Fantasy News: Trading down for Kareem Hunt

I’ve selected another team, in the Fanex league (competing against 11 other industry analysts). So another chance to at a how a draft unfolded and what I maybe should have done differently.  more »


Around the NFL: Josh Allen

AJ McCarron broke his collarbone last night, and that's probably a season-ender. Put it this way, the Bills won't be holding a spot on the 53-man roster for AJ McCarron. The odds of Josh Allen starting right away have naturally increased; it will be either him or Nathan Peterman.   more »


Trivia: August 18, 2018

What two teams in this century have selected four wide receivers in the first round of the draft, with none of those players ever having a 1,000-yard season at the NFL level? As luck would have it, these teams are playing against each other today. answer »

Around the NFL: Jeremy Hill

We've all been burned by Patriots running backs. But they can reward fantasy teams handsomely, too, as LeGarrette Blount showed a couple of years ago, and Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead did (if you had them at the right times). Is Jeremy Hill now on that track?  more »


Trivia: August 17, 2018

The Patriots selected Sony Michel in the first round. Back in 1998, they used a first-round pick on running back Robert Edwards, who also played his college ball at Georgia. Since the merger in 1970, what is the only team that’s used two top-5 picks on running backs from the same school (not just first-round picks, but choices in the top 5)? answer »

Trivia: August 16, 2018

Continuing what we started yesterday (with Alfred Morris). What player ran for the most yards in a single season without running for a touchdown? The player was the 4th pick of the draft in 1976. A knee injury sidelined him for his entire rookie season. For a different team, he ran for 956 yards in 1978. He caught a league-high 82 passes in 1979. With yet another franchise, he went to two Super Bowls. answer »
