Factoid: Cam Newton

Tough day for Cam Newton and the Panthers. They had the surprising 34-10 win at Arizona, but now it’s clear there are still major flaws with this offense.  more »

The last-minute injury updates are coming in, and if you're hoping to use a questionable player, it looks like you'll be in luck. Conversely, if you were hoping one of them would be inactive, making an alternative choice look more promising, it appears you'll be disappointed.   more »


Trivia: November 28, 2021

Marshall Faulk (1999-2001) and James Brooks (1988-1990) once had three straight seasons where they carried the ball over 100 times and averaged more than 5.0 yards per carry.

Dynasty Leagues: Long-term TE rankings

The decision making gets more difficult in dynasty leagues, where you need to measure not only what a player’s doing this year, but what he might be a few seasons down the road. And it’s particularly tricky at tight end, where some of the best options are in the later stages of the career.  more »

Andy Richardson: Thanksgiving Recap

Thursday football isn't a novelty anymore, but there's still something special about these Thanksgiving Day games. (We could probably do without the night games.) Watching them in a family setting takes me back to past Thanksgivings and past football classics on that day, including Leon Lett, Jerome Bettis and (dating myself) Walter Stanley. Thanksgiving football is great, even when it's bad.   more »
