REWIND: Our Robert Griffin III 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 Robert Griffin III. 

 

Once the Super Bowl is over, the football nation will turn its lonely eyes to free agency and trade talk (that will never happen). I suspect the #1 ‘where will he go’ trade talk player will be RG3…now that Johnny Manziel has played his way out of the NFL. 

You’ll see/hear a lot of rehab backup for Dallas, or maybe even Carolina. Fans of teams like the Jets, Bills, Rams will hope he might be a cheap savior who breaks out in a new environment. We have a pretty definitive answer on whether there is NFL, and thus Fantasy hope here in our report from last season. 

Here was our 2015 preseason call, and the logic behind it: (link) Robert Griffin III REWIND
