Touchdowns are generally fluky (before his nine last season, Cook had six in his breakout year in Oakland and a total of three in the three seasons from 2015 to 2017), and this also works in concert with draft philosophy for me. And there will still be players who don't pan out and bad calls that will take points off your board, and there's no doubt there will be, in hindsight, some bad advice from that guy you read on ESPN every Thursday. Second is the change in QB. Earlier this month, ESPN senior fantasy analyst Matthew Berry and college basketball analyst Dan Dakich also announced they tested positive. Featured Stories. Now, ADP is sure to rise or fall, as the case may be, but this is a snapshot of how players were being drafted in the first few weeks of August.

He averaged less than nine touches per game last season, had only 12 total red zone touches, and even if anything happens to David Montgomery, the Bears' starting running back isn't going to be Tarik Cohen. Either way, he's very likely to outearn his current ADP and be a high-end flex or low-end RB2, and if anything were to happen to Nick Chubb, Hunt would be a top-five RB. — Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) November 6, 2020. One of only two players in the NFL with at least 1,100 rushing yards and nine total TDs in each of the past two seasons (Ezekiel Elliott is the other), Carson started to be used more in the passing game in 2019, with 2.5 receptions and 3.0 targets a game (up from 1.4 and 1.6, respectively, the season before). Which is precisely what Jack loved about it. Upbeat and full of life, he has an infectious spirit and a personality that quickly turns strangers into friends.

Fantasy football levels the playing field for every single one of us. Johnson is currently going as WR41 in the 13th round. And that's if Fournette stays on the field. ", "Imagine how good Robinson could be this season if Nick Foles is even slightly better than Trubisky!". Yes, there was a lot wrong with Detroit's offense after Matthew Stafford got hurt, so this is all a bit skewed, but still. The Broncos' offense should be better this season, and Drew Lock will lean heavily on Fant. He had a bar mitzvah. I know everyone is all gaga for Cam Akers, but he's a rookie in a year with no preseason games and very limited practice time. Here's the issue with that: He was all they had. Michael Gallup, Cowboys: Which WR do you want based on 2019 per-game averages? With a career 3.95 yards-per-carry average, he's a guy who needs volume to produce significant fantasy numbers. This year, I either want to be one of the first guys in my league to grab a tight end or one of the last, as there are a number of young tight ends with huge upside who are likely to have significantly larger roles in their offenses than 33-year-old Cook. The brilliance of fantasy football is that it doesn't care. This byline is mine, but I want my name removed. Plus, the fact there's a better-than-average chance this is a committee tells me he is still a player to avoid at his current ADP. This will be a common theme among many of the players listed here, but in a year with no preseason games and just 14 padded practices, I want as much continuity as possible. Fantasy doesn't have to be that tough, kids. Whatever his role is in Tampa Bay -- backup to Ronald Jones II, part of a committee, lead RB -- it is highly unlikely he sees the same volume he was getting with the Jaguars. Dak Prescott, Cowboys: All the fantasy team names using his name are fairly obvious and hacky. This byline is for a different person with the same name. A lot more touches. And so, somewhere along this journey we're about to set out on, there will be things we've never had to deal with before. ... One reason I'm a little nervous about the rushing touchdowns for Josh Allen and Devin Singletary this season is the presence of Zack Moss, who is a very tough tackle (he was top 10 in yards per carry after first contact and missed tackles forced per touch last season). He did get a lot of end zone targets last season, I'll give him that, but overall he averaged just 4.5 targets per game (16th among tight ends) and finished 17th among tight ends in target share. Because, you see, Jack is anything but basic and normal. TDs, 15.5 fantasy pts. I'm in on Brady this year, and it's not just that he'll be playing with arguably the best total group of pass-catchers he's ever had in his career. Chris Carson, Seahawks: Death, taxes and me banging the drum for Chris Carson. Because this is a team that will be pass-heavy. Why are we so obsessed with fantasy football? What it means is that I believe a top-10 RB price tag is too rich for Sanders and that Howard's ADP outside the top 35 at the position is a bargain. An increase in targets is expected this season for Brown, who in his six games last season with five-plus targets averaged 15.5 PPG. ... We saw what Anthony Miller was capable of last season when he was WR8 in Weeks 11-15. Howard" talk last season. I mean, during the same basic time frame (Weeks 14-17), Boston Scott was the seventh-best RB in fantasy on the same team. In general, I've been trying to stay with players in the same situation as the season before, but although it's a new team for Hurst, the QB, coach and offensive system are the same as the season before, when Atlanta led the NFL in pass attempts. Melvin is gone and Ekeler is going to get even more touches this season. Showing his potential in the first four games of last season (before Melvin Gordon showed up), Ekeler was the second-best RB in fantasy, scoring just 4.9 fewer total points than Christian McCaffrey. Grab a drumstick and help me beat the drum for Carson. In other words, all the normal bodily functions we take for granted?

He goes to school when he can. Yes, Tampa will be a more efficient and higher-scoring offense and yes, whoever the RB is for Tampa will see much lighter fronts with a better offensive line than the Jags have, so I can see the argument for him. ESPN+ is also the new home for LIVE daily radio telecasts of Greeny, Chiney & Golic Jr., The Max Kellerman Show, and Jorge Ramos y Su Banda. Jacobs is a legit RB1 this year. Swift is another guy who is being drafted at best-possible-outcome ADP. For starters, he shouldn't even be alive. Grandma or rock star, CEO or kid in the mailroom, 30-year veteran or nervous first-timer, perfect physical specimen or kid with an obscure disease. The challenge is it's all true. "Allen Robinson was WR8 last season despite having Trubisky as his QB. Marvin Jones Jr. is another unsexy guy no one will get angry about when you draft him, but he was WR14 last season in the eight games he played with Matthew Stafford and finished the season as a top-20 WR on a points-per-game basis. He was top 10 among WRs in yards per game and targets per game, and only one wide receiver in football ran more routes per game (Chris Godwin). He is being drafted ahead of Joe Mixon, who also has no competition and has multiple years of being elite. So less of a target share on a run-first team and he's going ahead of target monsters like A.J. So many tight ends I like are going outside the top 10. He's had some bad touchdown luck the past few years, and while he'll never be a huge touchdown scorer, he should see some positive regression on last season's two touchdowns and get into the 5-to-7 range. Jason Witten leaving Dallas for Las Vegas means 85 targets (ninth most among tight ends) are now up for grabs, and last season Jarwin was ninth among tight ends in fantasy points per target. Somehow going as QB6 in ESPN live drafts, last year's second-best QB in total points continues to get no respect on the virtual field. That's what I was screaming into my phone as I recorded videos for ESPN on draft day. He was defeated narrowly by Murray in a June 8 primary. Main; Articles; Pictures; Articles. Same QB, same system. Others receiving votes: Jared Goff may not be great, but he's not QB20 either, which is where he's currently going. Since 2007, he has been with ESPN as their "Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst". Now, critics will point out that Gallup's per-game averages are inflated by his huge Week 17 game against Washington last season when he caught three touchdowns. He, along with his mother, his older brother, Cody, his younger twin siblings, Hunter and Charlotte, and his healthcare staff, deserve incredible praise. And by the way, Kerryon Johnson is good. Given that the team used a second-round pick on 250-pound RB AJ Dillon and did little in the way of adding additional pass-catching help, it seems likely this offense will once again be run-heavy. If Nick Foles wins the job in Chicago (and that's what I expect), he has traditionally been better when targeting the slot. In a year with COVID-19 and so much unknown, I'm a fan of insuring your main RB or taking a shot at having a backup pop, so I always get at least one, if not two or three, of J.K. Dobbins, Tony Pollard, Alexander Mattison, Latavius Murray, Chase Edmonds, Joshua Kelley and DeAndre Washington in drafts. As Jordan wrote to me, "During my visits, we would talk for hours at a time. He has been a writer and/or producer on many television shows including Roseanne, Married... with Children, Desperate Housewives, and Last Man Standing. Of all the guys going that late, he clearly has the best chance of being top five at his position, and if he's not, it didn't cost you much in draft capital. I also expect Jacobs, who has no real competition for touches (he was fourth in carries per game last season), to be even more involved in the passing game this season. But I still put him in here because there are a lot of questions about whether a rookie, in a season with no preseason games and just 14 padded practices, is worth a mid-first-round pick. Argh.). As Robin notes, "So many people think video games are harmful, but for us they've been a blessing. Since Jordan Howard came into the league in 2016, he is third in the NFL in rushing yards and seventh in rushing touchdowns. MY. That's it. Every. It expresses something that you rookies will soon learn. Now, Jordan plays in many leagues, including one with his father, a long-time fantasy fanatic who also plays in multiple leagues. Matthew Berry highlights, interviews, updates. There are lots of other tight ends going much later in drafts, who have as much upside as Henry (if not a lot more), basically the same floor and fewer injury concerns. Damn. Turner, son of Norv, is going to be calling pass plays. Matthew Berry, ESPN. Now there's a chicken-and-egg thing happening with the Raiders. Raheem Mostert was fourth among RBs last season (minimum 100 touches) in fantasy points per touch and is slated for a much bigger role this season. You should know right off the bat there is nothing particularly unique or interesting about The Jack Attack Fantasy Football League based in New City, New York. More articles from Sigmund Bloom See all. 11 overall, a borderline first-rounder. I'm gonna repeat it.

Jimmy G ranked 30th of 32 qualifiers in air yards per pass attempt, and while he was great in two games against Arizona (29.2 PPG), he averaged just 13.5 points per game against everyone else. This is for those in deeper leagues, superflex or 2-QB leagues, or for those who want to draft multiple QBs because of health concerns this year. But even if he stays with the Jags this season, the passing-game volume is very likely to go down with the acquisition of Chris Thompson, now reunited with his former Washington coach Jay Gruden. Aaron Rodgers, Packers: He's an amazing real-life NFL QB, he's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer and he is a bad, bad man.

Matthew has 15 jobs listed on their profile. Don't make me come to your house and draft him for you, because I will. Are these issues all related? Speaking of guys who could get a ton of junk-time production, Teddy Bridgewater has what should be a pass-happy offense, a terrible defense and a lot of guys (Christian McCaffrey, DJ Moore, Curtis Samuel, Robby Anderson) who can take a short pass and run to the house. He needs 24/7 nursing care, his growth has been stunted, and he has way too many additional respiratory, cardiovascular, orthopedic and digestive issues to list. Rodgers is currently going as QB11 on ESPN, and while he obviously has the talent to earn that and more, I have him comfortably outside of my top 12 QBs for 2020. in the 12th round.
