Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/15/11

As the league and NFLPA continue to put their own spin on what happened during negotiations over the last two weeks, we continue to deal with the lockout and the ramifications of having absolutely no player movement to discuss.

If the NFLPA gets their wish, we won't be seeing top prospects like Cam Newton at the 2011 NFL Draft.

NFLPA considering boycott of draft … by “recommending” to 17 top prospects that they skip the annual event. Reports state that instead of the draftees showing up at Radio City Music Hall, they’ll be given the “same experience down the street.” This may include getting the prospects who don’t attend on another network for interviews or having them appear on social media platforms. The league has been very diplomatic in their response, stating that the decision to accept the initiation to attend the draft has always been up to the players. NFLPA Assistant Executive Director of External Affairs George Atallah responded to the backlash from fans against the idea by tweeting, “Lots of interesting commentary on the possible NFL Draft issue. Fans rightfully frustrated. We will set the record straight today (Tuesday).”

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 […]
