Happy Monday to all of you. I believe John Cena taught kids a valuable less last night at Extreme Rules: If people don’t like you, be willing to be bloodied by a UFC fighter and you’ll win them over.
(Sorry if you already saw me tweet that out.)
Reid overplayed McCoy: Eagles coach Andy Reid told reporters that he “overplayed” RB LeSean McCoy in 2011 and wants to limit his touches this season. Which, of course, should touch off a panic with fantasy enthusiasts everywhere. But don’t be too concerned about it. It’s not like Reid is going to turn into Mike Shanahan and go completely bat-crap crazy. McCoy will likely lose a touch or three every week, but he will still be on the field enough to be a top-three running back in 2012. I already had him pegged behind Arian Foster and Ray Rice, and fourth overall when you include Aaron Rodgers into the mix.
Stevie going in for surgery: Bills WR Stevie Johnson will have minor groin surgery, though I’m not sure such a thing as minor groin surgery exists. And this is noteworthy for a couple of reasons, as first, this will likely keep him out of offseason workouts. Which isn’t great. But most importantly, it gives me a chance to dig out this old clip from “Cheers.”
Feeling a draft: Well, the 2012 NFL Draft is over and our Michael Fabiano has his initial look at this year’s top rookies. As no surprise, Trent Richardson is the top guy. But from there, things get interesting. Michael has Robert Griffin III as the No. 2 guy. I would agree with him, but you know my feeling on Redskins players. And if you don’t, let me sum them up quickly in this video. If you ask me for the guy to watch from this year’s draft, it’s Colts TE Coby Fleener.
For the record, you can submit your fantasy questions to NFL Fantasy Live, Michael Fabiano or me on Twitter. But realize, NFL Fantasy Live has 40,000 followers, and Fabiano has 50,000. Me? Just 13.
