Harmon returned to blogtalkradio.com to discuss Monday night’s action in the NBA Playoffs, MLB milestones and struggles, fantasy heroes and duds, a busy night in Chicago, NFL mock drafts and have a chuckle with Peyton Manning and Shane Battier. Have a listen. Have a chuckle. Mock my brain freeze as I struggle to say “hallucinogenics.” [...]

Congratulations to Felix Hernandez, who earned the 100th win of his career against the Astros on Monday night. Hernandez pitched six shutout innings with nine strikeouts, allowing five hits and a walk. Despite velocity concerns (see below), Hernandez has recorded 37 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings pitched this season. Many sniping 140-character comments have been [...]

Monday was a beautiful day here “Inside The Swollen Dome.” The podcast returned after a hiatus – call it a renewal with Vol. 1, Episode 1. I recapped the weekend’s events, got a little bit into the NBA Playoffs, Derrick Rose, early baseball returns, news of the weird and a wee bit of NFL schedule [...]

After a day of shaking hands and flapping gums at the media center, it’s always good to pause and get a taste of the true flavor of Super Bowl week. I spent each afternoon driving around the city of New Orleans, checking out the classic architectural structures, the neighborhoods and talking to the locals. At [...]

Harmon returns to the microphone, the first “Inside The Swollen Dome” podcast for 2013, to discuss this week’s NFL Playoffs – Divisional Round. Peyton Manning and the Broncos fall: Who’s to blame? Ryan survives. Brady marches on … and Kaepernick becomes a superhero.

As always, we await some information on those outstanding injuries. Here is the first-look at this week’s rankings heading into the Saturday night matchup between Atlanta and Detroit. Let’s get it on. Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

It’s that time. We’ve got three weeks remaining on the NFL’s regular season. That means that the fantasy playoffs are in full swing. The race to the championship is on. There are ninjas behind every corner. Who becomes the hero of the day? Will Andy Dalton race out to a big night against the Eagles, [...]

I quote Ozzy Osbourne as we enter Week 13 of this NFL season. “I love you all.” It’s been a crazy run to this point, and owners have stalked the waiver wire and rolled over their rosters in pursuit of a playoff berth. The injury list reads for several pages. You might wish to just [...]

It’s the stretch run in fantasyland, and owners are rolling toward to Ronnie Hillman, RB, DEN: Willis McGahee is out indefinitely. Hillman logged 15 touches for 59 yards in a workload split with Lance Ball in McGahee’s absence. Bryce Brown, RB, PHI: Brown logged five carries for 35 yards in relief of LeSean McCoy late [...]

Earlier on Wednesday, I had a chance to talk to longtime Seattle Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant. The Seahawks are rolling into the second half of the season with a shot at the NFC Playoffs — and a nice slate of home dates in December. We get into that, this week’s matchup against the Jets (and [...]

The games of Week 8 yielded a number of surprises, as some of our struggling fantasy heroes of years past finally posted fantastic output. Did you show faith in Matthew Stafford? Did Byes or injuries slide Michael Crabtree back into a WR3 slot? What about Doug Martin? He delivered a masterful performance in a tough [...]

It’s time to start shuffling up. The overreaction meter is on high alert on following the final gun of Week 1. I know that the Oakland-San Diego game put you to sleep, and not because of the time of day. Obviously, we don’t want to hit the panic button after one game, but there’s no [...]

The draft season is in full swing, and fantasy owners are perusing rankings across sites, making their notes and perhaps giving players their own “eye test” by watching some preseason action. One of the players that keeps popping up in discussions about his positional rank is Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan. This phenomenon occurred before his [...]

Each year, I make several long treks along our nation’s highways to take in the glorious sounds of crashing helmets, popping pads and air horns. Yes, I said air horns. It’s a Pavlovian experience. You might not understand. There is a magic in the air that surrounds training camps. You’re not watching NFL players under [...]
