Early Thoughts on Various Players-Quarterbacks

I’ll be posting random thoughts by position leading up to the start of training camps in late July:
 
 Quarterback
 
 Aaron Rodgers/Green Bay Packers – Did you realize he threw for 28 TDs and totaled 32 TDs (4 rushing TDs) last season? Think about it. He did most of that on a bad right shoulder. Amazing. And all his receivers are back for 2009. Can you think of any reason why he won’t be solid again? Dynasty league owners should know he only turns 26 in December.
 
 Philip Rivers/San Diego Chargers – He averaged 19.5 completions/game, yet he threw for 34 TDs. Another way to look at it is, every 9.1 throws resulted in a TD. Talk about efficiency. He did that last season with Chris Chambers being hurt most of the way and with a weak running game. Rivers seems to be actually pretty safe these days, never thought I’d say that.
 
 Matt Schaub/Houston Texans – While he clearly has as much talent around him as any other QB in the NFL, I still don’t trust that he’ll wind up staying healthy for a full season. He has poor pocket awareness and that results in sacks and injuries. Draft him as your backup.
 
 Carson Palmer/Cincinnati [...]

    Here are the top storylines I’ll be following in Week 11. Kansas City (7-3) at Oakland (0-10) Do the Raiders give more opportunities to Latavius Murray? His snaps and touches are on the rise and that’s expected to continue. Does Mychal Rivera continue to step up and produce for fantasy owners? If so, he’ll likely settle in as a weekly starter if he hasn’t al […]

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor? He should because he’s a huge part of this passing […]

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL? He’s been basically getting to the perimeter and popping off some longer runs, but he’s also run pretty well inside. He moves very well. Can Allen Robinson continue to produce? He just missed a […]
