Four Bold Predictions for the 2017 Season

Now that the NFL season is nearly here, it's time to put away our spreadsheets and calculators, and let's rip a few bold predictions. I think that in order to be considered bold, a prediction has to be unlikely, so I'm not expecting a great success rate here. On the other hand, these aren't ridiculous... Read More

Do Wide Receivers Need a Top QB to Have a Dominant Fantasy Season?

Wide receiver is the premiere fantasy football position, so figuring out which WR are likely to produce at a high level is an important endeavor. One factor that could affect WR performance is quarterback play. Should we worry about receivers who are stuck with weak QBs? What if the WR or QB changes teams? Should we... Read More

Cam Newton to Undergo Shoulder Surgery

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is scheduled for shoulder surgery to repair what is reported to be a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. If reports are accurate, Newton should be ready in time for training camp. Even though it looks like he'll be ready for the start of the season, the injury... Read More

Bears Sign Benny Cunningham

The erstwhile Ram finds a new home in Chicago. Cunningham has never gotten a lot of work, but he's done okay with what he's gotten. He's averaged 4.4 yards per carry in his career, and is also a decent pass catcher. The deal is reported to be for one-year, so at this point it doesn't... Read More

Tyler Lockett Recovery Ahead of Schedule

ESPNs Mike Clay tweeted that Lockett's recovery is ahead of schedule. It's good news for Lockett, and for Seattle, but be careful not to over value Lockett in fantasy leagues. He's dynamic and electrifying but has averaged just three catches per game in his two seasons. Looking only at games in which he's appeared, Lockett... Read More

Buffalo Bills Sign Andre Holmes

Buffalo's on again, off again courtship of Holmes was finally consummated yesterday, as they signed the 28-year old WR to a three-year deal. Buffalo let Robert Woods go in free agency, and Holmes has a shot to replace him as the starter across from Sammy Watkins. Holmes showed some promise in 2014, hauling in 47... Read More

Doug Martin Completes Rehab

Suspended last year for a PEDs violation, Doug Martin checked himself into rehab. It's a good move on Martin's part, but Tampa Bay hasn't firmly committed to giving him back his workhorse role. Martin's suspension keeps him on the shelf for the first three weeks of 2017, and more importantly voids the guarantees in his... Read More

Seahawks Re-Sign Luke Willson

Luke Willson is returning to the Seahawks on a one-year contract, according to ESPN. An athletic specimen, Willson apparently garnered no significant outside interest as a free agent.He'll be well off the fantasy radar as long as Jimmy Graham stays healthy. There was some hope that Willson could latch on with a team that would... Read More

Josh McCown Visiting Jets

Free agent quarterback Josh McCown is making a visit to the New York Jets. The Jets are of course in desperate need of a QB. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a poor season in 2016 and as a free agent himself is unlikely to return. In house options Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg didn't do much to... Read More

Geno Smith Expected to Sign with New York Giants

According to NJ.Com, the Giants will sign Geno Smith once he completes his physical. A move at the quarterback position was expected, although the specific player wasn't. Eli Manning is 36 and had a relatively poor season in 2016. Geno Smith is probably not the long term answer, but there's a chance he could be.... Read More

Eddie Lacy to Visit Seattle Seahawks

Free-agent running back Eddie Lacy will reportedly make a visit to the Seattle Seahawks. It's not clear what Seattle sees in the former Packer. He's managed just 17 games over the past two seasons, and Green Bay has let it slip that Lacy often struggled to control his weight. Still, he was effective for the... Read More

Steelers Cut Karlos Williams

The Pittsburgh Steelers released the still-suspended running back earlier today. Karlos Williams flashed as a rookie in 2015, posting two 100-yard rushing games and averaging 5.5 yards per attempt. But he's been suspended twice and didn't appear in any games in 2016. The release cost him a shot at backing up Le'Veon Bell. DeAngelo Williams... Read More

Bears Sign Markus Wheaton

Free-agent wide receiver Markus Wheaton has signed with the Chicago Bears. Wheaton played out his rookie contract in Pittsburgh, but despite Martavis Bryant's indefinite suspension and Sammie Coates' inability to make an impact last year, the Steelers decided to let Wheaton walk. The Bears lost Alshon Jeffery to the Eagles earlier today, and they wasted... Read More
