The Next Matt Schaub?

I spent most of today updating our keeper rankings on the site, taking into account all the free agent and player movement activity. It’s an extremely tedious and time-consuming process, especially when there’s significant movement, but that’s not really my point here today.

There are still roughly 15 good players at the position, but that means more than half the teams in the league have a shaky option – or a terrible one. And forget about young prospects; they don’t really exist. I’m sure the proliferation of spread/shotgun offenses in college have something to do with this, but there’s also an odd dearth in prototypical passers out there lately (which is exactly why everyone should be looking out for John Skelton out of Fordham, since he’s a physically impressive QB whose size and arm strength compare to Joe Flacco’s).

  • 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 […]
