In my preseason power rankings, I said that this team was a 9-4. Week 1 confirmed my belief that this will be a playoff team.
I like this team a lot... and half their talent is still suspended. Scary.
3. The Prospectors
I have my questions about Tannehill... However, there is too much talent everywhere else not to consider this a top 4 team. Deandre Hopkins was a pleasant surprise in Week 1.
Let’s be honest, that Dez Bryant injury hurts bad. I have no doubt Adam can adapt and make the moves he needs to make to remain competitive… But it still hurts. If the Nomads can survive until Dez gets back, this team is a no brainer for the playoffs -- think about this for a moment: Eddie Lacy, Carlos Hyde, Arian Foster, and Dez Bryant... That's pretty scary. Until then, I still have a few questions - WR specifically… Amari Cooper and Allen Robinson? Eli Manning?
I’m not panicking too much after Week 1… but I do have my concerns, specifically at the WR position… Would not be surprised if you see Scott making some trades for a true #1 WR.
I'm still warm on The Woodsmen. They were the 2nd highest scoring team in Week 1, however, the jury is still out... Let me explain -- I never place too much weight on tight ends and defensive scoring. In Week 1, Josh had Kelce go for 22 and Seattle's D score 18. I don't want to take anything away from The Woodsmen 113 score, I just want to explain why he is not ranked higher.
The biggest mover and shaker this week has gotta be Preston and The Mountain Warriors! This team is sneaky good — don’t get hung up on their score in Week 1. Look at his bench: Bishop Sankey (20 points), Danny Woodhead (18 points), and James Jones (17.1 points). Now add in his starters, Aaron Rodgers, Jarvis Landry, Demaryius Thomas, Brandin Cooks — this team has a lot of depth and scoring potential. Top 5 team no questions.
Big tumble this week for the preseason favorite. I have real concerns about CJ Anderson and the lack of depth at RB for ole' Silver..
Jeb and the boys put up more points than I thought they would... I still don't recognize a lot of the players on that roster, but I like saying their names - FUNCHESS!
As stated, I don't think you are getting the Manning of yesteryear this year... Sorry Jason :(
