Around the NFL: Cleveland Browns

Earlier in the offseason, the Cardinals were thinking about turning Andre Ellington into a slot receiver. Now the Browns are mulling the same kind of move with Duke Johnson Jr.   more »

Andy Richardson: Falcons Defense

In NFL terms, the Falcons weren't a special defense a year ago. Only seven teams allowed more yards, and only five allowed more points. But the Falcons had a quality group in most fantasy scoring systems a year ago, and should in 2017, too.   more »


Trivia: July 24, 2017

Jay Ajayi last year went over 200 yards in consecutive games against the Steelers and Bills. Who are the only other three running backs who've run for more than 200 yards in back-to-back games? Hint: all three won the Heisman, and two played their college football at the same school. answer »


Fantasy News: Fanex Auction Draft

I like auctions. They are a much more equitable way of dividing talent. Shouldn’t everyone, for example, have a shot at drafting David Johnson? But as people get more skilled at bidding, it becomes a lot harder to dominate in this format.  more »


Around the NFL: Arizona Cardinals

Carson Palmer says his arm is fresh and lively after getting plenty of rest in the offseason. Palmer says he thinks he made the mistake last year of doing too much in the offseason workouts.   more »

Around the NFL: Carolina Panthers

The Panthers have been in the news lately for the wrong reasons. Speculation about a Greg Olsen holdout, and the firing of GM Dave Gettleman (he was replaced by the failed GM he himself replaced, Marty Hurney).   more »

Around the NFL: Tyrell Williams

It was surprising when the Chargers selected Mike Williams at No. 7 overall. Wide receiver seemed to be a position they were in good shape at, with Keenan Allen returning from injury and Tyrell Williams posting a breakout season. And now it looks even less likely that the rookie will be able to steal any production away from the returning wideouts.   more »

Around the NFL: Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals have re-signed Chris Johnson, which essentially sticks a fork in the potential fantasy value of other possible backup running backs: Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington (recently moved back to running back) and T.J. Logan. But it doesn't mean Johnson rates a roster spot.   more »


Trivia: July 21, 2017

What’s the only team that’s never allowed a 200-yard rusher in a game? In the 1998 season this defense allowed Marshall Faulk to run for 192 and James Allen (Bears) to go for 163. Nobody else has run for 160 yards against this franchise. answer »


Viva Murillo!: Zeke Freak Out

Cowboys star running back (and sophomore fantasy superstar) Ezekiel Elliott's name was tied to an alleged domestic violence issue last year. He was allegedly involved in an assault incident at a Dallas bar this past week. He even got a speeding ticket! The incidents have become and indictment on Elliott, Jerry Jones, the Cowboys organization and the NFL itself. Elliott is dominating the news in July. And that's exactly why we shouldn't draft until August.   more »
