Factoid: Ladd McConkey

It's easy to look at an offense where not one, but both of the top receivers have moved on to greener pastures ('Gang Green'-er in Mike Williams' case) and assume that the incoming almost-first round pick is going to have all the work he could want. But I think that forecast could use a splash of cold water.  more »

Factoid: Pocket passers

Working on the quarterbacks, I am reminded that I like quarterbacks who can move. You get a quarterback who might run for 600-plus yards and a half dozen touchdowns, and there’s more potential to maybe land something special. There’s a limited ceiling with the guys who need to do it all through the air.   more »

Factoid: Bo Nix

Michael Penix's selection at 8th overall was the biggest surprise in the first round of the draft, but Bo Nix being picked at 12th was only slightly less surprising. Most draft observers viewed him as either a second-rounder or at best a late-first -- not a top 12 pick.   more »

Trivia: May 8, 2024

The Saints are the only team that once selected three 1,000-yard rushers in the same draft. Who were these three players? (One got his 1,000-yard season for another team.) answer »

Factoid: Rookie kickers

Three kickers went in the sixth round of the draft. When a team uses a selection on that position, it’s with the expectation that he’ll probably win the job.   more »

Factoid: Zack Moss

I participated in an experts draft the other night. First draft of the year, always fun to see how real-world people view players. There were some surprises, the biggest of which was the total lack of interest in Zack Moss.   more »

Factoid: Ben Sinnott

There’s a tendency to get too excited about rookies. Especially at tight end. While some of these players selected in the second, third and fourth rounds will hit, a lot more of them won’t make much of an impact – especially in their first season.   more »

Andy Richardson: Rookie Draft Recap

My main dynasty league held its annual rookie draft over the weekend. Always one of the best parts of the season, as those of us who have hung onto our picks unwrap our shiny new presents for the upcoming season. There were picks both predictable, and surprising.   more »

Factoid: Rookie receivers

The Bills traded down twice before selecting Keon Coleman. Does that mean they knew he would be there? Or did they not really care which wide receiver they would be selecting at No. 33 overall?  more »

Factoid: Late-round quarterbacks

Rookie drafts are going on in a lot of dynasty leagues this weekend, and it's been weird to me seeing guys like Spencer Rattler selected, even in Superflex formats. No offense to the guy, but while there are exceptions, it's pretty rare that NFL teams let quality starting quarterbacks slip to the fifth round.   more »

Factoid: Jonathan Taylor

I like Jonathan Taylor. I like the talent, and I like the offense he’s in.   more »

Factoid: Theo Johnson

It's hard to get excited about the Giants offense. Daniel Jones is coming off injury, and wasn't playing well even prior to getting hurt. The Giants were reportedly hoping to draft Drake Maye to replace him. But I do see a potential flier on their roster.   more »
