Viva Murillo!: Cam You Delay Your Draft?

Okay, sorry about the puns. But if there was a period of time that proved drafts and auctions need to be scheduled closer to the regular season, this is it. The fantasy landscape at the end of July has changed a lot since Independence Day, and if you had an early draft, you might already be second-guessing a strategy that made sense just a few short weeks ago.   more »

Aaron Rodgers is close to an agreement that will bring him back to Green Bay for the 2021 season, but as part of the deal, he wants the team to trade for Randall Cobb. What the … ?  more »


Around the NFL: Darnell Mooney

The Bears have Allen Robinson as their franchise wideout (for now), but you'd expect there to be room for a quality No. 2. That will be Darnell Mooney, who the team has talked up in the offseason and who zoomed past Anthony Miller for that role a year ago. He's even more locked in after Miller was traded to Houston over the weekend.   more »

Trivia: July 26, 2021

Peyton Manning is a former No. 1 overall pick who started in a Super Bowl for a team that didn’t draft him.

Around the NFL: Dede Westbrook

The Vikings have signed Dede Westbrook, and that’s a modestly interesting signing. The Jaguars gave up on him last year, but I have been a fan of his work previously.  more »

Charles Woodson will soon be inducted in the Hall of Fame. He joins the small fraternity of players who’ve been able to both win the Heisman Trophy and make it to Canton. Who are the only other six players who’ve won the Heisman during the Super Bowl era and also been enshrined in the HOF? answer »

Factoid: Second-round receivers

The hit average on wide receivers selected in the second round hasn’t been great, but it’s at least been on the rise in recent years, with guys like DK Metcalf, A.J. Brown, Chase Claypool and Tee Higgins.  more »


Around the NFL: Blake Jarwin

Blake Jarwin was queued up to be the No. 1 tight end in Dallas a year ago, but he tore his ACL in the opener. He's healthy now, and practicing with the team at the start of training camp. It makes him look like a viable target for those who pass on the top options at the position.   more »

George Young is being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year (he was a member of the 2020 class, but he’s actually going in now). With the Giants, Young won The Sporting News’ “Executive of the Year” award five times. Who is the only other person who’s won this award more than twice? answer »

Around the NFL: Michael Thomas

So 2020 was a lost season for the 1st wide receiver drafted in most fantasy leagues. A year after setting the NFL receptions record, Michael Thomas was limited to just 7 games after an early-season ankle injury than lingered all year (there was a hamstring issue and team suspension factored in). All behind him? Well, no.   more »

The player won a Super Bowl title and has been a coach with seven different NFL teams. answer »
