. Tier 4 is here.
