The Green Bay Packers Re-Sign QB Matt Flynn

After failing to snag a starting job with Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo, Matt Flynn will again return to the team that drafted him, the Green Bay Packers.  He will serve as the likely backup to Aaron Rodgers for at least one more season while Scott Tolzien competes for clipboard holding duties. This was the best possible move for both the Packers and Flynn. After his impressive game...

New York, Stock Up On Canned Goods, CJ2K Is Approaching

Well, who woulda thought, something in the NFL of consequence has actually happened. It's been days. DAYS! I mean, there was Antonio Cromartie's birthday bash in Vegas with his wife and pals. By pals, I'm assuming they are referring to his bakers dozen amount of kids. The party had quite the twist too (because Vegas: where twists are legal and cost five dollars), with...

Sophomore Wide Receiver Showcase

On a scale of interest ranging from salary cap long division to the mention of a role play exercise at work trainings, Kenny Stills and Terrance Williams rank at about an 8 for me. I find myself gravitating towards taking a closer look at both as next season closes in. While Williams has created a sizable market for his services, Stills remains a cheaper option with less intrigue...

Sidney Rice Re-Signs With The Seahawks

According to both Sidney Rice and Russell Wilson, via their twitter accounts, Rice will be rejoining the Seattle Seahawks in 2014.  The Seahawks let Rice go in February because he wasn’t living up to his high price tag, were originally open to the idea of signing him back at a much lower cost. Rice tried to test the market and even recently visited with the New York Jets, but...

The Daily Haze: How Do Bad Offseasons Affect Fantasy Football Owners?

Fantasy football is a value-driven enterprise. Owners who can see value and draft value, even in the face of preconceived notions and popular opinion, often fare better than owners who cannot. Sometimes, players do irreparable damage to their fantasy football value on the field. And sometimes, they do it off the field. Such could be the case for two players this offseason: Ray Rice...

A New Receiving Crew In Carolina

Every offseason, teams acquire new talent to strengthen weak areas from the previous year. The Carolina Panthers had a successful season and made the playoffs in 2013, but a clear weakness was their receiving corps. Carolina finished with 190.2 passing yards per game which placed them 29th overall in the regular season and finished tied for 15th in passing touchdowns with 24. The...

Center Alex Mack Signs Monster Five-Year Deal With Jacksonville

One of the premiere centers in the league, Alex Mack, signed a monster five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth approximately $42 million dollars. Of which, $26 million is guaranteed.  For the transition-tagged Alex Mack, this signing is likely just temporary. The Cleveland Browns have exactly five days to match the deal if they want to continue to employ Mack. And by...

The Daily Haze: Vintage Denver Broncos Jerseys

The new Denver Broncos’ jerseys are not terrible. Big fan of the orange tops. But the old ones still are so much better, because of the helmet color and logo. Ironic that Peyton Manning has played for two teams with horses for mascots given his facial structure, no? Don’t get upset that I just took a shot at the length of Peyton’s face. I’m allowed, because I’m of a similar...

TE Ed Dickson Signs One-Year Deal With The Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers add to their terrible receiving options by signing perennial fantasy disappointment, Ed Dickson, former TE of the Baltimore Ravens. The one-year deal is worth $730,000. Everything about this signing screams desperation. They need receivers so bad that they have signed the likes of Jason Avant, Jerricho Cotchery and now Ed Dickson. If there is a team that gets...

Quarterback Rankings Recap

Now that we have unleashed The Fake Football’s 2014 Quarterback Rankings, we can take a step back, exhale, and have a little discussion about the state of our rankings. I cannot speak for the Chetster (I tried that once and the subsequent caning was not fun), but there were a few players I personally found notable as I scanned through my own 2014 quarterback projections and began...

Nate Burleson Headed To The Dog Pound

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver, Nate Burleson, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns. Burleson has missed a total of 17 games over the past two seasons with the Lions. Over 9 games in 2013 he was able to rack up 39 receptions for 461 yards. Even though Burleson is clearly in the downturn of his career, he should be able to fit in nicely at the slot for the Browns...

The Michael Vick Effect: New York Jets Running Backs

When Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets, my first move was to pat myself on the back for making an aggressive Eric Decker projection the week before. Unfortunately, my second move was to do some light statistical research. For his career, Vick is the owner of a 56.2% completion percentage, which actually makes it fair to wonder just how much of an upgrade the Jets (and their...
