SITE NEWS: Update on KUBIAK and FOA 2014

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.

2014 Football Outsiders Playoff Challenge

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.

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.

How Lavonte David Became So Inexplicably Good

Here's a good piece from SB Nation about our current No. 1 favorite underrated NFL player, Tampa Bay linebacker Lavonte David. The Miami high school product dreamed of playing for the U, but ended up following a winding road through community college and Nebraska to a home on Florida's other coast.

Marcell Dareus Suspended For Season Opener

We'll just quote this Tweet from @AroundTheNFL verbatim: "Bills DT Marcell Dareus suspended first game of the 2015 season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse." This is concerning an arrest in 2014. The Bills will host the Colts in Week 1 without their defensive tackle.

Dareus has released an apologetic statement through the team's PR account.

Extra Points Will Move to the 15

The NFL owners today officially voted to move the line of scrimmage for extra points back to the 15, making the XP now equivalent to a 33-yard field goal. The line of scrimmage remains the 2 for the 2-point conversion. In addition, returning a blocked kick, fumble, or interception on a point-after try will now be worth two points for the defense.

I hate this rule change so much. Why do we need to make the point-after try complicated? If you want to increase excitement, just move the line of scrimmage to the 1 to encourage going for 2-point conversions.

Four Downs: NFC East

The defenses of the NFC East all had poor secondaries in 2014. Five months later, they haven't gotten much better.
