It was supposed to be a deep Super Bowl run this season, but it ended abruptly at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings for the second time in three years as the New Orleans Saints lost in the Wild Card round 26-20 in overtime. Despite finishing 13-3, they were the third seed by virtue of losing the tiebreakers with the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers. Let’s take a look back at the season and also what lies ahead for the Saints.
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.

The New Orleans Saints will host the Minnesota Vikings at 1:05 ET today. The Saints won the NFC South with a 13-3 record while the Vikings hold the sixth seed finishing 10-6. This will be a rematch of the divisional round game from two years ago and give the Saints a chance to avenge the “Minnesota Miracle”.

The end of the football regular season always brings me a mixture of emotions. On one hand, I’m sad and depressed that the season is already over. On the other hand, the playoffs are underway and we are now getting closer to the best and most anticipated football games of the season. As YOU are anticipating, let’s stop rambling and get to the picks for this potentially wild, Wild Card Round. Continue reading

This Monday Night matchup is a rematch of Super Bowl XLIV. The Saints were able to win that matchup and I expect the same thing to happen in this one. The Colts, however, are in a must-win scenario as they are basically eliminated from the playoffs baring some crazy scenarios. The Saints need to win to keep up with the other three (Seahawks, 49ers, and Packers) 11-3 teams in the NFC for playoff home-field advantage. Here are my top players in this matchup. Continue reading

Alright, it’s time again to cook up some winning lineups after some solid picks last week. Hopefully, 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. Continue reading

Week 10 is tough because there are six teams on their bye, so fantasy owners will likely be missing one key piece from their rosters. The most interesting storyline of the week will be the return of Patrick Mahomes. Can he regain his MVP form? Let’s navigate through this challenging week – on to the rankings!

The story of week seven was the re-emergence of Aaron Rodgers as an elite fantasy quarterback. This week features an absolute smash spot for Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans. We’ll also see Kirk Cousins look to continue his hot streak in a revenge game against the Washington Redskins. We’re almost at the half-way point of the season and hopefully, you are contending in your leagues. If not, it’s time to turn the season around. On to the rankings!

Almost every year, fantasy owners picking early in the first round target bell cow running backs as they are worth their weight in gold. This year there are four running backs in that group: Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Ezekiel Elliott. A month ago, these four running backs were being drafted all in the top four picks according to Fantasy Football Calculator. However, since Zeke is currently holding out, his ADP has dropped down a little to 1.05 and is the fifth player being taken on average, behind the other three running backs and DeAndre Hopkins.

To say the 2018 season did not end the way the New Orleans Saints wanted is an understatement. Much like 2017, one play seemed to derail the Super Bowl dreams of the Saints. Although they did get a little closer last year, making the NFC Championship, the result was nevertheless disappointing. As a Saints fan, I won’t go into what happened the past two years as it is still a little painful as I’m sure it is for my fellow WhoDats. What I will say is this: They are poised to get that ring and put Drew Brees along with Peyton Manning and John Elway as great quarterbacks going out on top.
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. Be sure to follow all of the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

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 Los Angeles Rams come off a run-heavy game where they decided to let C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley take over for a 30-22 win against the Cowboys to get to the NFC Championship game. It wasn’t as easy for the New Orleans Saints, who had to rally from down fourteen against Nick Foles and the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles to eke out a win on a last-minute interception just to host this NFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 3:05 ET on FOX.

When these two teams last faced off in New Orleans in week 11, the Philadelphia Eagles played their worst game in recent memory, getting run out of the Superdome, 48-7. We should expect the Eagles to be able to do a much better job at scoring with the New Orleans Saints this time. The Saints had a much different road to the playoffs, finishing up the regular season 13-3 and grabbing the number one seed. Philadelphia, on the other hand, had to dig themselves out of a 4-6 hole, winning five of the last six and beating the Bears in the wild-card round.

So here’s the latest list of top 10 runners and pass catchers who can help fill in for these bye week superstars.
