WTF Was That Guy: Week 2

  Ok, I won’t be digging quite as deeply this week for my WTF guys. But still – with all the RBs who went down in week two, there were a bunch of less than well-known guys racking up stats. Here we go: Buy – Jordan Howard, Chicago: When Chicago was looking for an offensive spark on Monday night against Philadelphia, the rookie from Indiana got his first touches. He averaged more than seven yards per carry. He’s not going to take over the main gig permanently just yet. He might just be in for a handful of carries...

WTF Was That Guy: Week 1

  This new segment will attempt each week, at least for the first eight to 10 weeks of the season, to take a look at outlier stat lines to see who might truly be a contributor to your fantasy football success and whose big weeks may be a mirage. Buy – Quincy Enunwa: NY Jets: It’s my intention to write this column every week, earlier in the week than Friday. So I’m cheating a bit on this one, since Enunwa has played two games already. But I’m all in on him. I was kind of a believer after week...

2016 Vikings = 1980 Raiders? Bradford reclamation starts soon

I had just gotten done throwing a theory out to my cousin Rich, an occasional contributor to this site, about how the 2016 Vikings bore some resemblance to the 1980 Raiders. Just then I heard a producer on 1500 ESPN radio in the Twin Cities theorize that newly acquired QB Sam Bradford may be in a similar situation as Jim Plunkett was during that season 36 years ago. It’s not an apples-for-apples comparison. Plunkett had already been on the Raiders’ roster in 1979, though he threw just 15 passes. He was backing up Dan Pastorini, who had become Oakland’s QB...

Tagliabue, Jones Named Contributor Finalists For Hall of Fame

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones and former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue took the roles they are most known for in the same year and they could go into the Hall of Fame at the same time, as well. Voters selected the pair as Contributor candidates for 2017 enshrinement in Canton, OH. Jones bought the Cowboys in 1989, hiring Jimmy Johnson in controversial fashion to replace Tom Landry as head coach. The duo endured a tough first season but, thanks in part to fleecing Minnesota in a deal for Herschel Walker, enjoyed a few really good seasons and two Super...

Buy or Sell: Donte Moncrief

Donte Moncrief ADP: 66.5 WR: 28 Donte Moncrief headed into the 2015 season with a lot of hype and early on he came through, putting up usable fantasy numbers through six of the first seven games. Then Andrew Luck was injured. Things didn’t spiral down the tubes or anything like that, but Moncrief got a lot more inconsistent. He finished the uneven campaign with 64 catches, 733 yards and six TDs on 105 targets, a fine second season, but short of what his owners had hoped for after the hot start. Now Luck is healthy and the Colts are hoping to rebound from a disappointing 8-8 season. Moncrief is projected to be one of the key pieces of that puzzle, as a complement to T.Y. Hilton and a catalyst on what will have to be a pass-heavy offense. So what will the real Donte Moncrief look like? John Vomhof Jr.: Buy Moncrief is one of this year’s hottest breakout picks, and you can count me among the believers. While he hasn’t emerged as a fantasy star yet, he did appear to be on the cusp of a breakout during his sophomore season in 2015. He reached the end zone in five of the first seven games, as he developed a nice rapport with Luck. Then Luck got hurt and Moncrief’s performance—and the Colts’ season—suffered with a 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck...
