Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

Growing up in the 80s, I remember a lot of high-scoring games. I was rooting for the Lynn Dickey Packers, and the games that stood out were a 48-47 Monday nighter against Washington and a 50-48 battle with the Bears. Think there was a slugfest with the Chargers in there.

It's an interesting (alarming? absurd?) time in the NFL.   more »

Dynasty Leagues: Mahomes tops quarterbacks

In dynasty leagues, decision making is particularly difficult at the quarterbacking position. Where do you slot older quarterbacks who are great right now – Tom Brady, Drew Brees – against younger quarterbacks who aren’t as good but who have a lot more career left? Or do you figure you’ll have found some other quarterback 4-5 years from now?  more »

Trivia: October 14, 2018

The Colts and Jets play today. These teams famously met in Super Bowl III, and two years later were placed in the same division. What are the only other three pairs of teams that during the Super Bowl era have both played against each other in a Super Bowl and spent time in the same division? (Note: in 1966, the NFL divided teams into 8- and 7-team groups, but they were conferences rather than divisions.) answer »

Andy Richardson: Updated offensive line rankings

Jason Peters suffered a torn biceps in last night's win over the Giants. Just a flesh wound, says Peters, and he'll be fine to play, but we'll see. If nothing else, it seems likely his effectiveness will be somewhat limited, with one's bicep muscle being kind of important to arm strength. Makes sense to downgrade the Eagles a little in the updated rankings.   more »

Andy Richardson: Fantasy Index Blackout Week 6 Lineup

Poor week last week. I was right there in the top 30 of this thing a week or two ago, and now I'm barely clinging into double-digits. Faith in Derrick Henry was a clear mistake. Time to make up some ground with an aggressive yet a little bit safer lineup.   more »
