SITE NEWS: Update on KUBIAK and FOA 2014

We're almost at July, which means people are going to start wondering when the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections and Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 are going to show up for sale on Football Outsiders. I wanted to let everyone know about this year's delays. Both KUBIAK and the book will be delayed this year. We're hoping it's not for more than a week or two, but I'll be honest, there's a possibility the book won't be ready until early August. KUBIAK, at least, should be ready by July 16.

2014 Football Outsiders Playoff Challenge

Hey everybody! Time for the third edition of our Playoff Challenge game. Here's how it works: You need to pick a roster consisting of 2 QB, 4 RB, 4 WR, and 2 TE. However, you must pick one player from each of the 12 playoff teams, no duplicates. Whoever has the highest fantasy score during the playoffs wins a copy of Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 and the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections. Standard fantasy scoring, no PPR. Thanks again to former Scramble writer Ian Dembsky for the idea for this game.

Russell Wilson and Seahawks Agree to Extension

The Asterisk is getting paid. Wilson and the Seahawks apparently have agreed to a four-year, $87.6 million dollar extension, though we're not sure yet if the announced money is for 2015-2018 or for 2016-2019. It looks like Wilson will now be the second-highest paid player in the game, behind Aaron Rodgers.

The Lingerie Football Trap

What do you do if you are a woman and you want to play competitive football? You get stuck wearing a bikini in a league that doesn't pay you or provide health insurance -- because it's the best competitive football you can play. This is a great bit of long-form journalism over at Grantland by Jordan Ritter Conn. I ended up watching a bit of a "Legends" Football League game when flipping channels a couple weeks ago and the quality of play was no different from your usual Arena Football game.

Greg Hardy Suspension Reduced to Four Games

Arbitrator Harold Henderson has upheld the NFL's suspension of Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy for domestic violence, but has reduced it to four games. I know a lot of people will compare this to Tom Brady's four-game suspension for DeflateGate, or Le'Veon Bell's three-game suspension for a marijuana arrest. The differences do highlight the absurd inconsistency in when the NFL dcides to hand down suspensions, and how long they are. But also remember that the legal process with each suspension and appeal is different.

Ken Stabler Passes Away at 69

The great former Raiders (and Saints and Oilers) quarterback Kenny "The Snake" Stabler has passed away due to colon cancer at the age of 69. There was some confusion about this on Twitter earlier today, but his family has now confirmed the death. Stabler made four Pro Bowls but his career peaked in 1976. When we did the "Top 100 QB Seasons Ever" in our first book, 10 years ago, we had that season at No. 7.
