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.
The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a season that fell off the rails, after losing a rookie running back to an injury that shelved him for the last month of the season. The Raiders were primed for a wildcard spot prior to Jacobs’ injury, as the Chiefs had the AFC West Division all but locked up when the calendar flipped to December. Here are my five bold predictions for the Las Vegas Raiders. Continue reading →
Everyone knew that the Raiders would be active in the offseason this year. The third year of the Jon Gruden tenure, as well as the second under Mike Mayock, was a big one. The Raiders had a great draft last year but had a good amount of cap space to spend in free agency. Well, they have. The first few days of free agency have brought in veteran players to help all over the defense. Let’s take a look at each of the signings and what the new additions mean to the team.
The matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Tennessee Titans features two teams with 2-4 records. Last season’s matchup was a closely run game at Wembley, London. Both teams are desperate for wins as the season approaches the halfway point.
There’s no shortage of talking points from Week 6 of the NFL. This edition of my notebook features several quarterbacks making the headlines for different reasons. The Los Angeles Chargers stink, Dan Quinn’s seat is hot and the Carolina Panthers pound the ground in London. Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate, and a brilliant San Francisco 49ers performance concludes this edition of Woz’s NFL notebook. Continue reading →
With four weeks in the books, we are a quarter of the way through the 2019 fantasy season. Several big-name players have been lost to injury but new fantasy stars are in the making. To help fantasy football players with their roster construction, three of our writers have provided some insight on which players they would start, would sit, and consider a sleeper for week five. Be sure to follow all of them on twitter and ask any of The Scorecrow’s fantasy writers for fantasy advice.
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.
Week one of the NFL season always has breakout performances, with some of them being unforeseen. In this article, I will provide you with my top standout streaming options for QB, TE, D/ST, and Kicker, going forward into week two. The rostered percentages I present in this are pulled from ESPN Fantasy. Continue reading →
It was a rough first week for the new-look Cleveland Browns as they fell to the Tennessee Titans by a score of 43-13. There is no way around it, this was an embarrassing, and unacceptable performance from the Browns.
The Tennessee Titans would overcome early struggles on offense and several injuries to make a late push. It all came come down to the final week of the season, for a win or go home playoff opportunity against the rival Indianapolis Colts. They ended up losing out to the Colts and finishing the year with a respectable record of 9-7.
The team made a number of well-thought-out moves over the course of the offseason, that should help strengthen them on both sides of the ball. Most notable was the signing of highly sought after guard Rodger Saffold, to bolster that leaky offensive line. The unit, in fact, showed quite a bit of decline allowing 12 more sacks in 2018, as opposed to the season previous. Saffold has managed to stay healthy, only missing two games in the last three seasons.
The 2018 season got off to a great start for the Tennessee Titans as they began the year 3-1. However, they struggled as the season went on as the offense stalled at times and the injury bug took its toll. Marcus Mariota struggled to stay upright, getting sacked 42 times and he had just one receiver with more than 470 receiving yards. Continue reading →
The 2019 NFL draft is just around the corner and teams are putting the finishing touches on their player evaluations. Every year we see several surprising picks that come out of nowhere like when the Seattle Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in the first last year. Everyone loves mock drafts so here is a seven round mock draft predicting every Tennessee Titans’ pick. Continue reading →
The Tennessee Titans just missed the playoffs last season after losing to the Indianapolis Colts in the final week 33-17. They finished the season with a record of 9-7, overcoming early struggles on offense and several injuries to make a late push. Tennessee’s offensive rankings in 2018 weren’t impressive, as they were ranked 25th in total yards, 29th in passing, and 27th in points. They then lost their offensive coordinator this offseason when Matt Lafleur signed on to be the next Green Bay Packers head coach. Mike Vrabel, promoted tight ends assistant Arthur Smith to fill the vacated position.
Here we are. It’s the final week of the fantasy regular season. This season has come and gone in the blink of an eye and sadly it will be the end of the line for some of us. For others, this week means everything. Win or go home. In or out. Hopefully, last week’s options brought you closer to the playoffs and hopefully this week’s options lock you into the playoff picture. Let’s check out those options from last week and then look ahead to Week 13. By the way, David Moore my boom play from last week went off this week, as per usual with my deep selections.
Marcus Mariota sustained a re-injury to his ulnar nerve in his throwing arm on Sunday. This occurred when he fell onto the elbow. Basically, he experienced a contusion to the ulnar nerve, funny bone, which resulted in recurrence of the numbness and tingling in his throwing arm.
Week 11 will offer some new names to the streaming conversation of fantasy football. Streaming has been tough this year as most people who wanted to stream a quarterback every week probably settled on keeping their successful streamer long term like Mitch Trubisky, Jared Goff, and maybe even Andy Dalton to name a few. The tight end landscape has been brutal all year and with key injuries, more and more tight ends are surpassing the 50% owned percentage making them ineligible to be streamed.
We are officially one month away from the fantasy playoffs so it is time to get in those waiver wire pickups and make those trades that are going to launch your team into the playoffs with a vengeance. There are still some high profile players available that need to be scooped up this week so do not miss out on what could be your last opportunity to add some weekly starters. The following waiver wire adds reflect a $100 Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB).
Marcus Mariota led the Tennessee Titans to the divisional round in the playoffs last year. The Titans showed some potential. Can they build on it or will they falter under the pressure of high expectations?
The 2018 offseason saw the Tennessee Titans say goodbye to former All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray. Over the past two seasons, the now-retired Murray had split time with former Alabama Crimson Tide star running back Derrick Henry. The two offered a versatile one-two punch for a young up-and-coming Titans offense. With the release of Murray, it was expected that Henry would assume the lead back duties for the Titans. However, shortly into free agency, the team from “Music City” signed former New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis to a 4-year $19.8 million contract. Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur referred to Henry and Lewis as “1A and 1B” in the Titans backfield.
