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.

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.

Hey kids, B.S. Report! Bill Simmons and I talk about the upcoming season, including our picks for the top teams competing for the Super Bowl, the most likely unexpected Super Bowl contender (we're both on San Diego), and the most likely team to go through a "hell season" (Bill says San Francisco, I say Arizona).

It's time for the TENTH ANNUAL Football Outsiders Open Loser League competition. Yes, tenth. Kind of nutty. And we haven't changed the rules at all in all that time. Even though we probably should. We're lazy that way. Come pick your roster of bad (but not bad enough to get benched) players for the first half of 2014, with a shot at winning free fantasy projections for 2015. Let's see how many of you can do this without Trent Richardson on your team.

Well, that was a long wait. The Patriots have dealt Ryan Mallett to Houston for a sixth-round pick. I still think grabbing Mallett in the third round of the 2011 draft was a good gamble, it was just a gamble that didn't work out as hoped. Better a sixth-round pick than nothing, I suppose. Houston now has to decide if they want to try to extend Mallett, or do they just wait to see if he ends up playing later this year and how he does.

We're so sorry this took so long, but all the FO player pages are now updated with 2013 stats. That includes both offensive and defensive players. All readers can see the last three seasons; FO Premium subscribers can see entire careers. In addition, similarity scores are now updated to reflect last season's performance. So, for example, you can now see that the most similar player to Brandon Marshall's 2013 is Eric Moulds in 2002, and the most similar player to Marshall for 2011-2013 is Roddy White 2009-2011. Most similar is listed for all readers; FO Premium subscribers get a top ten.

Well, that sucks. Sucks for the Browns, and for all of us who like to watch great football players.
