Peter King does fantasy advice, and it is a little strange. He likes Darius Watts and Najeh Davenport, that's fine. But Favre and Brady ahead of Vick and McNabb? Maybe he doesn't play in a league where QB rushing counts. And he clearly isn't reading Football Outsiders, because he ranks Portis eighth among running backs and Green third. Remember: RB whose yd/car rises .50 yards from one year to the next tend to drop, on average, .75 yards in the third year. One more question: Since when is Tennessee an offensive that is struggling?
After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
