Time to explore which players have been hot over the last two weeks. Also, I will list out who has been added and dropped the most by position. Since player’s have, dual eligibility (or more) they could show up under multiple positions. This is important for fantasy hockey owners to know which players are streaking and how to capitalize whether in yearlong or DFS fantasy hockey.
I put together a non-conventional Power Rankings list. I compiled various stats related to offense, defense, special teams and possession numbers and created a formula to rank the teams. I broke this out between Eastern and Western conference. The main objective of a team is first and foremost to win their conference. Overall rankings are fun to look at, but really conference ranks are more important.
Teams have played over a third of their season so far and with that said it is time to evaluate some under performers this season. There are many players that could be on this list but I will highlight a few here.
Through the good, the bad, and the ugly, the Jets stand at 9-5. A great improvement from a downright abysmal 2014 season, but after an offseason filled with roster upgrades, we can all agree it’s a playoff-or-bust year. However, the point of this article is to not voice my opinions on Jets’ playoff scenarios (for those, follow @RDH_Jets), it is to talk about the use of Jet’s players in daily fantasy for the upcoming two weeks. The good thing about choosing Jets in DFS is that you can guarantee the team will not choose to rest any players in upcoming matchups. The bad thing is the Jets face off against an always-tough Patriots team and the Bills, who will be treating Week 17 as their Super Bowl.
With the recent uproar of unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the NFL and beyond, I have decided to commit my time to go over some of the keys to what defines Unsportsmanlike conduct in the NFL.
To start, I would like to go over the all-stars when it comes to touchdowns dances, on field antics. Etc. In my lifetime there have been 5: Randy Moss, Joe Horn, Terrell Owens, Ickey Woods & St. Louis Rams which most people forget about. As a Packer fan it was hard to see Randy do that to us in the great venue we call the Frozen Tundra however, years later I find what he did hilarious and entertaining. We realize how harmless this was compared to Odell Beckham Jr. getting threatened with a bat last week against the Panthers. Joe Horn keeping a cell phone in the goal post was another one that was eye opening and hilarious although poor Joe had to pay $30,000 for that one phone call. My point is the players in the 90’s and early 2000’s had the flare to make us viewers at home laugh with their antics after the play compared to the players now that I like to call showboat.
