Playoff Watch

It is about that time of the year, we are half way through the season, and it is time to start thinking about playoffs! Seeing as how everyone will be involved in some sort of playoffs, it is important to see how your team is doing in comparison to everyone else in the league. The playoff bracket as it currently stands is as follows.

Waiver Wire Roundup

 

This week was a big week on the waiver wire due to injuries to key players across the league. Add in the fact that there has been very little tight end production, and almost every team needed some help on the back end of their rosters. That is of course excluding Jay who’s team is so bad that he didn’t need any help. I am starting to think he is losing on purpose so he can show how smart he is on the ACT.

Quarterbacks: The first move was Kamp making the smart move of dropping the injured Jimmy Garoppolo for Ravens QB Joe Flacco. The only other QB transaction this week was Kamp proceeding to drop Flacco for Alex Smith. What a wild card that GM is.

Runningbacks: This was a disaster week for starting running backs throughout the league. Prominent backs like Adrian Peterson, Jonathan Stewart, Doug Martin and of course Danny Woodhead were hurt and are all expected to miss quite some time. Andy proceeded to take the first running back off the board with the now backup in Carolina with Fozzy Whitaker. With only Kenyan Drake, Matt Asiata and Dwayne Washington coming off of the board, many teams are going to need to find other alternatives to their running back problems.

Wide Receivers: Carston snagged Cole Beasley, and then dropped Beasley, who then was picked up by Bs who dropped Nelson Agholor (Christinia Aguilera) after he had picked Agholor up about 16 hours earlier. That is where we are in the league right now gentlemen. In other news, Kanz traded slot guys, picking up Jamison Crowder and dropping Eli Rogers.

Tight End: A lot of moves took place in the Tight End department during week 3. Kanz and Lopatin snagged the top options for the week by nabbing Falcons Tight End Jacob Tamme and the resurgent No-hippa Pitta. Carston took the third option in Steeler Outlaw Jesse James, and Visbara gave up on the Jimmy Graham project, if any one was interested in a guy with no knees.

Hurricane Ditka, Team Previews

Team Preview: Carston

troy-boltoncarston-team

General Manager Carston Clark leads Hurricane Ditka into their 5th season in the league. After back to back seasons missing the playoffs, he really needs a bounce back year to keep spirits high in the locker room. It should be said with absolute certainty that Hurricane Ditka will win the championship in 2016. Why? Because GM Clark believes in his team and is also the one who writes these previews.

 

QB’s: B-

 

The San Diego Chargers had a season filled with Injuries last season. Both receivers Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd were lost for the season, and the offensive line was a rotating door of guys coming in and out of the lineup. This had a major effect on Philip Rivers and the offense as a whole. Despite all of this, Rivers was able to put together an average of 22.4 Fantasy points per game, and pair that with the fact that Rivers has been a top 10 fantasy quarterback in 7 of the last 10 years, and it is safe to consider him in the middle of the QB1 range. Hurricane Ditka also sports Andy Dalton in their starting lineup. Dalton was in the middle of a career year in 2015, before getting injured in week 14. He was averaging 20.98 points per game, which had him ranked just behind Russell Wilson for 3rd in the NFL. I expect some regression with the losses of Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and Tyler Eifert’s Injury, but it is reasonable to expect Carston to have two serviceable quarterbacks.

 

RBs: A-

 

David Johnson had a breakout finish to his rookie season. In the final 5 games in which he started for the Arizona Cardinals, Johnson averaged 22.96 points per game. GIven that it was a small sample size, it is no guarantee that he can continue with that production, but with his pass catching ability and his power running style, he is worth every penny. HD’s other star running back is headed a different direction. Jamaal Charles has been a superstar in the league for quite some time. In years he has been healthy, Charles has been a top 10 running back every year but one since he entered the league and was the top running back in 2014. But after having an ACL tear for the second time last season, Hurricane Ditka should be concerned about what he can bring to the table in 2016. That may put the pressure on Latavius Murray who was third in rush attempts in 2015. With Jack Del Rio saying that he would like Murray to have even more touches, it is safe to say that if healthy, his #10 2015 running back ranking may be just the floor for Murray.

 

WR’s : B-

 

After taking running backs with his first two picks, Carston Clark got quite lucky with Demaryius Thomas falling to him in the third round. Since 2012, Thomas has never had less than 1,300 Yards and 140 Targets, and there is no way quarterback play can be that much worse than it was in 2015 with Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. Donte Moncrief should be viewed as receiver 1a for the Indianapolis Colts behind TY Hilton. Moncrief and Andrew Luck were creating quite the connection before luck went down to Injury last season. Add in the production of new Lions receiver Marvin Jones, who outperformed Golden Tate in the preseason, and a trio of 1st or 2nd year receivers in Devin Funchess, Sterling Shepard, and Tajae Sharpe and Clark should be able to find a group that can give him better than average production.

 

TE: C

 

Zach Miller is a guy, that’s about it. He did have games of 28,19,13, and 11 points last season, and with Martellus Bennett out of town, he will be the #1 guy, but still. Not a lot should be expected of the Bears TE.
