The Carr is on the move. An inevitable parting of the roads for Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders gives both sides a much-needed reset. For the Raiders, they get a new QB that Head Coach Josh McDaniels can either develop or begin working with (depending on the route the team goes). For Carr, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It was 16-3. Zach Wilson (9-for-18, 92 yards, 1 INT) looked on at the field at MetLife Stadium, having accounted for 93 yards of total offense and one turnover through nearly three quarters of play. Enter Chris Streveler, certified gladiator and champion of men. Recently activated off the practice squad, the former Winnipeg Blue Bombers star instantly reinvigorated the Jets offense, producing 144 total yards — 51 more than Wilson — in just one quarter of play while not turning over the football. Newly-minted as my hero, Streveler showed heart and grit, and most importantly, that he was willing to put his body on the line and do anything for the players next to him. That’s not something we have seen Wilson do. Wilson doesn’t yet understand how to be a leader and more importantly, can’t comprehend how to read a defense. He is not a starting NFL quarterback, and never will be. Say all you want about arm strength and projectability, but it only goes so far. I have a bottle of ketchup in my fridge that has the size, shape and squirt to be an elite mustard, but what’s inside is simply never going to change. Last night should be a lesson Streveler’nd for us all. Unfortaunely, I don’t think it will be for Wilson. Anyway, here’s what else I saw in another riveting edition of Thursday Night Football.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It was yet another bizarre and dramatic week in the NFL, one highlighted by lowlights: Jimmy Garoppolo (broken foot) is out for the season; Deshaun Watson finally returned and looked absolutely awful, while Lamar Jackson picked up a knee injury that destroyed Week 13 fantasy hopes and dreams. So let’s pick up the pieces to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
My readers of the past couple of decades will tell you this wouldn’t be an authentic Frascella column unless it opened this way: MIKE WHITE, BABY! LET’S GO!! I generally open our weekly foray into target distribution with the NFL “story of the week,” and well, how can it not be my guy Mikey White? […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every time we think we’ve seen it all in the NFL, another wild week roars in and blows us away. Joe Mixon scored FIVE touchdowns in the Bengals’ convincing victory over the Panthers? Tom Brady pulled off another miracle late-game comeback in a career loaded with them? And last but certainly not least… my Jets […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 8 in the NFL was rather telling in a number of ways: (1) The Eagles are completely and utterly legit at 7-0; (2) The Bills and Vikings are as good as their records; (3) The Jets and Giants had previously been playing above their heads and (4) Maybe the Packers, Bucs and Rams are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

It was another wild week in the NFL, one highlighted by Aaron Rodgers’ narrow victory over Tom Brady in the Battle of the Legends and Tua Tagovailoa’s tight win over Josh Allen and his once-invincible Bills in the “Sweat Bowl” down in Miami.

If your Week 2 was anything like what fans of Baltimore, Cleveland, and Las Vegas experienced, then you’re waking up on Tuesday in the depths of despair. Fortunately, the season is young and there’s plenty of time to right the ship once the page is turned. Unfortunately, the waiver wire isn’t all that enticing this week, and there’s an armadillo turning my backyard into the next Holes remake. However, if you’re a relentless quarterback streamer or in a two-QB league, there are some intriguing options for you this week — not to mention some serious finds at the wide receiver position should your league mates not have gobbled them up yet. If you’re in a waiver order-based league and not in dire need, this is a week to stand as firm as Snoop Dogg’s buttcheeks in the TSA line. In deeper formats and leagues utilizing FAAB, proceed with caution. I wouldn’t use more than 15-20% on even the top names listed, although you could validate up to 25-30% if you’re so desperate your season-long competitiveness calls for it. Hopefully, you’re not in that position this early. Onward we go!Please, blog, may I have some more?
