Evaluating every coaching and offensive coordinator change (plus Leonard Fournette released!)
Andy Behrens is joined by Patrick Dougherty of Rotoworld from 4for4 Football to talk about the coaching carousel and much more on the latest episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast!
First up, some news: The Jacksonville Jaguars WAIVED running back Leonard Fournette. Yes, the Fournette era — which started via a top-five draft pick — is over for the Jags. Andy and Patrick discuss the fantasy implications of this move, considering the running backs on the depth chart are: Chris Thompson, Ryquell Armstead, Devine Ozigbo and a pair of undrafted free agents. (1:35)
Next up, Patrick and Andy look back at all of the major head coach and offensive coordinator changes that occurred this offseason and talk about what to expect with the season less than two weeks away.
The Eagles, Vikings, Rams and Bears all landed new OCs and the Cowboys kept theirs but swapped out HC Jason Garrett for Mike McCarthy. Can we expect any major changes to these offenses at all or will they pretty much resemble what they looked like last year? (16:05)
Can Kevin Sefanski and Alex Van Pelt revive Baker Mayfield in his third season and effectively run a copy of the 2019 Minnesota offense (but with Odell Beckham, Jr.)? (21:35)
Pat Shurmur has been a bad head coach but always pretty effective as an offensive coordinator. Can he rocket second-year duo Drew Lock and Noah Fant into the conversation in the AFC? (27:35)
Will Ron Rivera & Scott Turner bring stability to Washington and help mature Dwayne Haskins into the first-round talent he promised at Ohio State? (33:55)
Joe Judge & Jason Garrett will steer the ship for the New York Giants. Will Judge’s scared-straight drill sergeant routine help the lowly G-Men and can Garrett turn Daniel Jones into a more consistent QB? (40:20)
With new pieces all over the Carolina organization from head coach Matt Rhule all the way down, will Teddy Bridgewater be put in the best place to succeed with the talented, if slightly unproven, WR corps? (46:25)
