Data Points: Flacco among league’s elite QBs?

Joe Flacco wants a longterm extension soon; the Baltimore Ravens prefer to wait. Opinions have been somewhat divided on Flacco as to whether he’s a franchise-caliber quarterback or not.

Pick Six: Better choices for HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’

The Buccaneers are reportedly the front runners to be the subject of this year’s “Hard Knocks” on HBO. Not a terrible choice. But we think we can do better.

K-State’s Coffman has lofty shoes to fill

Carson Coffman took over for Josh Freeman as Kansas State’s starting quarterback after Freeman was drafted No. 17 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009.

A look back at Day 1

As we wrap up Day 1 of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, we’ll leave you with a few thoughts (some random), observations and highlights from what we’ve heard.

Bucs GM credits Freeman for sparking turnaround

The Buccaneers’ concerted effort to have a younger roster centered around QB Josh Freeman worked out well, allowing them to improve from 3-13 to 10-6. But the swift turnaround didn’t shock general manager Mark Dominik.

Newton more McNabb, less Russell says NFL exec

One of the more intriguing names in the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft is Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton. Not only regarding where he’ll be drafted, but the inevitable comparisons to failed (so far) quarterbacks JaMarcus Russell and Vince Young.

Bench Lloyd, start Raiders D because of Tebow

The Broncos will go with QB Tim Tebow, meaning that the Raiders defense will become an excellent play against the rival Broncos. This also means that you will want to bench WR Brandon Lloyd, which should probably be viewed as a good thing considering he has struggled in recent weeks.

Owners will know about Rodgers on Saturday

If you survived the loss of Aaron Rodgers for most of last week’s game – and his 2.34-point performance – you should at least know his status well before his Week 15 contest in New England. According to the Packers official Twitter page, the decision on Rodgers’ status will be made on Saturday. That’s good news, as the game is slated for Sunday night. If Rodgers is expected to start, obviously you put him into your lineup and don’t think twice about it. But if it’s announced that he’ll be inactive, you’ll have to resort of other options. Luckily, there are some good ones still on the waiver wire in most NFL.com leagues. Based on the matchups, Josh Freeman (41.5 […]

Cassel may return, but his fantasy season done

The Chiefs are apparently eager to rush QB Matt Cassel back into the lineup after an appendectomy. But if you saw QBs Brodie Croyle and Tyler Palko play against the Chargers, you can certainly understand why.

Bucs’ Freeman an option if you have Cassel

The Chiefs announced that QB Matt Cassel underwent an appendectomy Wednesday. The procedure was successful according to the team, and the Chiefs said they expect Cassel to return to work this week.

What does coaching change mean for Orton?

If you advanced to the fantasy playoffs with Broncos QB Kyle Orton leading your team, congratulations. Especially after yesterday’s disaster. What was that, two points from Orton?

Orton owners should worry about Tebow

Tim Tebow was a mild irritant for fantasy owners when he started sneaking touchdowns away from the other Broncos you actually had on your team. But Tebow could develop into a full-blown fantasy rash if the Broncos continue to falter down the stretch.

Freeman playing well, could be a top-10 QB

Pulling in a couple of fantasy thoughts from the Twitterverse: TD, Peyton Hillis. The man is matchup proof! 8 carries, 52 yards, TD vs. the Jets. Wow. LeGarrette Blount on pace for a huge game — 78 yards, TD on six carries. Someone named Josh Vaughan just scored for the Panthers. He was on the practice squad earlier in the week! Mike Sims-Walker injured…bad news for fantasy owners if he can’t come back … Chad Ochocinco scores a TD. Figures. I benched him this week … Josh Freeman is so underrated. Another TD. Do you guys think he could be a top-10 fantasy QB next season? Where do you guys see him being drafted in 2011? Round 5? Round 6? […]

Brady has foot sprain; time to sit him?

Tom Brady is expected to play against the Steelers, but should you play him on your fantasy team?

Freeman: ‘We have a lot of confidence’

Josh Freeman joined “Around the League” to discuss the Buccaneers’ win over the Bengals, the team’s 3-1 start to the season and why the team expects to play well.
