The Boys Dominating Jersey Sales

November 29, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Dick's Sporting Goods Jersey Report
DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report is a fascinating look into player popularity.

This post brought to you by DICK'S Sporting Goods. The content and opinions expressed below are that of RotoRob.

With the NFL’s best record at 10-1 (and currently riding a 10-game win streak), the Dallas Cowboys may soon be America’s Team once again.

At the very least, their recent domination is sparking a serious interest in their jerseys as the shirts of four of their stars currently rank among the top nine sellers in the USA according to DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report.

The report, launched five years ago, represents an aggregation of all on-line and in-stores sales data of the latest NFL jerseys at DICK’S Sporting Goods, the nation’s largest sporting goods retailer, one with a big presence on Facebook and Instagram.

You can search through the report based on overall (all players), by offense only, by defense only, by rookies, and by team rankings, all of which can be viewed by week, 30 days or for the season (which for this purpose, starts on draft day).

RotoRob IN San Diego CHARGERS SHIRT
RotoRob likes to rock his Chargers’ powder blue.

DICK’S believes sports makes people better, and who can argue with that philosophy? It’s one we’ve shared since the day we entered the world pink and fearless.

The four biggies for the Cowboys on the jersey front this week are:

  • Ezekiel Elliott, RB: One of the keys behind Dallas rebuilding its identity this year, this rookie back soared from No. 4 last week after scoring another two touchdowns on Turkey Day. We bet plenty of kids were thinking of owning Elliott’s jersey when they snapped the wish bone at dinner.
  • Jason Witten, TE: Up six spots this week, from 11 to five, this veteran continues to make big plays en route to what’s shaping up as his best season since 2013.
  • Dak Prescott, QB: Soaring up the charts this week (from 21 to eight) is rookie quarterback sensation Prescott. Despite his lowest passing yardage total of the season on Thanksgiving, he turned in another highly efficient outing while adding his fourth rushing touchdown of what’s become a brilliant season.
  • Dez Bryant, WR: Rounding out the Cowboy quartet in the Top 10 is Bryant, up eight spots to No. 9 this week. There was plenty of trash talking between him and Josh Norman on Thanksgiving, but in the end it was Bryant who had the last laugh, busting through for several big plays to help Dallas win in a game he was questionable to play in because of his back.

Other notes of interest:

  • Carson Wentz jerseys rank No. 1 overall not only over the last 30 days, but for the entire season, proving fans sure do love their rookies.
  • But don’t forget about the veterans! Tom Brady is No. 2 overall for the season, so there’s clearly still plenty of love out there for the greybeards.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. jersey continue to be red hot, rising from No. 6 to No. 3 this week among all offensive players.

Wil Myers: Season in Review

November 21, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
One of the most important takeaways from Myers’ season — from a keeper league perspective — is that he only appeared in 10 games in the outfield, likely losing his eligibility in most formats. So going forward he’s only first base eligible.

The Wire Troll: Valtteri Filppula Striking For the Lightning

November 20, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Ward has been off the charts good this month, especially lately, with a shutout Tuesday and just three goals allowed over his last three games — all wins. He now has a winning record, and should easily shatter last season’s total of 23 wins. There’s a reason Ward has been one of the week’s hottest pickups, but there’s still time to jump on his train if you need netminding assistance.

The Wire Troll: Mike Muscala Coming Into His Own For Hawks

November 19, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
What is this, alumni week? All these old farts refusing to make way for the future… it’s crazy! Barnes, who will be 37 before the season is up, is another throwback player, posting back-to-back 15-point efforts in the last two games, with a combined six treys. Hell, he even added seven boards and two blocks on Friday in a pretty damn complete effort. As we mentioned up top, with the Kings going small, Barnes is one of the players who stands to benefit, so give him a long look as so far his homecoming (he’s a Sacramento native and played one season for the Kings before electricity was invented) is going extremely well even if he’s not seeing the same kind of minutes he did last season.

Mike Brown: From Linebacker to Lines of Code

November 4, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
After earning All-American honours as the ACC’s leading tackler as a senior, this linebacker went undrafted in 2009. The Indianapolis Colts penned Brown (who changed his last name to Tauiliili in college, but goes by Brown in his post-playing professional career) to a two-deal, but he never made it off the practice squad and was ultimately cut in early-September 2009.
