Andy Richardson: Hype all over the place

I have a journalism background, and I have a lot of respect for what team beat writers do. They're covering players who by and large don't have a lot of desire to talk to them, and trying to extract meaningful information from coaches who act like it's important to shroud everything they do in great secrecy and mystery. And of course they're giving us regular folk glimpses into practices -- which is sometimes useful. And sometimes not.   more »



Kansas City WR Watkins “all over the place”

Kansas City is having new wide receiver SAMMY WATKINS learn all of the wideout positions as they move him “all over the place” in the offense.

Factoid: 2018 free agency

It looks like a lean offseason for wide receivers. Unlikely that any will be any selected in the top 10 of the draft (maybe none in the top 20). And there aren’t any can’t-miss superstars who are available in free agency.  more »



Watkins frustrated by role in Rams offense

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver SAMMY WATKINS is frustrated with his role in the offense after making just one catch for 17 yards in the past two weeks. While his lackMore of production is partially due to quarterback JARED GOFF spreading the ball around, Watkins and his fantasy owners have greater expectations.
