However, here are a few  players that will serve a significant purpose to the black and gold this year. Here are my top ‘five’ players you should keep your eye on leading up to the start of the 2014 … Continue reading

Training Camp Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers’ Cornerbacks

Ike-Taylor

Maybe the one position on the entire Pittsburgh Steelers team that has the most question marks going into the season is the cornerback spot. Between players under-achieving and the lack of proven talent at the end of the roster, the cornerback position remains one of the most intriguing positions to watch during training camp and preseason for a variety of reasons. The Steelers were the ninth best pass defense in the league in terms of … Continue reading

Here are some recent tibits of fantasy football information that I tweeted out via the Game Split App on rotoviz.com. I like Kendall Wright as a FF sleeper this year, but his connection with Locker worries me: (via @rotoViz) pic.twitter.com/fFRkg1BJTm — Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) July 22, 2014   Prorate Terrance Williams' rookie year w/o Miles Austin and you are looking at WR17 in 2013 (via @rotoViz) pic.twitter.com/tBYm9qTaJa — Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) July 22, 2014   … Continue reading

Are The Steelers Finally Getting Younger On Defense?

temp2014_OTA_0527aa_0142_1-nfl_mezz_1280_1024

Ever since the Steelers won Superbowl XLIII in 2009, their 2000′s version of the Steel Curtain has officially been deemed “over the hill.” The Steelers, in fact, technically had the oldest defense in the league up until the offseason of 2014. Over the past two seasons, we’ve seen long time black-and-gold members hang there hat with the Steel City – the likes of which include former Pro Bowl players in  James Harrison, Casey Hampton, and … Continue reading

Rolando McClain Scouting Report

Rolando-McClain

When the Dallas Cowboys traded for Rolando McClain, a lot of the media and fans wondered why the team would trade for a former first round bust at linebacker who retired twice. And before I had any thoughts about the trade, I wanted to go back and review the All-22 film to see what happened to McClain in Oakland. And I was pleasantly surprised. Let me make this clear, Oakland did not release Rolando McClain … Continue reading

dez-bryant

This Dez Bryant interview is via www.tddaily.com and was done by Yaron Weitzman: Follow him on twitter @YaronWeitzman. TD: How you feeling about the Cowboys chances this season? DB: Truthfully, man, I feel good. The work that we put in, the approach that we’ve all come into the off-season with as a team, it’s been crazy. I’m going on my fifth year in the league now and honestly, I’ve never felt like this about our team … Continue reading

Is Antonio Brown A Product Of Ben Roethlisberger?

Antonio-Brown

Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swann. Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin. We, as fans, always want to try to figure out which player made the other better. Over the weekend I polled many different Steeler fans and asked them one simple question. Does Ben Roethlisberger make Antonio Brown? If you were to give Brown an average quarterback in 2013, does Brown put up similar stats? How has Roethlisberger done without Brown? … Continue reading

Making the Case for Julio Jones as Fantasy’s #1 WR

77107001

I’ve begun to notice that many players in the NFL are slapped with the “injury-prone” label, and often times, they don’t deserve it. Percy Harvin is an injury prone player, but players like Pierre Garcon, Jamaal Charles, and Frank Gore are not. Garcon and Gore have only had one season in which they’ve played less than fourteen games, while Charles has only had one ACL-ending injury season and played in fifteen or more games for the … Continue reading

Why History Shows Dez Bryant Could Be An All-Time Great WR

dez bryant featured

If you haven’t heard, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was ranked according to a group of anonymous NFL players, as the 25th best player in the league on the NFL Network’s Top 100 Countdown. And while I have no problem with the 25th overall ranking, I did have a problem with some of the receivers ranked ahead of him. If you asked 32 general managers in the league who they would’ve rather have had … Continue reading

calvin-johnson-lions1

When I look through PPR wide receiver fantasy rankings, something just seems off. I disagree with quite a bit of the top-5. And those are rankings that should be consistently agreed upon, right? So, where does the disparity come in? I break out the fact sheets and add a little personal opinion to give you my top-5 wide receivers for fantasy football in 2014. Just as a precursor, Josh Gordon would most likely have found … Continue reading
