My glance around the 2015 NFL Draft continues with a glimpse into the heart and soul of defenses everywhere aka the linebackers.  Unlike the offensive skill players, some defenders rise and fall benardrickmdepending on the scheme that they play in.  Their athletic skill is important, but so is the role they will get featured in. Here are my thoughts:

1) Eric Kendricks, Minnesota

Although he is a little short for an inside backer, Kendricks is ultra-athletic and will get to play along his college linebacker.  It looks like he will play MLB and should be able to flow freely to the ball carrier. Read More »

Now that all pro days are in the books and I’ve gotten the chance to watch everyone on the list.  Here is this quick updated list with my thoughts of this dynasty fantasy football draft class.  These rankings are very fluid and will get adjusted after the NFL Draft is overDraft. Any rankings in italics are upgrades.

Quarterbacks

1. Jameis Winston, Florida State

2. Marcus Mariota, Oregon

3. Brett Hundley, UCLA

4. Bryce Petty, Baylor

5. Garrett Grayson, Colorado State

6. Shane Carden, East Carolina

Running backs

1. Todd Gurley, Georgia

2. Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin Read More »

Now that the NFL Combine is over, the fantasy community is all about the rankings.  Here is a quick list with my initial thoughts of this dynasty fantasy football draft class.  My rankings are very fluid and could change Draftdramatically before April 30th.  This is a minimalist list that will get more meat on it in later versions.

I know what you are saying, “Another dynasty mock?  You’re crazy. We haven’t even had the NFL Draft!”  Since many dynasty football players, including myself, have the “sickness” all year-long, the guys here at DLF wanted to host it as a reference league for the pre-draft dynasty layout of the land.  This time before the NFL Draft is especially fun as outside of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, we have no idea where every rookie or the remaining free agents, for that matter, will end up.

The draft has fantastic representation from all the following: bleacherreport.com (Gary Davenport); draftsharks.com (Matt Schauf); footballguys.com (Sigmund Bloom and Jene Bramel); profootballfocus.com (Jeff Ratcliffe and Ross Miles); dynastyleaguefootball.com (Steve Wyremski); The IDP Guru (@OlingerIDPGuru);  myself and a host of others from twitter.

Every fall is an exciting time being coached by a Shanahan.  Neither Mike (head coach) or Kyle (offensive co-ordinator) is loyal to more than one or two particular players. The starting QB situation is unknown and the running backs are always in flux.   The only one that is clear is that Santana Moss is a starting WR.   Anthony Armstrong started most of last year and most NFL people estimated that he was at best a #3 WR, but the Shanahans found a way to make it work.  Jabar Gaffney and Donte Stallworth found their way into town and the Redskins drafted a slew of WRs: Leonard Hankerson, Niles Paul, and Aldrick Robinson.  Can Hankerson make an impact year one or does he wait further down the road?  Click here for the answers: http://www.fantasyalarm.com/2011-fantasy-football-rookie-report-leonard-hankerson-wr-washington-redskins/

Please redhead community forgive me, but Andy Dalton is no Sonny Jurgenson. Will the red hair have an impact?  There is more concern if the Bengals can run the ball effectively with Cedric Benson (once jail time is served) as defenses can feed on a one-dimensional attack.  I can’t think of a team with a rookie quarterback that has better receiving weapons: AJ Green, Jerome Simpson, Jordan Shipley, TE Jermaine Gresham, and scat back Bernard Scott.  New offensive co-ordinator, Jay Gruden, now faces the tough task of getting rookie Dalton ready to face NFL defenses that are unlike anything this TCU grad has ever seen.  What is his fantasy outlook this year and beyond?

Fluid is the first word that comes to mind when you are thinking about a Shanahan running game situation.  Right now, newly minted Tim Hightower is running like crazy in the preseason for the Skins.  With their quarterbacks in flux, John Beck and Rex Grossman, “Papa” and “Sonny Boy” Shanahan will need to run the ball to slow down the other powerful offenses in the NFC East.  The one thing that has been consistent with the Shanahans, the ball carrier is less important than the o-line and the blocking system.  Let’s look at the skill set that Roy Helu, Jr. can bring to the Washington Redskins and your fantasy team.

Some people never change, especially not Al Davis, who will prove that to you with his choice in Raiders jogging suits.  Davis needs his “speed freaks” which is apparent in his choices of wide receivers over the years: Willie Gault, Jerry Porter, and Darrius Heyward Bey.  True to form, Davis drafted Denarius Moore; however, unlike years past, he waited to get Moore in the 5th round of the 2011 NFL Draft.  The Raiders have no strong armed quarterback to get him the ball, instead Jason Campbell is there.  Campbell doesn’t have Kenny Stabler’s arm, nor does he have Rich Gannon’s, or even JaMarcus Russel’s arm.  Another point of concern is two of the team’s best blockers in OG Robert Gallery and TE Zach Miller left with former head coach Tom Cable to go to Seattle.

The 2010 AFC West Champion Kansas City Chiefs looked great in early 2011 when they held off the San Diego Chargers.  The Chiefs passing game, namely Dwayne Bowe and Matt Cassel, did some big things last season especially during weeks 6-12.  RB Jamaal Charles broke out big, as it was looking like the sky was the limit with a touch of smokey KC BBQ sauce.   Then trouble began as OC Charlie Weiss wasn’t allowed to call the Chiefs playoff offense and was let go in the offseason.  Now, former o-line coach Bill Muir was named new OC, but we know who is really going to call those plays, HC Todd Haley.  The Chiefs decided to make their move in the first round by selecting Jonathan Baldwin.
