Around the NFL: Sunday morning injury updates

Once the inactives start rolling in, there's more clarity about which players can at least be entirely disregarded with tough lineup decisions. An hour before kickoff, there are a bunch of those players officially inactive, making the remaining options stronger.   more »

Factoid: Kicking butt (part 2)

I posted a Factoid earlier in the week, showing how a bunch of kickers are scoring a lot of points. Seven teams are on pace to score over 149 kicking points, and Greg Zuerlein and Ryan Succop look like they might challenge the all-time scoring record for kickers.  more »

NFL Injury Report: Monday night injuries

Good news for those hoping to start Alshon Jeffery on Monday night. Washington has ruled out cornerback Josh Norman. That makes it more likely Jeffery will have a big night. (When Norman is healthy and on his game, that’s a matchup the Eagles probably would shy away from; when Carson Wentz threw for 307 yards and 2 TDs at Washington back in Week 1, Jeffery caught only 3 passes for 38 yards.)   more »

Andy Richardson: Punt and kick returners

When deciding between a couple of close fantasy defenses, I like to go with the one where I think there's a chance of a guy taking a punt or kickoff back for a touchdown. There aren't many teams that qualify nowadays. But some are better than others.   more »

Andy Richardson: Week 7 Blackout Picks

It would be wrong of me to brag about my performance in last week's Fantasy Index Blackout competition. After all, I'd done poorly enough to this point that people were starting to talk. So finishing in the top 8% with a score of 178 is nothing I should feel compelled to crow about. Just smile and nod and move on to Week 7.   more »

Factoid: Derek Carr against Kansas City

I’m not confident about Derek Carr turning things around tonight. He’s been playing pretty poorly, and he’s facing a defense that seems to have a good feel for how to play against him. Andy Reid took the Kansas City job in 2013, and he’s 7-1 against Oakland.   more »
