Just missed it: Week Four

Once again, here are some RAW NOTES from our film reviews for the week that outline some big plays that were just missed in Week Four.

Sam Bradford missed any easy corner throw to Austin Pettis for a possible TD, two defensive backs jumped Tavon Austin route, pretty unacceptable throw.
Brandon Marshall could only get one foot down in end zone on 23-yard pass down sideline.
Calvin Johnson just can’t make a deep catch in the back of the end zone, as Matthew Stafford’s throw just a touch late
Alshon Jeffery drops a TD pass in end zone but catches the next throw against Slay in the end zone.
Marques Colston almost fought off double coverage for a TD at end of game
Mike Wallace had pass go right through his hands on a deep ball perfectly thrown by Tannehill
About 8 minutes Eli Manning to Hakeem Nicks on 1st and 10 at own 48, Nicks had ball go thru his hands on what could’ve been a 52-yard TD. As it turned out, Giants were penalized for holding on play so would’ve nullified the play anyway.
Alex Smith for Donnie Avery ahead of defender on left sideline for a big play, but he overthrew him.
Here’s one you don’t […]

Top-10 preseason questions

There are always questions that need to be asked as we head into each preseason, but this year many of these key questions have significant fantasy implications.

I probably have about 40 questions that I’d like to see answered – and we’ll obviously be all over them this summer. But for the purposes of this post here’s the top-10 on my mind:

Will Robert Griffin III be back?

He said as the team wrapped up their off-season that he’s ahead of schedule with his recovery from ACL and LCL surgeries, and that he’s had no setbacks and is confident he’ll be ready to participate when training camp opens. He’s been through this process before, so he should know what it’s like. If he’s back to his old self, then the team will continue to use plenty of zone-read plays, which means his upside is still high. His completion […]

    We recently received an email to the website asking us our personal feelings of the so-called “Zero RB” strategy that’s popped up in fantasy circles, but only seems to have exploded in recent years.
