SITE NEWS: 2012 Wisdom of Crowds

Unless you get sadistic pleasure out of watching Richard Bartel short-arm out routes, last night's Hall of Fame game lacked entertainment. Not to worry, loyal FO reader, NFL entertainment returns today in the form of our "Wisdom of Crowds" feature. Over the next four weeks, we'll use our @fboutsiders Twitter account to get your fantasy projections for a player or two each day.

At the end of each week, I'll compile the responses, and have a post the following week about what our readership had to say. Last year, you were pretty darn prescient.

So, if you want to participate, make sure to follow us on Twitter, and check in every day for the next month.
