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 [...]

The highly-publicized jersey exchange occurred this weekend in Foxborough. Fans lined up around Gillette Stadium to take the opportunity to swap out their Aaron Hernandez No. 81 jerseys. The Patriots offered a limited number of players in the exchange program. There were no Tim Tebow jerseys to be had. Those had to be purchased separately. [...]

These might be my favorite bits from “Late Night” with Jimmy Fallon. Whenever he bridges the sarcasm and wit with music, good things happen. Just go find the Neil Young bits. Here’s the third iteration of “Tebowie,” where Fallon pays tribute to the quarterback while donning David Bowie-like garb from the 70s. We saw the [...]

“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 [...]

Consider this the teaser for the greatness to come as SwollenDome.com begins to ponder the 2013 NFL season. Below, I roll out the preliminary quarterback rankings for standard leagues. 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. [...]

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 [...]

Almost 48 hours ago, the final gun sounded on Super Bowl XLVI. Tight end Rob Gronkowski labored downfield to make an effort on the last-second heave from Tom Brady in the end zone. The tipped ball fell harmlessly to the turf, just narrowly out of his reach. The Giants won their second Super Bowl in [...]
