Around the NFL: Larry Fitzgerald

There was a story over the weekend that Larry Fitzgerald, Hall of Fame wideout for the Cardinals, is expected to retire before the 2021 season. It's not a surprise, but it's the first confirmation we've been given that the 37-year-old was likely done playing.   more »

Factoid: Unheralded receivers

In the last 50 years, only three wide receivers (with at least 20 targets) have averaged over 15 yards per pass play. Two of them, oddly, came from last season. Tyron Johnson of the Chargers and Donovan Peoples-Jones of the Browns.  more »

Factoid: Jimmy Graham, Part II

Yesterday I ran a fairly unflattering item on Jimmy Graham, pointing out that he hasn't been a big part of the passing game for three different teams in the last four seasons. And that's true, and maybe the Bears could do better things with the money they're paying him in 2021. But in fairness, the guy is pretty good at scoring touchdowns.   more »

Trivia: April 4, 2021

What’s the only team that has two running backs on its roster that both carried the ball at least 20 times inside the 5-yard line last year? answer »

Factoid: Carson Wentz

I like it when a quarterback is used regularly on sneaks at the goal line. It’s a way to pick up some cheap production. And it’s another reason, I think, that Carson Wentz looks pretty appealing in drafts this year.  more »

Factoid: Jimmy Graham

A few weeks back the Bears released cornerback Kyle Fuller, much to the benefit of the Denver Broncos, who immediately signed him. Chicago needed the cap room, so they didn't have much choice in the matter. But it's harder to explain why they still have Jimmy Graham on their roster.   more »

Who was the last wide receiver to go over 1,000 receiving yards for the Philadelphia Eagles? answer »

Ian Allan: Jalen Hurts

I have been mulling Jalen Hurts some. His rushing stats will be really good, but his passing stats will be something much less than that. Where does that leave us?  more »

Around the NFL: Browns Defense

The Cleveland Browns haven't been big players in free agency, but they did make a couple of nice signings, I think. Both on the defensive side of the ball, both from the Los Angeles Rams. Both in an area of need, too.   more »

Trivia: April 2, 2021

Marshall Faulk (1999-2001) and James Brooks (1988-1990) once had three straight seasons where they carried the ball over 100 times and averaged more than 5.0 yards per carry. Who are the only other two running backs who have done this since the merger in 1970 (not just one season, but three consecutive)? Both are active players, the streaks are active, and they play in the same division. answer »

Fantasy Baseball Index: Baseball: Reserve list difference-makers

Editor's note: Our Fantasy Baseball Index Cheat Sheet rankings are more aggressive than those of our competitors on many players who will start the year in the minors or on the injury list – most notably Carlos Carrasco, Miles Mikolas, Chris Sale (pictured), Daulton Varsho and Luke Voit. Many of these players will be available to draft later (or purchase for less) than our rankings suggest.   more »

Factoid: Christian McCaffrey

I haven’t stacked an overall board yet; I’m just working my way through teams and players, trying to carefully put together projections. But when it comes time to settle on a No. 1 overall player, Christian McCaffrey will be in the discussion.   more »

Around the NFL: Tyler Lockett

The Seahawks gave Tyler Lockett a four-year, $69 million extension yesterday. Securing his services for years to come makes some sense, with Lockett performing among the best players at his position the last three years. Even if it doesn't always feel like it.   more »
