Top Three Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL draft

While a lot of teams in the NFL feel like they already have a franchise quarterback to count on, there are going to be teams looking for that type of guy in the 2015 NFL draft. It might not be the most outstanding year for quarterbacks, but there are a few who have an opportunity to become starters rather quickly. Here is a look at who might be able to take a franchise to another level.

Jameis Winston

In his redshirt freshman year, Winston made a name for hiimself as a nationalchampion and a Heisman Trophy winner. However, a lot of people are goingto focus on some of his transgressions off of the field as reasons to doubt his character a little bit. He seems to be maturing quickly, and a lot of mock drafts have him as the number 1 overall pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have been desperately looking for a franchise type of guy, and he certainly has the arm strength and the size to be solid in the NFL.

Marcus Mariota

Like Winston, Mariota goes into the draft with the Heisman Trophy alreaady to his name. He has some people doubting him as well, but that has to do with the type of style he played at the college level. There are some scouts who feel like Oregon made him look better than he actually is. His draft position seems a little bit trickier, but someone in the 1st round is going to take a chance on him. In fact, slipping out of the top 10 seems almost impossible.

Brett Hundley

After the top 2 prospects, there is a chance that we do not see another quarterback drafted until the 3rd round. There are going to be some options for teams at that time, as Bryce Petty and Garrett Grayson could go in that round as well. Hundley just seems like the guy with the most potential right now. He was able to have quite a bit of success at UCLA, and he has the armstrength to compete at the highest level.

How Vegas Views The LeSean McCoy for Kiko Alonso Trade

When ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday night that the Eagles have agreed to trade All-Pro RB LeSean McCoy to the Bills for LB Kiko Alonso, it came as a major shock to many NFL observers: “How could the Eagles, on the brink of Super Bowl contention, let their best player go?”

But Las Vegas sports books barely blinked. Neither the Westgate LV SuperBook nor MGM Resorts, in fact, made any adjustments to their Super Bowl odds. Station Casinos shortened the Bills from 30-to-1 to 25-to-1 and kept the Eagles at 22-to-1. The only move made at The Wynn was a lengthening of the Eagles’ futures price.

“No movement on Bills – they are already low at 50-1 due to bets,” said Wynn sports book director John Avello. “We can’t go much lower until they show they are a contender. We took Philly from 15-to-1 up to 20-to-1. Who will run the ball for them?”

Right now, those running the ball for Philly are Darren Sproles, Chris Polk and former Oregon Duck Kenjon Barner.

Apparently, McCoy and Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s relationship had soured recently, and as we saw last season with All-Pro WR DeSean Jackson, you either get with Kelly’s program or get out. In this case, Kelly was able to grab another one of his Oregon guys in Alonso — he now has nine former Ducks players on his Eagles roster.

Kelly’s offensive system has proven to be effective with interchangeable parts, and by trading McCoy and earlier releasing DE Trent Cole and CB Cary Williams, Philly is projected to be $48 million under the 2015 salary cap. As great as McCoy has been, the Eagles should be able to find a suitable system back either in the draft or through free-agency.

Among the interesting free-agent RBs available is C.J. Spiller, who now knows he won’t be back with Buffalo. The prized free-agent back is DeMarco Murray, and Kelly could kill two birds with one stone by signing him – fill the void left by McCoy and make the Cowboys weaker within the NFC East.

For the Bills, new coach Rex Ryan has inherited a defense on the brink greatness, and a back like McCoy boosts his chances to compete with the Patriots in the AFC East. The Bills have reportedly also made a trade with the Vikings to acquire QB Matt Cassel.

Bills fans should be excited about 2015, and Eagles fans should trust that Kelly has a plan. After taking over a 4-12 squad, Kelly has gone 10-6 in each of his first two seasons. McCoy’s replacement may not have 2,146 yards from scrimmage like McCoy did in 2013, but the system will produce numbers regardless of who in running the ball.

The best bet is that this trade is a win for both teams.

2015 Super Bowl Point Spread : Early Movement

The point spread for Super Bowl XLIX moved 3.5 points at MGM Resorts on Sunday night, as the Patriots pulled away from the Colts to secure the AFC title.

The Las Vegas sports book operator, along with many others in town, opened the Seahawks as 2.5-point favorites during the third quarter of New England’s 45-7 victory. By the late fourth quarter, the Pats were the 1-point favorite.

“We opened (Seattle) -2.5, but I knew it was the wrong side, and I just kept dropping it down little by little even though we didn’t get much action on it,” Jay Rood, MGM Resorts VP of race and sports, told The Linemakers’ Micah Roberts. “The more I was thinking about it, the more I thought New England should be favored, and the bulk of the action we took on it — about $10,000 — has been on the Patriots -1.”

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened Seattle -2.5, but the shop was dealing the game at a pick ‘em less than a half-hour later, according to assistant manager Jeff Sherman’s Twitter feed.

William Hill U.S. moved to a pick ‘em on Sunday night as well, director of trading Nick Bogdanovich told The Linemakers on Sporting News in a text message. The shop was offering an advanced line of Seattle -3 vs. New England last week.

Super Bowl XLIX is set for Sunday, Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.

That the spread moved immediately in New England’s direction is not a surprise. Early line moves are typically prompted by money from professional bettors. But with Vegas books packed with public bettors for Championship Sunday, the cumulative smaller wagers have a greater impact. Public bettors, of course, tend to base their wagers on what they most-recently witnessed — and that was the Pats blowing out the Colts and the Seahawks coming away with a very fortunate win over the Packers.

“The books want to get to the right number as quickly as they can,” said The Linemakers’ Roberts. “This will be the biggest bet game of the year, where the public has more influence on the number than the wise guys. In most cases with the public, they go by what they saw last, and in this case, it was Seattle struggling at home and committing five turnovers and the Patriots rolling to a blowout win. I think the public will side with the Patriots early on.”

Early wagering on last year’s Super Bowl was similar, as Seattle opened as a short favorite but Denver was bet to a favorite within a few hours on Championship Sunday.

Said Tony Miller at the Golden Nugget, “We haven’t taken any big action on the game yet, just a bunch of guys putting some small parlays on it before they head out of town.”

Miller said he believes Seattle -3 is the proper number, but he adjusted to what he saw in the market.

“With -2s being out there and -1.5 at the Mirage, I opened -2.5 just to be at the highest number, but the (odds) screen is jumping right now,” Miller said. “I’m looking at a few books down to -1 right now, so I’m moving to -2 and I’ll still be high.”

Five minutes later, Miller took a bet large enough (not a limit wager) to drop even further, to -1, to put him in line with most of the other books around town. But the number would continue to drop, and pick ‘em was the consensus line by the time the AFC game ended.

The total opened between 48.5 and 49.5.

On sale: The Wynn is enticing bettors in Vegas with a special offer of -105 vigorish on side bets, exec VP for Race & Sports John Avello told The Linemakers on Sporting News in a text on Sunday night. Gamblers usually have to lay -110.

High bar: Nevada sports books handled a record $119.4 million in wagers on last year’s Super Bowl, which shattered the previous mark of $98.9 set the previous year. They also won $19.6 million, another record.

2015-6 Super Bowl Odds Posted

Futures wagering on Super Bowl 50, set for Sunday, Feb. 7 in Santa Clara, Calif., is open in Las Vegas, and three of this season’s final four teams sit atop the odds board at the Westgate SuperBook.

The Seahawks (5-to-1 odds), Patriots (6-to-1) and Packers (7-to-1) open as the top three betting choices, while the Colts – this season’s other semifinalist – is tied for sixth at 16-to-1.

The Eagles, also at 16-to-1, have the shortest odds to win Super Bowl 50 of any team that missed this season’s playoffs.

The Broncos and Cowboys – both eliminated in the divisional round last weekend – open at 8-to-1 and 12-to-1, respectively.

The 49ers are 25-to-1 to win the Super Bowl in their home, Levi’s Stadium.

While it may seem early for odds to be posted on next season’s championship, bookmakers don’t worry too much about seismic shifts in balance due to the draft or free agency.  In the NBA, a move like LeBron James’ from Miami to Cleveland has a dramatic impact on futures prices .  Such a dynamic does not occur in the NFL.

“You’ll rarely find a rookie who will make a huge impact on the futures,” SuperBook VP Jay Kornegay told The Linemakers’ Micah Roberts. “Usually in the NFL, it takes multiple trades, multiple additions in the free-agent market to adjust the futures – but it will happen.”

Who Experts are Targeting on the Week 3 Waiver Wire

Week 2 of the 2014 fantasy football season will likely be kept in mind for the barrage of injuries to hit rosters around the NFL.

A number of leading players dropped on Sunday, like Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and receiver Desean Jackson, in addition to Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green, Miami Dolphins running back Knowshown Moreno and Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.

Though Griffin wasn’t attacked on the play, it looked like he rolled his ankle while attempting a pass in the very first quarter of Sunday’s matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Griffin was writhing in discomfort on the field and ultimately carted off, with back-up Kirk Cousins stepping into toss a touchdown on the very next play.

Jackson would later on go down with what some reports have actually called a bruised shoulder, putting his future manufacturing and wellness in doubt for owners; and Green was pulled after suffering a toe injury; Bryant likewise hurt his shoulder however returned to the game and was astonishing, while Moreno abused his elbow.

For now we don’t know the long term status of each gamer’s injury, but fantasy owners will need strategies to replace them for a brief or long stretch of the season.

Several players can arise in the handful of games continuing to be in Week Two, but let’s take a look at a few of the players owners may think about for Week 3’s waiver wire claims. Remember, constantly drop and add at your very own discernment.

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins

Cozs has more than his fair share of detractors, but he is next in line on the Redskins depth chart. If RG3 is out, Cousins will likely get the start in Week 3 at Philadelphia. He looked extremely sharp for the remainder of the Jacksonville video game, going 22-for-33 for 250 yards and two goals, and the Eagles matchup figures to be a shoot out with lots of chances for Cousins.

Niles Paul, TE, Washington Redskins

When Jackson decreased, Cousins turned to Paul, who was currently supposed to have an expanded role with Jordan Reed out. Now in his 4th period from Nebraska, Paul excelled versus the Jags with 8 receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown off 11 targets. We had him as sleeper earlier this week, and he can continue to breakout over the next few weeks.

Owen Daniels, TE, Baltimore Ravens

Capturing five spheres for 28 yards and two goals, Daniels made his first huge impact for the Ravens after eights periods with Houston. However Daniels typically has one excellent video game, and follows it up with a car. He will get picked up, but Daniels ought to be your second or third choice with Kansas City’s Travis Kelce a much better lasting choice.

John Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals

With Carson Palmer hurt, and Drew Stanton stepping in, Arizona receivers could lose favor with owners. However in extremely deep leagues Brown might be a lasting rough diamond, especially when bye weeks start. He’s loaded with speed and athleticism, and showed some flashes with 3 receptions for 28 yards versus the Giants talented secondary.

Buffalo Bills DST

Four sacks, one fumble recuperation, one interception and only 10 points allowed versus division competing Miami to take the early AFC East lead. They’ve got another house game in Week 3 against San Diego, an offense that hasn’t look as strong as in 2013’s.

Others to enjoy: Matt Asiata, RB, Minnesota; Bobby Rainey, RB, Tampa Bay; Jerricho Cotchery, WR, Panthers; Jason Avant, WR, Panthers; Mohamed Sanu, WR, Bengals; Miles Austin, WR, Cleveland

Why Russell Wilson Could be the Key to your Fantasy Football Championship

Russell Wilson

1. Average draft position

According to Fantasy Football Calculator, Russell Wilson is coming off the board late in the ninth round and as the No. 15 quarterback. That’s very ridiculous value for a quarterback who finished No. 8 at the position in basic scoring Yahoo leagues for the 2013 season.

Quarterbacks being prepared ahead of Wilson in 2014: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck, Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, Nick Foles, Jay Cutler, Cam Newton, Tony Romo, Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick and Philip Rivers

Quarterbacks who completed ahead of Wilson in 2013: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers and Matthew Stafford

There is an evident perception that Wilson is simply a video game manager, but he still finished No. 8 in quarterback scoring and averaged 1.4 points less per video game than Andrew Luck, who is presently being prepared at the beginning of the 5th round in fantasy drafts. Provided his leading 5 capacity, Wilson provides exceptional value. Load up on receivers and running backs in the early and middle rounds and draft Wilson late.
2. Seahawks’ tendencies

Individuals prefer to explain how often the Seahawks run the sphere as a factor for Wilson being simply a typical fantasy football quarterback. There is some credibility to that. In 2013, the Seahawks were No. 2 in the league with 509 rushing attempts. They were also No. 31 in the NFL with 420 passing efforts. Regardless of those numbers, Wilson was a leading 10 fantasy quarterback in 2013. Now Wilson is in his third season, Marshawn Lynch is getting a bit older and the Seahawks have even more weapons. They also controlled groups in 2013, which trigger them to run the ball more.

It’s not likely the Seahawks will be challenging the Broncos for the majority of passes tried in 2014, however a boost over the 420 pass attempts is likely for Wilson. An increase in pass attempts can be all Wilson requires to go from the No. 8 fantasy quarterback to a top five alternative in 2014.
3. How well he’s played

Seattle’s offense has actually looked dominant since the Super Bowl. Wilson tossed for 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns versus the Broncos. Throughout the preseason, he finished almost 80 percent of his passes, including a dominant display in the 3rd preseason video game where he went 15-for-20 for 202 yards and two goals while scrambling for 23 yards and a goal all in simply over one half of play. If the Seahawks are willing to open the offense, Wilson can control in 2014.
4. Rushing ability

Quarterbacks who can run supply a benefit for fantasy owners. Wilson ran for more than 500 yards and one touchdown a year earlier. A boost in pass efforts would likewise cause a boost in rushing chances for Wilson, who hurried for 3 touchdowns throughout the preseason. Don’t forget about Wilson’s hurrying capability when he begins to slide in your fantasy draft.
5. Percy Harvin

Percy Harvin hardly dipped into all in 2013 till the Super Bowl, in which his effect was obvious. If Harvin is able to stay healthy in 2014, he will certainly have a favorable result on Wilson’s fantasy value. He’s able to make something from nothing in the brief passing game, and Wilson is wise enough to make the most of that.

Fantasy Football Draft Domination Strategy for Dummies

It’s that wonderfully demanding time of the year once again where football fans are viscously typing away searching for any piece of details for an edge in fantasy football. Whether it’s information on a certain player or player rankings, you can never do sufficient study. Each year is a learning experience, you learn how you like to prepare, gamers you want, gamers you do not desire, and trades. After lots of years of terrific drafts with failed seasons due to injuries and bad trades, I’m right here to offer a little guidance so at the end of the season you are the one boasting all next off-season about your victorious champion.

QB Advice – Wait. Simply wait. I know how tough it is to miss Drew Brees in the third round, however it’s not worth it. It’s prematurely to draft a quarterback, in the early round you need to stock up on the skill positions (RB & WR) since they go quickly. In a lot of mocks drafts and draft boards quarterbacks, you can draft a player like Matthew Stafford in the late 5th to early 6th round. Stafford is no Drew Brees, do not get my words confused, however he is a great fantasy quarterback. The Lions offense is a very pass heavy attack and they have the very best pass receiver in the league, Calvin Johnson. Stafford tosses lots of goals and usually has numerous goal games.

RB Advice – The exact reverse of preparing quarterbacks, early and commonly. There are just 32 starting running backs in the league and only a handful are actually valuable in fantasy football. If you have an early choice in the draft, it’s a no brainer to obtain a Jamal Charles, Lesean McCoy, or Adrian Peterson. If you have a late choice, fear not. There are some quality selects like Marshawn Lynch, Montee Ball, or Matt Forte, all late 1st round to mid 2nd round quality picks. The other huge advice is try to find the backs that are “injury vulnerable.” It seems every season CJ Spiller, Arian Foster, and Reggie Bush all fight injuries each season and their back ups are normally quality flex to 2nd string running backs.

WR Advice – Wide receivers are tough in fantasy football, there’s a small handful of receivers worth a first round pick like Demaryius Thomas or Calvin Johnson, however aside from them I wouldn’t squander a first tease them. Start trying to find receivers mid-second round to the end of the third round. There’s rather a bit of talent through those rounds with AJ Green, Brandon Marshall, or Jordy Nelson. My recommendation is to draft more receivers than you believe you need. Receivers go through cold and hot streaks and it’s good to have a backup strategy while among your leading receivers are a little cold or off his game.

TE Advice – Tight ends are influencing fantasy football more and more each season. Teams are using them because they are becoming so athletic and makes them a mismatch with the majority of protective players on the field. Mid 3rd round is actually when I ‘d search for a tight end if there isn’t really a receiver you are truly insane about. There’s about 5 tight ends that are going to be consistently great all season and clearly the huge 2 are Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham. If you can’t get them, look at the Brown’s tight end Jordon Cameron. Last season he really became a big part of the Browns offense and was acquiring touchdowns each video game.

Flex Advice – Consistency is truly all you are trying to find from this position. Some leagues do not have fun with a flex, however if you do attempt to find a running back or a receiver. The benefit to drafting them is you can still play them at one of the lots of WR slots or RB slots together with the flex. Some excellent flex players could be Jordy Nelson, Toby Gerhart, or T.Y. Hilton.

K/Defense Advice – Just don’t lose your choices till it’s the last couple of rounds. In the later rounds you can find some gems hidden and it’s worth the threat in some cases to discover a breakout player in round 11. Wait up until the last 3 rounds to compose either position and simply prepare the greatest available.
