Every Monday morning -- even during the playoffs -- I bring you my weekly premature NFL power rankings.

After 4 games, look out
At first, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be tentative and not the superior back he once was. But after four games, look out. I would expect him to run wild in the last 12 games, especially when...

The 2012 NFL draft is now just over a week away. Free agency has died down, and teams are shifting their focus to the draft to round out their rosters. The Ravens are no exception. Their primary needs are still the same as they were entering the...

Four NFL teams, four distinctly different situations, and one identical, well-worn audible:
Old quarterback out, new quarterback in.

Every season, a few surprise studs come out of fantasy Siberia to reward savvy owners who had the foresight to select them in the later rounds of the draft. A season ago, Adrian Foster, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Lloyd come to mind. Ray Rice, Miles...

Have the Eagles assembled the "Dream Team," or is this another fantasy football roster built to disappoint?
That's just one of the pressing questions heading into this NFL season.
A few of the others:
Did the lockout truly favor those teams with an...

1. Say what you will about John Harbaugh -- and this week, plenty of Ravens fans had negative things to say -- but he has three undeniable strengths as a head coach. He gets his players to buy into the larger concept of TEAM. He holds them together...

Assuming you are in a six- or eight-team league -- and not one of those screwy leagues that ends in Week 17 -- the fantasy football playoffs have arrived. If your team made the playoffs, give yourself a loud slap on the back.
