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.

NFL Announces 32 Compensatory Draft Choices to 16 Clubs

The NFL has announced the compensatory picks in the 2017 draft based on 2016 free agency losses. Big winners this year are the Bengals, Browns, Broncos, and Chiefs, who get four extra draft picks each. The Seahawks also deserve notice -- they only get two compensatory picks, but both are in the third round. They are the only team with two third-rounders.

Starting this year, compensatory picks can also be traded, so this is potentially a big story for all teams.

20 Plays Every NFL Coach Should Steal

Great X & O piece today by Matt Bowen, breaking down 20 plays run by NFL teams that other NFL teams should probably steal. Obviously, not every team is going to run the Titans' or Patriots' QB sweep, but there's a lot of good stuff in here. I'm particularly fond of the Seahawks' 3 Mable to deal with trips.
