Since we’re three weeks into the season, we can start to operate with some data and some sticky information. Three games aren’t enough of a sample to have any degree of confidence in average projections, but some obvious trends can support or reject our preseason narratives. Saquon Barkley is BACK! It’s not just the usage […]

The chaos we expected in Week 1 actually happened in Week 2. We saw astonishing come-from-(WAY)-behind, wins on the road from the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets. We had crazy upsets from the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Dallas Cowboys somehow stifled the Cincinnati Bengals. When examining these rankings, consider […]
The first week of any season usually feels pretty crazy, but I honestly didn’t feel that way this year until I looked at the box scores and stat lines. I think the result of the Thursday Night Football game was a warning that some offenses will be way ahead of others. It seemed like every […]
A week from today, nearly everyone interested in NFL football will be talking about how we just witnessed the craziest first week of football ever.

They are a reference to access the night before your draft or during your draft to give you confidence going into a pick. There are many ways to approach your draft. No one approach will win you a […]
