From The Gut: NFC

Sigmund Bloom runs down what's on his mind and in his gut about NFC teams this year.

There are a lotta ins and outs, a lotta what-have-you's in our heads about fantasy football right now, it is difficult to keep track of it all. I've tried to capture what is slanting through my gourd and more importantly being informed my gut or intuition - which is not mysterious but a hyperprocessing of all of the data and experience we bring to bear when making a decision - by recording a stream of consciousness of salient takeaways on a team-by-team basis. Hope it helps you organize your thoughts as you head into drafts.

The NFC East


Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant could get off to a hot start with Ezekiel Elliott out for six games, assuming his suspension holds up on appeal. That hot start could also be delayed by an opening 1-2 combination of the Giants and Broncos. The Cowboys offense is also adjusting to some changes on the line. They could be a buy low by Week 3... Taking Elliott in the second takes courage, but if you can scuffle and get to 3-4 by the time he returns, you will be set up very well with a second Top 5 quality player for the stretch run and playoffs. Plenty of teams make the playoffs when one of their early picks contributes very little for long stretches of the season. Bet on yourself to be a good enough fantasy GM to make taking Elliott work for you.
