Football Extra Points:
Fantasy Football League sign-ups are going on now, I've updated rankings as I see them now.
I don't see a lot of depth at RB anymore, especially with the way the the game is played now. There are so few teams with featured backs anymore. With team running two and three backs now the fantasy value of RB is not what it use to be.
In most leagues the QB should be drafted first and after the first 15 RB, I think that the talent really drops off.
Here's how I see them now:
1 Adrian Foster
2 Ray Rice
11 Steven Jackson
12 Jamal Charles
In my opinion, here is where things drop off.
16 Fred Jackson
18 Trent Richardson
19 Shonn Greene
22 Reggie Bush
23 Michael Bush
When I started Fantasy Football the RB was the most coveted position. Now, if you...

Don’t get me wrong, Ray Rice is a a very good running back, but the Baltimore Ravens just dropped their shorts when they signed him yesterday. The terms of the deal? 5 years, $40 million and it calls to pay the running back $17 million this fall. You’ll probably going to point to the fact [...]

Running back Ray Rice has agreed to a five-year extension with the Baltimore Ravens.
The extension is believed to be worth $40M, and was agreed to shortly before the deadline to sign a player designated with the franchise tag. So Rice will not be a holdout for the start of training camp, and fantasy owners of the stud running back in dynasty leagues can breathe easy...
Season 2, Episode 126 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I start off by explaining how we are not playing up to the standard today after I lost the rerecording of our Tuesday morning interview with Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. We had a great talk with Nate concerning the Cleveland Browns as they head into training camp, but unfortunately the file...
The biggest story out of Ravens camp this offseason hasn’t been about Terrell Suggs’ injury, or Joe Flacco saying he thinks he’s the best quarterback in the league or even that Chuck Pagano bolted to coach the kids in Indy this year. Those were all key pieces to an odd offseason, but the Ray Rice dilemna was the biggest story during the break.
Would he or wouldn’t he was...

Michael Vick used the D-word to describe the Eagles’ prospects this year. He said dynasty instead of dream team to compare the 2012 Eagles to the storied 49ers, Packers and Cowboys Super Bowl teams he admired while growing up.
Vince Young’s dream team label seemed to have cursed Philadelphia last season. The dynasty tag might not, now that the Eagles have had a full offseason...
The 2011 NFL Season came to an end with many big name superstars heading to free agency or getting franchise tenders from the clubs they have played for.
Four of these superstars shared something in common. They all are franchise running backs who play important roles in their teams' playbook. Now that the signing period came to end, to get franchised players signed long...

Ray Rice climbed into his white Mercedes and drove out of the Baltimore Ravens' parking lot Monday afternoon to celebrate after signing his five-year, $40 million maximum value contract that includes a $15 million signing bonus.
With a number of PPR mock drafts taking place recently, it’s time to start looking at some of the trends that are happening right now. It’s still fairly early in the process and there’s likely to be plenty more movement, but starting now allows you to properly formulate a draft strategy and then continue to fine tune it over the next few weeks as players continue to rise and...
