    Reads Listens Views: Friday the 13th of 2013

    Commentary: Thursday Night’s Game I have several thoughts to share about the Jets-Pats game: Turn on something electronic – a TV, a computer, a phone, or for you super-rich folks, a pair of spectacles – and you’ll that the Thursday Night match-up was a dog. A wet, smelly dog shaking itself all over your living […]

    Views I: The One Specific Type of Play Where Speed Impresses As studly as this play is, without his skills that account for 95% of his talent I wouldn’t have cared less. Still fun to see a 230-lb. back outpace a good angle by a defensive back. By the way stay tuned for my analysis […]

    Now What? Andre Brown is gone and David Wilson will be a hot commodity. The same people hot for Wilson will probably be less thrilled about the Giants running back in the first month if Footballguys writer Matt Bitonti is correct about his assessment of New York’s offensive line. On our Thursday Night Audible podcast, […]

    Thank You I’m fortunate to be at the intersection of two great football communities: fantasy football and draft evaluation. On the whole, the writers I interact with are knowledgeable, hard working, and humble. So it’s an honor when I see these members of my audience also participating in contests like the Jadeveon Clowney event this […]

  • 2013 RSP Reports Sample

    Depending on how you found the RSP blog, you either know me as a football talent evaluator or a fantasy football writer. Studying NFL prospects has helped me understand why a fantasy draft approach like the Upside Down Strategy has value – even in a year where there appears to be a lot of depth […]

    Jadeveon Clowney RSP Contest Winners

    A couple of weeks ago I asked you to name this hit and after looking through a few hundred entries (thanks – no, seriously) I narrowed them down to 20. Some that made the list of 20, but didn’t make the final cut were timely (Sharknado) or a devilish play on words (Smears of a […]

    Another Friday, another Reads Listens Views. This week has its routine mix of football and non-football content. The real world content (as usual) is often so quietly disturbing that I know 99 percent of you won’t even read it. That’s okay, I share it for the handful that do because fortunately for me I don’t […]

    McFadden-Murray Disciple: RB Charles Sims – The Film

    Charles Sims is a disciple of the McFadden-Murray school of running back. Today I’m going to show you why. If I were an unabashed opportunist, I’d claim that Darren McFadden’s disappointing career validated my pre-draft concerns about the Raiders back. But I’m not about being right for the wrong reasons. I still believe I missed […]
