Around the NFL: Doug Baldwin

Did the Seahawks just overpay Doug Baldwin? He’s a solid pro and played well last year, but $46 million over the next four years seems like a lot for a player with ordinary size and speed. Baldwin wasn’t even drafted back in the day, making the team as an undrafted free agent.   more »

Around the NFL: Titans offense

The Titans ranked 25th in rushing a year ago, but they're looking to change that. They traded for DeMarco Murray and drafted Derrick Henry in the second round. They're going to be a smashmouth (exotic smashmouth, whatever that means) offense in 2016.   more »

Around the NFL: Washington running backs

Alfred Morris is gone to Texas, so second-year back Matt Jones is installed as the starting running back in Washington. But Jones was unimpressive enough last year that his backup running back is of interest in fantasy leagues, if we can determine who that player will be.   more »

Factoid: Anquan Boldin II

I see that there was some kicking around of where Anquan Boldin might sign. He’s looking for work, and I suppose some team will bring him in for a look this summer. But Boldin will be 36 in October, and it’s unusual for receivers that age to be productive (especially big lumbering guys who can’t run anymore).  more »


Around the NFL: Anquan Boldin

Anquan Boldin is 35 years old and unemployed, but he says he wants to play another season. With training camps opening in about a month, he could catch on with a team in need of an additional wide receiver. Maybe the Giants?   more »

Yes (0%)
No (0%)
Don't know / not sure (0%)

Around the NFL: Detroit Lions

In fantasy drafts, you’ll see owners use late-round picks on guys who might not even play. Josh Gordon and Justin Blackmon last year, for example. Calvin Johnson is one of those guys. He’ll be 31 in September, and if he were to come back, he might wind up being a top-10 receiver.  more »


Factoid: Rookie running backs

We've been hearing for years about the devaluation of the running back position. It shows up in free agent contracts most running backs get, and it shows up in the draft. Fewer are selected in the early rounds than used to be. That was definitely the case in 2016.   more »
