Around the NFL: Jared Cook

Multiple reports, including from Cook himself, have Jared Cook close to signing with the Saints. If and when he does, the Saints will have by far their best pass-catching tight end since Jimmy Graham roamed the Superdome. New Orleans might have forgotten to make the position a big part of the passing game, however.   more »


Trivia: March 21, 2019

What team in the last 10 years has been led in TD catches by 10 different players? answer »

Factoid: Mike Williams / touchdown receivers

Mike Williams had the weird season last year. He caught only 43 passes, but 11 of them went for touchdowns. Over a quarter of his catches were touchdowns. Can he be counted on in 2019?   more »


Around the NFL: Cobb to Cowboys

Dallas signed Randall Cobb yesterday, an anticipated move as they try to fill the vacated slot receiver spot that's been manned by Cole Beasley in recent years. Cobb brings a veteran presence and experience to the lineup, but not a lot else. Definitely nothing in the way of after-the-catch ability.   more »


Trivia: March 20, 2019

In this century, who are the only three undrafted running backs who have run for over 1,000 yards in their rookie season? answer »


Factoid: Sophomore quarterbacks

In the last two years, some of the best picks at quarterback have been guys in their second seasons. Patrick Mahomes, Mitchell Trubisky, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz all outperformed expectations. Can Sam Darnold be one of those guys?   more »


Around the NFL: Jimmy Garappolo

Working on the offensive line story for the magazine, I was surprised to see how poorly some numbers reflected on San Francisco's line. They've got a good pair of tackles in Joe Staley and last year's first-rounder Mike McGlinchey, Weston Richburg is a serviceable center, and they recently re-upped with their guards. So troubling to see that only Houston allowed more hits on their quarterback last year than the 49ers.   more »


Trivia: March 19, 2019

Only six times have offenses featured two players both catching 100-plus passes in a season. What is the only team that has done this twice? answer »

Fantasy News: Sophomore tight ends

George Kittle blew up in his second season, breaking the single-season record for receiving yards in a season. I don’t think there’s a Kittle-type player sitting out there this year, but there are some tight ends coming off solid rookie seasons.   more »


Around the NFL: Ryan Fitzpatrick to Dolphins

A day after trading Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins have signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to be their starting quarterback. There's some thought that Miami doesn't really want to win much in 2019; lose a bunch of games and select a franchise quarterback atop next year's draft. If so, it's debatable whether "Fitzmagic" will help or hurt that cause.   more »


Trivia: March 18, 2019

Ryan Fitzpatrick has signed with Miami, putting him in position to perhaps become the first quarterback to start games for eight different franchises. Who are the only other two quarterbacks who’ve started for seven teams? One of these quarterbacks started a Super Bowl game. The other has a cousin with the same last name who started in three Super Bowls. There’s one franchise where all three of these seven-team quarterbacks have started games. answer »


Fantasy News: The Book On Eli

The Giants gave Eli Manning a $5 million bonus. Looks like they’re going to pay him $17 million this year, and it looks like he’s going to get another season as a starter. (We’ll see what the do in the draft; maybe they draft a quarterback who takes over during the season.)  more »


Around the NFL: Ravens Defense

The Baltimore Ravens have had a top fantasy defense for quite a while, but counting on them for 2019 looks questionable. The young offseason has already brought plenty of changes to the 2018 group, with more still to come. It's not the same defense anymore.  more »


Trivia: March 17, 2019

Among quarterbacks who started at least half of last year, who averaged a league-low 10.1 yards per completion? Not one of the first dozen quarterbacks that most would guess. answer »
