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.

A good article here by our old buddy Bill Barnwell on what professional football might look like if the NFL were to fall apart. Bill makes a good case for the idea that the thing most likely to change professional football is not the current controversies about player behavior, or even the issue of concussions. The most likely change agent is the transformation of the broadcast television business (and, more and more, the broadcast Internet business).

Today's ESPN Insider feature looks at four surprise 2-0 teams. Carolina and Buffalo look most likely to continue their success into the playoffs; Houston hasn't actually played that well and Arizona still has hellish division competition.

Stomping the Jags leaves Washington No. 2 behind only Denver. But what can we really learn from one big win early in the season, before we are applying opponent adjustments?

Look, it's a sort-of-summarized version of the Pittsburgh chapter from Football Outsiders Almanac 2014!

We always say not to jump to conclusions about a team's true quality after a Week 1 loss. But the meaning of one loss to a team's playoff chances are another issue entirely.
