Yes. Tom Brady returns to the field following a questionable (to my eyes, anyway) suspension. Yes, Rob Gronkowski is ready (we think) to quiet the supermarket gawkers. Week 5 of the NFL season began with the Drew Stanton-led Cardinals beating the 49ers. Following the game, details started to emerge about a possible restructuring of Colin […]

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 the beautiful time of year. College football begins in earnest this weekend, and we’re just one week away from the first of 256 regular season NFL games. OK, you can lop off the final 16 games for fantasy purposes. When we are referencing Major League Baseball, we joke about the fact that “hope springs […] Fantasy Football Logo

        It’s go time. The 2015 NFL season kicks off tonight as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers square off. The long national nightmare of “DeflateGate” has been tabled for the moment and we’re on to real, hard-hitting action. Here are Harmon’s Fantasy WR Rankings FINAL. Have to be on record.

I saw the headline “On to Cincinnati” regarding Bill Belichick’s Wednesday press conference. Now, nobody expected the Patriots coach to reverse course and suddenly become verbose and forthcoming in the wake of Monday’s crushing loss to the Chiefs. His smirk and stare in his post-game press conference was about all you needed to see. Well, […] Fantasy Football Logo

How Did I Miss This? Sanchez Butt-Fumble Jersey Sold ———— I saw the headline of this story from the Shutdown Corner blog at Yahoo! Sports. One Jets fan pays big bucks for Mark Sanchez’s ‘Butt Fumble’ jersey I immediately started scrolling through the article to see what price was paid for this significant piece of […] Fantasy Football Logo

The long, arduous road to Super Bowl XLVIII (48) is winding toward a dramatic finish. This weekend, NFL fans and fantasy owners will celebrate AFC and NFC Championship Games.

“The Jason Smith Show” on FOX Sports Radio welcomed Heisman Trophy winner and NFL legend Eddie George to the show to talk Ken Whisenhunt’s arrival in Tennessee, Chris Johnson’s future, Championship Weekend and what it would take to lure him to the top spot in Cleveland. Take a listen to Eddie George. ————– You can […]


The clock is ticking toward the beginning of Week 12 of the NFL season. Is it just me, or has this season just flown by very quickly? The playoff chase is on, and we’ve finally come to the end of the Bye weeks. The schedule is replete with interesting matchups, including the 14th edition of […]


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 […]


Remember, the Vikings, Steelers, Redskins and Buccaneers take their Bye this week. Last week was a mess in terms of “Straight Up” selections. As I went to click “Submit” and noticed I’d made an inordinately large number of road selections, there was a sinking feeling. That occurred well in advance of the Thursday Night Football […]

It’s that time again. Last week, I went 10-6 Straight Up and 7-9 ATS. Alas, the sub-.500 mark dropped me to 23-25 for the season. Don’t forget – Carolina and Green Bay are off the board this week. It’s the first run into the annual Bye grind. I called the Rams-49ers game miserably. Bowman had […]

After a strong Week 1 (12-4 SU, 8-8 ATS), Harmon is back to fire up his selections for the games of Week 2 of the NFL season. The Jets are heavy underdogs against the Patriots on Thursday Night Football. Danny Amendola is out indefinitely (2-6 weeks) and Rob Gronkowski is still out, so can Tom […]

I’ve been traveling this week in the pursuit of Fantasy Football greatness. So, some of the tidbits and barbs launched across the sporting world have escaped my radar. However, a cursory search of the day’s events and a quick trip into the Twitterverse yielded many 140-character quick-hits on the new Aaron Hernandez feature in Rolling […]

We love inspirational speeches. There’s no question about it. From the time we first grab a glove to hit the diamond, buckle a chinstrap or sit down in the classroom, we’re looking to be inspired. Coaches, teachers and parents work to find the proper words to elevate our performance and keep us on the path […]

Early on Monday, I offered fantasy owners the opportunity for a rare interactive experience. No, we take plenty of calls, texts and Tweets throughout the week and on the Sunday morning FOX Sports Radio show. I posted the link to the “Fighting Chance Fantasy Mock Draft” in which I was scheduled to participate. The invite […]

Harmon returns to the microphone to chat up a big day in the legal world … at least there seem to be a lot of sports stories working through courts. — Bill Belichick took to the microphone to address the Aaron Hernandez situation while Hernandez appeared in court. — A doctor who examined Alex Rodriguez […]

“We’ve already talked about him enough.” That was Bill Belichick’s response to the inevitable crush of questions regarding the Patriots’ signing of Tim Tebow. I enjoy the fact that the patented Belichick dismissal of the question happened already. It’s the attempt to make Tebow “Just A Guy.” Naturally, the 24-hour news cycle that thirsts for […]

This week, NFL fans will revel in the announcement of future Super Bowl destinations (San Francisco, Houston and Miami are the leaders in the clubhouse). But, that’s phase two of the week. LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas released the over/under win totals for 2013. The Jaguars are predicted to be the worst team in the […]
