Factoid: Who's in on Eli?

I’m not a big Eli fan. I don’t know if he can play anymore. He’s not mobile, I don’t know if he can throw downfield anymore, and he’s trying to work behind a lesser offensive line. But I think he deserves some consideration this week.  more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: The Week 7 edition of Fantasy Index Weekly is available

DALLAS (at Washington)
The Cowboys put up a season-high 40 points last week, but we're expecting a return to bottom-10 production this week. Their offense has been struggling, with just 7 TDs in its other five games, and Washington's defense has been ...   more »

Andy Richardson: Tight end quagmire

It's not your imagination; the tight end position has been a train wreck this season. A couple of stars have played like stars, and a couple of youngsters either have or are emerging (Kittle, Njoku). But the vast majority have either gotten hurt or been just plain bad.   more »


Trivia: October 17, 2018

Buffalo won the 1965 AFL Championship, winning 23-0 at San Diego. (So if the Super Bowl had began a year earlier, it would have featured the Bills playing against the Packers.) At that title game, held at Balboa Stadium, what company introduced a new car at halftime? answer »


Fantasy News: San Francisco run game

Call me crazy, but I kind of like Raheem Mostert. He’s got some giddyup, and the 49ers can run the ball. They’ve also got a very favorable schedule for the run coming up.   more »

Around the NFL: Russell Shepard?

Passing production is at an all-time high. This is especially true, it seems, if you face the right defense. Kansas City and Tampa Bay (just fired its defensive coordinator) are giving up over 350 yards per game. The Saints, Falcons, Steelers and Bengals are all giving up over 300 yards per game. It's nuts, but the result is that some no-name wideouts are going to be viable in weekly matchups with these teams.   more »

What are the only three teams that have never had a quarterback throw 30 touchdown passes in a season? answer »


Viva Murillo!: Quitters Sometimes Win

Losing any game is tough. But some circumstances make it hurt a little more. A touchdown vulture denying your starter. A Hail Mary that connects, giving your opponent the win. Facing Tyreek Hill this past weekend and watching your lead slowly evaporate. Those are all bad. But none are quite as bad as losing to a team that doesn't even have a complete starting lineup.   more »
