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 »

Factoid: Adrian Peterson

With Adrian Peterson, a big component of his projection is settling on his production in the passing game. While it’s run to kick around whether he’ll run for 1,200, 1,500 or 1,800 yards, his production as a receiver will have a huge factor on his value (especially in PPR formats).  more »
