Circling back to Marshawn Lynch for just a moment. To me, him and Calvin Johnson are in the same class as Hall of Fame prospects. Great players and certainly solid prospects. I like them better than some guys who are already in there. Just will come down to trying to get them in the top 5 when they’re eligible.   more »

Factoid: Buffalo running backs

LeSean McCoy appears to be in some legal hot water after an incident involving a couple of off-duty police officers. Too soon to say how that one will play out, but early reports don't sound good. Few teams, at least, look better able to withstand trouble for their starting running back than Buffalo.   more »

Factoid: Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers are young and talented at many positions, so there's a tendency to think they'll be right back in the Super Bowl next season. To do that, though, they'll need to overcome a couple of decades of history working against them.  more »

Houston pulled an unusual feat this year, winning its division despite starting four different quarterbacks -- Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates and Brandon Weeden. Since the league moved to an eight-division format in 2002, what is the only other team that has been able to do this? answer »


Viva Murillo!: What I Learned 2016

If you don't learn something new every year, you're falling behind. Even when I'm not trying, I get reminded of lessons I never knew, forgot a long time ago, or didn't really believe until now. Here are just a few things I learned over the course of the fantasy season and beyond.  more »


Factoid: Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning got his second Super Bowl title, but he didn’t get it with a usually successfully playoff formula. The Broncos relied far more on their defenses; his numbers were unusually mild.  more »

24 Hours 'Til Sunday: Super Bowl Preview

There's been a recent groundswell of support for the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 tomorrow. Two factors at play here. One is the sentimentality of Peyton Manning riding off into the sunset, which many would like to see. The other is the annual pattern where there's an early favorite, and then the next two weeks are spent playing devil's advocate, making the case for the underdog.   more »
