Factoid: Third-round quarterbacks

There was a story recently that the new decision-makers for the New York Giants consider 2017 third-round quarterback Davis Webb "an afterthought." They're planning to start Eli Manning in 2018, at the very least, and maybe beyond that. They might also draft a quarterback at No. 2 overall.   more »

Factoid: 100-tackle rookies

Working a little bit with the defensive files, it's clear that 2017 wasn't a great year for rookie defenders. We ran the thing on Reuben Foster last week, who was fairly productive in his 10 games (but has some off-field concerns). And then of all the other rookies, none reached the 100 tackle level last season.   more »

Factoid: Goal-line receiving

The Dolphins have to decide whether to apply the franchise tag to Jarvis Landry. He’s been a productive possession receiver, but they’ve got other players at that position.

Factoid: Kicker injuries

It was a weird season for kickers, with lots of injuries and roster changes – far more than we typically see. It was particularly unusual coming off the previous year, which featured unprecedented stability at the position.   more »

Around the NFL: Ravens defensive coordinator signs on with Tennessee

Retirement isn't what it used to be. Just weeks after Baltimore Ravens coordinator Dean Pees hung it up for Baltimore to (reportedly) spend more time with his family, he's decided to join the Titans new coaching staff as its defensive coordinator. Fantasy-wise, it seems like he can only make things better for this defense.   more »

Factoid: The amazing Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson played in only seven games before tearing his ACL, but he set the NFL and the fantasy world on fire.

Taking a look back on his shortened 2017, it was still one of the more amazing rookie campaigns by a quarterback.   more »
