Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/9/11

Three days after the Packers won the Super Bowl, it is starting to set in that the long football off-season is here. Still, there is news to cover unrelated to the labor issue, so we will dive into that as we still are dealing with the aftermath of the season, particularly in Pittsburgh.

After seeing his production decline in 2010, the 34-year-old Hines Ward faces two surgeries this week.

Ward, Sanders need surgery … Not only did the Steelers lose to the Packers in Super Bowl XLV, but veteran WR Hines Ward will undergo two surgeries this week, and rookie Emmanuel Sanders will also need surgery.
