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.

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups.
