This past bowl season we watched the Oklahoma Sooners lose to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship Semi-final game. This game was unique, because Oklahoma had Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray leading the nation's highest-scoring offense against Alabama, who had one of the most powerful and balanced offenses ever at Alabama under coach Nick Saban with Tua Tagovailoa as quarterback with the one of the nation's best defenses backing him up.
Whether you’re new to fantasy football or an old vet, the importance of a star quarterback on your fantasy team should be clear. Football teams in real life are dependent on the QB, since nothing on the offensive line gets done without them.
Every football fan must have the experience of going to a game in person. You have not had the entire game day experience until you have enjoyed a pregame tailgate. Tailgating is a great way to get the excitement going before the football game starts. It is especially great for a season opener, playoff game or other big season matchup. Tailgates are very popular and throwing a good one requires a little extra thought. Looking to upgrade your tailgate party? Here are some tips to take your experience to the next level.
There a lot of big trades and game-changing acquisitions that can alter a season, and some that just fly by with two-second recognition, like pigeons. OBJ is both of these. He is a big presence on Instagram, when he's having a tantrum on the sidelines, or making some insane catch. Don't get me wrong, I like Odell as much as the next person. His presence is unavoidable, and his effect on the game is unmatched, but he, and AB (Antonio Brown for you casual watchers) have become the cornerstone for the Diva Wide Receiver in the League, and it's shown to not win Championships.
The University of Oregon football team changed the landscape of college football over the last 10 years. They set trends with many uniform combinations, fast-paced, no huddle football. The program was defined by Coach Chip Kelly, Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, and consistent winning. Being that football is a copycat sport, a lot of high school coaches tried to emulate this style, under the assumption that what works for a Pac-12 Powerhouse will help them win on Friday night.
Repeat offender (at least to this writer’s principles) Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs from the NFL has shown that it depends on the character of the person if second chances are worthy or will work. Recently, an audio was leaked of Hill being recorded by his fiancée, Crystal Espinal. That 11-minute audio was published by KCTV5 and recorded while Hill and Espinal were walking in Dubai International Airport. Even though the contents of the audio were shocking, it was also not very surprising given Hill’s past demonstration of his shallow character.
Not everyone can be a pro football player. Not everyone can become a college player. Not many play high school, even being a part of a high school team. It takes hard work and dedication just to have that first act of playing high school football to become a reality. Off the field you've got to hit the books and not fall to peer pressure. But on the field, you must let your talent speak for you. You got to have the mindset of a man working to feed yourself. You may play in different positions in any game. You may not play but a few games in a high school career.
Fantasy football is incredibly popular, with tens of millions of people taking part each year. Many leagues are casual affairs where friends or coworkers simply play for fun, although they may have a small buy-in and play for money. There's a multitude of ways to play, from gaming out entire seasons to weekly contests. Some of these even operate year round, so you’re not just limited to the regular football season. Beginners and veterans alike can confidently enter the game with fantasy football draft kits and begin competing for cash or glory. Of course, both small and large money leagues contain the same risks as other forms of gambling, so proceeding with caution is advised.
Once upon a time the Legends Football League was a renegade type of sports brand. Occasional fights went viral online. Furious coaches and players cursing out their enemies, without shame, and wardrobe malfunctions were a part of an explosive game that grew in skill year-by-year.
It’s been three days since the free agent market has opened, and already there have been trades and signings that changed the landscape of fantasy football for the 2019 season. There are plenty of viable fantasy assets without a team, and I will investigate their value and the best landing spot for some players for fantasy purposes. But before we do, let’s take a quick look at some of the more notable signings, and their impact on the 2019 fantasy season.
