7 NFL players and coaches in need of a Christmas vacation

Much like Clark Griswald in the holiday classic, Christmas Vacation, many NFL players and coaches are in need of a few relaxing days all to themselves (and that Christmas bonus!). Whether from a disappointing season, injury, poor performance or single-handedly carrying their team through the first 15 weeks, these players and coaches could use a little respite. And probably a large glass of egg nog.

Fantasy Post Mortem: Andrew Luck is the man

Our Adam Rank takes a look back at the fantasy weekend that was.

Fantasy Post Mortem: Philip Rivers struggles again

Start Philip Rivers and all of your Chargers with confidence this week. This is a Norv Turner game where this team rallies for a somewhat meaningless win in October. These were all my rally cries prior to the Chargers game in Cleveland.

So much for that.

NFL fantasy football: Chris Johnson could surprise on TNF

Can Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson raise some eyebrows against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football?

Fantasy Post Mortem: What to do with Cam Newton

Cam Newton is an undroppable in most fantasy leagues, and it’s probably a good thing, too, considering most impetuous fantasy enthusiasts would at least consider dropping him after another disappointing game in Week 5. Like you’re sitting around, drinking a few beers, watching Dexter after the Sunday night game and thinking, “(expletive) it, I’m done with this guy.”

Fantasy Post Mortem: Chris Johnson delivers

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

What is the problem with the Titans’ running game? “It would be easy if it was just one thing”

Just a quick thing before I head out to Cowboys practice (this is called, multitasking). So, I’m covering the Texans-Titans game this week on Sunday, and there are a lot of issues to hit (like this one). One, of course, revolves around the mysterious Titans’ running game. The focus has been on Tennessee’s second-leading rusher, which — unbelievably — is Chris Johnson. The fantasy stud and player formerly known as CJ2K has just 45 yards rushing. That’s 66th in the league. Yikes. What gives? He’s still fast. He’s still got skills. And he’s running behind a Titans offensive line that has allowed just two sacks of QB Jake Locker. What is the issue? Titans RB Coach Jim Skipper explained yesterday. […]

NFL fantasy football: Chris Johnson re-run isn’t entertaining

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson isn’t losing his starting job, so says head coach Mike Munchak. Marcas Grant writes that the fact that Munchak even had to mention that is an unpleasant reminder of Johnson’s 2011 season.

Post Mortem: Robert Griffin III as good as advertised

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.

Titans RB Chris Johnson: ‘Last year, I was so ready to get last year over with’

Often, we get so caught up in this fantasy football world we live in that it’s easy to overlook that there’s so much more reality than fantasy. Last year, for instance, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson held out, then struggled the entire season to hit his stride. Though he ended up with 1,047 yards and 4.0 yards per carry, he wasn’t himself. And he certainly wasn’t the standout back so many had counted on for their leagues. While he had four 100-yard games, he also had seven games in which he averaged fewer than 3.0 yards per rush. It’s easy to overlook how miserable all this made CJ, who has looked completely different this preseason. It’s why he couldn’t conceal […]
