Dwayne Allen Is The Perfect Late Round Tight End

Jordan Reed. Julius Thomas. Jordan Cameron. All of these players have seemingly come out of nowhere to have remarkable top five seasons at the tight end position. While many players have the potential to have a surprise season, I’m here to tell you why I believe Dwayne Allen will be a top five tight end this year. This offseason the Colts lost tight end Coby Fleener to the Saints and chose not to re-sign Andre Johnson. In total Indianapolis lost 215 targets and someone will need to take them. Former first round pick Phillip Dorsett is sure to inherit some of those, but…...

The Cowboys Will Have One of The Most Improved Offenses in Football

Plenty has been written about the Cowboys drafting Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth overall pick of this year’s NFL draft. Regardless of whether or not he is currently being overvalued by fantasy players, it’s clear that many expect him to step in and immediately be one of the top running backs in the NFL…....

Paul Perkins to the Cowboys? The Rookie Landing Spot That Could Shake Up Dynasty Drafts

We’ve been doing some speculative rookie landing spot discussions around here lately, and contemplating what the implications of these dream scenarios would be for rookie dynasty drafts. Today let’s take a look at Paul Perkins going to the Cowboys. According to Dynasty League Football’s rookie ADP, Perkins is currently the RB7 and 19th overall player off the board in rookie drafts. While many believe that there are better backs in the class than Perkins, the Cowboys have brought in five backs for pre-draft visits: Ezekiel Elliott Derrick Henry Paul Perkins C.J. Prosise Kenyan Drake So the Cowboys have definitely shown…...

Mitch Mathews Looks Like Marques Colston on a Lot of Measures

I tend to write off players that don’t garner an invite to the NFL combine. There are exceptions, like Southern Miss’ Mike Thomas. Another player who appears to be an exception to this is BYU receiver Mitch Mathews. Not only does he have solid production, but he is one of the best athletes at the position in this class. Mathews is also a physical specimen at 6 feet 6 inches, 222 pounds. He’s a big receiver with solid production and elite athleticism, which should make him one of RotoViz favorite prospects. Athleticism Mathews killed his pro day, posting the following numbers:…...

Rishard Matthews: This Year’s Best Free Agent Receiver

With Alshon Jeffery being franchise tagged, most believe this year’s free agent wide receiver class to be pretty underwhelming. Travis Benjamin, Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Rueben Randle, and Anquan Boldin are the biggest name free agents to hit the market, but none of them are actually the best receiver available. Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews quietly had one of the most efficient seasons in the league last season. Matthews is only 26 years old, and should be entering the prime of his career. With good college production, excellent efficiency, and solid workout numbers, Matthews fits the profile of a receiver on…...

2016 Rookie Class Dominator Ratings: Wide Receiver Edition

Dominator Rating and Market Share are commonly used on RotoViz when evaluating prospects. The concept of Market Share is simple: it’s the percentage of team receiving yards or touchdowns. The Dominator Rating takes the average of these two Market Share numbers to show how much of their team’s passing game a player produced…....

2016 NFL Draft Prospect: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

At this point in the draft process, basically every football fan knows Ezekiel Elliott. He’s the face of one of the top programs in college football, and helped lead the team to a national championship last season. Elliott has already declared for the draft and is generating first round buzz, a rarity for a running back in this day and age. What makes Elliott such a special prospect? 2014 Dominance In 2014, Elliott’s production was simply amazing.  He had 273 carries for 1878 yards (6.9 ypc) and 18 touchdowns, while also contributing 28 receptions for 220 yards. And if these numbers…...

2016 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Wayne Gallman, RB, Clemson

The Clemson Tigers are the number one team in the country, sporting an undefeated record and one of the most talented teams in the nation. While quarterback Deshaun Watson has been the player receiving the most attention, running back Wayne Gallman has had a great season as well. Despite the national attention his team receives, virtually no one has mentioned Gallman as an NFL prospect. I believe that if he were to declare, he would easily be a top five running back in this year’s class. Gallman’s production and athleticism make him one of the most underrated players in this year’s…...

Bowl Prospect Preview Extravaganza: Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech

This coming Saturday, Kenneth Dixon and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. Dixon will be the most heralded prospect taking the field. He comes in as the number six running back in the class according to the Rotoviz Scouting Index…....

Meet David Johnson: Your Ticket to a Championship

During Sunday’s win against the 49ers, the Arizona Cardinals top two running backs went down with injuries. Starter Chris Johnson was placed on IR designated to return, and the soonest he can return is January 26th. Oft-injured backup Andre Ellington suffered a turf toe injury, leaving his status for Sunday’s game uncertain. That leaves rookie David Johnson as the primary back in one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses. While Johnson is being billed as this week’s top pickup, he should turn out to be much more than that. With favorable matchups over the next three weeks, great athleticism and college…...
