Trivia: April 7, 2019

Who’s the only running back who’s scored more touchdowns than any other running back on his team in each of the past five seasons? answer »

Factoid: LeVeon Bell

The Jets gave LeVeon Bell a big contract. Now, can they be trusted to properly use him? It’s a lesser team, and their new coach, Adam Gase, tended to underuse running backs in Miami.  more »


Around the NFL: Cowboys lock up Lawrence

Dallas did a deal with pass rusher Demarcus Lawrence yesterday. He'd said he wouldn't play under the franchise tag again, and now he won't have to. Dallas gave him $105 million over the next five years with $65 million in guarantees. It's a sweet deal, for one of the league's more consistent pass rushers.   more »


Trivia: April 6, 2019

Jordy Nelson has retired. Who are the only three receivers who finished their careers with more seasons with 1,200-plus yards and 13-plus touchdowns? answer »

Factoid: John Brown

I’m looking some at the Buffalo Bills today, and I like the signing of John Brown. They like to throw deep, and he adds another speed weapon into that offense.   more »


Factoid: Kansas City Defense

How much stock should be placed in last year when choosing a fantasy defense? This question seems most pertinent when looking at Kansas City, which finished last year as the No. 2-ranked fantasy defense (1 point for sacks, 2 for takeaways, 6 for TDs). The odds of repeating that seem remote.   more »

Trivia: April 5, 2019

Who is the only active wide receiver who has played multiple seasons with four different franchises? This veteran has spent multiple seasons with four different teams. To clarify: Jared Cook has played with four teams, but he spent only one year in Green Bay, so he’s played multiple years with only three different teams. answer »


Factoid: Greg The Leg

I’m not sure how my kicker board will shake out. Too early for that. But Greg Zuerlein will be in the top tier.   more »


Around the NFL: Let's go, Buffalo

We can seldom say for sure which team did best in free agency. Until these guys play a game, team moves being either good or bad is a matter of opinion. But we can say which teams did most, and thus far it's the Buffalo Bills who have been most active.   more »

Trivia: April 4, 2019

Twenty running backs last year carried the ball at least 175 times. Who was the only one of those players with only one run of 20-plus yards? All but one of the others had at least four such plays. The answer will surprise you. answer »

Around the NFL: Raiders ink Grant

The Raiders have signed Ryan Grant to a one-year deal, and it’s an underwhelming addition. At best, he’ll be a lesser third receiver.   more »

Around the NFL: Russell Wilson

Story out yesterday that Russell Wilson is looking for a new contract. He's earned one, certainly, though I wonder if that factored into a crazy rumor here in New York a few weeks back that the Giants were looking to trade for him. Most likely, Seattle and Wilson will work something out, and he'll be their quarterback for a long time to come.   more »


Trivia: April 3, 2019

The Broncos selected Paxton Lynch with a first-round pick, and he started only four games for them. Lynch was out of the league last year and is currently trying to win a roster spot with Seattle. Among quarterbacks chosen in the first round in the Super Bowl eara, who are the only two who finished their careers with even fewer career starts? Both of these players are connected to the Bay Area. answer »


Fantasy News: Love for Latavius

I think I’ll probably be drafting Latavius Murray in a lot of leagues. With how the Saints use their running backs, I expect he’ll outperform the No. 1 running backs on some of the league’s lesser teams.   more »
