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.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
