  • Undefeated Panthers Poised to Be a Serious Super Bowl Contender

    There’s no doubt that there’s been plenty of surprises this season in the National Football League, but the shock of the league at this point has to be the play of the now 10-0 Carolina Panthers, who look like the favorites to be playing in Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco in a few months.

    From possible league MVP in QB Cam Newton to a defense that is only going to get better with a healthy Charles Johnson, it’s hard to think that the Panthers are going to have a major slip up anytime soon.

    Most sports betting handicapping sites have the Panthers as the favorites to represent the NFC in the big game in early February, and for good reason.

    The team is going to have home field for the two possible playoff games, and it’s hard to think that any other NFC contender (Arizona, Seattle, Green Bay, anyone from the East) is going to able to dethrone this powerhouse.

    Getting to 10-0 with a dominating win over the Redskins on Sunday, the Cats are the 16th team to get to double-digit wins without a defeat in the Super Bowl era. All of those teams have made the playoffs, and six of the 15 teams to start 10-0 won the Super Bowl.

    Those teams to win the Super Bowl were the 1972 Dolphins, 1985 Bears, 1990 Giants, 1991 Redskins, 1998 Broncos and 2009 Saints. The odd fact was that the only team win the Super Bowl out of that group was the one that reached perfection – the 72 Dolphins, who are still waiting to pop the champagne on either the Patriots or Panthers to lose this season.

    One other odd stat on the Panthers thus far is the fact they are the first team to ever start 10-0 after a losing season.

    While the Cats won the NFC South last season going 7-8-1, they still had a losing record. They took last season’s playoff loss to the Seahawks and have learned from it, and have come out this season with a purpose.

    The Panthers still have a long way to go. They will celebrate winning the NFC South soon, and from there the next step is clinching home field in the conference.

    The skies the limit, but this team seems poised to make some serious noise in the postseason.

  • Report: Greg Hardy Losing Cowboys’ Support

    Controversy is nothing new to Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy, but the Cowboys front office is reportedly losing support for Hardy.

    According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Hardy has consistently missed meetings two weeks ago and was also late to a pregame meeting on Saturday night before the Cowboys played against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rapoport also added that if Hardy doesn’t improve his behavior, Cowboys head coach, could make an example out of him.

    Here’s the thing: the Cowboys should have made an example out of Hardy a loooong time ago. Despite being immensely talented, the Cowboys know they must make a tough decision (probably cutting him) in order to save this locker room, and this franchise from further embarrassment.

  • 2016 NFL Draft Headlines: Eagles show interest in Paxton Lynch, Cardale Jones and Ezekiel Elliott declare for draft

    The NFL draft is coming up faster than many people think, and teams are already doing their due diligence on top prospects. One of these teams would be the Philadelphia Eagles, who are already taking a close look at top quarterback prospect Paxton Lynch out of Memphis. According to Chris Steuber of ESN, Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Ed Marynowitz spent the Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field watching Lynch against the Temple Owls.  Lynch is 6 foot 7, and features a good arm, good aestheticism, and decent pocket presence. Playing in a spread offense at Memphis, Paxton would fit in nicely with Chip Kelly’s scheme.

    While Paxton Lynch has yet to declare for the NFL draft, two marquee players from Ohio State already have yesterday. After Ohio State’s devastating loss to Michigan State, running back Ezekiel Elliot and backup/starter Cardale Jones both declared for the 2016 NFL draft. In fact, after yesterday’s loss, Ezekiel Elliot stated that  there is “no chance of me coming back next year.”

    Ezekiel Elliott is by far the best running back prospect in this year’s draft. He has a great balance of speed, vision and power and also is a great blocker as well. With Todd Gurley proving that running backs can/should be drafted in the first round, don’t be surprised to see teams (cough, cough, New York Giants, cough cough) willing to use their first round pick on a running back like Elliott. In fact, Elliott could be a top-10 pick if he finishes the season strong.

    Cardale Jones is extremely talented, but raw. Jones has a huge arm, and Cam Newton-like mobility, but also has the decision-making and accuracy that is similar to Josh Freeman. Despite the inconsistencies on the field that eventually led to his benching, teams will take a flier on Jones based on tremendous talent and potential. Right now, he is a 4th-round pick in my opinion.

  • Week 11 Draftkings Expert Plays for Fantasy Football

    With Week 11 right around the corner, contributor “Louiescards” has some plays to help you with your DraftKings teams.

    Below, he’ll identify both a top play along with a value option at each position to serve as a guide while you build your lineups for cash games (head-to-head, double-ups and 50/50’s).


    Derek Carr $6,300 – Carr has become one of the better fantasy options over the past month of football and steps into a great matchup this week against a weak Lions secondary. He is taking advantage of the weapons he has in Cooper and Crabtree and we can expect a big game from the second-year QB here. Detroit ranks near the bottom in most of the major categories I look for when selecting a QB and have allowed a 105.7 QB rating on the season.

    (Value) Case Keenum $5,000 – If it is value you seek, then at a minimum price point Case Keenum makes for an interesting play this week against Baltimore. By now you should know that Baltimore has been one of the friendlier defenses to QB and WR on the season. There is certainly risk involved here considering the offense has not been good even with the guy they thought was more capable to do the job in the first place. With that said, it won’t take much for Keenum to give us a solid return and reach value for our cash games.

    Running Back

    Adrian Peterson $6,800
    – Green Bay is one of the teams I have targeted with RBs on the year as they have really struggled in that department. It just so happens that Peterson is back to being the electric runner we have seen in years passed. He is working on three straight 100-yard games and with the Vikings handing him the ball more he should have a very good shot to keep that streak going.

    (Value) Charcandrick West $4,500 – When Charles went down I was one of only a few that openly questioned whether West would see the role that everyone thought he would. Well I was wrong. West has essentially taken over the full-time gig with what looks to be a very similar skill set to Charles. His price point is way too low for a RB facing one of the worst rushing defenses in the league this week.

    Wide Receiver

    Mike Evans $7,300 – With DraftKings offering a full point per reception system it is hard to ignore just how good Evans is in this format. He is seeing a ton of targets and while the conversion rate has not been exceptional the results are still great. When you consider the fact that he is putting up these big numbers without reaching the end zone then you have to realize there is even more room for upside with him.

    (Value) Danny Amendola $4,000 – This is one of it not the most obvious value play on the board this week with the Patriots losing Edelman to a broken foot. Amendola saw 11 targets last week against the Giants in that thrilling win and should be in line for a very similar game against the Bills. He is hauling in a very high percentage of his targets on the year and will be a guy you can roster in all formats.

    Tight End

    Rob Gronkoswki $7,700 – Let’s not forget about Gronk in this situation, too. He had one of his best games of the season against this Buffalo team and is likely to get a few more looks than he has seen recently. This is one of those weeks where it is more than ok to roster a WR (Amendola) and a TE (Gronk) from the same team.

    (Value) Antonio Gates $4,800 – With the Chargers coming off of the bye week I expect Gates to be about as healthy as we have seen him recently. Rivers has no problem looking his way and has given him double-digit targets more often than not this year. With the full point-per-reception scoring on DraftKings, you should be inclined to go with a guy like Gates if you’re not paying up for Gronk this week. With the expected workload, he doesn’t even have to reach the end zone to pay off this price point, which should make him a very popular option.

  • Bills Coach Rex Ryan Says He Knows The Patriots Want to Beat Him

    The Patriots might be 9-0 and have firm control of the AFC East, but Bills coach Rex Ryan doesn’t expect his longtime rivals to let up when the two teams meet Monday night, Mike Rodak of reports.

    “Of course they want to bury me,” Ryan said Thursday. “No question they want to beat me. But this is nothing to do with me, it’s something to do with our team. Yeah, they want to put us away, there’s no question. When you look at it from their perspective, right now we’re second in the division, so of course they’re gonna try to do whatever they can.

  • NFL Rumors: Sam Bradford Out Next 2 Weeks?

    Sam Bradford has suffered plenty of injuries during his NFL career, and it looks like he just added another one to his list. Bradford might be in concussion protocol, but his separated left shoulder suffered on Sunday against the Dolphins might reportedly keep him out for 2 weeks or more.

    A source has told Eliot Shorr-Parks of that there was “no way” that Sam Bradford would be healthy enough to play in the next two weeks.

    With Bradford out, Mark Sanchez will be the starting quarterback next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Thanksgiving Day against the Detroit Lions. Replacing Bradford last week, Sanchez completed 14 of 23 passes for 156 yards, but also threw a red zone pick that cost the Eagles the game. Turnovers have always been a common theme with Sanchez, and Eagles fans are just hoping that his picks won’t ultimately cost them their season.
