Arizona Cardinals 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows

Arizona Cardinals 11-5   Welcome to the NFC West Week and the Arizona Cardinals 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows. Each week we will go division by division breaking down each team.   The Cardinals have made some moves this offseason and restructured some contracts leaving a lot more cap space. Rumors are that the Cardinals are very interested in Peterson if the Vikings are willing to do a trade. If the Peterson trade does not happen we are looking at a very similar team to draft from in our 2015 fantasy drafts.   Highs:   My biggest high for the Cardinals in 2014 was Bruce Arians. You may be saying that doesn’t affect my fantasy team, but Coaches can have a huge impact on who you start. Arians won Coach of the Year and to me there was no real competition. He was hired on by the Cardinals before the 2013 season and led the team to a 10-6 record. That was double the wins the previous season. The Cardinals improved from 32nd overall on offense to 12th and 12th on defense to 6th. He is making this team better, which is making them better for fantasy.   After Carson Palmer tore his ACL in week 9 there was never that fantasy star coming out of Arizona. Palmer was right about 18 fantasy points in each game he played so in a two Quarterback league or if you had Kaepernick or RG3 he was a great play. He signed a huge contract right before getting injured, which was restructured so the Cardinals could save $7 million in cap space....

Carolina Panthers 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows

Carolina Panthers 7-8   Welcome to the NFC South Week and the Carolina Panthers 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows. Each week we will go division by division breaking down each team. There was nothing amazing about this team last year. They might have made it through to the second round of playoffs, but struggled to get to the Superbowl with some key holes in their team.   Highs:   Greg Olsen Greg Olsen, Mr. Consistent, was great averaging 8 fantasy points, which is all we want from our Tight Ends in fantasy. The Panthers know when they have a good thing. They signed Olsen to a three-year deal $22.5 million for an extension through 2018.     Kelvin Benjamin Rookie Kelvin Benjamin was defiantly a Rookie but finished in the top 20 receivers. That really doesn’t say much since he was the only receiver on the team unlike the other two Rookies that had more fantasy points (ODB and Mike Evans) that had to fight for targets. Still Benjamin had over 1000 yards and 9 touchdowns.   Lows:   DeAngelo Williams My low was DeAngelo Williams. A lot of people drafted him but by the end of the season not many people owned him. He only played in 6 games this season, had a total of 263 yards and zero touchdowns. He was quickly replaced by Jonathan Stewart who wasn’t that bad. He had three games over 10 fantasy points in the last five weeks of the season. Obviosely the Carolina Panthers agreed with me because Williams for cut. He has since signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers for a...

Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Football Check In

Minnesota Vikings 2014 will be one of learning and rebuilding on both ends of the game. Although there are a few big names to draft, there are more questions then answers. Find your draft questions answered with the Minnesota Vikings fantasy football check in.   Only Mike Zimmer Knows – Quarterback   Last year’s stats: The presumed starter Matt Cassel played in 9 games and had 1807 yards, 11 TDs, 9 INTs and 1 FUM. Christian Ponder who is rumored to be traded played in 9 games and had 1648 yards, 7 TDs, 9 INTs, and 4 FUM. At the end of the season they had the same amount of fantasy points with 107. And then there is Rookie Teddy Bridgewater that will be fighting for the starting spot this offseason.   Things to like: There is nothing that I like about drafting a Minnesota QB. They have plenty of weapons to use but this will be a learning year or rebuilding year either way.   Reasons to pause: Where do I start? We suggest never drafting a rookie QB if Teddy Bridgewater is named starter. This will be a new offense for everyone to learn. It will take sometime to adjust before we see any great numbers coming from the Minnesota QBs. If it isn’t clear not to draft one of these QBs yet having Adrian Peterson on your team should really seal the deal. He is the number one guy for the Vikings not one of the receivers.   Adrian Peterson – Running Back Last year’s stats: In 14 games Peterson ran for 1266 yards, had 10 TDs, another TD...

Will New Offensive Coordinator Help New York Giants?

Will new offensive coordinator help New York Giants? Ben McAdoo hopes that he is the man to do the job. In an offseason that saw a shuffling of some of the NFL’s top talent, there has also been a major change of offensive coordinators. A new coordinator can bring renewed hope to those offenses that struggled last year and if you heard Brandon Lee on our Her Fantasy Football Podcast last season you know the Giants were definitely one of the offenses that needed a change. Beware, a new coordinator does not always mean immediate success, in fact a new coordinator means learning a new system instead of refining an old one.   McAdoo comes from the Green Bay Packers where he was most recently the QBs coach. Not a bad addition if you consider that Eli Manning is coming off the worse season of his NFL career. His expertise will no doubt help the struggling QB, but the biggest factor for the Giants success this year will be their offensive line.   While many people will say that Eli is a horrible QB after last year’s performance, there was an underlying reason for his play: the offensive line. The line was terrible last year, one of the worst in the league. The Giants were very busy this offseason by accruing OT Charles Brown, G’s Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry as free agents. They opted to take WR Odell Beckham Jr. with their first round pick and waited till the second round to add C Weston Richburg from Colorado State. History has taught us that a team can have the best skill...

Chris Johnson Heads To The New York Jets

Chris Johnson heads to the New York Jets after agreeing to terms on a deal. Johnson came to the free agency market on April 4th. There were rumors of a few teams that were interested in signing Johnson but after a day with the Jets on Tuesday and a night full of what New York can offer him, Johnson decided he was the missing part of the Circus in New York. After being drafted in 2008 to the Tennessee Titans, Johnson has rushed for almost 8,000 yards, over 2,000 yards receiving, and has 50 TDs. Johnson is a 3-time Pro Bowler and 1-time First-Team All-Pro and is capable to adding to his already impressive stats. The Jets also picked up WR Eric Decker and his reality T.V. Show and QB Michael Vick who comes from a history of drama during the 2014 off-season. So what does this mean for fantasy football. Well we will now give the Jets a second look when drafting our teams. Hopefully all three names mentioned above will be forgotten and  you can get them for a great value.   NFL Free Agency 2014: New York Jets sign former Tennessee Titans RB Chris...
