If you fine folks have followed along, you know I received a Festivus miracle last week when the Tennessee Titans defense scored 18 points (thank you, Mark Sanchez) to secure the win against Matt “Money” Smith. I ultimately fell short in that league (more on those circumstances in a moment). I went 2-2 on Championship Weekend, as I again took out “Money” in our NFL.com Experts League. So I’m stuck in kind of limbo, fantasy purgatory similar to the finale of “Lost.” But two championships is pretty cool. And to fight off my NFL Fantasy Live peers for the second time in three seasons is pretty cool, too. Moving on, it should be noted so many fantasy football championships were […]

Fantasy football stopped being fun for a lot of us in Week 16. Though, I’ve long contended fantasy football isn’t fun. You’re gutted when your team loses, and you’re merely relived when your team wins.

Time now to take a look at the unexpected (and expected) from Week 10, and we’re not going to talk about new Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. Although, if you’ve followed my work, you know I love the move and have called for it the last couple of weeks. (Just look back to the 2011 Lakers season to see what an unmotivated Phil Jackson is all about.)

Expect a heavy dose of pressure with press man behind it tonight once again from Arizona’s defense. The Cardinals’ corners typically press the outside receivers, while bringing pressure up the middle.

Danny Amendola is excited to be in and explosive offense under coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Should Kansas City Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis be considered a legitimate No. 2 option in fantasy football drafts?

Les Snead is only concerned with stacking good decisions.

Late Saturday night, we gave you some quick-hitting thoughts from the Cowboys third preseason game, with some reaction and reflections. But we kinda ignored the St. Louis Rams. So… want some Rams tidbits? – I’ve been fairly positive this offseason on Sam Bradford, who is primed for a bounce-back year. Under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, I’m thinking Bradford gets back to three-steps-and-out just like the West Coast QB he used to be. Saturday night, however, was not that kind of night. He was 6 of 17 for 64 yards, and he never looked comfortable. The offense didn’t move. “Of course, we want to be more productive,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “He missed a couple, and then he got hit too much.” That about sums it up. […]

It was just a preseason game, but it didn’t feel like one. I spent Saturday, Sunday, and part of yesterday in Indianapolis, watching the debut of Colts QB Andrew Luck. And no part of that seemed like a normal preseason game. But anyway, it was an eventful few days in Indy… Want some highlights? – Let’s put Luck aside for a second, since he wasn’t the only No.1 pick on the field. Sam Bradford, coming back from a tough 2011, was there, too. And I was impressed. After a season that saw him play just 10 games and have as many interceptions as touchdowns, Bradford looked different. Gone were the seven-step drops and slow-developing plays, and he took a step […]

Expectations were high for Colts QB Andrew Luck’s preseason debut against the Rams. As the No. 1 pick, that would be the case, anyway. But having to fill the giant shoes left by franchise icon Peyton Manning? That ramped it up a bit. “You have high expectations for the guy,” Colts TE Coby Fleener told me, “and he manages to exceed them every time.” Yup. He did. And then some. Luck sparkled in his first game in an NFL uniform, going 10 of 16 for 188 yards with two TD passes and a 142.7 passer rating on 24 snaps. He led his team to a 38-3 win over the Rams, helping them score more points than they did during any game […]

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is familiar with pressure.
No, not the stress stemming from rumors of dating a supermodel.
But the 2010 No. 1 overall draft pick knows the expectations of being a franchise quarterback.

This offseason is alive with rumors of potential movement high in the draft, and it’s no coincidence. Trades in the first round no longer come with the outrageous financial risks of yesterday.

Center Scott Wells has agreed to terms on a contract with the St. Louis Rams, according to a league source.

It has been the NFL’s worst-kept secret that the Rams have been shopping the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. If there was ever any doubt about the team’s motives, it should be long gone.

The Rams undoubtedly hold the key to the 2012 NFL Draft.
