2020 Offseason Moves ‘Tournament’ (NFC Final Four 'Loser's Bracket')

 

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 FINAL FOUR ‘Loser’s Bracket’


NFC FINAL FOUR ‘Loser’s Bracket’

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

 

1) NFC WEST: L.A. RAMS

Key adds: A’Shawn Robinson, Leonard Floyd, #57 pick

Key losses: Dante Fowler, Cory Littleton, Greg Zuerlein, Todd Gurley, Clay Matthews, Nickell Robey-Coleman, Brandin Cooks

Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE

Commentary: Losing Littleton and Zuerlein is big. Fowler and Gurley gone made sense, but still hurts. Their answer…sign overrated/bust D-Lineman to silly deals! My…how fast the Rams have fallen out of favor. The late loss of Cooks for a late 2nd-round pick…not likely a boost to 2020 operations. Good for down the road, though.

 

2) NFC EAST: 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.

 

3) NFC SOUTH: ATLANTA FALCONS

Key adds: Dante Fowler, Todd Gurley

Key losses: Austin Hooper, Desmond Trufant, Wes Schweitzer, Vic Beasley, Adrian Clayborn, De’Vondre Campbell, Devonta Freeman

Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE

Commentary: The Falcons lost several long-time, key members of the team and added two Rams troublemakers…not good.

 

4) NFC NORTH: CHICAGO BEARS

Key adds: Nick Foles, Jimmy Graham, Artie Burns, Kevin Pierre-Louis, Robert Quinn

Key losses: Nick Kwiatkoski, Leonard Floyd, Nick Williams, HaHa Clinton-Dix, Pick #140

Net pos./neg./neutral: NEGATIVE

Commentary: A true contender for worst offseason of 2020. Saved somewhat by Nick Foles as an add but adding Jimmy Graham and Artie Burns are two of the worst personnel moves of 2020. Robert Quinn could be a sneaky good grab here too.

 

 

 -- I thought the Bears were gonna run away with this at first, but then they added Robert Quinn and then made the Nick Foles trade later in the process – it helps keep them out of the running for the single ‘worst’ of the offseason.

The Falcons definitely got uprooted, but if Gurley has anything left and Fowler provides more pass rush threat than failed-Beasley ever did…they might come out of this neutral.

I went back-and-forth between Dallas and the Rams for the ‘worst’ of the NFC. I dropped Dallas to #2 because they lost some heart-and-soul players, but they had guys in place already to backfill…so, Dallas by virtue of drafting so well the past few years…they could afford to clean some house a bit. Their moves made some sense in context of the big picture of their roster.

But what the Rams did…not only did they lose key players, they signed two of the worst, most overrated players in free agency. The Rams are in a total freefall.

And if it came down to it, I was going to choose L.A. anyway. Why? Because the Rams go on in this tournament to the finals, to the Super Bowl of the offseason losers…to face…the New England Patriots. Two years after these two teams were in the real Super Bowl, here they are falling apart personnel-wise. I think Belichick will be totally fine house cleaning and rebuilding…Les Snead, not so much (however…the beaches are closed in California, so maybe he’s actually looking at tape and data now).

Rams v. Pats 2.0…this time for ‘worst’ offseason of 2020 (so far).

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.
