Being reactive is good

One thing I’m doing this year is being proactive and wisely reactive with our analysis and rankings based on what’s been happening. For example, I’m a DeAngelo Williams fan and have been since day one. I’ve been on record as saying he’s going to be a good NFL back and a productive fantasy option. But he’s not taking the job, and in fact he’s had a few problems staying healthy, so I’m moving his ass down further and further on my list the deeper and deeper we get into August. I’ve been clear on RB Brandon Jackson’s opportunity and potential this summer, but I refused to get totally behind him because he’s struggling in camp and didn’t distinguish himself in the preseason opener. But after playing better this past weekend, and upon hearing that he’s considered way ahead of Vernand Morency, I’m on board with Jackson, and he may continue to get more and more of a backing by me.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    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.
