Ask the Expert Question: Super Bowl Prediction

Super Bowl Prediction

New England rolls to a 28-17 win. Tom Brady gets Super Bowl MVP number 6. Not much of a contest. Nick Foles wilts under the New England pressure and plays like he has in several previous games. The Eagles struggle on offense and do not score a TD into late in the 3rd quarter. Gronk is a decoy. Danny Amendola gets a Pats TD along with Dwayne Allen and the Defense off a Pick Six. Bill Belichick is crowned super genius!

Ask the Expert Question: Which new coaching hire (or expected hire) interests you most? Why?

Josh McDaniels at Indy or soon to be. Sure he has been the OC for NE for many years (spent two forgettable Tim Tebow seasons as HC with Denver) but his offenses have been super. I am excited about a Colt offense QB’d by Andrew Luck who leads a team of talented young players (and Frank Gore) in 2018. OK maybe that is just me rationalizing Luck as my keeper player from this years draft. No I am buying McDaniels. He has matured and learned and will deliver a Indy team from the ashes.

Ask the Expert Question: Pick a playoff player who has changed your opinion of him the most.


In this year's playoffs thus far, pick one player who has changed your opinion of him the most (for good or ill), and say why.




Corey Davis the Titans rookie WR impressed me with his one handed TD catch last weekend. That was his first NFL TD and I can see many more in years to come. Love the 5th overall pick and plan on drafting him religiously in 2018.
He finished with 5-63-2 in that playoff game on 8 targets.

Ask the Expert Question of the Week: Who gets your vote as the fantasy Comeback Player (or players) of the Year?

Who gets your vote as the fantasy Comeback Player (or players) of the Year?


It is a tie for comeback player of the year. Todd Gurley at RB or Keenen Allen at WR. Gurley almost doubled his yards from scrimmage and tripled his TDs (19 up from 6 in 2016'). A lot of that is due to the revamped OL and better play from 2nd year QB Geoff, but a comeback is a comeback. On the other hand Keenen Allen's comeback is due primarily to his staying healthy for a change. The talent with Allen has never been in doubt. He just has not been on the field long enough to show case it. Honorable mention goes to DeAndre Hopkins if we are picking a WR who played a full season last year and stunk it up and then came back this year. Again like Gurley much of 2016 can be blamed on QB play.

Ask the Expert Question of the Week: Pick one nobody who will be a fantasy somebody in Week 17, and say why.

Pick one nobody who will be a fantasy somebody in Week 17, and say why.

Bruce Arians is a lame duck Head Coach. The Cards are out of the playoffs and every RB including Kerwyn Williams (broken ribs) is banged up. Elijhaa Penny is my what-the-heck lets throw out a nobody name and see if he gets a chance to show his stuff. I say let the undrafted rookie run wild. And have you seen SEA defense lately? Roger Lewis WR NYG is not a nobody but he is often overlooked. He gets my runner up choice after being targeted 11 times Sunday.
