Best Rookie to draft for Fantasy Football Series: RB

Saquon Barkley – New York Giants

This should be a consensus for best rookie to draft at running back. At this point, Saquon might not only be the best rookie running back to draft, but he might be one of the best running backs. Here are a few reasons why:

Need

The Giants NEED a strong running game this year. With the return of OBJ, the passing game should be much improved. Using Barkley to run the ball will create a balance for the offense. In addition, it should take the pressure off of Eli Manning and the rest of the offense.

Opportunity

With Barkley’s skill set of being able to run and catch the ball very well, expect the Giants to use him in a number of ways. They will use him for screens, and in the passing game as a safety blanket.

Barring injury, fantasy owners can’t go wrong by selecting Saquon Barkley.

Best Rookie to draft for Fantasy Football Series: QB

Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills

In our opinion, the best rookie quarterback to draft for your fantasy team is Josh Allen. While there are other rookie quarterbacks who are arguably better, we believe that Allen will have the best stats by the end of the 2018 season. Here are a few reasons why:

1)Competition

Although there are more NFL ready players such as Baker Mayfield or Sam Donald, they will have a harder time getting on the field than Josh Allen. In Cleveland, Tyrod Taylor is the starter for at least the start of the season. If things go well, he may remain the starter for at least this season. In Donald’s case, he will have competition between Teddy Bridgewater and Josh Mccown. We believe that Mccown will start for at least the first few games this year. For Josh Rosen, the situation is similar with Sam Bradford there. For Allen, the only threat for the starting position is Aj McCarron, who probably won’t win the starting job.

2)Opportunity

With the least amount of competition between the 4, Allen should have the most opportunity to play. Since he has that opportunity, he will have more time and chances to rack up stats.

3)Game strategy

While the Bills will more than likely be a run first team, they will have to pass to keep defenses on their heels. In addition, teams will have to pass because defenses will force them to do so.

Ken Karl – SportsWatcherss Artist

Jim Edmonds with the Cardinals
Earlier this week, we interviewed one of the most talented sellers here at SportsWatcherss; An artist by the name of Ken Karl. We asked Ken a few questions about his passion for art, the best and worst part of being an entrepreneur, and more.
For more information, read the interview below:
Q: So how did your business get started?

A: I have always loved sports and I have always loved art. At an early age, I loved drawing my favorite athletes as I followed their careers. The more I drew them, the better I tried to draw them. I took the next natural step sharing them with other sports fans. I set up a website and began posting my work on Instagram and Facebook.

Q: How did you know this was your passion? 

A: I have always loved to draw and I have always loved sports. Once I started drawing, I was always looking for new things to draw that interested me. Each piece I created, challenged me to create even more interesting artwork. To this day, I’m ready to start the next piece before I finish the one I am currently working on.

Q: What is the best part/worse part of being an entrepreneur?

A: The best part is that you get to make your own decisions on what you create. If I’m honest, you also get to collect the compensation for what you create. All those late hours are easier to grind away at when you know you get the entire check at the completion of the project. The WORST part is knowing you have a great project but you can’t figure out how to market and get it to the masses.

Q: What made you choose this profession over any other job?

A:  Choosing this profession was easy for me. I love to draw, period. I enjoy each and every piece I create. I enjoy all the challenges, good and bad, each project creates for me. I also enjoy the look in each customers eyes the moment they first see the final project. It is a great feeling creating something for someone else that helps them remember a special time, event, or person. The satisfaction I receive from this is priceless.

Q: Where do you see your business in 5 years?

A: To be honest, I try not to look too far ahead. That may not be the best business strategy  I know, but that is how I have to do it. The most difficult and frustrating part of all this, is how difficult it is to market my work to the right people. I just keep trying to grind as an artist day in and day out. I keep trying to create better art on every project. I feel that if I can keep concentrating on the process of creating better art on each every piece, the rest will take care of itself… at least I hope.

Q: What advice do you give to others wanting to do what you do?
A:  I’m not sure I am the best person to ask about this. If I had to tell them anything, I would tell them to stay with it. Keep grinding and believe in themselves, especially on the days when you wonder if your career will ever take off. Stay focused on creating better art and keep pushing yourself to create better artwork, each and every project.

NBA Award Predictions

As the regular season winds down, it’s time to predict the NBA regular season awards. Here are our predictions:

Rookie of the Year: Ben Simmons

While the race has mainly been between Simmons and Mitchel (along with Jayson Tatum and Lauri Markkanen), we believe the late season push by Simmons has separated him from the pack. Averaging a triple-double during their 14-game win streak, Simmons has proven to be a great rookie and a future all-star.

Most Valuable Player: James Harden

The time has finally come for Harden to win this award. He’s finished top 5 in MVP voting the past 3 – 4 years, and it seems to have motivated him to only get better. This year, he’s been the best player on the best team record wise. Although LeBron James has been nothing short of spectacular, we believe this will be James’ time.

Defensive Player of the Year: Rudy Gobert

Rudy has done it before and can do it again. Being one of the biggest defensive forces in the league night in and night out, we see him winning this award again.

Sixth Man of the Year: Lou Williams

Williams has had one heck of a year. Averaging a career high 22 ppg and just over 5 assist while coming off the bench, this is a no brainer.

Most Improved Player of the Year: Victor Oladipo

No one saw this one coming before the start of the season. Oladipo improved his game tremendously. Hitting career highs in ppg, assist, and rebounds, Oladipo proved he can be the lead man on a winning team. In addition, he lead the league in steals, averaging 2.5 steals per game.

Coach of the Year: Dwane Casey

Toronto has had great regular seasons the past few years, and Dwane Casey is one of the reasons why. He has the best scoring bench in the league, which has helped Toronto earn the number 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. With the depth that they have, look for Toronto to make a deep run in the playoffs.

The impact of sports design

Two words: Sports Design. We see them on Instagram, Facebook, everywhere on social media honestly. Sports Edits of many players are made by graphic designers all around the world. Graphic designs have become so popular that even some professional teams have created art pages. Teams such as Utah Jazz and the Golden State Warriors have art pages due to the major popularity of the graphic edits.

People make names for themselves because of their edits. Some edit pages become very popular because users may like the style that a designer uses. In addition, some edits include players that have on a different team’s jersey, which creates hypothetical scenarios for fans to debate.

With the new wave on social media, even companies such as Champs and BleacheRreport are hiring popular designers to design post for them. While sports design may seem like a “trend”, it’s probably not going away anytime soon.
