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.

Bad breaking news coming out of Vikings practice today, as starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with what was reported to be a non-contact left knee/leg injury. Mike Zimmer canceled practice 25 minutes in, soon after the injury happened, and Vikings players were cursing, slamming helmets, and praying for him before an ambulance arrived to take Bridgewater to the hospital. Zimmer is expected to have a press conference later this afternoon to give additional information. Updates to come as we know more.

What started as a preseason experiment is now an official lineup change: Trevor Siemian will be the starting quarterback for the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos when they kick off the regular season on September 8 against Carolina.

Hello Football Outsiders readers,
We want to thank everyone who has purchased this year's KUBIAK fantasy
football projections, and let you all know about a great new
opportunity to use KUBIAK with an iPhone app rather than needing your
laptop and a bulky spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel.
The app is called Draft Kit IQ from IQ Fantasy Sports. Draft Kit IQ is
free to download and gives you all kinds of options to track your own
fantasy draft or to do a mock draft and see where your favorite
players would fall compared to general average draft position (ADP).

The San Diego Chargers finally agreed to a contract with No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa today. There are no details yet on which side blinked when it comes to the "offset language" they were fighting over. However, a historical look at rookie holdouts by top-ten picks suggests that the holdout won't actually affect the production the Chargers can expect to get from Bosa in his first NFL season.

In a new feature at ESPN Insider, I look at the worst QB situations ever for defending Super Bowl champions. There's a big gap between 47 teams and the 1986 Bears, and then a huge chasm between the 1986 Bears and two Broncos teams, including the current Broncos.
