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 […]

12-Team Mock Draft Review

I did another mock draft last night, this one for Lindys magazine, which will be on newsstands in roughly 6-8 weeks. I cannot post the whole draft, but I can quickly review my picks with some thoughts. As usual, I lost interest toward the end and stopped crossing guys off my list, but it was a pretty solid draft, nevertheless.

This was a 12-team mock, non-PPR, 6 points for rushing/receiving TDs and 4 points for passing TDs. I had the 3rd overall pick.

1st round – I took Ray Rice over LeSean McCoy even though it’s a non-PPR and McCoy scored 20 TDs. I don’t think McCoy comes close to that number this year, whereas Rice scored 15 TDs and had more rushing and receiving yards in 2011.

2nd round – Looking for impact players, I gladly take Jimmy Graham, who I apparently reached for in the previous draft at 12 overall.

3rd round – Still looking for studs, preferably young ones, I took A.J. Green over Michael Vick, who I felt had a chance to slip to me in the 4th (missed him by one pick).

4th round – I don’t want to get pinched at QB, so I grabbed the usually reliable Tony […]

  • Brolley MFL10 Review (5/27/15) May 27, 2015
    I recently completed my first ever MFL10 with subscribers and Twitter followers. I’m using MFL10s to get draft practice and to get an early feel for where players could be drafted later this summer. I’ve also done an industry draft – you can call it an “expert draft” if you’d like – so I’m already two […]

  • Fantasy Kickers and the New Extra-Point Rule May 20, 2015
    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

  • MFL10 Review: May 15, 2015 May 15, 2015
    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague. It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]
