REWIND: Our Charles Johnson 2015 Preseason Report

— Our offseason ‘Rewind’ reports are where we look at an individual player’s previous season(s) of work–analyzing and researching it for clues on whether it was a ‘blip’ performance, or signs of future greatness…or signs of a mega-bust approaching. We try to do two per week in the offseason. —

Starting in February, we will be starting up our very popular feature started in 2014–our ‘Rewind’ scouting studies. FFM ‘Rewind’ reports are where we isolate on a particular player from the prior season, and see if we can detect whether they are about to take-off to a new level, or are a hoax that needs to be avoided in upcoming redrafts or sold off in Dynasty leagues. They are players selected from either an open FFM reader vote, or who I see that I am getting the most questions about in the particular offseason–like C.J. Anderson, Josh Hill, Robert Griffin, Zach Ertz, etc. in 2014. We even did David Johnson and Odell Beckham…and they were beautiful.

Most everyone of them were crystal balls that were right on the money for the following season. There were 1-2 that didn’t work out so brilliantly, but not too soul-crushing. 

Last season, we completed about 20 full reports. This season, I hope to push it as high as 50–with more defensive/IDP reports included (I may be shooting for the moon there, they are very intensive to watch every play of a particular player, but a boy can dream big).

In preparation for the new batch of ‘Rewind’ reports to come, I wanted to republish some of the reports from 2014 to celebrate my genius, or see what we can learn from where we were wrong. Republishing them with a quick update…

===========================================

Today’s republished ‘Rewind’ report from 2015 will be our report on Charles Johnson…the fact that you had to stop for a moment to recall if he played this past season is a riot. This time last year, he was hot as a pistol. 

This was part of my Cordarrelle Patterson repayment plan…for all those who I led astray on CP in 2014. I would also note on CP…beware, my time will come. I will be proven right, and the world will rejoice…or at least I will.  

It’s hard to read this one in the proper context, but a year ago…I was pretty much alone here. Hopefully, you cashed out nicely ahead of the crash.
