Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz looked like he was a shoo-in for the MVP award this season. They were 10-2 going into last week and had the lead against the Rams when Wentz went down with an knee injury. Unfortunately for the Eagles, he has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of this season and possibly the start of next year.
Now that he’s most likely out of the race with three regular season games to go, there is no clear-cut favorite to win the MVP this season.
We look at the top betting favorites and decide if any are worth putting a few jellybeans down on them.
Can Wentz still win the MVP, even though he won’t play the final three games?
I once again hit all the late games and went 1-0-1 ATS on Sunday and Monday nights. I just need to do better on my Thursday and early game picks. I would have hit the Thursday game, but current former Tampa Bay kicker Nick Folk forgot how to use his feet.
This is the first week I have noticed a big uptick in double-digit point spreads. Those will become more rampant as the season goes on, but I didn’t find this week’s double-digit point spreads to be egregious.
Can the Chiefs keep winning and beat the Steelers Sunday afternoon?
Will my Thursday Night Football streak of futility snap this week?
We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season.
It’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks, it will officially be acceptable to wear hoodies in public. I love hoodies, but there’s something freakish about seeing a guy in July wearing one.
The running back position isn’t as deep as quarterback, but you should be able to find some good value late in the draft…but if you want a ‘workhorse’ running back, the pickings are slim.
Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles has been at the top of fantasy rankings the last handful of years. There are a few new names near the top this season, with one second-year running back sitting atop our rankings this season.
Here are our top 50 running backs for the 2016 fantasy football season.
The Rams offense got a face-lift this offseason. They literally traded the face of the franchise (Sam Bradford) for what possibly could become the new face (Nick Foles). It was a trade that left many scratching their heads on both sides of the trade. People are still wondering what is wrong with Foles, that we don’t already know, that Philly would trade for the often-injured Bradford.
The NFC West has been one of the best divisions in the NFL. Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona have all made the postseason at least once (if not all three years) in the last three seasons. The Rams have been stuck in the basement. After selecting high in the last few drafts, are they ready to take it to the next level?
How will Foles fare in his first season with the Rams?

The Colts are going into this draft with a huge question mark at running back. Two seasons ago, they traded a first round pick to Cleveland for Trent Richardson, but that hasn’t worked out…at all. They are now wrapped up in nasty situation in which Indy could try to void his contract.
This draft’s running back class is top heavy. Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Georgia’s Todd Gurley are on top of the list. Will Indy draft a running back in the first round?
