Andy Richardson: Tips and tidbits from the NFL schedule

I've had a chance to review the NFL schedule. I like to look for certain things to file away for this year's fantasy drafts. It's not about which team has an easy or tough schedule, one because we've known the opponents for months, two because we don't know which teams will actually be good or bad. It's more about things I'd like to avoid or embrace, for various reasons, come draft time. For example:  more »

Trivia: April 19, 2019

Who’s the only quarterback who’s taken 10 sacks over the last three years when his team has been within 10 yards of the goal line? The answer will surprise you. answer »

Around the NFL: Kenyan Drake

If you’re a fan of contract-year players, Kenyan Drake should be on your radar. He’s entering the final year of his rookie contract, and he’s looking to show he’s a starter-caliber back.  more »


Around the NFL: Phillip Lindsay

The NFL Draft is coming up, but it's worth remembering that every so often some pretty good players come along that weren't even drafted. The Broncos found a running back after the draft last year in Phillip Lindsay, who went on to be the first undrafted offensive rookie selected to the Pro Bowl.   more »


Trivia: April 18, 2019

Who are the only three players who caught multiple touchdown passes in the postseason last year? Most of us watched all of snaps of the 11 playoff games, but most probably can’t even identify one of the three players who caught 2 TDs (nobody caught 3). answer »


Around the NFL: Jones on the rise?

I see that Bucs GM Jason Licht is talking up Ronald Jones. Tampa Bay selected him early in the second round last year, and the hope is that he can turn the corner and develop into a contributor.   more »


Around the NFL: Dwayne Haskins

I have some interest in Dwayne Haskins. He doesn't carry with him the excitement of Kyler Murray, but some chance he'll be the second quarterback selected, maybe going to a team like the Giants (who have some nice skill guys in place). He brings with him a nice, albeit short, college resume.   more »


Trivia: April 17, 2019

What do Kalen Ballage, Trey Burton, Kenneth Dixon, Keenan Reynolds and Kapri Bibbs have in common? answer »

Around the NFL: Doubting Thomas

The Patriots have signed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, adding another contender for playing time to their receiving corps. But it remains to be seen how much (if anything) Thomas has left.  more »


Factoid: D.K. Metcalf

I'm not sure how I feel about D.K. Metcalf. He'll be one of the first wide receivers drafted after blowing up the combine, but there's definitely some risk there. He had one full college season, and two other wiped out by injury. Will he be a future star?  more »


Trivia: April 16, 2019

Since the merger in 1970, who are the only two coaches who have gone 1-5 in conference championship games? answer »


Around the NFL: Mariota adds weight

I see that Marcus Mariota is going the bigger is better route. The Titans are working out, and Mariota says he’s 5-10 pounds heavier.   more »


Andy Richardson: Josh Jacobs, Part II

A few days ago I ran a Josh Jacobs-related item about running backs in their final year of college. The gist was that most running backs drafted in the first three rounds have put up big numbers in their final seasons, while Jacobs played in a tandem with Damien Harris. Jacobs will be selected early, but some teams may hesitate. But they've got to be intrigued by the overall potential.   more »


Trivia: April 15, 2019

Who are the only five quarterbacks chosen with first-round picks in the Super Bowl era who never started a game for the team that drafted them? answer »


Factoid: Alshon Jeffery

Nick Foles is with the Jaguars now, and that might be bad news for Alshon Jeffery. Jeffery wasn’t nearly as effective last year when Carson Wentz was at quarterback.   more »
