Five Bold Predictions For The Washington Redskins

Steve Seufert | May 10th, 2020

Last season was an absolute disaster and Dan Snyder finally sent Bruce Allen packing. After firing Allen, Snyder told the entire interim coaching staff and some front office members to follow him out the door. During the coaching search, Allen had one guy in mind. A coach with great character and vision with ambition. That coach was Ron Rivera, who takes pride in coaching discipline football. I would expect the Redskins to improve in 2020.

Early 2020 Wins and Losses Projections: NFC East

Brady Podloski, Steve Seufert, Brandon Braasch, Sam Schneider | May 10th, 2020

The NFC East arguably has some of the most passionate fans in the NFL. It also has some of the weirdest divisional games, which are always unpredictable. The four teams each have a young quarterback of which makes every game exciting. While the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles have each won the division twice in the past four years, the Giants and Redskins are starting to accumulate talent. With the 2020 schedule set, there are some significant games each NFC 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 projected all 256 games and have the winners and losers of each division!

Five Bold Predictions for the 2020 NFL Season

Tanner Elliott | May 8th, 2020

Every NFL season is full of surprises. Last year it was the emergence of Lamar Jackson and the Tennessee Titans making it to the AFC Championship game. After one of the craziest offseasons and drafts to date, this year is going to be full of surprises. Here we will look at five unthinkable things that could possibly happen this upcoming season.

Washington Redskins Draft Review

Steve Seufert | April 28th, 2020

One thing is for sure, Kyle Smith and Ron Rivera had a plan. A plan that was made public to the fans. The plan was to add versatility and what Rivera refers to as position-less football players.  I love that they stuck to their plan, even if I thought there were better players on the board. They’re trying to instill a culture and attitude that this organization has lacked for almost three decades. I think it’s already working.

Washington Redskins Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Mike Fanelli | March 28th, 2020

After years of being overly aggressive in free agency, the Washington Redskins have learned to “shop smart”. Instead of signing big name guys to awful contracts, they have learned to focus on smaller and smarter deals. They started the offseason by placing the franchise tag on star right guard Brandon Scherff. Starting left guard Ereck Flowers signed a massive deal with the Miami Dolphins. The Redskins were wise not to match and instead sign former Atlanta Falcons’ guard Wes Schweitzer to a deal for half the cost. They made a run at Amari Cooper but he ultimately decided to re-sign with the Dallas Cowboys.

Mason’s Mock Draft 3.0 Round One

Mason Thompson | March 23rd, 2020

Now that the first week of free agency has passed, it is now time for another round of mock drafts. Of course, players like Jadeveon Clowney, Robby Anderson, and Jameis Winston are still on the market as well as some trades still set to happen. Teams have addressed their needs, while some have opened up new needs(ahem, Houston). Now, that free agency has passed, for the most part, Buffalo has filled their need of a primary wide receiver and Las Vegas has filled their linebacker need.

Best Fantasy Landing Spot For Top Remaining Free Agents

Mike Fanelli | March 21st, 2020

Every year free agency is full of surprises but this year has been extra wild. Tom Brady is now a Buccaneer, DeAndre Hopkins was traded to the Cardinals without the Texans getting back a first-round pick, and the Colts gave up a top 15 pick and a boatload of money for DeForest Buckner while also signing Philip Rivers to a one year deal. We are almost a week into free agency, yet a lot of players haven’t signed new deals.

Gio’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft 3.0 (Round One)

Givanni Damico | February 27th, 2020

It’s been too long since I’ve done a mock draft! With the combine approaching, it is most certainly mock draft season. I’m back with a three-round draft this time. This is just the first round. Rounds two and three will be out later this week either Friday or Saturday. I tried to keep the trades at a minimum for this go around because my post-combine draft will be a bit more crazy. Let’s get into it. Continue reading

Washington Redskins Pre Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Mike Fanelli | February 6th, 2020

The Washington Redskins’ 2019 season didn’t go as anyone had planned. Between the merry-go-round at quarterback, the injuries, and the coaching/front office dumpster fire, it’s amazing the Redskins didn’t finish with the worse record in the NFL. However, the reward for the horrible season is the number two overall draft pick. Thanks to a draft night trade last season, the Redskins don’t have a second-round pick (34th overall), as it now belongs to the Indianapolis Colts. However, thanks to losing Jamison Crowder in free agency last year, the Redskins are projected to receive a fourth-round compensatory pick. In total, the Redskins are projected to have seven draft picks this year.

Washington Redskins 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | January 2nd, 2020 

The 2019 season was one filled with frustration by the fans and a billion #FireBruceAllen replies on every tweet from the Redskins’ official twitter page. The team finished 3-13, the second-worst record in the league, only ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals. Jay Gruden was fired after the team started 0-5. The team had unrealistic expectations this season but Gruden needed to go as the team needed a major shakeup. It took until week nine for rookie Dwayne Haskins to take over as the starter at quarterback. He should have been starting the game after Gruden was fired. This season should have been about developing the future, yet it started off with expectations of competing for the playoffs.

Detroit Lions Week 12 Recap- Lions Red(skinned) in the Face

Tom Greene | November 25th, 2019 

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.

Daniel Corrigan | October 29th, 2019

I’m waaaaayyyyy down on the past two World Series games, but don’t let that distract you that I went 27-14-1 last week. I’m back with more picks. More overs, locks, underdogs, and everything in between. Let’s get rich.

Thursday Night Football Week 8 DFS

Brandon Braasch | October 24th, 2019 

This game does not seem very interesting just based on each team’s record. The Minnesota Vikings are 5-2 and the Washington Redskins are 1-6. However, this is a revenge game for Vikings starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. He faces his former team where he played for six seasons. It is also a revenge game for Adrian Peterson as he faces the Vikings where he played for ten seasons. Here are my top players in this NFC matchup.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings

Mike Fanelli | October 24th, 2019 

Last week’s Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos wasn’t much of a contest. Despite the Chiefs losing star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the second quarter with a dislocated kneecap, the Broncos didn’t score after the opening drive and went on to lose 30-6. Hopefully, tonight’s game between the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings is more entertaining, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

NFL Power Rankings: Week Seven

Raul Vazquez | October 22nd, 2019 

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 Walsh Way – Week 7 NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | October 19th, 2019 

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.

Week Six NFL Picks: Spreads, Props and More

Mike Fanelli & Givanni Damico | October 12th, 2019

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.

NFL Power Rankings: Week Five

With Jay Gruden Gone What’s Next for the Washington Redskins?

John Woz, Jr. | October 7th, 2019 

Week five of the NFL brought about the first head coach firing of the year. The Washington Redskins slipped to 0-5, after suffering another heavy defeat on Sunday. Owner Dan Snyder had seen enough and fired Jay Gruden.

NFL Roundtable: 2019 First Quarter Edition

Mike Fanelli, Ethan Hewett, Daniel Corrigan, Frank Ammirante, Michael Pallas | October 3rd, 2019 

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.

NFL Power Rankings: Week Three

Raul Vazquez | September 24th, 2019 

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.

Monday Night Football DFS Week Three: Bears vs Redskins

Brandon Braasch | September 23rd, 2019 

It is time for some Monday Night Football. This week will be a lot better than last week’s game. Let’s be honest last weeks game was brutal. Watching Trevor Siemian and then Luke Falk play quarterback was not exciting. This game might not be as exciting as watching Patrick Mahomes, but at least Mitchell Trubisky and Case Keenum will do more than just dump the ball off to the running back. In a game where I expect there to be a good amount of fantasy points put up, let’s see who the best players are on this slate.

2019 Fantasy Football Week Two: IDP Report

Joshua Abbe| September 12th, 2019 

Well, week one has come and gone. While some games were close and others blowouts, on the defensive side of the ball, players started to stand out and make a mark right off the bat for their teams. In a review of last week’s edition, we saw the unfortunate injury bug claim Jonathan Allen after playing only seven snaps when he injured his knee. Richard Sherman though shined with five tackles, four solos, two pass deflections and an interception for a pick-six! Zach Cunningham has five tackles against New Orleans and my sleeper pick of Jerome Baker logged eight tackles, just shy of making the double-digit mark. Going into week two the matchups are looking juicy for these guys listed below!

Give the Gift of Life

Dr. Beth Sullivan | July 12th, 2019

Nearly 100,000 people are currently waiting for a kidney transplant. In fact, more people are waiting for a match because of kidney failure than all other organs combined. On Wednesday word is spread all over social media that former NFL defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was in desperate need of a kidney due to the failure of his kidneys. He posted on Instagram that the time had come to ask for help and fans and media alike have been spreading his plea for help on social media platforms far and wide. Another NFL player who has already gone through a kidney transplant is former Bills wide receiver, Donald Jones. Jones has written a book, The Next Quarter, about his experiences before during and after the transplant. Information about obtaining the book is available at DonaldJones.info. It is a great read.

Washington Redskins Draft Review: Is Dwayne Haskins the Answer?

Mike Fanelli | April 30th, 2019

The 2019 NFL draft was a blast and despite plenty of rumors of teams trading into the top-10, there was very little trade action till the last third of the first round. One of the teams rumored to jump into the top five to secure a quarterback was the Washington Redskins. However, they stayed patient and still managed to get their guy at pick 15 overall.

Washington Redskins 7 Round Mock Draft: A Future at Quarterback?

Mike Fanelli | March 27th, 2019

The 2019 NFL draft is less than a month away and teams are putting the finishing touches on their player evaluations. Every year we see several surprising picks that come out of nowhere like when the Seattle Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in the first last year. Everyone loves mock drafts so here is a seven round mock draft predicting every Washington Redskins’ pick. To help with this mock draft, I used the FanSpeak on the clock simulator. Continue reading

Five Trade Ideas for Josh Rosen if the Cardinals Draft Kyler Murray

Mike Fanelli | February 14th, 2019

https://twitter.com/TheKylerMurray/status/1095016263473119232/photo/1

Recently former Oklahoma quarterback and Oakland A’s first-round draft pick, Kyler Murray, announced on Twitter that he was “firmly and fully committing my life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback”. With Murray 100% committed to playing in the NFL, his draft stock should start to rise.

Dallas Cowboys In Tough Fight For NFC East Supremacy

Dale Money | November 26th, 2018

In a game they desperately needed in order to gain control in the NFC East, the Dallas Cowboys came up big in claiming a 31-23 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving day. They’ve won three straight games, since a 28-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans, where they looked dead in the water. Amari Cooper had a bit of a coming out party, contributing back-to-back third-quarter touchdowns.

Alex Smith – Another Gruesome sports injury

Beth Sullivan | November 19th, 2018

What do Paul George, Kevin Ware, Joe Theismann, and Alex Smith have in common?  If you were watching football on Sunday, then you know that they all suffered a gruesome sports injury – a lower leg fracture involving both bones in the lower leg.  In medical terms, this is a Tib-Fib fracture.  In sports terms, these injuries dominate more than one list of gruesome sports injuries.

Week 10 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

Frank Dyevoich | November 10th, 2018

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.

Who Are the Washington Redskins?

Chazz Bradner | November 7th, 2018

At the halfway point in the NFL season, the Redskins have shocked everybody by sitting at the top of the NFC East division with a 5-3 record. However, the NFC East is nothing to brag about, to say the least. Watching this division race unfold is like seeing a brand new Lamborghini sitting outside just waiting to be driven by somebody. However, the Lamborghini is locked so you can’t open it and you just walk away leaving the beautiful car to collect dust. What these teams do not know is that the keys to this prize are in their own pockets as we speak, it is theirs for the taking.

2018 NFL Trade Deadline Grades, with Fantasy Breakdown

Mike Fanelli | October 31st, 2018

The 2018 NFL trade deadline was yesterday and usually there isn’t much movement. Once every few years there is a name player traded that has a real impact on a team and has some fantasy implications. When Amari Cooper was traded to the Cowboys last week, many expected that to be the “big move” prior to the deadline. However, the NFL once again won as the trade deadline saw five trades involving name players, four of which included serious draft capital.

Week 7 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 18th, 2018

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.

Is there an ACL Injury Epidemic in the NFL?

Beth Sullivan | October 12th, 2018

Jay Ajayi, Jerick McKinnon, Jimmy Garoppolo, Keanu Neal, Derrius Guice, William Hayes, and Jeremy Hill,  headline the list of NFL feature players who have been bitten by the ACL injury bug that has driven football fans crazy. Jay Ajayi became the 39th reported ACL injury since March 2018. Everyone is discussing the epidemic of ACL injuries but in actuality, the numbers haven’t changed by a statistically significant amount since detailed injury statistics for all NFL teams started to be compiled during the 2000-2001 season. Typically every NFL team experiences 1.5 ACL injuries per NFL season each year.
