We're almost at July, which means people are going to start wondering when the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections and Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 are going to show up for sale on Football Outsiders. I wanted to let everyone know about this year's delays. Both KUBIAK and the book will be delayed this year. We're hoping it's not for more than a week or two, but I'll be honest, there's a possibility the book won't be ready until early August. KUBIAK, at least, should be ready by July 16.

Hey everybody! Time for the third edition of our Playoff Challenge game. Here's how it works: You need to pick a roster consisting of 2 QB, 4 RB, 4 WR, and 2 TE. However, you must pick one player from each of the 12 playoff teams, no duplicates. Whoever has the highest fantasy score during the playoffs wins a copy of Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 and the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections. Standard fantasy scoring, no PPR. Thanks again to former Scramble writer Ian Dembsky for the idea for this game.

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.

If the Iron Bowl and Egg Bowl contenders had swapped schedules this season, would they have swapped records as well?

Denver remains No. 1 in the Football Outsiders DVOA ratings, but New England moves up to No. 2 and has taken over as our Super Bowl favorite.

Peyton Manning breaks the GWD record. Also: Tony Romo comes through in a game with high ratings, Mike Smith's timeout generosity, and dysfunction rules in the NFC's underbelly.

When did Mike Smith become such a terrible coach? And how does a scatter-armed quarterback like Brian Hoyer win so much?

A look at individual stats in key situations shows that Colin Kaepernick is struggling badly this year when the game is on the line.

In very scary news, the Kansas City Chiefs have placed safety Eric Berry on season-ending non-football illness list after doctors discovered a mass on the right side of his chest. The Chiefs have said that a lymphoma diagnosis is the "leading consideration." Berry will see a specialist to determine a final diagnosis.
With all that has happened in Berry's career (three Pro Bowls, wrapped around a lost season due to a torn ACL in 2011), it's hard to believe that he is only 25 years old. We send our best wishes out to Berry and his family.
