NFL players poised for a breakout season in 2014

Every year the landscape of the NFL is changing. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. With the way, the salary cap is and the constant turnover in talent, things can change drastically over a calendar year. Each season young players mature and come into their own, and others regress. These are the NFL players poised for a breakout season in 2014.

Montee Ball, Denver Broncos: As the number two running back behind Knowshon Moreno in 2013, Ball put up respectable numbers rushing for 559 yards and 145 receiving yards as a rookie.…

Blake Bortles: He’s a keeper

Do you play in a Fantasy Football keeper league? If so, drafting Blake Bortles and using him as one of your keepers may set the path for your fantasy future.

Now, that doesn’t mean I am telling you to grab Bortles in the fifth round. Not even close. His recent outings, and training camp praise may have people looking out for him, but no one is going to grab him as their QB2. Odds are, Blake Bortles will still be sitting at the very end of your draft.…

Jaguars officially tanking in 2014

In 2011, after Peyton Manning needed neck surgery, the Indianapolis Colts tanked for Andrew Luck. In 2014, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who drafted their quarterback of the future in Blake Bortles, are tanking for some unknown reason.

The team recently named veteran Chad Henne the starter in a big Week 1 road game against the Philadelphia Eagles.…

NFL players need to learn to stay out of trouble

I’m aware that all NFL players and athletes in general, are just human beings. Humans make mistakes, that’s part of the growing up process in life. For some, it takes a little longer, others, get a good grasp on it right away. However, I am completely baffled by the legal predicaments these young men with prominent careers manage to put themselves in.

Just this week Le’Veon Bell and LaGarrette Blount of the Pittsburgh Steelers were both arrested for marijuana possession. The number one and two running backs on a team with the potential to win the AFC North, two weeks before the season opener, both put themselves in a terrible position.…

Toby Gerhart: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

Sometimes you become a sleeper by being the only option available. That’s the case of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart.

Jacksonville gave Gerhart starting running back money this offseason, so you should fully expect them to give him the ball early and often this season.

The fact that Gerhart has an average draft position of 64 and is the 25th running back taken on ESPN leagues blows my mind. Gerhart has surprising speed for a back his size; he is a bruiser who has trained under Adrian Peterson and hasn’t dealt with overwhelming bodily harm since entering the NFL in 2010.…
