NFL history is filled with big plays, heroes, villains and unforgettable figures. Bill Romanowski was one of the most outspoken and dominant defensive forces in the game during his career. Romanowski played 16 years in the NFL, spending time with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. He appeared in four [...]

The storylines are everywhere, from the battle for legacy in the AFC between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to the rise of a heated NFC West [...]
It’s time to rack it up again with another Fair Market Fantasy contest. I had great success in the Wild Card round and won my 10-team contest, getting tremendous value from T.Y. Hilton and Donald Brown in the Colts’ ridiculous comeback victory over the Chiefs. Ladarius Green makes a repeat appearance in my TE slot. [...]
It’s finally here. You’ve navigated injuries, failed draft picks, “Ninjas” or “Sleepers” that didn’t wake up, bad beats and the occasional wrong lineup decision. You’ve made your way to the fantasy title game or the runner-up contest. Harmon’s back to help with his Week 16 Championship Fantasy Football Rankings. Do you trust Brees on the [...]
Sometimes it’s just entertaining to dive inside the numbers and evaluate the good, bad and ugly of the NFL season. In the next 24 hours, I’ll dole out my Week 16 rankings and picks. For the moment, I’m pausing to review the Quarterback position and shake out quarterbacks scored on a weekly basis. Forget about [...]
I always say that the world could use a little more Bootsy Collins. As I ponder suit choices for Super Bowl coverage in New York, I can’t help but thing that one of these numbers would bring down the house. Listen to Bootsy’s tribute to Peyton Manning.
Harmon’s back with the next round of rankings for Week 15. We’re anxiously awaiting word on Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart, Eddie Lacy and a host of would-be stars in this all-important playoff week. Either way, Thursday Night Football between the Chargers and Broncos promises a scoring barrage. Can we top last week’s touchdown parade?
It’s win or go home with the playoffs looming. As we cruise into Week 12 of the NFL season, some fantasy owners are looking for “safe,” consistent options. Others are willing to throw caution to the wind to find a high-ceiling option for an advantageous matchup. To that end, I took a moment to chart [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
Week 2 is revving up with the Patriots and Jets on the board for the Thursday night. Can Tom Brady find the magic against a solid New York pass defense? What do you do with Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson in a tough head-to-head matchup? I’m eager to see the follow-up effort produced by Terrelle [...]
I would just toss it up to Peyton Manning on the strength of his seven-touchdown performance in Week 1 against the Ravens. That would be too easy. We expected Manning to post a strong day and he delivered in a huge way. The Fantasy Man-Crush for Week 1 rolls to tight end Julius Thomas, who [...]
The 2013 NFL season finally kicked off after a seemingly endless preseason period. We waded through uncharted legal waters, the next round of PED chatter and myriad injuries and personnel changes. Finally, after an extended lightning delay, we saw a countdown to kickoff that ended with a smiling Ray Lewis. The game played even for [...]
The NFL kicked off the 2013 season with a high-scoring, wild affair in Denver. Peyton Manning posted a game for the ages, ripping apart a tired and over-matched Baltimore defense. The game played even for a half prior to Michael Oher’s injury, and the surgeon-like Manning went to work. Naturally, Harmon was quick to reach [...]

At the end of June, I will release a comprehensive fantasy football draft guide, replete with player profiles, team analysis, schedule reviews and countless performance breakdowns. [...]
Peyton Manning has long thrilled football fans, from his time as a member of the Tennessee Volunteers to Indianapolis to Denver.

I give Manning the Fantasy Man-Crush [...]

Have a listen. Have a chuckle. Mock my brain freeze as I struggle to say “hallucinogenics.” [...]
I understand that two huge events, “March Madness” and Major League Baseball’s opening day, are just around the corner. As a Chicago native, my attention drifts toward the ice and the incredible season-opening streak put forth by the Blackhawks. That’s a long post to come following Tuesday night’s game against the Wild. I digress. Let’s [...]
