The Rise and Fall of DFS

I have to give props to the Outside the Lines people for this really strong feature on the rise and fall of the daily fantasy sports companies over the last 36 months. Whether you liked to play DFS or just hated the ads, there's a very interesting story here. I still would like to see a healthy, well-regulated DFS industry that can stick it out for the long haul. It's fun to play, as long as you understand what it is and what it isn't.

NFL Changes Injury Report Rules

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.
