Moulds, McCardell, Meaningless

Okay, so maybe they’re not totally meaningless, but I’m not too concerned about the additions of Eric Moulds and Keenan McCardell in terms of the potential of the younger receivers on the Titans and Texans. In Tennessee, Moulds will give them a veteran presence, and that was needed with the injury to David Givens and the youth they have elsewhere at the position. But I’m not too worried about Brandon Jones. I like Jones, but I don’t have any delusions about him emerging as a major fantasy force. He’s a nice guy to grab for depth, and he still is. Moulds should, however, make all other Titan wideouts irrelevant. As for McCardell, he didn’t just hit a wall last year – he slammed into it. I really don’t think he has much left in the tank, but I certainly understand why he was brought in. The Texans have an incredibly weak receiving corps after stud Andre Johnson, so guys like Kevin Walter and especially Jacoby Jones should benefit from the veteran’s presence.

    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
