IR-Designated: Year of the Center

Hey, kids, it's the year of starting centers going on the IR-Designated to Return list. You all knew about Maurkice Pouncey in Pittsburgh. Yesterday, New England put center Bryan Stork on IR-Designated due to a concussion. An even bigger surprise in Minnesota today, where John Sullivan had back surgery today. Both Sullivan and Stork are now out at least through Week 8.

SITE NEWS: Loser League 2015 is Here!

It's the idea so good, The Onion once stole it from us! The Loser League is back for 2015. This year, we've changed the rules: the penalty for wide receivers is now based on a minimum of three targets, rather than a minimum of two catches. So go out and pick up that guy who's gonna get one catch a week, as long as they throw him a couple of incomplete passes too! Teams are due by midnight on Saturday night September 12. Winner gets a free copy of our 2016 KUBIAK fantasy football projections.

Football Outsiders for Madden 16: September 4

Once again in 2015, we have teamed up with EA Sports to bring Football Outsiders-branded player content to Madden 16 Ultimate Team. Each week, we'll be picking out a handful of players who starred in that week's games. Some of them will be well-known players who stood out in DVOA and DYAR. Others will be under-the-radar players who only stood out with advanced stats. Usually, we'll announce the players each Tuesday in the DVOA commentary article, and the players will be available in Madden Ultimate Team packs the following weekend.
