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.

The NFL has suspended Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker for four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.
ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that Welker tested positive for the use of amphetamines.
NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal reports that Welker's appeal was heard two weeks ago.

Hey kids, B.S. Report! Bill Simmons and I talk about the upcoming season, including our picks for the top teams competing for the Super Bowl, the most likely unexpected Super Bowl contender (we're both on San Diego), and the most likely team to go through a "hell season" (Bill says San Francisco, I say Arizona).

It's time for the TENTH ANNUAL Football Outsiders Open Loser League competition. Yes, tenth. Kind of nutty. And we haven't changed the rules at all in all that time. Even though we probably should. We're lazy that way. Come pick your roster of bad (but not bad enough to get benched) players for the first half of 2014, with a shot at winning free fantasy projections for 2015. Let's see how many of you can do this without Trent Richardson on your team.

Hello old friends!
As you may have heard, there was a massive shakeup/purge at Sports on Earth back on August 4th. I was part of a skeleton crew retained by Major League Baseball Advanced Media after USA Today pulled out of our venture, but while I was thrilled to be given the chance to keep working, I fit in to the new reality about as well as a Yankees quarterback. It was obviously in my best interests to move on.
