2019 NFL Season Previews

Updated 6/18/19

 

These season previews will be posted throughout the summer and provide a foundation for my season picks (60% against the spread in 2018).

These previews will be very similar to past year’s previews with a couple exceptions.

Interior and edge defenders will be graded separately rather than a total defensive line grade. In the past, I’ve graded 3-4 edge defenders as part of linebackers and 4-3 edge defenders as part of the defensive line. Now edge defenders in both schemes are graded as their own unit, separate from off ball linebackers and interior defenders.

Scores for offense, defense, and the overall team will be included. Scores are based on a weighted average of individual player grades (certain positions valued higher than others, score out of 100). Win total projections will still be posted at the end of all previews after I simulate each team’s schedule, but team scores give an idea of how these teams rank relative to each other in the meantime.

Entire divisions will be posted at once, ranked by team score. Approximate completion dates are included for unfinished divisions.
