Around the NFL: Ken Walker

A report out of Seahawk OTAs yesterday is that Rashaad Penny is dealing with a hamstring injury. Ordinarily not a big deal, with it being May, but it prompts a raised eyebrow given Penny's poor career track record of durability. And has me thinking about rookie Ken Walker.  more »

Fantasy News: Running on empty

I always get nervous when drafting running backs paired with quarterbacks who are great runners. Jalen Hurts, Josh Allen, Cam Newton. With quarterbacks of that ilk, there’s always the fear that they’re going to run in all of the short touchdowns on their own. On the other hand, a mobile quarterback can help to open things up, with defenses having to respect that threat.  more »


Factoid: Allen Robinson

It's tough for Super Bowl champs to repeat, and I think it's going to be difficult for the Rams. They have Sean McVay and a lot of great offensive pieces, but they have a lot of questions, too.  more »

The NFL started in 1920. What two franchises out of those 14 still exist today? answer »

Factoid: Rookie receivers

Somebody in the comments section (Robert S, I think) was asking about rookie receivers, and whether any of them will post top-40 numbers. I think I can answer that one. Yes, definitely.  more »


Defensive Notes: T.J. Watt

In IDP leagues, for those who compete in them, it can be hard to get pass-rushing linebackers too high relative to the guys who are racking up 130-plus tackles. The pass rushers generally have a bigger impact on the game, but they're recording half as many tackles (at most). But T.J. Watt is an exception.   more »

Factoid: Najee Harris

With Najee Harris, I like the workload. They give him the ball plenty, virtually guaranteeing he’ll put up good numbers if he can stay healthy.  more »


Around the NFL: Saquon Barkley

Saquon Barkley is going to be an interesting case in fantasy leagues this season. No one disputes the talent, but he's been an injury-prone disappointment his last two seasons. With a new coaching staff and offseason to rest up, can he deliver strong numbers?  more »

What’s the only division that’s never had a kicker score 145 points in a season? answer »

Factoid: Packers sans Adams

I wonder how much the Packers will miss Davante Adams? Great receiver, of course, but they’ve played without him in the past, and the offense hasn’t fallen apart.  more »


Around the NFL: Robert Woods

There was a story yesterday that Robert Woods is feeling great in his recovery from a torn ACL. "I actually feel like they're holding me back a bit," he says in a story at the team website. If so, he might turn out be a very underrated 2022 wideout.   more »


Trivia: May 20, 2022

Carson Wentz has played for Philadelphia and Indianapolis the last two years. Now he’s with Washington, putting him in the rare position of starting quarterback for three teams in three years. In the 16-game era, who are the only two quarterbacks who have gone one further, starting (at least half the season) for four teams in four years? answer »

Factoid: Sophomore QBs

There’s a lot of depth at quarterback – plenty of great prospects. But there will also be some notable players at the position that people aren’t thinking as much about. Specifically, second-year players.  more »
