Trivia: June 29, 2017

When was the last time a division featured three teams directed by coaches who earlier had led those teams to Super Bowl championships? answer »

Factoid: Passing leaders

When looking at quarterbacks, I prefer to take more of an apples-to-apples approach. If you look at just last year, it discriminates against those who missed time with injuries. So let’s instead look at the last 16 starts for quarterbacks – how they fared in their last full season worth of work.  more »


Around the NFL: New Orleans Saints

The Saints haven't played much defense the last few seasons. Just twice in the last decade, in fact, have they ranked higher than 20th in total defense (yards allowed). They probably won't in 2017, either.   more »


Trivia: June 28, 2017

Who are the only two quarterbacks who have started Super Bowls for three different head coaches? answer »


Fantasy News: Fanex Analysis Draft

I drafted Isaiah Crowell with the 36th pick of the Fanex Analysis Draft. Little did I know at the time that he would be the “veteran” runner on my team. All five of the other backs on my roster are entering their second seasons.   more »


Around the NFL: Zach Miller

Having gone on record in the back page of the new preseason annual with Zach Miller as the tight end I expect to have on a lot of teams, I was a little alarmed by the story I saw yesterday. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune thinks Miller might not even make it past final cuts in Chicago.   more »


Trivia: June 27, 2017

Ricky Bell was an All-America running back at Southern Cal, a No. 1 overall pick and starred for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before dying after a 2-year illness in 1984. What pop band, which had a No. 1 hit in 1968, featured his brother as the lead singer? answer »

Around the NFL: Detroit Lions

I was surprised when the Lions didn’t draft a running back. They’ve averaged a league-low 85 rushing yards per game over the last three years, and Ameer Abdullah has been plagued by injuries and fumbles.   more »

Around the NFL: Leonard Fournette

Leonard Fournette isn't being handed the started running back job in Jacksonville. He's working as the No. 2 behind Chris Ivory, with head coach Doug Marrone saying "people got to earn things." It's an understandable and admirable approach, even though Fournette will absolutely be the starter by Week 1.   more »

Around the NFL: Week in review

I was out of town for most of the week, but I spent a few hours on Saturday catching up. A rundown on some player developments that occurred that caused me to make changes on my draft board:  more »


Factoid: Tight end touchdown to target percentage

A couple of days ago we ran a table showing what wide receivers turned the highest percentage of their targets into touchdowns last year. A couple of Packers and free agent wideout Anquan Boldin topped that list. Looking at tight ends, a pair of rookies figure prominently.   more »

Trivia: June 25, 2017

Who is the only player who was been drafted in the first round twice by the same team? answer »


Fantasy News: Fanex Analysis Draft

Let me catch up on the Fanex Analysis Draft. Here are the capsules on the five guys I have chosen since I last checked in:  more »


Around the NFL: Derek Carr

The Raiders have made Derek Carr the highest-paid player in NFL history, and so begins the teeth-gnashing on Twitter and elsewhere about whether he's worth it and whatnot. It's pointless; this is what franchise quarterbacks make these days, the franchises themselves are making enough money to afford it, and Carr will probably be the highest-paid player for a very short period of time; two years from now he won't be in the top 10.   more »
