As we’re walking into our drafts, we need to keep in mind the big-picture reality that many of these teams will be radically different this year. That is, at least a few of the teams that were really good last year will have lousy years, and at least a few of the seemingly crappy teams will be big surprises.   more »


Around the NFL: Andrew Luck

The Colts gave Andrew Luck a huge contract in the offseason, and they've used a lot of recent draft picks to try and upgrade the offensive line and protect him. So far, though, it doesn't look like they've succeeded.   more »

Around the NFL: Josh Gordon

Most fantasy teams will willingly take LeVeon Bell in the second round (or perhaps the first) even knowing he'll miss the first three games of the season. That's the kind of difference-maker he is when on the field. So how early do you draft Josh Gordon?  more »

Factoid: Sixth-round wide receivers

A couple of days ago I took a look at recent sixth-round running backs, like possible Ryan Mathews handcuff Kenjon Barner.

As you head into your draft, I want to share a few last-minute tips that might give you an edge. I've condensed them into a handy acronym: F.A.I.L. Clever, right?
