Factoid: CeeDee Lamb

CeeDee Lamb wasn’t the most disappointing player of the 2021 season, but he belongs on any list of the many players who fell far short of expectations. In his second season, he was supposed to emerge as a top-10 type receiver, and that simply never happened.   more »

Factoid: Joe Burrow

In a playoff competition where you can only start each player one time, I'm thinking about using Joe Burrow this week. He's a great young quarterback, of course, but there are a lot of great quarterbacks playing this week -- highlighting why teams are willing to give up so much to land such players.

Viva Murillo!: Don't Forget to Forget

Watching Josh Allen throw for five touchdowns on Saturday night, I was reminded of my enthusiasm for his fantasy prospects back in August. When I drafted him, this is what I wanted to see. I just didn't want to see it in January. Allen was pretty good during the season, but not exactly a superhero in the stat box. And that's the Allen I have to remember; not the guy who humiliated Belichick in the wildcard round. While we can enjoy what we're seeing on the field, we have to take care not to let that enthusiasm carry over when the next draft or auction rolls around.   more »
