AAF Scouting

Recommended Posts

AAF adds a new wrinkle to the offseason with some veteran guys getting extended looks.

QB

Christian Hackenberg is the starter for the Memphis Express. He, and they, didn't show well week 1. Hackenberg was on the Bengals practice squad for much of last season and in camp with Callahan and the Raiders

Luis Perez is the starter for the Birmingham Iron. I have a strong belief he ends up on our offseason roster. He was with the Rams last training camp and preseason. They won and he went 19/33 for 252 yards

Hackenberg, Jets 2nd round pick in 2016.  Earned $2.7 mil and has never thrown a pass.  Jets sent him to Oakland 2 years later.  Less than a month later he was cut.  Philly picked him up, less than a month later, gone.   Only 2nd rounder in 2016 not to play a game.  In fact, 253 were drafted in 2016, only 17 of them never played in a game.  The highest pick on that list by 3 rounds or 120 picks is Hackenberg.  This guy must be all kinds of bad.

Might be intriguing to watch Perez with the knowledge that he is a pretty likely fit here.

Might as well make a AAF sub category or something. I think this league will be very successful. This upcoming weekends games should draw higher ratings. Last week most people didn't even know about it. Some intriguing matchups coming up too.

I think San Antonio is my favorite team but man I really like seeing Spurrier do what he's always done.

I think they are messing up on 3 things.

 

1) stats are hard to find

2) no fantasy

3) I think these games are going to be too hard to find. They should stream some. I don't think any will be on regular tv this weekend.

They are all streamed live on YouTube and the AAF app.

Yeah idk what's up with the stats, I guess box scorers not in the budget yet?  

All the players shoulder pads are chipped so that on the fantasy app the little icons on ur phone screen move in real time with the players on the field. I haven't downloaded their app yet. Perhaps that is where all the stats are for now?  

Maybe their not releasing stats at this moment for some reason???

Links to what? 

AAF app probably just type AAF into Google play store. If u use iPhone I highly recommend throwing it away and getting a galaxy. 😁😁😁😁

For live YouTube streams just type in AAF in search box, it'll come up.

They have a unique brand of fantasy playable on the app, and they're pushing it hard.  It's play-call oriented instead of purely statistical.

Is it like those old game thingies in the bar where you tried to call the next play?  I fucking loved that thing. You could double down every few times for double points and make more points if you called the correct side of the field.  It was a blast.

As far as I am aware, that's exactly what it is.  It's a probabilistic system in which the fantasy player predicts the play call (to some reasonable degree of specificity i.e. run or pass, direction, ball carrier/receiver, field depth, etc) with scoring payouts relative to the probabilities.  I haven't actually tried it, but that's my understanding.

The problem I see is so many people stream games now and there is quite a bit of delay between live play vs when those of us cord cutters actually see it on our devices.
