Vinny’s Variety Pack: The Big Finale

This is my last column ever for The Tufts Daily *cue sad music.* I’ve been informed that it won’t print until Commencement where “hundreds of parents will read it, so you better not be inappropriate again.” Oops, wasn’t supposed to include that last bit. I’ve had an awesome time writing for this paper and I […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Rookie fantasy studs

The draft is TONIGHT. Holy sh*t am I excited. There are a lot of implications that come from the NFL draft: position battles, division superiority, Super Bowl frontrunners, etc. The most fun ones though, in my opinion, are the fantasy football implications. Every year, there are a handful of fantasy studs that emerge from the rookie […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Five early round draft mistakes

The key to a successful fantasy football draft is getting the highest value player for each of your picks. For example, in a draft last year, I got Ezekiel Elliott in the third round of one of my drafts. In case you aren’t aware, this is a CRIME. The man was a top-three back and […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Way too early fantasy sleepers

The Draft hasn’t even happened yet, but the only thing I can think about is fantasy football. As far as I’m concerned, it’s never too early to start preparing for your fantasy draft. One of the best ways to slay your draft is to make sure you snag effective sleeper picks. For those of you […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: A break for baseball

This week, about ten mock drafts came out, so I’ll spare you from hearing my predictions for a little bit. Opening day for baseball was this week, and after reading my friend and fellow columnist Max’s article, I was inspired to talk about baseball myself. Ever since I was a little kid, baseball was my favorite […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: NFC South draft needs

The NFL Draft is exactly one month away from the day I write this article (April 27), which means I have a limited time to talk about the rest of the NFL’s draft needs. Can I do it? No! But I’ll try my best, and isn’t that really the most we can ask of anyone? […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: NFC West draft needs

The first wave of free agency is done and about 95 percent of the biggest names have been signed. I could go and do free agency grades for each team, but that is way too much work. A quick filler if you haven’t been paying attention: The Browns actually did good things, AP is still […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Free Agency finale

Well, this is it. Free Agency will have opened up by the time this is published, so this will be my last article on the topic. Things have been crazy so far, and they’re only gonna get more hectic. I’ve decided to finish up with wide receivers because non-avid fans really only care about the […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Free agency part 2

The franchise tag deadline for the NFL has passed, so forgive me if new information comes out before this is published. Already this week, some big names have been franchise tagged, so instead of projecting where those free agents will go, we will instead analyze how good of a move the tag was. This week I’m going […]


Vinny’s Variety Pack: Free agency, part I

With free agency opening up on March 7, I’m taking a break from draft needs for the next two to three weeks to talk about the NFL’s biggest free agents. While this free agency pool is pretty weak, there are still some big names to talk about. I have a 540 word limit, so I’ll […]
