Your 2 Cents: The Next Kamara

Draft experts and dynasty enthusiasts alike were stunned in April when Detroit selected Jahmyr Gibbs 12th overall. The Alabama running back was expected by most to go early in the second round or maybe sneak into the back end of the first. Even more surprising was a few days later when it was reported by Tom Pelissero that the Lions (had they not traded back) would have taken Gibbs with the No. 6 pick – even before Bijan Robinson.  more »

Around the NFL: Justyn Ross

The more I think about it, the more I think Justyn Ross might be worth a late-round pick. Kansas City has a wide-open situation at wide receiver, making it seem plausible that Ross could wind up with a meaningful role.   more »


Around the NFL: Vikings running backs

A guy that's not getting interest in line with past production in early fantasy drafts is Dalvin Cook. That's understandable, since it's been a foregone conclusion for months that the Vikings are going to get rid of him. Will backup Alexander Mattison (pictured) step in and start putting up good numbers? We'll see.   more »


Trivia: June 2, 2023

Christian McCaffrey last year ran for 1,139 yards while playing for two different teams. He started the season with Carolina, then was traded to San Francisco. Who is the only player in the NFL history who’s run for even more yards in a season while playing for two different teams? answer »

Factoid: High-volume backs

When a running back handles a big workload, does that make him a player we should be trying to pick (because he’s proven he can handle the wear and tear of the position)? Or is it best to stay away from such players (figuring that they are overdue to break down)?  more »

Around the NFL: Antonio Gibson

There's a story out talking about Antonio Gibson. The Commanders running back, it seems, has been impressing at OTAs with his receiving ability. This is not exactly surprising, given that Gibson was a wide receiver in college, but it's something to pay particular attention to given the team's current depth chart and new offensive coordinator.   more »


Trivia: June 1, 2023

It’s looking like the Panthers could have new starters at every offensive skill position. They drafted Bryce Young and Jonathan Mingo, and they signed Miles Sanders, DJ Chark, Adam Thielen and Hayden Hurst. In this vein, in the 32-team era, what are the only two teams that have had five new skill-position players start in over half of their teams’ games? Both of these teams, like Carolina, selected a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. answer »


Ian Allan: 2023 win totals

Poking around with the betting lines and the over-under win totals, I’ve got an early favorite for the 2023 season. Arizona is listed at 5.5 wins, and that one looks awful tempting – the kind of number we should all be getting in on before the general public realizes just how bad the Cardinals are going to be (with the number dropping).   more »


Factoid: First-round wideouts

Minnesota first-rounder Jordan Addison is missing time at offseason training activities due to an undisclosed minor injury. This is not a big deal; it's still May, for a few more hours. But it seems as good a time as any to point out that a rookie impact can't be taken for granted.   more »


Trivia: May 31, 2023

What was the last NFL team to have a 1,000-yard rusher and a receiver with 1,000-plus yards, who both played their college ball at the same school? It happened in 2019. Both players were active in the NFL last year, but with different teams. answer »

Factoid: Chuba Hubbard

I like Chuba Hubbard. I think he’s one of the better insurance-policy running backs available in drafts this year.   more »

Defensive Notes: Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins defense was a disappointment in both NFL terms and in fantasy leagues a year ago. It brought in a new defense coordinator in Vic Fangio, and it also added some news players. Most notably, Jalen Ramsey.   more »


Trivia: May 30, 2023

In each of the last three years, four NFL teams have been led in rushing by running backs who played their college football at Alabama. Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, Najee Harris and Brian Robinson. (And Alabama actually gets up to 5 players in 2021 if Jalen Hurts is included.) What are the only other two schools in the 32-team era who’ve had four different running backs lead teams in rushing in the same year? answer »


Around the NFL: Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo has a foot injury that could jeopardize his ability to be ready in Week 1. He might not even be on the Las Vegas roster. Why was it, again, that the Raiders got rid of Derek Carr?   more »
