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 »

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 »

Around the NFL: Cowboys kicking some worn tires

We've floated the thought that Joseph Randle could be pretty good for the Cowboys this year. He was respectable in limited action a year ago, and he's running behind a great offensive line. If he wins the starting job, he could rack up plenty of yards and touchdowns in the Dallas offense.   more »

Fantasy News: James White

We did the Mock Auction for the magazine the other night. I did just OK. I messed up a couple of things – caught driving the price up a few times, and froze up and didn’t bid on a few guys. My team’s OK.   more »

Factoid: Geno Smith

New Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey says that there's no quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick. "Right now, Geno is the starter, and the way we expect it to be," he said. So Smith should be behind center in Week 1.   more »

Trivia: May 21, 2015

Who are the only two players to score more than 3 TDs in a playoff game? One of these players scored 5 TDs, and the other scored 4. The games occurred 20 years apart. answer »

Factoid: Placekickers

The NFL has altered the extra point. It’s moving them back to the 15-yard line, meaning they’ll be like a 32- or 33-yard field goal. They’ll re-assess this rule at the end of the season (then likely keep it for future years). I posted some numbers last week in which I speculated the success rate would be about 95-96 percent.   more »

Ian Allan: 4.5 or 4.6? Or does it matter?

Do we all make too much of 40 times? It’s nice if a guy runs a 4.4, and it’s worrying if he runs a 4.6, but in a lot of cases it doesn’t ultimately seem to matter. Jerry Rice, most famously, ran a 4.6 back in the ‘80s.   more »

Factoid: Super Bowl hangover

The Patriots are coming off a Super Bowl win, but their defense (along with their reputation) has taken some hits in the offseason. Three of its top cornerbacks are gone, as is nose tackle Vince Wilfork. Is this a defense to count on in the fantasy world anymore?   more »
