Video Replay: Peyton Manning Hates On Patriots Superbowl Comeback

FF-Winners.Com Reveals 2017 Superbowl Champion!

The countdown to the 2016-7  NFL Season is just a few days away as the opening kickoff is set for September 8th. This season should provide us all with a ton of big time hits, spectacular plays and fireworks to keep us all on the edge of our seat till the final whistle at Super Bowl LI.

Now before we can crown a Super Bowl Champion, the 32 NFL teams must fight a grueling 16 game schedule before earning a chance to compete in the NFL Playoffs. That being said we take a look at both conferences to determine which team has what it takes to take home the Championship and a trip to the Super Bowl.

Starting in the NFC: this Conference may be the weaker of the two as we can see two teams walking away with their respective divisions while the other two divisions being a battle between just two teams. The only question is whether or not we could see a sleeper team like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Detroit Lions sneak into contention.

Meanwhile in the AFC: this should be a battle to the final whistle in every division as we could see as many as 10 teams take home playoff spots. This includes a new top team in the AFC East when it all closes out snapping the New England Patriots run of division crowns.

Here is how our experts and artificial intelligence computer see the AFC and NFC conferences shaping out in 2016:

NFC Champion – Green Bay Packers: As you look around the NFC the question marks arise for nearly every team in the division. The NFC East has no real favorite as it will come down to the quarterback position and how they play. The NFC South has the potential to be a four team race with the New Orleans Saints as our top team in the division. Then there is the NFC West as we see the Seattle Seahawks taking the division but don’t expect their defense to be as good as they once were.

Then there is the NFC North where just a week ago we could see the Packers fighting for the division with the Minnesota Vikings. Than a key injury to Teddy Bridgewater now leaves the Packers with a chance to walk a way with an easy path to the NFC North crown.

In the end the Packers offense will be too much for opposing defenses with the return of Jordy Nelson, the addition of Jared Cook and the newly shaped Eddie Lacy running the football. Add that with having one of the top three quarterbacks in the NFL and you have your NFC Conference Champions.

AFC Champion – New England Patriots: Yes we expect the Patriots to land in the second spot in the AFC East but still expect them to be the team to beat when it comes playoff time. Now that being said we wouldn’t be surprised if they won the division but we do like the Miami Dolphins at this point simply based on the fact the Patriots will be without Tom Brady for the first four games. A four game stretch against teams that are all built around defense including the Arizona Cardinals and the Houston Texans.
The good news for Patriots fans is all you need is a trip to the playoffs as wild card team and you can find a way to make it to the Super Bowl. Since 2000, the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers have each won the title as wild cards!

Super Bowl Champion – New England Patriots: In the end the Patriots will find a way to win it again as Bill Belichick continues to find ways to win in the NFL. Add that with the fact Brady will have a big time chip on his shoulder once returning from his suspension and that will be all the team needs to win.

Now looking a little deeper: this Patriots team has a ton of talent on both sides of the ball including a very deep running back crew. While their receiving corps lacks the big name star they still have guys that can make a big play while having possibly the best tight end duo in the NFL with Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.
On the defensive side of the ball the team added a playmaker to their secondary in Cyrus Gray through the draft as well as Chris Long through free agency. The team also added former first round pick Barkevious Mingo to add another threat to the teams pass rush.

The end result should be another Super Bowl title and possibly the last of the Belichick/Brady era!

FF-Winners.Com Reveals 3 Amazing Fantasy Bargain Sleepers for 2016-7

DeSean Jackson, WR, Washington Redskins — Jackson is going absurdly low in many fantasy football drafts — being taken outside the top 30 wide receivers in most leagues — mostly on account of misconceptions of his durability, production, and attitude (almost all of which are totally false). Yes, Jackson missed six games last season with a troublesome hamstring injury, but he was totally healthy from November onwards last year, playing in nine of the Redskins last 10 games of the season, including the postseason (he was held out of a meaningless game in Week 17 against Dallas). Prior to 2015, he played in 31 of 32 games over his last two seasons. In the eight regular season games that Jackson did play in last season, he recorded 30 catches for 528 yards and four touchdowns; project that over the course of a 16 game season, and that’s over 1,000 yards receiving and eight touchdowns. In 2014, Jackson had 1,169 yards and six receiving touchdowns with the Redskins revolving door at quarterback; so, the questions about his level of productivity are totally baseless. Finally, Jackson might’ve griped his way out of Philadelphia, but he’s been a great teammate in Washington. He’s looked the best he has in training camps, so far, as a member of the Redskins, and he spent the entire offseason working hard at the team facility. Jackson could be in line for a pretty big season in 2016, perhaps in line with the numbers we used to see him put up in Philadelphia during his prime.

Vincent Jackson, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Similarly, another wide receiver named “Jackson” is falling to absurdly low depths in most fantasy drafts — often being taken outside of the top 45 wide receivers — because of injuries curtailing his production in 2015. Vincent Jackson put up only 33 receptions, 543 yards, and three touchdowns in 10 games last year. But, he’s come into training camp determined for a bounce-back season. Last year was the first time since 2010 when Jackson missed a single game due to injury; prior to 2015, Jackson hadn’t missed a game in four years. As a member of the Buccaneers, he was ranked among the top 15 wide receivers in the NFL each year (including 2014, in Mike Evans’ rookie season). In his first five healthy games of last season, he still had 21 catches for 306 yards and two touchdowns (extrapolated over a full season, that would be 67 receptions for 979 yards and six touchdowns). With another year of experience for Jameis Winston, and teams increasingly keying on Evans, Jackson could be in for a nice rebound season, and should be a solid WR3 for most teams.

Theo Riddck, RB, Detroit Lions — Riddick should be on the radar for everyone playing in a PPR or half-PPR this season. Entering 2015 as mostly an afterthought, Riddick finished 19th among running backs in standard PPR scoring leagues, putting him firmly in the RB2 mix. He actually led the league in receptions among running backs (80 catches), was the second most targeted running back (99 targets), had the second most receiving yards among running backs (697 yards), and tied for seventh in receiving touchdowns. Riddick is often around the 40th running back taken in PPR/half-PPR leagues, making him a total bargain for players who are savvy enough to grab him in the middle-to-late rounds of the draft.

FF-Winners.Com Reveals Sleeper Team of the Year 2016

One of the most under-the-radar storylines in the NFL is the way that Chicago Bears General Manager Ryan Pace has gone about renovating this roster over the last two years. They’re one of the rare teams who has set out to build a team the “right” way — building the foundation of the team through the draft, and then supplementing those building blocks with smart free agent acquisitions — and has actually stuck to the plan (at least so far).

Pace has absolutely aced his last two drafts. The Bears had one of my favorite overall crops in 2015 — they could have as many as five starters from that group: wide receiver Kevin White, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman, center Hroniss Grasu, running back Jeremy Langford, and safety Adrian Amos — and they followed that up by putting together one hell of a class this year. I’m admittedly getting a little “Vernon Gholston déjà vu” when it comes to their first round pick Leonard Floyd — people falling in love with the physical tools more than his actual football skills — but the raw tools are certainly there. The rest of the class, though, is absolutely money.

Offensive lineman Cody Whitehair (out of Kansas State) and defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard (out of the University of Florida), taken in the late second and early third rounds, will contribute right away. Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (4th round pick out of West Virginia University) is an undersized but athletic and rangy; at the least, he’ll provide great depth and standout special teams play. Running back Jordan Howard (5th round pick out of Indiana) is a “thunder” running back with serious pop, and could provide a really nice tag team partner to Jeremy Langford. Defensive back Deandre Houston-Carson (6th round out of William & Mary) is a small school gem that could’ve gone a couple of rounds higher. And finally, wide receiver Daniel Braverman (7th round pick out of Western Michigan) is a feisty Julian Edelman-type receiver who was crazy productive in college.

In the 2016 free agency period, the Bears might’ve made three of the shrewdest and most strategic free agent signings out of anyone. They shored shore up the middle of their defense by (very quietly) signing two of the better inside linebackers in football: Danny Trevathan (formerly of Denver) and Jerrell Freeman (formerly of Indianapolis) That just adds to a group of linebackers that already had Pernell McPhee (a fantastic free agent pickup from Baltimore last season), Lamarr Houston, and the aforementioned Floyd. Then, they signed right tackle Bobby Massie (formerly of Arizona), allowing Kyle Long to move back inside to guard, where he’s a Pro Bowl-caliber player; that one signing effectively shored them up in two positions. So, the Bears’ offensive line and the middle linebackers — two of their weaker position groups last season — could very well end up being two of their strengths.

We think they still have a few big questions that need to be answered, like whether new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains — who was promoted from quarterbacks coach — can carry on the offense that Adam Gase so masterfully ran for Chicago last season; who is going to emerge from their logjam at running back (between Jeremy Langford, Ka’Deem Carey, and rookie Jordan Howard have their strengths, but none of those guys are anything close to what Matt Forte was last season); and if their secondary can hold up (Kyle Fuller had an up-and-down year last year, and they’ve basically got nothing at cornerback behind him, nor at safety next to Amos).

Still, if things break correctly for them, this team has the potential to be dangerous. And if they continue to build this team the way they have been over the last couple of years, We think they’re a really good running back and one starting cornerback away from being a legitimate contender in the NFC.

GURU REVEALS: 3 NFL Superbowl Darkhorse Candidates for 2016-7

The 2016 NFL season kicks off in September but all eyes are on a few of the top teams around the NFL. Those teams feature the New England Patriots who are the early Super Bowl favorite on most of the sports betting sites including Covers and OddShark. Along with the Patriots the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers, the Carolina Panthers and the Pittsburgh Steelers sit as the top five favorites to win Super Bowl LI.

While all five of these teams look great on paper during the offseason they will enter the season with the same identical record as the other 27 NFL teams. This opens up the door for a few of the dark horse teams around the NFL to have a chance at taking home the Lombardi Trophy. Last season we saw a Panthers team rebound from a under .500 record to make a trip to Super Bowl 50.

Along with that trip, the Panthers rewarded their fans and sports bettors who elected to pick them before the season with an NFC Championship title. That win in the NFC Championship game rewarded those sports bettors with a solid return. Prior to the season the Panthers had odds of +2500 to win the NFC Championship and +5000 to win the Super Bowl. In the end the NFC Championship Crown rewarded those lucky fans $2,500 on a $100 bet entering the season.

Now the big question entering the 2016 NFL season is which teams might be the best dark horses to take a chance on. Here are three NFL teams that could surprise many during the 2016 NFL season.

Baltimore Ravens (+3,200): Last season at this time the Ravens were an early favorite to take home the Lombardi Trophy. This time around many experts have called for the Ravens to finish behind both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North. The team’s success this season will revolve around how well Joe Flacco has recovered from a knee injury late in the season that forced him to have surgery during the off-season. If the Ravens have a healthy Flacco to go along with both Steve Smith and Breshard Perriman at receiver this team could make a similar run as we saw just a few seasons ago.

Houston Texans (+5,200): Despite the fact the Texans took home the AFC South crown last season the experts don’t have much faith in them to build on this season. This team will continue to be built around one of the best defensive players in the NFL J.J. Watt but the team also added a new weapon to the offense. That weapon is quarterback Brock Osweiler who was a key part in the Denver Broncos regular season success last season. The same can’t be said about the Texans quarterback situation last season as Brian Hoyer struggled against the Kansas City Chiefs during Wild Card weekend finishing the game connecting on less than 50% of his passes while throwing a costly four interceptions in the teams 30-0 loss. The addition of Osweiler could be the one key piece the Texans needed last season to make a deep run.

Jacksonville Jaguars (+6,000): Now before anyone laughs this pick off this team has a very solid young nucleus they have been building around over the past few seasons. That includes on the offensive side of the ball that features Blake Bortles under center and possible the best trio of wide receivers in the NFL. On the opposite side of the ball the team addressed some needs by adding Malik Jackson and Prince Amukamara through free agency. The team will also have 2015 first round pick Dante Fowler back after he missed all of last season due to a leg injury and will also be able to add talent with the fifth overall pick during the 2016 NFL draft.

Guru Reveals: 3 Fantasy Football Steals for 2015-6!

Locating a dream stud in the very early rounds of a draft is an obstacle for no one, however having the ability to divide the wheat from the chaff in the later rounds is a much-needed skill to set up a dream juggernaut.

These are three draft day bargains that are anticipated to go in rounds 10 or later on, as well as if they work out they might have a significant influence on any type of fantasy roster.

Danny Woodhead

Danny Woodhead’s 2014 campaign was stopped when he broke his ankle joint in Week 3, inevitably sidelining him for the rest of the period.

While his 2014 period was nothing except featureless, it’s difficult to write-off what he performed in 2013 when he left New England to join San Diego’s backfield.

During Woodhead’s very first period with the Chargers he finished with 1,034 complete backyards from skirmish, 8 overall touchdowns, and he apprehended 76 of his 86 targets. Only Matt Forte and Jamaal Charles finished the 2013 period with even more targets compared to Woodhead.

Woodhead has actually recovered from his injury as well as prepares to go back to his duty as the Chargers’ change-of-pace back. The enhancement of first-round pick Melvin Gordon isn’t a danger to Woodhead’s fantasy worth, viewing as Gordon will certainly be utilized as an early down back, while Woodhead will certainly be used for passing downs.

Woodhead may not be an every-down back, but he still has the possible to be an useful commodity to any sort of dream roster, especially in PPR layouts. For as economical as he will certainly begin draft day, the incentive much surpasses the threat for this prospective dream sleeper.

Jordan Cameron

Jordan Cameron was hindered with injuries in 2014, leaving many dream lovers disappointed and frustrated, but he now has a chance to recover his standing as one of the leading strict ends in the organization this forthcoming year.

During the offseason, Cameron left Cleveland’s inefficient run-first infraction for Miami, a team with the 12th-most pass efforts in the organization. Miami struggled in red-zone efficiency last period, finishing 21st in the NFL in red-zone touchdowns, which is a big reason why they went out and signed Jordan Cameron. The enhancement of Cameron provides quarterback Ryan Tannehill a large, athletic red-zone target, meanings a bunch of appearances inside the 20 for the 6′ 5″ strict end.

Cameron is two years eliminated from an outstanding 2013 season, where he had 80 catches for over 900 backyards, and took 7 touchdowns. More impressively, he did this with the likes of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden, as well as Brian Hoyer at quarterback. With a greater than qualified quarterback in Ryan Tannehill at the helm, Cameron has the chance to go back to his standing as a top-10 fantasy strict end.

Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer has had problem with injuries throughout his career, most recently tearing his left ACL for the 2nd time in 2014. It were reported that Palmer taken into consideration retirement after in 2014’s knee injury.

Palmer’s injury past history and interception troubles are issues that have him forecasted to go quite late in fantasy drafts, yet gambling on him in the final round could possibly pay massive returns.

Palmer has actually completely recovered from ACL surgical treatment and has actually looked wonderful in minicamp. Behind an upgraded offensive line as well as with another year of exposure to Bruce Arians’ infraction, Palmer is primaried to be a practical fantasy quarterback in 2015.

If you leave out the game he left early with his ACL injury, his numbers are among the dream elite. In the five games he played from start to complete, he averaged 18.8 dream issues each game in typical scoring.

There is obviously no guarantee that Palmer will certainly continue to be healthy for an entire 16 video game stretch, however if he does, it’s hard to argue that he will not be a top-10 fantasy quarterback. Make certain Palmer winds up on your roster if your method is to take a few late-round fliers at the quarterback placement.

With an even more compared to qualified quarterback in Ryan Tannehill at the helm, Cameron has the opportunity to return to his condition as a top-10 dream limited end.

Albeit short, Carson Palmer’s 2014 project was quite outstanding while he was on the industry. If you omit the video game he left early with his ACL injury, his numbers are amongst the dream elite. In the 5 video games he played from beginning to finish, he averaged 18.8 fantasy factors per game in common racking up. If you theorize those numbers over an entire 16 game period he would have finished with 300 factors, ranking 5th ideal in the organization.
