 NAFL: Pre-Season and Projections

Go down 

PostSubject: NAFL: Pre-Season and Projections   Sat Oct 19, 2013 3:50 pm

What I did with the fantasy draft was I put the captains from the Blitz series mostly on the team that is from the city he was playing for (Mostly) outside of that the fantasy draft was fully simulated.  Injuries will be turned on.

Team's strengths and weaknesses, and Projections:

Montreal: Offense is ok, but the defense is awful.  Tom Brady at quarterback is the team's only asset.  Brady will be hit hard hard because the O'Line is truly the only thing keeping this offense from being exceptional.  His ability to get up will determine how bad this team will go.

Projected Record: 5-11 (4th in NorthEast Division)

Boston is the opposite.  They have the best secondary in the league, and great pass rushers.  The ability to have good ball control on offense will be key.  The play of Jay Cutler will be the deciding factor wether this team can go deep into the playoffs.

Projected Record: 11-5 (NorthEast Division champs)

New York is a lot like Boston.  Where Boston has a legendary pass defense, New York's front 7 is stout, with the best linebacking core in years.  RG3 will provide enough offensive punch, and though Boston will probably play better in the regular season, I think New York has a higher playoff potential.

Projected Record: 10-6 (2nd in NorthEast Division)

Philadelphia is in a league of their own in terms of mediocrity. With a good running game, both on offense in defense, they may win a few games against mistake-prone teams, but they won't blow anybody away.

Projected Record: 7-9 (3rd in NorthEast Division)

Detroit has a strong passing attack.  Stafford can sling the ball to any distance with accuracy, and Cookie Wallace along with AJ Green at receiver are playmakers.  Watch their defense, although bad on paper, but they are loaded with veterans in the front 7.  This team's only glaring weaknesses are at running back at safety.

Projected Record: 8-8 (3rd in MidWest Division)

Cleveland has some problems.  Matt Schaub is indecisive, their running backs are aged, and  a poor pass defense.  Henry Cho and Antonio Gates can only do so much.

Projected Record: 5-11 (4th in MidWest Division)

Pittsburgh is the only team with no true weakness.  The only problem is their defensive line-up is, well, hit or miss.  The key to this team's success will be the receiving core: 2 years combined in the league across the 5 of them.  If Ben Roethlisberger and Steven Jackson can step up, this will be pretty good team.

Projected Record: 10-6 (MidWest Division Champions)

Cincinnati is like Pittsburgh.  Truly these rivals are fairly evenly matched.   Ezekial Freeman or Troy Polamalu?  Ray Rice or Steven Jackson?  Elmis Dumervil or James Harrison?  all of these are toss-ups.  

Pojected Record: 9-7 (2nd in MidWest Division)

The Chicago Cavaliers are a great passing team.  Their defense is weak however.  The play of the Offensive Line will determine their success.  Shane Spain is no longer a scrambler, but if you give him time to throw, this might be a great time.

Projected Record: 9-7 (3rd in Great Lakes Division)

The Milwaukee Warriors are like the Cavaliers.  However, their defense is better in coverage, and they have some running ability.  If Conrad Damon can escape the rush when needed, this team may go far.

Projected Record: 9-7 (2nd in Great Lakes Division)

The Minnesota BlackHawks might be the best team in the league.  Their only questions will be the play of Matt Ryan and the safeties.  The latter is the more prominent issue, as Ryan is truly underrated.  If the safeties step up, these guys could be champions

Projected Record: 12-4 (Great Lakes Division Champions)

The St. Louis Arches are an unfortunate bunch.  A truly average team in a great division.  Arian Foster and a decent pass defense will win them a few games.

Projected Record: 5-11 (4th in Great Lakes Division)

The DC Eagles have a huge playmaking potential.  Clayton Wescott may be Julius Williams 2.0.  Ok, maybe not, but he's a playmaker.  Reggie Bush at Running Back is a perfect compliment.  A reliable receiving core completes this solid offense.  However, outside of Jacob Williams at Defensive End, their defense is pretty bad.

Projected Record: 8-8 (3rd in Atlantic Division)

Charlotte has a real deep threat.  Grant Tanner literally threw a ball 105 yards (in the air) in a practice last week.  If Brenard Berrian can break the top off the defense like he should,  this will actually matter.  This team is similar to the Eagles in many ways, and defense is no exception

Projected Record: 8-8 (4th in Atlantic Division)

Atlanta has a destructive defense, that goes without saying.  But I'm not sold on their offense.  Mike Mexico is a playmaker, but their Offensive Line is well, awful.  Mexico will make mistakes.  If this defense can live up to expectations, I still don't think this team can make much noise.

Projected Record: 8-8 (2nd in Atlantic Division)

Miami has a lot going for them.  Mostly, it's Julius Williams, the best QB in the league.  But he has great receiving options in Vernon Davis at TE and Roddy White.  The defense is also underrated.  This team will make some noise possibly.

Projected Record: 10-6 (Atlantic Division)

New Orleans is truly a bad team.  Their defense sounds good on paper, but truly all their good players on that side of the ball are lineman and a a Cornerback that are over 30 years old.  Their situation at QB is horrific.  Chris Johnson at RB is their only bright spot, but what can he do without a good line?

Projected Record: 3-13 (4th in Southern Division)

The Memphis Marauders have a great running game.  Adrian Peterson can break the game open, especially with the good line he has in front of him.  But let's not oversell this team, their defense is mediocre and Donovan McNabb and Marvin Harrison are simply old

Projected Record: 7-9 (2nd in Southern Division)

Dallas is pretty good team with a consistent offense.  Brandon Marshall and Daunell Sullivan a playmakers.  The ability of Andy Dalton to play under pressure is key - the O-Line is pretty bad.

Projected Record: 10-6 (Southern Division Champions)

San Antonio is an enigma.  Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and Dallas Clark are the best passing combination in the league.  However, their defense is awful.  I can't see this team going far.

Projected Record: 7-9 (3rd in Southern Division)

Kansas City is a team that may be a dark horse.  Maurice Jones-Drew, and Cam Newton can make or break your game.  Their Defensive Line is fierce.  This team has some glaring weaknesses:  both of their good receivers are over 33 years old, and their safeties are pretty bad.  Some say this team has playoff potential, bit I don't see it.

Projected Record: 6-10 (3rd in Central Division)

Oklahoma City has a great offense.  Drew Brees, Frank Gore, and a great O-line are the heart of this team.  Although this team has a bad defense, I think this team's success will be based on the play of their receivers.  If these guys can make plays this IS the best offense in the league.  Time will tell.

Projected Record: 7-9 (2nd in Central Division)

Denver is one of the best teams in the league.  Tyler Neal might be the best running back in the league.  The rest of the offense is no slouch either:  good receiving core, great line, and Colin Kaeprnick- this might be the best offense in the league.  The defense is solid team.

Projected Record:  11-5 (Central Division Champions)

Albuquerque is another bad team.  I'm going out on a limb here and saying this is the worst team in the league.  Outside of an aging Lee Evans, this team has no other decent players.  The only thing good about this teams are their jerseys.

Projected Record: 3-13 (4th in Central Division)

Arizona is an average team.  Their passing offense is exceptional, but other than that they are below average.  Devin Hester as a return man is always a threat, but the defense will need to play well for them to go far.

Projected Record: 9-7 (2nd in SouthWest Division)

Las Vegas is another average team.  Kelvin Diggs is a great running back and Amos Newell anchors their defense.  The defense is run by a legendary Defensive Coordinator with a 3-4 blitzing scheme.  However, the passing game, offense and defense, is lacking.

Projected Record: 8-8 (4th in SouthWest Division)

Los Angeles is another great team.  Very consistent across the board, their only weakness is that there is not really a big play potential on this team.  I think Peyton Manning will manage, however.  Bruno Battaglia is also a destroyer.

Projected Record: 13-3 (SouthWest Division Champions)

The San Francisco Rush is my choice of a Dark Horse team.  Marshawn Lynch and Vincent Jackson are playmakers and Alex Smith is underrated.  If their defense can exceed expectations, they will go far.

Projected Record: 9-7 (3rd is SouthWest Division)

The Salt Lake City Tigers are another bad team.  However, they are very consistent across the board.  This team will not blow anybody away, but they might win some games nobody saw coming.

Projected Record: 5-11 (4th in NorthWest Division)

Seattle is similar to Boston.  They have good pass rushers and a good secondary.  Derelle Revis Is the best cornerback in the league.  Their offensive line is actually pretty good, and Kwazi Mbutabe is a warrior

Projected Record: 10-6 (2nd in NorthWest Division)

Vancouver is an amazingly underrated team.  Of the 4 teams that many say are the best (Denver, LA, and Minnesota being the others) this is the only known for their exceptional defense instead of offense.  Their defense is great, anchored by Patrick Willis.  On offense, the line is good and the players are young.  Carlos Coto is a reliable workhorse at Tight End

Projected Record: 12-4 (NorthWest Division Champions)

The Calgary Grizzlies are likely to not do well this year.  Tony Romo and Doug Martin are great players in the backfield, but outside of them, I don't see any good spots on this team.  Keep an eye on the O-line however, they are decent and if they give time to throw, they may be a team that can build in the next few years.

Projected Record: 5-11 (3rd in NorthWest Division)


Eastern Conference:
1st Round
6. Milwaukee--20
3. Miami--------35

Western Conference Championship Game
1. Los Angeles--27
3. Denver--------28

1. Minnesota (-10)--27
3. Denver--------------30

I have projected Denver to win.  Kaepernick, Neal and DeSean Jackson bring enough big-play potential along with a stout offenseive line and solid defense.  In this case, offense trumps defense and youth beats out experience.
