Punters in Perspective: Coffin Punting - Ben Stockwell
Having been so dominant in the hang-time standings on open-field punts, you would perhaps expect to see Mike Scifres toward the top of the rankings on coffin punts too, but he is instead below the league’s average, getting more than half a second less hang-time on his 23 coffin punts than his 33 open field punts.

Fantasy Football PPR Leagues: Using RB Involvement - Dan Schneier
he Chargers finished with 122 targets to their backs and the seventh-highest TTP. Their offense made Danny Woodhead a PPR star, as he racked up the second-highest TTP in the entire NFL on route to 609 yards on 76 receptions. Woodhead was effective in this role, and it should stay the same in 2014.

McCoy's task is to push the Chargers a bit farther in 2014, although San Diego did pretty well to get as far as it did last season. McCoy's Bolts got hot late in the season, winning five of six to make the playoffs, then upsetting the Bengals once they got there. McCoy tutored Tim Tebow in 2011, worked with Peyton Manning in 2012 and played a huge role in Philip Rivers' Comeback Player of the Year effort last season.
