Around the NFL: Sterling Shepard

Strange to say, with the Giants having a lesser passing game, but they've had a crowded receiving corps to try to sift through. It's less so today, with the news that Sterling Shepard tore his ACL at the end of last night's game, and is out for the year.   more »


Viva Murillo!: Commissioner is King

The weirdest thing about the ascension of King Charles III after the death of his mother was the discussion of his "duties." Because the truth is, he has none. I mean, he has things he's supposed to do. Technically, he has to give his assent to bills passed by Parliament, but that's basically a formality. A royal hasn't refused such assent in more than three centuries. But in reality, the United Kingdom keeps going no matter who holds the title of king or queen. They're a figurehead with no power, overseeing an organization that doesn't really have much use for them anymore. Unfortunately, the same can be said for the commissioner in most fantasy leagues.   more »

Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

Kind of a weird day in the NFL. A number of favored, juggernaut-looking teams the first couple of weeks, like Kansas City and Buffalo, repeatedly shot themselves in the foot in losses. Then there were the low-scoring slogs that were painful to watch, resulting in some lower-scoring fantasy matchups, too. Sometimes people say defenses are ahead of offenses; right now more accurate to say offenses are behind defenses.  more »

Trivia: September 25, 2022

Stefon Diggs led the league in receiving yards in 2020. He was drafted by the Vikings, but his 1,535-yard season came after a trade to Buffalo. In the last 20 years, who is the only player who’s led the league in receiving yards after leaving his original team?

Dynasty Leagues: Oh, Henry

Have we seen the last greatness out of Derrick Henry? He’s closing in on 29, and he’s trying to run behind an offensive line that’s a shell of what it’s been in the past. He averaged under 2 yards per carry on Monday night, and he finished short of 4 yards per attempt in the opener against the Giants.   more »
