Around the NFL: Devonta Freeman-Tevin Coleman

The Falcons parted ways with Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers, leaving Devonta Freeman atop the depth chart. But they drafted Tevin Coleman in the third round, making for one of the key camp battles to watch this preseason.   more »

Trivia: May 27, 2015

Terrell Owens has 15,934 receiving yards while playing for five different teams. But who are the only two receivers with over 6,000 career yards who played for even more teams during their NFL careers? Hint: Neither of these players is active; they both caught touchdown passes in Super Bowls. answer »

Factoid: Jets quarterbacks

Call me crazy, but I kind of like Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick. I expect one of them could be a top-15 level quarterback for a good chunk of the season. Chan Gailey (the new offensive coordinator with the Jets) has a really good track record with quarterbacks, and New York has a nice pair of wide receivers – Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.   more »

Around the NFL: Peterson drama not going away

When Adrian Peterson wasn't traded leading up to or during the NFL Draft, the general feeling was that he'd mend fences with the Vikings and return to them this season. A few weeks later, though, it doesn't look like an end to his absence from the team is in sight.   more »

Factoid: Weather and extra points

There’s been a little bit of talk that with the next extra point rule, it will unfairly discriminate against kickers from teams with harsher weather conditions. Teams in the northeast, the theory goes, see more adverse weather, so they might be more inclined to skip the harder PAT and try for a 2-point conversion.  more »

Around the NFL: Matt Jones

Alfred Morris holds a special place in the heart of some fantasy teams and Fantasy Index readers. The sixth-round pick came out of nowhere a few years back to lead fantasy teams to titles and help Washington into the playoffs.  more »

Factoid: Spiller and Forsett

I like the potential of C.J. Spiller and Justin Forsett this year. Not so much as runners, but as pass catchers. They might both catch 70-plus passes.   more »

Factoid: The Patriots taketh away

Plenty of reasons have been given for New England's run of success over the last dozen years. Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Bob Kraft, and of course no shortage of allegations of cheating. But one big one has been the defense's ability to force turnovers.   more »

What college player led his team to a national title (winning the Heisman), then won a Super Bowl the next season in the same building? He scored touchdowns in both games. answer »

Factoid: Tre Mason

The Rams have two viable backs, I think. They’ve got Todd Gurley, who was the 10th pick of the draft. Having taking him that high, they obviously think he’ll be special. And they’ve got Tre Mason, a former third-rounder who ended last year as their starter.   more »

Recently we posted a factoid about rookie runners, noting that Cincinnati's Jeremy Hill was the only one to go over 1,000 rushing yards last season -- the only one over 800 yards, in fact...  more »

Factoid: Kickers / extra points

I like the extra point rules change. It will have the desired affect, I think. They will still be a pretty much automatic play, but moving them back 13 yards will definitely generate some misses. Enough misses, I think, that folks will stick around to watch after touchdowns, especially in game-tying situations.   more »
