HIDDEN GEMS: Tight End Sleepers

Tight End Hunter Henry San Diego Chargers

Ever since I got involved in fantasy football over 20 years ago, I've had a bit of an affinity for the tight end position. While my fellow owners were boasting about which running back or wide receiver they landed on draft day, I was looking for that hidden gem on my tight end cheat sheet.

RISK ASSESSMENT: Upside Players With Downside

RB Chris Carson SEA

Having a monopoly over the Seattle backfield is equal to a first round running back this year... Rashaad Penny has a real chance to take volume from Chris Carson (and maybe even the starting role eventually) but the current ADP of both players allows massive upside especially when drafted together.

2018 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Tennessee Titans

LB Anthony Walker IND sacks QB Marcus Mariota TEN

While part of Mariota’s struggles can be attributed to injury, the 25-year old signal caller’s overall consistency when on the field still leaves much to be desired, having scored fewer than 14 fantasy points in 40 percent of his 55 career starts.

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

During the offseason, Baker Mayfield's interim offensive coordinator to close out 2018, Freddie Kitchens, was promoted to head coach, while the team brought in air raid specialist Todd Monken (the overseer of Tampa Bay's league-leading passing offense last season) to serve as the new OC.

NFL DRAFT: QB Landing Spots

QB Dwayne Haskins Ohio State

The Raiders have been attracted to Haskins and Kyler Murray, but with Kyler Murray gone, they would have to go get Haskins. This pick could potentially change if the Giants trade up as they are apparently big on Haskins too.

QB_Blake_Bortles_JAC_2

We can expect to see a lot of signal callers signing new deals with old teams, abandoning ship to new teams, and maybe some just fading into the background. Let's take a look at which teams make the most sense for this free agent class of quarterbacks.

PROSPECT WATCH: NFL Combine Edition

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Kyler Murray is another prospect where the weigh-in may have more of an impact on his draft stock than anything he'll do on the field. Everyone should already know that Murray is an outstanding athlete -- he was drafted in the Top Ten in the MLB for goodness sakes!

SCOUTING PROFILE: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State

QB Dwayne Haskins Ohio State

Haskins is not going to wow with athleticism or create big plays with his legs, but can usually keep plays alive from the pocket long enough to get a pass off. Would benefit from being in a situation similar to Patrick Mahomes at the start of his career where he sits and learns from a veteran quarterback his rookie year.

NFL DRAFT: Mock Draft 2.0

Roquan Smith and Josh Jacobs

Let’s just say the Ronald Jones experiment failed greatly last season. He barely saw the field and was highly ineffective the few times he did. It is safe to say that Tampa Bay is still looking for a legitimate workhorse running back and Josh Jacobs can be that guy.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: All-2018 Team

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

One of the bigger surprises this year, and the top “Waiver Wire Wonder” of the season, is Phillip Lindsay. Denver is a team that over the years has produced some unlikely fantasy gold at the running back position, and I know many owners in leagues that I play in make it a point to make sure several Denver backs are selected on draft day.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Divisional Weekend

WR Keke Coutee HOU

First up are the surging Indianapolis Colts at the Kansas City Chiefs. I sense either brilliance from Patrick Mahomes or another scheme by the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts run-run-run and throw-throw-throw so I see the latter and another road victory this playoff season for the Colts.
