Well, computing Adjusted Games Lost for 2016 will certainly be interesting. The NFL has made a strange decision to drop the term "probable" from the injury report. Instead, players will only be listed as "questionable" and "doubtful." This means that any player with any kind of minor injury will probably be listed as "questionable" even if that player is almost certain to play on Sunday. That's frustrating for fantasy football players, gamblers, and most importantly around here, people who analyze NFL injury trends.

Thanks to Deadspin, which helps us promote Football Outsiders Almanac each year by running one paragraph they like best from each of the 32 NFL team chapters. If you haven't bought the book yet and are looking for a larger preview than just our free Giants chapter download, you can find a bit about every team here.

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

What do you call a fifth-round rookie WR with real expectations? Tajae Sharpe, and there may not be another player like him in NFL history. Tennessee's poor history of developing wideouts has led to a rare opportunity that Sharpe can seize this season.
