Fantasy News: Seattle Seahawks

I’m higher than most on Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. I have already selected those guys in multiple drafts. So I have a special interest in Antonio Brown. What would happen to those receivers if Brown were to sign with the Seahawks?   more »

Andy Richardson: Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins is available on waivers in one of my dynasty leagues. He's potentially the No. 2 wide receiver working with one of the game's best quarterbacks, so it's a little surprising. Or is it? He's far from a sure thing.   more »

Around the NFL: Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew landed briefly on the COVID list, but he’s back now, and I have some interest in him as a late-round pick. He was surprisingly decent as a rookie, and the Jaguars could have a passer-friendly offense.  more »

Around the NFL: Jordan Reed

Jordan Reed signed with San Francisco yesterday. Knee-jerk reaction might be excitement, since he's joining an offense that has produced some big numbers from tight ends, including Jacob Tamme, Austin Hooper and currently George Kittle. But that excitement is unwarranted.   more »

Viva Murillo!: Pants On Fire

This year is definitely an unusual one for football. No preseason games. A special Covid-19 list for players who either tested positive or had contact with someone who did (Matthew Stafford is on it). The league can't even say if fans will be in the stands when the season starts. But one thing won't change: Coaches will be lying to you all the way up until kickoff. And this year, their lies could cost you a title.   more »

Trivia: August 4, 2020

Washington signed Dontrelle Inman on Monday. He’s one of the league’s most well-traveled wide receivers. He was originally with the San Diego Chargers, made the move to Los Angeles in 2017 and was traded to Chicago halfway through that season. He spent 2018 with the Colts, then was back with the Chargers in 2019. After they released him, he finished last season back in Indianapolis. On this topic, who are the only two active players with at least 400 career catches who’ve caught passes for five different teams? answer »

Around the NFL: JaWuan James opts out

Many are expecting (or at least hoping) Denver’s offense takes a nice step forward this year, perhaps helping the team make a run at a wild-card spot. The probability of that happening went down today. JaWuan James is a big part of their plans, and he’s opting out because of the COVID-19 pandemic.   more »

Factoid: Patriots tight ends

Matt LaCosse opted out of the season for New England yesterday. It's not as big a name as Patrick Chung or Dont'a Hightower, but LaCosse might conceivably have been the Patriots' starting tight end this year. Next man up is now Ryan Izzo, or more likely one of the team's two Day 2 rookies.   more »
