Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/18/11

Hey, look at that! Positive news on the labor front! Okay, there is no reason to get excited yet, but any positive news is good news when it comes to the CBA.

Get ready for heavy doses of CBA talk … Thursday brought forth two seemingly important developments in the CBA talks between the owners and the NFLPA. For one, the two sides are scheduled to start a seven-day period of negotiations on Friday. It’s entirely possible that nothing happens and someone walks out well before seven days have been reached, but for now, it’s also possible that we will actually get seven straight days. At the very least, talking is better than not talking. Second, these negotiations will include a mediator, as the two sides have agreed to allow the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service to oversee things. These two developments by no means indicate that a deal will be reached by March 3 or any time soon, but they are certainly both positives, and mediation can only help. We’ll take any positive news we can get.

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
