So the last two weeks Skip has focused on a couple of rookies he likes heading in to the 2021-22 season.
Which can be really hard to predict and/or project.
Purely for the obvious reason that we’ve never seen them compete in a meaningful game in the NFL…. ever.
However over the next few week I’ll focus on a few plays I’m a little more confident on.
The AFC seems a little more straight forward then the NFC, so I’ll bracket up my wagers by conferences.
So firstly the AFC.
East – Bills
Genuine Super Bowl contender who have been built efficiently around MVP contender Josh Allen the past few years.
Main threat Dolphins. Would surpass Buffalo if they could pull off a Watson trade and he somehow plays a part this year.
West – Chiefs
No brainer. Best team in the league with revamped O-Line that struggled at the worst time last year.
They were embarrassed in the super bowl and I’m expecting big bounce back. No serious contender.
South – Titans
The Titans are going to bully their division with not only Derrick Henry, but the addition of Julio Jones.
Main threat Colts. If Wentz was healthy probably would have leaned more towards them because I love their roster top to bottom.
North – Browns
My first non favourite as Ravens have the slight edge and deservedly so.
Their regular season record speaks for itself and are definitely the biggest threat.
I just feel like Browns can take the next step of the roster can stay healthy. With so many injury players including big names like OBJ & Clowney.
Ladbrokes multi – $9.58
Secondly the NFC
East – Washington Football Team
This division is anyone’s guess but I’m happy to have a play on Washington at the play just like I suggested Davis for my defensive rookie of the year.
I feel like their defence will feast on the offences in the NFC East.
Cowboys biggest threat with Dak as comeback player of the year if he can return to where he was before he was injured last year. Their weapons are legit.
West – 49ers
Easily the hardest division of them all to pick. However I’m backing the team that made the Super Bowl two years ago before succumbing to a heap of injuries last year to key members. Specifically the D-Line.
Biggest threat? You could legit make a case for any of the other teams.
South – Buccaneers
My other lock. Last years Super Bowl winner led by the goat and they’re running it back with the same crew. Throw in Saints got weaker with the retirement of Brees. No serious contender.
North – Packers
My Green Bay Packers have set it up for a last dance season. With all the noise around what Rodgers would do now a thing of the past.
The packers have mostly dominated this division for a minute now other than a few down seasons.
Biggest threat Bears. Justin Fields has really surprised me and their defence has always been a problem.
If Fields can invigorate the weapons on the team they could cause some dramas for not only the North but NFC.
Ladbrokes Multi – $24.72
My two favourite plays of one from each conference is the Cleveland Browns in to Washington Football Team @ $9.0.
