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.

As broken on Twitter by Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, the Arizona Cardinals and cornerback Patrick Peterson have agreed to terms on a contract extension. Peterson indicates the deal is for $70 million over 5 years with $48 million guaranteed, meaning one of the NFL's best cornerbacks will be plying his trade in Arizona for years to game.

Any team can win the Super Bowl in any given year. What would it look like for the league's worst team to somehow win it?

Or as I titled it: A Welcome Distraction.
It would be easy to go with the flow and just shout what everyone else is shouting. The easiest thing in the world. Best of all, we all take turns labeling each other "courageous" for shouting it. But maybe all the overdramatic shouting is part of the problem.

Per Jay Glazer. Reported terms are for five years, $36.5 million. Rudolph, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, was heading into the final year of his rookie deal. Good chunk of change for a player who has never posted a positive DVOA and ranked 44th with -13.9% DVOA last year in the eight games he played last year. Of course, the Vikings QB situation had a lot to do with those numbers. That should be better this year, and we saw last year with Jordan Cameron what Norv Turner can do with tight ends.
