Early 2020 Win/Loss Projections: NFC South 

Brady Podloski, Frank Ammirante, Sam Schneider, Joey Ricotta  | May 9th, 2020

The NFC South is arguably one of the most offensive driven divisions. As well, each offense has improved over the offseason, but the biggest addition is Tom Brady. With Brady and other quarterbacks like Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, and Teddy Bridgewater, the division has no clear winner. With the extra playoff spot open, this division could have three teams compete in the playoffs. With the 2020 schedule set, there are some significant games each NFC South team will play. With that said, this is an eight-part series where our Scorecrow NFL Analysts do an early prediction of the wins and losses of each team. We projected all 256 games and have the winners and losers of each division! Continue reading

Brady Podloski | April 23rd, 2020 

The NFL draft is TODAY(!!!!), and for Dynasty and Superflex players it is an important few days. These are the days where everyone sees where the quarterback will go and if they will have an opportunity to entrench themselves in a starting role. These four quarterbacks will be significantly influenced by the draft. Where each goes and the round they go in, will dictate if they are legitimate starters on your fantasy roster.

New Orleans Saints Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Dale Money | April 18th, 2020

After suffering another early playoff exit at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, the New Orleans Saints decided to still put their faith into Drew Brees this offseason. Brees will stick around for at least two more years at a cost of $50 million dollars, making him the 12th highest paid quarterback. In deciding to take a discount, Brees will be doing the Saints an enormous favor as far as cap space is concerned, with running back Alvin Kamara looking for a new deal after the 2020 season.

New Orleans Saints Free Agency Recap

John Lepore | March 23rd, 2020

Looking Back at Malcolm Jenkins' Eagles Career

Alex Kielar | March 21st, 2020 

The Philadelphia Eagles decided to let Malcolm Jenkins walk, not paying him the money he wanted. On Wednesday, Jenkins signed back with the team that drafted him, the New Orleans Saints for four years, $32 million with $16.5 million guaranteed. Jenkins obviously would have helped the Eagles this year, but they were more worried about the last year or two of a four year deal. At the end of the deal he will be turning 36, and he could start to lose his swagger; the Eagles also want to get younger.

New Orleans Saints Pre Free Agency Seven Round Mock

John Lepore | March 1st, 2020

Again, the New Orleans Saints‘ season ended before the Super Bowl. And for the second time in three seasons, it was at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings on the last play of the game. They finished 13-3 but missed out on a bye week due to a tough early-season loss to the Los Angeles Rams (the game Drew Brees got hurt in), a horrible loss to the division rival Atlanta Falcons in early November, and with their fate in their hands, lost a shootout to the eventual NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers.

New Orleans Saints 2019 Season Recap

John Lepore | January 23rd, 2020

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.

Monday Night Football Week 15

Brandon Braasch  | December 16th, 2019

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.

Woz’s Notebook NFL Week 8: 49ers Drop a 50 on the Panthers

John Woz, Jr. | October 28th, 2019

The 7-0 San Francisco 49ers continue on the rich vein of form, and rookie Nick Bosa once again showed why he was a top draft pick. Bosa had an unbelievable game with three sacks in yesterday’s 51-13 demolition over the 4-3 Carolina Panthers.  The league’s basement teams are still losing, and the Cincinnati Bengals may win the right for the first overall draft pick.

Week Eight NFL Picks: Spreads, Props and More

Mike Fanelli & Givanni Damico | October 26th, 2019

Thursday night’s game between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings wasn’t as entertaining as we had hoped. The Vikings won the game 19-9 as the two teams combined for just one touchdown but seven field goals. In most places, the line was Vikings -16.5 and they didn’t come close to covering it. Despite Case Keenum leaving the game at halftime because of a concussion, the Vikings outscored the Redskins by just three points in the second half. Needless to say, anyone who backed the Vikings -16.5 was left very disappointed in Kirk Cousins and the Vikings’ effort in the second half.

Detroit Lions Week 6 Recap- Oh Me, Oh My!

Tom Greene | October 15th, 2019

If you’re reading this, you’re in a mood. Either an amazing mood, as the Packers walk away with a 23-22 victory over the Lions, or a mood as only Stephen A. Smith could describe, which is the mood of most Lions fans-including yours truly. We feel like the Herman’s Hermits line that was in this title, “Oh me, oh my”, we’re Leaning on the Lamp Post. It’s something that happens year after year with this team. From the batted ball against Seattle to the 10-second runoff against Atlanta, and do I even mention the picked up pass interference flag against Dallas in the playoffs? The list goes on and on.

The Walsh Way – Week 5 DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | October 5th, 2019

GAME THEORY

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. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 4 Recap- Chiefs Outduel Lions

Tom Greene | September 30th, 2019 

Ah yes, it was a duel of top-tier QBs in Detroit this afternoon. Matthew Stafford took on Patrick Mahomes in a battle that Lions fans won’t forget, but may want to. A day that looked promising early, and even late, turned for the worse as Darrel Williams crossed the goal line to seal the deal for the Chiefs. Continue reading

NFL Power Rankings: Week Three

Raul Vazquez | September 24th, 2019

Saints vs Texans: Key Matchups

John Lepore | September 9th, 2019

Tonight the New Orleans Saints open up their 2019 season against the Houston Texans. The last time these two teams met was in November of 2015. In that game in Houston, the Saints managed only two field goals and the Texans got two touchdown passes from Brian Hoyer (to Ryan Griffin and Cecil Shorts) and a touchdown run by Alfred Blue to secure the 24-6 victory. New Orleans also hasn’t won their opener since 2013. Tonight will be a bit different.

Monday Night Football DFS

Brandon Braasch | September 9th, 2019

The first weekend of football has been crazy. We started off with a slug-fest on Thursday Night, with the Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears. Then came the early game Sunday slate, which was wild and resulted in the Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans, and Kansas City Chiefs all putting up 40+ points. The afternoon games even gave us a tie, when the Arizona Cardinals came back to force OT vs the Detroit Lions. Who knows what Monday’s games will bring us? Let’s see how the two Monday Night game slate looks from a DFS perspective:  Continue reading

Fantasy Battle: Which Running Back Should go 1.01?

Mike Fanelli | Aug 24th, 2019 

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.
