Don’t Overpay for a Young Shane Vereen

Source: Rookie Progress Report: Paul Perkins: [O]ffensive coordinator Mike Sullivan liked the versatility that Perkins brought to rookie minicamp in early May. His ability to play all three downs will also help protect Eli Manning on the money downs. “This is a guy who was a leader on his team, very bright,” Sullivan said. ”He is a three-down back possibility and here is someone that can have the good hands to catch the football out of the backfield. You talk about third down and it is really the mental aspect of it, being able to have the awareness of who…...

Prosise: Finishes minicamp looking healthy and impressive: Since missing the near entirety of OTAs with an injured hip flexor, Prosise seemed to have triggered some anxiety with head coach Pete Carroll: “It is frustrating because we had a really big plan for him,” Carroll admitted after the first day of minicamp regarding the rookie’s absence. However, Prosise was a full-participant for the following two days of practice, and left Carroll with nothing but good things to say about the running back as the minicamp came to a close. “This was his best day as a Seahawk.

Just Win Baby: The Story of LeGarrette Blount’s Path to Fantasy Relevance

Source: Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount will be a lot more fun behind a good offensive line – Pats Pulpit: Football Perspective created a heat map for 2015 running backs with more than 100 carries in order to see how backs produced their yards. Do they break away for huge gains? Are they consistent 4-yard grinders? Do they ever lose yardage? It turns out that Blount gains positive yardage at the highest rate in the league, which is surprising when you think of how bad the offensive line performed in 2015. Blount gained positive yards on 9% more plays than average,…...

I’m Fading Tyler Lockett (And I’m Scared As Hell)

DeMarco Murray Is Actually Good. But Is He a Value?

Source: DeMarco Murray happy to be running downhill again – NFL.com The stretch runs that were a staple of the Eagles’ offense under Kelly were an awful match for Murray. Now in the Tennessee Titans’ smashmouth brand of offense with Mike Mularkey, the running back is enjoying a snugger fit. “I do. It’s strictly downhill and that’s what I’ve been accustomed to my entire life,” Murray said on The Jim Rome Show. “Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn’t work out, but I’m very excited about this upcoming season and looking forward to it.” As bad as DeMarco…...

Mohamed Sanu Might Actually Be a Thing in 2016

Source: Nate Burleson thinks Mohamed Sanu will be great – The Falcoholic When many expected the Falcons to add a speedy wide receiver in the offseason, the team drew a pretty disappointed response when they signed Mohamed Sanu. He was considered more of a possession wide receiver, but struggled with securing the football and fell down the Cincinnati Bengals’ depth chart last season. He then received a 5-year, $32.5 million deal that has been called one of the worst moves of the offseason by multiple websites. I’m not sure if we ever considered this possibility, but what if Sanu ended…...

Is Any Jaguars’ Running Back Worth Drafting?

Yeldon and newcomer Chris Ivory to form an effective combination. But barring a wild formation, only one will be on the field for the season’s opening play. Ivory is more accomplished — his 1,070 yards last year were fifth in the league. “Ivory is someone that we’re counting on so his adapting to the offense is critical,” Olson said. Yeldon was here last year — he carried the run game until an early December knee injury —…...

The Next Brandon Marshall or The Next Stephen Hill?

Source: Quincy Enunwa has gone from nearly cut, to key contributor on Jets offense | Jets Wire: “We weren’t sure if he was a guy that was going to be able to make our team” Jets receivers coach Karl Dorrell said at minicamp last week. Enunwa has come a long way from roster-bubble player, to key contributor on the Jets offense. When injuries depleted New York’s tight end position in 2015, instead of signing someone off the street, the Jets elected to work with what they had. They studied their roster, saw this stocky, 6-2, 225-pound wideout, and decided to…...

Is this Small School UDFA the Chargers’ Next Deep Threat?

Williams worked his way into the first-team drills in Benjamin’s absence and he justified the coaching staff’s faith with a touchdown catch over Craig Mager, the Chargers’ third-round cornerback draft pick last year. Allen — fresh off a contract extension — is far and away the team’s top receiver and Benjamin was signed away from Cleveland to replace…...

One Team that Actually Should Run the Ball More in 2016

Source: San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy’s margins of victory – Bolts From The Blue [Y]ou can see in 2013 & 2014 that in general the team followed along the path most teams do – passing more when you’re trailing, and running more when you’re leading. In 2015, however, there are noticeably more high-pass% performances near that leading end of the table. We don’t have to connect a lot of dots to figure that many of these leads were lost because there was not a reliable running game to rob the opponent of comeback-time. * * * I would…...
