Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

One of my favorite movies from recent years (yes, I consider the 90s recent) is Apollo 13. At one point during the film, when everything is going wrong with the spacecraft, Ed Harris says to the mission control crew, "What do we have on the ship that's good?" "We'll have to get back to you, Gene." That's kind of how I feel about Super Bowl LIII.   more »

Factoid: C.J. Anderson

The Patriots are favored today, but not by a lot -- a Rams upset is certainly possible. Perhaps the key will be a guy who wasn't even on the roster two months ago, No. 2 running back C.J. Anderson.   more »

Admittedly, there's not much left to say, right? We previewed the game. A dozen experts laid out how they think it will go down. We pulled out some random factoids on players, took a deep dive into all the prop bets, and discussed it ad nauseam. Just play the thing already!  more »

Andy Richardson: Super Bowl Prop Bets

I love looking at Super Bowl prop bets, even if it's just to laugh at the goofy ones. (Length of National Anthem?) I am not a professional gambler, so take the following predictions with a grain of salt. If these can help you win your local party pool, though, you're welcome. Remember, Tails never fails. Except when it does. The fewer dumb-luck bets the better, that's what I say.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: Overall Rankings

We've previewed both teams playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, and now it's time to merge the rankings and see who the best prospects will be. The quarterbacks will score the most fantasy points, but the projections are similar enough that -- depending on scoring -- one of the lead running backs or perhaps Julian Edelman should be selected first.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: Los Angeles

Difficult to see the Rams winning this game. The Patriots are best at stopping the run (which is what the Rams have been doing well lately). And their defense might not be good enough to slow down a multidimensional New England offense. There's a chance, it seems, that New England moves the ball at will and wins by 10 points or so.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: New England

I think most of us hardened, borderline cynical NFL observers expect the Patriots to win this one. They've been there before -- many times -- so have the huge experience edge, while the Rams might be just happy to be there, as they say. But similar things were said about Eagles-Patriots a year ago, and we know how that turned out. So better to keep an open mind.   more »

Rams win Super Bowl in Madden NFL 19 simulation

The Los Angeles Rams beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, 30-27, in an EA Sports Madden NFL 19 simulation of the big game. The Madden simulation was wrongMore last year when it predicted that New England would beat Philadelphia, but it has recently been hitting on an every-other-year basis. Less

Factoid: Rams Defense

Two seasons in a row, the Rams have had the league's 3rd-ranked fantasy defense (in a scoring system that awards 1 point for sacks, 2 for takeaways and 6 for touchdowns). In those years they ranked 3rd and 5th in takeaways and 15th and 4th in sacks, led by star Aaron Donald (pictured). But that hasn't translated to shutting down opponents.   more »
