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.

I thought this was interesting; a reader named "Roto Nate" took a look at the last five years of Football Outsiders broken tackle stats to see just how much correlation there is from year to year and whether broken tackles per touch do anything to help predict running backs in fantasy football.

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.

Go ahead, discuss. You think it's over, but let's be honest, the NFL will appeal and this will NEVER END. But for now, Tom Brady plays. KUBIAK update coming by tonight.
