Tom Brady Trying To Improve Mobility, Extend Plays For Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady proved that you can teach an old quarterback new tricks on Thursday night in what wound up being the New England Patriots’ game-clinching play. Brady scrambled out to his left, which helped extend the third-and-19 play, allowing Danny Amendola to break off his route and get open in the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The score put the...

Cordarrelle Patterson finds the end zone in Week 7; use remains limited (NFC North touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Minnesota Vikings Mid-week, Mike Zimmer indicated that the team was going to have to find some carries for Matt Asiata, largely as a result of concerns over Jerick McKinnon’s pass blocking. That’s not how it played out, though. While the snap distribution wasn’t all that skewed (40-27) McKinnon had 19 carries and saw four pass targets, totalling...

Percy Harvin is Jets' problem now, which presents Russell Wilson new set of issues in Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks cleaned up a problem in their locker room. Now they have a new one on the field. Whatever tension Percy Harvin caused in Seattle – no matter who he punched or didn't punch, irritated or didn't irritate – he could stretch a defense like few other players in the NFL. The same can be said for Golden Tate, who left Seattle via free agency. The Seahawks...

Matthew McConaughey ‘Loves’ Redskins Nickname, Says Logo Gives Him ‘Oomph’

Matthew McConaughey, whose opinion apparently is relevant to the matter, favors keeping the Washington Redskins nickname and logo. Sure, all right. McConaughey, who hung out at Redskins camp last summer, sat down with GQ for a cover story in the November issue. The conversation turned to fatherhood, which naturally led to a discussion of the NFL team’s name controversy. (Don...

Fab Five: The best games on the NFL slate in Week 8

The leaves are turning. Halloween decorations are up throughout the neighborhood. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. What do those things signal? Football games are getting more and more important. This week certainly backs up that notion, as the NFL’s slate of games features plenty of match-ups with playoff implications. That may sound nutty in Week 8, but that’s...

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Roddy White sees heavy second half usage on quiet day for Julio Jones (NFC South Touches and Targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Atlanta Falcons The other shoe finally dropped with Antone Smith, who finished Week 7 with five touches and nine total yards, on the field for a total of 11 of 69 offensive snaps. No doubt, anyone who started Smith counting on the TD streak continuing is still kicking themselves today, but, the narrative here hasn’t changed. He remains an explosive back...

Kyle Orton's mission: get the ball to Sammy Watkins (AFC East Touches and Targets Week 7)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Buffalo Bills The silver lining for C.J. Spiller owners is that they can now stop being frustrated by the fact that, despite drawing the start, it took Fred Jackson’s injury to get him his first carry. With both Jackson and Spiller out of the game, Anthony Dixon was the team’s primary ball carrier and acquitted himself fairly well with 16 touches and...

What has changed since the last time the Eagles and Cardinals matched up

One of the biggest wins of the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2013 season came against the Arizona Cardinals at Lincoln Financial Field on December 1. The 7-4 Cardinals came in with a tough defense that provided maybe the biggest test for unproven quarterback Nick Foles at the time, and Foles delivered a solid game. The Eagles jumped out to a 24-7 lead in the third quarter and survived a...

DraftKings: To The Lynch, Wench!

If you know anything about me, or at least have read more than a few articles, you'll know that I have a few movies in my referential lexicon that I lean on heavily. Number will will probably always be Anchorman. I mean, seriously, within 17 weeks of fantasy football, San Diego gets referenced at least 17 times. How could you NOT go with the German definition when presented...

Snoop Dogg is back on the Steelers bandwagon, says team is ‘click-clackin’

It wasn't too long ago that Snoop Dogg ripped the Steelers and flushed their 2014 season down the toilet in a profanity-laced rant. He has never been fond of OC Todd Haley, and after the team's Week 4 loss to the Buccaneers, Snoop had plenty of four-letter words for Haley. And at one point, he said he even considered watching soccer and tennis in place of football. And...
