Fantasy News: Revised team projections

We’re two weeks in. Too early to be panicking or over-reacting, but we also now have a better sense of what teams are all about – they’ve played an eighth of their games. So adjustments of expectations are in order, both on the player and team levels.  more »

Around the NFL: Coleman probably headed for IR

It's been a rough start for the first receiver drafted two years ago. First Corey Coleman followed up his breakout game (5 catches for 104 yards and 2 TDs) against Baltimore by missing the next six games with a broken hand. And now, after quickly establishing a rapport with Cleveland's rookie quarterback, he's going to be sidelined for an extended period again.   more »

Factoid: Kearse looking surprisingly decent

Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

Big stories of Week 2 were either injuries (there's a surprise) or ugly running back stat lines. LeSean McCoy, Ezekiel Elliott, Jordan Howard, Melvin Gordon and Christian McCaffrey, to name but a few, had comically low rushing totals. Just a few yards more than LeGarrette Blount, who didn't even get a carry.  more »

Around the NFL: Bradford looking highly unlikely

Sam Bradford had about the game of his life against the Saints on Monday. A week later, due to concerns over his surgically repaired knee, it looks a lot more likely that he'll sit out than start against the Pittsburgh Steelers.   more »


Factoid: Running games stuck in neutral

If you thought the running games were pretty feeble in Week 1, you’re not wrong. Teams averaged under 93 rushing yards. In the last 15 years, that’s never happened before. I don’t have the numbers from earlier seasons handy, but that might have been the least productive running weekend in the modern history of the league – not worst Week 1, but the worst week period.  more »

Around the NFL: Beckham questionable for Monday night

Factoid: Teams with struggling running games

Lots of poor running performances in Week 1, with 12 teams running for under 70 yards. The entire league combined scored only 19 rushing touchdowns. Should we all be running away from these offenses? Or will be good percentage of them turn things around?   more »
