Assuming he lands the starting job over Matt Flynn, Pryor adds a running threat to counter Oakland’s shaky offensive line. Also unlike Matt Flynn, he has the arm strength to hit the long ball passes to Oakland’s speed weapons like Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford if he can improve his accuracy. Continue reading

Megatrick: The argument against drafting Calvin Johnson in 2013

Drafting Calvin Johnson in the first round is a risky proposition this year. There’s no doubt he’s the top of the wide receiver heap, but with running backs as scarce as they are this season, can you survive if you miss out on a running back in the first round? Continue reading

Tomorrow, August 24, Buffalo Wild Wings and Yahoo! Fantasy Football are declaring a national holiday, National Draft Day. A worthy cause, if you asked me.

As part of the festivities, Yahoo! Fantasy Football managers will be able to go to any Buffalo Wild Wings nearby for draft advice, free stuff, and to, of course, draft their teams.

Brad “Big Noise” Evans and Andy Behrens will be in Dallas and Minneapolis to offer their expert advice. Everyone else can join in online with Brandon Funston and Kay Adams as they host the day from the Yahoo! Sports studio, which will be streaming at every BWW location and to online users from 12 to 2 p.m. CST.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a nice little Saturday. I’m canceling my Pottery Barn plans.
