Just a quickie on Josh Morgan

You may remember last August I had a post entitled “Please Draft Josh Morgan.” The post was one of the more active ones of the summer, likely based on the title. As August unfolded, however, I become more enamored with Eddie Royal, especially when Morgan had a health issue that definitely prevented him from opening the season as a starter.

If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list.
