2019 NFL Power Rankings: Week 1

After careful consideration, I’ve decided to scrap my preseason power rankings from this point forward. Trying to set up a ladder before anyone’s played a down is fruitless. Moving on to Week 1!

1. Patriots (W 33-3 vs. PIT)

New England established dominance in their own conference once again. They add Antonio Brown tomorrow. God help us all.

2. Vikings (W 28-12 vs. ATL)

Mike Zimmer is a great football coach and Minnesota looked like a great-coached football team on Sunday. Last year, they feel well short of expectations. This year, after a year to learn and grow, they have no excuses. They showed up in a big game. Atlanta is one of the best offenses in the league. Minnesota bottled them and threw them with the rest of the trash. Dalvin Cook and the run game looked far better than last year. Arguably the best receiver duo in football, Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith in the secondary, Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr at linebacker and Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter at end. That’s a lot of problems. Now if Kirk can just start performing in prime time.

3. Saints (W 30-28 vs. HOU)

The Monday Night premiere provided week one’s best matchup. A thriller with two lead changes in the final minute. After all the years of Payton forgetting what a defense was, now he has one and the Saints are a Super Bowl contender because of it.

4. Chiefs (W 40-26 vs. JAC)

LeSean McCoy looked more than serviceable to me. Sammy Watkins played the best game of his career. He’ll have to have some more of those in Tyreek’s absence.

5. Texans (L 30-28 @NO)

They blew an 11-point halftime lead on the road and yet still had a chance to win. Up one, six seconds on the clock and Brees with possession at the 50, everyone knew what was coming next.

Except Bill O’Brien.

In a serious headscratcher, O’Brien called full prevent, a two man pressure with three defensive backs more than 20 yards off the ball. Brees took a gift-wrapped ten yards and kicker Wil Lutz kicked the game-winning points. The Texans looked excellent otherwise, with Deshaun Watson performing magic behind a turnstile of an offensive line. There’s no sugar-coating it. O’Brien cost his team a win and that’s one that’s gonna sting all year. This might be the year Houston makes it to a title game but if only O’Brien doesn’t mismanage it like his red zone offense.

6. Rams (W 30-27 @CAR)

Jared Goff’s progressions were off. He seemed out of sync the whole contest and yet, with their quarterback flustered, the Rams managed 30 points. Still lethal.

7. Cowboys (W 35-17 vs. NYG)

Dallas looked like a playoff team on Sunday.

A lot of teams will look like playoff teams when they play the Giants. Try to remember the context of the performance. The return of Travis Frederick gives the Cowboys arguably the best line in football.

8. Eagles (W 32-27 vs. WAS)

Philly’s start was troubling which is why they’re not higher on this list. The defense did not play well against one of the weaker offensive units in the league. This unsettles me. It’s a flaw Philly can’t afford to have if they want a legitimate chance at an NFC crown this year.

Carson Wentz, after shaking off the rust, looked like the MVP pick I slotted him for (My publishing schedule is off. I’m sorry.) and DeSean Jackson had quite the arrival back to Philly.

9. Packers (W 10-3 @CHI)

Offense looked bad but that wasn’t the story of the game for me. Hurdles arise with new coaching and playbooks but Mike Pettine returned as defensive coordinator and did excellent work with the improved unit given to him by general manager Brian Gutekunst. They looked like a swarm out there, something McCarthy rarely had or attempted to have while he was in charge. Defense is back in Green Bay and a more complete team makes for a more dangerous threat. It’s not a matter of when the offense gets going. It’s when and when it does, the league’s in trouble if Thursday night was any indication.

10. Bears (L 10-3 vs. GB)

When your defense holds Aaron Rodgers to ten points and you lose, all eyes turn to your offense. Mitch lost them this game. Hope it doesn’t cost them in the future. Also probably shouldn’t be giving Mitch the ball 45 times a game.

11. Ravens (W 59-10 @MIA)

If you started the entire Ravens offense in fantasy, you probably won your matchup. Was very impressive but remember the context. It was against the worst team in football.

12. Chargers (W 30-24 vs. IND)

I hope Melvin Gordon wasn’t watching on Sunday. The offense didn’t look serviceable without him; it looked great, running on all cylinders. Still, they blew a sizable lead. Would have liked to have seen them put up a more dominant performance.

13. Titans (W 43-13 @CLE)

Speaking of dominant performances, the Titans are outmatched on paper against Cleveland in every category except two: secondary and coach. Those two were the difference on Sunday. Well-coached teams beat bad-coached teams. #footballrules

14. Panthers (L 30-27 vs. LAR)

Christian McCaffrey put up one of my top-five performances of the week. That is one dangerous man. Meanwhile, Cam’s best days are behind him and you have to wonder if trigger fingers are getting itchy for a new franchise keeper.

15. Seahawks (W 21-20 vs. CIN)

Jadeveon Clowney looked good in a Seahawks uniform. It’s a shame that offensive line is still unsteady. They might want to think about doing something about it sometime. Maybe give the franchise quarterback the ball occasionally.

16. Falcons (L 28-12 @MIN)

Atlanta has a great offense but will struggle when they play more complete teams. Minnesota is a better team because they have a defense. Atlanta has struggled to develop defensive continuity due to injury. The clock is ticking on Dan Quinn. If there aren’t improvements with the defense this year, injuries or not, he should be let go.

17. Colts (L 30-24 @LAC)

Just because Andrew Luck is gone doesn’t mean the Colts season is over, even Colts fans think it is. They are a well-coached team and well-coached teams generally last until the end. Had Vinatieri not left seven points off the board, Indy would have nailed a huge road win against one of the best teams in the AFC with a backup quarterback. Teams and fans alike would be wise not to overlook them.

18. Bengals (L 21-20 @SEA)

Your 2019 passing leader through week one is…Andy Dalton? He threw for 418 yards, a career-high? Hmm.

19. Redskins (L 32-27 @PHI)

I told you not to underestimate Washington’s defense (I know the preview isn’t up yet. My publishing schedule got messed up. Sorry.) and they came to play Sunday. Washington was up 17-0 on the road against Philly. Then their coach showed up.

Jay Gruden is the definition of mediocrity and should have been fired two years ago. He should have been fired Monday morning after putting a healthy Adrian Peterson on the inactive list, a move that caused immediate karma for Gruden when Guice injured his other knee mid-game. Guice’s future in the league is now dismal at best, a player never capable of getting healthy and Washington has likely pissed (has pissed off everyone else in the locker room, including Trent Williams) the only man who wants to carry the football for them. Excellent asset management. Probably why the team is in Washington. It’s par for the course.

20. 49ers (W 31-17 @TB)

Jimmy Garroppolo has issues with his throwing mechanics. He was paid an exorbitant amount of money and made a franchise quarterback before he was truly groomed for the position. San Francisco has a promising young core and a great coach (the Shanahan system is a proven philosophy) but, similar to Chicago, can only go as far as their quarterback allows.

21. Steelers (L 33-3 @NE)

The Steelers’ coaching staff had months to plan for this game and this is what they came up with. A sweep on third and one, five wide on 4th and one and a field goal on the goal line. Teams that do those three things don’t win. The whole coaching staff should have been axed after last year and they’re only giving Steelers Nation more ammunition. Not one facet of the team looked ready on Sunday night.

22. Bills (W 17-16 @NYJ)

Buffalo was outplayed for three quarters and their offense was running on fumes. The fourth quarter came around and suddenly there was fuel. Do not overlook the Bills defense. This game should have been a blowout but the unit kept them in it. Josh Allen is mediocre (who could have saw that coming) but that defense is anything but.

23. Lions (T 27-27 @ARI)

The Detroit Lions were performing. It was unbelievable. The Detroit Lions were winning a game they should have been winning handedly, though not with much help from Kerryon Johnson (RIP, fantasy teams). An 18-point lead in the fourth quarter would surely be enough.

It wasn’t. Detroit squandered the lead, went to overtime and tied with a team they had outmuscled for three quarters and change. A must-win for Detroit, they couldn’t help but go full Lions. That’s why the Lions are the Lions. They take any potential opportunity and squander it. Matt Stafford’s never gonna win a playoff game, is he?

24. Jaguars (L 40-26 vs. KC)

At some point, the real Jacksonville Jaguars need to stand up. A team this stacked on defense shouldn’t be giving up 40 at home to Kansas City. Kansas City is an elite offense, don’t get me wrong, but Jacksonville has so much talent on defense. They should be able to do better than that. First rounders and established veterans all over the defensive line, linebacker corps and defensive backs. The reason the team continues to fall short is because of poor coaching. Jacksonville’s had poor coaching for a long time, even when they won the division in 2017. Marrone’s cowardice blew a ten-point fourth quarter lead in Foxborough and the team hasn’t recovered since. They need new leadership and with new signee Nick Foles potentially missing the year with injury, now would be the time to do it.

25. Raiders (W 24-16 vs. DEN)

Despite all of the drama and losing their best player days before their opener, Oakland came out and…played a good football game? Wow. Truly caught off guard by this one. The Jon Gruden contract is an ugly behemoth and bar the guy winning multiple Super Bowls during his tenure, is a loss for the organization. However, for the team to perform like that through all the scrutiny and press coverage was inspiring. Josh Jacobs looked like a first rounder for the first time in his career and the Raiders gave up no sacks against Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Give credit where credit is due.

26. Browns (L 43-13 vs. TEN)

Cleveland had the better quarterback, receivers, running backs, offensive line, defensive line and home field advantage.

They lost by 30.

Even when all the cards are in their favor, the Factory of Sadness spurts out more glorious content for family and friends everywhere. Cleveland looked like a team coached by a guy overwhelmed by the moment. Refball was alive and well. Cleveland better get on track fast or this season will eclipse the 0-16 Browns for the most Browns season in Browns history.

27. Jets (L 17-16 vs. BUF)

The Jets commanded this game for three quarters. They had four takeaways in the first half and the defense scored a pick-six and a safety.

They also missed an XP and a field goal. Had they not, they likely would have won. Still, the Jets defense put up an excellent performance and the Jets reverted to typical Jets and buttfumbled a win.

28. Cardinals (T 27-27 vs. DET)

The revolutionary Kliff Kingsbury and prodigal son Kyler Murray were getting stomped on by Detroit. 58 yards of offense in the first half and 100 after three. They were who we thought they were. Until they weren’t.

Arizona mounted an 18-point fourth quarter comeback to push the game to overtime, where the teams would trade field goals before time expired, rendering the match a draw. Arizona had stolen a tie in a game they had every right to lose.

29. Giants (L 35-17 @DAL)

The Giants looked great on their first drive. Not so much the rest of the way.

30. Buccaneers (L 31-17 vs. SF)

Bruce Arians might have come to clean up Tampa Bay but first he’ll have to deal with Famous Jameis. Two pick sixes on Sunday were the difference.

31. Broncos (L 24-16 @OAK)

Was weird seeing Joe Flacco in another uniform. Offense was very bland against below average competition and defense was bad against one of the worst offenses in football last year. At one point in the game, ESPN commentator Joe Tessitore said, “Carr to throw. Why wouldn’t he?” A team with Von Miller and Bradley Chubb on the edges didn’t have any pressure, recording zero sacks. Through one week, looks like Matt Nagy deserves more credit for the Bears defense than Vic Fangio does.

32. Dolphins (L 59-10 vs. BAL)

The Dolphins gave up 59 points.

At home.

They weren’t just the worst team on Sunday. They were the worst-coached team on Sunday. Maybe Flores should spend less time on the playlists at his practices and more time on the practices.

2019 NFL Preview: AFC North

CLEVELAND BROWNS

KEY ADDITIONS: WR Odell Beckham Jr., DE Olivier Vernon, DT Sheldon Richardson, RB Kareem Hunt

KEY DEPARTURES: QB Tyrod Taylor, G Kevin Zeitler, S Jabrill Peppers, RB Carlos Hyde, LB Jamie Collins, LB Emmanuel Ogbah, RB Duke Johnson Jr.

DRAFT: 2nd round: CB Greedy Williams, LSU   3rd round: OLB Sione Takitaki, BYU   4th round: S Sheldrick Redwine, Miami   5th round: LB Mack Wilson, Alabama   K Austin Seibert, Oklahoma   6th round: OT Drew Forbes, Southeast Missouri State   7th round: CB Donnie Lewis Jr., Tulane

SUMMARY: General manager John Dorsey had an offseason to remember and is currently leading my ballot for Executive of the Year. This team, after an incredible offseason, is stacked with talent. Cleveland has Pro Bowlers all over their defensive line, meaning they’ll likely make leaps in all of these metrics: 6288 yards allowed (30th), 24.5 points allowed (21st), 135.2 rushing allowed (28th) 38 sacks (19th).

Given the talent, Cleveland should be in the top half in all of those categories. Myles Garrett should have a breakout season with a lot of the opponent’s attention directed elsewhere. Their secondary is still young but Denzel Ward and company should have easier lives.

On offense, it’s quite the party. Baker Mayfield has all the weapons he needs to succeed. Odell and Landry are a top-three receiver duo and tight end David Njoku and running back Nick Chubb both have demonstrated high ceilings.

Yet, it would be so very much like Cleveland to mess this up. The talent is overwhelming but Freddie Kitchens is in his first year as coach. Cleveland likely loses a game or two due to bad coaching and those games could prove costly to a chance at their first division title since 1989. Failing to win the division would be a disappointment but missing the playoffs altogether, with this lineup, would be yet another stake through the heart of Cleveland.

FANTASY PLAYER TO WATCH: RB Nick Chubb

Baker Mayfield has high upside but is going as high as the end of the fourth round in some drafts and for a quarterback who has yet to show how far the rabbit hole goes, I’m not willing to take that risk. Odell could have a career year or see his usage rate drop in a hodge podge of skill positions, which seems more likely. Njoku is a great tight end as well but Chubb is the player I’d take from the Browns. Chubb is going in the second round of most drafts and while Njoku has high upside, Chubb’s command of the backfield, and Duke Johnson Jr.’s trade to boost that command further, are simply impossible to resist.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

KEY ADDITIONS: CB Steven Nelson, LB Mark Barron, WR Donte Moncrief

KEY DEPARTURES: WR Antonio Brown, RB Le’Veon Bell, S Morgan Burnett, LB Jon Bostic, WR Eli Rogers, CB Coty Sensabaugh

DRAFT: 1st round: LB Devin Bush, Michigan   3rd round: WR Diontae Johnson, Toledo   CB Justin Layne, Michigan State   4th round: RB Benny Snell Jr., Kentucky   5th round: TE Zach Gentry, Michigan   6th round: LB Sutton Smith, Northern Illinois   DT Isaiah Buggs, Alabama   LB Ulysees Gilbert III, Akron   7th round: G Derwin Gray, Maryland

SUMMARY: The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who can’t get out of their own way. Despite having what is undeniably a top-five offensive line, they refused to run the ball, finishing 31st in the league with 1,445, just ahead of Arizona. James Conner demonstrated improvement between his rookie and second year, and in Bell’s absence, showed workhorse potential, accumulating close to 1,000 yards rushing in 13 games on a 4.5 clip. At that clip, you would expect the Steelers to pound the rock. You would be wrong.

With Todd Haley gone, there’s no one in the Steelers’ coaching staff to curtail Ben’s ego. With Randy Fichtner at OC, Ben essentially calls the offense and Ben loves his own number, even when it’s not in the team’s best interest. Pittsburgh may have rid themselves of two cancers in the locker room but one still remains.

The Steelers are unlikely to take advantage of their outstanding run game and will be stuck force feeding Ben most weeks. This strategy will cost the Steelers one contest this season if not two and in a more competitive AFC, that might be the difference between the team making and not making the playoffs.

The defense is still coached by an incompetent coordinator who’s reluctant or ignorant of opposing offense’s adaptations mid-game and Tomlin has lost my faith after losing the locker room and allowing the team to become a soap opera.

Despite all the turmoil, Pittsburgh is still a talented team. Talented teams generally make it interesting but poor coaching, management and play-calling will get them in the end, as it always does.

FANTASY PLAYER TO WATCH: QB Ben Roethlisberger

JuJu Smith-Schuster is a talented receiver who will shine in Antonio Brown’s absence and James Conner looked like a game changer when healthy last season. However, Pittsburgh’s a pass-happy team with a pass-happy, egotistical quarterback. Ben chucked the ball a ton last year, 675 times to be exact. That was nearly 35 times, or about a whole game’s worth, more than Andrew Luck and almost 70, or about two game’s worth, more than the next man up, Matt Ryan. Given that usage rate, Ben should be a capable QB starter if not a flat-out QB1. Current rankings in ppr have him as a ninth-rounder. Ben finished third among quarterbacks last year. I understand the road struggles but usage rate, man.

BALTIMORE RAVENS

KEY ADDITIONS: FS Earl Thomas, RB Mark Ingram, CB Justin Bethel, LB Pernell McPhee

KEY DEPARTURES: LB C.J. Mosley, LB Za’Darius Smith, FS Eric Weddle, WR John Brown, LB Terrell Suggs, WR Michael Crabtree, RB Alex Collins, TE Maxx Williams, OL Alex Lewis, DT Brent Urban, OL Jermaine Eluemunor

DRAFT: 1st round: WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma   3rd round: DE Jaylon Ferguson, Louisiana Tech   WR Miles Boykin, Notre Dame   4th round: RB Justice Hill, Oklahoma State   G Ben Powers, Oklahoma   CB Iman Marshall, USC   5th round: DT Daylon Mack, Texas A&M   6th round: QB Trace McSorley, Penn State

SUMMARY: The Baltimore Ravens are a victim of the salary cap this season. Many teams can push off their death, alleviate the pain even  but all teams, at some point or another, go through it. It helps bring balance to the sport.

When C.J. Mosley and Za’Darius Smith both entered contract years, everyone, including the Ravens, knew they were in trouble. Two of the team’s best players, the two cogs of the front seven, needed new agreements and both were due a lot of money.

The Ravens were unable to bring back either and while the contracts both signed were pricey and likely unaffordable for Baltimore (Mosley for five years and $85 million, Smith for 4 and $66), it doesn’t alleviate the hole in the roster. Pernell McPhee was brought back home to play edge while Patrick Onwuasor, Chris Board and Kenny Young enter the middle, all relatively unknown commodities who are extremely unlikely to replicate a franchise linebacker’s production. Safety Eric Weddle and franchise edge rusher Terrell Suggs left for retirement tours elsewhere. The Ravens also have bad contracts in freshly-signed Tavon Young (season-ending injury yet again), Willie Snead and Brandon Carr to get out from under.

The defense finished first in yards against and second in points allowed at the conclusion of the 2018 campaign. They were really good and they’ll be good this year, they’re Baltimore, but they’ll fall in the rankings. They’ve simply lost too much this offseason.

On the plus side, if Earl Thomas returns to form, he’s an upgrade from Weddle, though far more expensive. I liked the Ravens draft. Oklahoma G Ben Powers likely starts the season while receivers Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin have a chance to become the franchise receiver Baltimore has been looking for since their inception. Running back Justice Hill is getting some praise in football circles and Trace McSorley is similar to Lamar Jackson.

And finally, onto Lamar. Jackson is a great athlete; I don’t doubt his speed. However, there were flags in his rookie tape, specifically a struggle to make basic NFL throws and concerning ball security. The Ravens are smart to run a system tailored to his skill set but I also hesitate to crown a team with a quarterback who will be lucky to throw 20 touchdowns. Jackson has a chance to run for 1,000 yards this season, something only one player has ever done. A bet on that at the sportsbook seems reasonable and we’ve seen the Ravens succeed with their scheme before. However, we also saw it stonewalled after only a few weeks and I believe teams will adapt and thwart it later in the season, leaving Baltimore on the outside looking in.

FANTASY PLAYER TO WATCH: RB Mark Ingram

With the Ravens installing a run-first offense, newcomer Mark Ingram seems the most likely candidate for an upswing. Baltimore has been a run-first offense for almost their entire existence and will be so again this year. Ingram is ranked 45 in Matthew Berry’s rankings, placing him in late third, early fourth territory. Ingram, given the scheme and work share, should be a capable RB2. If you somehow squeeze him into your flex, you’re golden.

SCHEDULE     PROJECTED RECORD: 7-9

Week 1: @MIA   Week 2: vs. ARI   Week 3: @KC   Week 4: vs. CLE   Week 5: @PIT   Week 6: vs. CIN   Week 7: @SEA   Week 8: BYE   Week 9: vs. NE   Week 10: @CIN   Week 11: vs. HOU   Week 12: @LAR   Week 13: vs. SF   Week 14: @BUF   Week 15: vs. NYJ   Week 16: @CLE   Week 17: vs. PIT

CINCINNATI BENGALS

KEY ADDITIONS: CB B.W. Webb, G John Miller

KEY DEPARTURES: LB Vontaze Burfict, TE Tyler Kroft, LT Cedric Ogbuehi, DE Michael Johnson, G Clint Boling, G Christian Westerman

DRAFT: 1st round: T Jonah Williams, Alabama   2nd round: TE Drew Sample, Washington   3rd round: LB Germaine Pratt, NC State   4th round: QB Ryan Finley, NC State   DT Renell Wren, Arizona State   G Michael Jordan, Ohio State   6th round: RB Trayveon Williams, Texas A&M   LB Deshaun Davis, Auburn   RB Rodney Anderson, Oklahoma   7th round: CB Jordan Brown, South Dakota State

SUMMARY: Cincinnati did the impossible: they fired Marvin Lewis.

Lewis should have been fired years before but it seemed there was nothing the man could do to cause dismay within the organization. Alas, the shoe finally dropped and now Zac Taylor coaches the Bengals, though they’ve been the Bungles as of late, bungling all over themselves. Last year, the orange and black finished in the bottom third in total offense and passing. The days of A.J. Green bailing them out are nearing an end. The Bengals missed their window.

The franchise is in rebuild mode, though they have their receiver in the future in Tyler Boyd (four-year extension worth $43 million, a reasonable and financially responsible investment). Notwithstanding, the injury bug is alive and well in Ohio. Jonah Williams, this year’s first-rounder, will miss the season following shoulder surgery. 2018 first-rounder Billy Price missed his rookie year with injury as did 2016 first-rounder William Jackson III and 2017 first-round choice John Ross might has well have missed his, playing in only three games. Four consecutive years without your first-round choice is quite a record and it’s no surprise the team has struggled to fill the holes the last few seasons. At this point, I think the team prays for health more than wins.

Andy Dalton’s prime years are behind him and his future with the franchise foggy at best. The team could have cut him this season and suffered only a $200,000 cap penalty, a direction I thought they’d go in to maximize their draft slot but management has chosen otherwise. Either way, Dalton’s final year is essentially an option year and Cincinnati has no commitment to keep it on the books. It’s likely they run with Driskel or Lindley next season or target a new franchise head for 2020.

With the exception of Joe Mixon, who’s one of the league’s best young backs, not much is going on in the jungle these days. Cincinnati re-signed a lot of their roster (LB Preston Brown, CB Darqueze Dennard, RT Andre Smith, to name a few) and will be running the gauntlet with many of the same faces. The team’s secondary hasn’t lived up to its draft stock yet and the linebacker group is especially thin. Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap still provide the defense a lethal d-line that may give teams trouble but expect the win column to be low.

FANTASY PLAYER TO WATCH: RB Joe Mixon

In fantasy, I tend to target usage rate. Who is getting the biggest share of the offense, will get more targets/carries, etc? Joe Mixon’s usage rate this year is going to be high. I’d be shocked if he doesn’t get 300 carries. With A.J. Green sidelined to start the season and Andy Dalton deteriorating, Mixon will start strong out of the gate. Mixon is an RB1 in the second round. Take him.
