262 points allowed, 55 sacks, 21 INTs, 12 fumbles recovered, 8 TDs, 207 points.

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Top 20 kickers

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

You can leave this position until the last round of your draft since the difference between the top-end kickers and the low-end of the top 10 isn’t too much. A season like Zuerlein’s 2017 is an anomaly.
1. Greg Zuerlein, LAR
38 FGs, 44 PATs, 182 points.
Despite missing the final two games of the season, Legatron finished [...]

Sadio Mane.
Roberto Firmino.

1. Rob Gronkowski, NE
1084 receiving yards, 8 TDs, 158.4 points.
Gronk remains the top of the TE class and [...]

NFL FANTASY PREVIEW: Is Zero-RB still a good way to go?

by Dan Bilicki In: Fantasy, Football

A few years, the trend of a “zero-RB” draft strategy was the hottest thing in fantasy football.
Now, does it still hold up?

As many are wont to do after seeing a high-priced squad underperform against an underdog, there are questions being asked about Manchester United after its loss to Brighton & Hove Albion.
But we say, relax.

FREE KICKS: So much has changed, yet so little has changed

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

If you look at the Premier League table, you’ll see very few surprises after the first round of games.
The top five teams from last season all won, each looking fairly impressive doing so. Of those five teams, only Manchester United and Tottenham even conceded a single goal.
While Liverpool sits on top after demolishing West Ham, [...]

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

Not every team has a chance at playing for a European spot in the Premier League and many will be happy to just survive in the top flight for another season. Here are the teams that should be closer to the relegation zone than the top of the table.
Burnley
