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.

    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots? You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]

    Here are the top stories I’ll be following this week in the NFL… Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) Can the Colts maintain their high level of play with 2 starters on the OL out tonight?

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week? It wasn’t a typical Norv Turner offense, more like Seattle’s with Russell Wilson. Teddy Bridgewater was smart about not exposing himself to hits, but he did get banged up in only one start and he might miss the g […]
