Around the NFL: Lions receivers

I have some interest in Amon-Ra St. Brown, the wide receiver the Lions drafted in the fourth round. Not so much because I’m wowed by what he did at Southern Cal, but I like the situation he’s in.  more »

Around the NFL: Offensive lines

Back in 2019, the Broncos thought they'd secured the right tackle position for years to come when they signed JaWuan James from Miami. Not so much: James played in only 3 games that season before getting hurt, opted out of 2020, and will now miss most (probably all) of 2021 after tearing his Achilles.   more »

Seattle this year drafted only three players. What’s the only team that’s ever picked even fewer players in a draft? answer »

Factoid: 49ers running backs

San Francisco seems to have the most convoluted running back situation in the league. They drafted a pair of guys who have some potential to start, but they’ve also got some capable veterans.  more »

Around the NFL: Terrace Marshall

I'm intrigued by Carolina second-rounder Terrace Marshall. The Panthers had a credible (albeit touchdown-poor) passing game under Matt Rhule and Joe Brady last year; Brady joined the team after coordinating Louisiana State's National Champion in 2019. Marshall was part of that team, catching 13 touchdowns. He caught 10 more in just seven games in 2020.   more »

Trivia: May 4, 2021

On Nick Saban’s watch, seven Alabama wide receivers have been chosen with first-round picks: Julio, Amari, Ridley, Jeudy, Ruggs, Waddle and Devonta Smith. Prior to Saban showing up, who was the only Crimson Tide wide receiver to be selected in the first round in the Super Bowl era? The majority of readers will have never heard of said player, so for that group, they can instead sub in the name of the best-known quarterback who completed passes to this player in college. answer »

Factoid: Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins drafted Jaylen Waddle on Thursday, and previously signed Will Fuller, so they’ve added some explosive weapons to their receiving room. But do they have the right quarterback to bring those guys to life?  more »

Andy Richardson: Mocking the rookie dynasty draft

It's that time of year again: NFL Draft is complete, rookie drafts in dynasty leagues can start when ready. Mine is this weekend, a three-round affair in a PPR league that starts 1 quarterback, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE and 2 RB-WR-TE flex spots. It's also TE-premium (1.5 points per reception), so you won't be surprised at how early Kyle Pitts goes.   more »

I like what Denver’s doing. With the defense they’re putting together, that’s a team to watch.   more »

Factoid: Elijah Moore / Kadarius Toney

It looks like a good year for rookie wideouts. There were 15 drafted in the first three rounds; 5 in each. Two of the more intriguing ones were selected by the New York teams, with the Giants taking Kadarius Toney in the first round and the Jets grabbing Elijah Moore (pictured) just 2 picks into the second.   more »

Trivia: May 2, 2021

The Bengals and Dolphins selected quarterbacks with top-10 picks a year ago (Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa) and now have picked receivers who caught passes from those guys in college (JaMarr Chase, Jaylen Waddle). What are the only other three teams that have gone to the same school two drafts in row with top-10 picks? The most recent involves a pair of defensive linemen from a team that won a national title (the QB from that college team was picked No. 1 overall). Another pair includes a linebacker who was involved in a gigantic trade in the ‘80s. With the original pair, one of the players is now more infamous than famous. answer »

Around the NFL: Javonte Williams

I like the look of Javonte Williams. He’s a fun back, with the way he initiates contact and runs people over. Reminds me of Marshawn Lynch.   more »

Around the NFL: Rookie running backs

If you were watching the NFL Draft last night, you might have been wondering where all the running backs were. It was a historically thin group, with a total of four selected by the end of Round 3. That was the fewest taken in the first three rounds since 2016, which itself was the lowest number ever. Disappointing for the key position in fantasy leagues.   more »
