2020 Offseason Moves ‘Tournament’ (NFC East)
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 NFC East
1) PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Key adds: Darius Slay, Jatavis Brown, Javon Hargrave, Nickell Robey-Coleman
Key losses: Pick #85, Pick #166, Malcolm Jenkins, Hala Vaitai, Jordan Howard, Ronald Darby, Nelson Agholor
Net pos./neg./neutral: POSITIVE
Commentary: I really didn’t quite grasp how well the Eagles did (so far) in the offseason. I mean, when you look at the names all listed out like this it is really impressive – all from an organization I thought was shooting itself in the foot, personnel-wise, for the past few years. They ‘lost’ two top personnel people to be GMs of CLE and NYJ…and suddenly they know what they’re doing? Good luck to the Jets and Browns…if the Eagles kill it in the 2020 NFL Draft it confirms the prior years of issues were, in part, due to the personnel people who recently got ‘stolen’ from them (which would be so typical of bad NFL organizations like CLE and NYJ).
It’s not just that the names Philly added are really good/smart, but that they dumped/let walk all the right people as well. Super smart work in the 2020 offseason here. Arguably, the best in the NFL. We’ll see.
2) NEW YORK GIANTS
Key adds: Blake Martinez, James Bradberry, Dion Lewis, Kyler Fackrell, Levine Toilolo
Key losses: Alec Ogletree, Kareem Martin, Eli Manning
Net pos./neg./neutral: POSITIVE
Commentary: Solid start for the new administration, but not enough to get serious about them competing for the NFC East ahead of Philly-Dallas yet. All the personnel losses were fine, and the two GB guys make it a nice influx – Martinez and Fackrell are smart gets.
3) WASHINGTON REDSKINS
Key adds: Sean Davis, Kendall Fuller, Wes Schweitzer, J.D. McKissic, Kevin Pierre-Louis, Thomas Davis Ronald Darby, Cody Latimer, Peyton Barber, Kyle Allen, Logan Thomas
Key losses: Quinton Dunbar, Jordan Reed, Ereck Flowers, Josh Norman, Chris Thompson
Net pos./neg./neutral: NEUTRAL
Commentary: A lot of names coming and going, but I don’t see Washington getting better here. Just filling the roster. Quinton Dunbar is a big loss to just give away.
4) DALLAS COWBOYS
Key adds: Greg Zuerlein, Dontari Poe, HaHa Clinton-Dix, Gerald McCoy, Aldon Smith
Key losses: Travis Frederick (ret.), Byron Jones, Randall Cobb, Jeff Heath, Maliek Collins, Jason Witten, Robert Quinn
Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE
Commentary: Massive downgrade for Dallas here. If Dallas and Philly were kinda ‘even’ as top NFC East forces going into this offseason, then the Eagles punched it past the Cowboys with the offseason moves so far. It looks like Dallas/Jerry is never going to get it. They had their window a couple years ago, now they have a lot of money in Zeke and Amari. Still a good team, but not taking a step forward with this offseason so far.
-- The Eagles’ moves in total caught me by surprise…I’m stoked if I’m a Philly fan. They move onto our NFC Final Four. If I’m a Dallas fan…I’m not too panicked, but I’m not thrilled about this offseason. They move on to the losers bracket 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.
