New York Giants 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows

New York Giants 6-10 Welcome to the NFC East Week and the New York Giants 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows. Each week we will go division by division breaking down each team. Highs:  Odell Beckham Jr. ODB!!! Is there anyone else on this team to talk about? He was Offensive Rookie of the Year. He finished his Rookie year fifth best Wide Receiver and that is with missing the first four games. He is a freak in the best way. No one can forget his catch against Dallas where he caught the ball horizontal with three fingers. Seven out of his twelve games he had 15 or more points. They say he only averaged 12.3 fantasy points but if you take his total and divide it by 12 it was actually 16.4, more then the other four in front of him. I can’t say enough about this kid, he is amazing. Eli Manning There are no questions we were all worried about Eli Manning before the 2014 season started. Not only was he recovering from an ankle injury but for the first time in his 10 years in the NFL, he was learning a new offense that was nothing like what he was familiar with. Even with those obstacles, Manning had 4,410 yards passing, 30 touchdowns, and a QB Rating of 92.1. Those are his best stats since 2011. With a year under Ben McAdoo’s offense, Manning should only be better in2015. Lows: Victor Cruz My low for the Giants was Victor Cruz’s injury. When he went out in Week 6 with a torn right patellar tendon there were...

Dallas Cowboys 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows

Dallas Cowboys 12-4   Welcome to the NFC East Week and the Dallas Cowboys 2014 Fantasy Highs and Lows. Each week we will go division by division breaking down each team.   Highs:   Dez Bryant It amazes me that Dez continues to perform and stay healthy every year. In his 2014 season he had 88 receptions, 1320 yards, and 16 touchdowns. That is three more touchdowns then any other receiver last year. Dez is now a franchise player after being tagged this offseason. No long-term deal yet for Dez but he will get paid with stats like his. DeMarco Murray I think we all can agree that DeMarco Murray was the standout for the Cowboys. He averaged 17 fantasy points a game. He had five games with 20 or more points and had eight games in a row with over 100 yards rushing. He had another four games over 100 yards rushing as well, for a grand total of 1845 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns and another 416 yards receiving. He was the clear number one running back of 2014 behind a very talented offensive line. Murray has found a new home for the 2015 season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Both Murray and Chip Kelly think this will be a very good match. After being run to the ground and switching teams only time will tell if Murray can be as successful this year as he was last year.   Lows:   Terrance Williams My first low was Terrance Williams. I love Dez but Dez could have been even better if the Cowboys opened up that offense using...

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...
