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.

FiveThirtyEight: Terrible Year for Quarterback Injuries

For FiveThirtyEight, I took a look at what has been a brutal season of quarterback injuries in the NFL. Beyond stars such as Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck, we've lost an extremely promising rookie (Deshaun Watson), a former No. 1 overall pick who may have been ready to peak (Sam Bradford), and a veteran on his last legs (Carson Palmer). We looked at adjusted games lost for quarterbacks since 2000 and adjusted the numbers by passing DVOA to get a sense of the quality of quarterbacks lost to injury. 2017 hasn't been the worst season on record, but it's sure getting there, and hopefully we won't have to add much to the injury database the rest of the year.

Film Room: Marshon Lattimore
