Chamberlin: The Tank’s House of Purgatory

I am testing my hand at a new product this year designed to help in roster management. It’s called “The Machine” and I will be using it as a reference point in managing both of the dynasty leagues I take part in. I won’t always agree with it. Knowing me, I probably will constantly disagree with it, but I will use it throughout the season to support or argue against what my own analysis says. Today I look at my struggling team in The Tank’s House of Purgatory.

Critiquing The Tank’s NFL Mock Draft – 2014

If I insult you, I’m not sorry. If you’ve read this before, it’s part critique and part satire. It’s based on my opinion, which as we all know isn’t right all the time ... most of the time ... some of the time ... OK, rarely, if ever. I keep my Cleveland Browns fan perspective behind closed doors in all of my other articles, but this is better if it’s seen from the fan perspective, too. After all, that’s how we all watch the draft, right? I do each writeup as I see each pick, so it provides a real life timeline of thoughts rather than just evaluating as a whole when it’s all said and done. I’m sure I’ll shove my foot in my mouth more than a handful of times, so, enjoy!

Fantasy Rookie Draft: Running Backs – Part 1

This may be the year of the wide receiver, the NFL is certainly devaluing the running back, and the quality of prospects at the position is lacking this year. However, this is fantasy football, and the running back position is still a very important position in your quest for a title. Scott Martin and I featured Tre Mason earlier in the offseason; today I will focus on three others.

NFL Draft – Wide Receivers (Part 1)

This year is looking more and more like the year of the wide receiver, it seems fitting to devote an entire article to the position. I’m going to dig more into these Day 2, potential Day 1 types of prospects over the next couple of weeks and help you filter out the starters, role players and the overrated.

Draft Plan 2014 – Free Agency’s Effect

Last week the fantasy world was set ablaze by free agency. NFL teams were trying to improve their roster in accordance with the new $133 million salary cap (what in the heck is the Dallas Cowboys’ plan?). As the week moved on players around the league were being dropped, added, restructured or given a raise. This article covers some of the fallout affecting our 2014 draft plans.

NFL Draft – “Chambo” Evaluates the QBs

I’m flying solo on this mission. Scott Martin is too busy with other skill position players (and kicking my butt in baseball) to contribute to this article. We seem to be eye-to-eye on the top-3 anyway, and the general feel on the rest of the class, so I’m going to do my best to take control from here.

NFL Prospect Analysis – Part 1

Join Marty and Chambo as they dig in to the NFL draft to discuss a projected early round wide receiver which they can't seem to agree on, another wide receiver which is overrated, and a running back they can agree on. Let’s get started!

So with all that in mind, it is never too early to start looking forward to next season. Here are some guys that are emerging and can lead or contribute to your team next season.

2014 Dynasty Targets

Is your team dead in the water this year? Or are you an owner that is always looking ahead even if you're in the thick of the playoff race? Inside I have listed several players you should make a speculative add. right now. Some of these guys are already on rosters while some leagues have a closed trading window and there are even some with locked down waiver wires, so feasibly acquiring them over the next month may not be possible but if it is kick the tires on these guys.

Making Things Personal

This time of year, every single season, players earn a soft place in owners’ hearts. At the same time, however, we have the other side of the coin where players earn the “must avoid” label for future drafts, forever. Take a peek into my roster to see who’s on the fence between best friends forever and “I hate that guy!”

Did Matt McGloin Really Do That?

Confirmation bias is an ugly beast, especially when it comes as strong as mine did with current Oakland Raiders' quarterback Matt McGloin. I am going to do my best to put this aside and give a fair analysis of McGloin, but I must emphasize, with all the bad McGloin football I have seen over the years it’s going to take more than one Sunday afternoon to convince me otherwise.

The Rookie Wall

The NFL season is long, a lot longer than young player’s bodies are used to. Some are able to withstand until the end while others struggle to the finish line. This is most evident with, arguably, the most valuable position in the game, running back. Inside I will evaluate a few key situations with running backs that are currently cogs on many fantasy lineups.

I Was Wrong: A Lesson in Re-Evaluation

Scouting is an imperfect science. What will work with one team might not necessarily work with another. However, a good evaluator will analyze his mistakes and identify where he went astray; patching up those holes for next time. Inside, I do that with Alshon Jeffery.

C.J. Anderson: Dynasty Stash

One of the big stories of the preseason was who will start at running back for the Denver Broncos. It was a popular discussion topic in fantasy circles because whoever would be the feature running back for a Peyton Manning-led offense will assuredly be productive. The same question will represent itself next year too; although one of the candidates hasn’t played a game yet.

Risers and Fallers – Week 7

Continuing with last week’s format and forgoing the traditional game-by-game breakdown, we’ll simply go over the top-10 players with the most value on the line. Which players are looking to grasp elite status and which are simply relying on their names to get by?

A Better Fit: Nick Foles or Michael Vick

One thing that has predictably, and incorrectly, been said from analysts since Chip Kelly’s hire in the NFL is that he needs a running quarterback to effectively run his offense. In this case, perception doesn’t match reality. Nick Foles may not be the long-term solution, but he’s the best of the current options available.
