Don’t let Losman get lost in the shuffle

I don’t have him ranked extremely high, but I think everyone needs to watch Bill QB J.P. Losman closely this season. While fantasy owners have waited for a guy like Eli Manning to progress, only to see him regress, Losman has improved right before our eyes. Losman may not have the Manning pedigree, but this guy has some serious skills and the tools to be a very, very good player.

Losman has a strong NFL arm, he’s mobile, and he’s generally accurate. The Bills really pulled him in last year, but when they let him play, he responded.

    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.
