Around the NFL: Tua Soon?

Miami is entering its bye week, but the Dolphins won't stay out of the media cycle. They're benching veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick in favor of rookie Tua Tagovailoa. This was inevitable, but it's a little surprising it's happening while Fitzpatrick is playing well.   more »


Trivia: October 20, 2020

Previously we pointed out that Cincinnati has selected two quarterbacks No. 1 overall (Carson Palmer, Joe Burrow) and given the jersey No. 9 to both of them. What are the only other two teams that have issued the same jersey numbers to two different quarterbacks selected No. 1 overall. For each of these other two teams, they didn’t draft the quarterbacks involved (picking them up later in their careers). None of these quarterbacks won more than 20 games with these teams. answer »

Viva Murillo!: Bad Call?

The only difference between the right call and the wrong one is whether it worked or not. It sounds obvious, but it's also one of the maddening things about fantasy football. You can pour over data all week, seek advice from multiple sources, trust your gut, and still start the wrong guy. You can also pay no attention to the matchups, use old information, make a silly decision and have it pay off. The latter is always a genius and the former is always a fool. And we have plenty of chances to be both every weekend.   more »

Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

Sometimes you make the decisions that you're pretty confident are right, but they aren't. DeVante Parker against the Jets, Aaron Rodgers against the Bucs, Minnesota against Atlanta. Easy. Players don't need to get hurt (or even, in the case of Parker, have their team lose or struggle) to disappoint. Week 6 was like that around the league.   more »


Trivia: October 19, 2020

When was the last time an AFC Championship game featured two quarterbacks who are now in the Hall of Fame? (Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will be in the HOF someday, but they're not there yet, so that's not the answer.) answer »

Trivia: October 18, 2020

Joe Burrow is wearing No. 9 for the Bengals. Previously the Bengals selected another quarterback No. 1 overall, Carson Palmer, and he also wore No. 9. What is the only other franchise that has selected two players No. 1 overall and given them the same jersey number? Typically with this kind of question, it’s not asked unless there’s a timely reason. answer »
