    Tevin Coleman shenanigans

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 121: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion runs down the first-5 rookie running backs drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft.  


    Jeff Fisher is falling apart. 


    Rob Havenstein and Greg Robinson will help Todd Gurley become the best running back from the 2015 Draft. 


    Melvin Gordon enthusiasts love the San Diego landing spot but wish the Chargers invested more in their offensive line. 


    T.J. Yeldon value could crater after only two bad weeks, becuase fantasy gamers don't give between-the-tackles grinders leeway when they struggle.


    The presence of Joique Bell will allow Ameer Abdullah to be deliberately ramped up and comfortably eased into a lead back role.


    Tevin Coleman landing on a prolific Atlanta offense is close to best case scenario. 


    Breaking down the running game "scheme fit" fallacy.


    Chip Kelly is on record explaining that gap blocking and zone blocking are not mutually exclusive.

    Running back commodity fallacy

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 120: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion is surprised to receive support from an ally in the fight against the running-backs-are-commodities narrative-war of our time.


    It's en vogue right now to marginalize the value of the running back position and describe them as interchangeable and expendable commodities. 


    Dallas and Philadelphia have vastly different running back valuation philosophies.


    Just because two running backs scored the same number of fantasy points does not imply they are interchangeable. 


    In 2008, Jamaal Charles, Ray Rice, Chris Johnson, and Matt Forte were drafted after Rahshard Mendenhall, Felix Jones, Johnathan Stewart and Darren McFadden. 


    Most first-round bust running backs were injured early in their careers.


    Early round running backs are generally highly quality players than late-round and undrafted running backs with much higher success rates and are not interchangeable.


    Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount were uniquely productive role players and intergral parts of New England's Super Bowl victory.

    Dorial Green-Beckham and the Randy Moss corollary

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 120: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion gets trolled by Evan Silva, buzzard pharaoh. 


    Tevin Coleman beats defenders by exploding past them with vision yards, not by juking them out in the backfield.


    NFL teams are legitimately worried about Jay Ajayi's knee's long-term stability but dynasty league fantasy analysits are undaunted. 


    The incoming rookie running back class is both top-heavy and incredibly deep in quality, providing great RB value late in dynasty rookie drafts.


    The incoming rookie RB class is so good historically that the roles of 50-plus-percent of the currently projected starting NFL incumbents are in doubt. 


    Don't trade for Allen Robinson prior to the 2015 NFL Draft.


    Drafting Dorial Green-Beckham in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft is the equivalent of drafting Randy Moss at pick No. 21 in the 1998 NFL Draft.


    Work ethic and a love of football matters when evaluating NFL prospects. 


    The running backs position is more physically and mentally taxing than any other position in team sports.


    The presence of D'haquille Williams was a big reason for the Sammie Coates' 2014 productivity decline.


    Chris Conley is more Robert Meachem than Donte Moncrief.


    Bud Sasser and Brandon LaFell are nearly identical. Bud Sasser is not comparable to Brandon Marshall.

    Jay Ajayi echo chamber

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 119: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion is buying Jameis Winston in redraft and dynasty fantasy football leagues.


    QB1 drought is coming and Winston, Mariota, Cardale Jones, and Connor Cook alone can't stop it.


    Touting Jameis Winston, Breshad Perriman and Tevin Coleman is an unintentionally strategic contrarian bell tower cave. 


    Recent 6-2 or taller NFL wide receivers with a 35+% dominator and sub-4.40 speed: 



    Calvin Johnson
    Julio Jones
    Stephen Hill
    Robert Meachem
    Kevin White
    Breshad Perriman


    Running backs w/ sub-4.50 speed who also ran for 2000 yards in college: 



    Barry Sanders
    Ladanian Tomlinson
    Marcus Allen
    Tony Dorsett
    Matt Forte
    Ray Rice
    Kevin Smith
    JJ Arrington
    Tevin Coleman


    Fantasy football is rife with diluted anti-hot take analysis.


    Lamenting the Bleacher Reporterizing of fantasy football article writing.


    Tevin Coleman delivers the jaw-dropping aesthetic majesty combined with tremendous on-field efficiency, yet Coleman also inspires inordinate stat parsing and subjective style criticism.


    Jay Ajayi is a cross between Andre Williams & Terrance West. Ajayi is a compiler with a notoriously bad knee whose college coaches proceeded to run into the ground. 


    The Mountain Whack conference offers cupcake opponents like Utah State and Wyoming.


    Week of the NFL Draft: the worst week of football analysis.

    Characterizing Jameis Winston's character

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast - Depth Perspective Episode 118: is anyone capable of judging another person's character?


    Accurately measuring a person's character is an impossible task and would require a privacy violation to even attempt. 


    "Injury prone" and "character risk" are two prime examples of the generic, all-encompassing sports labeling system. 


    Why talking about players in a fantasy football context is different than a real life context. 


    Not factoring character concerns into a prospect evaluation could actually be a competitive advantage for an NFL team.

    Truman Show: starring Tevin Coleman and Jameis Winston

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 117: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion is terrified to learn that Jameis Winston barely meets Benjamin Allbright's holy QB throw velocity MPH threshold. 


    Detangling the no-lose-infallibility of the Skip Bayless rhetorical formula.


    The inherent randomness of the interception explains how Michael Vick can never exceed six college interceptions while Drew Brees throws 20. 


    Humbling the swaggering Jameis Winston with bad fantasy analysis. 


    Click monsters claim Jameis Winston has Jeff George's arm, JaMarcus Russell's work ethic, and Jay Cutler's decision making.


    Statistical trickery always requires a good preface. Winston could be an amazingly prolific fantasy quarterback, but....


    Feeling punked with every article trashing Tevin Coleman and Jameis Winston.


    Draft Jameis Winston, because a great QB1 shortage is coming. 


    Jameis Winston probably won't be as good as Teddy Bridgewater, even if he is the next Dan Marino.

    Intercepting Jameis Winston

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 117: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion believes Marcus Mariota is more similar to Dennis Dixon than Russell Wilson.


    Marcus Mariota's archetype is the Cam Newton/RG3/Kaepernick/Dennis Dixon/Johnny Manziel: running quarterbacks who predominantly ran spread or package concepts. 


    Mariota is tantalizing, but he's a highly nebulus prospect, a known unknown. 


    Ultimate Marcus Mariota frankencomp: head/brain and personality of Russell Wilson, arm of Alex Smith, the body of Dennis Dixon, and the legs of Colin Kaepernick.


    Jameis Winston's 18 interceptions in 2014 represents the singular stat that confirms all preconceived notions and negative bias about Jameis Winston.


    What does a JaMarcus Russell comp actually mean?


    Jay Cutler's 68.3 QBR compared to Jameis Winston's 89.4 QBR is the difference between collegiate mediocrity and collegiate excellence.


    Jamies Winston's propensity to throw it to linebackers in the flat is inexplicable and real problem. 


    College interception totals do not necessarily translate into NFL interceptions.


    According to Benjamin Allbright's proprietary Upside Meter, Jameis Winston has the least room to grow of any quarterback in this draft class. 


    Jameis Winston's 18 interceptions during his sophomore season do not encapsulate his ability, but they do remove Peyton Manning from his prospective range of outcomes.
