Trivia: February 2, 2019

With Todd Gurley and Sony Michel, the most productive running back for both Super Bowl teams might come from the same college – Gurley and Michel both played their college ball at the University of Georgia. When was the last time this happened in a Super Bowl (standard fantasy scoring)? One of those running backs carried only 4 times for 13 yards – his more notable production came as a pass catcher. Hint: Both running backs might play in 2019. answer »

Factoid: Robert Foster

At times last year, wide receiver seemed to be a glaring need for the Buffalo Bills, but they have a pair of youngsters they might be able to rely on in coming years. Zay Jones was a lot better in his second season, and they may have stumbled onto something special in Robert Foster.   more »

Andy Richardson: Super Bowl Prop Bets

I love looking at Super Bowl prop bets, even if it's just to laugh at the goofy ones. (Length of National Anthem?) I am not a professional gambler, so take the following predictions with a grain of salt. If these can help you win your local party pool, though, you're welcome. Remember, Tails never fails. Except when it does. The fewer dumb-luck bets the better, that's what I say.   more »

Trivia: February 1, 2019

Brandin Cooks played in the Super Bowl last year for New England, and he’ll play for the Rams in this year’s game. Who is the only wide receiver who’s played in Super Bowls for three different franchises? The player is a former second-round pick, and he played in one Super Bowl for three different teams, winning one of them. All three games occurred in this century, and all three were decided by double-digit points (one win, two losses). answer »

Factoid: Derrick Henry

At this point, I’m spending the vast majority of my time on preliminary work for the 2019 season – that’s my focus, rather than the Super Bowl. And as I pick through the stats for the Titans, I notice that they have been slow to embrace Derrick Henry.  more »

Factoid: Tyrell Williams

After the Super Bowl on Sunday, the focus will shift to free agency, and Tyrell Williams looks like he’ll be one of the most intriguing options. He’s good enough that he’ll be a starter somewhere, but it doesn’t seem like the Chargers will be able to re-sign him.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: Overall Rankings

We've previewed both teams playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, and now it's time to merge the rankings and see who the best prospects will be. The quarterbacks will score the most fantasy points, but the projections are similar enough that -- depending on scoring -- one of the lead running backs or perhaps Julian Edelman should be selected first.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: Los Angeles

Difficult to see the Rams winning this game. The Patriots are best at stopping the run (which is what the Rams have been doing well lately). And their defense might not be good enough to slow down a multidimensional New England offense. There's a chance, it seems, that New England moves the ball at will and wins by 10 points or so.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Super Bowl LIII Preview: New England

I think most of us hardened, borderline cynical NFL observers expect the Patriots to win this one. They've been there before -- many times -- so have the huge experience edge, while the Rams might be just happy to be there, as they say. But similar things were said about Eagles-Patriots a year ago, and we know how that turned out. So better to keep an open mind.   more »

Trivia: January 29, 2019

Who are the only three players who have caught touchdowns for two different franchises in Super Bowl games? One of these should be pretty easy for most. The other two were formerly teammates. They caught touchdowns in the same Super Bowl game (one of them caught a touchdown in a Super Bowl two years earlier, and the other caught one in a game three years later). answer »
