Both the Razorbacks and Tigers rank in the top-10 in Special Teams Efficiency (STE), but they excel in different ways. For Arkansas, its the electric punt and kickoff return teams; for LSU, punting and place kicking. Brian Fremeau breaks down the matchups to watch for in between offensive series.

We take a look at how first-time starters fare against pass defenses of varying quality: just how much will the Pats' defense help Tyler Palko?

Houston has much more in common with the 2007 Hawaii Warriors (a team that flopped badly in a Sugar Bowl matchup with Georgia) than with the non-AQ BCS busters like Utah, Boise State, and TCU that have thrived in recent seasons.

I'm a well-known Mark Sanchez detractor, so perhaps you'll be surprised to see me defending the Jets quarterback in this piece. The main point: There's a difference between horrible and slightly below-average, especially when you're talking about a third-year player who still has potential for improvement.

We know that the score line affects how much teams run the ball. Do you want to know which fantasy backs are most and least affected by that phenomenon? In this week's fantasy column, we detail running back usage rates by score gap; and, of course, the player matchups to watch.

The enigmatic Baltimore Ravens are one of the most inconsistent teams in the league, playing better against good teams than against bad teams. Also, we're sick of writing about the Eagles.

Green Bay may be undefeated, but so far they have a very obvious Achilles heel: pass defense. Can a team with a below average pass defense actually win the Super Bowl? It would be pretty darn rare. And why exactly is the Packers pass defense playing so much worse than last year?

Looking at similarity scores for top young running backs Matt Forte, Ray Rice, and Arian Foster, and trying to figure out who deserves to be paid the big bucks.

In this week's fantasy column, we revisit DVOA-based fantasy strength of schedule -- this time for the playoff run. Elsewhere, it's official: if Chris Johnson doesn't do well this week, just cut him outright.
