Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/1/11

In recent history, March has signified the first month in the calendar year without an NFL game, and the first in general since July. In 2011, that fact could have a more gruesome meaning. Things are changing this year, and the NFLPA and the owners are going to have to eventually work hard to ensure that games start to kick off in August or September. Anything can happen over the next few days, weeks, and months, but expect to get tired of the rhetoric if a lockout begins this week.

Mediation to resume today… The NFL and NFLPA will resume meeting with mediator George Cohen in Washington today, just three days before the CBA expires, with it coming a potential lockout from the owners and/or decertification from the union. Hope for a deal by that point seems completely bleak, but stranger things have happened. The fact of the matter is that the only people knowing what’s going on in that room are the people in it. We’ll be hearing a hell of a lot about this over the next few days, so be prepared.

  • 12-team NFFC draft results (from 8/30) August 31, 2014
    Here are the results of the 12-team PPR 3rd round reversal NFFC 20-round draft I participated in last night in New York City. I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]
