2017 NFL Midpoint Evaluations

Midpoint Evaluation The NFL is unlike any of the other major sports in America.  Its season is only 17 weeks long and teams are only guaranteed to play a total of 16 games.  Counting the 4 playoff weeks and the week for the Pro Bowl, that means we as fantasy “experts” have 30 weeks of … Read more

NFL Midpoint Evaluation: NFC West

NFC West Seattle Seahawks (5-2) – Offensive Points per Game (10th) Yards per Game (7th) – This may come as a surprise to some of you but Seattle has slowly morphed from the dominant defense that destroyed Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl a few years ago into a high-flying attack.

NFL Midpoint Evaluation: AFC West

AFC West Kansas City Chiefs (6-2) – Offensive Points per Game (3rd) Yards per Game (2nd) – Unbelievably shocking. Considering they drafted a QB early with the obvious intent to replace Alex Smith had he had another down year, and they lost their starting RB before the season even began, this was unforeseen by everybody.  … Read more
