The No. 2 football program in the nation came to the Banks on Saturday to oppose a Rutgers football team that was in the midst of a season that had seen only two victories, seven losses and the firing of its head coach leading up to its game this past weekend.
Fresh off its final bye week of the season, the Rutgers football team will host one of the country's most prolific programs in Ohio State.
With 10 weeks in the books, I can say with certainty that this has been one of the most grueling fantasy seasons I’ve ever experienced. Somehow I have managed to be ranked top 3 in all of my leagues. Nevertheless, it seems as though there have been more key injuries and letdowns this year than ever before. The only players that were picked top 10 in fantasy drafts, and have actually lived up to their expectations, are Christian McCaffrey and Michael Thomas. Every other player has either been hurt or just simply hasn’t produced. With that being the case, this was really a year that tested the managing capabilities of fantasy owners, and the work doesn’t stop now. Similarly to last week, there are a decent amount of superstars on a bye, so this will be another week where the waiver wire is crucial. As usual, I will include my start/sit predictions at the end of the column.
For the first 30 minutes in its fourth game cast as the visitors this season, the Rutgers football team looked poised to turn the script on the road. Outside of SHI Stadium, the Scarlet Knights (2-7, 0-6) have not won on the road since in this Midwest setting of Champaign, Illinois, back on Oct. 14, 2017.
With another week in the books, it should be pretty clear whether or not your fantasy team is a playoff contender. If it isn’t, then I guess at this point you just want to salvage your fantasy dignity and avoid finishing in last place. But if it is, good work so far, this has been a hectic fantasy season to say the least, and there is still more work to do.
One of the key assets of the Rutgers football team’s offense the past several years, independent of its sub -.500 records, was the strength of the running game. And this showed time and time again this past Saturday.
After suffering six consecutive losses since Aug. 30, the Rutgers football team seemed to be going in the same direction as last season, which resulted in a 1-11 overall record.
When the fourth quarter came to an end on Saturday, the Rutgers football team found itself in an unfamiliar position: On the right side of a 44-34 score in a late season win over Liberty at the SHI Stadium.
While the Rutgers football team has used three different quarterbacks this season — and could opt for a fourth depending on this week's practice reps — its upcoming opponent has consistently brought out one of the nation's underrated passers, Liberty's Stephen Calvert, along with the rest of the offense.
This past weekend, the Rutgers football team came into its game against No. 17 Minnesota with a desire to flip the script on the season in terms of defensive production. The team had been outscored by 145 points in their previous six games, and the Scarlet Knights’ (1-6,0-5) defensive unit sought to limit the damage in what would have to be another tough-fought battle against their opponent.
The Rutgers football team welcomed an undefeated No. 17 Minnesota team for the first-ever meeting between the two inter-division Big Ten teams in Piscataway.
The Rutgers football team has gone up against its fair share of talented passing offenses. Iowa's quarterback Nate Stanley threw for more than 250 yards and three touchdowns in week two action. Michigan's Shea Patterson also threw in the 200s for passing, checking in at 276 passing yards and one touchdown at Michigan Stadium.
Heading into week seven we are right next to the halfway point of the fantasy regular season and just wow, what a crazy season it has been. This has honestly been one of the craziest seasons in recent memory.
Amid the losing woes for the Rutgers football team this season, between its 16 straight Big Ten losses and the firing of former head coach Chris Ash, the special teams unit has consistently been a bright spot.
If there was any indication that the Rutgers football team would play the spoiler role in Indiana's homecoming game, it was immediately eliminated from redshirt junior offensive lineman Michael Maietti's first snap of the contest.
This is one of those dreadful times of the fantasy season where it seems like just about every offense in the league has been tampered with in some way. Whether it be due to a high ankle sprain (Saquon Barkley), turf toe (Devante Adams), concussion (a whole slew of guys) or just a lackluster season thus far (Kirk Cousins).
When the Rutgers football team, led by redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Langan, took the field for its first offensive play against Maryland this past Saturday, one key asset to the backfield and the receiving group watched from the sidelines: Junior running back Raheem Blackshear.
Last February, three former Rutgers football team standouts and alumni won Super Bowl LIII with the New England Patriots — Devin McCourty, Jason McCourty and Duron Harmon.
Last season, starting quarterback Johnny Langan was a redshirt freshman at Boston College. Buried in the depth chart, he was asked by the coaching staff to consider switching to linebacker.
