Coaching Carousel (Part 2)

The 2018 Fantasy Football Coaching Carousel (Part 2):

As explored last week, 12 new HC’s or OC’s calling plays in 2018.  As Todd Gurley‘s additional 881 yards and 13 TDs on just 22 more touches under Sean McVay ​​​​show, proper usage can be all the difference in fantasy. Most often, this boils down to the coaching scheme.

Unfortunately, very few — if any — fantasy football sites analyze these coaching changes, at least not with the depth of analysis they deserve.

That is… until now.

The Roto Street Journal is incredibly proud to present the first-ever (FREE) Fantasy Football Coaching Carousel: The Most Comprehensive Guide to 2018’s New Offenses.

While the guide features over 100 pages of Schematics, OTA Breakdowns, Past Player Production and Trends, and Future Predictions and Team Previews, we can only fit just a little taste into the FFBDPod; a tasty little appetizer before the main course guide.

In Part 1, we broke down the four new play-calling HC’s (Matt Nagy, Pat Shurmur, Jon Gruden and Frank Reich) plus new Cleveland OC Todd Haley.  For Part 2, we dive into the remaining new OCs: John DeFilippo, Norv Turner, Mike McCoy, and Matt LaFleur. 

To reign The Wolf in, The Truth gives him 2 total minutes per coach: 1 minute to break down their scheme and philosophies, and 1 minute to pick the one player who’ll be most impacted in 2018. This segment features can’t miss takes on all the new schemes, plus how Kyle Rudolph, Cam Newton, Larry Fitzgerald, and the Titans RBs (Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry) all stand to benefit the most on their respective teams.

Also – with OTAs wrapped up, The Wolf and Truth sift through the five most important notes we haven’t yet discussed. In the process, we break down Robert Turbin‘s four-game suspension (and what it means for Marlon Mack), how Blake Bortles is progressing in Nathaniel Hackett‘s offense in Year Two, how his former target Allen Hurns is primed for a No.1 WR role, how Tyrod Taylor‘sgaining leash as a starter which makes him an insane value, and notes that justify Deshaun Watson is our No.1 Ranked QB.

If you haven’t paid any attention to the new hires, Part 1 and Part 2 are must listens, and our Coaching Carousel Guide is an actual Godsend. Make sure to tune in to one of our best mini-series yet, and let us know your thoughts below!

  • How Tyrod Taylor has separated himself from Baker Mayfield and what his value will be
