The 2013 season has been the year of the passing game and ridiculous point totals. There will be as many as 13 quarterbacks (with a couple of massive games for the back-end options, of course) to finish the season with 4,000 passing yards. With a couple big games by those on the fringe, perhaps 14 [...]

It’s that time of the week again. Week 8 of the 2013 NFL season begins on Thursday night with a clash between the Panthers and Buccaneers. I know. It’s hard to get excited about this primetime game following the debacle that was the Giants-Vikings on Monday night. But you have Cam Newton. You have Steve [...]

Monday’s game between the Vikings and Giants ranked among the worst that we’ve sat through in some time. Both offenses struggled markedly, and Josh Freeman’s frequent overthrowing of his receivers (16 times) became the subject of derision and scrutiny across the social media landscape and the broadcast network airing the game. I shan’t repeat some [...]

Many pundits and commentators left the Browns for dead and “playing for 2014″ following the trade that sent tailback Trent Richardson to the Colts. While Richardson’s presence was felt on an early touchdown run in the Colts’ upset win over the 49ers, the Browns certainly didn’t roll over for the Vikings. For the second straight [...]

You can only take a short breath before the next week creeps up on you. It seems like just mere moments ago that we were unwrapping the 2013 fantasy football season and treating those first snaps like a new toy at Christmas. We then watched the madness unfold with the Eagles and Redskins flying around [...]

Harmon returns with his Week 2 fantasy forecast at the running back position. Last week, owners were left wanting by Lamar Miller, Davis Wilson and Stevan Ridley. Will any of those young backs respond? Owners are certainly concerned about the early workload split between Arian Foster and Ben Tate on Monday night against the Texans [...]

It’s time to get back through the numbers and to put together a winning formula for the 2013 season. Over the next several days, I’m rolling back to the 2012 numbers to point out the prowess (and struggles) of fantasy options. He’s a quick look at selected running backs and their median scoring in standard [...]

You fully expect Houston workhorse Arian Foster to appear among the leaders in the touch count summary. He led the league with 391 touches in 2012. “RoboBack” Adrian Peterson finished second with 388 touches, and the other members of the top nine are hardly a surprise. Most fans and fantasy owners would not recall the [...]

Many teams are taking their work in-house with a sprinkling of public dates to whet the collective appetite. That means that it’s time to start rolling out the 2013 Fantasy Football Draft Guide. It all [...]

The calendar has flipped to June, and that means that it’s time to start firing off statistics, lists and analysis to announce the arrival of the extended 2013 Fantasy Football draft season. And that’s the reality. Like the NFL has become a 365-day business, fantasyland has extended to a year-round entity. Sure, you put the [...]

As fantasy owners pile up new scoring categories and add bonuses for tremendous feats, one of the most popular add-ons has been to reward long-distance runs. To the surprise of no one, the newly-minted 50-millionaire Chris Johnson leads the pack. Rank Name 2010 2009 2008 Total 1. Chris Johnson 37 49 36 122 2. Adrian [...]

The time has come for a new round of great debates, and none captures the spirit of the football nation nearly as much as the simple question …. “Who is No. 1?” I opened the early fantasy schedule (you know. that little window post-NFL Draft) with Adrian Peterson in the top slot. As I’ve followed [...]

On Tuesday night, I sat down to participate in another Fantasy Football Draft in anticipation of an on-time 2011 NFL season. I joined an esteemed panel of know-it-alls, including fantasy hero Maurice Jones-Drew, to match wits and throw another log onto the fire with hopes of getting this 2011 season popping. I drew the No. [...]
