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 »

The 2016 NFL Draft has a few talented football players, who do not have natural positions.  The one this article discusses is former UCLA Bruin Thomas Duarte.  He is a tweener because of his tduartesize, not due to his play.  By just glancing at his 2015 statistics: 53 receptions for 872 yards (16.5 average per catch) and ten touchdowns, it’s clear that he is a play maker.  There isn’t a lot of game film available on draftbreakdown.com for him, but I did find two 2015 games against California and Colorado, along with highlights from his freshman and sophomore college years to get a better idea of what this young man brings to the next level.  Here are my thoughts:

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 jreedmoney 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

16.10 TE Jordan Reed, Washington

This third year oft-injured tight end did not have a good second season.  Reed missed five games last season while only had five fantasy impactful games.  2015 will be a make or break year for him.  Is he more talented than the 19th guy at his position, sure, but potential will only get you so far.  Huge risk/reward play here, I hope it works out.

In this weekly column, I typically explore some young players who haven’t made much of a consistent impact to date on their fantasy football teams. Some players may be available on your waiver jreedwire, some may be available via a cheap or moderate trade. Acquiring or not acquiring one of these players could decide how well your dynasty or keeper team does for the next few years.  This week I take a look at two young Washington skill players in Robert Griffin III and Jordan Reed.

QB-Robert Griffin III, WASH- I will refer to him as RG3 for the rest of the article for simplicity’s sake.  What a difference a year makes, when you look back to the beginning of 2013, the entire football world brimmed with excitement about the super athletic playmaker.  Now the realities of the 2014 season have set in, RG3 does not offer the same wonderment, in fact it might be better described as fear and loathing.  The third year quarterback started off the game pressured by the Bucs defense.  His first pass got batted in the air for an interception.  He was late on the throw and did not set his feet before releasing the ball.  A series later, RG3 didn’t see a linebacker looming underneath a short route, the ball got knocked into a Tampa corner’s arms for a short touchdown return.
