    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.

    Lucas Matthysse vs Ruslan Provodnikov, Fonfara-Chavez Recaps

    in Sports

    Inside of the ring, objectively, it doesn't get a whole lot better than last weekend. Between Matthysse-Provodnikov and Terence Crawford vs Thomas Dulorme on HBO and Andrzej Fonfara vs Julio Cesar Chavez on Showtime, there was mayhem, dirty tactics, drama, classy boxing, blood and, not to be overlooked, tremendous heart shown. Unfortunately so much of the great stuff was overshadowed by an ill-advised social media choice from Sergey Kovalev. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor cover it all, from top to bottom -- including this coming weekend's Wladimir Klitschko vs Bryant Jennings...whatever it is. Thanks for tuning in!

    Provodnikov-Matthysse, Crawford-Dulorme, Chavez Jr.-FonFara Review

    in Sports

    In the most highly anticipated fight thus far in 2015, Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov squared off in an incredibly gutsy fight live from Tunring Stone in Verona, New York. 


    The fight started off in Matthysse’s favor, although the first round could be considered a feel out by their standards, even though it had plenty of action compared to the average opening round. Matthysse kept Provodnikov in check and kept getting loser and looser as the round went on.HBO card was one of the most anticipated in quite some time, but the evening’s co-feature was deserving of some attention, too, although it was lost a bit on the main event. In the televised co-feature, Omaha’s favorite boxer, Terrance “Bud” Crawford, stepped up to junior welterweight for the first time and took on Thomas Dulorme.


    The perception was that Crawford was the high ranked fighter worth the world-class tag, while Dulorme was the highly skilled fighter that would never live up to his original aspirations. Crawford, who struggled to make weight in his last 135lb title defense, stayed patient early and allowed Dulorme to dictate based on output.Over on ShowTime tonight, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. headlined in a fight against Andrzej Fonfara live from the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It was Chavez’s first fight back from a year long layoff.


    Fonfara looked really god from the opening bell, while Chavez Jr. spent more time complaining than fighting. Fonfara stayed planted and threw meaningful shots, putting together impressive combos. Chavez wasn’t very methodical with his offense, but instead he was hoping that he could overwhelm Fonfara at some point.
