Fantasy Index Weekly: Championship Preview: New Orleans

Yesterday we looked at the road teams in the Conference Championship games; today the home teams. First up the New Orleans Saints, who are favored by 3.5. That might not be high enough. Of the four teams playing this weekend, the Saints are by far the most likely to make it to Atlanta.   more »

Around the NFL: Bear market for Hunt?

The Bears are the first team to put their toes in the Kareem Hunt waters. He’s got some off-field baggage that’s still being looking into, of course, but he might be a really good fit with their offense.  more »


Fantasy Index Weekly: Championship Preview: New England Patriots

We're taking a look at the two road teams in the Conference Championship games today. Next up is the New England Patriots, at Kansas City. Unlike the NFC game, which will be played in a dome, weather might be a factor in this one, making the projection trickier.   more »


Fantasy Index Weekly: Championship Preview: L.A. Rams

We published the season's final issue of Fantasy Index Weekly last week. But there are still four teams playing, and fantasy playoff leagues that will require teams to start players in those games. So over the rest of this week, we'll take a look at the final four teams, and their fantasy prospects. First up, the road team in the NFC game, the Los Angeles Rams.   more »


Trivia: January 15, 2019

Remarkably, the Patriots have had a running back score 3 TDs in a playoff game six times in the last seven years – Sony Michel on Sunday, and previously LeGarrette Blount (twice), James White, Dion Lewis and Shane Vereen. Who are the only other two active running backs who have scored 3 TDs in a postseason game? answer »


Viva Murillo!: No Place Like Home

If you watched the games this past weekend, you understand the importance of playing at home. How important is home-field advantage? Teams that have clinched a playoff spot will go all-out in weeks 16 and 17 to earn a home game. And even if they have that secured, they'll keep playing for a bye or home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Guys who could use the rest play hurt. Coaches dig deep to find the right plays. Fans understand the importance of winning. Playing at home is a big deal in the playoffs. Well, unless it's fantasy football. Then, you know, it's no big deal.   more »


Around the NFL: Freddie Kitchens

I like what the Browns are putting together. They’ve got the right quarterback, they’ve got some talent around him, and now it looks like they’re putting together an intriguing coaching staff.  more »


Andy Richardson: A Weekend of Football

Well the NFL had its joke on me. I come out Saturday morning and trash them for scheduling what I figured would be the worst game of the weekend on Sunday afternoon, and naturally it turns out to be the best. I stand corrected. The NFL wins. It always wins. I went 4-0 on my picks, so there's that, but there's nothing bold about picking the four favored home teams. It's just surprising when those guys actually win.   more »

Factoid: Running wild

Whatever happened to the idea that running the ball isn’t important anymore? In three of the playoff games this weekend, the winners ran for over 150 yards and at least 3 TDs.   more »

Factoid: Is upset possible?

Do the Eagles have a prayer? New Orleans hammered them pretty soundly in the regular season, winning 48-7 back in Week 11. But other teams have been able to flip around blowout losses in the past.   more »

Around the NFL: Sunday morning injury updates

The Sunday morning inactives from the Patriots-Chargers game are out, and Hunter Henry is active, as expected. It seems unlikely he'll play very much, just seven months removed from a torn ACL, but he wouldn't be active if they didn't at least expect to put him on the field some.   more »


Trivia: January 13, 2019

Who were the starting quarterbacks the last time the Saints lost a game at home in the playoffs? answer »


Factoid: KC-Colts

I will be interested to see how Patrick Mahomes performs today. Indianapolis is 10-1 in its last 11 games, and its defense has played a big role in that turnaround. I believe it’s a group that will force him to patiently work the ball down the field.  more »
