Mark Helfrich:
The Sleeper NFL Coaching Hire Fantasy Owners NEED to Know 


Breaking Down the Bears Attack:
What does Mark Helfrich bring to the table?

The Fantasy Fullback Dive plows into Season 3 like an absolute sledgehammer, welcoming on the Godfather of Oregon Football: Charles FIscher

A fantasy sheep may ask, "Why would you invite a college analyst to the show, even if a mastermind?"

But a true wolf knows that exact answer: Mark Helfrich.

The former Oregon HC has joined Matt Nagy as the Bears Offensive Coordinator, forming one of the most intriguing coaching duos of 2018. Understanding just how much Helfrich brings to the table is crucial.

Though Nagy will be calling plays, Helfrich and his bright, innovative mind weren't brought in without reason. The college coach is regarded as a QB Guru -- one Marcus Mariota attributes everything to (according to Fischer). The new OC will undoubtedly be bringing plenty of Spread and Zone Concepts into Nagy's West Coast attack. 

Thus, we bring in Fischer, who might know more about Helfrich and the Oregon Scheme than anyone who hasn't coached there (and maybe them too).  

In arguably our most nitty gritty, "X's and O's" Interview of all time, Fischer digs in deep to every facet of Helfrich's attack. In the process, Fischer lays down the foundation, and The Wolf and Truth bring the fantasy hammer.
