Welcome to my in-season column. If you’re seeking strategic tips, match-up advice, game observations, IDP info, and dynasty advice with a little bit of current “football” events opinion (if anything involving the madness of the NFL commissioner’s office actually qualifies) added into the mix then you’ve come to the right place. Think of the in-season Gut Check column as a department store with a variety of areas:
- Futures (Rookies and College Prospects)
- Wild Side
RE-DRAFT: SANITY CHECK
The most challenging thing about the first three weeks of the season is discerning which events are a sign of things to come and which are fool’s gold. I’m dividing this basic diagnosis into four categories:
- True Positives: What you saw that was good in Week 1 is what you’ll get in the foreseeable future.
- False Positives: What you saw that was good in Week 1 is an illusion or rare confluence of positive circumstances.
- True Negatives: What you saw that was bad in Week 1 is what you’ll get in the foreseeable future.
- False Negatives: What you saw that was bad in Week 1 is an illusion or a rare confluence of positive circumstances.
I’ll be playing this game for two more weeks. Let’s quick Week 2 review last week’s list:
- WR James Jones (True Positive): The targets and looks from Rodgers in critical situations were there even if the box score total was not while drawing Richard Sherman. Davante Adams’ ankle injury likely seals the deal that Jones has at least another 2-4 weeks of primary receiver targets.
