Around the NFL: Washington signing Peterson

I am not a big fan of Adrian Peterson (who is joining Washington). He’s 33 years old, and that’s awfully long in the tooth for a running back. Everyone hits the end of the road.  more »

Andy Richardson: Updating the rookie class

When we put together the Rookie story for the magazine, it's basically sight unseen. We have college tape and combine performances to go on, but no actual preseason work. Now we've got a couple of those games to work with, and while it's far too soon to make any final judgments, I'll take a quick pass through the incoming rookies, the top 5 at each position, in order of their magazine rankings.   more »

Around the NFL: Brian Schottenheimer

The Seattle Times printed a feature on Brian Schottenheimer. He’s now running the Seahawks offense, and he says he was told early on that getting the running game going was the No. 1 goal.   more »


Around the NFL: Second-round wide receivers

When a wide receiver is selected in the second round, you can at least think about them making an immediate impact. A couple of weeks into the preseason, it looks like a mixed bag for the six wideouts selected in the second round back in April.   more »

Fantasy News: Trading down for Kareem Hunt

I’ve selected another team, in the Fanex league (competing against 11 other industry analysts). So another chance to look at how a draft unfolded and what I maybe should have done differently.  more »


Around the NFL: Josh Allen

AJ McCarron broke his collarbone last night, and that's probably a season-ender. Put it this way, the Bills won't be holding a spot on the 53-man roster for AJ McCarron. The odds of Josh Allen starting right away have naturally increased; it will be either him or Nathan Peterman.   more »


Trivia: August 18, 2018

What two teams in this century have selected four wide receivers in the first round of the draft, with none of those players ever having a 1,000-yard season at the NFL level? As luck would have it, these teams are playing against each other today. answer »

Mailbag: August 17, 2018

Ian Allan answers your fantasy football questions. Extended dance-mix version. Scoping out Washington's backfield post-Guice. Why Jarvis Landry is better than Josh Gordon. Speeding up the snail pace of an auction. And much, much (much, much) more. more »


Around the NFL: Jeremy Hill

We've all been burned by Patriots running backs. But they can reward fantasy teams handsomely, too, as LeGarrette Blount showed a couple of years ago, and Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead did (if you had them at the right times). Is Jeremy Hill now on that track?  more »


Trivia: August 17, 2018

The Patriots selected Sony Michel in the first round. Back in 1998, they used a first-round pick on running back Robert Edwards, who also played his college ball at Georgia. Since the merger in 1970, what is the only team that’s used two top-5 picks on running backs from the same school (not just first-round picks, but choices in the top 5)? answer »
