Factoid: Defenses

I’m not a big fan of scoring systems that give bonuses for shutouts. There just aren’t enough of them. The way the NFL game is structured nowadays, it’s really hard for a defense to keep an opponent from scoring for an entire game.   more »

Around the NFL: Big Fun?

The track record of big, slow wideouts isn't particularly good in the NFL, but that didn't stop Kelvin Benjamin a year ago, and maybe it won't stop Devin Funchess, either. Carolina drafted Funchess in the second round, and just maybe he'll start right away.   more »

Always lots of positive talk at training camps. Coaches are always talking guys up, and everyone seems to be in career-best shape and headed for a career year. But Adrian Peterson takes it to another level.   more »


Factoid: Chris Johnson

There's some talk lately about free agent running back Chris Johnson signing with the Dallas Cowboys. It's an exciting idea for fantasy owners: the Cowboys have the league's best offensive line and nearly produced a 2,000-yard rusher last year, while Johnson rushed for 2,000 yards back in 2009.  more »
