Factoid: Patrick Mahomes

Kansas City plays at Denver this week, and there may be some thinking about sitting down Patrick Mahomes. Unlikely, but possible, with Denver currently having one of the league's best defenses, currently ranked in the top 3 in both yards and points allowed.   more »


Viva Murillo!: Houston, You Have a Problem

The NFL is known for its commitment to parity, but it has a few bad teams as well. The fans know it, the coaches know it, and the team knows it, too. They don't have the talent, the schemes, or the management support to be competitive. Right now, four teams have three wins or fewer, though they're in different mindsets. The Broncos thought they were in win-now mode, but are reminded weekly how mistaken they were. The Bears expected to struggle, but they have a young quarterback who needs more weapons. And the Rams were a championship team that fell apart rather quickly. All of these scenarios are disappointing, but understandable. Then there's Houston. Whatever you do, whatever your record, don't finish out the fantasy season like the Texans.   more »

Factoid: Purdy Boy

I am interested in Brock Purdy. Not so much because of his individual ability but because of the situation he’s being dropped into. They’ve got a lot of pass-catching talent in San Francisco, along with a puppet-master Jedi to bring it all together.  more »


Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

There have been better days of football. Some offenses are just out-and-out bad these days, and others were hurt by injuries during the course of yesterday's contests. As expected, most of the late-afternoon games were good yesterday, but they were overshadowed (also as expected) by an ugly primetime affair. Let's get through them and move on.   more »

Around the NFL: Odell Beckham

Odell Beckham is talking with the Cowboys, Bills and Giants – seemingly close to picking a 2022 team. But I will be surprised if he makes much of an impact (either in the regular season or in the playoffs). I don’t think he’s an elite pass catcher right now.  more »


Around the NFL: Last-minute Sunday morning updates

Kickoff of the early games is just 30 minutes away, but a few last-minute news and notes (but no great surprises). Most notably, Joe Mixon (concussion) is not expected to be able to play in the late games, so time to switch in Samaje Perine or an early option, if you have one available.   more »
