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 Jets and Bills kicked off Week 2 of the 2016 NFL season with an unexpected high-scoring affair. Ryan Fitzpatrick carved up the Buffalo secondary, while Sammy Watkins’ foot injury limited his impact for Tyrod Taylor. The Bills’ lack of production – 98 total offensive plays in two games – also pushed offensive coordinator Greg […]

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 […]

The glorious morning has finally arrived. In just five hours, the NFL season will kick off in full effect. Sure, we had a stuffed appetizer on Thursday night with the Broncos taking down the Panthers in a Super Bowl rematch. But, that was just the first of 256 battles to settle the NFL regular season. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Prince

I pieced together a quick video (you can see the tired eyes) on the outpouring of emotion following the death of legendary musician Prince, the latest in a string of jarring losses in the entertainment world this year. Harmon examines the connection of pop culture, music and sports, the similarity of fan bases and the reverential […]

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 […]

ManVFat

I saw this story published earlier this week by our colleagues at FOX Soccer and it made me smile. It’s a different take on the annual rite of “weight loss” resolutions on New Year’s Day. Started by a man frustrated by his inability to find the motivation and support through traditional weight loss programs, “Man V […]

Last week, the owners of the NFL voted to approve a stadium project in Inglewood, CA. NFL fans in California celebrated the return of a team that departed following the 1994 season. Those in St. Louis burned merchandise and jerseys and cursed the name of owner Stan Kroenke. Fans were allowed to plunk down a […]

Sometimes in sports media, we have the ability to laugh and joke like we’re 12 years old. Sometimes our subjects act just the same. And, that has never been exemplified better than this week’s presser in Australia that left UFC Champion Ronda Rousey in stitches. Rousey was answering a question about how to attack striker […]

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 […]

        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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Elvis57Doll

This is one of the greatest things I’ve seen in recent memory. I’m feeling like I want to sell off anything extraneous in my house to participate in the ridiculous Elvis auction on eBay. The header image displays a doll released in 1957. I’ve never seen it before. The auction includes a number of autographed photos, […]

“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 […]
