Beitrag The rough road Jones faced in Week 1 doesn’t get
With one week in the books , fantasy football players are in the “was it real or was it an illusion?” mode.Lamar Jackson probably isn’t that good (but the Dolphins may be that bad), Dak Prescott isn’t likely going to flirt with 5,000 passing yards, Sammy Watkins can’t get every target and the Steelers offense won’t endure a season settling for field goals.Week 2 will offer clarity to the above. At the same time, consistency is a beautiful thing to have, especially if you have fantasy players mentioned here.START: Tom Brady, QB, Patriots: He’s a must-start even if Antonio Brown doesn’t play. Brady has done some of his best work for fantasy players against the Dolphins, having thrown at least five touchdown passes in five of his past six games versus Miami. He’s also thrown for at least 274 yards in six of his past 10 outings against Miami, making him a solid bet to pick up where he left off against the Steelers on Sunday night.SIT: Jared Goff, QB, Rams: The lingering effects of his Super Bowl struggles appeared to have carried over. Goff was 23 for 39 for 186 yards in Week 1. The Saints had the third-worst fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks in Week 1 and while the matchup is tempting, the risk of starting Goff looks higher than the reward.START: Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars: Yes, Fournette will get the bulk of the carries against a Texans defense that was 28th in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs in Week 1. What places him here is that he was targeted six times. Rookie Gardner Minshew will look in Fournette’s direction frequently, especially since the Texans allowed nine receptions and 76 yards to Saints running backs on Monday night.SIT: Phillip Lindsay, RB, Broncos: Lindsay will get a high volume of touches, but those touches won’t garner much fantasy impact going against the Bears defense. Chicago allowed just 2.16 yards per carry to Green Bay running backs in Week 1 and limited them to just 15 receiving yards. If Lindsay struggles, the door could open for Royce Freeman to steal touches from him.START: Sammy Watkins, WR, Chiefs: No Kansas City wide receiver other than Watkins was targeted after Tyreek Hill went down with a shoulder injury. Watkins, who was targeted 11 times on Sunday Danny Trevathan Color Rush Jersey , shapes up to be the biggest beneficiary of Hill’s absence, has six catches for 118 yards and a touchdown in two games against the Raiders, whom he will see Sunday.SIT: Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals: He’ll likely draw Richard Sherman as his shadow for much of the game. Even at times when Boyd won’t see Sherman, he will face a 49ers secondary that allowed a 43.7% completion rate to Buccaneers wide receivers in Week 1. Boyd will see his share of targets, but will be draped by the 49ers most of the time.START: Jimmy Graham, TE, Packers: Graham looked like his old self at times in Week 1 and should continue to do so against the Vikings. Falcons tight ends had a 90% catch rate against Minnesota in Week 1 and with the Packers looking to be more aggressive than against the Bears, Graham should benefit, especially in the red zone.SIT: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions: Don’t count on the rookie to repeat his 131-yard outing against the Cardinals. The Chargers do a good job of taking tight ends out of the game and picked up where they left off in Week 1, allowing just 31 yards on six targets. Hockenson has the makings of being a fantasy standout, but his star won’t shine on Sunday.START: Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons: The Eagles secondary will help Ryan be near top-five status among fantasy quarterbacks. Philly gave up 380 yards to Case Keenum in Week 1 and will present Ryan a great opportunity to improve on his 9.2 yards per completion from the loss to Minnesota. Look for Ryan to at least equal Keenum’s four completions of better than 20 yards.SIT: Aaron Jones, RB, Packers: The rough road Jones faced in Week 1 doesn’t get easier against the Vikings, who allowed a combined 71 yards on 19 touches to Falcons running backs (3.7 yards per touch). Jones’ best bet for fantasy potential will be near the goal line, but fantasy players will be better off using another option instead of hoping Jones’ number is called in the red zone.START: Michael Gallup, WR, Cowboys: His seven receptions for 148 yards weren’t a fluke. With defenses drawing much of their focus on RB Ezekiel Elliott and WR Amari Cooper, Gallup will have favorable matchups against the Redskins. Gallup could have a similar day against Washington that Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson had in Week 1.SIT: Marlon Mack Cody Whitehair Jersey , RB, Colts: The Titans defense made Nick Chubb a non-factor in Week 1 and will do the same to Mack. Despite coming off a 174-yard, two-TD outing at the Chargers, Mack doesn’t project to come anywhere close to duplicating those totals. He’ll be even less of a factor if Indianapolis has to play catch-up, meaning Nyheim Hines would have more value.START: Calvin Ridley, WR, Falcons: He should have more than the six targets he netted in Week 1, especially against the Eagles. In what should be a high-scoring matchup, Ridley is in a position to be a major fantasy contributor.SIT: Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans: Yes, Mariota rebounded from a sluggish first half and tossed three touchdown passes against the Browns, but fantasy owners shouldn’t put much stock in a quarterback who struggles to complete half of his passes. Obviously, there is a lot to be disappointed about in the 2019 Chicago Bears. The regression of Bust-in-Progress Mitchell Trubisky is probably the biggest frustration, with the collapse of Nagy’s offensive aspirations as the leading competitor. However those two issues are ranked relative to one another, they should probably be the first two listed. The erratic failures of Eddy Pineiro need to be mentioned, too. However, there are lesser issues, as well.1). The Mack-Pagano DisconnectMaybe Mack is having an off year, but this year has seen a dramatic fall-off in his production in a very short time, and Sunday night’s game illustrated why. The point of having a versatile edge player like Leonard Floyd is that this frees up a dominant edge rusher like Mack to attack the quarterback.Instead, time after time, Mack is dropped into coverage. He is tasked with playing like a general linebacker, even , not even an edge rusher. In short, his talents are being misused. This might account for his low numbers, because a player like Mack (like many running backs, honestly) need to be able to work at their position to find their angles and to set up their successes. Mack is not being given the chance to do that. This is not to take the blame completely off of Mack, however. He is obviously not producing when given the opportunity.The Pagano defensive system, nonetheless, is not helping out Mack at all. To borrow an overused phrase, Pagano is being too cute. Instead of putting his best players at the positions of their greatest strengths, he is preferring exotic looks. It’s feels sort of like when Devin Hester saw fewer returns so he could work on his skills as a wide receiver. 2). The Hiestand ShuffleJames Daniels was a highly-touted, highly-gifted, and highly-drafted interior lineman who settled into his role as a left guard last season. Cody Whitehair saw his first Pro Bowl as a center. Harry Hiestand is a widely-lauded offensive line coach. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that Hiestand flipped Whitehair and Daniels, right? Obviously, there are a number of explanations for why the offensive line has struggled.Leno is on the wrong side of 27, Massie was always just a functional piece, and Kyle Long has been replaced with Rashaad Coward. Perhaps more importantly, the offensive blocking scheme has clearly been prioritized to favor the passing game. However, it would be inaccurate to say that Daniels and Whitehair thrived in their new position.So, of course, the two players have returned to their original position. This sort of shuffling is disadvantageous to an offensive line, which relies on consistency. It’s bad for player development, and it can result in the much-dreaded DMS. Ultimately, however, the fact remains that the offensive line has talent but it is not providing any sort of advantage to the team (they are 23rd in DVOA for pass protection and 28th for run protection) Akiem Hicks Color Rush Jersey , and that’s disappointing given that the unit was a strength last season (7th in DVOA in DVOA for pass protection).3). David MontgomerySome of Montgomery’s lack of production is probably due to the offensive line, and some of it is probably due to the ineptitude of his quarterback. However, Montgomery was the highest overall pick the Bears had for 2019, but with a DVOA of -10.2% (27th in the league) on a pace for barely a thousand yards from scrimmage, Montgomery is following in the footsteps of other Ryan Pace third-round picks: Hroniss Grasu, Jonathan Bullard, and trade-up to get Trubisky. In other words, he’s on the field, sure, but he’s underwhelming (3.48 yards per attempt, or 39th among qualifying running backs). Thanks to favorable rounding, he has the same yards per attempt as Jeremy Langford (though fewer yards per reception).4).Roster ManagementDoes it matter that the Bears spent a 7th-rounder on Kerrith Whyte Jr. only to have him signed off the practice squad by another team? Probably not. Does it matter that they have likewise gotten zero snaps out of Stephen Denmark and Riley Ridley? I guess not. How about the fact that Duke Shelley has only played 37 snaps to date? Well, umm…In essence, the Bears have positioned their roster so that the entire draft class of 2019 amounts to David Montgomery. More than that, after the top three selections in 2018, they only drafted players redundant with other draftees or free agent signings. If the team were flush with draft picks, this might make sense. However, there is no sign that the roster is being developed, and so the Bears are bringing the same converted swing tackle back as tight end repeatedly instead of kicking the tires on Dax Raymond, and they are stashing extra wide receivers on the practice squad instead of taking a flier on a quarterback or guard.Emery was criticized for leaving a bare cupboard when Pace came in. What is being left in the cupboard for whomever is the GM in 2021? Hitting on late-rounders doesn’t matter as much when a team is getting excellent production out of its early-rounders. Adam Shaheen would be an excellent late-rounder.
