2020 Offseason Moves ‘Tournament’ (AFC North)

2020 Offseason Moves ‘Tournament’ (AFC North)

 

This year, for judging the offseason, now that we are through the bulk of free agency (and pre-Draft), we’re going to rank the team’s offseason moves within their divisions #1 (best) through #4 (worst). One division each day.

The best team (in our judgement) moving on to the final four of their conference, where we’ll rank those winners until we get to the final two (the Super Bowl matchup of the offseason moves) and then crowning one ‘the best’ team of the offseason…and the same finding single ‘worst’ team of the offseason.  

Looking at each team’s adds and losses together in one spot is often eye opening on just what certain teams really accomplished for the upcoming season. We’ll rank them and add some positive or mocking commentary all the way through...there are some teams that…that…I have no idea what they are doing.

And we’re looking at JUST the impact to 2020’s chase – 2021 draft picks or contract logic doesn’t matter. We’re just looking at a +/- player or talent impact to the 2020 cause.

Today we look at: the AFC North


AFC NORTH

--------------

 

1) CLEVELAND BROWNS

Key adds: Case Keenum, Kevin Johnson, Jack Conklin, Karl Joseph, Austin Hooper, Andrew Billings, Adrian Clayborn

Key losses: Christian Kirksey, Joe Schobert, Eric Murray, Justin Burris

Net pos./neg./neutral: POSITIVE impact

Commentary: The really key adds are Conklin and Hooper…both nice upgrades (yes, the draft analysts were all wrong about David Njoku…surprised?), Losing Kirksey-Schobert hurts, but the Browns had some depth to play with there. It’s a step in the right direction.

 

2) BALTIMORE RAVENS

Key adds: Derek Wolfe, Calais Campbell

Key losses: Chris Wormley, Hayden Hurst, Tony Jefferson, Michael Pierce, Patrick Onwuasor

Net pos./neg./neutral: POSITIVE impact

Commentary: The Ravens beefed up the front line with proven, veteran talent and let a bunch of players go they didn’t really use last season. It’s a lot of names lost, but not any key-to-operations players -- the Ravens are better in the end with this +/-. The late add of Derek Wolfe could be genius.

 

3) CINCINNATI BENGALS

Key adds: D.J. Reader, Trae Waynes, Vonn Bell, Mackensie Alexander

Key losses: Tyler Eifert, Darqueze Dennard, Andrew Billings, Nick Vigil, Dre Kirkpatrick

Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE impact

Commentary: Consider the Vikings have no corners now…two of them went to Cincy. Minnesota didn’t want them/suffered through with them and chose to move away – which must have been some signal to Cincy to then pick up/overspend on. Ridiculous.

Reader is nice, but Billings was just as good on the D-Line. Nick Vigil is a better player at LB than Vonn Bell is at safety. The Bengals shuffled names but did not get better. Good Luck, Joe (Burrow)!

 

4) PITTSBURGH STEELERS

Key adds: Eric Ebron, Chris Wormley

Key losses: Javon Hargrave, Tyler Matakevich, Sean Davis, B.J. Finney

Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE impact

Commentary: This is a virtual disaster, when you consider the Steelers are trying to keep up with/catch the Ravens – losing Javon Hargrave and Sean Davis is not helping that effort…it’s a huge hit/a big step back.

A big step back overall when you also consider adding Eric Ebron was ‘the big move’, which is a joke.

 

 -- The Browns had the best offseason in the AFC North, we’ll see if it allows them to be in the real NFL playoff hunt. Cleveland moves on to our AFC final four ‘winners’ bracket’. The Steelers just seem lost, spinning their wheels/flailing away…as they move on to the ‘loser’s bracket’ AFC final four.

2020 Dynasty Offseason/Best Ball Reports and Rankings Are Constantly Adjusting To All The Changes!

It’s time for season #2 of our last season’s debut subscription…Dynasty Offseason/Best Ball.

I created Dynasty offseason as a way to communicate rankings/valuations on (500+) existing players (and also 400+ IDPs) for Dynasty and Keeper planning purposes (trades, etc.) as well as getting the jump on Best Ball/MFL drafts that begin in February and run all the rest of the year.

The fastest growing success percentage/money earning with FFM scouting/rankings/etc. is in those Best Ball/MFLs – draft a deep roster and forget it until the season begins, and then just watch the results…no lineup settings, no trading. Just pay to compete, out-draft everyone else, and try and cash in on our early/better read on things.

Dynasty Offseason subscriptions will be available when College Football Metrics begins (1/3/20), and you can purchase as a combo or just individually the one you want/need. However, the Dynasty Offseason rankings, etc., will not kickoff until right after the Super Bowl (articles and reports will post in January but player rankings/mock drafts not until past the Super Bowl)…and then we pile in material daily/weekly until opening day of the new NFL season.

If you were not a part of the Dynasty Offseason program last year, I will have more details on it on my playoff game recaps in 2020 and some additional explanation on Best Ball/MFL leagues, how to get started in them, how they work, etc. – if you’re not doing Best Ball/MFLs…you are missing out.
