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.

This week: Shannon Sharpe ticks off Antonio Gates, the Falcons tick off Roddy White, Jim Harbaugh ticks off Ohio State, Ryan Tannehill ticks off everyone, and Peyton Manning takes part in the irrational Brady-Manning debate.

How much do we tend to know after five weeks? Bill Connelly compares five-week data to full-season data to find out if we should be worried about TCU and Baylor.

Peyton Manning threw 28 interceptions during his rookie season. Since then, Manning has turned into a Hall of Fame quarterback, but his rookie season is too often used to dismiss any concerns that arise around rookie quarterbacks who turn the ball over. Jameis Winston is that rookie quarterback right now.

Take the under: this week will see multiple teams with good defenses square off against one another in games including Michigan-Northwestern and Florida-Missouri.

This piece by "Nate Dogg" (not this one -- that would be real news) at Field Gulls uses a good number of animated GIFs to break down just how physically overwhelmed and mentally clueless Seattle's offensive line looked against Detroit on Monday night.

This week on the Off The Charts Podcast: Lots of discussion of the Cincinnati Bengals. Is Andy Dalton on a hot streak, or is this a new level of play for him? Is 2015 just like the other years where the Bengals seemed strong early and then faded? Is it rare for four teams (New England, Green Bay, Arizona, and the Bengals) to be so far ahead of the rest of the league in DVOA? Plus, a look at which running backs and wide receivers have improved significantly in our stats this season, with broken tackle numbers from the Sports Info Solutions charting project.
