Harmon returns with his latest set of rankings. There are a number of injuries being tracked ahead of kickoff, not to mention the beginning of weather issues across the landscape. Things kick off Thursday with the Jets and Patriots — and a lot of rain. Will Tom Brady continue his surge?
As we know, the fantasy football world is stacked with pundit and scribes looking for clever phrasing to complete their analysis. I would raise my hand and proudly declare myself to be one of those analysts seeking to make a point with a (sometimes) witty analogy or turn of phrase. Well, that point has not […]
I participated in an “Expert” league at the start of the summer hosted on MyFantasyLeague.com. It’s a 20-slot, 12-owner, “Best Ball” type of league. That is to say, we draft the league and watch things unfold without an ability to shift, substitute or replaced injured (or dare I say, suspended) players. So, here’s a snapshot […]
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 […]
The Onion and Lenovo put together a series of videos following a fantasy team from creation through the playoffs. There are eight videos in the series that show the scouting process, draft day and the excruciating in-season roster management. What if Alfred Morris and Larry Fitzgerald were lobbying for a starting spot in your Flex […]
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 […]
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 […]
The finale of Week 11 was not the powerhouse matchup that the NFL world had anticipated. Chicago came to San Francisco with Jason Campbell under center, while Colin Kaepernick got the nod for Jim Harbaugh’s squad. Kaepernick used his legs quite a bit against the Rams in that strange game against St. Louis in Week […]
It’s been an interesting two weeks across this sporting landscape. We celebrated that annual rite of spring, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. (You didn’t think I was going to say Major League Baseball spring training, did you?) The NFL calendar year started with a flurry of activity and big-dollar contracts. I’ll forgo the laundry list […]
I’ll get into the Carson Palmer trade to Oakland in another post. This is an interesting one with the trade deadline looming in the NFL. Matt Forte and the Bears are at a standstill in contract negotiations. His future in Chicago is most definitely in question. A Chicago Tribune report (reissued by NFL.com) discusses that […]
Harmon cleared his throat and yelled for a full 15 (more like 17) minutes on Wednesday. He covered contract talk, depth charts, recent injuries and a few news nuggets that may have interested only him. Give a listen. Tell your friends. Listen to internet radio with The Swollen Dome on Blog Talk Radio
Harmon and his colleague John Halpin of FOXSports.com got together to discuss the good, bad and ugly of Week 1. Give it a listen .
The long and winding road has begun. The 2010 Harmon training camp tour began Saturday night with a stop in Bourbonnais to visit the Chicago Bears. It’s a team that faces a lot of “what ifs?” as preparations get underway for the opener. — What if Jay Cutler gets hurt? — What if Julius Peppers […]
