There’s plenty of drama surrounding the Ravens right now.
It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.
The last time these two teams played, it was one of the more important regular season games in recent memory. You may remember the “touchdown” pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate, tabbed the Inaccurate Reception, that essentially ended the referee lockout.
The biggest rule change of the 2014 NFL season won’t require a single edit in the rule book. That’s because, technically, it’s not a change. The league has simply made aggressive play in the defensive backfield a “point of emphasis” Initiating contact five yards beyond the line of scrimmage and illegal hands to the face were always penalties, but now the NFL will be monitoring them more closely.
You don’t need to be a fantasy football guru to know you shouldn’t draft a back-up quarterback. This is especially true if the back-up in question failed to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job.
In-season roster management is key to winning your fantasy football league, but the draft goes a long way towards determining the champ. Value is the most important word when it comes to the draft. Here are a few tips to stay a few moves ahead of your competitors.
Let’s not kid ourselves: a kicker is not going to win you a fantasy title. But in a tight match-up, you’ll take all the points you can get. All of these players are last-round selections, but you might as well have a strategy for crafting your kicker rankings.
One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.
If you’re not only ranking players, but also grouping them in tiers, tight ends are an interesting test case. Jimmy Graham is a one-man tier, with Gronkowski and Julius Thomas, both potential second-round picks, in the next group.
Will new “points of emphasis,” which may limit how defensive backs defend receivers, affect the physical Seahawks? Check back at midseason for an answer. For now, there’s no reason to think the Seahawks will surrender the top spot.
