Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

For me, I think it’s best to use strength of schedule information in November and December each year. You see how teams play in the first half of the season (giving you a significant amount of current data) and then plug those numbers into the back half of the schedule.  more »


Around the NFL: Marcus Mariota

A likely suspension for Jameis Winston has been the big NFL news story lately, but the quarterback selected just after him in the 2015 NFL Draft was discussed this past week also, for different reasons. Jim Wyatt of was impressed by what he saw at OTAs.   more »

Factoid: Quarterback turnovers

A pair of notable quarterbacks were traded in the offseason: Alex Smith and Tyrod Taylor. With both guys, I like their ability to take care of the football.   more »


Around the NFL: Mike Evans

We wrote about this yesterday, and now Adam Schefter is reporting it: Jameis Winston will be suspended to start the 2018 season, possibly for as many as three games. It hasn't yet been handed down officially, and there will be an appeals process, but if you're drafting tonight (yes, some actually are) you need to be prepared for Winston to miss the first three games.   more »


Trivia: June 22, 2018

Among wide receivers chosen in either the first or second round in the Super Bowl era, who are the only three with last names including hyphens? Two of the players are active.

Around the NFL: Jameis Winston

When the magazine comes out, Jameis Winston's lofty ranking might surprise some readers. But while his season-long numbers weren't terribly impressive, recall that he suffered a shoulder injury that sidelined or limited him for six games. When fully healthy, he was awfully productive. But sounds like he'll need to be moved down a little due to a suspension.   more »

What are the only two divisions that haven’t gone head-to-head in a Super Bowl game (none of the teams in the AFC division have ever played any of the four teams in the NFC division in a Super Bowl game)? answer »

Factoid: Goal-line rushing

In fantasy leagues, we tend to gravitate towards the running backs who will be featured around the goal line. We want the guy who’s going to punch in the 1- and 2-yard touchdowns. But those kind of players are rare. Reality is you don’t see a lot of teams consistently going to the same runner in goal-line situations.  more »


Around the NFL: Ageless Adam Vinatieri

Adam Vinatieri is 45 years old, but there are records in sight and the hopes of winning a fifth Super Bowl. For either or both of those things to come to pass, he'll need to keep playing a few more seasons. The kicker tells he'll be doing just that.   more »

Around the NFL: Packers running backs

Green Bay had three different running backs with some fantasy appeal at various points last year. Those players return in 2018, and early indications are a probable headache for fantasy teams. Might be tough to extract much value out of any one of them this season.   more »
