SummerSlam 2019 Recap!

This week on…  MIKE on the MIC :

 

SummerSlam 2019!

 

Despite a lackluster build up to the show and a match card that left some scratching their heads, all in all SummerSlam turned out to be a really good PPV. The matches were action packed and kept the fans on the edge of their seats throughout the show. There were also a lot of “THIS IS AWESOME” and “ HOLY S@!T” chants during the show – something not heard a lot nowadays.

Fans saw the return of “The Rated R Superstar” Edge on the kickoff show, as he hit the ring, cutting off Elias’ performance. No words were spoken between the two; only a thunderous spear delivered by Edge to the gut of Elias. The crowd went absolutely nuts and a huge Edge chant broke out. This was one of the coolest moments of the night. Many fans, myself included, never thought we’d get to see Edge hit the spear again due to his neck and shoulder injuries (the very same that led to his in ring retirement). That had to have been an awesome moment for Edge himself. 

 

Another hometown Canadian hero made her return as well, the one and only Trish Stratus. She put on one hell of a match with Charlotte. In spite of her age and not having competed in several years, Trish definitely held her own and looked as good as ever. Unfortunately, Trish was not able to leave the match victorious, but she did a great job of putting Charlotte over. The proverbial “torch” has thus been passed.

 

The absolute coolest moment of the night was the in-ringdebut of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. I have been waiting to see how the build with his character and the feud with Finn Balor was going to culminate. The Fiend persona is genius and ridiculously over with the fans right now. Bray’s entrance to the ring for the match was wicked cool, nothing short of electric. The music, the lighting, and Bray Wyatt’s face as the lantern was phenomenal; perfect for his new persona. He and Finn put on a much longer match than expected, but it was a great match. The mandible claw as his new finisher completes the look and style of the new persona, making him look very strong. With Finn taking some rumored time off following the PPV, it appears that the feud is over for now. Who will be the next target of The Fiend?

CNN Debate Night 1: A Brief Review

debate2.jpg

 

By:  Justin Holden

  • Centrist (corporate) Democrats go on the offensive against the higher polling progressive candidates, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
  • Governor Steve Bullock has his first debate appearance of the year; remains irrelevant.
  • Marianne Williamson stands out with her detailed answer on slavery reparations, emphasis for getting special interest money out of politics, and a call to focus on the cause of problems rather than symptoms.
  • Bernie Sanders remains on message, but goes a step further this time by calling out moderator Jake Tapper for asking a “Republican talking point” debate question.
  • Beto O’Rourke avoids confrontation, again, with the other candidates.  The anticipation of a showdown with Mayor Pete Buttigieg does not come to fruition.
  • John Delaney succeeds in gaining significant air time by initiating heated policy debates with Sanders and Warren.
  • John Hickenlooper, Amy Klobuchar, and Tim Ryan have forgettable performances.

 

It came down to moderates versus progressives on night one of the CNN Democratic Presidential Primary Debates.  John Delaney came out swinging right out of the gate, referencing Warren and Sanders in his opening statement.  Other moderate candidates, particularly Hickenlooper, Bullock, and Ryan, were also quite vocal in their opposition to progressive policies during this debate.

The first debate topic was healthcare.  You had Medicare for all (left-wing policy), public option (center-right policy), and some convoluted policies that fell somewhere in between that spectrum.  Over and over again we heard about the concept of millions of Americans being thrown off their private insurance plans and forced onto Medicare for all.  Oh the agony!  Somehow, in 2019, it’s as if politicians and the talking heads on mainstream media alike haven’t woken up to the fact that the United States is the only major country on Earth left to not guarantee healthcare to it’s citizens as a right.

Another lengthy section of the debate focused on immigration.  Several candidates supported decriminalization of crossing the border while others remained against such a policy.  There was also disagreement among the candidates as to whether or not undocumented immigrants should be guaranteed healthcare.

Williamson, Sanders, and Warren all did themselves a favor in this debate and will likely see a boost to their poll numbers in the aftermath.  Delaney, the most vocal attack dog against progressive candidates in this debate, may see a small boost in support from conservative/centrist Democrats, but his poll numbers likely won’t show significant change due to the large volume of moderate candidates in the race and with Joe Biden still having the conservative/centrist lane on lock down.

You could make a case for several candidates receiving the “biggest loser” award, but I’ll go ahead and give it to Beto O’Rourke.  Beto is not articulating his policy positions well enough and even worse, he’s failing to effectively debate policy against other candidates.  Beto’s non-confrontational approach isn’t working for him.  Until Beto goes on the offensive and shows some real passion behind his policy positions, he’ll continue to fail in raising his post-debate poll numbers.

Will Dalvin Cook Finally Put it Together in the 2019-2020 NFL Season?

By:  Justin Holden

Dalvin Cook missed 12 games in his rookie season (2017-2018) due to a season ending ACL injury, which required reconstructive surgery.  Cook missed 5 games last season (2018-2019) due to a nagging hamstring strain injury.  So yeah, his injury history is looking like a red flag at this point in his career.  Cook also shows a lack of agility and burst based off of his workout metrics, however, this has not appeared to significantly impact his on-field efficiency and production.

I led with the negatives right out of the gate, but let me explain why the arrow appears to be pointing up on Dalvin Cook for the 2019-2020 season.  We should all know by now that running back is one of the most interdependent positions in football.  Pair a replacement level running back (CJ Anderson, Thomas Rawls, etc.) with an all-pro quarterback on a high-octane NFL offense, and he will have the capability to produce like a superstar in the short-term.  By contrast, put an amazingly talented running back on an NFL offense that has poor offensive line play and a third string quarterback starting, and watch how much his productivity/efficiency drops.

Fortunately, Dalvin Cook’s situation this upcoming season is way better than the latter part of that analogy.  Kirk Cousins may not be a perennial pro-bowler at the quarterback position, but he’s much better than most analysts and football fans give him credit for.  Cousins is a reliable pocket passer throwing to two of the league’s best wide receiver talents in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.  Having that trio of players on the offense helps tremendously in not allowing opposing defenses to consistently stack the box against the Minnesota Vikings’ run game.

There are three other situational factors for Dalvin Cook that are noteworthy.  First, the Vikings addressed offensive line play by selecting Garrett Bradbury in the first round of the NFL Draft.  Second, Gary Kubiak was hired by the Vikings in the offseason as Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Advisor.  While I’m not big on coach-centric analysis, Kubiak does have an undeniably strong track record of having highly productive 1st string running backs on the teams that he has coached.  Across a sample size of 22 NFL seasons where Kubiak has been head coach or offensive coordinator, Kubiak’s lead running backs have averaged over 1100 rushing yards and 10.5 touchdowns per season.  Third, Dalvin Cook has absolutely no competition behind him on the depth chart.  The next man up is Alexander Mattison, a replacement level back that the Vikings unwisely selected in the third round of the NFL draft.  Mattison is slow (4.67 40-yard dash time) and was ridiculously inefficient with his carries (4.7 ypc, 14th percentile) in a weak conference in college.  The Alexander Mattison fan boys can come out of the woodwork to give me crap for this take, but I’m telling you right now that Mattison is not capable of siphoning off any meaningful snaps from Cook, barring a severe injury to Cook.

Cook has the prospect profile of an all-purpose NFL running back.  Cook’s college dominator score, college yards per carry, and college target share are all above the 80th percentile for running backs.  Looking at Cook’s production at the NFL level, he was #2 in juke rate per touch and #8 in evaded tackles per game last season.  Cook is also well above average in terms of speed and strength, as evidenced by his 40-yard dash and bench press workout metrics.

So with Cook being in an NFL offense that is on the rise, with an exciting prospect profile and virtually no competition for touches, sky truly is the limit for Cook this upcoming season.  All he needs to do is stay healthy.  Cook’s ADP has him going in the second round of fantasy football drafts right now.  Despite the perceived injury risk, I’d be comfortable drafting Cook in the first round of a redraft fantasy football league.  There are very few players in the NFL that are truly “injury prone”.  The public once thought that Julio Jones was injury prone, and then he strung together five straight seasons of missing no more than two games.  I have no crystal ball, and injuries can happen to any player at any time, but Cook is healthy right now and that is what matters.  Don’t be scared to trust him as your RB1 in fantasy this year.

Dissenting Opinions:

O.J. Howard – ADP 4, our ranking is 2.

I have O.J. Howard penciled in as a safe, elite option at the tight end position.  Not only was O.J. Howard one of the most efficient tight ends last year and one of the leaders in air yards at the position, but he’s a young, complete tight end that is just starting to enter his prime.  We must also consider that Tampa Bay will have a poor defense and poor run game once again, which could lead to the Tampa Bay offense leading the league in pass attempts.  O.J. Howard will have to compete for targets with the likes of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but at the end of the day, you can see from my projections that I’m predicting Howard to be a touchdown machine and make the most of every opportunity that comes his way.

Vance McDonald – ADP 10, our ranking is 5.

There is a significant difference between the value I see in Vance McDonald versus the value that the general mock drafting public sees in him.  While Vance McDonald has been pegged as a popular sleeper pick this season, I go further than that by straight up predicting him to finish as a top five tight end.  I don’t see McDonald scoring many touchdowns because of how run heavy this Pittsburgh Steelers offense will likely be in the red zone.  However, I do expect McDonald to smash with a healthy serving of catches and yards between the 20’s.  We must consider that Jesse James and Antonio Brown have both left town.  That’s a lot of vacated targets.  And I certainly don’t see them all going to Donte Moncrief or James Washington.

Chris Herndon – ADP 16, our ranking is 9.

It’s time to fade the public once again because they are straight up snoozin’ on Chris Herndon.  Herndon was a usable fantasy asset last year as a rookie, despite the fact he had limited targets to work with.  With Sam Darnold and the New York Jets offense on the rise, and Herndon now established as the unquestioned #1 tight end on the Jets’ depth chart, there’s no reason he shouldn’t exceed expectations this season.  Herndon is likely to be Sam Darnold’s favorite target in the passing game.  At this point, I believe that Herndon is significantly undervalued in both dynasty and seasonal leagues.

Jordan Reed – ADP 20, our ranking is 10.

Whether it be Duane Haskins or Case Keenum starting for the Washington Redskins this season, someone will have to be catching their passes.  News flash:  Jordan Reed is not dead yet.  There seems to be a narrative floating around that Jordan Reed is washed.  But the fact of the matter is, Reed is only 29 years old.  Tight ends can be productive far beyond age 29, especially if they have the athleticism that Reed does.  Reed has shown what he can do when healthy and in the starting lineup.  Is there risk in drafting Jordan Reed?  Absolutely.  His injury history remains a valid concern.  But if you’re in the final rounds of your draft and haven’t taken a tight end yet, it makes sense to take a flier on Reed.  He should produce admirably as long as he stays healthy, and that makes him a high upside selection when compared to other tight ends that are available in the final rounds of your fantasy draft.

Jack Doyle – ADP 22, our ranking is 12 / Eric Ebron – ADP 7, our ranking is 16

People must be thinking that Jack Doyle died after last season.  Granted, he only played 6 games due to injury, and finished last season with a poor stat line.  In Doyle’s absence, Eric Ebron smashed expectations en route to a 13 touchdown season.  In my view, both tight ends will be utilized this season in the Colts’ offense.  And given that Andrew Luck could have a career year, this makes Jack Doyle an incredible value where he is currently being selected in fantasy drafts.  Meanwhile, Ebron’s touchdown total from last year looks unrepeatable.  I expect Ebron to receive less targets this year and for his efficiency to drop.  Obviously, Ebron is still worth rostering in most leagues, but he should be going much later in drafts than he is.

Zach Ertz – ADP 2, our ranking is 4.

While I still expect Zach Ertz to have a top five finish this season, that is more of a testament to how low the bar is for tight end production compared to other positions.  I’m projecting Ertz to only score three touchdowns this season, as teammate Dallas Goedert is emerging as a clear red zone threat that is a lock to vulture touchdowns.  The Eagles will likely use their running backs in the red zone a lot as well.  Ertz remains a beast between the 20’s, but a projected reduction in catches and touchdowns compared to last season has him lower in our rankings for this season.

T.J. Hockenson – ADP 13, our ranking is 26.

Shiny new toy syndrome is on full display here with T.J. Hockenson’s ridiculous ADP.  I get that Hockenson is a complete tight end prospect and that the Lions’ offense will likely perform better this season.  But come on.  The dude is still a rookie.  Rookie tight ends almost never produce enough to be relied on as a fantasy starter, especially at the beginning of the season.  Drafting Hockenson as your starting tight end in a seasonal league is a mistake.  Let’s not forget that Jesse James is now in Detroit and will get his targets as well.  If you’re going to gamble on a rookie tight end this season, you’re better off taking a flier on Noah Fant, because he is a move tight end and Joe Flacco is notorious for targeting his tight ends.

Benjamin Watson – ADP 29, we have him unranked.

Benjamin Watson is on the New England Patriots now and will try to fill the shoes of retired Rob Gronkowski.  However, Watson will serve a four game suspension due to performance enhancing drug use.  With Austin Seferian-Jenkins cut from the team, Matt LaCosse is now the projected starter.  As of right now, LaCosse could be selected in the final round of your fantasy draft.  If you believe that Tom Brady won’t be able to avoid targeting his tight end heavily, then the recommendation is to draft LaCosse and pickup Watson off of waivers in the event that he eventually leapfrogs LaCosse on the depth chart.  The more likely scenario, however, is that Tom Brady heavily targets his slot receivers in all areas of the field.  Rookie wide receiver N’Keal Harry will likely emerge as a preferred target for Brady when passing into the end zone.

Key Differences – LSO Rankings vs Average Draft Position (ADP)

Baker Mayfield – Has an ADP of 5 but I have him ranked at 3.  With a season of NFL experience under his belt now, and an offense loaded with play makers such as the the newly acquired Odell Beckham Jr, I expect Mayfield to have a Pat Mahomes style breakout in his second season.  Ultimately I think AFC North defenses (minus the Bengals) will find a way to put a cap on Mayfield’s upside, preventing him from finishing as the #1 QB.  But he’s for damn sure going to get close.

Matthew Stafford – Has an ADP of 23 but I have him ranked at 11.  Stafford is coming off of a poor season where he threw just 21 passing touchdowns.  But ultimately, we are talking about a player who has finished as a top ten quarterback multiple times over the course of his career and more often than not returns value on his draft position.  Judging by Stafford’s current ADP, he will return value on his draft position in a big way.  Fundamentally, I do not see a huge difference between Stafford and similar pocket passers such as Ryan and Rivers.  This is why I have them all ranked similarly.  Expect a bounce back season for the Lions’ offense.

Mitch Trubisky – Has an ADP of 19 but I have him ranked at 13.  Trubisky missed two games last season and still finished as QB15.  Trubisky showed that he is capable of putting up monster games, like the one against Tampa Bay where he threw for six passing touchdowns.  Other than the loss of Jordan Howard, who underwhelmed last season, not much has changed for the Chicago Bears offense.  Barring injury, I see no reason why Trubisky’s production would take a dip compared to last season.

Ben Roethlisberger – Has an ADP of 13 but I have him ranked at 21.  Roethlisberger is coming off of a huge season, there’s no doubt about it.  Despite throwing double digit interceptions, his 31 passing TD’s and 5,000+ passing yards returned great value for his fantasy owners.  So why am I so low on Big Ben this year?  The loss of Antonio Brown will hurt.  And every indication right now is that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be going to a run heavy offense this season.  Roethlisberger is 37 and has taken a beating over his career due to his style of play.  He’s always an injury risk, and I’d be shocked if he didn’t retire by the end of this season.

Tom Brady – Has an ADP of 14 but I have him ranked at 17.  I believe I’m actually being generous with my Tom Brady ranking because I have seen other websites rank him as low as 20.  Let’s face it, Brady’s team won the super bowl last season, but they did it without him throwing a touchdown pass.  Tom Brady is the oldest starting quarterback in the league.  Rob Gronkowski retired in the offseason.  Brady did not finish as a top ten quarterback last season and I see no catalyst for him to do so this season.  While Brady seems determined to wage war with Father Time, I suggest you let someone else draft him, as he will probably go even higher than his current ADP as we get closer to the start of the season.

Kirk Cousins – Has an ADP of 12 but I have him ranked at 19.  As much as I’d like to move Cousins up in my rankings, I just can’t do it.  Yes, he has Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs at his disposal, and both are excellent receivers.  However, I just don’t see game script allowing Cousins to be a big time fantasy quarterback.  The Minnesota Vikings have a strong defense, and Dalvin Cook is going to get his carries.  The way this team is built, I just don’t see them airing it out enough to make Cousins a huge factor in fantasy.  Significant injuries on the Vikings defense or to Cook would provide a catalyst for Cousins to air it out more and finish with more fantasy points, but this is not something that I am betting on.

  

 

 

AEW Seals TV deal with TNT

This week on…  MIKE on the MIC :

 

AEW (ALL ELITE WRESTLING)..

 

It’s looking like WWE will have some stiff TV competition this coming fall. Earlier this week, the announcement that many had been waiting for had finally come – AEW is coming to TV!

AEW has inked a contract with TNT for weekly programming beginning this fall. It has not been advertised on which night(s) AEW programming will air, nor the time frame. This will be the first time wrestling will be broadcast on TNT since WCW Nitro ended in 2001. If AEW gets a prime time spot, it would be huge – especially if it ended up being on a Monday night. We may just be in for Monday Night Wars 2.0! AEW has signed some pretty well known names as of late, including: Cody Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes, Chris Jericho, PAC, Kenny Omega, Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, Joey Janela, “Hangman” Adam Page, the Young Bucks, and Billy Gunn. There are rumors of other former WWE and TNA talent heading to AEW as well. Anything can happen..

 

On another note, AEW’s first PPV – Double or Nothing, will be taking place on May 25th. Among the matches advertised are Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes (yes, his brother!), Hangman vs. PAC (aka Neville), and Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho. There are several other matches advertised, which could also be really good, but these 3 three matches alone are huge!

 

More to come regarding AEW on TV as soon as more details are released!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THIS WEEK.. STAY TUNED FOR MORE!!

Money In The Bank Preview

This week on…  MIKE on the MIC :

 

Previewing the Money in The Bank PPV..

 

Over the past few weeks, there has been quite the build up toward this PPV. This PPV boasts a pretty full match card and it looks to be quite solid.

Becky Lynch defending both of her belts against two different opponents is by far the most interesting set up and probably the biggest draw on the card. Just seeing the melee between Becky, Charlotte, and Lacey Evans on the last couple of episodes of RAW and Smackdown has been mind blowing! These 3 women are about to put on one hell of a show at MITB! I cannot wait to see who is left standing after the dust settles!

What’s next for The Miz and Shane-o Mac? Will we see The Miz get his revenge? These two put on arguably one of the best matches at ‘Mania. Shane is not as young as he used to be, but that doesn’t stop him from hitting high risk and high impact moves. I guarantee that we will see him leap off the top of the cage and crush The Miz!

Seth Rollins and AJ Styles will battle for the Universal Championship. This match also has a lot of potential. Both guys are big fan favorites and have a high energy, hard hitting style. Can the Phenomenal One outsmart the Architect?

Can Kofi Kingston keep his WWE Championship run going? Or has he met his match?  He faces a formidable opponent in the brutal Kevin Owens. When KO is on his game, he is unstoppable – he is ruthless, he is aggressive, and he is relentless. Kofi definitely has his work cut out for him.

These are just a few of the matches on the card. The Smackdown Tag Team titles and the US Championship are also on the line; will the titles change hands? Also, who will climb the ladders and become Mr. and Ms. Money in the Bank?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THIS WEEK.. STAY TUNED FOR MORE!!
