I’ll wax poetic another time. The top of the wide receiver board is stocked with the usual suspects. But, change is afoot. Mike Evans crashes the top-5, and we’ve got Michael Thomas and Brandin Cooks entering the top 10. Cooks offers Tom Brady his first true deep ball threat since Randy Moss in that historic […]

bell fantasy card

The running back position has undergone an overhaul in recent years. We don’t have a huge run of bellcows anymore. Few players at the position averaged more than 15 carries per game. Now, the continued involvement of RBs in the passing game keeps the touch count high for some, but has created a proliferation of […]

Breathe it in. Football returned this past week in earnest. Ratings were up in virtually every market for the first preseason telecasts, demonstrating the NFL’s power once again. Fans were treated to solid first outings from several rookie quarterbacks. Fantasy owners parsed through workloads, targets and snap counts to try and create separation in the […]

DartThrow

I haven’t done 17 versions of Mock Drafts ahead of tonight’s festivities. But, I felt compelled to at least toss a couple darts in the direction of this spectacle. Because we offered up some bold predictions in my shows on FOX Sports Radio, I included trades affecting the top 6 (had to include the Jets […]

Pancakes

Here’s your headline of the day. I saw this story first thing on Friday morning. Naturally, it started to appear everywhere given its comical nature. We joke about the Kevin Costner “Pancake-Eating (Expletive)” rant from the movie Draft Day during out shows on FOX Sports Radio and even celebrate a segment called Hot Takes & […]

It’s time to put the ball back up. Tipoff for Sunday’s games is just moments away when Michigan and Louisville get after it. We’re ready. We’re sitting at 23-15-2 ATS through three days. —– Louisville – 3 1/2 Michigan Wichita State +5 Kentucky Michigan State +8 Kansas UNC -11 Arkansas Rhode Island +5 1/2 Oregon […]

Getting in at the wire. Here are the picks for Saturday after a strong Round 1. Notre Dame + 2 1/2 West Virginia Wisconsin + 6 Villanova Northwestern + 11 Gonzaga Xavier + 7 Florida State Middle Tennessee St + 3 Butler Arizona – 6 St. Mary’s CA Virginia + 2 Florida Iowa State – […]

I won’t do a big preamble here. We went 11-4-1 on Thursday. Let’s follow it up with another big day. Michigan -3 Oklahoma State Seton Hall +1 Arkansas SMU -6 1/2 USC Louisville -19 1/2 Jacksonville St Michigan State +2 1/2 Miami Duke -20 Troy Wichita St -6. Dayton Kansas -23 1/2 UC Davis Kentucky […]

Participating in the world of sports talk radio (weeknights 8-11p PT on FOX Sports Radio) requires analysis, bold predictions and more than a few instances of hot take nonsense. In that vein, I present my picks ATS for Thursday’s NCAA Men’s Tournament action. * Picks are for entertainment purposes only. The numbers were taken off […]

Lock and load. The countdown clock is quickly ticking toward zero. And I’m in from the opening tip through the championship game. Sure, my attention will turn to Salt Lake City and the first-round matchup between my beloved Northwestern Wildcats and the Vanderbilt Commodores. Now I want to start singing “Easy” or one of the […]

Pork Chop Finish

Fun times today inside The Dome. We’re ready to unleash a whole new world of hot takes, stat pulls and analysis as NFL Free Agency kicks into gear. Yes, we’ll talk a lot about Kirk Cousins and the whereabouts of Tony Romo. We’ll eagerly await the next home for Martellus Bennett and Adrian Peterson. I […]

For the past few weeks, I’ve driven past innumerable billboards for the new Universal release “A Dog’s Purpose.” Given the ridiculous Los Angeles commute I make each day to our Sherman Oaks studios, I’ll stipulate to having spent more than a few moments pondering my own. But that’s a tale for another blog post, book […]

I still want to know what happened to the wigs that were left over when Manny Ramirez left Los Angeles during the 2010 season (he was waived and joined the White Sox). They were hot sellers for a while in Dodger Stadium gift shops at a cool $25 each. Perhaps they can be repurposed with […]

Richard Sherman said it all. While you may not be excited for this matchup, they still have to play it. The Seahawks are prohibitive favorites and offer myriad fantasy options. We’ll see if Jared Goff can find a crack in the Earl Thomas-less Seattle defense or whether the fans warm up to celebrate a huge […]

You blink and the season just rolls by. It’s already Week 13 of the NFL season, and fantasy owners are wringing their hands and trying to secure playoff seeding, a playoff berth or to play spoiler. OK, like the Browns (on a Bye, by the way), there are going to be teams simply playing out […]

As Jason Smith and I settled in to our normal routine of vetting stories for our Monday show, we rolled through a number of audio pieces (gold, really) and kept our eyes fixed on the Rodgers-Wentz Monday Night Football battle. Rodgers made several throws that silenced, if only momentarily, all critics as the Packers stopped […]

It’s that time again. Three games are in the books for Week 12 of the Fantasy Football campaign. All teams are participating in this week’s festivities, including an intriguing Arizona-Atlanta matchup and a beautiful Kansas City-Denver showdown. Will Rob Gronkowski be ready for a full snap count, or is a decoy day ahead? Lock it […]

The chase for the fantasy playoffs is heating up. Fantasy owners received a lackluster effort from Cam Newton on Thursday against the Saints. There’s no Gronk for the Patriots’ visit to San Francisco. And Jared Goff is starting in Los Angeles against the Dolphins. There are plenty of storylines to follow – and no, I’m […]
