Who are Your Top 5 Wide Recievers in the NFL?


heatratiocrop

In what should be a very active offseason, the Eagles have a lot of decisions to make. Who gets paid, cut, and/or allowed to walk. What is your biggest concern? On the other side of the parking lot, the Phillies are looking to build a winner too. Do they sign a top of the rotation guy named Jake?

How about the NBA? Were the Michael Jordan years the best the league has ever seen? Have people lost a respect for the game based on the play? Would you want or allow the Eagles to sign Dez Bryant if he gets cut? Is Kennan Allen the best WR in the NFL? If so, where does Larry Fitz grade out?

Lastly, Fantasy Baseball is right around the corner and 2 Top Sluggers have new homes. Who is the better play, Hosmer or Martinez?  There is so much packed into 1 hour!

The Heat Ratio (@theheatratio) brings a set of unique views and opinions each week to focus on all the top sports stories from the news. Listen in as Tony (@TCutillo23) says put Larry Fitz in his Top 3 for WRs while John (@PGHJohn36) says he belongs after the Top 5. From a Classic Tony rant to a Dez Bryant option, it’s all here just waiting for your take….

Sum of All Sports Report: NFL Free Agency Lift Off


NFL free agency is upon us and there are already numerous stories that are trending worldwide. Trades are still being talked about, releases are in the early stages, and contracts are being written all ahead of the Thursday unveiling. Who will go where and for how much is all that is left to sort out. Whether it be the Twitter GM’s, the passionate fans or the credible reporters, this continues to be one of the most exciting phases of the NFL offseason!

Fantasy Sports Expert and Real Sports Insider Tony Cutillo uses his expertise to answer the questions of who goes where and why. He offers his unique insight and opinion on what these moves all mean. Along with Free Agency, he gives us a wide variety of topics that will keep all the Fantasy Sports, Real Sports and Sports Entertainment Fans sparking up a debate.

 * NFL Free Agency….The legal tampering period is upon us and contracts will be signed in a few days. With all the players available, who do you think will sign the most surprising deal or offer the best story?

My money is on Adrian Peterson. At 32 years old and coming off an injury plagued year once again, he is already finding out the market isn’t what he expected. He will sign somewhere, but not for the money he was originally thought to receive.

* March Madness….Selection Sunday is coming up and championship week is in full swing. The NCAA tournament is the best contest in sports. From its unpredictability to its last second finishes, it reigns supreme in the world of sports.  While teams like Florida Gulf Coast and Iona are already in, who will be left on the bubble hoping for a miracle? Who is getting the (4) #1 seeds?

* FantasyBaseball….For those of you watching the Spring Training action have already noticed that Clayton Kershaw has been locked in. It’s not like he needed to give owners more of a reason why he should be the top pitcher selected, but he has decided to imprint it into their heads. He has only allowed 1 base runner this spring and still hasn’t given up a hit. Any questions? Do you take him #1?

* NBA…..Dirk Nowitzki adamantly silenced all the critics who labeled him as a jump shooter that avoids contact this week by becoming only the 6th player in NBA history to accumulate 30,000 points. After this achievement, his Mavs teammates and owner Mark Cuban mobbed him during a timeout. Is there any better owner in sports?

Kudos to Dirk for continuing to play stellar basketball for the better part of 19 seasons all with the same franchise.  In the days of the spoiled athlete and overpaid contracts, for a player to stay with one franchise for his entire career speaks volumes to the sacrifices made along the way.  Will this be his last year? Where does he fall on the all time list?

* WWE…The Undertaker has returned and looks to build on his match against Roman Reigns for WrestleMania 33. This was a scenario we all seen coming, especially with the way Roman kept eluding to the ring as his yard. We all know that is Taker’s line and it was just a matter of time before he appeared to take it back. With his documented hip issue, can the Undertaker still carry a match? Will this be his last WrestleMania? Now that the streak is over, does he offer the same appeal?

Fantasy Football Analysis: If Brandin Cooks was a Philadelphia Eagle


It’s mid afternoon on the eve of the legal tampering phase of NFL Free Agency and the biggest question seems to be if Brandin Cooks will be bleeding green in 2017. Everyone who is in tune with the NFL has taken to social media to give their take on this odd, but fluid situation. We have seen players and draft picks thrown around in this supposed deal faster than a ping pong ball on a beer pong table. Whether or not it happens still hinges on the willingness for the Saints to dance with the perfect partner. There are several available with the Eagles being in the front of the line, but all with different visions. However, the situation still is in the building stages with a blueprint that still needs approval.

Brandin Cooks is a 23 year old receiver, who has been an integral part of the high powered Saint’s offense led by Drew Brees and Sean Payton.  Cooks enters the final year of his four year rookie contract and is looking to cash in on a monster payday, one he doesn’t see in his future with the Saints.  He played 10 games as a rookie, but has put up some impressive stats over the last 3 years.

2014….10 games …..70/550/3     70 targets

2015….16 games…..84/1,138/9  129 targets

2016….16 games…..78/1,173/8   117 targets

The Oregon State product finished the 2016 season with 78 receptions for 1173 yards, but it was the game by game production that could be a cause for concern. In 2015, Cooks only had 1 game where he was held to under 4 receptions and never went catchless that year. However, in 2016 he had 5 games where he produced less than 4 receptions and even tallied a game where he didn’t catch a single pass. ESPN reported afterwards that Cooks was frustrated with his role in this 49-21 blowout win over the Los Angeles Rams and the downward trend begin to unravel from there.

Sure Michael Thomas’s stellar rookie campaign was the main reason for the difference in game by game production, but to tally numerous games with low production totals is enough to throw shade to any eventual deal.  As a fantasy football owner, you constantly look at game by game production in the hopes of gaining maximum consistency for the scoreboard.  If you look at the breakdown below, you will notice the difference between years……

2015….16 games….5.2 catches, 71 yards per game….7 games of 80+ receiving yards (4 w/120+)

2016….16 games….4.8 catches, 73 yards per game….4 games of 80+ receiving yards (3 w/ 140+)

These stats are pretty similar, but you can clearly see the difference in big games versus steady production. However, they are still fantastic numbers for any receiver on your team, which makes you wonder why he wants out.

Cooks would bring  an immediate upgrade over the inept group of receivers on the Eagles roster, as well as any rookie that is available. I know John Ross is being talked about as the best comparison, but Cooks has proved his worth on this level while Ross is still a prospect. Would you rather get an established receiver for at least two seasons or gamble in the draft to get a player who may be more established one day?

I personally think the ceiling has been set on Cooks and you know what type of ROI you are receiving in return. In the eyes of receptions, he has shown what he can do. His stats will not falter much up or down and leave you with a force on the field that has to be marked. A rookie may have a higher ceiling, but may never blossom into that potential. As the twitter wars start to unfold, I still think the jealousy factor and the attitude need to be looked at strongly in this situation, especially if you are willing to part with a high draft pick. However, if Brandin comes knocking on Howie’s door with a 2nd round proposition, you shouldn’t need David Copperfield to convince you to #DoTheDeal!
