Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons will have a hard to repeating the amazing offensive attack they had in 2016 this upcoming season

Career Year Beware! by Houdini

Every year when the fantasy drafts come around there are players that get way over drafted because the owners that pick them expect them to produce the same or better results than they did last year, but these players are coming off a career year and you should expect the opposite. These happen year after year, and the results are almost always the same, so if you are thinking of drafting one of these players, beware of the career year!!!

 


MATT RYAN

 

Matt Ryan is the poster child for Career Year Beware in 2017. Ryan is coming off career highs in yards (4,944), touchdowns (38) and a career low in interceptions (7). Matty Ice has been pretty consistent with six years in a row with more than 4,000 passing yards, but a look inside the numbers will tell you to beware of counting on a repeat. The Falcons have a dynamic offense with weapons all over the field, and that translated into a career high of 17 pass plays for 40 or more yards in 2016. He also completed seven pass plays of 50 or more yards with three of them going for touchdowns (64,75 & 76 yards). Ryan also had 11 touchdowns in 2016 that went for 30 or more yards. Let’s put this into context with his numbers from the year before. In 2015 Ryan only had nine plays of 40 or more yards compared to the 17 he threw in 2016. In fact Matt threw for a total of 17 plays over 40 or more yards in 2014 and 2015 combined. His seven plays of 50 or more yards is one more than he completed in 2014 and 2015 combined. His 11 touchdowns of 30 or more yards in 2016 were two more than he threw in 2014 and 2015 combined. There is no doubt that the Falcons have an amazing offense and Ryan is going to put up good numbers this year, but to think that he is going to repeat something that he has not previously done in his nine years in the league, is foolish. Ryan is being drafted much higher than last year when he was an afterthought, but beware because you are playing with fire if you think a repeat or increase on 2016 numbers is going to happen.

 


KIRK COUSINS

 

Captain Kirk is coming off a career high in passing yards (4,917) in his second season under the helm for the Washington Redskins. You may be thinking that it is a little early in Cousins career to beware, but there are many reasons you should beware of drafting the Captain in 2017. In 2016 Kirk had 13 plays of 40 or more yards, but eight of those plays came from DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, both of whom are not on the team in 2017. He also had seven plays of 50 or more yards, four of which went for touchdowns, three of which came from DeSean Jackson. In 2015 Kirk only had eight plays of 50 or more yards, half of which came from DJax. He also only had five touchdowns of 30 or more yards compared to the eight he threw in 2016. Cousins has a lot of upside for his career, but he has so many new weapons in the offense in 2017 that there is going to be a regression from the comfort level he had with Garcon and Jackson over the last two seasons. Captain Kirk is going to find that he is the only officer left on the ship, and if you draft him high you will both be on the bridge of ship that is caught in a gravitational pull and going down.

 

 

LEGARRETTE BLOUNT

 

Blount is coming off a career year in yards (1,161) and touchdowns (18). This is only the second time in his seven-year career that he has topped 1,000 yards, the last time coming in his rookie season. LaGarrette had 3 runs of 40 or more yards in 2016 (two that went for touchdowns), compared to no runs of 40 or more yards in 2015. Blount also had seven runs of 20 or more yards last season, compared to four 20-yard runs in 2015. LG was able to do most of his damage because of the offense that he was in with the Patriots. This year he will be playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, which has a lot of ground to catch up on the Patriots in terms of effective offense. Blount is going to see a major decrease in the number of touchdowns scored, as his previous career high was 11 fewer than he scored in 2016. LaGarrette is also a one-dimensional running back, and you are betting on fools’ gold if you are expecting the same return on investment in 2017. 

 


LATAVIUS MURRAY

 

Putting Murray on this list may be stretch, but there is enough reason to beware that he makes this list. Latavius is coming off a career high in touchdowns (12), which doubled his previous career high. Murray was not very dynamic in 2016, only rushing for 788 yards. He only had one run for 40 or more yards in 2016, and just five runs of 20 or more yards. In 2015 he rushed for 1,066 yards, but only had two runs of 40 or more yards, and nine runs of 20 or more yards. This year he is moving to Minnesota and joining a crowded backfield. The Vikings are not completely sold on Murray, which is why they drafted Dalvin Cook. Cook alone is a major reason to beware of Murray, but the fact is he is going to have a hard time getting anywhere close to the 12 touchdowns he scored last season, so beware.

 


T.Y. HILTON

 

Hilton is entering his sixth season, and he is coming off a career year with high marks in yards (1,448), receptions (91) and targets (155). T.Y. is a chunk receiver, as evidenced by his 14 pass receptions of 30 yards or more with four of them going for scores in 2016. That nearly doubled the production he had in 2015 with only nine plays of 30 or more yards with just two of them going for touchdowns. The Colts have a strong offense and Hilton is the main catalyst in the passing game, which should continue, but to expect a repeat of 2016 is not wise. In 2016 he averaged 20 yards more per game than he did in 2016, a major jump that is sure to see a regression in 2017. Hilton has also never been a major redzone target, which prevents him from being a double-digit touchdown scorer (career high 7 TDs) and will not allow him to be able to overcome the expected decrease in receiving yards. Hilton is one of my favorite players, but you should beware of over drafting him in 2017.

 


DAVANTE ADAMS

 

Adams had a breakout year in 2016 with career highs in yards (997), receptions (75), targets (121) and touchdowns (12). The final stat of 12 touchdowns is the one that makes Adams a major player to beware in 2017. Touchdowns are the hardest thing to repeat, even on an offense like the Packers. Adams was not a major big play threat with only seven receptions of 30 or more yards and two of 50 or more yards, only two of which went for scores. The Packers are bringing in another threat in the passing game in Martellus Bennett, who is going to take target share away from Adams, especially in the redzone. This makes Adams, while a player on the rise, a player to beware of in 2017.

 


KYLE RUDOLPH

 

Rudolph is second in line as the poster child for Career Year Beware in 2017, as he is coming off his best season in six years in the league. Kyle had career highs in yards (840), receptions (83), and targets (132). Those career marks are major increases from his previous levels. In 2017 Rudolph had 345 more yards, 30 more receptions and 39 more targets than his previous career highs. He had 11 plays of 20 or more yards in 2016 compared to just four such plays in 2015. Kyle had never had a season with more than 500 receiving yards prior to 2016, and expecting him to maintain or increase his production is a major stretch. The Vikings are not a dynamic offense and still mainly relies on the running game, especially in the redzone. If Rudolph were on a different team a better argument could be made against this prediction, but he doesn’t and you should beware.

 


DELANIE WALKER

 

Walker has been on a high for the last three seasons with more 800 receiving yards, 100 targets and has 17 of his career 31 touchdowns over that time frame. Last season he had a career high with seven touchdowns scored. Over the past two seasons Delanie has had 13 receptions for 20 or more yards and two for 40 or more yards with two touchdowns each season. The problem for Walker first and foremost is his age (33), and young up and coming receivers surround that him. Marcus Mariota has relied on Walker the last two seasons, but as his comfort level increases he is going to spread the ball around even more in 2017. Walker has been a stud tight end over the past three seasons, but you better beware over drafting him in 2017.
