The Boys Dominating Jersey Sales

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).

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.

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.

Cleveland Browns Struggle to Return to Former Glory

September 21, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
From 1946 through 1955, the worst season for the Browns was an 8-4 mark. They won five straight championships — the first four in the AAFC and the final one in their first season in the NFL. They went to the title game another three years running and then won back-to-back titles before their first losing season, in 1957.

Arizona Suffers Tough Loss in Opener

September 13, 2016 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Still, given that Arizona’s superb offense returns intact it’s going to spell trouble for the rest of the NFC, so you might want to avoid using your Fantasy defense against this unit. And despite the tough setback, it was a fine Fantasy day for several individual Cardinals as the team racked up 344 yards of offense and 21 first downs.
