Fantasy Football 2015 Season Review
The NFC North division came down to the wire in the last game of the season when the Vikings clinched the division besting the Packers in Green Bay.
- Minnesota Vikings (11-5)
The Vikings won the NFC North for the 1st time since 2009 and captured their 1st playoff berth since 2012. Major improvements were seen on both side of the ball for the Vikings compare to their prior campaign. Adrian Peterson’s 327 carries, 1485 league leading rushing yards and 11 TDs kept their offense steady and afloat all season.
Stefon Diggs complemented Peterson’s rushing game leading the team in receptions and receiving yardage. He will be a top target for their QB Teddy Bridgewater in the future and Fantasy picks wise.
Their week 6 win against the Chiefs was the 1st of 5 game winning streak, helping them to finish the season winning 9 out of their last 12. They will be looking to bounce back from their heartbreaking loss in the playoffs when their kicker, Blair Walsh missed a 27 yards field goal with 22 seconds game in the NFC Wildcard game.
- Green Bay Packers (10-6)
The last time the Packers entered the playoffs as a wild-card, they won the Super Bowl and ended up winning the division 4 years straight until this campaign. Jordy Nelson’s loss during the preseason due to an injury slowed down their offense.
Despite Aaron Rodgers’ decent numbers, their running back Eddie Lacy struggled to assert himself as the leading rusher splitting the task with James Stark.
They will be a promising contender and favourite to conquer the NFC North throne once again.
- Detroit Lions (7-9)
The Detroit Lions finished their season on a positive note after their terrible 0-6 start. They will also have huge shoes to fill if their superstar receiver Calvin Johnson leaves as rumors are stating. However, this would leave more room to growfor the 22 year old, Eric Ebron a solid fantasy pick for the near future after his impressive season (537 yards, 5 TDS, 47 receptions)
- Chicago Bears (6-10)
The Chicago Bears will have a lot of work to do in the off season. Despite Matt Forte’s season ending injury, the Bears seem to have found their future QB with Jeremy Langford. They will have to recruit more in depth to be a contender for the next few seasons.
