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.

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games.
