You Can’t Make This Up (From NFL Network)…

Deshaun Watson threw every other pass off target last night, and mostly floundered passing in the red zone. The Network talking heads fell over themselves to proclaim how great Watson looked. He didn’t, but OK…that’s their view (going in). All kinds of rave review headlines for Watson on his performance last night.

The Bears insert Mitchell Trubisky right before the half, he leads a hurry up offense right down the field (4-for-4 passing) capped by a TD pass…looking every bit an elite QB all the way. Halftime analysis on Trubisky from ‘the guys’…”Let’s not get too excited. It’s just the preseason.”

Why are you Bears fans so swayed by these idiots pushing a narrative anti-Trubisky? You’re depressed by your team trading up for him? Let’s talk in a decade and see what you think about the move…as Trubisky is a perennial Pro Bowl’er and you can’t remember the difference between Geno Smith and Deshaun Watson.



The 2017 Fantasy Football Draft Guide package has arrived! Now available: 2017 FFM Draft Guide Package

Our seventh annual edition over at Fantasy Football It’s a fantasy draft guide like none other – updated nearly every day from our June launch to opening kickoff. 600+ players projected with thousands of words of commentary for the 2017 season based on our tape scouting, computer/analytics/Moneyball models for the 2017 season and the impact of the schedule. We update all the projections and data daily up to kickoff of the regular season.

We nailed it out of the gates on Jordan Howard, Tyrell Williams, Rishard Matthews and so many more in 2016 – pulling sleepers out of thin air and avoiding many landmines. And of course, David Johnson as our ‘top guy’ for 2016…just like we had him rated higher than anyone else in the dynasty rookie draft in 2015, a major sleeper in our 2015 fantasy football draft guide and ranked #1 among all fantasy options going into 2016…we never wavered. You need to know about these guys before everyone else…not debating how high to rank them once they are stars – anyone can do that. We find talent and value year-round, ahead of the masses.

We have several new ‘things’included for 2017. It’s our most ambitious draft guide package ever and we’re still adding more data views to it every week throughout the preseason to opening kickoff.
