Kevin Jones Keeper Value Drops

2/14/07 Update: There’s a blurb on mlive.com today that disputes the story that Jones might not be ready until around midseason. I feel better now, but I’m still very concerned with Jones’ value in 2007 and beyond. We’ll see what happens, but it’s very likely that we don’t see much of Jones in the preseason, so he’s going to be a risky pick no matter what.

    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
