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 [...]
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 [...]
We tried to keep it short, so rolling out Marvin Jones, replacements for Jordan Cameron (concussion) and throwbacks to players like Jordan Todman and company couldn’t be done. Of course, as this Championship Week rolls on, numerous players are being shut down. Matt Schaub is back into the mix for the Texans. Ben Tate is [...]
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.
Injuries are causing problems across the NFL for fantasy owners. If you’re chasing following Denver’s loss, you’re reaching deep for high-ceiling running backs and wide receivers. No AP. Go get it. Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros
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?
Harmon reunites with Tracy Hackler of Panini America to discuss new trading card releases (Immaculate Basketball), the autograph redemption process (and a huge mail day for people waiting on Tom Brady product), jersey cards, the NFL Playoff picture and Black Friday. According to a study by industry experts, Panini’s “Black Friday” promotion drove nearly $1.4 [...]
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 [...]
The Fantasy Football Playoffs begin with a huge battle – look at me sell – in the AFC South between the Texans and Jaguars. Do you trust Maurice Jones-Drew and his four-game scoring streak? Are you willing to gamble with Case Keenum? It’s a schedule that includes some high-scoring games (DAL-CHI, NYG-SD and maybe TEN-DEN?) [...]
We see a lot of strange stories flow through the inbox and across our television screens related to sports passions running wild. We see the frenzied, sign-carrying fans on “College GameDay.” The competition continues to grow with the advent of new television networks (FOX Sports 1, NBC Sports Network, CBS Sports Network), 24-7 radio networks [...]
If you’ve ever wanted to grab your friends and dominate the Super Bowl and New York City, your dream can come true. StubHub has teamed with Virgin America and Hudson New York to put together a ridiculous package for this year’s title game. You’ve got game tickets, airfare, hotel rooms and a party covered. Go [...]
As I made my rounds to procure the vital pieces for the holiday dinner (read – liquor and desserts), I heard an interesting piece on NPR that just seemed so appropriate. We’d noticed a change in the shelf considerations at the local grocery stores this fall. The craft beer selections have been creeping into the [...]
The week started strong with a 2-1 record against the spread on Thanksgiving Day. The late touchdown from Roethlisberger to Cotchery (failed 2-point conversion) gave us a curious win. We can keep the discussion of the Mike Tomlin play rolling, as I’m sure the NFL will chime in soon. Game Straight Up Against The Spread [...]
Harmon’s back in Downtown Disney for a live podcast House of Blues this afternoon from 3-5pm PT. He’ll be spreading holiday cheer with Panini Trading Cards and a lot of yelling.
My head is spinning. I just can’t believe that Week 13 of this NFL season is already upon us. I found a cafe to work up some numbers ahead of the week and lingered as drunken revelers strolled down the street. The people-watching was absolutely fantastic. My hope had been to sleep a little later [...]
The short week brings us tryptophan-induced comas, mountains of food and THREE NFL games to get Week 13 started. It’s the final week ahead of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in many leagues, so owners are splitting hairs to find the right starter. Do you trust the Hot-Cold young options, like a Case Keenum? Do you [...]
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 [...]
I believe the caption on the “Featured Image” about says it all. This video was shot just several miles up the coast from my southern California house. I frequently dip the toes in the water and get up into the wash while out with the family, but I never learned to surf and haven’t gone [...]
On Thursday, November 21st, the cast of “Anchorman” got together in Los Angeles to perform a live reading of the first film. Naturally, the arrival of cast members to Los Angeles opened the door to appearances on talk shows. Will Ferrell, in the guise of Ron Burgundy, made an appearance earlier in the week with [...]
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 [...]
The final week of Byes are upon us, just as you’re wringing your hands trying to field a lineup and work your way into the playoffs. The Bills, Seahawks, Bengals and Eagles take a seat, not to mention the myriad injured would-be fantasy starters. The action begins with the disappointing Falcons facing a dominant Saints [...]
I love marketing. I love products that incorporate team logos and try to inspire and fuel a fan base. The Chicago Blackhawks put out a product that was the target of much derision, ridicule and scorn at the beginning of the week. “It’s just water.” “They won the Cup in Boston!” It sold out in [...]
Vince Vaughn’s new movie – “Delivery Man” – is set to hit theaters later this week. Vaughn plays a man who generously donated (frequently) to a sperm bank. He’s now faced with over 500 individuals seeking to know their biological father, and he’s got to get his head around becoming a father. Vaughn joined FOX [...]
Anybody familiar with my work at Yahoo! Sports, FOXSports.com and FOX Sports Radio knows of my affinity for “The Shawshank Redemption,” an obsession that began at its release. It’s on that top-5 leaderboard of movies that you must watch to its conclusion if you spot it on cable television. It’s true. Frank Darabont, Morgan Freeman [...]
