Factoid: Jacksonville's defense

Jacksonville’s defense comes off a remarkably good season, and they’ve amassed an impressive bundle of talent. But does it make sense to select this defense three rounds before the others next summer in drafts?   more »

Fantasy News: Fantasy Index Experts Poll

Mike Clay is the winner of the Defense portion of the Experts Poll, and it was the Jacksonville Jaguars that won it for him. Clay ranked that defense higher than anyone else, and they came through in spades for him, piling up sacks, takeaways and touchdowns.  more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LII Preview: New England Patriots (Part I)

The Patriots are trying to win their sixth Super Bowl, and strong chance they'll do it. They've got the better offense (if for no other reason than they've got a Hall of Fame quarterback), and their defense has performed better than its ranking for more than half a season. But it looks like it should be a competitive game, matched up with the regular season's best all-around team, and a below-average situation for their offense.   more »

Dynasty Leagues: Revised quarterback rankings

The Vikings are done for the year. Now what? They’ve got Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford, and they’ve got to figure out which one will be their starting quarterback.  more »


Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

In some respects, we should have all seen it coming. I guess most of us knew the Patriots were going back to the Super Bowl, no shock there. But the Eagles weren't favored in either playoff game; the popular belief was that no Carson Wentz meant no Super Bowl. And that was really wrong.   more »


Trivia: January 22, 2018

Tom Brady just started in the AFC Championship for the 7th straight year. Who is the only other quarterback all-time who has started in 5 straight conference championship games? answer »


Around the NFL: Schottenheimer to the rescue?

The Seahawks are trying to switch gears offensively. They’ve fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable. They’ve got Mike Solari coming in to work with the offensive line, and they’ve got Brian Schottenheimer taking over as the new offensive coordinator. But is this going to help Russell Wilson and Seattle’s other key offensive players?   more »


Around the NFL: Sunday morning injury updates

It's the morning of the games where we find out which teams we'll learn way too much about over the next two, lengthy weeks. And the injury reports are coming in, which promise an additional player in New England's backfield, and no apparent concerns for the key player on each AFC team.   more »


Trivia: January 21, 2018

When New England and Jacksonville last met in a conference championship game, following the 1996 season, Drew Bledsoe and Mark Brunell started – two quarterbacks who played their college ball in the same state. Since that time, when is the only other time this has occurred – two quarterbacks who played their college ball in the same state going head-to-head in a conference championship game? The state in question is below average in population. answer »

Factoid: Passing inside the 10

I was poking around with some of the numbers – looking not so much at the conference championship games, but compiling numbers that can be used in research for the 2018 season (yes, we’re moving into that time). But as I look at passing performance inside the 10, the numbers might also shed some light on our championship games.   more »

24 Hours 'Til Sunday: Snapshot previews of the championship games

I wrote the Fantasy Index Weekly style previews during the week, so most have a pretty good idea of what I'm expecting from these games. But I'm wrong sometimes, and frankly have not done a stellar job with these playoff games (although would look a lot better but for that miracle play against the Saints last week). Would be sitting in the catbird's seat if Brees, Kamara and Thomas were still playing.   more »

Trivia: January 20, 2018

Rob Gronkowski has caught touchdowns in six straight playoff games. Who are the only two players all-time who've caught touchdowns in more consecutive playoff games? One of these guys is a Hall of Famer (but not the first guy you might think of). The other is a former seventh-round pick who was in the league for only five years. answer »
