Fantasy Guru Daily: 2/21/11

There is nothing new on the labor negotiation front in the NFL, but no news is good news when both sides are sworn to secrecy until their meetings over the next week are completed. But the one thing we do know is nobody has walked away from the table yet, and that is a big positive.

Owners, players meet in mediation over the weekend… The NFL and NFLPA met with a federal mediator for upwards of 20 hours over the past three days, with at least four more days of talks scheduled. The mediator requested that both sides keep a vow of silence regarding the talks, and both sides have honored that request to this point. So the only thing we know for sure is the sides are still negotiating, and without negotiations, the chances of a deal getting struck by the March 4 deadline are slim. These talks are certainly a positive, but until either side is allowed to comment, we won’t know just how positive.

As a related aside, we implore you to follow National Football Post writer and former Packer executive Andrew Brandt on Twitter (@adbrandt) for his perspective on the negotiations. As a former front-office member, he knows [...]

    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]
