We’ll get some real football weather tonight when the Bears travel to Lambeau Field for a date with the enigmatic Packers. Game-time temperatures are expected to dip to 45 degrees. Can Aaron Rodgers reverse recent woes and bad headlines in a primetime slot against the division rival Bears? The line of Thursday morning was “he […] Fantasy Football Logo

The cycle churns quickly. We’re already counting down the minutes until the start of Week 6. Trevor Siemian returns to the fray for Denver as they battle the 1-4, snake-bitten Chargers. Can Philip Rivers solve the Denver defense? We also see Colin Kaepernick back on the field for the 49ers in Buffalo. Is the Rex […]

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 […]


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 […] Fantasy Football Logo

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 […]


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 […]

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.


Locked and loaded for the regular season. In just a little more than 24 hours, the new NFL season will begin when the Patriots and Steelers get things started. And, as “Harmon’s Fantasy QB Rankings Final” note, Tom Brady is back and ready to roll (No. 3). I felt compelled to re-post the final draft […] Fantasy Football Logo Fantasy Football Logo Fantasy Football Logo

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

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 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 […]


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 […]

Harmon takes to the studio desk to shake his fist in anger over some first-quarter failures in fantasyland. Which draft season stars let you down? Video: Inside Fantasy: First Quarter Busts

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 […]

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’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 […]

The sound of the whistle reverberates across the wide-open field. You hear the grunts, the crashing of pads, the unmistakable sound of a blocking sled and, depending on where you travel, some music. NFL training camps opened across college campuses (and now a number of team facilities) this week. The countdown until your league’s fantasy […]

Back at the mic, Harmon’s Podcast 7.25 includes the breaking Percy Harvin injury news, talk about NFL Camps, Biogenesis, the MLB trade deadline and the meaning of life.

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 […]

With training camp just days away, it’s time to roll out the first-look rankings. Adjustments will be made as we get reports out of camp and those peripheral contributors come into focus. At the top of the list, there aren’t many surprises or shuffles to ruffle any feathers. Sure, we can flip Drew Brees and […]
