The Facts: When the Eagles decided to trade quarterback Nick Foles and a second-round pick to St. Louis for Bradford heads shook and eyebrows were raised around the league. Some of those heads are still shaking. "I understand they gave up on Foles,' one of the league's top executives said. "But I don't know why they're building up Bradford so much. I'm still confused about that whole deal. You can only talk about him being the first pick of the draft (in 2010) for so long. What has he done since then?"
Diehards Line: Star-Ledger staffer Mark Eckel spoke with the unnamed exec as part of a series looking at Philly's personnel. "If Bradford had gone anywhere else you wouldn't even be talking about him," the executive explained. "He's been hurt the past two years and even when he was healthy, he was just average. But he's with Chip Kelly, so there's hope I guess. Chip Kelly is the one guy who can make Bradford a success.' Bradford, in five years with the Rams, played in 49 of a possible 80 games and missed the second half of the 2013 season and all of the 2014 regular season with two torn ACLs. In those 49 games, he's completed 58.6 percent of his passes and had 59 touchdowns compared to 38 interceptions. The most troublesome numbers is probably his 18-30-1 win/loss/tie record. Still, what the Eagles, and Kelly, like about Bradford as opposed to Foles is his quick release and quick decision making progress two important factors in the team's up-tempo attack. That said, Bradford still needs to prove he's fully recovered from that most recent ACL repair before fantasy owners should get too excited. We'll be watching for more.

Trent Richardson Showing Some Quickness? Monday, July 6, 2015 | Time: 12:28 PT |  Reported by NFL.com

The Facts: While praising his offensive line's potential, Raiders assistant coach Mike Tice took the time to discuss the running backs who will be jaunting through the holes his group plans to create. The Raiders imported Richardson, Roy Helu and rookie Michael Dyer to a backfield of Latavius Murray and George Atkinson. "Each one has their own style," Tice said. "I like the Murray kid. He really came on in that veteran minicamp. He got his legs under him and showed some quickness, some good finish. I thought the young man out of Alabama (Richardson) came on. He lost some weight, his quickness came around. "And then the young man we picked up out of Washington (Helu), a local boy out of San Ramon, I think he had an outstanding offseason and he shows good quickness, good awareness."
Diehards Line: As NFL.com's Kevin Patra notes, Tice's comments on Richardson are notable. According to the running back, the Colts had an issue with his weight last season, which in part led to his struggles on the field. Richardson rarely hit the hole with burst -- if he could find it -- in 2014 and never displayed consistent power or speed. The Raiders are the third team to take a chance on the former No. 3 overall pick. If Richardson did in fact lose some weight and add quickness, he could find a niche behind Murray and Helu -- who should be the third-down and pass-catching back. But nobody should set the expectations for anything more than what we've seen to date.

Fifteen Fantastic CFF Sleepers in 2015

Fifteen Fantastic CFF Sleepers in 2015 

 

The Gridiron Scholar


While NFL Fantasy Football is a countrywide cultural obsession, the CFF game lags far behind in popularity. With the rise of Daily Fantasy Sports, college football fanaticism is bound to proliferate, and fans are seeking information in order to navigate the new frontier among 128 FBS teams. 


To assist veterans and rookies in the CFF universe, the results of our Mock Draft were analyzed in order to provide value and insight into over-looked and under-valued performers. Only players selected after the seventh round (and several added free agents) were scrutinized and provided projections for each in 2015.

 

Player, Team (Round, Overall Pick in Mock Draft)


RB Larry Rose III, New Mexico State (Round 8, 95)

In only 10 games last season, the Aggie freshman exploded for 1,102 yards rushing with nine touchdowns. He rambled for over 100 yards in five games, including a 229-yard effort against Louisiana Monroe. Averaging 110.2 yards per game and 5.9 yards per carry, Rose became the focal point of a passing-deficient offense. New Mexico State runs an up-tempo, quick-passing scheme with a single runner in the backfield, and the Fairfield, Texas native will garner plenty of carries in 2015. 

2015 Projections

Passing Yards and TDs: 1,330 and 13

Rushing Yards and TDs: 300 and 1

Total Fantasy Points: 247
