Couple of programming notes. This will be the only edition of Hot Clicks today. We will have one edition for you on Labor Day Monday. Then on Tuesday, we're back with two-a-days as we get ready for the start of the NFL season the following day.
Besides taking in some college football, pennant race baseball and doing other Labor Day-ish things this weekend, many of you will be participating in fantasy football drafts. No player is more risky to take at this moment that Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew (who is holding out). For some very important analysis on Drew's situation, this article is a must-read. As for other important fantasy football items, if you're still looking for a team name, these 36 suggestions could help you find one. Lastly, here's a summary of what your league would look like if actual NFL players were in it.
HighlightsCardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd made an impressive touchdown catch last night, although the play-by-play announcer sounded like he was broadcasting a funeral. ... The award for interception of the college football season was locked up on opening night thanks to UMass. ... South Carolina's Justice Cunningham got hit so hard he lost his helmet, but held onto the ball.
