Ian Allan: Rookie RBs

There were 11 running backs selected in the first three rounds of the draft, setting up some interesting decisions for fantasy teams. Do you take the big swing on the upside of a rookie? Or is it better to bank on the value of experience?  more »


Around the NFL: Devonta Freeman

Couple of stories circulating yesterday with Seattle talking to veteran running backs. Chris Carson is coming off hip surgery, and Rashaad Penny blew out his knee late last season. Carson is expected to be ready for Week 1, Penny isn't.   more »


Trivia: May 21, 2020

Three former Alabama backs last year ran for over 1,000 yards: Derrick Henry, Mark Ingram and Josh Jacobs. What is the only school that has had more 1,000-yard rushers in a season? For the quartet of players, one is still active. answer »


Factoid: Deshaun Watson

Show of hands. Who’s going to make Deshaun Watson one of the first five quarterbacks selected? He’s been great, but he’ll be going without DeAndre Hopkins this year.  more »


Andy Richardson: DaeSean Hamilton

Rookie enthusiasm sometimes goes too far, and I'm as guilty of it as anyone. We all get excited about the shiny new toys underneath the tree. But sometimes the previous year's toys are still good, which might be the case with DaeSean Hamilton.   more »


Trivia: May 20, 2020

What is the largest U.S. city (by population) that does not have its name on a team in the NFL, NBA, NHL or Major League Baseball? answer »


Factoid: Browns reboot

The Browns are looking to get their offensive line fixed. They gave Jack Conklin a big contract, and they used the 10th pick of the draft on Jedrick Wills. That should nail down the two tackle spots. Or will it?   more »


Around the NFL: Roethlisberger Rebound?

It's been surprising to me how little fondness there is for Ben Roethlisberger in early rankings and drafts. He finishes outside the top 15 in the Experts Poll, and wasn't particularly coveted in either of our draft or auction competitions.   more »


Trivia: May 19, 2020

What was the original name of the Detroit Lions? answer »


Factoid: Good as Gould

Robbie Gould didn’t get as much love as I expected in the Experts Poll. To me, he’s definitely one of the four kickers in the top tier. Others didn’t like him as much.  more »


Around the NFL: Philip Rivers

The Colts are all in on Philip Rivers this year. They signed him to a one-year deal, but it's for $25 million, and Frank Reich thinks that's just the start of his tenure with the team. He's apparently "very optimistic" Rivers will be with the team for longer than that.   more »


Trivia: May 18, 2020

If the Patriots were to sign Cam Newton, it would set up the possibility that they would have two quarterbacks from the same university both start games in the same season. (Jarrett Stidham also went to Auburn.) What was the last NFL team to do this? Unfortunately, neither of the quarterbacks is notable. At all. One is a former fifth-round pick who started 18 career games for three different teams. The other is a former second-round pick who also played for three teams, starting 21 games. They went a combined 1-5 for a team in 2011. answer »

Russell Wilson, Seahawks (29%)
Dak Prescott, Cowboys (25%)
Matt Ryan, Falcons (9%)
Deshaun Watson, Texans (8%)
Kyler Murray, Cardinals (29%)

Factoid: Mecole Hardman

Who’s in on some Mecole Hardman. Dude got downfield for a lot big plays last year. Looks like an up-and-comer.  more »
