Chain Mover
MVP

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Cam decided to make 2015 his bitch by leading the fantasy world as the #1 overall fantasy player in standard leagues all while playing without his top WR, Kelvin Benjamin.

(+) Newton's talent and jactation has made him a superstar and a lightning rod though he is primed to lead the fantasy world in points again in 2016 and be the top QB drafted.

(+) Newton out of High School:  Scout:4/5 stars   Rivals:5/5 stars   247Sports:4/5 stars    ESPN grade: 81  Shows Newton's gifted career started early.

(+) Cam is the only player to be awarded the Heisman Trophy, win a national championship, and be selected the first overall pick in an NFL draft within a one-year span.

(+) The 6'5" 245 Cameron Jerrell Newton out of Auburn ran a 4.59 forty at the NFL Combine and became the #1 overall draft pick in 2011

(+) In his rookie season he became the first NFL quarterback to throw for 400 yards in his first game with 422 and then the next week threw for 433.

(+) #1 his rookie season ran for 14 touchdowns, more in a single season than any quarterback in NFL history showing a threat not seen to this level before in the NFL.

(+) Cam's 2015 season saw the first QB in NFL history to throw for at least 30 touchdowns and rush for 10 in the same season (35 passing, 10 rushing) with Just 14 turnovers.

(+) During the 2015 season Cam passed for 3,837 yards while rushing for 636, 4 weeks with 5 total TDs, only 3 games with 1 or fewer TDs and a respectable 99.4 QBR.

(+) Cam Newton's Under Armour cleats were on fire leading him to 4.8 YPC, 100 yards rushing week 15 while posting 6 games with 10 or more rushing attempts in 2015.

(+) 2015 saw a season where Newton tied Steve Young's record for the most career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in far fewer years in the league.

(-) The sometimes gormless Cam was arrested on felony charges (2008) of burglary, larceny, and obstruction of justice while at the U of Florida regarding a stolen laptop.

(-) Dec 9, 2014 - QB Cam Newton has back fractures after truck accident leading to the joke, "Another Cam Newton drive Ends in a turnover."

(-) In 2015 Cam ranked just 20th in the NFL with 296 completions and Cam only had five games with over 300 total yards.

Sleeper
Bitch Please

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Luck is coming off a down season that should keep his draft spot down after being a bonifide first rounder heading into last season

(+) Luck threw for 15 touchdowns in just seven games played last season

(+) #12’s 18.7 fantasy points a game last season were still the second highest of his career

(+) Andrew is an intelligent quarterback who will correct his flaws from 2015 and rebound this year passing to a solid young group including; Hilton, Moncrief and Dorsett.

(+) The Stanford alum is also an athlete for his position who will add some fantasy points with his legs

(+) Luck has a supporting cast of wide receivers that will be among the best in the league as they all possess speed to burn

(-) Andrew looked very lost and confused last season, rushing to get rid of the ball due to a horrible offensive line which will need to be upgraded this offseason, PRONTO!

(-) The offensive line is a work in progress and needs to play better and keep Luck on the field for this team to return to the playoffs

(-) Andrew threw 12 interceptions in just 7 games last season

(-) Luck will have a new offensive coordinator in Rod Chudzinski calling plays for him this season after two plus seasons of Pep Hamilton

(-) Luck completed just 55% of his passes last season and his career high mark is under 62% leaving a lot to be desired

(+) 58 rushing attempts, only 5 QBs had more

(+) 5th most rushing yards amongst QBs

(+) Finished as a QB1 in 12 team leagues in nearly 44% of his games last year

(+) Only 2 QBs passed it more inside the opposing team’s 10 yard line

(+) Mr. Munn has put up at least 28 passing TDs in every season he has played in at least 10 games

(-) Major hands issues from his wide receivers (Adams, Cobb, Jones dropped 25 catchable balls this season)

(-) 2nd most sacked QB in the league in 2015

(-) According to PFF, of his 46 sacks, 31 were a direct result of poor offensive line play

(-) 2015 was his least accurate year as a passer, putting up a career low 60.7% completion percentage

Giggity
Money

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Finished 3rd in total FF Points (342.3) and 3rd in FF Points per game (21.4)

(+) Consistent, only 6 QBs averaged at least 20 FF Points per game last season

(+) In a 12 team league, Mr. Wilson put up QB#1 numbers 62.5% of the time in 2015, 10 of 16 games

(+) Of those 10 QB#1 games last season, he was in the top 6 eight different times, in other words, he was a top 6 QB 50% of the time last season

(+) Positive rushing TD regression should occur, after rushing for 6 TDs in 2014, he did so just once last year

(+) 3rd most rushing attempts (103) out of all NFL QBs last season

(+) 3rd most red zone rushing attempts (11) last season

(-) Career year beware, the former Badger put up statistical bests in pass attempts, completions, passing yards, and passing TDs

(-) Only 4 teams had fewer passing attempts per game in 2015

(-) With Thomas Rawls rising to prominence, this team could easily revert back to its run-heavy ways

(-) “Wilson, I lay this hate on you” says Phish and Paul Charchian. Paul has named Wilson a bust candidate in 2016

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Only one team had a higher percentage of their red zone TDs come from the running game 56%

(+) PFF rated AP as the 12th most elusive back

(+) With 50 missed/broken tackles, only 1 RB boasted a higher number

(+) With .37 FF Points per snap, only 6 RBs produced more fantasy relevance per snap

(+) 2nd most yards after contact (767)

(+) Only 1 RB had more than AP’s 47 red zone rushing attempts

(+) 17 rushes that went for at least 15 yards or more, only 1 back could boast more

(+) Consistency baby! 75% of #28’s games resulted in either 100 yards from scrimmage and/or a TD

(-) Out of the top 20 RB,s AP was tied for third fewest receptions

(-) In fact, PFF graded him as the 5th worst pass catching back out of 68 RBs.

(-) Without a viable threat coming from the passing game, AP will continue to see opposing defenses pack the box

(-) His 327 rushing attempts led the NFL and will contribute to wear and tear

(-) Fumbles still an issue. His 6 led all running backs in 2015, losing 4

(+) ODB has a skillset few can lay claim to with game breaking speed a sick catch radius and hands a golden glover it is as though he has possession of the infinity gauntlet and applies it to football

(+) The LSU alum passed Randy Moss as the player with the most receiving yards in his first two seasons.

(+) He can win you weeks almost singlehandedly his target volume and uncanny ability to take it to the house on any given play should make him a lock for top three fantasy receiver in 2016

(+) 3,4,5… Becks finished 3rd in the NFL in receiving yards per game with 96.7 4th in the league with 13 receiving TDs and 5th overall with 1,450 yards in 2015

(+) ODB has played 27 career games, just six games where he does not have 100 yards or a touchdown, his averaged 4.8 for 55 yards in those games

(+) Is as consistent as they come with also that ability to break out for a big game with 5 games over 20 fantasy points in standard

(-) Hothead at times can he control his temper caused his owners grief last season when he was suspended week 16 and wasn't available for fantasy championships

High Volume

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Julio was the #2 rated wide receiver in standard fantasy football leagues during 2015 and is the Falcons top banana as he continues to make Matt Ryan look half decent.              

(+) Quintorris Lopez Jones in high school was the state champion in the long jump (24-2 or 7.40m) , triple jump (47-5 or 14.52m) and high jump (6-6 or 1.98m).               

(+) Jones was the 2006-07 Gatorade T&F Athlete of the Year in the state of Alabama and Julio won Mr. Alabama Track & Field athlete of the year in 2007.              

(+) Julio was honored as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com,[7] Jones was listed as the No. 1 wide receiver in the nation in 2008.              

(+) Jones in college led Alabama to an undefeated 14–0 season including a victory in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.              

(+) Quintorris at the 2011 NFL Combine had the longest long jump and the third fastest 40-yard dash (4.39) among receivers despite having a broken bone in his foot.              

(+) #11 made scotch woodcock out of defenders in 2015 with 136 catches for 1,871 yards and eight touchdowns, the catches and yards are the second most in league history.              

(+) The 5th year WR measures 6'3" at 220 and is a physical dominator who enforces his will on corners while having a career 15 yards per catch average over his career.              

(+) This three time Pro-Bowler in 2015 averaged 116.9 yards per game, 9 of 10 weeks over 100 yards, 6 weeks over 140 yards and throw in 8 touchdown receptions.              

(+) Julio in 2015 scored 2 touchdowns in a games twice, a 70 yard TD, led the NFL with 25 catches over 20 yards and led all NFL wide receivers with 93 first down receptions.              

(+) Mr. Jones like clockwork had 14 weeks of 16 with a reception of 20 yards or longer showing his ability to snare long yardage for his fantasy owners.               

(-) Everyone who considers drafting Julio will keep in mind that he did suffer a "Jones fracture" in the 2013 season.              

(-) Jones does lay the ball on the ground time to time but, most players do as he fumbled three times in 2015 but only lost one of them.              

(-) Prior to the 2015 season Julio would on occasion rush with the ball as he had 14 rushes over his career but zero last season as Atlanta does not want to push their luck.

(-) Green Bay led the league in points per game in 2014 with 30.4. Last season, they averaged 23 points per game, over a full touchdown per game less than the previous season

On Fire
Super Hero

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) DeAndre Hopkins does not need a QB as any QB will do because every QB seems to throw Nuk the ball and he snatches nearly every pass. 

(+) Hopkins was the number 6 fantasy wide receiver in 2015 and will be a first round option this year as fantasy owners will consider building around him.

(+) After 3 seasons the 23 year old only had one game last year with less than 5 catches!  

(+) Out of Clemson, Nuk has improved each year and even Michael Irvin just stated that Hopkins will be rewriting a lot of the record books.

(+) Hopkins is target maniac.  Only Antonio Brown and Julio Jones had more targets.  DeAndre hauled in 111 of his 192 targets to the tune of an avg of 12 targets per game.

(+) DeAndre was much more than target practice.  Hopkins tore the league up with 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns.  In 8 of his 16 games he scored, defying the lack of a QB.

(+) Hopkins displayed his magic with 6 games over 100 yards and a streak of 4 weeks in a row with over 100 yards.  Add in 12 games where he caught passes over 20 yards.

(+) In week five he secured 11 passes and then the next week snagged 10 more.  Nuk proves that even though he is always good that even he can have a hot streak.

(+) The focal point in the Texans offense DeAndre is the only option as Foster is going to be gone leaving #10 the only jersey worn in the stands.

(-) Superstar Hopkins while not having a decent quarterback could possibly benefit by the Texans drafting a good RB like Ezekiel Elliott but, he is not on the team… yet.

(-) Nuk could use some help… from anyone... Oh, did I mention DeAndre had a fumble he didn't lose last year?

Safe

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Gregory Olsen was the top pass catcher on a surprisingly good offense thanks to a great year from Cam Newton who made Greg his main target.       

(+) Olsen as a high school senior was a finalists for the Gatorade Player of the Year award.              

(+) Greg was a five-star recruit by Rivals.com and was the No. 2 tight end in the nation in 2003.              

(+) Also known as "G-Reg" (look it up) Olsen was a dominate TE out of the University of Miami where he became a 1st round draft choice in 2007.    

(+) Greg measure in at a solid tight end size of 6'5" and 253 pounds which helped him become the #4 TE in fantasy football for standard scoring leagues in 2015.              

(+) #88 totaled 1,104 receiving yards along with 7 touchdowns in 2015 as the go-to guy for Cam Newton.              

(+) Olsen, in 2015 had 10 games with 4 or more receptions, reeled in 77 of 124 targets and had 3 games with over 100 yards receiving.              

(+) Mr. Olsen had a catch in all of his 2015 games, including a 2 touchdown game week 3 and snagged 9 catches week 13.              

(+) Olsen has only missed 2 games in his 9 years in the National Football League so, draft him knowing you are set at the tight end position.              

(+) Greg has a career long reception of 52 yards, had a career high of 8 touchdowns in 2009 in Chicago and 14.3 yards per receptions in 2015 showing his consistency.              

(-) Olsen was bottled up in the Super Bowl as he faced off against Aqib Talib often on passing downs.              

(-) Greg is 31 years old which is not ancient but, his speed will begin to slow as he loses a step in his 30's.              

(-) Olsen will most likely lose quite a few targets to returning Kelvin Benjamin and other rising newcomer Devin Funchess.

Chain Mover

(Rank: 1=Easiest 32=Hardest)

The Reason


(+) Delanie had his best year in 2015( 10th season) and his future should stay bright with an emerging Marcus Mariota as Delanie once again was a great value pick.

(+) A real specimen at 6 foot 248 pounds and a 4.49 forty coming out of Central Missouri Walker is a force to reckon with and a nightmare to bring down.

(+) Hubert Delanie Walker in High School won the Division III 100m (10.6) and long jump (21-5) showing his gifted prowess

(+) #82 conquered all of the titans TE records in 2015 going over 1,000 for his first time and reaching the Pro Bowl.

(+) Walker ended last year as the 5th best fantasy TE with 1,086 and 6 TDs and nicely pulling down 94 of 133 targets from a rookie QB.

(+) Delanie will be in consideration of being a top five drafted TE in 2016 (especially PPR) thanks to having 11 games with 6 or more receptions in 2015 showing consistency.

(+) Mr. Walker had 6 games of 90 or more receiving yards including a long 62 yard touchdown which is a great distance for a tight end.

(-) Walker only had 1 game with 100 yards and only scored a touchdown in four games.

(-) Although not a major concern Delanie had slight imbalance in yards per catch on turf (6.7 ypc) vs grass (9.9 ypc).

(-) Delanie has a young quarterback and even if Marcus shows promise he still is wet behind the ears which will have owners exercising some itsy-bitsy caution drafting him.
