I was very happy with the way the draft went. The only real regret I have was waiting for a solid backup receiver. I added a very good backup QB in the late rounds over a shaky wide receiver. My quarterbacks are both QB 1′s, Matthew Stafford and Tony Romo. My running backs are Doug Martin, Steven Jackson, Le’Veon Bell and Montee Ball. I really couldn’t believe that Bell and Ball were available in the 5th and 7th round respectively.
My wide receivers are Larry Fitzgerald, Danny Amendola and Vincent Brown. I felt comfortable with Fitzgerald as my number one because he finally has a real quarterback throwing him passes in Carson Palmer. Amendola might have been a reach in the 4th round, b...

OXNARD, Calif. When Jerry Jones made Tony Romo one of the richest quarterbacks in NFL history this past offseason, he wanted to make sure he was getting the whole package. The Cowboys owner famously said that he wanted Romo putting in Peyton Manning-type hours at the office.
And while Jones is perfectly within his right to ask for that sort of commitment, he probably should'...
Atlanta running back Steven Jackson looks to be a perfect fit for the Falcons' offense after rushing eight times for 42 yards and catching a pass for 13 yards in the second exhibition games of the season Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Jackson will give Atlanta's offense a new dynamic in 2013 replacing the plodding Michael Turner. The Falcons' offense looked very strong in posting...
Patriots receiver Danny Amendola looked every bit like Tom Brady's No. 1 receiving option, at least until we see Rob Gronkowski in uniform. Amendola caught six balls for 71 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown strike.Fantasy Spin:As Wes Welker's replacement, 100 catches are certainly possible for Amendola if he can stay healthy, but in four seasons at St. Louis he only completed...
Tom Brady’s knee appeared fine as he led the New England Patriots on a 80-yard opening drive, with a 26-yard scoring pass to Danny Amendola and then a two-point conversion pass to Zach Sudfeld. The Patriots held off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 25-21 Friday night. Brady finished 11 of 12 for 107 yards, one
Forbes once again has named the Dallas Cowboys as the NFL's most valuable team on its annual list, the seventh straight year that has been the case.
I'll be the first to admit that when I do a fantasy football draft, I'm always iffy about landing someone in the first round who is NOT a running back. Let's say that I have the 9th pick and Calvin Johnson falls to me, how do I pass on him, right? Right.Well, fortunately for me and my fantasy football game, I became fully aware that there is still plenty of talent...
Add New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton to the list of Tony Romo doubters, well, sorta.
On Wednesday night, Payton appeared on Jim Rome's new show, simply entitled 'Rome' when the subject of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback came up. Rome asked Payton was the better college quarterback, Romo or himself?
Payton, without hesitation, said himself. "Payton, wasn'...
Tom Brady's knee passed its first big test, his arm was as good as ever and his brain impressed his new top wide receiver.
''Tom's like a coach out there on the field,'' Danny Amendola said. ''He knows every intricacy of the offense.''
Brady completed his first 11 passes, six of them to Amendola, then missed on his last one in the New England...
Saints head coach Sean Payton joined Jim Rome on Showtime’s “Rome” Wednesday night to talk about the NFL, how it felt to be back, and everything Saints related. One of the questions Rome asked Payton was who was the better college quarterback, Payton or his fellow former Eastern Illinois quarterback and current Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo. “Payton — wasn’t close,” the...
The New England Patriots played their second preseason game tonight versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The final New England 25 Tampa Bay 21. On Wednesday, Tom Brady left practice early with a knee injury, and all of New England held its collective breath. Debates started popping up all over social media whether Brady should start or sit the game out. Brady played and hit on...
Everyone across the country is familiar with the high powered offenses of the Oregon Ducks, rolling up scores that look more like basketball. Indeed, there have been a lot of talented running backs to come out of Eugene and make names for themselves in the NFL. Names like LaGarrette Blount, Jonathan Stewart, LaMichael James, and most recently, Kenjon Barner.
Although Oregon State’s...
