After another stellar season, Russell Wilson, where if not for Lamar Jackson‘s lights out season, could’ve easily walked away with the MVP award. Another successful double-digit season that featured a pair of epic matchups with division rival and ultimate NFC Champions, the San Francisco 49ers. Continue reading →
As of 2020, there are currently six quarterbacks according to OverTheCap that are being paid upwards of $30,000,000 annually. Those QB’s are Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, and Matt Ryan. Obviously, all of these quarterbacks have done something to earn their contracts, but what got us to this point where quarterbacks are demanding upwards of $30M dollars? This is what I’ll be analyzing today in this article. We’ll go over the highest paid Quarterbacks since 2014, and which record-breaking signings really broke open the market. These contracts factor in original signing bonuses into the first year of the contract, so they may seem a little suspect in the drops from year to year.
In a year where expectations varied, Russell Wilson once again put the entire Seattle Seahawks team on his back and nearly took them on a deep playoff run. The Seahawks suffered several injuries throughout the season, but Wilson and this Seattle offense somehow found a way to win a few big games on their way to an 11-5 regular season record, finishing second in the NFC West.

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs is upon us. There are four games this weekend. I’ll be giving you my top plays for DraftKings four-game slate and my top plays for the Saturday and Sunday FanDuel slate. Let’s just jump right in. Here are my top players for this weekend’s playoff games.
The Philadelphia Eagles did it again winning four straight games when it mattered most to get themselves into the playoffs for the third straight year, while the Seattle Seahawks rode Russell Wilson and their running backs to an 11-5 record. Carson Wentz has been banged up the last two years with multiple injuries enabling Nick Foles to start in the last two years of the playoffs, but now Wentz is healthy and has a chance to prove himself on the big stage for the first time in his career. The Seahawks had a chance to win their division and set up a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, but failure to do so resulted in the five seed. The Seahawks and Eagles played each other once in the regular season resulting in a 17-9 victory. Rashaad Penny was the star of the game with 129 yards off of 14 carries with a touchdown. Continue reading →
The Los Angeles Rams are still clinging to life in hopes of making the playoffs. They came out Sunday night and played like they had something on the line throughout the whole game. That sense of urgency was the driving force behind their 28-12 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
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.
The NFL through ten weeks has been full of surprises, many of those surprises reside in the NFC, with the NFC West being the main talking point. The San Francisco 49ers are in the division lead at 8-1, with the Seattle Seahawks at 8-2 and hot on their heels. In this article, we will discuss the current MVP candidates and their chances of winning.
This is the best Monday Night Football game so far this year. The undefeated San Francisco 49ers face off against their divisional rival Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are 7-2 and need to win this game if they want to win the division. The 49ers can take a three-game lead in the division and be in control of there own destiny for the top seed in the NFC with a victory. Here are my top players for tonight’s game.
We have passed the half-way point of the season – it’s time to buck up and finish your season strong! Last week featured a couple of smash performances by Tevin Coleman and Aaron Jones. We also saw Mike Evans erupt against the Titans. This week features a bounce-back spot for a star running back who has struggled this season. On to Week 9! Continue reading →
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 →
The 2019 NFL season is already a quarter of the way finished and team’s identity are starting to shape into form. At this point, there are only three undefeated teams left in the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and surprisingly the San Francisco 49ers. Meanwhile, there are six winless teams and almost half the league is sitting at 2-2. If this course continues, the playoff race will be as exciting as ever, but what have we learned over the first quarter of the season? The Scorecrow family has put together another roundtable giving you their opinions on five NFL questions. Be sure to follow all the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Last week’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers was one of the best games all year. This week, we get the Los Angeles Rams verse the Seattle Seahawks. This could be a high scoring game or a low scoring defensive battle. I am guessing a high scoring back and forth game. Here are my picks for the best players in tonight’s game.
Last week’s Thursday night game was a good one, with the Eagles defeating the Packers 34-27 thanks to a tipped Aaron Rodgers pass that turned into the game ending interception. After the first few Thursday night games which being boring, we get another great matchup as the Los Angeles Rams travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. The goal of the cash game article is to outline some of the safer plays, while also, providing options that will help you create the most optimal builds. The whole point of it all is to make some money. Sometimes we won’t, but putting ourselves in the best position to do so is the main thing. That goes without saying, but can sometimes get overshadowed by the results on a week to week basis.
With 32 teams in the midst of regular-season preparation via training camp practices, we often see the hype for rookies spin out of control. It seems like every year without fail, NFL Twitter gets a hold of a couple clips of a corner making a nice interception, or a running back juking a linebacker and leaving them in the dust, and proclaims them as the next great thing. I’m here to look at seven players that were drafted in April that have seen a ton of chatter, and to give my predictions on if they will prove worthy from day one.
2018 was a better year than most Seahawks fans probably anticipated. The team set out to run the ball more, and that was exactly what they did by leading the NFL in rushing yards per game with an average of 160 yards. With a much-improved run game, the team didn’t have to rely on Russell Wilson trying to make a play every down behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The Seahawks finished the season 10-6, making it their seventh straight winning season and their sixth playoff appearance in that same time frame. While they lost a heart-breaker against the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, it’s hard to be upset when your team overperforms during the regular season.

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 a few 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 quarterbacks for the 2019 season.
The 2019 NFL draft is just around the corner and teams are putting the finishing touches on their player evaluations. Everyone loves mock drafts so here is a seven round mock draft predicting every Seattle Seahawks’ pick. Thanks to several previous trades, the Seahawks have just four picks this year. Continue reading →
The Seattle Seahawks finished the season at 10-6 and got themselves to a Wild Card berth. They wound up losing to the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 but for a team that wasn’t supposed to do much, they had a nice season. What can they do to topple the Rams this year in the NFC West?
What is going on with Aaron Rodgers? Not just in fantasy, but in the NFL as well. He has always been in the discussion of who is the G.O.A.T. but this year he is not playing up to his standards. I know the excuse can be made for the Packers having young receivers, and he really misses Jordy Nelson. But Rodgers has always had the ability to elevate the talent around him.
Welcome to the first edition of The Scorecrow’s Best Bets. Each week, we will look at the current line for every game and which ones seem like guaranteed winners. Our blog will include stats, history, and sometimes straight up gut feelings. Let’s start with some TNF.
Week 10. It is only four weeks away from the fantasy playoffs and it is more important than ever to figure out the matchups we should be targeting to help us bring home that W. Do not be the person who benches the player about to go off because he had a bad game recently. Based on this week’s matchups, I recommend that you start or sit the following players.
Has anyone noticed that my “boom” plays go boom a week or two after I feature them? So unfortunate in the timing. Albert Wilson, c’mon man! Went off this past week. And don’t even get me started on Mason Crosby. Recommended him last week, and he saw plenty of opportunities and missed everything. If he hit all 6 of his kicks including his extra point attempt he would’ve had 21 points. 21. From a kicker. Then he goes and scores 17 against the Niners the next week.
We are just about halfway through the season heading into week six, and our matchups become more critical. In these next few weeks, some will clinch a playoff berth and some will be eliminated from contention. That is why we must always be trying to improve our teams and do what we can to put the best possible starting lineup out there. First and foremost, always start the guys filling in for injured players. I am not going to tell you to start T.J. Yeldon and Tevin Coleman because that is too obvious, those guys should be in everyone’s lineups. However, there are tons of players with great matchups this week so we have to make sure we pinpoint those matchups and capitalize.
The art of trading in fantasy football isn’t simple. Yet, as the waiver wire thins out, trading becomes nearly the only way to turn things around. The trouble with trading is two-fold. First, you have to identify the targets that you want to acquire and the ones you want to trade away. Looking at current usage, their upcoming strength of schedule and their potential upside can all help you with this process. However, the second step involves negotiation. One of the more frustrating parts is that everything could seemingly line up for your offer, and yet all your work can be undone with a simple “no.” While this article can’t really help you with the latter of those two problems, it can definitely help you identify some potential targets.
The Seattle Seahawks look to get back to the postseason in 2018-19. The NFC is tough and the Seahawks lost some key players including a few from the vaunted Legion of Boom. Can Pete Carroll and his crew get this team back to its former glory?
