Philadelphia Eagles Position Preview: Running Backs

The 2015 Philadelphia Eagles somehow managed to bolster their backfield to be even more volatile than last season when they had LeSean McCoy. But with the free agent signings of Ryan Mathews and last season’s NFL leading rusher, DeMarco Murray, the Eagles find themselves with not only the most talented backfield in football, but also the deepest.

San Diego Padres: what happened, A.J. Preller?

This year’s trade deadline was perhaps the most exciting in recent history.

San Francisco 49ers: Can red & gold loyalty create fantasy royalty?

In 2014, the San Francisco 49ers had a disappointing year in many ways. They failed to make the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.

Murmurs that started years ago about team management not getting along with the head coach were non-stop. Combined with losing, it turned...
