Week 13 Game Reviews

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

Ravens

- When watching parts of this game on Sunday, I thought they were in shotgun formation more. They actually came out in many one back sets under center with Le’Ron McClain getting the carries.

- One of the more underrated traits about Joe Flacco is that he looks to extend passing plays by moving around in the pocket. He won’t throw the ball away unless he has to.  A great example of this was his first quarter 40-plus yard completion to Mark Clayton.

- Later in the quarter, he waited as long as he could then ran for a first down.

- McClain is so hard to bring down. He had many runs getting yards after first contact.

I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
