Fantasy Guru Daily: 3/22/11

If you have been anything like us at FantasyGuru.com during this lockout business, we hope you learned to stop checking Twitter every five seconds to avoid overdosing on rhetoric and BS. Honestly, we have become 500% more productive in the short time since the “union” “decertified” and the owners imposed a lockout that might not actually be legal (we’ll see what the courts say about that). The point is that it’s still March, each side of the argument is applying the full-court press right now (as expected), and April 6 remains the next benchmark day in NFL labor strife. We could see negotiations before that day, but if the rhetoric is to be taken at face value, we wouldn’t count on it.

NFL claims decertification is a manipulation of the law… This is nothing new, but the NFL’s legal team asserts that the NFLPA decertified strictly to manipulate the law in order to file a lawsuit and gain leverage in labor talks. Obviously, that’s exactly what happened, but it will be up to courts to decide whether or not the players had the right to do so. If that’s the case, the courts will lift the lockout and we’ll have football [...]

    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. 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 […]
