The NFL owes Cleveland Browns’ fans some clarity on the Deshaun Watson situation. The Buffalo Bills are the favourites to win the Super Bowl, they’re probably going to walk away with the AFC East, so why do their fans keep talking about the New England Patriots? Fantasy Drafts have already started, and PFF reminds us not to forget about Cincinnati Bengals’ running back Joe Mixon.
NFL Owes Browns’ Fans Some Answers on What’s Happening With Deshaun Watson
It would be nice if the customers knew whether the starting QB will be playing in all, any, or some of the games. The NFL owes it to the Browns and their fans to make a decision for 2022 on Deshaun Watson ASAP. https://t.co/tLLgfpobRR

I normally don’t agree with anything that ProFootballTalk says, but this time we’re on the same page. The Cleveland Browns organization may have sold all their morals to obtain Deshaun Watson, who is currently facing multiple accusations by massage therapists in Houston for sexual harassment, but that has nothing to do with the Browns’ fans. In fact, most of the Dog Pound expressed their anger towards the Browns organization for trading for Watson and making him the highest paid player in the league. However, if the NFL is going to expect fans to spend their hard earned money on game tickets, they need to know how competitive their team is going to be.
Someone Needs To Explain To Bills’ Fans That The Patriots’ Don’t Consider Buffalo A Rivalry Team
Just little brother syndrome mostly. Bills fans just have to accept that they think about the Patriots more than the Patriots have ever thought about them lmao

I totally get the whole divisional rivalry thing, but this tweet nailed it right on the head: Buffalo Bills’ fans think about the New England Patriots way more than Patriots’ fans think about the Bills. Buffalo is a really good team, they’re probably the best team in the NFL, that doesn’t mean that Patriots’ fans are feeling any envy. I’m going to give it to Bills Mafia straight. There is an entire generation in Buffalo that was forced to cheer for mediocrity and watch the Patriots fill their trophy case. I can’t speak for all of Pats Nation, but if New England never wins another Super Bowl in my lifetime, I’ll die a happy man. I not only got to witness, I got to cheer for the greatest dynasty in NFL history. I totally get Bills’ fans having unpleasant feelings towards the Patriots, but I don’t know any Patriots fan that has any ill will towards Buffalo. About half my audience are Bills’ fans, and I encourage you to enjoy what’s happening for you now. You’ve got the best quarterback in the NFL and are the favourites to win the Super Bowl. There’s no reason the Patriots should still be living rent free in your head, because trust me, speaking on behalf of the majority of the Patriots’ fan base, we don’t think about Buffalo.
Fantasy Football 101: Don’t Forget About Joe Mixon
Only players with 1,000+ rushing yards after contact last season
💥 Joe Mixon
💥 Jonathan Taylor

I think sometimes Joe Mixon is the forgotten star amongst running backs in the NFL. Jonathan Taylor, Derrick Henry, and Nick Chubb get the bulk of the attention, but this tweet from PFF reminds us how much of an impact Mixon makes both on the field and in fantasy football. Mixon recorded 1205-rushing-yards and 314-receiving-yards for 16 combined touchdowns in 2021. Whether you’re in a PPR or Non-PPR league, you can’t go wrong drafting Mixon. He’s going to get it done for you in fantasy almost every week. The Bengals are desperately going to want to return to the Super Bowl, and they’re going to make sure their best players are involved in the game plan. Some fantasy owners may be hesitant to take Mixon because of the Bengals loaded receiving corps, but trust me, you can’t go wrong drafting Joe Mixon.
