Another year of fantasy football. I don’t expect to have all the answers and some of these suggestions could be completely wrong. But I will impart my wisdom among you. It’s up to you if you want to believe my advice to be of any value. I may be completely wrong. Good luck in fantasy football this year!
1 – Broncos offense will be on fire again.
Let’s take a look at this offense right now. They didn’t really get worse. The loss of Eric Decker isn’t a huge hit but the potential growth in Montee Ball could be huge. Peyton Manning is still playing at an elite level and the receivers are still very good. I don’t thin the Broncos will repeat the same offensive numbers they did last season but I don’t think they will tail off that much either. If you get a chance to grab a Broncos offensive weapon, do it. Even kicker Matt Prater is the top kicker in the league in my opinion. I think at this point, you should look at how early you want to get at least one of the receiving weapons. It would be a good investment if you did.
I have been a fan of Richard Sherman since his college days and I still am today. He is a great player, he has a swagger to him that isn’t the best, but it is amazing. But most importantly, he is very intelligent and very outspoken. This piece on his friend DeSean Jackson is wonderfully written.
DeSean Jackson could carry a lot of baggage with him to his next team.
The Eagles released DeSean Jackson. That came shortly after this report suggest that Jackson was affiliated with gangs. Jackson later released a statement claiming that he has never been part of a gang.
So what do the wide receiver-needy teams do with Jackson? Do they take him on his word or look at his past and see if that would be baggage they do not want to deal with?
Jackson is coming off a tremendous season and is still very effective on the field. As a speed demon, he’s one of the best. If he’s set out to return punts, he can also make big plays. He’ll also make dumb plays. But if you look at his overall skill, he’s a wide receiver that would be a great addition to any team.
Offseason time for NFL players gives them opportunities to pursue other interests. For Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, that’s making a rap video. Featuring Snoop Dogg (whom doesn’t appear on screen with Jackson throughout the entire video) in Las Vegas, the new song is about swag and bling. Of course.
The song in itself is catchy, but it’s isn’t great. It’s something you’d probably bump on a drive on a freeway without traffic. In traffic, it could cause road rage.
I suppose this is good in comparison to what other NFL players have gotten themselves into this offseason. As long as it’s harmless, I can accept it. I hope this doesn’t distract Jackson from his football career. The song isn’t all that great, so it’s best he focuses on what he’s really good at.
