Factoid: Second-year tight ends

I saw somebody asking about Josh Oliver yesterday, wondering whether he’s worth a roll of the dice with a last-round pick. Oliver is the tight end Jacksonville selected in the third round last year, but he hardly got on the field because of injuries. Is he a better choice than Tyler Eifert?  more »


Factoid: First-round wideouts

The NFL Draft is an inexact science; we know this. First-rounders bust every year, at every position. But evaluations seem particularly shaky at wide receiver, especially recently.   more »


Trivia: March 27, 2020

Tennessee last year scored on 34 of its 45 possessions in the red zone – almost 76 percent. In the last 10 years, what is the only offense that has scored on a higher percentage of its red zone possessions? answer »


Fantasy News: Teddy Bridgewater

What exactly are the Panthers getting with Teddy Bridgewater? He went 5-0 as a starter last year, but with modest numbers.  more »


Around the NFL: Tyler Eifert

The Jaguars have signed former Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert, and it's a pairing that makes a lot of sense considering player strength and team need. Eifert, when healthy, has been one of the league's better tight ends at getting in the end zone, while Jacksonville has been the league's worst team at throwing touchdowns to those players.   more »


Trivia: March 26, 2020

Lamar Jackson finished last season with a combined 43 touchdowns – 36 passing and 7 rushing. Who are the only active quarterbacks who have had a season with even more combined touchdowns? answer »


Around the NFL: Veteran RB backups

A pair of veteran running backs have landed with new teams in recent days – Dion Lewis to the Giants, Peyton Barber to Washington. Expectations should be low for both.  more »


Factoid: Breshad Perriman

Probably the two best wideouts remaining on the free agent market signed yesterday. Robby Anderson agreed to a deal with Carolina, and hours later it was reported that Breshad Perriman agreed to a slightly cheaper deal with the team that lost Anderson, the Jets.   more »


Trivia: March 25, 2020

Cordarrelle Patterson has run for over 100 yards the last three years for three different teams – Raiders, Patriots, Bears. Originally a first-round pick by Minnesota, Patterson had multiple seasons there with 100 rushing yards, too. Who was the last other wide receiver who had 100-yard rushing seasons for different teams? answer »

Around the NFL: Pats axe Gostkowski

The Patriots have released Stephen Gostkowski. That puts them in the market for a kicker while officially ending the highest-scoring run by a player at that position in league history.  more »


Around the NFL: Marcus Mariota

Oakland signed Marcus Mariota yesterday, to a two-year deal worth over $17 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed in 2020. Make no mistake: this is backup quarterback money. The only starting quarterbacks who will make less than him this season are on their rookie deals. But it does present competition for Derek Carr.   more »

Factoid: Sanders, part 2

I’m a day late, but let me chime in on Emmanuel Sanders. I do have a couple of thoughts on him landing with the Saints.  more »


Andy Richardson: Waiting for Winston

I'm surprised that no one has signed Jameis Winston. I get that he throws a lot of interceptions, so NFL decision-makers have a different perspective on the guy than me, a fantasy football writer. But if you can set aside the turnovers (and clearly Bruce Arians couldn't), he's been pretty impressive.   more »


Trivia: March 23, 2020

Ravens, Saints, Bucs, Seahawks, Cowboys and Kansas City. What was the only other offense last year that finished with 30 touchdown passes? answer »
