Pardon my hesitation, but fans of the New England Patriots and fantasy football players should temper their enthusiasm about the return of Josh Gordon. As the saying goes: Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. We’ve been down this road before with Gordon, and while he’s clearly tried to kick his addiction (no pun intended), he always seems to go back. Continue reading →
The 2018 NFL season for the New England Patriots ended with their second Super Bowl victory in three years as they defeated the Los Angles Rams 13-3 in one of the most boring Super Bowls in league history. However, the Patriots will take it, pretty, ugly, or otherwise. This team has a true one game at a time mentality and it showed early on in the season. The Patriots started off the season slow, going just 1-2 in their first three games, with loses to Jacksonville and Detroit on the road. However, the team finished strong, winning 10 of their final 13 games.
Football is back after a five and a half month hiatus! All 32 teams have played a preseason game.

Tom Brady over his 19 year NFL career has been one of the faces of the NFL. He has posted as of the end of the 2018-2019 season; 70,514 Passing Yards, 517 TDs, 171 INTs, and a passer rating of 97.6 while winning six Super Bowls and winning 207 regular-season games. He is in most peoples circles one of the greatest if not the greatest quarterback to ever play the game of football, and possibly the greatest all-around football player of all-time. In this article, we’ll be comparing Tom Brady’s eight healthy seasons to his other nine healthy seasons. We won’t be counting 2000 because he was a backup and only took kneel-down snaps and only threw three times and 2008 because he tore his ACL in the first game of the season. So we’ll be comparing 2001-2010 and 2011-2019. I will also be going over which one I think is better and giving my reasons. Continue reading →
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.
In today’s position battle, we will be discussing two young receivers in Marquez Valdes-Scantling of the Green Bay Packers, and N’Keal Harry of the New England Patriots. In 12-team PPR leagues, both players are going in the ninth round per Fantasy Football Calculator with Valdes-Scantling as the WR40 and Harry as the WR43. In his rookie year, Valdes-Scantling finished the year as the WR65. If Harry’s junior season at Arizona State had been his rookie season in the NFL, he would’ve finished as the WR15 for the 2018 season.
