"I didn’t come back just to be average": PFF sits down with Pittsburgh Panthers QB Kenny Pickett to discuss his decision to return to college football, his goals ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft and what it would mean to pass Hall of Fame QB Dan Marino on Pittsburgh's all-time passing yardage record.
The contest between Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins and Minnesota Vikings CB Bashaud Breeland stands out as a matchup to target, while fantasy managers would be wise to avoid Houston's Brandin Cooks as he goes up against Cleveland's Greg Newsome II.
Projecting fantasy football player ceilings for DFS lineups to determine the likelihood of each individual QB, RB, WR, TE and DST finishing as the highest-scoring player in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season.
If you are looking to avoid highly rostered players in GPP tournaments in Week 2, identifying pivot plays is a huge help, as optimizing cost and rostership percentage are what creates strong yet unique lineups to help you find success.
It’s long been believed that Wan’Dale Robinson would eventually help bring Kentucky to the forefront of the offensive age in college football. And after a short detour via Nebraska, the dynamic offensive weapon is finally starting to make waves as a part of a must-watch Wildcats offense.
The Browns may be without their top two left tackles against the Texans this weekend. Jedrick Wills has been listed as questionable with the ankle injury that has kept him from practicing this week. They also ruled out top backup Chris Hubbard with a triceps injury, which could leave the job to Blake Hance or […]
Early in the fourth quarter of the Rams season-opening victory over the Bears, something peculiar happened. Aaron Donald had a clear opportunity to sack quarterback Andy Dalton. But when Donald got to the quarterback, he spun Dalton around before the QB made it out of his grasp. The whole thing probably worked out worse for […]
The Vikings have issued their injury designations for Sunday’s trip to Arizona and they’ll be playing without linebacker Anthony Barr again this weekend. Barr has been ruled out for the second straight week with a knee injury. Barr missed the final 14 games of last season with a shoulder injury, so this will make 16 […]
On Thursday night, things got heated between Giants receiver Kenny Golladay and quarterback Daniel Jones. Most of the acrimony was coming from Golladay. On Friday, Giants coach Joe Judge said it’s a non-issue. “I’ve talked to both players,” Judge told reporters, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. “Everyone’s kind of dismissed everything. Guys have a good […]
Buccaneers pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul is set to be in the lineup against the Falcons on Sunday. Pierre-Paul went from limited participation on Wednesday with a hand injury to out of practice altogether on Thursday. Downgrades like that often lead to an absence from the lineup come Sunday, but head coach Bruce Arians said that […]
The Saints’ next scheduled home game is in Week Four against the Giants and it appears that will mark their return to the Superdome. Week One’s 38-3 win over the Packers took place in Jacksonville rather than New Orleans because of the impact Hurricane Ida had on the city and the Saints have been training […]
The Cowboys will be missing starting right tackle La'el Collins this weekend as he begins serving a five-game suspension and they will also be without backup tackle Ty Nsekhe. Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said, via multiple reporters, that Nsekhe was taken from the team’s facility to a hospital on Thursday because he was dealing […]
I’m trying to be a little more positive. And I’m currently positive that, when the 2021 regular season ends, coaches and General Managers will be fired. Usually, it’s more than a few. Every Friday, we’ll look at the guys who are, who may be, and/or who are believed to be in danger, grave or otherwise. […]
The NFLPA has named Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen as their Community MVP for this week. Thielen is being honored because he and his wife donated more than $100,000 to restore the stadium lights at Brooklyn Center High School in Minnesota. The school’s lights stopped functioning in 2018 and they were turned back on for […]
Dolphins receiver Will Fuller will not play in Sunday’s game against the Bills and it is unclear when he will return to the team. Miami head coach Brian Flores told reporters in his Friday press conference that Fuller is dealing with a personal matter and is away from the team. “I’ve had multiple conversations with […]
The 49ers lost running back Raheem Mostert for the rest of the season to a knee injury and that means the backfield will have a different makeup this weekend than it did in Week One. It will include third-round pick Trey Sermon. Sermon was a healthy scratch in the opener, but offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel […]
Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton won’t be back on the field any time soon. Coach Robert Saleh said today that Becton is having knee surgery and will be out a minimum of four to eight weeks. The Jets chose Becton with the 11th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft with the idea that he’d […]
With 6:25 remaining in Thursday night’s game, the Giants held a three-point lead and had possession on the Washington 43. They went for the jugular. Receiver Darius Slayton got behind the defense. Quarterback Daniel Jones saw him. The ball flew Slayton’s way. It bounced off his hand and fell incomplete. Joe Buck of Fox called […]
Jamaal Williams spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Packers, but moved on this offseason after the Packers re-signed Aaron Jones to go with 2020 second-round pick A.J. Dillon in their backfield. Williams wound up signing with the Lions, which set him up for a pair of meetings with his former […]
Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins got a second chance to win the game on Thursday night after Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence jumped offside on a 48-yard field goal attempt that went wide right. Should Hopkins have gotten that chance? Although Lawrence clearly went before everyone else on the New York defensive line, one of the […]
When the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV, receiver Sammy Watkins was a big part of it. He caught 14 passes for 288 yards with a touchdown in the team’s three postseason games, including five receptions for 98 yards in the Super Bowl itself. But Watkins dealt with several injuries over the course of his three-year, […]
Former Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez, a first-round pick from Ohio State in 2007, has decided not to seek re-election to his seat in Congress. In a statement issued on Thursday night, Gonzalez attributed the decision to “the best path” for his family. He made it clear that there was more to it than that. “While […]
Discussions about the strengths of the Washington Football Team heading into the 2021 season focused on the defense, particularly on a defensive line featuring four first-round picks who helped push the team to a division title last season. That defense has not been as tough as hoped through two games, however. They were able to […]
A Thursday night report indicated the Browns could be without linebacker Anthony Walker for a few weeks due to a hamstring strain. Now we know he’ll be out for at least three. According to multiple reports, Cleveland is placing Walker on injured reserve. Walker is the Browns’ defensive signal-caller and played all but two snaps […]
It looks like Kenny Golladay isn’t the only Giants wide receiver feeling frustrated about the way the season has started. First-round pick Kadarius Toney played 19 snaps and never touched the ball in Thursday night’s 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team. Zach Rosenblatt of NJ.com noted that Toney had a conversation with head coach […]
