Here’s what I’ll be watching in August

I’ve been kind of swamped this month trying to get all our ducks in a row for the upcoming season, and unfortunately for me I’m dealing with literally 30 things a day, so I haven’t had a lot of time for the blog. As I hope everyone knows, players and teams are on vacation for most of this month, so there’s not a lot to talk about. I myself will be on vacation next week.

  • 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.
