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.

Jets Re-Sign Fitzpatrick, Finally

One-year deal for $12 million according to Ian Rapoport. Good for the Jets. Too late to update anything in our book, though.

Le'veon Bell Facing Four-Game Suspension

It's not yet official because of an appeal, but Le'veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for another violation of league drug policy. This time, it's for missing a test, not for failing one. A four-game suspension would be a big deal, both for real football (Pittsburgh is a leading Super Bowl contender) and fantasy football (depending on your league scoring, Bell or Todd Gurley will be the No. 1 running back in our KUBIAK projections before considering the suspension).

J.J. Watt Could Be Out up to 10 Weeks

J.J. Watt suffered a herniated disc working out this week and had to undergo back surgery, and will be out 6-10 weeks. Reports now seem to be leaning on the longer side of that range, which would keep Watt out for the first few weeks of the season. This could be hugely impactful, given how close the AFC South is. There's no division where the four teams are closer together in quality right now. You also have to remember that the Texans still aren't sure who is going to replace Jared Crick. Now they might need two new 5-technique ends for the first month of the season. Yikes.

ESPN: Sneaky Strength for Every NFL Defense

Part II of a preview of the Strategic Tendencies comments and some of the other stats you'll find in the upcoming Football Outsiders Almanac 2016. We've gone through and found one positive number for each offense in 2015. Some of these splits are significant for illuminating the strengths and weaknesses of each team's personnel. Other splits tend to oscillate wildly from year to year, and a great performance in 2015 may not indicate that a team will be equally strong in the same ways in 2016.
