Fantasy Football 2022: Everything You Need To Know Before You Draft

We are well into the swing of the 2022 NFL season, as we enter week 6. Although the games began a month ago, that doesn’t mean you can’t join DFS NFL a little late. 

 

Daily Fantasy Sports is just that – daily. You may end up being a couple of points behind the other players, but you can still make strides if you know how to play the game right. Let us show you how!

 

The Three Basic Rules To Follow

These basic rules we want to give you are more like suggestions or guidance. You don’t need to follow them to play well, but if you do your chances of success will be much higher.

 

The first rule is to pick players who are on the pitch often. High-floor and high-volume players will give you a strong start to your game. This is because they will be earning points simply by joining in. These players will become the backbone of your team, constantly trickling points even if they don’t play well.

 

The second rule is to avoid players that you’re unsure of. If you’ve heard a rumor that a specific player has a weak ankle, or their practice runs have become a little sloppy, then avoid them. Trust your instincts and don’t bag a player that might let you down. We will go into more detail about injured players later but as a general rule of thumb, if you’re not sure don’t pick them.

 

The third rule you should consider is paying attention to the news surrounding your players. Health information, stat changes, and announcements from the teams. All of this data can tell you when to put your players into the reserve, when to place them back onto the field, and how to manage your team as the tide changes.

 

Keep these three things in mind as the game continues!

 

The Tight Ends You Should Consider

The first two tight ends you should consider are Travis Kelce (Kansas City Chiefs) and Mark Andrews (Baltimore Ravens). Kelce is a top player at the moment, scoring 4 touchdowns in his latest game to bring Kansas to a win, while Andrews held his own against the Cincinnati Bengals scraping their way to victory.

 

The Quarterbacks You Should Consider

When it comes to quarterbacks you may think that Tom Brady is our top pick, but depending on the coins in your pot you may not be able to afford him. Even worse, the hero seems to be going through a downward spiral.

 

Instead, we suggest aiming for Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills) and Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs). Allen earned the award for Fantasy Player of the Year in 2020, and we hold onto the same hope for him in the current season.

 

Use The Middle Ground To Round Off Your Team

At this point you want to look at your points and how many positions you need to fill. There is no point in purchasing multiple high-end quarterbacks and backing them up with a low-end receiver. Your defenses and kickers need as much attention as the rest of your team. 

 

Ideally, you want a “sleeper”. These are players which are often overlooked, playing a lot better than they were predicted. These players are gems and should be snapped up as soon as possible.

 

The opposite of a sleeper is a busted player. These are players that are not performing to their caliber. Drop these players when you see a pattern of slipping.

 

Consider Replacement Players For Injury Risks

Rules two and three both touch on the subject of injuries. If you’re unsure of a player’s recovery you should avoid selecting them, and if you read news about an injury put the player on the bench.

 

However, you can never be sure of when an injury will strike. If you want a player on your team, but know they are prone to injuries, place them on the field early, and prepare a player to replace them when the inevitable happens. 

 

Remember The Bye Week

In the NFL, we have a term called “bye week”. Once a season, every team will have a week where they will not play. This year they are spread out between week 6 and week 14.

 

Consider when your players will be on their bye week, and replace them with active players to avoid losing points as you wait for their return. When week 14 is over, you can go back to putting your best players forward.

 

2022 Is The Year Of The Rookie

Lastly, we suggest keeping an eye on the rookies this year. Sleepers are normally rookies that haven’t had their time in the sun yet, and this season Brian Robinson is basking in the light. Robinson plays for the Washington Commanders and has started to take the role of running back away from top player Antonio Gibson.

 

Just 6 weeks ago, Robinson was shot in the leg, and now he is storming the field.

 

Summary

The NFL stats change quickly, so find your sleepers, your strong players, and your replacements and get ready to move them from bench to field in flow with the game.

 

7 Players to Snag in the 2022-3 Fantasy Football Draft

How Bad Are the Seattle QBs?

Three Candidates for a Second-Year Breakout NFL Season in 2022

 

The 2022 NFL season is rapidly approaching, with the opening fixture schedule for September 8, when the Buffalo Bills travel to the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams, in the NFL Kickoff Game. Teams are heading to their respective training camps, and many players have high hopes for the upcoming season. The following three players have a reason to be extra excited for the 2022 campaign because they are about to embark on their second year as NFL professionals and are highly likely to enjoy a breakout year.

TrevorLawrence – QB – Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Last season was another disappointing campaign for Jacksonville Jaguars, who slumped to a 3-14 record, ultimately resulting in Urban Meyer losing his job at the TIAA Bank Field. It was hardly the ideal situation for Trevor Lawrence to flourish. The 2021 first overall pick started all 17 regular season games, had a 59.6% pass completion rate from 602 attempts, racked up 3,641 yards, and threw 12 touchdowns. It is fair to say Lawrence was one of the few positives for the Jaguars.

While the Jaguars are not on the radar of anyone about to make NFL bets online for the coming season, they should be massively improved with Doug Pederson coming in as head coach. Pederson guided the Philadelphia Eagles to Super Bowl LII glory and is considered a quarterback guru by many, which should help Lawrence thrive.

The Jaguars have the likes of Evan Engram, Marvin Jones, and Christian Kirk on the perimeter, in addition to strengthening the offensive line that failed to protect Lawrence during the last campaign. Expect the Jaguars to be much improved throughout the 2022 season and Lawrence to be one of the main reasons for that vast improvement.

Zach Wilson – QB – New York Jets

The New York Jets selected Zach Wilson as the second overall pick in 2021, and it is easy to see why. The former BYU Cougar played 30 college games and enjoyed a 67.6% pass completion for 7,652 yards and 56 touchdowns, which earned him an overall rating of 162.9. Reproducing those figures for the Jets was always going to be a tall order.

The Jets went 4-13 during the regular season, partly because of their inability to stop the opposition defense from beating up Wilson. He was sacked 44 times and lost 370 yards due to those sackings, the most yards lost via sacks in the entire league. In addition, that lack of protection cost the Jets and Wilson dearly because he suffered a knee injury in Week 7 against the Patriots, which kept him out for four games.

Like the Jaguars mentioned above, the Jets have strengthened their offensive line and playmakers on the perimeter, making the Jets system very quarterback friendly. There are no excuses for Wilson not to have a breakout year and put up solid numbers in 2022, even if the Jets continue struggling.

Rondale Moore – WR – Arizona Cardinals

Rondale Moore joined the Arizona Cardinals as the 49th overall pick in Round 2, entering the 2021 season fourth on the Cardinals’ wide receiver depth chart. However, he still turned out 14 times in a Cardinals uniform, averaging 8.1 yards from 54 receptions and scoring a 77-yard touchdown.

Moore has a great chance of becoming a vital starting player for the Cardinals. Christian Kirk left Arizona for the Jacksonville Jaguars, freeing up one of the perimeter places. Plus, DeAndre Hopkins misses the first six games of the 2022 season through suspension, giving Moore the perfect opportunity to show what he can do on the football field.

The Cardinals acquired Marquise Brown from the Baltimore Ravens, but Moore should still enjoy plenty of game time. Combined more minutes on the field with an ever-improving Kyle Murray pulling strings at quarterback, you have the recipe for a potential breakout year for the former Purdue Boilermaker.

Super Bowl LVI Favorites: Joe Mixon

 Now that Super Bowl LVI is over and done with, it’s time to check out the winners and losers of the biggest football game in the world. While some predicted the outcome of this year’s Bowl, it was a close and dramatic showdown where upstart Joe Burrow led the Cincinnati Bengals to their first game in 30 years.
Today we’re taking a closer look at Joe Mixon, a running back for the Bengals who caused a stir after throwing a touchdown during the game. He was also benched during certain crucial moments that had fans questioning their sanity.
Before we explore Mixon’s year, remember that the draft is almost here. If you want to bet on the athletes involved, check out NFL draft odds.

Joe Mixon’s 2021

2021 was Joe Mixon’s fifth year in the NFL, which he has spent with the Bengals for the entire time. Mixon played most games in the season this year, so here are some of the highlights:
He got off to a strong start in Week 1, where he registered 127 rushing yards and 1 touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings.
Midway through the season, he made 127 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The next game, he registered a season personal best with 165 rushing yards and another 2 touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His performance for the rest of the season meandered, though it was clear that Mixon was effective at scoring touchdowns as an RB. Keep that in the back of your head.
Then, at the start of January 2022, Mixon missed the end of the season due to COVID-19. Despite this small interruption, Mixon’s 2021 season was his best. He rushed a career-high of 1,205 yards with 13 touchdowns, alongside 42 receptions for 314 receiving yards and 3 receiving touchdowns.
As we said, Mixon is effective at the touchdown game, becoming the best rushing TD-scorer in the Bengals since the late ‘80s.
Then came the postseason. Once again, Mixon and the Bengals took the Raiders down before beating the Tennessee Titans and then the Kansas City Chiefs to become AFC champs. Mixon scored another TD against the Titans and rushed 88 yards against the Chiefs.
With Burrow at the helm, the team was hungry for a Super Bowl win, but stealing it from the Los Angeles Rams was a tall order.

                                     Mixon At The Super Bowl
Then we get to Mixon at the Super Bowl, where Mixon made 72 rushing yards on 15 carries and 5 receptions. The most memorable play by Mixon came halfway through the game.
Down 14-3, QB Joe Burrow passed the ball to Mixon. It looked like a pitch run, which was exactly what the Rams thought too. Mixon then faked the Rams’ defense and threw to the end zone. There, wide receiver Tee Higgins was waiting with virtually nobody covering him, scoring a touchdown.
At that moment, Mixon became a permanent fixture in Super Bowl history. He was the second RB to throw a TD in the Super Bowl. What’s more, he was the fifth non-quarterback to throw a TD in a Super Bowl game, too.
Towards the end of the game, which the Bengals lost at 23-20, they swapped Mixon out with veteran RB Samaje Perine. This proved a controversial decision for some, though we just don’t know if Mixon would have made a difference. 

                                            Conclusion
So, that’s why there has been chatter about Joe Mixon lately. By most metrics, he proved himself to be a satisfactory RB who can pull a surprise TD or two from his pockets, proving himself invaluable during the Bowl.
There’s no bad blood between him and Perine or the rest of the Bengals. Instead, the franchise needs to lick its wounds and try again next year, even hungrier than they were this year. If they can make it next year, they could easily carry the next Bowl.

Lamar Jackson Pushes Baltimore Towards Concerted Super Bowl Push

 Such is the current run of form shown by Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson that even on his relative ‘off-days,’ he still manages to set new high standards.

Though he only managed to throw for 167 yards (a season-low), Jackson led the Ravens to a 34-6 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, which represented his 35th NFL win, and that’s the most victories a player has accomplished by the age of 25.

Jackson was his usual down-to-earth self when informed of this feat, remarking;

“That’s pretty cool, I guess,” Jackson said. “I don’t know what to say after that. It’s cool. Gotta keep going.”

The win over their divisional rivals leaves the Ravens at 5-1 and a decent-looking bet to go long into the postseason. At sidelines.io, you can currently find odds of (+1000) on the Ravens to win the Super Bowl, and those odds have come in a great deal due to the great form shown by John Harbaugh’s side.

The season didn’t start so brightly, the Ravens losing in overtime to the Las Vegas Raiders before racking up wins over the Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, and the Los Angeles Chargers.

It’s now nine years since the Ravens came up short, just in their Super Bowl defeat to the San Francisco 49ers, and since then, they’ve had their ups and downs. For three years on the spin, they’ve come up short in the postseason and will want to get back to winning ways when it counts most.

There is a concern with some that Ravens have developed into something of a one-man team, though perhaps that’s a cross that’s worth bearing. There has been a groundswell of opinion among pundits, who have repeatedly stated that this might be the year that the NFL works out how to nullify Jackson, this season, it hasn’t proven the case.

Jackson is now into his fourth season at the M&T Bank Stadium, and his regular-season record of 35-8 is mighty impressive. In the postseason, that record drops to 1-3, and that’s an issue that must be reversed if the 2019 NFL MVP is to capture the trophy he really wants.

That win over the Chargers, when Jackson had a bad day, is perhaps a sign that the Ravens know how to win ‘ugly’. Early season favorites the Kansas City Chiefs have started poorly and now the talk is of the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers being the teams most likely to push for Super Bowl glory, but no one should rule out this Ravens side.

Jackson is very much the key man as Harbaugh pushes for the Super Bowl crown and though he has his doubters, not many can deny his abilities.

Lest we forget that Jackon recently became the fastest player in NFL history to rack up 5000 passing yards AND 2500 rushing yards, doing so in the space of three seasons. The numbers don’t lie, Lamar Jackson IS that good, and greatness is surely on the cards.

Zach Wilson: Boom or Bust?

Will the new New York Jets new QB Zach Wilson have an amazingly good or bad 2021 season?   We can’t wait to find out!!

New England’s Preseason Debut May Have Given Patriots A New Star: Mac Jones

 Before the dawn of the New England Patriots’ preseason debut opposite the team of Washington, Mac Jones looked for some valuable advice from Cam Newton. Unfortunately, he seemed to have no impact on the fact that Newton previously laughably uttered that his quietness, sometimes, becomes so prevailing that it appears he is going to undo “the Vinci Code of seriousness.”

Expressing their meeting after the 22-13 win of the Patriot, Newton mentioned that, during their meeting, Jones was very detailed about his expectations from himself and the game. He also used words to admire the eagerness and enthusiasm the young quarterback contains. Mac Jones possesses an ongoing endeavor to achieve perfection in Cam Newton, which always facilitates him to keep his preparations with precision.

Jones did everything in his capabilities to emphasize the idea of him being the starting quarterback of the team from the beginning of 2021. Indeed, Jones couldn’t precisely wrap the downfield against Washington. Still, like the proficiency of the smallest mixer grinder, his performance rose above Cam Newton, which is enough for labeling the night on his name. Alongside, the first-rounder from Alabama is maintaining his performance level in the third quarter.

New England’s offense with its verticalness endowed him enough chances to apply his strengths on the field; together, he still managed to capture some opportunities to bring out deep balls. As a result, two field goals came into the pocket of the Patriots, although it can’t be denied opportunities of touchdowns had been created, as well. That night, the player made 13-of-19 passing with a rate of 78.2, managing to cover 87 yards with 4.6 yards on every attempt. The match must have made the Patriots comprehend that this man can make contributions to the team. In addition, the team will also learn to utilize his skills more efficiently to achieve tremendous success, like a multipurpose kettle uses include the boiling water more effectively to aid the users in the manifold.

Patriot Fans also embraced Jones with heartfelt applause. Some even started to chant his name, thinking they would see him again on the field later in the fourth quarter. The strides this quarterback managed to make inside and outside of the field got noticed by his teammates, too.
After Jone’s preseason’s debut, James White stated how difficult it is to contribute as a quarterback in this league. Still, he is working hard on his learning derived from everybody and is determined to conquer them through his performances. Adding up a few points, Josh Uche mentioned that he appeared to have hints of posies during his on-ground appearance.

The Patriots are preparing for the upcoming preseason game, their second against the Eagles, and Thursday in Philadelphia. Newton looks forward to scratching more success stories with their newly arrived player from Alabama. Enlightening his vision on the future growth of Mac Jones, Newton voiced that the learning process is different for every individual, and he is here only to grow with the team, while every one of them will be at his side.

Aaron Rodgers Tarot Reading 7/19/2021

 I just drew this card (at random, see facade.com) for Aaron Rodgers:
The card represents the critical factor for the issue at hand. Five of Cups (Disappointment): Suffering a loss and wishing for what might have been. Being crippled by sadness, grief, and vain regret. Indecision brought on by the feeling that you made the wrong choice. Ignoring what you still have. May suggest a broken relationship or tragedy. May also suggest a gift, inheritance, opportunity, partnership, or marriage, but one that falls below expectations.

Could this one card reading be any more accurate?
