Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/10/11

Welcome to the CBA Daily! While not a lot of positive news have come from talks taking place this week, we have been careful not to overreact knowing that the situation looked grim just one week ago before the sides agreed to two extensions.

NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith is still looking for more financial information from the league.

Day 14 of mediation is in the books … and while the two sides continue to squabble over the amount of financial data released by the league, we did get some interesting tidbits from NFLPA executive DeMaurice Smith. He noted that the league lowered the amount of addition revenues taken off the top from $1 billion to $800 million, although he said that number is still too high because of the lack of financial information needed to agree to that number. As part of the last CBA, the NFL received $1 billion off the top, so they’re now looking for $1.8 billion in their latest proposal.

  • 30 slam-dunk fantasy starters for the playoffs December 2, 2014
    Here is a list of 30 no-brainer starters for the fantasy playoffs. I would imagine that 95% of fantasy players (or more) should start these players the next 2-3 weeks (if healthy) no matter what.
