Factoid: Nick Chubb

The Browns signed Kareem Hunt earlier this offseason, and that's probably going to have some cool on Nick Chubb in fantasy drafts. Hunt's suspended for the first eight games, of course, but he's a talented guy who led the league in rushing in 2017, which gives the team a viable alternative come midseason should Chubb struggle or get hurt.   more »


Trivia: April 14, 2019

Len Dawson and Johnny Unitas are both Hall of Famers. What team originally drafted (and unloaded) both of these men, before they spent the bulk of their careers with the Chiefs and Colts, respectively? answer »


Factoid: Alvin Kamara

The Saints have been putting up some pretty insane rushing numbers – 26 TD runs last year, and 23 the previous season. In this century, only two offenses have scored more rushing touchdowns in two-year periods.  more »

Factoid: Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes threw 50 TDs last season, and the case can be made (is being made by some) that there's no reason to think he'll decline. Same coach, same offense, same skill players around him. Could he throw the same number of touchdowns (or more) a year from now?  more »


Trivia: April 13, 2019

Forrest Gregg passed away at 85 on Friday. He was a Hall of Fame offensive tackle with the Packers, and he also coached that team for four years in the ‘80s. Who are the only other four men who were Hall of Fame players for teams during the Super Bowl era, then later spent at least a season as head coaches for those same franchises? answer »

Around the NFL: Hogan's zeroes

Carolina has signed Chris Hogan to a one-year deal, but I don’t think anyone should be rushing to adjust their draft boards. I don’t think he’ll wind up playing much of a role.  more »


Around the NFL: Deon Cain

Saw a story this week where Chris Ballard was talking about second-year wideout Deon Cain. The Colts drafted him in the sixth round a year ago, but he tore his ACL in the preseason. Ballard says Cain showed flashes before the injury, and thinks he has tremendous upside.   more »

Trivia: April 12, 2019

True or false? Baltimore scored more rushing touchdowns last year when Joe Flacco was starting at quarterback. answer »

Factoid: Ravens runners

The Ravens have signed Mark Ingram to a nice free agent contract. But does that mean that he’s going to come in and be their featured runner, putting up top-15 numbers? Not necessarily.  more »


Around the NFL: Aaron Rodgers

A lot of Aaron Rodgers stuff in the news lately, thanks to a story by a former Packers beat reporter that laid out a fairly ugly history between Rodgers and former coach Mike McCarthy. The involved particulars are denying it, predictably, and maybe the story motivates Rodgers to have a huge season. He's due for one, anyway.   more »


Trivia: April 11, 2019

Who’s the only tight end in NFL history who’s gone over 1,000 yards receiving in his rookie season? answer »


Factoid: Running quarterbacks

I find Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson to be compelling quarterbacks. With both players, they look very likely to finish with difference-making rushing production. But they both also look pretty certain to finish with among the worst passing numbers.   more »


Andy Richardson: Running backs, final year of college

Josh Jacobs is expected to be the first running back chosen in the NFL Draft later this month. It's not a given, however, that he'll be a first-round pick, certainly not selected as early as Saquon Barkley, Leonard Fournette and Ezekiel Elliott in recent years. He'll be drafted by the end of Day 2, certainly, despite a relative lack of college production.   more »


Trivia: April 10, 2019

Pittsburgh had two top-5 receivers in the second half of last season: Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster. That’s using standard scoring and looking at the final eight games for each team. What is the only other team that had two top-20 receivers in the second half of the season? The answer will surprise – no, shock – you. answer »


Factoid: Ravens tight ends

Before starting my deep dive on the Ravens, my expectation was that it was probably best to stay away from this team’s passing game entirely. John Brown, I knew from when I was working on the Bills, caught only 10 of 33 passes for 128 yards in the eight games Lamar Jackson started. But things didn’t play out quite like I expected.  more »
