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.

Denver: great team, or the greatest team? Would you be satisfied with "one of the ten greatest teams?" Plus: hard times in the NFC South, where defense goes to die.

From our own J.J. Cooper in his other life as a writer for Baseball America, here's a list of the top five baseball prospects among current NFL players. Peyton Manning and John Fox certainly wish Russell Wilson had played better in short-season ball.

Thanks to Chase Stuart on Twitter for pointing out this well-written analysis of the state of the New York Jets. There's a persuasive argument here that it's time to move on from Rex Ryan. Personally, I think Ryan did a very good job in New York his first few years but I agree that it is time for a new direction there. And as writer Joe Caporoso points out, when you look just at players brought in during the last two seasons, blaming John Idzik for the problems doesn't really seem realistic.

Why is John Harbaugh so happy? His math-lovin' left guard just told him how much the numbers love the Ravens this year. But why aren't the numbers as excited as the public when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys?

We don't normally throw up news XP for college players, but this is the current Heisman favorite, after all. Apparently, some sort of NCAA rules violation is being investigated.
