There are many things in question when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings 2020 offseason. Is Diggs leaving? Is Everson Griffen leaving? Are they able to keep Waynes? What about Linval Joseph? Those are just a few of the questions. Minnesota has a cap space problem and are looking to make room which will see some of our loved, and not so loved players leaving this offseason. That is the NFL. Now I think Minnesota has some great plans for the offseason and they have already made some good moves by repositioning Gary Kubiak to Offensive Coordinator and now the hire of Dom Capers as the defensive assistant. Let’s get into it!
Michael Vick has become to be known as one of the most dynamic quarterbacks the game of football has ever seen. From College to the pros, Mike Vick was nothing short of eclectic. No one had ever seen a quarterback like Vick, he had a unique skill set that allowed him to be the best running back on the field and quarterback at the same time.
As we described in more detail in Part 1, we are not so much concerned about scheme fit in this scenario, but rather we are playing fantasy matchmaker with the running backs. Let’s now dive in on the rest of the top free agent running backs and where we think they’d best thrive for fantasy owners!
Week 3 in the XFL is fast approaching, and whilst there wasn’t as much hype behind Week 2 as it’s debut run, it’s still fun football and the rest of the season should be just as fun to watch. This Sunday, February 23rd, the St. Louis Battle Hawks are squaring off against the New York Guardians in East Rutherford, let’s take a deep dive into it!
Phillips went absolutely berserk in a closely contested shootout with the St. Louis Battlehawks in week 2. The Roughnecks receiver put on a clinic going 8 for 63 with 3 trips beyond the goal line to help push his team to 2-0. That was also good enough for 32.3 fantasy points and the number 1 spot on DrafKings. The three touchdown performance enabled Houston to produce a second consecutive XFL Star of the Week, the first being dual-threat quarterback PJ Walker. The weekly honor is decided of course by the fans, in a Twitter poll put out by XFL Football Operations.
Remember when Tim Tebow defeated the Steelers in the playoffs? What fun times that was. Tim Tebow is someone that would such a fun an exciting player in the XFL and would surly spice the league up and add more excitement for fans.
Thursday, April 23rd, 2020. The NFL draft will be kicking off in 2 months. Free agency is great but I’ve always felt that the draft is when the new NFL season starts ramping up. Whether its a highly-ranked prospect being everything you hoped, getting a stud in the 5th round, or finding gold in a UDFA, the draft can fill you with hope about your team’s potential for the upcoming season. With only one pick before the 5th round, do the 49ers select a WR?
8. Tampa Bay Vipers (0-2) It is hard to place the only team yet to score an offensive touchdown anywhere, but last. Though they had troubles once again at the … Continue Reading XFL Power Rankings: Week 3
The Steelers need to rebound in 2020. But is Big Ben the man to bring the spark?
One of the biggest questions asked by football fans during the NFL off-season is, “where is that guy going to sign?” This question is asked for several reasons. Fans may want a star to come to sign with their favorite team, or they may not want their team throwing money at washed up veterans (still wishing the Lions hadn’t signed LeGarrette Blount a few years ago, ugh).
The Tennessee Titans had a hell of a run this past season, but now it’s time to turn their attention to the draft. After going (9-7) in the regular season and losing in the AFC Championship game, the Titans organization will dive in and see what players can help improve an already talented Titans squad.
Even though nestled far into its own little corner of the Pacific Northwest, far and away from much of the nation, Seattle is a city known for many things – Starbucks, grunge rock, salmon-throwing (?!) and all of the tech startups this side of Silicon Valley, Seattle takes one thing VERY seriously. Football. So, it only makes sense that there should be an XFL team in the Emerald City. And if you’re anything that resembles a ‘Hawks fan, it would only make sense that their first win of the season would come in a game decided by one score.
This or That?! On today’s episode Big Man Mike makes his long awaited return to the team and we have a great episode today! We give our reactions to the second week of the XFL highlighting some of the funniest moments to some of the most impressive moments. We then jump into this or that for dynasty fantasy football. We go through 8 different matchups where we have to pick one player over another player and then give analysis on why we chose that player!
Tristan Wirfs, a 6’5 322 lbs junior out of Iowa is not the most athletic draft prospect, that’s Jedrick Wills, not the most physically gifted or pro-ready, that’s Andrew Thomas, but he’s perhaps the most technically sound offensive lineman. As mentioned in a previous article, tackle duo of Mike Remmers and Nate Solder that allowed more combined pressures than any pair in the NFL, for the Giants. Both side of the trenches need to be addressed this off season, in the draft and free agency and unless Chase Young falls (unlikely) or the Giants move up (even more unlikely, there’s early reports their moving down with a quarterback needy team), they’re better off getting value drafting offensive-line early in the draft. Let’s discuss an early riser, the Iowa product, Tristan Wirfs.
There are quite a few teams that will be looking for some help in the backfield during the off-season. Teams that are rebuilding or that will be looking to add depth at a vital position for success will get their first shot at free agents until the draft in April. How aggressive will teams be in pursuing the players that they want, and who is willing to wait around for the best value?
The XFL was cool this weekend. I loved the fresh rules but more importantly the faster pace and more open style. There’s also serious talent in the league and potential stars.

Starting off with a preview of the Battle-Hawks/Guardians game coming up, i’ll take you through the teams, the matchups, some fantasy implications and also some betting discussion.
