Each year are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the NFL Draft; the 2017 NFL Draft is no different. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior tight end Jordan Leggett, Clemson Tigers.

TE-Jordan Leggett Clemson, 6’5” 255 lbs.

The Clemson senior tight end improved on his receptions every year of school and managed to help his team win a national championship all while trying to transition from a big receiver in high school to becoming a complete tight end at the next level. Does he have the ability to excel in the NFL? As I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Alabama, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech along with 2015 games against South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida State.. Most of these game videos are available via draftbreakdown.com. Here are my thoughts: Read More »

Each year are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the NFL Draft; the 2017 NFL Draft is no different.  Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior tight end Jake Butt, Michigan Wolverines.

TE-Jake Butt, Michigan 6’6” 248 lbs.

Please forgive my homerism as I have watched Jake Butt in Ann Arbor for the past four years and have seen his level of play improve, especially since Coach Harbaugh came to town. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the seven games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Michigan State, Iowa, Colorado, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State, and Florida State.

The amazing time for dynasty fantasy football continues.  We are getting some rookie practice reports; all kinds of fantasy football drafts are underway which gives everyone a chance to put their hardymoney where their mouth is in respect to player evaluation and strategy.  I joined a start-up league run by my buddy Stan Hyatt.  It is a 12 teamer with 40 regular roster spots and five taxi squad spots (rookies only).  The lineups are as follows: 1 QB, 2-3 RBs, 2-5 WRs, 1-3 TEs (need eight combined players out of RB/WR/TE spots), 1 K and on the defensive side 3-4 LBs, 3-4 DBs, 2-3 DLs with ten total defensive starters.  It is PPR scoring for all positions, tackle heavy IDP scoring, 6 points for every touchdown, .1 points per 1 yard of offense (rushing and receiving), and .05 per yard of passing and/or returns.  I was lucky enough to end up with my favorite roster spot, 10th overall in a straight snake format.  You can find the league here: http://football24.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=78307&O=17

21.04 WR Josh Gordon, Browns and 22.01 DE Greg Hardy, Cowboys

These are two of the most talented players at their positions.  Both have many demons to battle to be productive.  I have no desire to have either on my team, but the price is reasonable enough to consider it here.  Read More »

tannyThe journey through my dynasty fantasy football leagues continues to the Gardiner Packers.  This is the third year of the league, which is a 32 teamer with doubles of every player (only warning is that a single owner cannot own two of the same player).  It is one of the famed Paragon Leagues that have strong commissioners and spelled out rules for almost every single situation.  Scoring is as follows: 4pts for passing touchdowns, 6pts for all other touchdowns, .5pts for running back per reception, PPR for wide receivers and tight ends, and sacks are worth three times as much as tackles for the defensive line.  A starting lineup consists of 1 QB, 2-3 RBs, 3-5 WRs, 1-2 TEs, 1 K, 1-2 DTs, 2-3 Des, 3-4 LBs, 2-3 CBs, and 2-3 Ss.  In the offseason, teams can have 73 players on their squad (65 regular roster spots and eight on the taxi squad).  This was my first league of this kind.  This concept gets duplicated a lot, but never as well.  You can find the league here:http://www11.myfantasyleague.com/2014/home/47455#0  Let’s discuss my team which has come close two years a row to making the playoffs:

QBs- Tony Romo, Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, Brandon Weeden, Ryan Griffin (start 1)

Romo is an underrated quarterback that will be forced to throw even more with the Dallas putrid defense.  Will Tannehill excel in a high paced offense similar to Philly?  If the answer is yes, he might actually be worth his late first round rookie pick selection in 2013.  I have my starters’ backups, for now, and I invested a few dollars on the waiver wire to get Brees’ athletic backup.
