Andy Richardson: Rookie backups

I don't usually wind up with the top rookie running backs on my roster. People draft them early, usually too early, selecting them as if they're going to be the next LaDainian Tomlinson or Kareem Hunt, even though a lot has to go right for that to happen. I like to take stabs at the later guys.   more »

Factoid: Cleveland receivers

In the magazine, we’ve got an Experts Poll, a Mock Draft and a Mock Auction. And as I see those coming together, it’s becoming apparent that most everyone likes Cleveland’s wide receivers a lot more than I do.  more »

Around the NFL: Blake Jarwin

The Cowboys said goodbye to Jason Witten in the offseason, again. Two years ago, they tried to replace him with a committee. This year it will be Blake Jarwin, taking a leading role in what was one of the top passing offenses a year ago. Can Jarwin be a breakout player?  more »

Factoid: Courtland Sutton

There are a lot of good No. 1 wide receivers in the league; a lot of go-to guys. Most would agree the best two are Michael Thomas and Davante Adams. After that, a lot of the No. 1s will also lose some looks to very good No. 2s. A possible exception is Denver's Courtland Sutton.   more »

Factoid: 2nd-year QBs

In each of the last three years, the key pick at quarterback has been a second-year guy. Lamar Jackson last year, and Patrick Mahomes and Carson Wentz before him. Can Kyler Murray keep this trend going?   more »

Factoid: Second-round wide receivers

There were six wideouts selected in the first round this year, and seven more in the second. I notice that three of the teams that drafted wide receivers early this year also used early picks last year: San Francisco, Indianapolis and Philadelphia. Deebo Samuel was a hit; Parris Campbell (pictured) and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside weren't. Should people be giving up on last year's disappointments?  more »

Factoid: Kyle Rudolph

Around the NFL: Carlos Hyde

The Seahawks signed Carlos Hyde yesterday, the culmination of their reported efforts to add a veteran running back (their first choice was apparently Devonta Freeman, who unwisely turned them down). Hyde puts the journey in journeyman -- Seattle is the 5th team he's been with since 2018, if you can believe that.   more »
