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.

I had a lot of fun putting this one together... you think that teams like the 2016 Browns and 2016 Jets have historically bereft depth charts, but the fact is that three or four teams every year have dismal quarterback situations. Yet we forget them a couple of years later. Remember when Mike Shanahan thought Rex Grossman and John Beck were a good quarterback combo? Remember the Chiefs starting Brodie Croyle in Week 1? Remember J.T. O'Sullivan? Yikes.

Rex and Rob Ryan open up to Jenny Vrentas of the MMQB about, oh, all sorts of things, like the Bills' 2015 defensive struggles, what went wrong in New Orleans, working together, working for Bill Belichick, sleeping in the office in January, struggles with weight, getting fired, and some other stuff.

Our offseason Four Downs series ends with a look at the NFC West's biggest remaining holes and their most notable UDFA signings. The Rams and 49ers have to kick-start their passing games, Arizona's offense lacks a big dimension, and the Seahawks continue to rely on Russell Wilson's magic tricks.

Hey, readers. Our old pal Andy Benoit, former FO writer and now Sports Illustrated writer, is looking for new members for his team of researchers and fact-checkers. The position is on a volunteer basis for anyone looking to gain experience in football media. Much like an internship with FO, it requires an extensive knowledge of the NFL plus the drive to double-check even the seemingly most tedious of facts.
Also, Benoit is looking for a social media guru to help expand his Facebook and Twitter reach.

Our offseason Four Downs series continues with a division-by-division look at each team's biggest remaining holes and their most notable UDFA signings. Does anyone in the NFC South have any pass rushers? Well, the Bucs might, but they still need more players to catch the ball.

Our old buddy Mike Tanier is back with a look at "dumb" NFL strategies that fans hate, and whether or not things like prevent defenses, third-and-long runs, and short field goals are even worth trying.
