Why Tyler Conklin Will Be the 1B to Irv Smith Jr.'s 1A at Tight End for the Vikings

With Kyle Rudolph heading to the Giants this offseason after a decade-long run in Minnesota, much of the conversation about who will step up in his absence has been focused on a potential breakout for 2019 second-rounder Irv Smith Jr. in his third season. Smith, who turns 23 in August, has the athleticism and overall upside to see his numbers increase significantly this year as the No. 3 or 4 option in the Vikings' passing game behind Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and perhaps Dalvin Cook.

Fantasy Baseball Closer Report: Week 11 (2021)

It may seem controversial that I am moving Raisel Iglesias ahead of Alex Reyes in this week’s closer rankings. After all, Reyes has 16 saves and a 0.90 ERA, while Iglesias has only 10 saves and a 3.75 ERA. But the surface stats only tell us so much. Reyes continues...

Q&A With Jonathan Taylor: Biggest Lesson From Rookie Season, 2021 Expectations, Playing Alongside Carson Wentz

Stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. That’s something Jonathan Taylor learned very early in his NFL career. Taylor knew he’d have a prominent role with the Indianapolis Colts after they selected him with the 41st pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. What he didn’t know, however, was that Marlon Mack would go down with a torn Achilles during the first week of the regular season.

Fantasy Football Rankings 2021: Sleepers, breakouts, busts by model that predicted Josh Allen's big year

The 2021 NFL Draft saw a record 65 players selected from one conference, the SEC. The first of those picks set a record in itself, as Florida's Kyle Pitts became the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history when he went fourth overall to the Atlanta Falcons. In a Falcons' passing attack that just lost Pro Bowler Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans, how high should Pitts be in your 2021 Fantasy football rankings?

Robert Woods And Cooper Kupp Get No Respect, No Respect At All

Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp get no respect, NO RESPECT AT ALL; when they were kids their parents fed them with a slingshot. One time they met the Surgeon General and he offered them a cigarette. One time at an event their ties caught on fire and someone tried to put it out with an ax.

Every NFL Team's Biggest X-Factor for 2021

Not to make this sound like the beginning of a middle school essay, but the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines an X-factor as a "person that has a strong but unpredictable influence." That would be a fair way to describe a lot of NFL players, but every team has to have an...

2021 Cowboys Fantasy Football Preview: With a healthy Dak Prescott, anything is possible

Record: 6 - 10 (21) WR: Amari Cooper WR22, CeeDee Lamb WR35, Michael Gallup WR54. Before his injury, Dak Prescott was on pace for nearly 6,000 passing yards, which would obviously have been an NFL record. There was a lot that went into that pace that probably won't be sustainable -- the Cowboys allowed 36 points per game over their first five and averaged 47.2 pass attempts per game -- but don't make the mistake of thinking this was all a volume thing. Prescott averaged 8.4 yards per attempt and is averaging 8.3 since the start of 2020, when Kellen Moore took over as offensive coordinator. With both Cooper and Lamb going inside the top 15 WR on average, they'll need to continue to call a ton of passes and to continue to move the ball efficiently to justify it. But given the level Prescott has played at over the past two seasons, that's probably not asking too much. He has legitimate QB1 potential, and Cooper, Lamb, and Gallup could all be must-start options.
