Source: Now that the NFL Draft is over I’ve updated my position rankings. I’ll start off with quarterbacks and then do a new position each day. I will also have an updated rookie draft later in the week. In my latest quarterback rankings Kevin Kolb and Alex Smith move up after getting help in [...]

Source: I hate using the term “losers” because that really isn’t accurate . Teams target specific players for their system, so it’s hard to know what they are thinking one day after the draft. Having said that, there are three teams based on my rankings and how I view players that I think could [...]

NFL Draft Recap: Draft Winners

Source: I don’t really like all the draft winners and losers stuff but I know others enjoy it. I don’t give out grades. I have no idea what it means to say a team’s draft was a “B.” If we really wanted to grade drafts we would do it three years later. Based on [...]

Source: The NFL Draft has finally come to an end but my work is never done. Remember a lot of good NFL and fantasy players get drafted after the third round, so let’s take a look at some of the later round picks that could have fantasy value either this year or down the [...]

Source: My God, I feel like the draft has been on for three weeks. As Rodney Dangerfield said in Back to School; “I feel like I just gave birth…to an accountant.” I have so many players and numbers running through my head I don’t even know where I am anymore. Still, I found time [...]

Source: We really only had one round of the draft on Thursday? Jesus, I feel like I gave birth and there were only 32 picks.  A lot of talent still on the board for teams to pick from in Rounds 2 and 3. My two favorite players are Nebraska LB Lavonte David and Oregon [...]

Source: Well, after blogging about every single pick in Round 1 I took a 30 minute break and now it’s time to look at each offensive skill player that was selected. There were a lot of picks I liked in the first round for fantasy purposes. Here is an early reaction to the first [...]

Happy Draft Day everyone! The NFL Draft is my favorite three days (or is it 10 days now?) of the year. I will be running a live blog all three days where I give an initial reaction to each selection, along with early fantasy thoughts when relevant. Stop by throughout the draft and check out [...]

Source: I always say special players also need a bit of luck on their side. On Wednesday Cam Newton got that luck when he was beat out by Calvin Johnson for the right to be on the cover of Madden 2013. We all know by now there is no greater curse in the universe [...]

Source: It’s the day before the NFL Draft and instead of spending time with my family before shutting them off for three straight days I figured I would update my fantasy quarterback rankings instead. I’m going to expand my rankings after the draft but at quarterback why wait? We know where Andrew Luck and [...]
