It’s a brand new season and the New York Jets are back and ready to compete this year. With Tom Brady out of the AFC East, the division is wide open. A revamped offensive line is going to do anything they can to protect Sam Darnold and put the team in a position to win week in and week out. Hopefully this year Darnold won’t catch mono and he could have a healthy and productive 2020 NFL season.
The AFC East has been dominated by the New England Patriots for the last 20 years, however, it is the end of an era. With the departure of Tom Brady, and the rise of young quarterbacks- Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, and Tua Tagovailoa – the division looks to be promising and entertaining for years to come. With the 2020 schedule set, there are some significant games each AFC East 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 have projected all 256 games here and have the winners and losers of each division, and you can find all of the other projections here. Continue reading →
With the 15th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama. The Broncos get the best wide receiver in the greatest wide receiver draft class in NFL history. After a legendary run at Alabama, Jeudy heads to Denver where he will form a one-two punch with Pro Bowl wide receiver Courtland Sutton. Let’s dig a little deeper on Denver’s newest wideout.
Joe Douglas went into this draft with something to prove. There were a lot of different routes that the Jets could have gone, but I think, for the most part, they took the correct route. Let’s get into it.Continue reading →
Well, folks, the NFL Draft is now behind us, and it was quite the interesting three days. There were quite a few surprises and players fell way farther than anyone expected. Given that, let’s go over the best steals of all three rounds. Time to get into it. Continue reading →
The New York Jets made substantial additionals in free agency. They have completely redesigned their offensive line, adding the four new starters in Alex Lewis, Greg Van Roten, Connor McGovern, and George Fant while adding depth with interior offensive lineman Josh Andrews. Other notable additions include Breshad Perriman, Patrick Onwuasor, Brian Poole, and Pierre Desir. The free agency period has primarily filled the outstanding needs the team had, mostly being the offensive line. With the departure of Robby Anderson, signing Perriman fills the deep threat role. However, there is still a need for a reliable and dangerous wide receiver. As well, there has been a perennial need at the edge position, but there isn’t the depth in the edge class to fill the need.
With this being the first offseason for Joe Douglas as the head man for the Jets, we are continuing to find out what his philosophy is to build a team. He has had a price in mind for free agents and has refused to go above his offer which is refreshing after Mike Maccagnan continued to throw out large contracts. We’ve also seen that Douglas has thrown a bunch of one-year deals to players to maintain cap flexibility and build the core of the franchise through the draft.
The Jets brought in new general manager Joe Douglas this offseason and have left him with a rebuilding squad with a ton of needs but a budding young quarterback. In order to capitalize on Sam Darnold‘s rookie deal, Douglas and the front office will have to help him out along the offensive line and provide more in terms of offensive playmakers. Continue reading →
The Jets had a really up and down season. They had everything from bringing in generational player Le’Veon Bell, to a laughing stock of a coach, Adam Gase. However, as the season progressed, the Jets’ flaws and weaknesses peaked and opposing defenses began to target the Jets weakness. To make matters even worse, we had Sam Darnold out for half the season because of Mono, and our offensive line was abysmal at best. Bell had absolutely no room to run, Darnold had no time in the pocket, and to make things even worse, we had no playmakers on the outside.
The New York Jets had a pretty monster offseason. Bringing in Le’Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley, and Adam Gase. There were a lot of high hopes for gang green. It was a pretty rough beginning however as the Jets began the season 2-8 in their first 10 games. Jets lost a heart breaker to the winless 0-9 Miami Dolphins team and then lost later in the season to the 0-12 Cincinnati Bengals. Continue reading →
Welcome back to the GPP/Tournament Plays article for Week 17. Let’s start by saying, any picks used or mentioned for cash games can be played in tournaments. I think that’s an important thing to know and can sometimes get confused whenever the two are mentioned separately. For that reason, I’ve tried to avoid mentioning my cash game plays for this article. Continue reading →
The football regular season is all but over. Welcome to the final week of the regular season where things get preseason-ish and downright wacky. The plan needs to be attacking players who we feel will have solidified roles, as many teams will be resting its starters for the postseason, or seeing what they have out of some of their youngsters for next year. Continue reading →
The football regular season is coming to a close, and with that, we need to make the most of our last remaining chances to take home some decent money before the playoffs. 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 →
Two weeks to go in the 2019 NFL season and the playoff picture is starting to come together. The most important game this week is between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. The winner of that game will control their destiny in the NFC East division race. With several critical games this week now is the time to put down some money to buy extra Christmas presents.
Tonight’s matchup should be a blowout. That doesn’t mean you can’t still win money as the Baltimore Ravens face off against the New York Jets. The Jets have been super inconsistent this year and the Ravens have dominated a lot of teams this season. This will be a battle of one of the best run defenses against one of the best run offenses. Here are my top players in this matchup.
One week of the fantasy playoffs down, two more to go. Hopefully, you found out Monday night that your team advanced to the second round or enjoyed your first-round bye but now the decision on who the start and who to sit is even more critical. Tonight’s contest between the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens is the last Thursday night game in 2019 and the NFL couldn’t have picked a more one-sided matchup. The Ravens are trying to lock up the AFC North and a first-round bye while the Jets are already planning vacations and looking forward to the offseason.
Hard to believe its week 14 of the NFL season already. Where has the time gone? Only four weeks left before the season will be over and the playoff push will begin for the select teams who are lucky enough to punch their golden ticket this season. For fantasy players, playoffs in most leagues get underway this week and injuries will play an even bigger role in assembling the ideal team. Without further adieu let’s take a look at some of the injuries that may play a part in real life and fantasy football outcomes. Continue reading →
Fantasy football playoffs are just beginning for some of you. For others, the season came to an abrupt halt. Maybe that’s why you’re here, to find success playing DFS. 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 14. Continue reading →
Week 12 of the NFL produced several unpredictable results. There were rare wins for the Redskins, Jets, and Buccaneers. Two NFC powerhouses dominated Sunday’s headlines. Baltimore made a big statement on Monday night. Continue reading →
Ever had a moment in your life where you’re so embarrassed to where you’re red in the face? Well, that’s the inspiration for this week’s title. Losing 19-16 to a one-win Washington Redskin team can make any team feel red in the face, and Lions fans have sadly seen this time and time again. Nastia Liukin posted the perfect mood in which Lions fans should be feeling, too.
Alright, it’s time to cook up some winning lineups once again. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. It certainly wasn’t my greatest week ever, but that happens from time to time. Nonetheless, I’ve put in the research to help us get back on track this week. Continue reading →
Alright, it’s time to cook up some winning lineups after some solid picks last week. Can you believe after this week, we will be more than halfway through the regular season? 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.

The 2019 NFL trade deadline was Tuesday but it was a quiet day as only Aqib Talib was traded in a salary dump move by the Los Angeles Rams. However, on Monday, the Miami Dolphins traded Kenyan Drake to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional sixth-round draft pick. On Thursday night, Drake had his best game of the year, totaling 19 touches for 162 scrimmage yards. The San Francisco 49ers won the game 28-25 but the game was much closer than the 9.5 or 10 points the road team was favored by.
There’s been a lot of speculation about some coaches who might be in their last year with their respective teams. I’m going to give you my thoughts on these guys, discussing who should stay put and who needs to go.
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.
Another week and at least the bad quarterback news is balanced with a little good. At least I think it is good news. Players all over the league have been dropping like the fall leaves that have started to fall. Let’s take a look at some significant injury news for week 8 of the NFL season. Continue reading →
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.
There was a ton of movement in the weekly rankings this week. The one constant in the NFL seems to be the Patriots while the 49ers are legit and the Ravens might be the biggest threat to the Patriots in the AFC.
The 1-4 New York Jets face off against there undefeated division rival, New England Patriots. The good news for the Jets and everyone watching this game is that Sam Darnold is back. The bad news is they get to face the toughest defense in the league. Let’s take a look at the best players in this matchup.
Not going to lie, my first week of this series…….did not go great. I lost all of my bets…..even my futures bet. But as good gamblers do, we do not relent. We move forward and we pick some new winners this week. Let’s get rich! Continue reading →
At this point in the fantasy season, your team is starting to really take shape. Your first-round picks are either great, good but not great, or disappointing. Your other rounds look similar, with a variety of unlikely names in the top 12 at their positions through this stage of the season. Continue reading →
Week seven fantasy streamers are here! The four teams on bye this week are the Browns, Buccaneers, Panthers, and Steelers. Here are some options you can use to replace players at quarterback, tight end, defense/special teams, and kicker. Continue reading →
I have some good news, it’s not a quarterback heavy report this week. Unfortunately, it is a running back heavy one instead. And there is actually some good news on the quarterback front finally. Let’s take a look at some of the injury issues teams are facing on Sunday. 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. 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 →
Make sure to set those alarm clocks extra early on Sunday as the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off at 9:30 AM EST from London. Not only do you need to get your fantasy lineups set but also to get in on the betting action for this game. Hopefully, if you bet the Patriots -17 on Thursday night you didn’t panic and hedge your bets after their slow start as the Patriots won 35-14. However, the original over/under was set at 43 in most spots and the over hit thanks to Tom Brady‘s second rushing touchdown of the game, which came with just under four minutes left in the contest.
Another week in the books, and another page of value chalk that failed spectacularly. As with most weeks, much of the popular value ends up being from one team. Last week, it was Bengals pass-catchers, this week it looks to be the Dolphins offense. We will try to navigate through the landmines the best we can.
What a barren, desolate landscape we have on the waiver wire. As is the case in most seasons, the middle of the season has far fewer options available. Honestly, I’m holding put in most leagues, but if you’re looking for help, here are a few options on the wire for you to consider. Continue reading →
Week five of the NFL season did not disappoint, it had everything we come to expect in pro football. This Sunday’s notebook features a London game, a big performance by a Carolina Panthers’ running back, Steelers injury worries and another lively performance by Gardner Minshew. The New York Jets had another week to forget.
The football community is discussing which player is worthy as the No.1 overall draft pick for 2020. It’s a conversation that divides opinion and will continue on deep into April 2020. Let’s pause that thought for a moment and reflect on this year’s draft, by looking at the top-four picks, and several noticeable rookies. We get underway with Kyler Murray.
Is it time to pull the plug on Sam Darnold in 2019? Where is the hot seat situation with Adam Gase? Should the Jets no longer refer to themselves as the New York Jets? Those questions on the mind of Michael Pallas, and he will discuss those and more on the latest edition of the JetUp Bleeding Green Podcast. Continue reading →
There was a lot movement in my rankings this week but that is a result of it still being early in the season and still finding out the identity of teams. The Giants are the biggest movers this week as they moved up nine spots with the play of Daniel Jones.
Another week down in the NFL schedule and some more big names to add to the injury book. It has been a tough couple of weeks for quarterbacks for sure. Nick Foles in week one and now Ben Rothlisberger and Drew Brees in week two. Let’s take a little deeper into these injuries. Continue reading →
The Cleveland Browns picked up their first win of the season Monday night, defeating the New York Jets 23-3 at Metlife stadium. The Browns improve to 1-1 while the Jets fall to 0-2 and are in a deep hole.
Well week two was not as predictable as week one. The injury bug has officially hit. Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, and the Philadelphia Eagles’ receiving core were banged on Sunday. Even in this game, the New York Jets will be without Sam Darnold. Let’s see who the best players are in a potentially ugly Monday night game.
According to various reports, ESPN’s including Cameron Wolfe, the Miami Dolphins are allowing second-year defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick to look for a team to be traded to. The New York Jets should be in the mix and should absolutely do everything they can to trade for the young defensive back.
Thursday morning our routine was interrupted with news that Sam Darnold was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns after being diagnosed with mononucleosis. A lot of folks were surprised they were making the announcement this early in the week. Fans are going to have to wait a little longer for the anticipated matchup between Darnold and the 2018 NFL Draft number one pick Baker Mayfield. Continue reading →
