Fantasy Fallout: End of Football Season Review

Happy New Year Project Shanks Nation!

I thought it would be a good idea to hit you folks one more time with a complete wrap up of the season. By now all the celebration and heartache should be concluded. So maybe the pain of a losing season will sting a little bit less. All things considered, I have to view this season as a personal success. I lost my mind during the registration period and committed to six fantasy football leagues. The settings for each league varied, but each league was stocked with quality competition. So it was a brutal year.

In the end, I walked away with one championship after making the playoffs in five of six leagues. My lone title came in my Dynasty League. I finished the regular season in second placed and faced off with the first place team in the finals, just as it should be. I was without my franchise QB, Aaron Rodgers, in the second half of the season, but when the dust settled, I was the last man standing.

My six-pack provided first, second, third, fifth, seventh and 11th place finishes. So next year, I only plan to play in three leagues and hope to improve the number of championships I bring home.

This fantasy football season was pretty awesome overall. Not just because I was winning but because so many different guys stepped up to have great years. Games were fun to watch and the stats accumulated were just ridiculous. When people start talking about the fantasy football MVP, there is really just one name at the top of the list. Some folks will try to make an argument for players other than Peyton Manning, but let’s be real here. Peyton posted the highest fantasy point total of the past three years and broke several NFL records.

Peyton wasn’t the only guy putting up crazy numbers though. So here is a look at the top performers and biggest disappointments of the fantasy football season.

Peyton Manning:
Manning was the overall Fantasy MVP this year and best QB. 440 Fantasy Points is just plain silly. From opening night when Manning threw seven TD passes all the way through his record 5,477 passing yards and record 55 TD passes, Manning was simply brilliant. Many fantasy owners rode his arm to the championship while many others kicked themselves for writing off Peyton as being too old.

Drew Brees: After posting a league best 354.76 points in 2012, Brees came back this year to do the same plus a couple points more. Even though his numbers were over five points a game less than Manning this year, I doubt you will find any of his fantasy football owners who are disappointed with this production. This is the third year in a row what Brees has been one of the top two scorers in the league.

Andy Dalton: I was surprised his numbers ranked this high, but Dalton was third in overall scoring and fifth in scoring per game. He was actually dropped at some point in my Keeper league and I’m pretty sure that guy has been kicking himself for that move every step of the way. The future is bright in Cincy.

Philip Rivers: I was very surprised nobody gave Rivers much of a chance to come back this year. His numbers had been down for a couple years with bad management and poor coaching. With new brass, he was destined to return to the 4,500-yard, 30-plus TD QB he proved to be this year.

Nick Foles: The future is also very bright in Philly, which pains me to say as a Cowboys’ fan. Foles was on fire from the minute he took over the starting gig for the Eagles. All he did was lead league in passer rating with a sick 27:2 TD:INT ratio. He is set up to be a top five QB pick up next year.

Demaryius Thomas:
Manning never discriminates when passing and the Broncos had five players with double-digit touchdowns this year. However, Thomas was clearly the big dog and the big dog always eats first. Thomas led the Broncos in receptions, targets, yards, yards per catch, yards per game and touchdowns on his way to leading all fantasy WRs in points. That is simply outstanding.

Josh Gordon: Had Gordon not started the year in time out, or if he had a quality QB, he may have finished the season No. 1 overall. He was third in total points scored and led all WRs in points per game. Fantasy owners willing to wait out his early suspension were heavily rewarded all year long. If the Browns draft wisely and get this kid a QB, he could easily emerge as the league’s best WR very soon.

Calvin Johnson: Megatron will never stray too far from the top spot. However, I’m sure I’m not the only Megatron owner who suffered playoff defeats while the Lions limped to the finish line. With the upcoming change in coaching staff, hopefully next year will bring a stronger second half performance.

Antonio Brown: Pittsburgh was underrated and forgotten after the 0-4 start, but Brown had his best season as a pro. Brown finished second in total points and fourth in points per game. He is the Steelers’ best offensive weapon and will remain so as long at Big Ben keeps dropping bombs deep down the field.

AJ Green: The Dalton to Green connection is simply one of the best in football, in my opinion. They will only get better as the entire team matures and Green is one of the top young WRs to own in fantasy football. He is the cornerstone WR of my keeper team, and I couldn’t be happier moving forward.

Jamaal Charles:
Of all the “top RBs” in the league, I was least interested in Charles entering the season. I didn’t bid on him in any auction or considered him in any snake draft. For all of you were fully aboard the Charles bandwagon, congratulations. Had Manning not had a record shattering year, Charles likely would have been the fantasy MVP. He did absolutely everything you could want from a franchise RB.

Matt Forte: Chicago was good for most of the year and Forte was a huge part of it. He stayed healthy, happy and productive all year long which resulted in some amazing numbers. The Bears generally seem like a dysfunctional family to me. So whether or not Forte remains happy next year may determine how productive he is going forward. Still, for this year, he was simply one of the best RBs to own.

LeSean McCoy: I read preseason reports that tabbed McCoy as a candidate for best RB of the year. Chances are he proved to be that in some other systems. In our scoring system that awards points for receptions, McCoy fell a little short. That said he was the only RB in the league to actually average 100 plus yards rushing. A ton of the scoring for these other top backs came through their receiving skills.

Marshawn Lynch: Beast Mode is one of my favorite RBs. His total fantasy points increased for the third straight year and he is firmly established as a cornerstone type player. Lynch goes out every week and produces. He won’t get mixed up in controversy or distracted by off field stuff. He simply plays football.

Knowshon Moreno: Nobody saw this season coming from Moreno. All signed pointed to him being part of a back-up time share to a rookie. A lot of teams who were lucky enough to “get stuck” with him got a huge return on their investment. I doubt he comes back as a Top 5 RB next year, but this year was great.

Jimmy Graham:
Before the season the TE ranks were Graham then everyone else. The season essentially ended with the same ranks. Graham was #1 in total points by 55 points and No. 1 in points per game by about two points. He finished about 20 points, a 100 yards and one TD short of Rob Gronkowski’s record setting 2011 season. There is no reason to think he won’t be chasing that again next year.

Julius Thomas: The Broncos have a Top 5 performer in each offensive category. Much like Moreno, Thomas wasn’t expected to be one of them. Owners that grabbed him early got the TE who ranked third in total points and points per game. Double-digit TDs and 10 plus points her game from a TE is golden.

Vernon Davis: I have very low expectations for Davis entering the season due to how utterly putrid he was late in 2012 after Colin Kaepernick took over. I was totally wrong. Davis and Kaepernick were on the same page all season, and Davis finished only behind Graham in TDs and total points.

Tony Gonzalez: I’m very happy to see the Great Gonzo go out with a good year. Atlanta sucked out loud all year, but Gonzo ended the season ranked fourth in total points and seventh in points per game amongst TEs. Throughout his career, Gonzo only missed two games in 17 seasons. He finished his career with 1,325 receptions, 15,127 yards and 111 TDS, all TE records many generations will chase for decades to come.

Jordan Cameron: The Browns had it tough at QB all year, and Cameron suffered at times because of it. Still, this youngster has established himself as a Top TE candidate for the future with by finishing sixth in total points and points per game this year. Like Gordon, he needs the Browns to draft wisely this year.

Barry Church:
The Dallas defense his year was abysmal. I have struggled to find words to describe just haw atrocious it was. Somehow, in the middle of that suck fest, Barry Church managed to lead all DBs in total points and points per game by a healthy margin. As a Cowboy’s fan, I hope this is a sign of great things to come. For now, I’m just happy there I something positive to write about the Cowboys defense.

Eric Weddle: He ranked 12th in DB scoring in 2011, then followed that by ranking eighth in 2012 and made it to No. 2 this year. Weddle has become a consistent source of fantasy points from the DB position and should be close to the top of every cheat sheet until he falls off. I don’t see that happening any time soon and will continue to chase this guy in auctions and drafts each year.

Antrel Rolle: The Giants were not good this year on either side of the ball, but Rolle was a steady contributor all year. As an example of just how bad New York was, Rolle’s 129.37 points were second on the team, just 18.48 points behind the quarterback. That should never happen, ever!

TJ Ward: I talked about Ward several times throughout the year. Cleveland’s defense started out really good and fell off some throughout the year. Ward remained steady all year while his teammates began to slack and finished fourth in total points amongst DBs. This guy is a budding star in the IDP ranks.

Eric Berry: Kansas City had an extremely well balanced defense under Andy Reid this year and Berry was in great position to score fantasy points for his owners. He is probably the only member of the Chiefs’ secondary that deserves to return considering how awful they were against the deep ball late in the year.

NaVorro Bowman:
After 13 weeks of fantasy regular season play, Bowman ranked eighth in total scoring. Then the blew up over the final month, averaging over 15 fantasy points a game, to finish tied for first in overall points. That certainly helped his fantasy owners in the playoffs and pushed him to the top of my board. I thought Bowman was starting to slow down like his sidekick, Patrick Willis. Guess I was wrong.

Karlos Dansby: Arizona had a great season despite missing the playoffs and the defense, led by Dansby, was a huge part of their success. In the fantasy realm, Dansby consistently rewarded his owners week to week with stellar play and production. My friends who are Cardinals’ fans point to re-signing Dansby as the top priority for the team this offseason. I couldn’t agree more from a fantasy standpoint.

Paul Posluszny: There were virtually no positives to speak of for the Jacksonville Jaguars this year with the exception of stellar play by Posluszny. Posluszny led all LBs in per game scoring and would have led in total points as well had he not missed a game due to concussion. Posluszny remains an IDP star.

Lavonte David: Tampa Bay was also a train wreck this year, but David continues to grow as a budding superstar. After cracking the top 10 with 138 points last year, David climbed into the top 5 this year with 176. He should be a candidate to lead all LBs in scoring next year with even a slight increase in scoring.

Vontaze Burfict: Here is another of the many reasons I see a bright future for the Bengals. Burfict was a break out star in the IDP world this year finishing fifth in total points and points per game. The Bengals seem set to hold steady and let their young players continue to mature which is great for this guy.

JJ Watt:
Is this really as surprise to you? JJ is simply the best DL in the game. While everything else in Houston was fubar, Watt continued to go all out and wreck game plans. He fell short of last year’s insane scoring mark by about 26 points, but still led all DLs in total points and points per game. With any luck the new coaching regime won’t screw with JJ too much and he will continue leading the league in DL scoring.

Robert Quinn: I was thrilled to see someone step up and push JJ in DL scoring. Quinn wasn’t even in the top 25 last year but doubled his tackles and nearly doubled his sacks to finish with 19 on the season. For at least this season, his efforts put him on par with JJ. I look forward to seeing if he can produce at this level again next year. Quinn was easily to guy to have if you didn’t have Watt this year.

Chandler Jones: The fall off from Watt and Quinn to Jones is over 20 points or about a point and a half a game. As anyone who lost a close game this year knows, a point this or that way can pile up quick and cost you a win. Jones was a quality contributor this year and should be on many cheat sheets next year.

Rob Ninkovich: The Patriots always find a way to win and this year their Defensive Line did a lot of tough work. Ninkovich finished just four points behind Jones and has been a Top 6 scoring DL for three straight seasons. He is a safe fall back that will provide steady but not spectacular DL scoring each year.

Calais Campbell: The Cardinals were in a lot of games due to their defense and controlling the trenches thanks to this guy. Campbell was third in DL scoring in 2011, slipped out of the Top 12 in 2012 but was back in the mix this year. If he can stay healthy and be more consistent, his value would rise quickly.

MISSING IN ACTION 

Alright folks, we have looked back at the good. Now we get to take a look at the bad or just plain ugly. These are the guys that screwed your season and left you crying in the shower while your significant other showed no effort to hide her contempt and loathing while explaining to the kids that daddy was crying because he is an idiot that takes his stupid games far too serious.

I won’t spend as much time rubbing salt in these wounds, but there are a few guys in particular I want to sound off on. So I’ll probably comment on one or two guys at each position.

It may be petty for me to pick on this guy, but we are all accustom to Brady scoring in the top 5 scorer that carries fantasy teams to championships. His 235.78 points this year was over 100 points less than what he provided when he was the No. 3 scoring QB each of the last two years.

Eli Manning: Only in leagues with 14 or 16 teams should Eli have been considered anything more than a backup QB. So I’m not sure how he made it through the season with even 59% ownership. Eli threw 27 Interceptions. That’s more than RGIII, Romo and Foles combined. That is your epic fail of the season.

I think for the most part owners were just afraid to drop or trade these guys due to their history and the teams they played for. All five of these guys ranked in the 12-24 range for ownership while none provided Top 24 numbers. Torrey Smith was the only member of this group that topped 1,000 yards and none had more than five TDs. Even for point per reception leagues, these guys were all sub-par by any standard.

Ray Rice:
For the past few years, Ray Ray has been the cornerstone of my keeper franchise. The way he sucked through this year showed me the door was closed and it was time to move on. Getting 100 points from a RB is generally a pretty good return, but not for a guy owned in virtually every league and in many cases chosen in the first round to be the best player on a team. Farewell Ray Ray. It’s been fun.

Trent Richardson: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HA! I am by no means a Cleveland Browns fan, but it sure is nice to see a little guy punk the big dog. Good luck Indy!

I’m not going to pick on any of these TEs. It’s just too easy and it was really a crap shoot after Graham.

Patrick Peterson:
I don’t get it. This guy remained the first or second most owned DB throughout the year while not even breaking the top 50 in total points or points per game. There is probably a reason why your team lost and if you owned this guy, you don’t have to search too hard to find that reason.

Devin McCourty: I look at Devin’s final numbers and scratch my head. Not only was he the fifth most owned DB in the league, I even had him on my keeper team. I didn’t play him. He was on my bench. I’m just not sure why any of us held onto a guy who couldn’t crack the top 50. Damn too faith in the Pats.

James Laurinaitis:
I’m probably being overly critical of this performance for the same reason I was of Tom Brady. Laurinaitis is generally a top 5 scoring LB good for 145 plus points. Seeing his total points drop to 17th and points per game to 24th was a letdown, especially for guys like me who have him as the anchor of their defense in keeper leagues. Hopefully, this drop was only due to other Rams improving.

Tamba Hali and Terrell Suggs are getting shafted by being listed as LBs only. They are rush ends who would be top DLs in a 4-3 defense. As is, their fantasy point production is far less than their ownership levels would suggest. I couldn’t recommend having either guy on a fantasy squad as long as they are limited to the LB spot. Should either make the change to DL in the future, their value will skyrocket.

DeMarcus Ware:
As with virtually every Dallas Cowboys defender this year, Ware was a huge disappointment both in reality and fantasy. The switch to DL should have vastly increased his value and he was the fourth most highly owned DL. But his total points and points per game both fell outside of the Top 50. That is just all kinds of horrible. The man that was once unstoppable only managed six sacks this year.

I won’t pick on anyone else because the DL position as a whole is weak after JJ Watt.

Wrapping it up!

I must say it has been a great season. It was challenging to play so many leagues, but being able to write about it was somewhat helpful. The success I had is rejuvenating, although it left me hungry for even more next year. I hope that you found some of what I had to say this year helpful, or at least mildly entertaining. If it was both, that’s great. If it was neither, oh well, there is always next year.

If you want me to come back and do this next year, be sure to Like and Share Project Shanks Facebook page, send a message to the boss, Chris Stuckey, telling him you want to see this again in 2014 and of course, you can support Project Shanks by purchasing t-shirts, hoodies and other apparel.

For now, it’s time to hibernate and recuperate. I plan to enjoy the NFL playoffs and focus on improving my Fantasy Basketball teams. That should keep me busy until Spring Training opens. I think we’re about five weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to camp. Then all that’s left is deciding how many Fantasy Baseball leagues to join.

Last year, I played in seven baseball leagues. This year, I seriously have to cut back.

Hey, why that really sounds familiar?

Peace and Good Luck!
