I’ll cut to the chase. It’s time to roll things up on Week 4. We await Friday practice reports for updated injury information, but kickoff for Thursday night football is nigh. Here are my first-look rankings for Week 4. I expect the rain to bode well for the Bengals RBs. Giovani Bernard even launched into […]

Week 4 of this NFL season brings a number of wrinkles. First, the dreaded Bye weeks begin and blow holes in our lineups. That’s right. You already need to account for the losses of Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson this week. Sure, you lose Carson Wentz and Jordan Matthews, but this would have been the […]

It’s time for another big run in fantasyland. LeGarrette Blount got things started with a huge night against the Texans behind Jacoby Brissett. Today’s action features a host of intriguing matchups, including the Battle for Pennsylvania (Read: Wentz vs. the Steelers) and another helping of the Bears in primetime against Dak Prescott and the Dallas […]

I’ll ponder life on a grander level here as the weekend approaches (Friday practice notes will shuffle a number of things), but I felt compelled to get rankings up quickly ahead of the Texans-Patriots battle. Jacoby Brissett is the man of the hour, and he’ll have Rob Gronkowski at the ready. Check out the early […]

Following another uneven and miserable Monday Night Football game, we move forward to Week 3. The Eagles manhandled a beleaguered Bears squad and sent several players, including quarterback Jay Cutler, to the injury list. I’ll expand the game review here soon enough. You can listen to my immediate reactions of the MNF game on the […]

The games of Week 2 began with a thriller on Thursday night between the Bills and Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick shredded the Buffalo secondary, Eric Decker’s wife opened the door for one million nicknames … and Matt Forte crashed through a Dareus-less run defense for three touchdowns. With Gronkowski and Ertz out, the tight end position […]

It’s that time again. You exhale after a couple days of hotly-contested football action. You resume your normal work activities and before you know know it, you’re smack-dab in another fantasy football matchup. We can only hope that the beginning to Week 2 between the Jets and Bills trumps the misery of the Rams-49ers Monday […]

As we close the book on Week 1 of the NFL season, the waiver wire begins to churn. To some degree, fantasy owners are subject to the classic overreaction of doing a full-on roster swap in Week 1. Aaron Rodgers said it best – “R-E-L-A-X.” But, that doesn’t mean that you don’t take a look-see […]

On Thursday night, we got the new 2016 NFL season started with a big-hitting and dramatic affair. The Denver Broncos came from behind to beat Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers 21-20. Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal in the waning seconds of this game. But, the missed field goal is only a footnote. […]

These will be updated as the weekend looms and injury reports are updated. But, had to get the record up for those last minute adjustments. Here are Harmon’s Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings. 2016 Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyProsECR ™ – Expert Consensus Rankings

Last call! Final fantasy football drafts for 2016 are being conducted ahead of Thursday’s Super Bowl rematch between the Broncos and Panthers. Naturally, my Northwestern-loving self can’t wait to see Trevor Siemian under center for Denver. But, it’s about the start of a 256-game journey to the postseason. Will Tom Brady return from suspension to […]

We capture big moments in a special way on The Jason Smith Show on FOX Sports Radio. And there may have never been a bigger moment than Ryan Jenkins’ three-point shot to send the Villanova Wildcats to their first title in 30 years. But it was Ryan Arcidiacono that set the table for that monumental […]

There are few days on the calendar that get me as fired up as Super Bowl Sunday. The six-month buildup, a period that encompasses innumerable radio hits, columns read, numbers crunched, fantasy musings delivered, game reviews and shows hosted, funnels directly into a frenetic final week. And this week leading up to Super Bowl 50 […]

It was only a matter of time. Trey Parker and Matt Stone get after the latest NFL debacle, Deflategate, in this week’s “South Park” episode. Cartman’s seething and stalking the hallway, likening himself as Tom Brady in his fight against school administration.

The NFL season is now off and pacing on the road to Santa Clara in Super Bowl 50. The Patriots and Steelers whet our proverbial appetite with the season opener last Thursday. Fans were treated to the opener of the Tom Brady “Revenge Tour” and frequent Rob Gronkowski sightings. Then, we all got up and […]

              The running back position has been devalued (in theory, anyway) for some time now. Committee situations and goal-line vultures have become the norm in today’s NFL, thereby creating early separation. Harmon’s Fantasy RB Rankings Final

While I work to tweak final Week 1 Fantasy Football rankings, the Twitter feed is constantly refreshed for breaking news and injury updates. And the occasional pop culture brilliance … such as this. Her dominance in the ring unquestioned, we know that Ronda Rousey is working to expand her brand beyond the octagon and to […]

Locked and loaded for the regular season. In just a little more than 24 hours, the new NFL season will begin when the Patriots and Steelers get things started. And, as “Harmon’s Fantasy QB Rankings Final” note, Tom Brady is back and ready to roll (No. 3). I felt compelled to re-post the final draft […]

This past weekend, the nation’s long national nightmare ended. The glory of football season began on Thursday night with a huge slate of college games. And Friday, towns across this country shut down early to celebrate the return of “Friday Night Lights.” For all the good vibes, tailgates and celebrations, there are always negative stories that […]

On Thursday, we celebrated the beginning of a glorious new season of football. In the NFL, we witnessed the final performances of the preseason slate. Most stars stood around in ball caps while waving to the crowd. Collegiate players took to the gridiron for games that counted, and none was more celebrated that Jim Harbaugh’s […]

The first trailer for the forthcoming Will Smith vehicle “Concussion” landed on Monday. Peter King included it in his MMQB piece. I’ve watched it several times and have seen the attention-grabbing headlines that have taken over social media and entertainment/sports websites. Many of these headlines include some variation of the “Movie that the NFL doesn’t […]

“Blue – You’re My Boy!”  You all have heard the movie line and probably shouted it from the top of your lungs on multiple occasions. Well, “blue” has a whole other meaning and is blowing up social media and news sites mid-week. “Deep Blue” is now the lead in the summer of the shark, and video […]

On Thursday night, the NBA welcomed its latest draft class. After months of speculation, the top pick went down without incident. The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Karl-Anthony Towns from Kentucky, the first of a long parade of John Calipari disciples. Calipari had six players selected overall, including four in the lottery. I digress. Calipari was one […]

Earlier this week, the Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals (4-2). I’ve heard the arguments all week about how the health of Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving flipped this from a Cleveland sweep to a Warriors victory. That’s some specious thinking, to my mind, to say that […]

In prepping for a stint on “Steve Gorman Sports!” for FOX Sports Radio on Monday, I read a report that made me take pause and, frankly, made me a bit sad. It was revealed through a Tampa Bay Times article that Dick Vitale was removed from this week’s iteration of the UNC-Duke rivalry. Jay Bilas and […]
