Factoid: George Kittle

If you’re looking for unusual, historic receiving stats, best to consider the 49ers. I posted charts featuring Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk in recent weeks, and there’s a similarly impressive stat takeaway for George Kittle.   more »

Factoid: The Big Collapses of 2023

It can be hard to remember who finished the previous season strong and who didn't - unless they were on your fantasy team, of course. I took a quick look back at how the 2023 season shook out for fantasy's top names as we came down the home stretch and singled out the guys who really wheezed to the finish line.   more »


Around the NFL: Jared Goff

The Lions signed Jared Goff to a huge new contract extension this week. Even Detroit couldn't have imagined it would work out this well for them when they took his previous contract off the Rams' hands in the Matthew Stafford deal. But Goff has been a lot better than anyone anticipated.   more »


Trivia: May 17, 2024

What university’s students, including members of the football team, rioted against the Ku Klux Klan 100 years ago today, inspiring the school’s nickname? answer »

Factoid: CeeDee Lamb

I’m going with CeeDee Lamb has the top receiver on my board, and the decision making was easier than I expected. There are a bunch of elite-type receivers, but Lamb was way better than all of them for most of last season.   more »


Andy Richardson: Notes on the NFL schedule

The NFL schedule was released last night, which is always fun. And lately frustrating, as the schedule-makers deliver choices which kind of mess with a lot of big fantasy leagues. I know, they don't have to care about us. Rest assured, they don't.   more »


Trivia: May 16, 2024

Marvin Harrison was the fourth pick of the draft. Who is the only other active wide receiver who was a top-4 pick overall in the draft? answer »

Factoid: Garrett Wilson

I am ready to double down on Garrett Wilson. He was supposed to be the breakout receiver last year, and I think all of that reasoning still applies. Pair him with an adequate quarterback, and I think he’ll be just fine.  more »


Factoid: Ravens running backs

This week's flyer I took in my dynasty league is Ravens' running back Rasheen Ali (pictured). The fifth-rounder out of Marshall tore his bicep at the Senior Bowl, a factor in him falling to Day 3 of the draft. There's a lot to like, though, both player and landing spot.   more »


Trivia: May 15, 2024

Jacoby Brissett likely will be starting for the Patriots in Week 1. He last started for them in 2016 – eight years ago. What quarterback once went 14 years between starts for a team? This other quarterback was a third-round pick; he did his most notable work with a different franchise, in one season throwing a team-record 29 touchdown passes. answer »


Around the NFL: Jahmyr Gibbs

After poking and adjusting the numbers, I decided to make Jahmyr Gibbs the No. 4 running back on my board (for PPR scoring, anyway). I think he’s the safest choice. And I think he’s looking a little safer today after comments made by the team’s GM, Brad Holmes.  more »


Factoid: The Hot Finishers in 2023

We tend to get swept up by the guys who start the season with big numbers. It's not hard to understand why: The season is new, yesteryear is quickly becoming a distant memory, and guys like Puka Nacua, Raheem Mostert and Sam LaPorta are rocketing fantasy teams to the top of the standings.  more »


Around the NFL: Marquez Valdes-Scantling

The Bills signed Marquez Valdes-Scantling yesterday, which means it's time for my annual post expressing bafflement as to how this guy keeps getting new contracts. Seldom has there been a wide receiver to do less while continuing to see opportunities in favorable situations, year after year.   more »


Trivia: May 14, 2024

Who was the last tight end chosen with a top-15 overall pick who caught more than 3 touchdowns in his rookie season? answer »


Factoid: Rookie receivers

With Puka Nacua and Amon-Ra St. Brown having had big rookie seasons in recent years, I’m guessing there will be more willingness in fantasy drafts to use some picks on lightly regarded receivers. One need not be a first-round pick to thrive right away at the position.  more »
